2011 Dallas Cowboys Calendar Featuring… Ken Hamlin?
I’m thinking that if someone has access to some decent pictures, creating a team calendar can’t be all that hard. The Cowboys have some obvious candidate as featured players, including Pro Bowl players in Andre Gurode, Jason Witten, DeMarcus Ware, Jay Ratliff, and perhaps Mat McBriar. Of course, any calendar would also include Tony Romo, Bradie James, Marion Barber, Miles Austin, and Felix Jones. We could name a bunch of others, including rookies Dez Bryant and Sean Lee.
So I’m at a store in a mall today and looked at the 2011 team calendar, which is also available from Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and several other outlets. Here’s part of the back of this calendar:
Just below Ware’s picture is former safety Ken Hamlin. Yes, that Ken Hamlin.
The publisher of this gem is a company called Perfect Timing – Turner, which also produces calendars from a bunch of other pro teams, along with Notre Dame and Playboy. I double-checked, and neither of the latter calendars features Charlie Weis or the Playmate of the Month from February 1991.
Just in case someone from Perfect Timing – Turner happens to browse fan blogs, please note that the Cowboys released Hamlin last April, and he was also cut by Baltimore two weeks into the 2010 season. But thanks for the laugh. Given what’s happened this year, this is kind of fitting.

Coming off their 10th win of the season on Sunday, could the Steelers be one of your Super Bowl Bets this February?
It sure seems like it, as Pittsburgh ripped apart Cincinnati this past weekend, to improve to 10-3. Despite a broken nose, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger is playing as well as ever, and this remains one of the elite defenses in the league. We’re still a few months from making our official Super Bowl Bets, but it sure does seem like the Steelers could be one of them!
