Well, that "retirement" was quick.

From Yahoo Sports (sports.yahoo.com)

    FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -- The New England Patriots and Junior Seau agreed to a contract Friday, ending his brief retirement.

    The team did not disclose terms of the deal.

    The 12-time Pro Bowl linebacker retired Monday after the Miami Dolphins cut him after three unremarkable seasons.

    At a news conference announcing his decision, Seau, 37, said he still could play.

    On Thursday, officials for the San Diego Chargers, his long-time team, confirmed Seau left a message for team president Dean Spanos alerting him he might sign with New England.

    The Patriots needed another linebacker because Tedy Bruschi has a broken hand and Willie McGinest, a mainstay of their three Super Bowl titles, signed with the Cleveland Browns as a free agent. Chad Brown and Monte Beisel also are hurt.

    Seau grew up in suburban San Diego and starred at Southern California before the Chargers took him fifth overall in the 1990 draft. He led San Diego to the 1995 Super Bowl -- its only appearance in the NFL title game -- but was cut in the spring of 2003.

I'd say he's only signing with the Patriots because of their recent Super Bowl pedigree. Then Seau could do his stupid "swing my fist and shake the turd down my leg" dance in a game that means something.

As much as wrestling retirements are bogus, have any of them only lasted three days?

The only thing that Seau should be sorry about is that he didn't bother to check and see if there was any interest in a team signing him after the Dolphins cut him.

I dunno about wrestling, but Krusty the Clown was retired for about 30 seconds.



Scene: Mark DeRosa's brain. The year is 2005.
Part of Mark DeRosa's brain: Come on, another position change? One day it's second base, the next day right field, now it's third? Why, I oughta go into Buck's office and throw his talking fish on the floor!
Other part of Mark DeRosa's brain: Hold on, other part of the brain. We're making $500,000 this year. Last year we made $725,000. All for playing a damn kids' game. This is, as they say in Brainland, a no-"us"-er. We're not going to complain.
Part of Mark DeRosa's brain: You're right, dude. Let's go back to looking at this crazy porn Teixeira gave us!

My wife and I both watched his "retirement" speech with equal parts amusement and horror on Monday evening. It was one of those things I would have expected Bill Simmons to do a running diary of due to the bizarrness of it. Then I said to her as I was watching NFL Total Access on Wednesday, "Remember that crazy guy who retired the other night? Well, he just signed with New England." Hillarious!





It is a good rule in life never to apologize. The right sort of people do not want apologies, and the wrong sort take a mean advantage of them.

So now maybe a return to the Dolphins is not out of the question for Ricky Williams? (ESPN.com) ESPN Radio says Ricky had two conditions for a possible reunion w/ the Fish: a contract readjustment (read: more $$$) and a different offensive coordinator.
