Now, I Ain't Sayin' She a Gold Digger. . .

But she ain't messin' with no broke. . .well, you know. . .

A federal judge ruled Thursday that Korey Stringer's widow can proceed with her negligence lawsuit against the NFL and equipment maker Riddell Inc. over his heatstroke death.

Kelci Stringer sued the league and Riddell following her husband's death in 2001, claiming the NFL hadn't done enough to insure that equipment used by players protected them from injuries or deaths caused by heat-related illnesses.

Seriously, what does Mrs. Stringer want, exactly?  Does she want the helmets with the cup holders on the sides so that players can mount a couple of cans of be. . .Pepsi on their helmets?

What happened to Korey Stringer was tragic. . .this is something we can all agree on.  But for crying out loud, just let the man die already.  I'd say that this whole series of lawsuits is ridiculous, but we passed ridiculous about three exits back.  Now it's just sad.
