A lot of talk was given to Michael Vick, but who is policing the abuses of these animals so their owners can make Steelers’ videos?  This is just sad!!

 

Please be aware that a few of these are a bit graphic.

I’ve been a little slack on my posting this week, but I have a good excuse.  This is my birthday week and I have been on vacation (and otherwise celebrating).  I did a little research for this “birthday” post and it turns out that Virgo is an unpopular zodiac sign for today’s NFL quarterbacks.  Other unloved signs are Gemini, Leo, Scorpio, and Pisces.  Hmmm…why do you think that is?  Below are the more popular ones and what that sign “might” say about them.  Now excuse me while I go polish my dancing shoes – it’s party time!

Ok, it’s time for a weekender!  This week we’re focusing on “pimp suits”.  Pimp suits are extra customized, sometimes extra colorful, and in the minds of those wearing them – extra fly.

If there was a Super Bowl of NFL pimp suits, that game would be a battle between former players turned commentators Deion Sanders and Michael Irvin.  Who do you think wins?
