The pictures are out of guys and gals walking around looking like the NFL player who was arrested yesterday. As Hernandizing picks up and loses steam, it upsets us less than average folks when a guy has everything and is a complete idiot and tosses it away. I don't mean to judge before the facts come out but I have. Just days after receiving MILLIONS in bonus money the Pats cut their ties, lost money, communities lost a hero and oh by the way a guy lost his life. Which is of course the most important issue here. Hernandez has been charged with murder stemming from a homicide investigation into the death of Odin Lloyd on June 17. Hernandez was taken into custody on Wednesday morning, led away from his home in handcuffs by law enforcement authorities at about 5:45 a.m. and was arraigned Wednesday afternoon in Attleboro District Court. In addition to first-degree murder, Hernandez also faces five gun-related charges. Hernandez pleaded not guilty
and was ordered to be held without bail. The New England Patriots released the Pro Bowl tight end less than two hours after his arrest.
>>Pirates Double Up M's For Sixth Straight Win
Jordy Mercer singled in the go-ahead run in the ninth inning and the Pirates went on to beat the Mariners 4-2 at Safeco Field. Felix Hernandez struck out 11 over seven innings of two-run ball in a no-decision for Seattle. Charlie Furbush took the loss and the Mariners were swept in the three-game series. Raul Ibanez homered and Michael Saunders drove in a run for the M's.
>>Sounders To Screen Fans With Metal Detectors

>>Seahawks' Rice To Open Restaurant Franchises In Seattle Area
Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice is such a fan of Wingstop chicken wings that he is opening five new locations in the Seattle area. He announced his plans in news release yesterday. The first Wingstops under Rice's management will open in Kent and Tacoma. There is already one location in Bellevue.
Vancouver first baseman Justin Atkinson hit a game-tying home run in the top of the ninth inning to force extra innings, but an error by Vancouver third baseman Dickie Thon in the 10th gave Spokane a 3-2 win. Christopher Garia and Alberto Truinfel drew back-to-back walks in the bottom of the 10th, and with two outs RF Ryan Cordell hit a routine ground ball to Thon, who threw the ball in the dirt allowing Garia to score the game's winning run. Spokane's homestand continues tonight.
Who cares now. After a Wednesday of injuries, withdrawls and upsets at Wimbledon there is literally no one I care to watch now.
