Phillies’ Ken Giles has stage fright

Ken Giles was honored after Monday nights game along Jonathan Papelbon, Cole Hamels, and Jake Diekman. They stumped the Braves with a combined no-hitter on September 1.

DeSean Jackson is making headlines again. According to NJ.com, Merrill Reese mailed a letter to DeSean Jackson once he was traded to the Redskins’.

Reese wrote, “Dear DeSean, thank you for some of the most memorable moments in my broadcast career. I wish you continued success and good health.”

Villain of the week: Adrian Peterson

The hot story going around last week that I noticed was about Adrian Peterson. Peterson mentioned about finishing his career in his home state of Texas. According to ESPN’s Outside The Lines, Peterson told Cowboys owner Jerry Jones in June that Peterson wants to end his career in Dallas.

I would love Peterson as an Eagle side by side with McCoy but not as a Cowboy. Adrian Peterson is my villain of the week.
