Fun & games with Faulk
We've just left Campanelli Field in Brockton, home of the Brockton Rox, where Kevin Faulk is holding his second annual Celebrity Softball game to raise funds for the United Way.
More than two dozen of his teammates lent their support, making for a crowded field since all of the members of a team played defense together.
Jarvis Green served as umpire.
Randy "Griffey" Moss - as he requested his name be for the night - was the star attraction for the crowd, though Matt Cassel may have gained some fans with his bootie shaking dance-off win over Kelley Washington.
Faulk felt that the high turnout was a sign of the respect his teammates have for him; assistant strength coach Harold Nash and New England legend Doug Flutie took part as well.
He was also pleasantly surprised to see a full parking lot at the stadium; Rox officials said fans began lining up at the gates at 4:30 p.m., 90 minutes before they opened.
"It's turned out to be a great event," Faulk said.

Extended Belichick interview available online
CBS News has posted an extended version of reporter Armen Keteyian's Friday interview with Pats coach Bill Belichick. The nearly 15-minute video gives more of Belichick's comments and explanations than the three-minute report on last night's CBS Evening News.
As we suspected last night watching the televised package, it was highly edited and clips from here and there were patched together. Belichick speaks in great detail about Walsh, and says that "more than one person" had told him that Walsh claimed to have taped the Rams' walkthrough before Super Bowl XXXVI, and "now that story has changed. It seems like he has an agenda, I'm not really sure...what the agenda is. He has a way of embellishing stories, and that continues to be the case."

Two GOP members of Judiciary Committee 'don't see a need' for Senate investigation of Spygate
The chance of a Senate investigation into Spygate -- which Sen. Arlen Specter, R-Pa., hinted at in his news conference Wednesday -- appear to be remote after two members of Specter's own party on the Judiciary Committee said they don't think Congress should get involved in the scandal.
The Washington Post reported Saturday that Republicans Jon Kyl of Arizona and Lindsey O. Graham of South Carolina both said the National Football League is capable of policing itself.
Kyle told the Post "there are far better matters for our time." And Graham said: "I don't believe there's much sentiment that we should get involved. If there's a groundswell of support for us getting involved in this football escapade, it is news to me."
