in general, NFL, Tampa Bay Lightning, Tampa Bay Rays

Sunday, 6 a.m.

Hello, I'm Dan Jennings. And did everyone know that teams played a left-fielder, too?

-- Prince of a guy, that Prince Shembo, who beat a 7-pound Yorkie to death. Self-protection.  I don't know what punishment fits, but how about 20 years...in Michael Vick's old dog cage?

-- You can blame the source. But TMZ sports talked to 10 NBA players, and all of them thought itw as time for the league to legalize marijuana. Also, if you have any old Grateful Dead albums, they would sound good right about now.

-- The Rangers, now the Blackhawks? Can we assume the Lightning have Sinatra covered?

-- No offense, but if you were going to put in a bid for Aaron Hernandez' old Grand Marquis he has for sale, wouldn't you want to check the engine...and the trunk?

-- What are the odds that Chris Gatling does a Visa commercial?

-- I guess we can forget about that Marty St. Louis statue. But starting next year, he may be open to a job of standing very still outside Amalie Arena. Just in case.

-- How does that swap-my-legacy trade look now?

-- Despite the controversy, I think Sepp Blatter has a fine future. As I understand it, they're looking for a new Blofield for the next James Bond movie.

-- Ernie Els says that Rory McElroy will end up winning as many majors as Tiger Woods. Yeah? But how will he do at Perkins?

– I thought it was amusing that Hawks' radio announcer Steve Holman referred to Cleveland guard Matt Dellevedova as “Tonya Harding'' because he plays so dirty. Only his eye makeup is better.

-- There is an advantage for St. Thomas University in having 300-pound pitcher Ben Ancheff. For one thing, the school can use his shirt for the tarp.

-- Is it just me, or are St. Louis and Vinny Lecavalier in a sprint toward the exit?

-- Is it fair that Warren Sapp is paying one of his hookers $1,171 and the other  only $150? Suzy Favor Hamilton, the old Olympian, wouldn't watch Pretty Woman with you for that.

-- For all of the words condeming ex-Bears defensive lineman Ray McDonald, whack job, the finest two were by guard Kyle Long. “Good riddance.''

-- So what is former Packers' coach Mike Sherman doing coaching a high school team? Overachieving, that's what.

-- Just wondering: You think the NHL would like to do a recount? Doesn't Jon Cooper deserve to be among the top three coaches after all?

-- George McCaskey shouldn't blame himself. Hey, the Ray McDonald signing worked out just fine for, oh, about 17 seconds.

-- Things not for sale in ex-Minnesota Vikings' coach Bud Grant's yard sale: A Super Bowl ring.

– Asked about Deflategate, Bill Belichick chose to  suck the air out the room. Isn't there a penalty for that?

-- Leading cause of canine deaths in Atlanta? The Falcons.

-- Dan Jennings? Your Strat-o-matic game has arrived.

-- The funniest story of the week? Ex-pro wrestlers Roddy Piper and Wayne Ferris, the Honkytonk Man, are having words. It's like Grumpy Old Men, all over again.

-- Maybe it's just me, but when I think of the Tim Tebow-Matt Barkley battle for third among the Eagles quarterbacks, I just don't think of Joe Montana and Steve Young.

-- So the Bucs were sweating with the oldies this week. They practiced to music form the 80s. I wonder how many of thought "Hey. my dad liked that song.''

-- You can trust the source. But TMZ sports talked to 10 NBA players, and all of them thought itw as time for the league to legalized marajauna. Also, if you have any old Grateful Dead albums, they would sound good right about now.
