Going into his ninth NFL season, DeMarcus Ware is doing anything he can to make sure he stays healthy during training camp, even if that means not walking, unless he absolutely has to.
Ware has been spotted zipping around the Cowboys training camp in Oxnard, Calif. this summer on a Segway, the same two-wheeled device that are used by mall cops around the nation. He takes it from his hotel room to the locker room and even to the meeting rooms, pretty much the only time the linebacker uses his legs is when he is practicing on the field.
"When it's off time, it's off time," Ware told ESPN. "I'm kicking my feet back up on the Segway and getting to where I need to go and not walking."
Ware isn't the first NFL player to use a Segway to get around and preserve his legs, Houston Texans running back Arian Foster has been to known to use one as well. Foster even purchased one for each of the offensive linemen on the Texans as a Christmas gift last December, but Ware doesn't have any plans to share his wheels with his teammates, you know, because of 'safety concerns.'
"You've got to take a little class," Ware said, laughing. "I don't want anybody to get hurt... It goes fast, I like cruising. It's on 'turtle' right now. At home, I'll have it on 'rabbit' and it goes fast. Right now I just need to cruise where I need to go."

Following the procedure,...
LeBron James has made a pretty nice career for himself, winning back-to-back NBA championships and collecting four regular-season MVPs. But would the Miami Heat superstar be as dominant if he took his talents to the NFL?

While many athletes ignore rumors about them to avoid giving phony stories credibility, Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant decided to take one straight on. Someone running a now-deleted Twitter account called “NFL_NBA_Groupie” posted photos on Twitter of an alleged text conversation they had with Bryant. The conversation included raunchy talks about urination and strap-ons. [...]
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones spent a large portion of the offseason talking about his team's playcalling situation and its highly paid quarterback. He also brought in Monte Kiffin and Rod Marinelli to revamp a defense that has annually been at bottom of the league in takeaways.
It will be impossible to make any evaluations on those decisions after Sunday's Hall of Fame game...

The Dallas Cowboys are suddenly so thin at offensive line, they grabbed a player who lives 10 minutes from training camp in California.
Good thing they at least had James Nelson in rookie camp in May, even if they chose not to sign him.
The Cowboys lost a pair of guards in starter Nate Livings and backup Kevin Kowalski during their second week of camp. Livings is out at least two...
Apparently, the “Jolly Rancher” candy was not so jolly to Cowboys safety Barry Church. I guess you could say Church had to learn the “hard” way after chipping his tooth on a strawberry flavored Jolly Rancher. Church reported some small pains on and off for a couple of weeks after the incident, and then the pain started to mount. On Monday, Church had to go to the dentist...

No one is crying in sunny southern California at Dallas Cowboys training camp.

You thinking spending that $200 on a NFL jersey makes you a big fan, you might want to rethink that. This guy here takes being a super fan to a whole new level with his Dallas Cowboys Super Bowl shrine on his back.
My only question for dude is when/if Dallas are able to win another Super Bowl where does he plan to put it?

Having never gotten a tattoo I don't know exactly what drives people to get them. A lot of people I do know with them got them in honor of something like a fallen friend, the name of the kid(s), etc. Many have also done so to show the love they have of their favorite sports team.
If the size of the tattoo is supposed to say anything (i.e. how much the person loves something...
