Five Spot / Quick hitters on the light side

1. HE'LL FIT RIGHT IN

Jets quarterback Mark Brunnell has been forced to sell his three Rose Bowl rings because he is reportedly $20 million in debt. Sounds like the perfect person to become a new minority partner in the Mets.

2. THE CANDY MAN CAN

Nike is now making Marshawn Lynch Skittles shoes for the Seahawks running back. Naming the shoes after candy brings new meaning to the term "sugar rush."

3. PLAN B

The Giants plan to hand out "All In" towels to fans at Sunday's regular season home game against the Cowboys. And if the Giants lose, well, the fans will just throw in the towel.

4. A MAN WITH DRIVE

Lakers player Andrew Bynum was reportedly pulled over twice by police this week, once for speeding and once for having illegal tail lights. One more NBA suspension, and he might want to look into a career with NASCAR.

5. ROCK-SOLID MOVE

In order to emphasize his motto "Pound the Rock," Raptors coach Dwayne Casey had a 1,300-pound boulder placed in the team's dressing room. He personally picked it out, taking nothing for granite.
