Also, Dad Harbaugh stays neutral after Super Bowl

Tuesday, February 12, 2013 12:01 am
Michael Vick will remain with the Philadelphia Eagles for a contract worth up to $10 million this season. He'll be taking roughly a $6.67 million pay cut. The economy's tough these days, folks. As they say in the Vick household, thank goodness for coupons and Ramen noodles.Jack Harbaugh, father of Ravens coach John Harbaugh and 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh, opted not to give an opinion on whether 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree was held on a fourth-down pass near the end of the Super Bowl.

Dad Harbaugh impressively maintained his neutral ground no matter how many times Jim stomped his feet and cried “It's not fair! It's not fair! It's not fair!”Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Anquan Boldin said he will retire from football if he is released in a salary-cap move. Maybe it's me, but announcing this could be your last transaction wire appearance isn't quite as dramatic as Ray Lewis' playoff farewell, is it?A device installed specifically to prevent a power failure was the cause of the power failure at the Super Bowl. So it was kind of like how Rex Ryan was hired specifically to lead the New York Jets to the Super Bowl?The Cleveland Indians have signed Daisuke “Dice-K” Matsuzaka to a contract worth $1.5 million if he makes the 40-man roster.

Matsuzaka has won 50 games since signing a $52 million contract with the Red Sox in 2007, or about $1 million per win. Looks like the Indians can carve 1.5 wins in stone for this season.LeBron James joined Adrian Dantley and Moses Malone as the only NBA players to score at least 30 points and shoot 60 percent from the field in five straight games. While James took more outside shots, it should be noted Dantley and Malone accomplished their feats while wearing short shorts.The Serbian Cup basketball final was postponed Sunday because of fan violence and rescheduled for Monday in an empty arena. No, that arena was not in Sacramento.
