Give some pseudo-celebrity their fifteen minutes of fame and I can guarantee you that you’ll end up being bored shi_less with whatever they’ve got to say on any variety of subjects. And more often than not they’ll either be hawking their book or the possibility of a reality show. Where the f_ck has quality television gone nowadays ? I know there’s meant to be an economic downturn and all that. But hell, can’t the Hollywood writers, producers and broadcast outlets come up with something more imaginative than the putrid crap that they’re now putting out on television ? The only safe haven at present might just be the cable outlets. Save for the exception of anything produced by the questionable tastes of Ryan Seacrest.
Hey Richard , I to am appalled that you’re a parent ! But then again
you’re as dumb as you look ! At least you weren’t pimpin’ the kid out for sex. Or will that be your next attempt at glory ? And your poor wife and kids have to be subjected to your vain attempt at notoriety,fame and fortune. Thankfully, Wolf Blitzer’s interview opened up this can of worms and showed us all the underbelly of a society and particular a familial environment gone amok. You need a license to get married. But somehow one can’t prevail upon certain individuals not to have kids and then to try and live through them vicariously.
And of late, the public has had their fill of individuals out there seeking their moment of fame and fortune. From the Heene family in Colorado with their air balloon fiasco. Is it me or should that couple be placed inside of a lion’s cage and their fate should be left to that of the occupant ? Did it not occur to Richard and Mayumi Heene that in trying to create the subterfuge, that their son had been carried off in an air balloon, that once it was clear that their child wasn’t inside the capsule the authorities would question the veracity of their claims ? Parenting 101 – don’t lie to law enforcement or the press at any costs, as in the end you’re bound to be found out.
The ubiquitous Carrie Prejean, as stupid as she looks and wholeheartedly supports the stereotype that blondes are as dumb as they appear to be. Conservative in her beliefs, Prejean is then flabbergasted when we the public, find out that she’s made several sex tapes, with her indulged in sexual acts with multiple partners. And we’re to believe that this female embodies her self avowed beliefs ? What a joke !
Of late the two most annoying individuals who’ve come within our midst, have got to be Carrie Prejean and Sarah Palin.The latter , who’s of the opinion that she can make a difference as a spokesperson for the conservative’s point of view on a wide variety of topics. Here’s a person who basically obfuscated her responsibilities to the electorate in the state of Alaska, by not fulfilling her obligation as that state’s governor. Meanwhile,there’s a book to be hawked, public appearances to be made across the country. And blame to be apportioned elsewhere for her own sheer naivete’ and complete lack of intelligence. Add to that , we’ve still got that endless trite saga of Jon & Kate Gossellin. And you can well understand why the world feels aggrieved with the plight of not only television at present but also the world of the print media.Our only respite may well be, what we can attain from the world of sports. And as of late,that’s not necessarily been a good thing at all.
Ah ! The NFL weekend , where we were meant to see the big boys of the league separate themselves from the pack. The game between the Indianapolis Colts and the New England Patriots certainly didn’t disappoint. And if anything, it lived up to all of the perceived hyped that we’ve come to expect from these two colossuses of the NFL. And with the game’s two best quarterbacks holding center stage , in Tom Brady and Peyton Manning. Well, the stage was set for a Sunday night extravaganza. We should be reminded that these two teams are the winningest NFL franchises of this decade.
I’m sure that there are those out there who find Hung just as hilarious as watching the Oakland Raiders. I’m sure that the likes of Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson would welcome the Raiders auditioning for their reality show. They’d be equally as abysmal as Hung was, with his particular appearance. What modicum of talent that the Raiders have ,is wasted. And I for one, am sure that players with the abilities of Michael Bush and Darren McFadden must wish they’d been drafted by someone else, other than the Oakland Raiders. Or quite possibly were they still eligible, they’d have remained in college ?
And as enjoyable as some games were. One had the feeling that there would be one or two clunkers amongst the bunch. Can we now all agree, that the Oakland Raiders‘ quarterback, JaMarcus Russell is not cut out to be a quarterback in the NFL ? Much like, Paris Hilton has about much as credence to be named the US Ambassador to the United Nations. For want of a better analogy, the less seen of both, the better off the world would be ! Anyone with the undoubted privilege of witnessing the diatribe served by this Tom Cable coached team , has got to be wondering how the hell can he continue to name Russell as the team’s starter ? Watching Russell lead this team is akin to being impaled on a spike, after enduring Chinese water torture. If it can get any worse under Cable and the Raiders,then the fate being suffered by the long time Raiders’ fans , just simply isn’t worth it anymore! I don’t know which was more embarrassing , the Oakland Raiders losing ? Or the fact that the Oakland Raiders lost to the lowly Kansas City Chiefs 16-10. That was a real bravura performance by both teams in terms of their offensive output. It ranks up there with William Hung‘s performance on American Idol, in terms of its sheer competency ! Or should that be incompetency ? I’ll let you be the judge of that !
There has to be something wrong , right ? Weren’t the Denver Broncos meant to be running away with the AFC West division ? Or does it appear to be that Josh McDaniels has been doing it all with smoking mirrors ? The Broncos having been sticking with the script as they’ve now succumbed to their third straight loss and now sit tied atop of the division ,alongside the fast streaking San Diego Chargers (6-3). And this is a Broncos’ team that should indeed be worried. If the wheels on this particular vehicle has suddenly become stuck whereby they can’t gain any traction over the rest of their rivals within the division. Then,their season could come to a cursory and abrupt end , from the one that had started out
with such a great deal of promise. The Broncos’ 27-17 loss to the Washington Redskins may well have been the surprise result of the day, in the NFL.
