Mikell Has the Fire, Scares His Kid

Mikell Has the Fire, Scares His Kid

Quintin Mikell, like Donovan McNabb, did not make the trip to Foxboro with the team on Sunday night.  Instead, Mikell watched the game at his home where he could hear what Tom Brady was calling at the line of scrimage.

Mikell said he could tell from what Tom Brady was barking
out from behind center that the Patriots quarterback was fooled by the
Eagles' blitz package. "I wanted to get on the phone and tell somebody,
but you can't do that," Mikell said.

He found himself yelling at his television. "I scared my son a
couple times and he started crying," Mikell said. "I had to calm down."

Hilarious.  An amazing tidbit that shows that Mikell is both passionate and just like the rest of us when it comes to watching games (screaming at A.J. Feeley after his 2nd pick).

Mikell and McNabb's status for Sunday against the Seahawks is still up in the air.

Basebrawl! Bryce Harper fights Giants' Hunter Strickland after HBP

Harper was hit in the right hip by Strickland's 98 mph in the eighth inning with Washington ahead 2-0.

Harper pointed the bat toward Strickland, charged the mound and fired his batting helmet wide of the pitcher. They started to swing away and they each connected as the benches and bullpens emptied.

In the 2014 NL Division Series, Harper hit two home runs off Str

NBA Finals: Warriors coach Steve Kerr not well yet, but hasn't ruled himself out for Game 1

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Golden State's Steve Kerr expects to decide soon whether he will coach in the NBA Finals, saying Monday he's not yet ready but hasn't ruled himself out for Game 1.

Kerr said: "As of right now I would not coach Thursday night. It's still up in the air." He said that by Game 1, he might make a decision on his status.

The reigning NBA Coach of the Year, still not feeling well after a May 5 procedure to repair a spinal fluid leak, addressed the media Monday when acting coach Mike Brown was out with the flu.

He joked: "I told the team the good news is the team is really healthy, the bad news is the coaching staff is dropping like flies."

Brown has been coaching the team since Game 3 of the first round at Portland, with Kerr assisting at practice and from the locker room before and during games.
