At some point, some other current or former player will be accused of doing something wrong, and his story will spawn a variety of blurbs and opinions. Until then, Texans linebacker Brian Cushing’s four-game suspension for violating the league’s steroids policy will continue to dominate the discourse, here and elsewhere.
And here’s the latest. Cushing will conduct a press conference on Thursday at 1:00 p.m. Houston time, which is 2:00 p.m. in the time zone that matters. (Hey, if you Californians, Arizonans, Oregonians, Washingtonians, Nevadans, New Mexcanities, and/or Utes are gonna accuse us of having an East Coast Bias, we might as well act like it.)
The announcement from the team doesn’t say whether he’ll take questions, but we can’t imagine that he’d merely read from a prepared statement in a room full of friends and supporters without answering a single question. I mean, that would be really, really bizarre.
