Originally, I thought the two worst moments in the Eagles' loss to the Bears last night was this embarrassing throw by Eagles punter Chas Henry on a fake punt, and ESPN's awful camera work on said play. However, these two things were topped by the injury to Eagles cornerback Asante Samuel. Samuel suffered a lacerated groin in the second quarter, but actually returned to the game a short while after the injury.
Call Of The DayEarly in the NFL season, Hot Clicks featured a tremendous call from Cardinals Spanish radio announcer Gabriel Trujillo on a Larry Fitzgerald touchdown. Here is Trujillo's call of Patrick Peterson's game-winning punt return touchdown from this past Sunday. (Thanks to Keith Morris, of Salt Lake City, for the link.)
That's A Big ShamrockIt makes sense for Notre Dame to wear something bizarre this Saturday since its facing Maryland, which has set the standard for bizarre attire this year. This is the helmet Fighting Irish players will wear.
ScaryBruins forward Danielle Paille was nailed in the face with a slap shot last night. The amazing thing is he was wearing a shield, but still ended up a bloody mess.
