Monday, December 20, 2010 Hot Topics - 12.20.10

It's a holiday week and I'm bailin' out early, so expect things to be a lil' light around here for a minute. On to today's headlines...

Happy Trails, Agent Zero - It's not every day your favorite athlete of all time (OF ALL TIME!!!) gets traded away, but it happened this weekend as my Washington Wizards finally parted ways with former all-star Gilbert Arenas. Oddly, the homie Ed The Sportsfan asked me to write a lil' something about Gilbert's standing in DC, just before the trade happened (although I didn't know about the trade when I wrote it). You can peep that here. As for the trade itself, well, lets just say the Wizards are rebuilding and leave it at that. Personally, I hate the trade and don't think we got fair value in return. But that's DC sports for you in a nutshell.

Don't Ask, Don't Tell - Well, at least that's finally over.

Mike Vick's Amazing Comeback - Jesus, was that a freakin' game or what? Well, the final 6 minutes of it at least. I'm sure this one'll be on Instant Classics by Tuesday if it ain't already. And BTW, Desean Jackson is a real douche. A talented douche, but a douche nonetheless.

And while we're at it, what's this nonsense about PETA not wanting Vick to buy a puppy for his daughter this Christmas? Seriously? Folks, when will this guy have paid his debt to society and be allowed to move on? As is, he's the NFL's MVP. He went to jail. He talks to chill'rens. He should probably be Time Magazine's Man Of The Year (eff' a Mark Zuckerberg) if we lived in a less PC society. Let the man buy his child a baby Rott collie and be done.

Question: What's on your mind today?
