The things you see while touring camps...

After checking into my hotel in Cleveland for Browns camp, I decided to take my fat ass to a local gym. I worked with an excellent trainer for an hour and then headed to my car in the parking lot.

Several cars away from mine were two people in small van having sex. In a parking lot...broad daylight...doors and windows open.

True story. Witnessed some funky, butt ugly parking lot sex.

Thought about calling the cops but that would be hatin'.

Insert Rick Pitino joke here.

Horrible behavior

The Associated Press is reporting that the woman who accused Ben Roethlisberger of rape recently filed a police report claiming she's received dozens of harassing phone calls.

This is definitely believable and if accurate whoever's doing it should spend some time in prison.

It's gutless, cowardly, disgusting, disgraceful and did I mention gutless?

How about we let the civil lawsuit play itself out, cowardly and anonymous callers? Attempting to intimidate the woman into dropping the suit is un-American, at best, and might be against the law.

One message allegedly said that "something's going to happen" if she didn't walk away from the case.

It's frightening the dark and ugly corners in some people's minds.

Seven Diet Cokes and counting.

Thanks for all the questions but keep them coming. I'm here until 11 a.m.

Brett Favre: great player, kinda' petty

Brett Favre will one day soon enter the Hall of Fame and he should. None of Favre's recent petulant actions should dampen that sentiment.

One of the top five quarterbacks in league history. That's Favre.

Favre, however, will also be remembered for his petty behavior at the end.

He went to the New York Jets out of spite so he could stick his thumb in the eye of Green Bay management.

Then he held up the Minnesota Vikings for weeks if not months, wavering back and forth, enjoying the ego rush of having Vikings players beg him to return.

He treated Packers fans, perhaps the most loyal in all of sports, like hot garbage.

In the waning moments of his career, Favre acted like His Brettness.

He's a Hall of Famer, no question. One of the best.

In the end he also acted like a royal jerk.

Both things are true.

See you in Canton, Your Brettness. Good luck.

And good riddance.

Will Mike Vick be back? It seems likely, but...

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell is leaning towards reinstating Michael Vick, two league sources told, though no final decision has been made and Vick's future in professional football is far from certain.

Two league sources stressed that Goodell hasn't officially decided on whether to allow Vick back into football, contradicting an ESPN report that Goodell has decided to conditionally reinstate Vick and suspend him four games.

But those sources also said that signs seem to be pointing to Vick returning. Again, the situation remains extremely fluid, the sources said, and they stressed that Goodell is still weighing several factors that could change his mind.

The action Goodell is considering, the sources said, is similar to what's Pete Prisco wrote earlier this week. Goodell might allow Vick to sign with a club as soon as next week but not actually reinstate him until a much later date and not announce that date until a later point in time.

Thus even if teams wanted to sign Vick -- and there's no indication that's the case -- few would risk adding him to their training camp roster this season without knowing when he'd be reinstated.

If the scenario that the sources are outlining is accurate it could be months before Vick ever sees a down in the NFL (and again that's if a team even wants to sign him).

"If I was Michael Vick," a source said, "I'd be thinking more about 2010."

One person helping Vick greatly is Tony Dungy, the former Indianapolis Colts coach, one of the all-time classy coaches in football history. Dungy has publicly recommended that Vick be allowed to return and Goodell has strongly considered Dungy's words, sources said.

The sources also confirmed published reports that Vick and Goodell met in New Jersey on Wednesday.

I'll be gone for a week. Don't miss me too much.

I know you will.

Meanwhile, I'll say hello to LaToya Jackson for all of you.

Pit bulls and kids don't mix

Hopefully James Harrison's son isn't seriously injured and it sounds like he'll be fine after Harrison's pit bull attacked the 2-year-old. That's the good news.

The bad news: Harrison never apparently learned that pit bulls and kids don't mix.

I'm sure I'll hear from pit bull owners who will say the dogs are loyal and gentle. Sure they are. If pit bulls are gentle, I'm Denzel Washington.

Have you ever heard of a deadly Lhasa Apso attack?

That's what I thought.

Harrison might as well have left a loaded gun around his son. Something like this was bound to happen. Because it's a freaking pit bull. That's what they do. Attack things.

Hopefully Harrison can give the dog to a loving couple...a couple without kids.
