It's the weekend and the weather is beautiful, so no time to blog properly.

Here are some headlines for weekend reading material with a few quotes.

Tony Romo has some advice for the kids.

"People sometimes today are predominantly putting their kids into one sport," said Romo, who took the first-round lead into the 20th annual American Century Celebrity Golf Championship at Lake Tahoe on Saturday.

"Age 10, they're going to do one thing the rest of their life. I have a hard time with that because, shoot, I was like a basketball player as a kid. I would have just concentrated on one sport, soccer or something," he told reporters after shooting a 3-under-par 69 on Friday.

"I never would have been able to do what I'm lucky enough to do — play football," he said.

Romo opines on the link between golfing and playing football.

" I use the tools that you get mentally on the (golf) course for football," Romo said.

"Anytime you're in a pressure situation or something happens where you have to rely on your mental strength or discipline or all of a sudden you get nervous, blood starts racing, heart starts going, the more you're in those situations the better off you're going to be," he said.

The sticky area in a new deal with DeMarcus Ware, according to Len Pasquarelli.

The dollars aside, Dallas officials and Ware disagree pretty strongly over the length of the contract. Ware, of course, wants a shorter term, which will get him back to the bargaining table while still in his prime. Not surprisingly, Dallas prefers a longer contract, one for six or seven years.

Troy Aikman is being inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. Aikman also did some charity work at a hospital and made a funny:

"I'm one of the old guys," Aikman said, who finished at UCLA in 1988 and ended his NFL career with the Dallas Cowboys in 2000. "I tell the kids [at the hospital] I know (current Cowboys quarterback) Tony Romo and they get excited."

Rick Gosselin argues against the need for a 'star' receiver in today's NFL.
