Morning Links: It's not for breakfast anymore

Here's a few links for you to peruse as you drink your morning coffee: 
Sam Hurd

We are guessing that Chicago Bears wide receiver Sam Hurd won't be participating in this Sunday's game  at home against the Seattle Seahawks. 

The reason.

According to Federal Agents, Hurd tried to buy 5-10 kilos (not ounces) of cocaine and a half-ton of marijuana a week for distribution in the Chicago area at roughly $2.8 million a month. He'll be arraigned Friday afternoon and is currently being held in the Metropolitan Correction Center in the Chicago area.

Needless to say, Hurd's teammates were aghast. 
The investigation into the death of Indy car driver Dan Wheldon October 16th at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway has come to a conclusion.

The report says Wheldon suffered a "Non-Survivable Injury" when his head hit a vertical post on the tracks catch fence.

The report goes on to discuss in detail the conditions of the track and the driving that helped create the problem. It pays particular attention to the large grooves on the LV Motor Speedway track.

WISH-TV in Indianapolis gives us a TV Story on it:


In case you missed it: The atttention grabbing Milan Lucic got into another "Slobberknocker". This time he tangles with Matt Carkner of the Ottawa Senators. 

And it wasn't bad as far as fights go.

Take a look: (Thanks


Also...In case you missed it:

Patrick Kane, wunderkind and star of the Chicago Blackhawks gives us a lesson in how to score in a shootout. No, it wasn't an all-out rush/blitz on the goal tender with a ripping wrist shot.

Rather it was a slow-motion, deke-fest as he casually skates up, slides the puck back and forth before depositing it over Minnesota Wild goalie Niklas Backstrom's shoulder. 

Game over.
