Rajon Rondo: Has recently helped to raise $76,500 to improving basketball courts in Boston. Through a Red Bull sponsorship, in which $500 was donated every time Rondo made a steal last season, Rondo was able to give some city kids a place to play some basketball so they can learn to be as tough as he is on the court.
Osi Umenyiora: Recently underwent orthoscopic surgery on his right knee which will bench the two time pro bowler for 4-6 weeks. The Giants were ranked 29th in defense last year and after weeks of disputing over contract the Giants must be relieved as one of the best defensive ends in Umenyiora wishes to “complete” the season with the organization.
Gretchen Bleiler: Good luck to Olympic silver medalist Gretchen Bleiler as she heads to congress with other snowboarders to lobby for the Clean Air Act in September. If you wish to help Bleiler and her efforts you can get involved with signing a petition here.
Donavan McNabb: Even though the Vikings took a loss to the Tennessee Titans in a pre-season game, McNabb still hopeful about the offensive. However without many playmaker receivers and hoping that Adrian Peterson stays healthy the offensive situation for the Vikings will definetly be interesting this upcoming season.
