Jay Z Chicken Restaurant

Jay Z Chicken Restaurant - After amassing a huge fortune last year via record sales, book sales and several key investments, rap and entertainment mogul Jay-Z is winging it — literally.

Just as his "H.A.M." collaboration with Kanye West was dropping on Facebook, news broke that the 41-year-old Brookynite has invested in the Brooklyn-based chicken wing restaurant Buffalo Boss, teaming up with his mother, Gloria, and sister Andrea in the new venture. Keeping things within the family, the fast food joint is currently co-owned by the rapper's cousin Jamar White.

"Yes, it's all true," White told MTV News confirming the news. "Jay supports us in all we do, that's my big cousin right there."

The eatery does more than dole out saucy wings, fries, salads and soft drinks. According to TMZ, Jay-Z and Buffalo Boss recently teamed up to reward exceptional students at a nearby middle school with free eats. (A glance at the Buffalo Boss menu reveals the eatery serves up strictly organic chicken for children and adults looking for healthier options.)

The news that Jigga is investing in a chicken restaurant will come as a mild surprise to some fans as the rapper revealed to Oprah in 2009 that he doesn't eat much in the way of the largely affordable meat as it reminded him of his former poverty.

"We ate a lot of chicken, you know, because chicken's cheap," he said. "We had so much chicken — chicken backs, chicken everything ... to this day, I can only eat small pieces or else I feel funny."

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.
