Talk about a drug ring… Chicago police seized a Super Bowl XLV ring in a drug bust with connections to a Mexican drug cartel. Agents seized 20 kilograms of heroin, $1.4 million in cash and 18 firearms. The Super Bowl ring was apraised at $9,999, but it is not known how the drug traffickers came into possession of the ring belonging to a Packers executive.
The Chicago Drug Enforcement Administration was able to arrest six of the seven targets in the bust after using electronic surveillance in a six month investigation.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver and the newest winner of Dancing With The Stars is struggling with his new fame from the show. Despite catching more passes than any other Green Bay Packers receiver, more people know Driver from the celebrity dance competition.
The 13-year NFL veteran told ESPN Radio’s Scott Van Pelt, “As a dancer at this point. I think it’s more of the men, they still look at you as the NFL player but I think the women now look at you as ‘hey that’s that guy who was on Dancing With the Stars, he won it.’ Then they say ‘oh yeah that is Donald Driver.’ No one cares about you playing football anymore; they do care about you winning Dancing With the Stars though.”
Driver has had a busy off season including restructuring his contract with the Green Bay Packers, keeping him with the team until retirement.
After winning the competition last week Driver said, “It took me 13 years to win a Super Bowl. But it only took me one season to win a mirror ball. I’ve been watching the show for a long time and now I know what J.R. felt last year. That is truly something special. I feel the same way. Right now I’m on cloud nine.”
Erin Andrews is jersey chasing Tony Romo’s brother-in-law. Chace Crawford’s sister is married to the Dallas Cowboys quarterback and is rumored to be dating the ESPN sideline reporter and host of College Game Day. US Weekly is reporting that the couple have gone on a few dates and were seen at dinner in New York. Despite the eight-year age difference, according to the US Weekly insider, “Chace likes that she’s independent and already established.”
The usually coy Andrews is denying the report… subtley Andrews retweeted her rep Lewis Kay’s tweet: ”Would be more interesting if it was true.” The tweet is in constract to Andrews’ past rumored relationships. During her Dancing With The Stars season, Andrews refrained from commenting on whether she and partner Maksim Chmerkovskiy were dating. Whether they are or they aren’t, the timing of the story coincides nicley with the release of Crawford’s first major movie What To Expect, When You’re Expecting.
Tebowmania is taking over New York, and not even canines are safe. In an attempt to fully embrace his new team, Tim Tebow is changing his dog’s name to “Bronx.” Tebow got the Rodesian Ridgeback in 2010, during his rookie season with the Denver Broncos and named him ”Bronco” after the franchise. After acquiring Peyton Manning in the off season, the Denver Broncos traded Tebow for a four and sixth-round-draft-pick.
Today was the first day media was allowed into the Jet’s locker room, and Tebow is adjusting quite well to his new surrondings. The story was broke by NY Post Jets beat reporter Manish Mehta, who tweeted:“Tim Tebow will change his dog’s name from Bronco to Bronx. #nyj”
For Bronco/ Bronx’s sake, I hope the next team Tebow plays for has a “Bro” name attached to it.
