Around The... Blogosphere??

Hey look everybody - it's a Trebor post!

To some that I have the pleasure of talking to, I talked about a new blog that I frequent - Washington Redskins' tightend Chris Cooley's - his latest post is even more reason.

In reading some of his posts you get a sense that this is a down to earth guy, almost like an average joe if you will. Not really caught up in the millions of dollars he’s making and without the pro athlete attitude. It’s refreshing. It’s also interesting too see a players perspective on these things behind the scenes (I find this picture hilarious). He’s been writing about mini camps, draft day, the owners and the CBA… and then he also throws in blogs about poker night and also his hot wife.

When I first started reading his blog back when Jessica Simpson was bringing defeat to the Cowboys, he answered the question who would win in a tag team fight between Tony/Jessica and him/girlfriend… “The tag team match would start off with Christy and Jessica in the ring. Someone would come out of the stands with a cooler of beer and a couple of stools for Tony and I. We would proceed to sit ringside and high-five while clothes were furiously ripped off”. He also put in pictures as well... very helpful

I was going to send something last week, basically about Kobe "I don’t need to play for a full game" Bryant, and how attitude really is everything in pro sports. There were also some great videos of Bruce Bowen getting schooled and Manu being a bum… but with the shift to an all football blog, like everyone else when it concerns the NBA. I’ll take on the attitude of ...who cares.

Ed. Note - First of all, I don't think any post about Chris Cooley would be complete without this picture...

As terrifying as that picture might be, any man who can rock those shorts and get away with it is alright in my books.

Secondly, perhaps I should have specified about the football only rule. I will only be writing about football from here on out. But if anyone should want to send something in about one of the lesser sports, they should still feel free. Like, say a championship series in which one of the teams has yet to even score.
