Hump Day.....News & Views

It is a ..... postcard perfect spring afternoon in this small southern college town.   This more like it.   70 degrees with lots of sun and no humidity.

Some "stuff" we're following:

There is no life!   Warren Sapp was embarrassed  and humiliated .....during Super Bowl week....Headlines......all over.   Now this:

Warren Sapp Off the Hook in Battery Case

Warren Sapp Off the Hook in Battery CaseFormer NFL superstar Warren Sapp will not face criminal charges for allegedly beating a woman during Super Bowl weekend in Miami this year.

The Florida State Attorney's Office just announced that "the State cannot file charges ... due to the totality of the evidence and inconsistencies with the victim testimony and the physical evidence gathered during the investigation."

The woman told authorities that Sapp got violent with her in his hotel room on February 6, 2010 because he wanted her to leave. But according to officials, there were many inconsistencies in the alleged victim's story.

Authorities say the woman told investigators that Sapp beat her so badly that she could "barely walk " and needed help from an "anonymous man" to leave the building -- but video surveillance shows she never received any aid from anyone ... and was walking without a limp.

Ultimately, officials decided they could not prove this case beyond a reasonable doubt and "ethically meet our burden."

Doc Gooden Busted for DWI -- with Kid Passenger

Former NY Mets and NY Yankees star pitcher Dwight "Doc" Gooden was arrested in New Jersey yesterday after cops say he got into a car crash while under the influence of drugs -- while there was a kid in his car.

According to officials, 45-year-old Gooden was arrested and charged with multiple crimes including:

-- Driving While Under the Influence of Drugs
-- Being under the Influence of a Controlled Dangerous Substance
-- Endangering the Welfare of a Child
-- DWI with a Child Passenger
-- Leaving the Scene of a Motor Vehicle Accident
-- Reckless Driving
-- Failure to Keep Right
-- Failure to Notify Change of Address regarding driver's license

As first reported on, cops say they first investigated the situation after receiving a 911 call around 8:50 AM yesterday morning.

Gooden was released on his own recognizance.

Dwight has a storied history of substance abuse -- dating back to his playing days in the late '80s.
Report: Tim Tebow’s pre-Wonderlic prayer request falls flat

Maybe this is what Tim Tebow had in mind at the Wonderlic testing
Maybe this is what Tim Tebow had in mind at the Wonderlic testing

When Tebow attempted the prayer before the 12-minute test, a few players laughed and another provided some, well, colorful language. Wonder if Tebow will remember the guy who told him to “shut the (expletive) up.”

The Sentinel left a message with members of Tebow’s camp, including father Bob Tebow, for a response to the story.

It appears Tebow is not shying away from his values, even in the face of NFL skeptics. Tebow has always been outspoken about his faith, even in his high school days.

But, as Pro Football Talk points out, Tebow faces a whole new set of challenges in the NFL.
