A Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day to those of you fortunate enough to have the day off. Whether you’re sleeping in or slacking off, check out the best links of the weekend, all selected by Rocco the Funnyman.

  • Once again, we had a weekend full of duds in the NFL, save for the late game on Sunday. This week, the New York Jets held on for a 17-14 win over the San Diego Chargers, guaranteeing that the AFC will be represented by a rookie coach at the Super Bowl in three weeks. Chargers kicker Nate Kaeding missed three field goals, causing him to give the sad puppy face to the whole country.

  • Unfortunately, the saddest news out of the NFL was much worse than just losing a football game. Chicago Bears DE Gaines Adams passed away yesterday due to cardiac arrest. The autopsy revealed that Adams had an enlarged heart, which possibly caused the cardiac arrest. Adams was originally drafted by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, leading Buc ‘Em to create a tribute video to Adams. Check it out below.
  • This may be the first time I’ve recommended a post based on the comments alone, but some morons on Babcock’s Death Stare had the balls to suggest that the Red Wings should trade Nicklas Lidstrom. Kyle Kujawa, BDS’s main contributor and author of the post, calls the idea “moronic” so be sure to not direct your hate mail to him. Don’t be fooled: there’s more likelihood of the sun not rising tomorrow than the Wings trading The Perfect Human.

  • For those interested in Michigan basketball and recruiting, UM Hoops is the site to check out. I was interested in this post about Grand Ledge, MI senior Jon Horford. I went to high school just down the road from Grand Ledge and watched Jon’s older brother Al, who you may now know as a forward for the Atlanta Hawks. Apparently Jon has been tearing it up just like his older brother and is on the radar of both Michigan and Michigan State, among other schools.
Rob’s Highlight of the Day
I’ve been all over the New Orleans Saints bandwagon since the Monday Night reopening of the Superdome a few years ago, so today’s highlight is Reggie Bush’s jaw-dropping TD run against the Cardinals this weekend.

 

The luxurious hotels San Diego is known for have amenities fit for high profile people like celebrities and professional athletes.
