Dwayne Johnson Fast And Furious

Dwayne Johnson Fast And Furious - “Bigger is always better.” These were the first words out of Dwayne Johnson’s mouth as he answered questions from the press about his newest film, "Faster."
While the actor was referencing his own body and the muscle he put on for the film, the idea that bigger is better applies to the entire project as the cast, the car chases, the shootouts, and the overall message of the film is far greater than that of a typical action movie.

In the opening scene, Dwayne Johnson, who plays "Driver," is released from prison after serving a 10 year sentence for his part in a bank robbery which resulted in his brother’s death. Immediately, Johnson races down a deserted road full of pent up determination where he finds a waiting black Chevelle complete with weapons and a list of names and addresses in the glove box.

As Johnson progresses through the names on his list, the deaths of the seemingly unconnected victims attract the attention of frail heroin-using veteran “Cop,” Billy Bob Thornton, and an assassin known only as “Killer” played by young British actor Oliver Jackson-Cohen. Completely driven by his goal to avenge his brother’s death, Johnson seems unconcerned that he himself is being followed, but the added pressure definitely presses him to be faster lest his ultimate goal escape him.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, GatorUpdates.com and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
