Randy-Moss-waived.jpgRandy Moss continues to star in a soon-to-be-ripped-from-the-headlines full-length feature film.

A day after praising the New England organization (which he doesn't play for anymore) and criticizing the Minnesota Vikings (which he did), the temperamental wide receiver was waived.

So if you're keeping score at home, that's two teams up, two teams down in eight weeks of play.

It goes without saying that picking up Moss is a risky proposition, but if you think that's stopping Bears fans from taking to the Internet in droves to recommend they do just that, think again ...
This should seem easy now
Edison Pena, one of the 33 Chilean miners who spent 69 days trapped underground, will run in this Sunday's New York City Marathon. He routinely jogged through the unblocked tunnels while awaiting rescue.

I'm sure a funnier picture exists, but none come to mind right now. This little kid's Ron Washington costume is dead-on.

He hates New York?
In less heartwarming Texas Rangers news, the team's CEO Chuck Greenberg lit into Yankees fans.

"I thought Yankee fans, frankly, were awful," Greenberg said in a radio interview. "They were either violent or apathetic, neither of which is good. So I thought Yankee fans were by far the worst of any I've seen in the postseason. I thought they were an embarrassment."

You'll remember star pitcher Cliff Lee's wife claimed she was spit at while attending a game in the Bronx.

Seriously, let me know. I could be talked into that.

Tonight's picks:
Indianapolis 34, Houston 20

Rangers 4, Giants 2
