So how hard does Roger Goodell hit James Harrison?
It has to be hard, right? In other leagues, players -- star players -- utter gay-bashing slurs and are fined large sums of money. Harrison just uttered one ... and according to this account of a story in Men's Journal, he uttered it about Roger Goodell.
So I'm thinking $250,000 and a game suspension. Maybe more, given that Harrison has been a thorn in the league's side for years -- handing out concussions as if they were lollipops, attacking players in the head in an era when that is strictly forbidden. This is an accumulation of offenses, of various varieties, and Harrison isn't getting the message.
Whatever Goodell does to Harrison, I'll support it.
And I'm thinking Ben Roethlisberger might enjoy it, too. Don't tell me you missed what Harrison told Men's Journal about his quarterback's play in the Super Bowl loss to Green Bay:
"Hey, at least throw a pick on their side of the field instead of asking the D to bail you out again. Or hand the ball off and stop trying to act like Peyton Manning. You ain't that and you know it, man; you just get paid like he does."

Brett Favre retired so he could spend more time with his family? Only if his family has four legs, snorts and gets shot at with rifles.
Joe Girardi hasn't managed his first real game for the Yankees, but already he has been verbally slapped to the ground by ancient Don Zimmer.
You know how baseball players are mocked in the movies for speaking in the most banal of cliches? They get taught to say that crap!
The Astros' Ty Wigginton delivered one of his own children. Sort of. This story is semi-graphic, but it sounds like Wigginton caught the kid in the shower as it was coming into this world. Nice hands, Ty. Manny Ramirez would have dropped that sucker.
When he was playing with Julius Erving and Maurice Cheeks, Andrew Toney was one strange dude. That hasn't changed.
Evidence continues to mount that Terrelle Pryor, the top football recruit in the country who has yet to decide between Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State and Oregon, is more trouble than he's worth.
You wanna know why, despite all of his transparent faults, I like UFC czar Dana White so much? Because he's a lot like me. He wakes up pissed off, for no good reason, and doesn't try to hide it.
