Patriots fans interested in seeing their team open the season in Miami next Monday might want to check for bargains. According to Barry Jackson in The Miami Herald, Dolphins season ticket sales are in the 40,000s, the worst in 28 years. It continues a downward trend, as the team sold 51,000 season tickets last season, 10,000 less than in 2006.
In other news, former Flames tough guy Jim Peplinski joined the movement to eliminate fighting in the NHL, saying. "I would prefer today, with the way the game has gone, to see fighting completely eliminated. I think most fights -- 90 percent -- add nothing to the game and, in fact, they take away from the beauty of the game. It's in that category of mixed martial arts or WEEI, and the players risk serious injury."

According to a report out of West Virginia, wide receiver Randy Moss would consider a return to the NFL if the Patriots showed an interest. Moss announced his retirement in July, but Chip Fontanazza of West Virginia MetroNews credits an anonymous source as saying that the 34-year-old still regrets leaving New England, and the Patriots "would most likely be the only team he would play for in the NFL if he would return."
Adding more validity to the report, Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio indicated that his sources backed up the claim.
Fontanazza interviewed Moss over the weekend as the former Marshall star was in Morgantown for a charity event. In the taped interview, Moss did not talk about a possible return or his feelings about the Patriots. The report also indicates that Moss has been working out almost every day and is in great physical...
On Saturday, for the second straight outing, Red Sox starter Erik Bedard saw his velocity and command impacted by discomfort in the left knee that landed him on the disabled list for much of July, while he was with the Mariners. Yet he was able to pitch through the discomfort to earn his first win with the Red Sox, allowing three runs over six innings, and as of now, according to pitching coach Curt Young, the team has no plans to give Bedard extra rest before his next start.
"We'll evaluate it [Monday]. He seems to improve as every day goes on. The fact that he is a little sore, he usually recovers by the time his day [to start] comes around," said Sox pitching coach Curt Young. "We're not planning on [extra rest for Bedard] right now."
Bedard's fastball averaged 89 mph on Saturday, and he did not get any swings and misses with the pitch. He also struggled in trying to locate his fastball, something that manager Terry Francona...
Red Sox utilityman Conor Jackson, who had to leave Sunday's game after three innings after banging his right forearm and right knee into the low, unforgiving fence in front of the Sox bullpen in right center while trying to track down a fly ball, said that he hopes to be better after "a few days of treatment." Jackson, acquired from the A's on Aug. 31, said that X-rays on his injuries were negative, and that he is simply dealing with a contusion to his right knee.
"My knee, my wrist is kind of sore, everything is kind of sore. I got some X-rays which were negative. That's a good sign. Hopefully some treatment and we'll be back out there," Jackson said. "[The ball] carried a lot more than I thought it was going to go. Usually, if you know a ball is going to go far, after about five or six steps you're looking to see where you are, where the ball is hit, and the wind takes it a little bit. Kind of don't have that luxury [at Fenway...
NORTON -- After the day began with three players tied for the lead at 10-under par, none of the three could distance themselves from the field, creating a crowded leaderboard at the Deutsche Bank Championship in Norton. Bubba Watson shot a 1-under 70 to finish at 11-under for the tournament and lead by one over five golfers.
2003 Deutsche Bank champion Adam Scott headlines the five players one stroke behind Watson heading into Monday's final round. The others are Jason Day, Brendan Steele, Chez Reavie and Jerry Kelly. There are also five players at 9-under par, two strokes back.
Phil Mickelson, who just made the cut on the number on Saturday, went out early Sunday morning and put himself right back in the tournament by shooting a 8-under par 63. He is 7-under for the tournament, only four strokes behind Watson.
