Give me that 76K ring back!

Given the shortage of actual lockout-related news at this moment, we bring you the story of Cowboys wide receiver Roy Williams, who mailed a $76,000 engagement ring to the woman he wanted to marry and now wants it back because she declined his marriage proposal.

The Odessa American has all the details in this story and it's worth a read, but can I just first say that mailing an engagement ring seems kinda weird. Who does that? Could Williams not wait to give it to her in person? Don't you want to see the woman's reaction?

And who mails a $76,000 ring if you're not absolutely sure the person who's getting it is going to say "Yes"?

The woman in question, Brooke Daniels, is a former Texas beauty pageant queen. Her father told the Texas newspaper that he now has possession of the ring and that -- although he claims Williams originally said he didn't want it back -- that he was going to return it to the wide receiver and avoid a lawsuit.

Strange story, huh? And given all the play this one is getting nationally today on ESPN and other national websites, you can tell it's a slow day in July, when the talk is of engagement rings rather than the Super Bowl kind.

July is the worst month on the sports calendar, unless you are a baseball fan of a team in first place. I'm in that spot for a change (GO TRIBE!!!!), but it's still a super-slow month.

I agree with you that mailing an engagement ring is crazy. What did he do, mail the ring after proposing to her through email????

Did you see Brooke Daniels. Either she is a total airhead and goofy or Williams is nuts all the way around. She's pretty hot.

Blue-eyed and blond do not translate to the bedroom!Boring! As Ben Leroy Franklin said,"when the lights go out, all things are kinda gray."
