After running our country’s foreign affairs as the Secretary of State under the Bush administration, Condoleezza Rice is now turning to modeling. The Cleveland native proudly supports the Browns in the “My Team” marketing campaign for NFL women’s clothing.
Rice joins Alyssa Milano and Serena Williams in what NFL’s director of apparel Rhiannon Madden said is “a message of empowerment. It’s your team–not your guy’s team.”
After finishing last place in the AFC North in 2011, Rice has some advice for the 4-12 Brown, “We’ve just got to find a way to score points,” she said. “Obviously, we’ve got to settle down the quarterback position.”
Do I foresee a future Jersey Chaser of the Month?
Cleveland Browns running back Peyton Hillis had a career year after he was traded from the Denver Broncos. Hillis was 8th in the AFC for rushing and scored 11 touchdowns.
According to reports, Hillis was traded after he hit on former head coach Josh McDaniel’s wife. But accordingly to Hillis, he was traded for another reason… the color of his skin. Hillis told the Huffington Post:
“In Denver they just wanted me to play strictly fullback, nothing else. I wasn’t too happy about the situation, but I was trying to be a team player. I just wanted to be on the field. It ended up I didn’t play anything at all…. They’ll say, ‘You white boy, you ain’t gonna run on us today. This is ridiculous. Why are you giving offensive linemen the ball? All kinds of stuff like that you hear on the field, but I use that to my advantage. I kind of soaked it in, ate it up a little bit, because I enjoyed it.”
Uh oh… did Thejerseychaser.com jinx Denver Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels? Via the Broncos official Twitter, the team announced McDaniels was out as the team’s head coach. Over the weekend, TJC reported how McDaniels traded Peyton Hillis was traded to the Cleveland Browns after he hit on McDaniel’s wife, Laura McDaniels. McDaniels may wish he kept Hillis since he is having a record breaking year, and the Broncos are 3-9. But sometimes you have to worry about the jersey chased and not the jersey chaser!
