Finally getting the jewels back!!!!

Over $1 million in borrowed jewelry currently being held by the LAPD as evidence in the case against Chris Brown will finally be returned to Rihanna! Rihanna's attorney, Donald Etra, made a request earlier this week for the jewels that were worn by Rihanna on the night of the alleged attack to be returned ASAP. The jewelers that loaned Rihanna the jewels wanted the singer to cough up over $1.4 mil if the court failed to hand over the bling! Thankfully, a deal was drawn up today and prosecutors agreed that photographs of the jewelry would suffice as evidence in place of the jewels themselves.

X-Men LeAkEd, OoPs

Earlier this month, the new Wolverine movie had been leaked onto the Internet. Huge Ooops!
The brains over at Fox weren't too pleased with that and they even enlisted the help of the FBI to find the culprit(s). But, good news for those of you that already saw the leaked version, the movie now has extra scenes that were included last minute.
According to Director Gavin Hood, the flick now features two different surprise endings. The movie, which hits theaters this Friday, will play short bits of the footage after the credits. The clips are said to reveal important info about the main characters. But there's a catch. Hood reveals that the endings play on separate prints, so it turns out that different endings may play in different theaters. Not cool! If you're gonna pay to legally watch the flick, you should be able to watch both endings. At least I think so. Will you be going to watch Wolverine this weekend? Cause I am!!

TyRa BaNkS' sTaLkEr!!!

As many have seen and heard earlier this week, Tyra Banks had to go to court to testify against some crazy ass stalker, 38-year-old Brady Green. According to reports, Tyra testified today against Green in an attempt to persuade the court that the Georgia man is indeed a threat to her and those around her. She told the court that:

"I fear my safety. I feel extremely vulnerable. I fear the safety of my staff. My family. The people in my vicinity. [My staff doesn't] tell me about fans. They said this person threatened one of my staffers. At that moment that was it. The first thing is there's this person who's more than a fan. I was at work one day about to leave and a bunch of people on my staff said, 'No! You can't go.' [Green] got past security and you need to be here. Never in my career had staff reacted like this. I had to stay in my dressing room for a while."
So how has this affected Tyra? She revealed:

"My life has changed significantly, even the people who know me. I don't live that sheltered life. I like to walk around my neighborhood. I run outside. I like to go to the movies by myself, eat meals by myself. My company hired security. When I'm at the movies, in a restaurant, they are there with me. I can't jog outside anymore. I would go with a trainer or alone but with security present. The show made significant changes. They hired security. Plain clothes too. Budget is everything but they understood that was necessary. The extra [expenditures] were made."
So, did Green really pose that much of a threat to Tyra? The court will hopefully decide soon, but if he's convicted he'll only face a maximum of 90 days in jail.

Eminem Punishes the Cover of XXL

Eminem Punishes the Cover of XXL!
Eminem is looking extra dangerous on the cover of XXL, as he opens up about his life, career and comeback. Below you can catch a huge expert of the June 2009 issue.

Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Marshall Mathers returns to his favorite magazine to speak out on freedom of speech, satire, race, music, Michael Jackson and the President. Pay attention, homie!
In the waiting area of 54 Sound, a state-of-the-art recording studio tucked away on a typically nondescript stretch of Detroit’s 9 Mile Road, a scenario is unfolding that few hip-hop fans could ever imagine: Eminem—rap’s contentious king of pain, the pale poster boy of beef, Mr. Anger Management himself—is in the midst of being served a barrage of snaps courtesy of a fellow entertainer. And... miraculously, he isn’t losing it. In fact, he’s laughing his ass off.
“[Eminem] should lighten up,” quips Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, the infamously acerbic canine hand puppet from Late Night With Conan O’Brien, on a flat-screen TV across the room. “I mean, my mom was a bitch too, but I don’t go writing songs about it!”
Slouched in a black armchair, sipping on a 7-11 Big Gulp, the bespectacled Em LOLs like it ain’t no thing as the dog pounds his public persona. A crew of handlers chuckles along.
“But I’ll leave Eminem alone,” Triumph says with mock sensitivity before adding a final punch line. “He’s just a guy trying to make an honest living… ripping off Black culture!”
The room erupts in laughter, Em’s guffaws audibly trailing off last. Maybe at some other point in the rap superstar’s notoriously combative past, such barbs would’ve elicited a less laid-back response. But somehow this peculiar scene seems completely appropriate here and now. Having just turned 32, Eminem might finally be mature enough to take a joke at his own expense. Yet he’s still juvenile enough to enjoy the crude rants of a dog-puppet character with a funny accent. (Whereas, upon meeting him at the 2002 MTV VMAs, he shoved poor Triumph—and comedian-creator Robert Smigel—out of his way.)
For more on the dichotomy of Em look no further than the blond bomber’s new album, Encore, an exemplary effort despite the fact that the serious-minded Marshall Mathers side and sillier-than-ever Slim Shady seem to be drifting further and further apart. On the one hand, damn-near-cinematic narratives such as “Yellow Brick Road" and “Like Toy Soldiers” address last year’s controversies involving race and beef with insight and masterful storytelling skills. On the other, thoroughly bugged-out numbers like “Rain Man,” “Big Weenie” and “Ass Like That” find him avoiding serious content altogether, playfully experimenting with off-the-wall flows and random word associations with the giddiness of a kid trying out new toys on Christmas morning. For every “Mosh,” the noble anti-Bush bash designed to mobilize young voters and inspire a complacent hip-hop nation, there’s a “Just Lose It,” the LP’s predictably pop-friendly lead single sure to irritate staunch hip-hop heads as easily as it pleases the masses and moves their asses.
Speaking of “Just Lose It,” there is a high probability that you, dear reader, are aware of the brouhaha said single set off with another oft-troubled mega-star who once repped for Motown. Taking issue with the satirical portrayal of himself in the song’s video, Michael Jackson cried foul in print and over the airwaves this past October, and a number of public figures (BET’s Robert Johnson, comedian Steve Harvey, etc.) came to his side in support. Also among the MJ sympathizers, The Source magazine’s publisher David Mays and CEO Raymond “Benzino” Scott reiterated past charges that Eminem has made “a mockery” of hip-hop, and (unsuccessfully) called for him to scrap the song and publicly apologize to the King of Pop (thus, once again putting XXL in the uncomfortable position of reporting on a story that directly involves our competition).
Three days after Dubya recaptured the White House for four more years, Eminem took a few moments between screenings of Triumph’s greatest hits and his extensive production work on the latest posthumous 2Pac LP, Loyal To The Game (a project he describes as “a dream come true”), to discuss the latest batch of issues that have arisen in Encore’s wake.

XXL: With your more recent records, it seems like your producing is influencing your vocals. You’re experimenting with different cadences, rhyming in melody more than ever. Is that something you’re doing consciously?
Eminem: Um, well it kind of goes back to just my ear. I seen a quote recently from Nelly where he said that there’s rappers that stay on top of the beat, there’s rappers that stay behind the beat and he wants to be inside the beat. And that would be the best way to describe it. I mean, I don’t think me and Nelly, stylistically, are similar at all. But I would definitely agree with that quote that he gave, because that’s the same way I feel as far as just wanting to be inside the beat, just hearing the melody and locking into the rhythm. Whatever the bass line is doing, whatever the drums are doing, I want to sink right into that. On TheMarshall Mathers LP I got a little better at riding beats, like staying on top of them. But on The Eminem Show I started riding the hi-hat instead of the snare or the bass drum, like with “Cleanin’ Out My Closet.” Every time I do a new song, it’s like I’m learning a new trick.

There are certain songs on this album where you seem to be more intent on having fun with flows and placing less emphasis on content. Does it ever concern you that this could come at the expense of your lyrics?
I always concentrate on lyricism, whether I’m trying to make a point or I’m just buggin’ out. A song like “Toy Soldiers” has an eight-bar drum loop that sounds like marching-band drums. I took it home and I studied the pattern that it was doing. I wrote the rhyme right to it. Just memorized the pattern and learned it by heart. I tried to make every word hit on the kicks and the snares.
It’ll usually start out, when I first start making the record, that the first five, six or seven songs will be dark, like real emotional. And then, usually at the tail end, I get in with Dre, and that’s when I start making the crazy shit. His beats do something to me. They just inspire me to say bugged-out shit. When I hear his beats, I swear his beats talk to me. So the melody, there’s no trick to it. It sounds like his beats are saying it.

Dre produced “Just Lose It,” which was one of the last songs you did for this record, correct?
Yup, it was the last song. We kinda felt like I didn’t have a first single yet with the stuff that I did here in Detroit. So [Dre and I] went down to a studio in Florida and we just banged out the rest of the album.

