At this point, everyone has heard all those terrifying stories about retired football players’ brains falling apart on them. But years and years of hits add up, and the impacts can stay with you forever. Joe Montana talked to USA Today about what football did to him and it sounds awfully bleak:
Dwight Clark’s “The Catch” is one of the most famous plays in NFL history, and made for one of the most iconic photos ever taken by longtime Sports Illustrated photographer Walter Iooss Jr., one of the industry’s biggest names. Yet for all the immortality conferred in the back of Candlestick Park’s end zone on Jan.…
Thousands crammed Fresno's Save Mart Center yesterday for a motivational seminar advertising appearances from Colin Powell, Rudy Giuliani and Joe Montana. This being Northern California, Montana was the big draw. He no-showed.
Four-and-a-half hours of pregame coverage is about to start on Fox. Water torture for the brain. So, here's a collection of Super Bowl XLV stories that have filtered in over the course of the past few days.
Joe Montana's son has seen Rudy. He knows how this works. First you go to junior college, THEN you try out for Notre Dame.

The professional snoopers at The Smoking Gun have uncovered their latest oddball lawsuit between Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Montana and his ex-wife, Kim Moses, pertaining to the auction sale of some personal items from his college days including a photo I.D. and sappy love letters (one on a Ziggy card).
The legendary Joe Montana has to be a little antsy this weekend. The 49ers don't get an early first round draft pick. He's got people covering his shift at his diner. And if Tom Brady wins a fourth Super Bowl ring and third Super Bowl MVP, it'll tie Joe Cool on both counts.

We don't mean to imply that Joe Montana might not always put his son's basketball games ahead of money — or even that his PR team might come up with the most family-friendly excuse (one the NFL still hasn't endorsed) possible once he skipped out on an event because he wasn't paid enough — but we were looking around…
