"And cheers to you, Mr. Robinson..."

We'll stick with the whole pop culture theme we have working today.

The song "Mrs. Robinson," by Simon and Garfunkel, which appeared in the film, "The Graduate," is certainly not about Koren Robinson's mother.

The troubled Green Bay Packers wide receiver -- pictured during happier times in Minnesota -- was sentenced to 90 days in jail Wednesday for violating his probation in a drunken driving case.

How'd he violate his probation? He drove drunk again! Koren, what the fuck are you thinking?

This is really not very smart. Of course, being a pro athlete and all, Mr. Robinson can spend half of his sentence on work-release, according to the judge.

But once you drive drunk, don't you learn your lesson? Not Koren apparently. He must have an extra thick skull to be that careless.

An interesting tidbit: Robinson's lawyer is named John Fox. No, not that one.

Norv Turner Update: The 49ers, coming off of a shutout loss to Kansas City, remarkably are still signing Norv's paychecks.