You obviously put a lot of care into what you do, but I feel like your personal stuff is always more compelling than the radio singles.
I feel that way too.
When I hear “Just Lose It,” I can understand why regular people like it. But it’s not the song off this album that’s going to speak to me as a hip-hop listener.
There’s a certain level where you gotta follow a happy medium. I’m not gonna put out anything that I don’t like or I don’t stand behind, but that was just another fun song. “Mosh” was the only really serious song, with a serious mood and message, that came out of that group of songs that we did [in Florida]. But you got a whole album you want to bring people to. You want as many people to hear it as possible. So if those are the tricks you gotta do to get the people to hear it, and bring them to your album…
Rap is usually based on first-week sales. Your biggest week has gotta be your first week, and then it kinda just starts declining after that. So you gotta hit ’em out the box with a single. And every now and then it doesn’t have to be a “Just Lose It” or a “Real Slim Shady.” [8 Mile’s] “Lose Yourself” came out the box and was not one of them songs that was a cheeseball—you know what I’m sayin’, meant-to-be-fun song or something like that.

But can’t you take the chance of not going for that sort of single at this point? It seems like you’ve reached a level of success where you could put out a street single that’s also your commercial single, say like a Nas “Made You Look.”
Well, you know, we had discussions about that—me and Dre. And it’s not just me running that food chain. It’s not just me always calling the shots. I’m not always necessarily my own boss, so to speak. Between me, the label and Dre it’s got to be a mutual decision. Is this gonna make a big enough impact? Do we come out with this right out the jump, come out so serious and dark to where people don’t even know that the album’s out because it ain’t getting played on radio? Do you roll the dice like that? Or do you take a song like “Just Lose It” and throw it out there for the kids and for the clubs, and know that you got something like “Mosh” to follow up behind to say, This is what I want to say, this is my message? I got you to listen to me, I got your ears open. Now, here’s my song that’s gonna make a statement. Because “Just Lose It” ain’t really about nothing. Sometimes I get in them slaphappy moods where I just say anything.

What are your reflections on this whole Michael Jackson situation? It kind of came and went in a way, but some people did come out against you.
Well, I didn’t really think too much about it. I thought it was blown way out of proportion. I mean, there’s a line in there: “That’s not a stab at Michael/That’s just a metaphor/I’m just psycho”—basically [explaining] that I’ll say anything. That’s Slim Shady talking. But people don’t look at it like that a lot of times. [When we shot the video] we started trying to think of ’80s pop icons I could dress up as—obviously Michael being one of ’em, and Madonna—which is not the most enjoyable thing to do [laughs]. But you wanna get people’s goat, and you wanna make people laugh and all that shit.

Hey, you did it for Michigan.
[Laughs] Yeah… no doubt! I guess [Michael’s] very sensitive and he probably felt like he got it the worst. We pretty much thought it was equaled out throughout the video. I’m doing MC Hammer moves, the Pee Wee Herman thing. Obviously, this is a joke.
On His Drug Addiction: “I wasn’t really mentally. I wasn’t ready to give up drugs. I didn’t really think I had a problem. Basically, I went in, and I came out. I relapsed, and I spent the next three years struggling with it. Also, at that time, I felt like I wanted to pull back, because my drug problem had got so bad. I felt like, maybe if I take a break, maybe this will help. I started to get into the producer role more…I can still be out there with my music, like with the Re-Up album, but I don’t have to be in the spotlight the whole time.”
On Proof’s Death: “Everyone felt his loss, from his kids, to his wife, to everyone. But, for some reason, in hindsight, the way I felt was almost like it happened to just me… Maybe at the time I was a little bit selfish with it. I think it kind of hit me so hard. It just blindsided me. I just went into such a dark place that, with everything, the drugs, my thoughts, everything. And the more drugs I consumed, and it was all depressants I was taking, the more depressed I became, the more self-loathing I became… By the way, I’m just now at the point where I’m better talking about it. It took me so long to get out of that place where I couldn’t even speak about it without crying or wanting to cry… Proof was the anchor. He was everything to D12. And not just the group-for me, personally, he was everything.”
On T.I., Lil Wayne & Hip-Hop: “I stayed up on the music, and obviously I watch TV and saw what was going on. And without naming any name, it just felt like hip-hop was going downhill. And it seemed like kinda fast. You know, in them three years, it was like everybody just cares about the hook and the beat; nobody really cares about substance. But with this new T.I. album, with this new Lil Wayne album of recent, it seems like things are looking a lot better now. You can appreciate Lil Wayne using different words to rhyme and actually rhyming words that you know. Or T.I., where you hear shit and you’re like Whoa, ah, I wish I would have thought of that! You know what I mean? Or you hear all the compound-syllable rhyming and all that. It just seems like now the craft is getting cared about more.”


