Sports News For 1/29/10

NFL NEWS

It's official Kurt Warner QB for the Arizona Cardinals has just retired after 12 great years in the NFL. Warner was always one of the top professional NFL players on and off the field and spent a lot of his time during the off-season helping out with different charities. During his career Warner won two MVP awards, went to the Pro bowl 5 times and won the Super Bowl with the St. Louis Rams early in his career. Even though he had 2 years and $23 million left on his contract, he felt this was the perfect time for him to walk away from the game.

The Cincinnati Bengals rookie LB Rey Maualuga has been arrested for DUI after he hit a parking meter and 2 park cars early this morning. But after learning about this the only thing that has me puzzled since athletes get DUI all the time is why is he still driving a 2003 Pontiac.

This Sunday night is the 2009-10 NFL Pro Bowl that will be held in Miami instead of the usually place Hawaii. Another difference is that this year's game is the week before the Super Bowl instead of after, which makes all the players in the Super Bowl that made it to the Pro Bowl not eligible. But because the rule states that even if you cant play in the Pro Bowl if you made the team you must make an appearance which has angered many Indianapolis Colts and New Orleans Saints players that have to miss their teams flight in order to fulfill their duties under league rules.

COLLEGE FOOTBALL NEWS

The weekend the top seniors in college football will suit up for the North and South and battle it out in this year Senior Bowl. While there is a lot of marquee players in the game the most hyped up player competing is Florida Gators QB Tim Tebow. Tebow won many accolades during his tenure at Florida but many experts predict that he will not make a good QB in the NFL. Many feel he has a better chance as a tight end due to his lack of arm strength that is needed to succeed in the NFL. However Tebow plans on proving people wrong this weekend in front of every NFL scout that thinks he should look at playing another position. Just to make things worst Tebow was diagnosed with streap throat this week and was running a 103-degree temperature on Wednesday.
