Video: Bart Scott's Appearance On TNA Impact

Last week, we told you about Bart Scott‘s appearance on TNA Impact and working with idol Hulk Hogan.

We weren’t sure if Scott would mix things up with TNA’s finest, but the New York Jets linebacker did just that, presumably making head coach Rex Ryan cringe as a result.

Way to sell Kurt Angle‘s ankle lock, Bart.

Nothing Says March Madness Like Kings Of Leon

Starting on Friday, CBS and Turner Sports will roll out a multiplatform campaign featuring the rock band Kings of Leon in order to promote the NCAA Tournament.

Tournament footage will be weaved into the band’s video, “The Immortals,” and shown on 5,800 movie screens across the country until March 17.

But Seriously, There's No Cheering in the Press Box (or the Media Center)

One more for the “Behavior in the press box debate.”

Jay Busbee pens a long column discussing why he was offended that many of his colleagues applauded Trevor Bayne in his post-Daytona 500 victory press conference.

Look, it’s very simple. When you’re paid to do a job, or (in the case of some of NASCAR’s “citizen journalist” unpaid bloggers) when you’re invited into the media center, your loyalties are to that job first and foremost. Can you be a fan and still do the job? Of course. It’s helpful, in fact, to give you insight into the mind and heart of the fans, the people who expect you to bring them the news and accounts of the day. But there’s passion and there’s professionalism, and if you have your priorities as a journalist in order, never the twain shall mix.

NY Times Shows Nick Folk Is Terrible, Other Fun Jets Special Team Facts

Charts!

Joe Ward, Shan Carter, and Kevin Quealy do their graphic thing on NYTimes.com, showing Nick Folk‘s successes and struggles kicking field goals.

The Jets kicker started the seasons strong, but struggled as the year wore on, missing nearly half his field goals during a four-games stretch. He regained his form, making nine in a row, but as the chart demonstrates, he’s only been called upon to kick short ones. That’s the explanation for his recent success.

They give Brad Smith‘s kick returning and Steve Weatherford‘s punting the same treatment. Check it out; It’s better than Phil Mushnick ranting and raving.