In the June 2009 VIBE magazine - Eminem talks about how he almost killed himself while taking a variety of pills, but now he is back and ready to take over the rap game again!

Arizona Cardinals no longer have an Edge

The Arizona Cardinals no longer have an Edge. The team cut four-time Pro Bowl running back Edgerrin James today, a move that many had been expecting throughout the offseason.
Despite the seemingly imminent move, the Cardinals had ignored James' requests for an earlier release. Arizona finally acquiesced three days after using a first-round draft pick on "The" Ohio State running back Chris "Beanie" Wells.
Coming off a storied seven-year NFL career with the Indianapolis Colts, James was one of the league's top free-agent signings in 2006 when he landed a four-year, $30.5 million contract in Arizona.
James rushed for more than 1,100 yards in his first two Cardinals seasons, but was relegated to a complementary role for most of last year, playing alongside rookie Tim Hightower. James had a late-season resurgence, rushing for 100 yards in a Week 17 victory over Seattle and 73 yards in playoff wins versus Atlanta and Philadelphia. James started and had nine rushes for 33 yards in Arizona's loss to Pittsburgh in Super Bowl XLIII.
No matter how well he played in the postseason, James had no future in Arizona. The two-time All-Pro selection wanted out of Arizona last fall after having his playing time slashed, while the Cardinals had no interest in paying James a $5 million base salary in 2009.
"E.J. is excited about signing with a new team," agent Drew Rosenhaus told FOXSports.com in a text message. "So far, several teams have expressed interest. We may have a deal in place in the very near future." Cincinnati, New Orleans, Kansas City, Cleveland and Seattle are teams that could use upgrades at running back.
James, who turns 31 in August, is one of the most productive rushers in league history. His 12,121 yards rank 11th on the NFL's all-time list. He is 123 yards from supplanting Marcus Allen in the Top 10

Eminem's Relapse Album Cover

Eminem's just-released artwork for his upcoming album Relapse makes us long for the days of the vinyl LP. What better way to take in the prescription pill-laced collage of Slim Shady? On his own Twitter page, Eminem himself writes "This is getting very real..." and includes a link to the image that you can see here. The artwork is a close-up head shot of Em over a black background, with his face being a mosaic of hundreds of little pills and capsules. Eminem has spoken publicly about an addiction to prescription drugs, which included a well-publicized stint in rehab and a later relapse - hence, the title. Though it may be difficult to read, the sticker on the lower-left hand corner of the cover is a de facto part of the artwork. It reads "Mathers, Marshall, 8 Mile Road, Detroit, Michigan," "Refills: 5-19-09," "Prescribed By Dr. Dre."



This is a hot one.

Image of Battered Rihanna Released

A photo of battered-looking music superstar Rihanna has been obtained by the entertainment Web site TMZ.com. The photo was reportedly taken by police after her boyfriend Chris Brown allegedly assaulted her the night of the Grammy awards nearly two weeks ago. In the photo, the singer's lips appear swollen, she has welts on her forehead and bruises on her eyes, nose and cheeks. Rihanna, who turns 21 today, was also bitten on the arm, according to TMZ. The photo could determine whether criminal charges will be brought against Brown, 19, and the severity of those charges. "If there's just swelling then Chris Brown may get away with simply being charged as a misdemeanor. If that picture does in fact depict broken bones, facial fractures, contusions, then he's looking at a felony and probable jail time," said ABC News legal analyst Dana Cole. Brown, an R&B superstar, was arrested Feb. 8 and booked on suspicion of making felonious criminal threats to a woman whom authorities have not publicly identified. The publication of the photo has created another controversy. The Los Angeles Police Department launched an internal investigation and asked for the public's help in finding the person who leaked it. A police news release said the image "has the appearance" of one taken during a domestic violence investigation, and classified its release as a case of serious misconduct that could result in termination. In an interview with ABC News Radio, TMZ.com news manager Mike Walters asserted his organization obtained the photo legally. "To my knowledge and to TMZ's knowledge, this is not a photo from the LAPD ... TMZ legally obtained this photo and we posted it on our website," Walters said. "This photo is a story in itself, it doesn't need any text or editorial judgment. It tells a thousand words."



