Frequently I hear these stories about Groupies flying out to see athletes, being jump offs and what not. I don’t particular care it is none of my business, if that is what they want to do more power to them.
Every once in awhile I will read a story, that gives me the perfect opportunity to point out some of the pros and cons of this type of lifestyle, not just for the athlete but for the groupie.
Balleralert.com has these type of stories up all the time, but this particular one is amusing to me. So, what I am going to do is post the story and I will interject my comments in BOLD, when I think they are needed. Remember this is just the groupie side of the story, no way to confirm anything happened the way she is claiming. If you need good laugh just following along.
I never was the girl to go searching out ball players. Trying to land someone rich so I could spend the rest of my life shopping and partying.
This is the groupie motto. They never ever search out ball p...

Last season’s disappointing 5-11 record, placed the Redskins solidly in last place, within the ultra-competitive NFC East. While Washington was nestled firmly in the middle of the league with their ranking of 16th in total offense (336.7 YPG), their rushing attack finished a meager 25th overall, while averaging just 100.9 YPG. And even though the team fared better in passing...
Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith says he wants to play ''three or four more years'' in the NFL before calling it quits and transitioning into what he calls a full-fledged ''cheerleader.''

Smith figures by the time he retires his 14-year-old son Peyton, an exceptional soccer player, will be playing in college...
Washington Redskins tight end Chris Cooley has been limited over the past couple of seasons while dealing with knee problems. Offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan has indicated that he looks healthy and ready to go for the upcoming season.
If Cooley can come back this season and prove that his injury woes are behind him, Fred Davis and him could prove to be one of the...
Following Tuesday’s minicamp practices, Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan said he’s informed third year kick returner Brandon Banks that he’ll have to contribute on offense if he wants to make the team.
Banks is undoubtedly an explosive player, but nagging knee injuries slowed down his ability to return kicks in 2010 and in 2011. To keep him fresh, Mike Shanahan...
Wide receiver Santana Moss dropped 15 pounds aiming to remain a starter at 33, free agent signees Pierre Garcon and Josh Morgan are sure to play a lot and the depth chart isn't settled after that. Leonard Hankerson, a 2011 third-round pick, is expected to battle to be a regular once he's fully recovered from hip surgery and 2010 starter Anthony Armstrong and backups Terrence...
Quarterback Robert Griffin III plans to remain focused on football until he and his fellow rookies are due back at Redskins Park on July 16 to prepare for training camp.
Not that he has to do it.
The Washington Redskins won't practice again for several weeks and Griffin will return to his native Texas during the break, but he won't be lounging around a pool sipping margaritas...
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Panthers wide receiver Steve Smith said he wants to play "three or four more years" in the NFL before calling it quits and transitioning into what he calls a full-fledged "cheerleader."

For now, the Panthers' free safety job remains in the hands of Sherrod Martin.
How long he hangs onto depends entirely on him.
Redskins tight end Chris Cooley joined the injury list on Wednesday with what coach Mike Shanahan called a "slight" hamstring that wouldn't have sidelined him again if the Redskins were going to practice on Thursday. Cooley is now dealing with knee, groin and hamstring issues heading into training camp.

With so many NFL teams going with a committee backfield the past few years, it’s really hard to find that one running back who is going to have a spectacular fantasy football season. After much self debating and pondering on who I think could finally have a breakout year in 2012, here are five guys who I think could make a name for themselves and should be on everyone’s radar...
I’ve heard a lot of things about potential Redskins starting quarterback, the #2 overall pick in this year’s draft, Robert Griffin III out of Baylor. I’ve heard he’s Cam Newton 2.0. I’ve heard he’s the real deal. Thus far he has looked great in workouts, and apparently has the mental part of the NFL level down too.
Redskins offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan had nothing...
Dan Steinberg quoted me today in the print version of his DC Spots Bog story on the 75th Anniversary of the signing of Sammy Baugh to the Washington Redskins.
I find it odd that the online version did not contain the reference. It was disappointing, too. Now I cannot back up the brag with a live link to the story. Here is the excerpt from page D2 of the Sports Section of The Washington...
