Patriot Fans Left at the Altar?

Tom Brady has it all, movie star good-looks, rocket-launcher right arm, $50,000 worth of diamonds on his fingers, 2 Super Bowl MVPs, and if the rumors are true, a very attractive young lady with whom he is now engaged.  Okay, let me start this article by stating that I have nothing against the sacrament of marriage.  I’m “Pro-Marriage” and I love weddings.  Open bar, the “chicken dance”, Aunt Sue and Uncle Frank doing the limbo, the whole shebang.  I hope in the near-future that I get married.  But now I’m speaking as a Patriots’ fan… Tom, please tell me WHY?

Come on Tuna- you should know better

It always amuses me that in this day and age, people can still stick their foot in their mouth.  From AP: Parcells said about quarterbacks coach Sean Payton and defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer. “Mike wants the defense to do well, and Sean, he’s going to have a few … no disrespect for the Orientals, but what we call Jap plays. OK. Surprise things.”

Because Parcells is old school (and old), this should be taken with a grain of salt.  I personally think a lot of things are blown out of proportion, especially when it comes to be PC. Still, it’s amazing that someone as high profile as he is hasn’t gone through a “sensitivity training” course by the Cowboys or the NFL.

Apathy creates the Unthinkable…

Well I’ve officially seen it all. From the pope watching American inner city kids break dance to transexuals allowed to compete in the OLYMPICS, the apocalypse is officially upon us.

The 2003 Nate Newton-Bam Morris Award goes to…

(originally posted June 25, 2003)

Cardinals FB Dennis McKinley.

Apparently, he couldn’t live on a professional football salary so he was smuggling in marijuana from Mexico, storing it in a warehouse and then shipping it out via tractor trailer (not to be confused with the Hornet’s forward) to major cities in the United States. McKinley was the “mastermind” of a drug smuggling operation. Oh, I’m sorry… allegedly. I love it. You win the athletic lottery and still try to sell drugs? What is his excuse? Just trying to find a way to get out of the ghetto? Was the 1500+ lbs of pot for personal use? (ironic that Cypress Hill’s “legalize” just popped up on my iPod.)

Ummm… no thanks Janet

(originally submitted 1/2/2004)

Being a die hard Eagles fan, I couldn’t bring myself to watch the Super Bowl yesterday. Partly because I was bitter and partly because the whole spectacle of the Super Bowl is rather anti-climatic. However, as I was doing a bit of reading, I was inundated with instant messages about Justin Timberlake ripping the top off of Janet Jackson.

T.O. – Be Our Savior!

If football were like Pretty Woman, well, then we all have lots of problems.  But I can’t help but imagine Terrell Owens walking into the city of Philadelphia to talk to the fans.

Always a Bridesmaid

(originally posted January 19, 2004)

Two years ago, the Eagles almost pulled off a stunning upset at St. Louis. But they weren’t supposed to win that game so, while the fans were disappointed, we knew that this was an improving team. Last year, we were supposed to beat the Bucs at home but got outcoached. It was like a gut shot followed by a kick to the groin. This year, we were believers but last year’s pain numbed us so much that losing to Carolina wasn’t really that painful.

Angels My Ass

(originally posted January 07, 2004)

After the Packers beat Seattle last Sunday, Cris Collingsworth noted that there were angels floating above Lambeau Field. I love how the media will latch on to a story and beat it into the ground. As if sports announcers weren’t in love with Brett Favre already, this “charmed team” bit has them so far up his ass, he’s gonna have to use Colon Blow to get them out.