And if as such, McDaniels is said to be consulting with either David Copperfield , David Blaine or quite possibly Penn & Teller. Well, now is the time either to be asking for a refund or more effective lessons from the esteemed illusionists in question. One way or another , seemingly a fourth consecutive loss would prove to be crushing blow for this team. Now much of the blame could be placed squarely on the shoulders of the team’s backup quarterback, Chris Simms. He performed about as adroitly, as a circus trying to walk a tightrope. To suggest Simms was rusty, would be an understatement. But even if he were given an assist with some WD-40 as a lubricant , I sincerely doubt that it would’ve made a blind bit of difference in the team’s somewhat lackluster display. This result if anything,might just give Jim Zorn a stay of execution from the impending chopping block. But that no doubt would be predicated upon the willingness of GM, Vinny Cerrato to rethink his options at this juncture. And at present the scenario looks extremely grim for Zorn. As it’s looking rather unlikely that he’ll be returning as the coach of the Redskins next season. At least for now, the Washington Redskins’ fans have this victory to provide them with some sort of solace, from what has been something of a moribund season, so far.
OK , so now we know that NFL officials are above reproach ? And can Shannon Sharpe please shut the fu_k up ! Since when were you ever concerned about the integrity of the NFL and the perception of fairness within the game ? You bitched and whined , berated the officiating just as much as anyone when you were in a Broncos’ and a Ravens’ uniform. And now you’re upset that the NFL didn’t penalize Chad Ochocinco with a much stiffer penalty in what was meant to be a joke ? When the player stated that he’d offer the officials $1-00 to actually be impartial on the field of play. Now don’t get me wrong, while it was meant to be a joke. I do believe that the NFL handled the situation appropriately!
In the NFL it’s extremely hard to successfully defend a Superbowl title. And the fact that it hasn’t since SB XXXVIII and SB XXXIX by the New England Patriots in the 2003-04 and the 2005-06 seasons. It just goes to show how difficult this endeavor really is. And for the reigning Super Bowl champions,the Pittsburgh Steelers, that scenario is looking somewhat shaky at this present moment in time. Sunday’s game against their divisional rivals in the AFC North, the Cincinnati Bengals. A game which lived up to all of the perceived hype.
It’d be remiss to the suggest however, that with the Steerlers’ loss to their AFC North rivals , that they won’t be in the thick of things, once the playoffs comes around. But in some respects,the Steelers may well have played themselves into a situation that they could’ve avoided, had they played with a great deal more intensity. The allowed the Benals’ stifling defense to negate their running game. And the resultant 18-12 loss to the now, resurgent Bengals. Well, it would now suggest that this Marvin Lewis’ coached team is back to where many had envisaged that they ought to have been. And if you thought that Carson Palmer and Chad Ochocinco were the only reasons behind the team’s resurgence. Then, think again ! Who knew that Cedric Bensoncould play with such un-abandoned passion ? Never mind that Benson was seen as a malcontent and cast off from the Chicago Bears. He’s been one of the primary reasons that this team is now seen as a real threat in the AFC and with the presence of a defense that’s as now as fierce as they come. Anyone who writes this team off as just a regular season fad. Well, they’re doing so at their peril !
Well, my New England Patriots played their hearts out but yet once again when you throw a dog a bone and you’re not liable to be able to retrieve it. Much as the same way, an idiot would want to play Russian roulette with more than one bullet in the chamber of the revolver. You know that the outcome won’t be good. You will always end up paying the price of making a stupid mistake. Or in the case of Bill Belchick, an asinine last minute gamble.
Watching Manning and Brady trying to out-duel each other , is like watching to professional gunslingers make that one last attempt to prove that one is better than the other. These two players between them. with multiple MVP awards in the Superbowl as well as the NFL regular season. In essence, they sit atop of the pecking order when it comes to who may well be the pre-eminent player at the position in the NFL. All due respect to Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints. But until you’ve got that Superbowl win notched on your belt , you’re essentially out of the conversation. The regular season is all well and good but it’s now how you arrive at the dance. It’s how you perform at the the dance and who you got to make out with. And as of yet, Drew hasn’t received an invite, nor has he got the chance to make out with the best looking chic’ in the hall. Need one say anymore on the subject ?
The game itself pit two of the better teams within the NFL and in terms of sheer talent on display. Well, their respective rosters spoke for themselves. And as intriguing as it now may seem , it’s just come to my attention how much rebuilding has been done by both organizations in terms of their teams. Both New England and Indianapolis have rebuilt around youth ,experience and with just a smattering of veteran experience and leadership.
And though at the end of the day , being an avowed Pats’ fans. To say that I’m not disappointed with their 35-34 loss to the hands of the Colts, would be an understatement. But at the same time, I know that this team will most definitely be in the thick of things,come the postseason. And hopefully the pragmatist in me, can’t see Belichick making a similar sort of mistake again in the waning moments of a game. Especially, one that the team had well within its grasp and should’ve won.
Well, unlike Carrie Prejean, I’ve not made a sex tape. However, I do participate in having copious amounts of sex on a much needed basis. It’s the only thing that I thoroughly enjoy doing , next to opining about sports. So what’s your excuse ?
