Cowboys consider Pacman return
Apparently the door has not been completely closed on cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones' career with the Dallas Cowboys. A giddy Jerry Jones, reached in his private suite after the George Strait concert Saturday night to open the new Cowboys Stadium, asked a reporter, "Would you beat me up too bad if I brought back Adam?" The Cowboys' owner said he is considering the move even though it's a long shot. The Cowboys might be hesitant to bring back Pacman Jones because it could stunt the progress of second-year cornerbacks Orlando Scandrick and Mike Jenkins.

Busch makes like Pete Townshend
Kyle Busch punished the competition and a brand-new Gibson Les Paul guitar trophy Saturday night at Nashville Superspeedway. Busch capped his victory celebration after the NASCAR Nationwide Series race by grabbing the custom-painted guitar by the neck and slamming it three times into the Victory Lane concrete before tossing it aside. The rock star antics originated last year when Busch told his team he would smash one of racing's most coveted prizes if he ever won at Nashville. To its credit, the guitar chipped but never shattered. One onlooker who applauded the theatrics was Sam Bass, the artist who paints Nashville's trophy guitars.

NHLPA: Pull plug on Coyotes
Should professional hockey continue to be played in the desert? According to the NHLPA, not anymore. In an interview with the Hamilton Spectator on Thursday, NHLPA executive-director Paul Kelly discussed what he felt should happen in the debate surrounding the future of the Phoenix Coyotes. "From a players' perspective, it's time to pull the plug," Kelly told The Spectator. While Kelly has stated that he does not necessarily completely support a team in Hamilton, he had no problem Thursday in voicing his belief that NHL owners should question whether the Coyotes should remain in Phoenix.
