Today’s Sports News – NFL news: Chad Ochocinco, Terrell Owens have falling out

Chad Ochocinco, Terrell Owens have falling out

So much for the T.Ocho Show. We should’ve known that Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens could only coexist for so long before they had a falling out. They’ve feuded all week over Twitter regarding quarterback Carson Palmer’s decision to walk out on the Bengals.

Ochocinco lashed out at T.O., claiming it’s his fault that Palmer wants to retire and that he’s being blamed for Owens’ actions. He threatened to “whoop your [expletive]” because of it. Owens responded by saying “I should whoop your [expletive] 4 asking me 2 come 2 Cincy!”

Looks like Batman and Robin need a timeout.

NBA news: Brandon Roy says he’ll return next week; Blazers pursuing Devin Harris?

It looks like the Portland Trail Blazers could get some major reinforcements soon. First, there’s Brandon Roy. He’s been practicing with the Blazers and his bad knees reportedly feel good. He says he’ll play next Wednesday against the Lakes.

Secondly, is Portland after Devin Harris? The New Jersey Nets reportedly want to move him whether he’s part of a Carmelo Anthony deal or not, as they “have been unhappy with Devin Harris’ level of play and commitment to the team lately.” If a trade happens, New Jersey would likely receive Andre Miller and Rudy Fernandez while also giving Troy Murphy’s contract to Portland.

MLB news: Miguel Cabrera charged with drunk driving, resisting arrest; Albert Pujols laughs off contract numbers; Jays, Bautista near mega deal

So much for Miguel Cabrera claiming he’s “clean.” Turns out he hasn’t stopped drinking after all. Late Wednesday night, he was arrested for drunk driving and also charged with resisting arrest.

A deputy in Port St. Lucie, Florida spotted Cabrera’s car pulled over on the side of the road and found Cabrera drunk. He reportedly swigged a bottle of scotch in front of the deputy claimed “I am going to [expletive] kill him,” though he was alone in the car.

Albert Pujols, his agent and the St. Louis Cardinals reportedly “had a laugh” at the reported contract numbers released by the media yesterday. “You guys are way off on what the numbers are you guys are throwing out there,” Pujols said. Even though their negotiation deadline passed, Pujols also insisted that he wants to be a Cardinal for life. He added: “If you want to call me greedy, you don’t know who I am.”

It looks like the Toronto Blue Jays are set to lock up slugger Jose Bautista with a five-year, $65-million extension. If Bautista can replicate his absurd, out-of-nowhere 54 homers and 124 RBI from 2010, the deal will be a bargain. If he returns to his borderline bench-player production of years past, the deal will look very bad. Not Vernon Wells bad, but bad.

NHL news: Upper-body injury for Brad Richards; lower-body injury for Jean-Sebastien Giguere

Brad Richards, on his way to another outstanding season with 63 points in 56 games for the Dallas Stars, is out indefinitely with what is being called an upper-body injury for now. He was hurt in a collision late in Sunday’s loss to Columbus. It’s possible he suffered a concussion. He’ll miss at least Dallas’ next few games.

The injury really complicates things for Dallas. Not only are the Stars in a dog fight for a Western Conference playoff berth, they had to ponder trading the soon-to-be-unrestricted free agent Richards before the deadline.

Another guy rumored to be on the trading block, Jean-Sebastien Giguere, appeared to reinjure his groin during the Toronto Maple Leafs’ win over Buffalo last week and is also out indefinitely.
