Oh heyyy! Chicago Bears Tim Jennings is the NFC defensive player of the month. The cornerback has been tearing things up this season leading the NFL with four interceptions in his first four games (the streak was snapped Monday during the Cowboys match-up, but the rest of the defense made up for it with 5 interceptions and two defensive TDs.)
A seven-year veteran, this is Jennings first player of the month honor. He had just seven interceptions in his career entering the 2012 season. I have a feeling he may break some personal records this season .
DRose at Media Day 2012
I’d like to send a birthday shout-out to my favorite Chicago Bull Mr. Derrick Rose. The former NBA MVP turns 24 today and I wish him nothing but happiness and success.
After a tragic season ending ACL injury things look to be on the up-and-up for Rose who made his way around the Berto Center for Media Day this past Monday. No noticeable limp, no grimaces or signs of discomfort, just smiles. He talked about how the injury has forced him to grow during his rehabilitation – specifically his patience – which may result in a better player overall. I like the sound of that!
(in my finest singing voice) Happy Birthday to you DRose, and many moooorre!
