Towards the end of yesterday's Chiefs/Broncos game, Clinton Portis and Shannon Sharp were shown on the sidelines posing with a World's Heavyweight Championship Belt (the RAW Belt). Asshole Greg Gumble, when informed it was a wrestling belt sarcastically noted that since it was a wrestling belt, it was obviously worthless. Perhaps Vince should send Dr. D Dave Schultz to teach Gumble some respect for the business. Or Better yet, Let Bradsaw do it!

I don't think you need to worry about sending wrestlers. I'd be willing to bet he got quite the talking to from the Viacom front office about it.

I'd take that bet - I've not seen anything to make me think the Viacom folks are any less clueless than, say, Time Warner was about WCW.

Yahoo! pics has a shot of it up here:

I really enjoyed the idea of a player getting more than a football for a great game. A belt for each team's best player which is then awarded to the team's MVP for the year? I could dig it.

As a Packer fan, I hate to pimp the Broncos' website. But as a wrestling fan (and, sadly, the owner of the same damn replica belt), it's my solemn duty.

Portis Gallops Into Franchise History (DenverBroncos.com)

But check the treatment given the belt:

    Originally posted by DenverBroncos.com
    With matters decided, he soon donned a belt reminsicent of what is usually given to a heavyweight boxing champion. Over the top? Perhaps. But whether one is dealing with off-the-field headwear, on-the-field footwear or touchdown celebrations, Portis has never been one for subtlety.

    The rout was on. Soon after, so was the infamous belt, which actually read, "World Heavyweight Wrestling Champion." It was as if he knew all along that turning in one of the great performances of franchise history was a part of Sunday's game plan.


And for those who've yet to see it:

HHH, your next feud awaits. Can the Pedigree silence 5 TD's?

True that, but Vince is probably a little more vocal than the yes men whose discussions at Time Warner meetings never got further than "how big is our check?"

Not to sway this from wrestling,b ut when I saw the picture of Portis with the belt, it jusr reminded me of all that is wrong with professional sprots. I mean, come on. You scored 5 TDs, but that is not even the record. I miss the days of Barry Sanders when he would glide into the end zone, jog over and hand the ball to the ref, and jog back to the bench and wait for his next turn to dazzle us. Sigh.

And then quit.

The year he began his self-exile, the Lions went to the playoffs, I believe.

And just to get this back to wrestling, how much do those replica belts go for?

Please, give me a break. Joy, and celebration is a part of sport. It is about personalities. You have your Sanders and Harrisions that get a TD and walk off the field, but you also have the players that like to celebrate. I think there is room for both kinds. Scoring 5 TDs in a game is something to celebrate. I wouldn't like it if everyone just jogged off the field after every TD. That would be quite boring. How is celebrating something wrong with pro sports? No one has quite explained that to me yet it isn't like he ran along the Chief's sideline with it on, rubbing it in their faces.

But I do wonder...did he have the belt sitting on the sideline all game long? Or was it from a fan?

Thus making him the SECOND guy from the UM football program to wear that belt

Although, I mean I'm sure it's well-built and all if they're charging $225 for it, but what the hell can you do with it unless a) you have a backyard fed or b) Your name is Tommy Rich and need something to hang on the mantleplace.

Celebrating isn't wrong, in moderation. Standing at home plate and watching a bail sail over the fence is wrong, especially if it doesn't clear the wall. Pumping your fist once or twice as you round the bases is OK. A little fist pump is never out of line; I do one with every A I get on a test. Once elbowed a guy in the gut, though.

Tommy Rich never wore that belt to begin with, so he would be a mark just like all the others who have purchased it.

The picture of Clinton wearing the belt made the front page of the Rochester (NY) D&C sports section today.

That is one BIG gold belt...
