DOLPHINS WANT JAMARCUS?Inside the NFL reports that JaMarcus Russell has been contacted by the Dolphins on the wake of Miami's multiple quarterback of injuries from Sunday's win over the Titans. With the Dolphins having a short week  before their Thursday night game against the Bears, the Dolphins need enough healthy bodies to fill out the depth chart. The Fins lost new starter Chad Pennington after only two plays with his latest shoulder injury. Chad Henne was injured late in the third quarter. The only other quarterback is Tyler Thigpen. Russell, the  first over-all pick in the 2007 draft, had a tryout with the Redskins several weeks ago. He earned $38 million with the Raiders before they cut him for lack of production...


 

TERRY BRADSHAW admits he's not good at picking winners as  an analyst on "Fox NFL Monday." "I suck a lot," said the former Steelers quarterback from Shreveport. "Everybody is laughing at me, and that hurts. But you know what really burns my butt? Jimmy Johnson (co-host) was winning them all the first  few weeks." Bradshaw, 62, sees himself in the gig until he's in his late 70s, although his  contract expires in four years."I'll be 66. That's still young enough," said Bradshaw. "I'm in good shape and I'm cute as a button."...Some drink out of the fountain of knowledge. I just gargle...Why is an actor on TV, but in a movie?...

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
