Whitney’s family is being extremely private with this whole thing. No public viewing, fine. But why deny a team a request to honor your daughter with a performance that has been seen millions of times and will continue be watched in perpetuity? Odd.

Speaking of the Sixers, the news is not good for Spencer Hawes. He was in a walking boot today and will visit Dr. Richard Ferkel at the Southern California Orthopedic Institute next Thursday, according to Dei Lynam, who I would love to know if she’s bothered by Michael Barkann constantly calling her “Denise.” 

There’s a chance JVR will play tomorrow, according to Sam Carchidi. Perfect, Toronto will be so excited…

Bump it for the Whitney video.

    They want to get PAID! Now the money grabbing is to begin…

  2. As much as I want to think differently, yeah, I’m forced to agree that the Houston family is looking to get paid.

  3. Am I missing something? Doesn’t the NFL own the footage of the National Anthem from the Super Bowl? How would the family get paid for something they don’t own?
