Rams' Long Recovering From Knee Surgery

St. Louis Rams offensive tackle Jake Long is recovering from major knee surgery. The "Post-Dispatch" reports he recently had the procedure to repair a torn ACL in his right knee after a torn MCL healed on its own. Long was injured during the Rams' Week 16 win over Tampa Bay and missed the season finale. The four-time Pro Bowler and former number-one pick signed a four-year deal with the Rams last March after five years with the Miami Dolphins.

OFF THE CUFF with Diane Jones

1 week 2 days ago

On Saturday, September 6, our family lost a dear friend to a car accident. Listeners know her as Lexi the Impulse Puppy. It surprised us a bit just how much the loss struck us--a tribute to just how much that dog loved us--and just how much we loved that dog. Dogs are not the same as people, but they certainly tap into the very best of us.
