ARod Demands To Be Included In The Mitchell Report

NEW YORK - New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodrigeuz today insisted that if his name is not included in the Mitchell Report, he will work with his agent, Scott Boras, to make the report is amended to include him.

"As I've said repeatedly: ARod isn't afraid of greatness," agent Scott Boras said.

Arthur Blank Clarifies Vick Comments

FLOWERY BRANCH, GA - Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank clarified his contraversial comments from last night's Monday Night Football telecast.

"My comments about Michael Vick eating fried chicken in prison and gaining weight were misrepresented," explained Blank. "Clearly all the watermelon he would also eat would flush out all the grease and keep his muscle tone finely tuned in the way that makes him genetically predisposed to be a great athlete."

Blank then went on to say he was "suprised a white guy like Bobby Petrino would quit" before panicked members of the Falcons media department escorted him away.

Dungy Angers Colts Fans By Not Calling Them "Best"

INDIANAPOLIS, IN - Super Bowl winning coach Tony Dungy disappointeed legions of Indianapolis fans with his frank assessment of their place in the American sports heirarchy.

"I'm glad we could win this for you - the Indianapolis fans - among the Top 20 fan bases in the country, maybe even high teens!" Dungy said to a somewhat tepid response.

Quarterback Peyton Manning defended his coach.

"Hey, every year you hear every single coach and player tell their fans, 'You guys are the best fans in the world' - well, they can't ALL be Number One," Manning explained. "Logically, only one city can have the best fans in the world."

When asked what city he felt had the best fans in the world, Manning replied, "Indianapolis, of course. I'm not a moron."

When asked to elaborate, Dungy softened his stance.

"Oh, they're probably better than the Top 20, even high teens," said Dungy. "I mean, I was just ballparking and since the market is so small, I figured Top 20 would have been a compliment. But to say the best - well, that's just silly. I mean, we couldn't even fill up the RCA Dome but the Patriots shut down Boston and their fans line the streets - outdoors in the cold for the entire celebration, I might add - whenever they win the Super Bowl."

An Advertisement With Peyton Manning

(Due to financial constraints, we will occassionally devote some space to Mr. Peyton Manning to share his latest offers with you. Now that he is a Super Bowl MVP and he has never met a commerical he doesn't like, this will be a frequent segment.)

"Hi, I'm Super Bowl MVP Peyton Manning, and when I'm attempting to murder my astronaught boyfriend's lover, I only use Pepper Johnson-brand pepper spray!"

A Pat On The Back

I don't mean to brag, but apparently someone in the NFL - or possibly Prince - is reading my stuff.

At Super Bowl XLI, the FAMU Marching Band was in the halftime show, something I called for a full year earlier.

Of course, my idea was to make them the centerpiece of the show, not some novelty sideshow to Prince. But hey, close enough.

Authorities Thwart Davis Plan To Nuke Oakland

WASHINGTON, DC - Federal authorities say they broke up a plan by Al Davis to launch a nuclear attack in the city of Oakland.

Sources say the Raiders owner saw the success the New Orleans Saints enjoyed after tragedy struck their city, and hoped to replicate that in Oakland.

"He's old and he doesn't have much time left," said a a government official. "Unfortunately, he doesn't have Drew Brees and Reggie Bush, either."

Oakland Mayor Jerry Brown said he was not alarmed.

"Are you kdding me?" asked Brown. "Three-quarters of our city's disaster preperation manual are devoted to Raiders-related catastrophes."

Sen. John Kerry Endorses, Then Condemns Saban Move

WASHINGTON, DC - Senator John Kerry (D-MA) backed off his initial support of Nick Saban abandoning the Miami Dolphins for the University of Alabama.

"I was for his move before I was against it," acknowledged Kerry.

Kerry went on to say that he doesn't think Saban was lying when he insisted just days earlier that he would not be the head coach at Alabama.

"You see, Nick Saban is a leader just like me, " Kerry explained. "Leaders make tough decisions. And sometimes we make lots of them. We're not changing our minds; we're simply just making multiple decisions because we're so good at it."
