Mashup: Ryan's wife allegedly in graphic pics

Graphic photos that claim to be of Michelle Ryan, wife of Jets coach Rex Ryan, surfaced on the web Thursday, a week after foot-fetish videos apparently featuring the couple were made public. In some of the photos at the celebrity gossip site mediatakeout.com, an unidentified man (not Rex) is rubbing and smelling the woman's feet. In others, the woman is on a bed in suggestive poses. According to the New York Daily News, the Jets coach will remain silent on the matter. "Coach Ryan considers this a personal matter and will have no comment," a Jets spokesman told the paper.

By: DJ Bean

On Nov. 28, the Thrashers embarrassed the Bruins. On Dec. 23, the Bruins embarrassed the Thrashers. Thursday night, they simply played a good game that ended in a 3-2 shootout victory for the Thrashers.

 

Tim Stapleton beat Tim Thomas with a snapshot to open the shootout, and Bryan Little scored 5-hole to seal it for Atlanta. Tyler Seguin and Blake Wheeler failed to convert on their opportunities.

 

Thrashers defenseman Tobias Enstrom scored on the power play in each of the first two periods, while Patrice Bergeron and Blake Wheeler scored for the Bruins in the first and second periods, respectively.

 

The Bruins have now picked up points in four straight games dating back to last week's 4-1 victory over the Thrashers. They are now 2-0-1 on their five-game road trip. They next will face the Sabres in Buffalo on New Year's Day (7 p.m.).

 

Thomas is now 18-4-4 on the season.
