Cowboys spent millions on a luxury bus?

Now, in the event the Cowboys throw anyone under the bus, they can do so in style. The team's new high-profile acquisition, dubbed "The Elegant Lady," is scheduled to arrive in Indianapolis on Tuesday for the NFL scouting combine. ... Club officials are tight-lipped on the cost. But this model lists for $1.5 million to $2.5 million, depending on how it's finished out. Anyone who has seen the subtle and often expensive touches the Jones family incorporated into Cowboys Stadium can assume this project also pushes the upper end of the scale. The luxury bus made its debut this month in New Orleans for the Super Bowl. Former Cowboys star Larry Allen sat on one of its three plush couches, watching one of the vehicle's nine TV screens.

Inge 'crazy enough' to try MMA

So much for carefully controlled rehab programs for Brandon Inge, who underwent extensive right shoulder surgery in September. He began mixed martial arts training with Mike Barwis, a Michigan-based strength and conditioning coach. ... [Inge] trained with Barwis during the winter, as did fellow professional baseball players Mitch Maier, Ryan LaMarre and Alan Oaks. But they didn't join Inge in cross-training. ... [Said Inge:] "People were like, 'Nuh-uh.' Sparring, going at each other, takedowns. On the mat is the hardest part. You are battling for body position, trying to control his hands, because if you get in certain areas he'll put you in an armbar in two seconds. Nobody wants a part of fighting (Barwis). I'm crazy enough that I don't care." (FOX Sports) Comment

How Kobe nearly became a Piston

The post-Shaq era could also have been a post-Kobe era. [After all the anger and angst and fury] had inspired Kobe Bryant to make a trade demand, Jerry Buss finally called his superstar guard to the owner's home in the Los Angeles hills on an autumn evening in 2007. The Los Angeles Lakers had found a trade for Bryant, but Buss warned him that it wasn't to one of his selected destinations. "Detroit," Buss said. ... Looking back, Bryant isn't sure it would've mattered whether it was Detroit or Chicago, Dallas or New York. In that moment, in Buss' house in the hills, it washed over Bryant how much staying a Laker for life meant to him, how no matter how dire the state of the franchise seemed, that Buss had a history of restoring the Lakers.
