Chicago Sun-Times
A hearty stew of offbeat sports and pop culture.

Sun-Up: Ed Reed, Ravens advance; Marshawn Lynch was a beast; Team Beckham is growing; Reggie Wayne says he was 'irrelevant'; Video games in the bathroom?

| No Comments | No TrackBacks
Baltimore Ravens safety Ed Reed was awarded with the game ball after a 30-7 road victory over the Kansas City Chiefs yesterday.

He was understandably emotional.

Reed's brother, Brian, has been missing since jumping in the Mississippi River after being confronted by police about reports of a stolen car. Authorities have called off the search. Reed's mother said that investigators found her son's shoes and jacket.

After the game, the Raven chartered a plane to be with family in Louisiana.

"I think what Ed's going through, what the Reed family is going through, is a big part of this victory," coach John Harbaugh said. "That's what will be remembered by our players. We're a family, and the Reed family is part of the Raven family.

Beast mode

In case you missed it, here is Marshawn Lynch's game-clinching 67-yard touchdown run on Saturday. While the debate rages on as to its place among the all-time great rushes, Chicagoans agree that hosting an 8-9 Seahawks team in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs isn't exactly the worst draw.

Team Beckham
David Beckham and his wife, Victoria, are expecting their fourth child, the soccer star confirmed on his Facebook account over the weekend.

The couple wed in 1999 and have three sons: Brooklyn, 11, Romeo, 8, and Cruz, 5.

Wayne's whirl
Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne was less than pleased with his role in Saturday's 17-16 loss to the New York Jets.

"It's bull. It's bull, man," the five-time Pro Bowler said after he caught one pass in as many targets. "I give everything I've got no matter what. Every day, I give it everything. And . . . one ball, that's all."

Wayne was second in the NFL with 111 receptions in the regular season. He was matched up against one of the better cover-cornerbacks in the league, Darrelle Revis.

"I shouldn't have even suited up," he contunued. "I should have watched the game like everybody else. I was irrelevant."

And finally ...
Sick of the monotony of using the bathroom in the same boring way? Well, video games are there to help you out.
