Stockholm Bombing Causes Fury

Stockholm Bombing Causes Fury - The identity of the man suspected of carrying out a suicide blast that injured two people in Stockholm on Saturday has started to emerge, as the quest for answers moved to the London suburb of Luton.

The name of the man suspected by Sweden’s security police Saepo of being the author of two blasts in a shopping neighbourhood of Stockholm over the weekend has appeared in the Swedish and British press, as the investigation into Europe’s latest terrorist scare moves to the northern suburbs of London.

On Saturday, two separate explosions, a car bombing and a suspected suicide blast, rocked a bustling pedestrian quarter of the Swedish capital. The presumed attacker -- identified by an Islamist Web site as Taymour Abdel Wahab – died, and two people were injured in a plot apparently targeting Christmas shoppers.

The Swedish news agency TT, as well as Saepo, received a threatening email referring to Sweden's troops in Afghanistan and controversial cartoons of the prophet Mohammad minutes before the explosions.

According to Olivier Truc, correspondent for French daily Le Monde in Sweden, the man’s identity was quickly published. “He signed the threatening message to the press and police, and he’s also registered as the owner of the car that exploded. It may not be the man who died on Saturday, but the Swedish press quote police sources”, Truc said.

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.

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.