Florida quarterback Tim Tebow underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder Monday morning to remove a bone spur and chronic inflammation. Tebow, who led the Gators to the BCS National Championship on Thursday with a 24-14 win over the Oklahoma Sooners, is expected to be able to throw within 3-4 weeks and is expected to be ready to play in spring practice. Tebow is left-handed, so the surgery is on his non-throwing shoulder. "The surgery went well," team physician Dr. Pete Indelicato said in a Florida news release. "He should be able to begin throwing in the next three to four weeks and a full recovery is expected." Tebow was originally injured during the 2007 Heisman season, and reaggravated the injury this season against Hawaii. Tebow announced Sunday at a rally that he plans to return to Florida for his senior season in 2009. Tebow threw for 231 yards and ran for another 109 in the FedEx Orange Bowl last week. He was named the game's offensive most valuable player. Tebow threw 32 touchdown passes in 2007, ran for 23 more scores and became the first sophomore to win the Heisman. This season, he completed 64 percent of his passes for 2,746 yards with 30 touchdowns and four interceptions. He also led the team in rushing for the second straight year, gaining 673 yards and scoring 12 times. Florida coach Urban Meyer said Sunday that receiver Louis Murphy and guard Carl Johnson also were going to have knee surgery. AP


Tim Tebow started to walk off stage, then called an audible. The Florida quarterback turned around, grabbed the microphone and told teammates, coaches and fans exactly what they wanted to hear. "Oh, by the way, let's do it again. I'm coming back next year," Tebow said. Tebow thrilled more than 40,000 at the school's national championship celebration Sunday by announcing plans to return for his senior season, with hopes of leading the Gators to their first undefeated season and fourth national title. "Overall, I just felt loyal to this place," Tebow said. "I feel like I'm a role model, and a lot of times people start things and don't finish them. I didn't want to be like that. I wanted to be loyal to the university. I wanted to finish what I started and play another year." Tebow threw 32 touchdown passes in 2007, ran for 23 more scores and became the first sophomore to win the Heisman Trophy. He did less this season, but accomplished more by leading Florida to its second national title in three years. Tebow completed 64 percent of his passes for 2,746 yards with 30 touchdowns and four interceptions. He also led the team in rushing for the second straight year, gaining 673 yards and scoring 12 touchdowns. The 6-foot-3, 240-pound left-hander was 18-of-30 passing for 231 yards, with two and two interceptions in Thursday night's 24-14 victory against Oklahoma in the Bowl Championship Series title game. He also ran for 109 yards, most of it in the second half. There was speculation he might head to the NFL, especially since he has talked about wanting a bigger platform to share his religious message and expand his community work, but Tebow said he never strongly considered leaving early. Coach Urban Meyer set him up with several NFL coaches to talk about his pro prospects. Although Tebow said he got mixed feedback, nothing he heard swayed his decision. "It was tough because some of that stuff is tempting at the next level and everything that goes along with it, especially ending on a great note ending with the national championship and moving on from there," Tebow said. "I love these guys and coach Meyer and this program too much and I feel we can still end on a bang next year." The Gators had three seniors in the starting lineup against the Sooners, meaning just about everyone could return next season. Receiver Percy Harvin and linebacker Brandon Spikes, fellow juniors considering turning pro, didn't address their futures Sunday. The deadline for underclassmen to apply for the NFL draft is Thursday. Meyer said assistant offensive line coach John Hevesy has decided to leave Florida for a job at Mississippi State. Offensive coordinator Steve Addazio also missed the celebration because he was in the hospital recovering from a knee infection. Meyer said Tebow's announcement clearly means a lot. "There's the functional football player part of it, but we all know it's much deeper than that," he said. "He is so good for college football. He is unbelievable. When my daughter texts me in the morning the Bible verse he has under his eyes it's good for college football, it's good for young people, it's good for everything." Tebow spent most of Saturday with Meyer and told the coach his decision late in the day. Not coincidentally, Meyer said he enjoyed his best night's sleep in a while. It eased Tebow's mind, too. "I wanted to get it done with because I could barely sleep as it is thinking about it and I just wanted to enjoy winning a national championship and not have to worry about this," Tebow said. "It was a little bit of a burden on me. I wanted to just get it done with and enjoy winning a national championship for a week or so." Still, Tebow wasn't sure how to announce his intentions. Meyer suggested rewarding fans who showed up for the celebration on a cloudy, drizzly day. Tebow obliged, but not until the very end of the 75-minute celebration. The day started with a replay of the title game, then everyone watched a highlight video of the season. Meyer introduced his seniors, his assistants and then handed things over to players. They quickly turned it into a combination of "Dancing With the Stars" and "American Idol," since safety Major Wright and defensive line coach Dan McCarney danced on stage and the team chaplain sang a cappella. Safety Ahmad Black delivered the best one-liners of the day. When asked about his fourth-quarter interception against Oklahoma, the one he ripped out of receiver Juaquin Iglesias' hands, Black said, "I think Iglesias might have to get in the weight room some more." When asked about holding the high-scoring Sooners to 14 points and 363 yards, both season lows, Black said, "Sixty points? Like Spikes said, Big 12 defenses are a joke. We'd have to play like 12 overtimes for them to score 60 points." Throughout it all, fans kept chanting, "One more year, one more year." Tebow laughed them off at first. He might have even duped some fans when he walked on stage to the "Superman" theme song and started thanking everyone. Then he called his audible. "It means a lot for our team, program, everything," offensive lineman Mike Pouncey said. "Tim's going to be a big key for us next year. We really need him. ... It's going to give us a big edge for next year. He made the right decision by not leaving and coming back." AP


