The fact that Peyton Manning and Todd Helton were University of Tennessee quarterbacks at the same time is old, well-known news. That’s why you shouldn’t be surprised to see them pose for this picture at Coors Field this afternoon.
But what the hell is R.A. Dickey doing there? He’s not even looking at the camera and seems like the dude that no one wanted in the picture.
Well, it turns out that Dickey was at UT at the same time as Peyton, though he didn’t play football there. Either way, it’s a funny picture, especially if you take it at face value and think Dickey doesn’t belong there.
Like many players, Steve Francis came to the New York Knicks and his basketball career instantly went downhill, ultimately leading to his retirement in 2008 at age 31. However, the early end to his basketball career didn’t damper Francis’ spirits, and the former all-star point guard went into music.
Without further ado, here’s Francis’ “Finer Things.” Thank me (or, more likely, look up my address so you can shoot me) later.
I think it’s safe to say it would behoove Francis to find another use for his time and money.
There’s no available video yet, but Lance Berkman pranked fellow St. Louis Cardinal Adam Wainright on April Fool’s Day. The 13-year vet had the PA announcer give away a car to a fan, who happened to be in cahoots with Berkman. The car, of course, was Wainright’s Chevy Silverado.
Florida’s point guard ordered a $3 taco at a street vendor and fled without paying. After being chased by cops, Walker was arrested and charged with retail petit theft and resisting an officer without violence.
According to ESPN, Walker said he was “just playing around.”
Could be a fun game. Maybe Walker wanted a little taste of real-life GTA.
