    Money and awareness for ALS through a Facebook challenge, not quite sure how they work. This is a friendly challenge. You could also, ya know, donate money towards the cause without doing a stupid unfunny stunt but to each their own I guess.

    Good PR and a good way to cool off after practice. We might want to get in on that.

    It's been going on for a long time with the hockey community , not sure where it originated re the sports connection but this has been around a while now.

    Yeah it's a challenge , all the hockey players do it and challenge several teamates or friends. It went to the media too , women's national team has done it , went through the U17 U18 U20 camps too.

    And then he fined Strahan for using a Performance Enhancement Apparel (a sweater). Heard it was for ten weeks.

    Strahan is appealing because he said he was wearing a sweatshirt. Because the league failed to different between a sweater and a sweatshirt the NFLPA feels the suspension should be reduced.

    Welp, looks like more trouble. Said apparel is not made by an NFL Sponsor. A hefty fine has been levied.

    In other news, Ray Rice has been chosen as a celebrity model for Nike's new line of wifebeaters.

    Cool stuff. Put aside the rivalry and enjoy this. I like that Kraft kept us division foes in his mind, and hope we accept the challenge, pass it on, and donate big time!

    It's on you Ross.

    I'm sure they'll look the other way on the 24 hour rule if the team donates a large amount of money. :)

    Really hope we see the whole team get in on this.

    The ALS portion of it started with a 29 year old former BC baseball player who has ALS. It's steam rolled from there.

    He challenged Strahan and Pete Carroll which was a little odd to me but probably overthinking it. Just don't think the commissioner should have close ties with a head coach or even hint it.

    Wow Belichick already participated. If Philbin doesn't do this, he is officially a robot.

    Keep in mind we're not practicing today. So if we're going to do it, it would likely be tomorrow.
