    Well, the next time Kaepernick’s 49er’s take the field they will be in one of the biggest military cities in the nation – San Diego. The Chargers are rolling out something very special for their game against Kaepernick’s team. The game is being called the “Salute to the Military” and will feature a number of entertainment options which will honor the United States, the American Flag and our nation’s military. Among the festivities will be 240 service members holding a 150ft x 300ft “super flag” during the national anthem, retired Navy SEALs parachuting into the stadium during the pregame show,...

    Two dips with your chips.Katie Couric will interview the president live during the CBS pre-game show. I will only countenance this if the NFL on Fox dancing robot gets to interview Obama. The dancing robot's disapproval numbers, if one were to take them, are likely lower than the president's, but I like him. I like it when he does high knees. I like it when he does the Electric Slide. I think he's got a lotta personality. His name is Cleatus. Dance on, Cleatus. robot

    8/18/2006 - MACDILL AIR FORCE BASE, Fla. (AFPN) -- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers broke training camp Thursday and in an unprecedented move for the team, held its day-before-game walk-through at MacDill AFB, Fla. The Buccaneers, who play their second pre-season game against the Miami Dolphins Saturday, have a long-standing relationship and community partnership with the military here. "You guys have no idea what a great morale booster it is for you to come out and do this," said Col. Maggie Woodward, 6th Air Mobility Wing commander. "It means a lot that you think enough of us to do this." Friday's...

    Detroit -- Joe Montana, the only three-time Super Bowl Most Valuable Player, was one of only three Super Bowl MVPs who turned down the NFL's invitation to take part in pregame ceremonies for Super Bowl XL. Montana also declined the league's invitation for a news conference with all the MVPs after Commissioner Paul Tagliabue's Friday news conference. "We were disappointed we weren't able to work it out with him," said Greg Aiello, the NFL's vice president of public relations. The former MVPs were guaranteed $1,000 for incidental expenses while in Detroit. The NFL also provided each former Super Bowl MVP...

    FORT BRAGG, N.C. - President Bush on Tuesday appealed for the nation's patience for "difficult and dangerous" work ahead in Iraq, hoping a backdrop of U.S. troops and a reminder of Iraq's revived sovereignty would help him reclaim control of an issue that has eroded his popularity. In an evening address (sic) at an Army base that has 9,300 troops in Iraq, Bush was acknowledging the toll of the 27-month-old war. At the same time, he aimed to persuade skeptical Americans that his strategy for victory needed only time — not any changes — to be successful.

    Did you guys catch that? I like the song, but thought that the context was demeaning considering the "theme" of the pregame is a salute to veterans and serving members of the armed forces. That song has a meaning them and now. And with the purposeful ending over and over. What a jerk!
