Arizona quarterback Derek Anderson was lackluster in a 27-6 loss to the San Francisco 49ers last night. He was also quite animated during his post-game interview session with the media.

Anderson was repeatedly asked about a televised shot of him sharing a laugh with guard Deuce Lutui in the fourth quarter.

"I'm telling you right now what I do every single week! Every single week I put my heart and soul into this!" Anderson responded, his voice gaining volume. "I don't go out there and laugh. It's not funny. Nothing's funny to me. I don't want go out there and get embarrassed on Monday Night Football in front of everybody."

That, of course, has been sanitized for language.

The outburst was reminiscent of another Monday night meltdown in Arizona a few years ago by Dennis Green after a loss to the Bears.

Here that is, as if Bears fans need any reminder.

No taunting
The clever part-time Alabama employee that played songs germane to the Cam Newton investigation throughout the stadium on Saturday didn't get away with it.

The university fired the musicmaker, who played "Take the Money and Run" and "Son of a Preacher Man" while the Auburn Tigers warmed up.

A university spokesman said that the offending party didn't get permission for the music.

Tweet, tweet
Buffalo Bills wide receiver Steve Johnson has let God off the hook for making him drop that potential game-winning pass against the Steelers.

"No I Did Not Blame God People! Seriously??!? CMon! I Simply Cried Out And Asked Why," the wideout clarified on his favorite microblogging interface.

I AM HAPPY & THANKFUL 4 YESTERDAY! w/out Sunday i Wldnt have grew closer w/The Lord!," he added.

So there you have it.

Ice Capades



Hockey Night in Canada's Kevin Weekes is unfazed by an out-of-control zamboni hurdling in his direction.

What a pro.
