King Raven flies high

Ray Lewis, the heart and soul of the Baltimore Ravens for 17 years, got a fitting send off.

Ray did his dance as the team won big, thanks in part to his many  tackles, but mostly his enthusiasm. I am glad he gets to play another day. He's old-school linebacker,  one of the best I have seen play.


Rich Rice Owl?

Sounds like from accounts, that former Rice Owl Lance Berkman will get a big sack of money from the Texas Rangers.

Berkman, a 36-old with a bad knee, has been offered a one-year $10 million deal from the Rangers.

Smart move and smart money for him. I knew he went to Rice for a reason, he had the Rangers over a barrel.

He can prove some RBIs and a play first base or DH. But what if his wheels don't hold out?

He will be a Rice Owl hovering near the ground. But with a nice bank account.


A Duck with good luck.

Oregon coach Chip Kelly decided that the NFL might not be for him.

He reportedly turned down offers from the Eagles and Browns to stay in scenic Eugene, Oregon.

Having a 46-7 record helps. Another thing that helped the deal was fat cat, rich alum Phil Knight.

According to some reports, Knights reached into his vault of tenny shoe money to sweeten Kelly's deal. He is already making $3.2 mil to coach the Ducks.

Other folks say Kelly will stay put and make another run at the NFL when New England's coach Bill Belichick retires.

Kelly, a native of New Hampshire, would love to be the big boss in Foxborough.