Josh McDaniels agrees to a four-year deal with the Denver Broncos today. The man who ran the New England Patriots' high-scoring offense is taking over. McDaniels, the Patriots' 32-year-old offensive coordinator, agreed to a four-year deal to replace Mike Shanahan, who was fired Dec. 30 after 14 seasons with a 146-91 record. "Josh McDaniels is one of the finest people and brightest, most talented coaches I have ever worked with," New England coach Bill Belichick said in a statement. "Since joining us eight years ago, Josh performed a variety of roles and excelled in every one of them." Cornerback Dre' Bly was one of many Broncos players excited about the team's new head coach. "That's enthusiasm, man," Bly said, according to the Rocky Mountain News. "Coach Shanahan had a lot of respect. Guys looked up to him and had a good relationship. But with a guy like him, it's like with [Broncos assistant] Jeremy Bates -- exciting, enthusiasm. It's like what Mike Tomlin brings to Pittsburgh. He brings excitement to that team. It's good for our team. And I hope we respond to him." McDaniels reportedly already has started filling his staff with the Broncos. NFL.com reported that former 49ers head coach Mike Nolan is expected to join Denver as the team's defensive coordinator. AP


After seven seasons with the Colts, Tony Dungy retires saying this was the right moment to do so. "These seven years have been better than I could ever have imagined," Dungy, the only black coach to win a Super Bowl, said at a news conference Monday. "I just have to thank everyone." Assistant head coach Jim Caldwell will replace Dungy. On and off for five years Dungy has debated on the option to retire and spend more tme with his family. He said he and his wife discussed the decision. "We just felt this was the right time," Dungy said. "Don't shed any tears for me. I got to live a dream most people don't get to live." Dungy is the Colts' franchise leader in victories. He went 85-27 in the regular season and 7-6 in the playoffs, including the victory over Chicago in the 2007 Super Bowl. "You don't always get to go out on top," Dungy said, "and it's hard to go out on top." Dungy also spent six seasons in Tampa Bay, rejuvenating a moribund franchise and turning it into a perennial Super Bowl contender in the late 1990s and the early part of this decade. He left Tampa with a career record of 54-42 in the regular season becoming the winningest coach in franchise history there, too, and got the Buccaneers to the NFC title game in 1999. He's the only coach in NFL history to produce six straight 12-win seasons and 10 consecutive playoff appearances. Dungy always said he intended to retire by the time he turned 50, but hung around longer because he enjoyed the game and the Colts players. But his family priorities won out this time. His son, Eric, will be a high school senior in the fall, and those close to him thought Dungy wanted to accompany his son on college visits. AP
