Yet another setback for Former Dolphins Quarterback Chad Pennington.
The one-time NFL comeback player of the year tore his ACL during a pick-up basketball game.
Pennington’s career has been plagued by multiple surgeries, most notably his shoulder, which he recently tore last season with the Dolphins.
His contract with the team is expired.
If this marks the end of Pennington’s career, many analysts believe he’ll be a hot commodity as an NFL coach.
MJ’s brief dalliance in the Chicago White Sox farm system is generally regarded as a failure. Compared to his stellar basketball career, it was. But how many 31-year-olds do you know that could drop into Double-A baseball after not having swung a bat since high school and still hold their own in the professional ranks Jordan’s failing wasn’t that he was bad at baseball; it’s that he didn’t give himself enough time to find out how good he could be.
Rarely has a nickname been so fitting as “Bullet Bob.” Hayes earned the title of world’s fastest man during the 1960s by virtue of his Olympic sprint medals and world record times in the 60-yard, 100-yard and 100-meter races. One year after his triumphs in Tokyo, Hayes was wearing a star on his helmet, lining up as wide receiver for the Dallas Cowboys. He would posthumously be named to the Hall of Fame in 2009.
The two-time NBA MVP started his athletic career as a swimmer, setting Virgin Islands records in the 50- and 100-meter freestyle races. As a boy, Duncan hoped to follow in his older sister’s footsteps and represent the commonwealth in the Olympics. When Hurricane Hugo destroyed the pool he trained at, Duncan took to basketball. A recruiting trip from Wake Forest’s Dave Odom put the lanky teenager on the map. By the time he retires, he’ll go down as one of the greatest power forwards in the history of the league.
Before the steroid talk tarnished her legacy, Jones was a multi-sport star at North Carolina. She started on the Tar Heels’ 1994 national championship basketball team before quitting to focus on track. The five Olympic medals she won in Sydney were eventually stripped, though she did return to basketball in 2010, playing 33 games with the WNBA’s Tulsa Shock.
As a high school junior, Iverson was named the top basketball and football player in Virginia. He lead Bethel High to state titles in both sports, accounting for 34 touchdowns on the field and 31.6 points per game on the court. You get the feeling that Iverson could have excelled in any sport he tried.
Before he became more famous for baseball (and even more famous for his role in the civil rights movement), Jackie Robinson was a multi-talented athlete at UCLA. He was the first athlete in school history to win letters in four sports: Baseball, basketball, football and track. Ironically, baseball was probably his worst at the time. He batted .097 in his one year with the Bruins.
Neon Deion is still the only man to ever play in both the World Series and Super Bowl. With his characteristic panache, he once played in an NLCS game on Saturday night, an Atlanta Falcons game on Sunday afternoon and then jetted back to Pittsburgh for another NLCS game on the same day. (He didn’t see any action in the last game.)
His exploits on the football field are well-known, as Brown is widely considered one of the greatest players in the history of the NFL. But he was equally as dominant in another sport: At Syracuse, Brown was regarded as the top lacrosse player in the NCAA. He’s in each game’s Hall of Fame.
Bo knew sports. He was the first two-way star to be named an All-Star in two major sports, making the MLB All-Star team in 1989 and the NFL’s Pro Bowl in 1990. Jackson was the No. 1 pick out of Auburn after winning the 1985 Heisman Trophy but famously spurned the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in favor of a baseball career with the Kansas City Royals. He later signed with the NFL’s Oakland Raiders. A 1990 hip injury derailed both careers, but those who saw him in his prime say he was one of the most explosive talents in generations.
“Sir, you are the greatest athlete in the world,” King Gustav V of Sweden said to Jim Thorpe at the 1912 Olympics in Stockholm. Thorpe had just dazzled the crowd with golds in both the pentathlon and decathlon, setting a world record in the latter that would stand for another two decades. Thorpe also excelled in baseball and basketball, but stood out on the football field, where he was named a two-time All-American at Carlisle and made a lasting impression on future president Dwight Eisenhower, who faced Thorpe while captaining Army’s team. “He never practiced in his life, and he could do anything better than any other football player I ever saw,” Eisenhower would recount years later.
This is how I would have acted if the Yankees lost to the Twins first round.
I was suppose to be at this game with Heat and the Family. Looks Crazy.. Check out the footage.
Jets Won 24-14 (for the record) Heat Scalese at the NFL Playoff game in Cincinnati reppin’ for his NY JETS! Filmed this video pre-kickoff of the Jets vs. Bengals game in the playoffs! Some bengals fans had something to say, at least before the game. Drove 15 hours to watch the JETS big victory!
According to GrezyNclean…
5) Eli Manning
Why is he here? – So just how many football fans smiled when Eli went down a week ago only to sit back in disgust as the possible death assault only came out to be a minor injury? Like all little brothers with award winning and record breaking older brothers, no matter how good you get, you’ll always be overshadowed. Let’s face it, this guy was above average at best for his first 4 years in the league, but the NY Giants stuck with him for one reason only….his last name! America hate’s people who live off their name and although he’s gotten better in recent years, he’s name helped him get there….
4) Ben Roethlisberger
Why is he here? – Apparently, being accused of raping one girl wasn’t enough for this 2 time Super Bowl winner! People already hated his playing style, and attributed much of his early success to having a great defense, but including off the field antics is just too much. “Big Ben” the rapist seems to scare more then just poor defenses….now he’s going after your daughters…..
3) Tony Romo
Why is he here? – Excuses are like pretty women, yeah they look great, but at the end of the day they don’t win you Super Bowls! As the picture shows, Tony “Choker” gained his hated fame after blowing playoff after playoff game. Last season, Romo showed that his choking days might have come to an end….only to get blown out the next game…..Sorry Romo, but when you have one of the best teams every year and still have Tracy Mcgrady like results, you’ll end up as the third most hated QB in the NFL
2) Philip Rivers
Why is he here? – The only guy you might have enjoyed getting killed on the football field lands at #2. This egotistical “Me First” QB actually said that he was happy LT left the Chargers……after telling LT that he was sad to see him go! There’s only one thing worse then Chokers, and that’s Backstabbing Crybabies….that also choke in big games.
1) Brett Favre
Why is he here? – Because he’s an a**hole. Apparently, this guy likes to play games like a kid! In fact, I believe when he looks at himself in the mirror he sees the above picture…him as a 10 year old! What’s amazing is, like Hulk Hogan, he betrayed his fans when they loved him the most. Few people can retire and come back on another team to fan approval (Jordan), and apparently Favre ain’t one of them. After delaying Aaron Rodgers career for 3 years, and throwing the Jets franchise through a loop, Favre is looking to spread his disease to every eastern city he can. Watch out, he may be headed to a town near you….
