“She’s so like a Southern Belle,” Coco said.


Is Ashley Brown Mrs. AP?

There has been no big announcement of a marriage on Twitter’s @adrianpeterson account. The online version of the Vikings media guide has not been updated.

But word has it that Adrian Peterson has been walking around town introducing as “my wife” his girlfriend, Ashley Brown, who has also been identified by some as his fiancée. And Peterson is said to be wearing a new ring on the finger in question.

I’ve been bugging Peterson for confirmation on Twitter and have not yet received what would be my first tweet from him. Want to make sure there was a legal event and not a commitment ceremony.


Love and LeBron: power play?

Has Kevin Love been traded by the Timberwolves yet?

If he goes to the Cavs, as many sports guys believe will happen, Love’ll be playing with the most powerful player in the NBA, LeBron James. But this might not be the best power move, Israel Gutierrez said on ESPN’s “Sports Reporters”: “This was a calculated power move very few in sports have the influence to execute. LeBron’s going back to Cleveland on his terms and his choice would seemingly be to team with All-Star Kevin Love, not a 19-year-old prospect [rookie forward Andrew Wiggins],” Gutierrez said.

But what if Wiggins turns out to be a player with whom James could win now and years from now? asked Gutierrez. “See, power’s kind of scary sometimes.”

The power move I want to see James make in Ohio includes bringing good-paying, long-term jobs like those that might be found at a Beats factory. Not more sellers of concessions.
