Watch the Bob Costas Entire interview with Jerry Sandusky

There’s a lot of things you could say about this Jerry Sandusky interview with Bob Costas last night. Costas said later to Dan Patrick that he was expecting to interview his attorney. It was Sandusky’s attorney that offered up the former Notre Dame coach. Everybody is asking, “Why on earth would you do that?”

This isn’t safe for work, and very graphic in parts.

Alex.. The Worst 7-1 Quarterback In History…

About Alex Smith, Lowell Cohn’s mantra is “he’s so limited.” Limited, as if Alex were some sort of contest winner plucked from the stands…and who gets to line up behind center as a promotional stunt. I’m getting tired of it. Certainly the 49ers are not seriously thought of as one of the league’s elite teams. Especially not elite is their quarterback. So who’s better than Alex? How about Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady, Michael Vick, Drew Brees, Cam Newton, Andy Dalton, Sam Bradford, Joe Flacco, Matt Ryan, Ben Roethlisberger, Josh Freeman, Mark Sanchez, Eli Manning, Philip Rivers, Matt Stafford, Tony Romo, Matt Schaub, Colt McCoy… did I forget anyone? No, Alex is at the very bottom of the list. The bottom. We get it. He’s not 6’5”, he’s not strong armed, he’s not a superstar, he’s not a glory hog. Don’t you see, that’s the beauty of it all. If you’re the Eagles, the Lions, The Bucs, The Browns, The Seahawks, The Redskins or The Bengals… you just got beat by a team that has Alex in charge. He’s not anything you like… but he is something you’re not. He’s 7-1.

If I Offended Anyone…

Tiger Woods’ former caddie Steve Williams was in the spotlight again. His racial slur aimed at Tiger caused quite an uproar at a caddies’ awards party last week in Shanghai. He says he’s not a racist, and I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt on that. But he gave one of those weak “If I offended anyone” apologies that always sounds like a non-apology. Though comments at the award-roast were supposed to be “off the record”… here’s some Breaking News for you Stevie: Nothing is off the record. Were your comments offensive, stupid and crass? Of course. Will they have an effect on world events? Probably not. But you obviously put your new boss, Adam Scott, in the uncomfortable position of having to answer questions about your actions…. and I’m sure he has better things to do.

Poker is King Tonight

It’s all over tonight. In a few hours, we’ll know the holder of the most prestigious poker title in the world.. when the Main Event Champion for 2011 is crowned in the World Series of Poker. A field of more than 6800 players, each laying out $10,000 to compete in poker’s biggest championship… is now down to three. The chip leader is Pius Heinz, a 22 year old from Germany (107,800,000 chips). Then it’s American superstar Ben Lamb (55,400,000). And finally, Martin Staszko of the Czech Republic (42,700,000). Of course, the prize pool is off the scale. The “disappointed” third place finisher collects about 4 million dollars… for second place, it’s  around 5.4 million. And to the Main Event Champion… 8.7 million fisheroos. You could win the Masters, The Kentucky Derby and the Daytona 500 in the same year…. and not have $8.7 Million.  Yikes. Catch the Final Table action tonight on ESPN.

Watch Joe Montana and Ronnie Lott Comment on the Current 49ers

Tout used to be just the place Shaq made announcements. Now, it’s gaining a lot more steam. 49ers legends Joe Montana and Ronnie Lott sat down to discuss the current state of the franchise. Montana, as one example talks about Frank Gore set to become the all time leader in rushing for the team.

49ers Bandwagon Is Getting Crowded…

The 49ers have been so irrelevant the past ten years or so… I knew it would take a while for their 6-1 start to gain some traction. Being under the radar for weeks was great for Jim Harbaugh. But, inevitably, the “experts” are starting to take notice. Matt Barrows wrote that no less than NFL film guru Greg Cosell says Harbaugh is attacking with formations and calling plays he has never seen in the National Football League… and Greg has been paying attention to this stuff for three decades. I think you know what’s coming next… especially if the 49ers continue to play well. The high profile pundits will bring their satellite trucks to Santa Clara.. and want precious time with Harbaugh. If it were up to me,  I’d say stay on the East Coast and keep fawning over the NY Giants, the Steelers, the Eagles and the Jets. Oh, and get off our lawn! Sorry…

Watch As Giants Catcher Buster Posey Gives An Update on His Rehab

Buster Posey is always level headed. You aren’t going to hear him scream and yell and do cart wheels over anything. He uses that typical, even keeled approach when talking about his rehab, and how it’s going in Arizona. It seems like he’s making really good progress, and doesn’t want to focus on the past.

Raiders Update-Injuries/Soldout Broncos and More

Alright Raider fans…here’s your latest update for Sunday for the Denver Broncos game. First of all,  you have to wonder about the health of Darren McFadden. He could be ready to go, but I think they’re going to preserve him for next Thursday’s game against the San Diego Chargers. Why not? You have Michael Bush ready to go. Kevin Boss and Marcel Reece look like they’re good to go on Sunday but Will Sebastian Janikowski or Rolando McClain be available? It also looks like Sunday’s game is pretty close to selling out. That would be four home games in a row, which hasn’t happened since 2008.

It will be interesting to see how much Carson Palmer has improved over the bye and what T.J. Houshmandzadeh looks like too.

Please Keep Ignoring The 49ers…

This doesn’t surprise the Faithful who follow the Niners. After last week’s NFL action, most of the pundits couldn’t stop talking about the Philadelphia Eagles or the New York Giants… Oh look at the Pittsburgh Steelers, Rex Ryan’s Jets… How ‘bout the New England Patriots and yeah, the Detroit Lions are back! The 49ers get nary a mention, and I suppose that’s just what Jim Harbaugh wants… to stay completely under the radar, to be an afterthought. That’s fine. But I heard a couple of sportscasters struggle through the 49er-Cleveland highlights.. and one guy says  “that’s Isaac SOPO-GO-AH…” You idiot… that’s Isaac SOPO-AGA. But what do you care? Way to do your homework.
