LaRussa, Flutie daughters are NFL cheerleaders

Posted by Will Brinson

Apparently, the hip new thing for ladies of famous sportspeople in America is to join an NFL cheerleading squad.

Or, we just have two random aberrations on our hands with the daughters of Doug Flutie and Tony LaRussa signing up for the Patriots and Raiders squads, respectively.

LaRussa's daughter, Bianca, tried out for the Raiders back in mid-April and tweeted the news that she'd made the squad, along with the photo you see to the right.

"A goal and a dream come true- I'm a 2011 Raiderette! I'm so excited to rep an organization that does so much good," Bianca tweeted.

Flutie's daughter, on the other hand, will be suiting up for the Patriots -- as Chris Chase pointed out at Shutdown Corner , it's kind of surprising that Flutie has a 23-year-old daughter.

Not because 27-years-old is a weird age to start having kids (it's not), but because for those of us who remember Wade Phillips yanking him just in time for the "Music City Miracle" suddenly feel old as hell.

Of course, that's not as bad as working on this post mid-airplane-flight and having the passengers around me wondering and/or judging whatever semi-creepy thing I do for a living. (A: Blogging!)

But I digress -- here's a pic of the lovely young Ms. Flutie, the reigning Miss Massachusetts, with the rest of her fellow Patriot cheerleaders, courtesy of Boston.com .

And now you see why my fellow passengers were glaring, which is exactly the same thing that many an NFL fan will do next year, probably to the chagrin of LaRussa and Flutie.

NFL Podcast with Doug Flutie

Posted by Will Brinson

Doug Flutie's got plenty of experience with some of the more controversial football topics of our time.

For instance: should Reggie Bush give back his Heisman Trophy or should he keep his sketchy death grip on said trophy? Do the Bills know what the heck they're doing right now? Could Toronto support a football team? Whose fault is it that student-athletes are messing around with agents? And what is this new college football award that Capital One is handing out in 2010?

These are all questions we asked Flutie when we got a recent chance to chat with him on the CBSSports.com Football Podcast.

OchocincO's: the NFL's most exciting cereal?

Posted by Will Brinson

So, we're way late on this, but it doesn't make it any less awesome: Chad Ochocinco has his own cereal.

Just as Terrell Owens had his "TO's" through PLB Sports, now too does Esteban have OchocincO's .

“Chad is a great personality, and with his involvement in social media and his interaction with the fans, he was an athlete that we were very excited to work with,” said PLB Sports President Ty Ballou. “One way or another, America has learned and is continuing to learn more about Chad Ochocinco off the field, and they’re finding out how great he is. Who wouldn’t want to share a breakfast table with him?”

I, for one, would prefer to share dinner -- Ochocinco tweeted about some seriously delicious, Southern-style greens and chicken he was grubbing on Wednesday night, and I almost cooked up the same thing, except mom brought leftover meatloaf downstairs, and I wasn't hungry anymore.

Look, a lot of people are "over" Ochocinco, and that's fine (it's mostly football fans -- my girlfriend literally cannot watch "Ultimate Catch" enough; it's ironically depressing). But PLB Sports is smart when it comes down to creating athlete-related cereal.

They're the one's behind not only TO's breakfast munchies, but "Flutie Flakes" and "Kurt Warner's Crunch Time Cereal," which, according to CNBC's Darren Rovell , is the top-selling PLB brand, having sold over 300,000 boxes back when people cared about the Rams.
