DeSean Jackson and the not-so-simple life

Monday, June 17, 2013, 1:33 PM
I got a lot of interesting responses to my Daily News Weekend story on the screening of the DeSean Jackson documentary, made by DeSean's half-brother Byron, which I thought gave an excellent insight into what made DeSean the person and player he is, for better or worse. Several people, though, tweeted... Read more

I got an email Tuesday night from the NFL Network that included a few quotes from DeSean Jackson, who'd appeared touting the documentary his brother put together, and had been asked about the Eagles' quarterbacking competition. In one breath, DeSean said "I don't know, it's been kind of even," when... Read more

I have a confession to make. I watched the Tony Awards Sunday night rather than Game 2 of the NBA Finals between Miami and San Antonio. I watched them mainly because “Lucky Guy,’’ a play about the late, great New York Daily News columnist, Mike McAlary, with Tom Hanks in the lead... Read more
