Sorry about that

While he hasnít tried professional soccer or riding a bull, Panthers tight end Jeremy Shockey found a unique sporting event to try during the lockout.

Shockey put together a team to compete in the Drambuie Pursuit race through the Scottish Highlands, according to Kelley Carter of ESPN.com. His group finished fourth out of ten during a 100 mile race that combines white-water rafting, kayaking, mountain climbing and dune-buggy racing.

The new Panthers player showed some impressive managerial skills overseas. He sat out the mountain climbing because he says he doesnít have health insurance. (Smart.) He also picked three distance runners from Texas to join him on the team. (Smarter.)

As part of the event, Shockey donated $10,000 to the Heath Evans Foundation. Shockey planned to explore his heritage in Ireland for a while once he was done with the race.

He can probably stay past June third if he wants.

"A Veteran is someone who, at one point in his life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America" for an amount of "up to and including my life."

I'll always be glad to hear what Jeremy's up to. I'll always be grateful to him for what he did for our city and our Saints. Still love the guy. 'Right up there with Kyle Turley, in my book.

does he not have health insurance because he's considered high-risk?

I still haven't told my youngest daughter he doesn't play for us anymore. She still pimps around in here Shockey Jersey. She's going to be very sad, I just can't bring myself to break her heart.
