GET A HAIRCUT, HELP THE SPCA
Just got back from Tonya Sessoms Adam’s Beauty Box, where I got a haircut and the HB got a pedicure. Today, Adams’ business is donating 50 percent of all proceeds (she’s personally donating ALL her personal proceeds) to the SPCA.
My take: Please check it out — you can call Tonya at 252-522-3939 to set up an appointment. And if you can’t make it today, make a call and buy a gift certificate. Additionally, if you bring dog or cat food by, you can get a free gift certificate.
The SPCA does a tremendous job helping animals in our area — a mostly thankless, tough job. Please help them if you can.
SAINTS COACH SUSPENDED FOR A YEAR
The NFL punished New Orleans head coach Sean Payton by suspending him for a year — costing Payton $7.5 million in the process. The Saints also lost draft picks, paid a fine and the principal figure behind the mess (Gregg Williams) is suspended indefinitely.
My take: Pretty harsh, but not unfair in my opinion. If the NFL and commissioner Roger Goodell was trying to send a message, I’d say it’s been delivered. Now, if only MLB, the NBA and the NHL had similar strong commissioners, they might be better off, too.
TEBOW AND THE JETS
My take: Very, very curious — simply because the Jets already have a franchise quarterback to whom they recently paid a lot of money. I just don’t see how this is going to work — is Tebow going to play four to 10 plays a game (which I’ve heard mentioned)? Is he going to play in a fullback-type position? Again, just a curious move by the Jets.
