Braden sends A-Rod peace offering

Perhaps Dallas Braden is more upset with his A's now for marketing a "Get Off My Mound" T-shirt than he is with noted mound-crosser Alex Rodriguez. Asked last night if he had talked with Rodriguez since the April 22 incident when A-Rod crossed the mound on his way back to first after a foul ball, Braden said, "No, I must have lost his phone number." A few minutes later the lefty was seen boxing up an autographed poster and some other goodies that were sent over to the Yankees clubhouse as a peace offering to A-Rod. (New York Post) Comment

In a video directed and edited by "Marty B," Bennett has fun with a large beard, and then refers to himself as the known terrorist. Bennett was fined by the NFL team in 2009 for another video that featured profanity, derogatory remarks toward blacks and gays and mentioned Jerry Jones, Tony Romo and Jason Witten.
