BREAKING: The state po-po seized 50 pairs of Florsheim wingtips from Mickey Loomis's house.

I think Roger Goodell is going to discover just how unpeaceful Louisiana is when he visits for Super Bowl XLVII.

Great workout body feels like a MACHINE time for a nap Ask yourself this ? In DA mirror & b honest Where do u c URSELF 5YRS From Now?

LMAO "as recently as eight years ago" RT : another attempt by ESPN to call for Loomis' head:

I agree with Peter's instincts here: ": My take on the Loomis affair: "

Thot: Winners r always part of the answer not part of the problem. Winners see an answer for every problem not a problem with every answer.

Thot 4 2day: Winners say It may be difficult but its possible; Not It may be possible but its too difficult. Be a Winner

Sigh. Of course it did. RT Tuesday's edition of PFT Live featured a conversation with Jeff Duncan of the Times-Picayune

Had a great work out today.... feels great

Like one long instant replay: an announcement on any discipline for the Saints players in the bounty scandal today is "unlikely."

I love that the FBI is investigating ESPN's "single source", but ESPN's story cites "sources".

Despite reports he plans to retire, Mark Brunell has no plans to retire at this time and still is hoping to sign with a team before camp.

I'm at peace with this.... RT : Survey: Louisiana ranked as "least peaceful" state for 11th straight year.

Working with guys like and u have two options: Keep up or get left behind

ESPN reporting continuing to insist on giving Reggie Bush the ball is clear evidence of 2007-2010 point-shaving scheme. Stay tuned.

sigh, OH HOW I LONG FOR THE DAYS WHEN THE MEDIA MOSTLY IGNORED THE SAINTS:
