Kirk Cousins discusses what it’s like to be called ‘Kurt’

Kirk Cousins has been put in the unenviable position of picking up the pieces in the wake of how the Washington Redskins so completely bungled the starting quarterback position in benching Robert Griffin III and inserting him as the team’s starting quarterback.

Rob Gronkowski set to launch ‘Gronk’s Hot Sauce’

In an almost-perfect marketing match of endorser and product, New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is set to launch his own brand of hot sauce. Fittingly, it’s called Gronk’s Hot Sauce, a “12-ounce sauce made from cayenne and habanero peppers,” per a WCVB report.
