Bill Simmons, Randy Moss, Twitter

If you are on twitter (which I am) and if you follow ESPN’s Bill Simmons (which I do) you may have seen an interesting tweet last week. It simply said “moss Vikings.” Several minutes later Simmons tweeted that his previous tweet was supposed to be a direct message to someone. Nevertheless the inadvertent tweet sent rumors swirling of a Moss trade to the Vikings. Eventually this rumor was confirmed and the next morning the deal had been done.

While much of this has been documented, The Sports Guy’s column this week explains the behind the scenes of how it all went down. Like a typical Simmons piece it’s pretty wordy, but good.  It provides a very nice insight to the inner workings of ESPN and insider information.  Follow the link to check out the column.

Extreme Measures

As a fan there isn’t a whole lot you can do to actually help your team win.  Apart from cheering loudly to give some semblance of home field advantage, you can feel helpless watching your team lose.  This is the case with the New Mexico State University football team.  Currently winless this season, students  have decided to take a proactive approach to help their team, sort of.

Fliers were spread around the campus urging female co-eds to refrain from sexual relations with any member of the football team until they record a win.  Sports by Brooks has the story including images of the fliers which campus authorities are trying to dispose of.

From a fan’s point of view I love the enthusiasm but it seems like a pipe dream.  In an environment filled with girls with low self-esteem and alcohol, I doubt any football player looking to get some is going to have too much trouble.
