Not everyone is upset with the Detroit Lions’ Ndamukong Suh these days. The Bears’ Amobi Okoye joined Suh -- who was ejected from Thursday’s game against the Green Bay Packers for stomping on an opposing player -- during his night out in Chicago Friday.

Suh and Okoye had dinner at Chicago Cut Steakhouse and ordered the porterhouse steak and the bone-in rib eye steak, respectively.

Afterward, the two defensive tackles were spotted at Paris Club’s upstairs lounge, Studio Paris. The NFL reportedly may force Suh to take anger management classes due to Thursday’s incident, but I hear the Defensive Rookie of the Year was “nothing but nice” to Paris Club staff and patrons.

Heads up: Billy Corgan missed the debut of Resistance Pro on Friday due to the Smashing Pumpkins’ tour in Europe, but he will be on hand when his independent wrestling promotion returns to Excalibur January 13.
