NFL: Rice not interested in becoming NFL Commissioner; at least for now
KFFL Sports News Wire ^ | March 20, 2006 | Associated Press Staff

Posted on 03/20/2006 4:46:33 PM PST by no dems

The Associated Press reports secretary of state Condoleezza Rice is not applying for the newly opened post of NFL commissioner - not now, anyhow, her spokesman said carefully Monday, March 20. Rice is enjoying being secretary of state "at the moment," spokesman Sean McCormack said. The wiggle-room in his response after NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue announced he would retire resonated off frequent only half-joking statements by Rice that as a lifelong football fan she aspires to run the league one day. New England Patriots owner Bob Kraft seems to be in Rice's corner for the football post.

Hey, maybe Condi IS interested in being POTUS after all. She said before that the only other job she was interested in, other than Secretary of State, was NFL Commissioner. Her only downfall is that she's an Oakland Raiders fan.

If that was false info, I'm heartbroken :-(

Glad to have her on the NFL's side.

Could you IMAGINE Jerry Jones or one of the Bidwells crossing her? THAT would be something worthy of an HBO special or something heheh

Jerry Rice is in full sell-out mode. He won't be commissioner until he empties the value of fame to the dregs with appearances on stupid shows such as "Dancing with the Stars" and "Pros vs. Joes" (which I must confess to being entertained by).

Cleveland Browns - the intelligent person's football team:

......"NASA astronaut Donald A. Thomas, Ph.D., a native of Cleveland, Ohio, poses with a Cleveland Browns football helmet and Browns patches in his (launch and entry) space suit. Thomas carried a Cleveland Browns flag onboard the space shuttle Columbia during the STS-83 Microgravity Science Lab-1 (MSL-1) mission launched on April 4, 1997. The items are now on display at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio."

they shouldn't have fired him....

I don't think he had enough to work with to warrant a firing.

I am sure he will make up for it in Miami though.

Maybe a good choice for her. I heard a call-in to Cspan today refer to her at St. Condi of the Mushroom Cloud.

Just to make you jealous, I stood beside Condi for almost three hours in Austin on Election Night 2000 waiting for Dubya to come out and address the crowd after he'd been declared the victor. We were bumping arms and hips right there in the crowd, talking for hours as we tried to figure out what was going on.

She finally gave up and left around 2 am. I gave up about 30 minutes later.

Our proximity was a complete act of chance. She didn't exactly single me out to stand by. ;-)

Wait, didn't he quit, or is my memory just fuzzy? Anyone gets bonus points in my book for quitting the Bills.

... I think I just convinced myself that Mularkey is a good man.

I'm pretty certain he got fired....

Let me check though. If he did quit, then I'd forgotten it.....


yep you were right. He resigned after Donohue was canned and they hired Marv Levy. My guess is that he saw the writing on the wall.

You must be a cow-boys fan.

Cut Jerry some slack. I would hardly call being on some TV shows being a sell-out.

Deon Sanders was a sell-out, Jerry Rice is capiatizing on his sucsessful career.

You wouldn't call Lynn Swann a sell out would you? There's really no difference.

And then Saban hires him, which is a gigantic middle finger to the Bills.

Suddenly I like him.
