Stan Musial’s funeral took place today. The eulogy was given by Bob Costas, who Musial had specifically asked to speak. He started out with one of the better Yogi Berra quotes you’ll ever hear: ”Always go to your friends’ funerals. Otherwise, they won’t come to yours.” And the rest of it was excellent.
The Dallas Cowboys are prepared to hire former Tennessee Volunteers head coach Derek Dooley as Dallas’ new wide receivers coach, sources told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
Dooley was fired in November after posting a disappointing 15-21 record over his three-year tenure with the Vols. His three straight losing seasons were the longest such stretch of futility for the storied program.
Dooley will take over in Dallas for Jimmy Robinson, who was not seen with the rest of the Cowboys staff this week while they evaluated players at the Senior Bowl.
Robinson has been Dallas’ assistant head coach/wide receivers since 2011, joining the team from Green Bay after the Packers won Super Bowl XLV.
Robinson has helped develop Dez Bryant, now the Cowboys’ top receiver. A source told ESPNDallas.com’s Todd Archer that Robinson could move into a consultant role with the team after a 23-year run as an assistant coach with six teams.
Dooley was Miami‘s tight ends coach when Dallas head coach Jason Garrett coached the Dolphins’ quarterbacks under head coach Nick Saban in 2005-06.
Well ladies and germs, it’s officially Super Bowl Week and you know what that means? It means it’s time for some unforgetable, expensive commercial ads that will be played during the Super Bowl. At the price of a 30 second ad, you know these have got to be good right? Well, maybe.
An interview with Oprah Winfrey was designed for the disgraced rider to come clean about his record of using performance-enhancing drugs. Instead, CBS News reports that Armstrong in fact weaved another web of lies.
