Carrie Prejean Says I Don’t Want To Talk About It !

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 ?

I Bitch Slapped Your Mama And She Enjoyed It, So Get Over It ……..

Well last night proved to be something of an eye opener as the two best teams in the AFC West faced off against one another in a divisional match up. The Denver Broncos (6-0) squared off against the San Diego Chargerss (2-3) in a game that would tell us a great deal about both teams and the direction they were heading in. In the NFL this season so far, we’ve seen a great deal to surprise us and a great deal that we’ve all found to be rather disturbing , to say the very least.

Chargers'  quarterback   Philip  Rivers (17)   is  about to  be  sacked  by  Broncos'  line  backer   D J Williams     in  last   night's  game   played   Qualcomm  Stadium  in  San  Diego   ,  California.   The  Chargers   would   go  on  to  lose  the  game  to  the  Broncos  34-23   ,  with  the  Broncos  remaining  unbeaten  within  the  league.       picture  appears  courtesy of   ap/photo/  Denis  Poroy   ..................

Last night in some ways proved to be sobering but if you happened to be Chargers’ fan. Then I’d have to say that you can’t have been too pleased by what you saw from this Norv Turner coached team. The San Diego Chargers while showing some resiliency were never truly in this game. They were outshone by Josh McDaniels’ team and the way they applied themselves to the task at hand. And with the notable play of Broncos’ players Kyle Orton, Brian Dawkins, Brandon Marshall, Elvis Dumervil and Eddie Royal . One could see why this was going to be an extremely torturous night for the San Diego Chargers.

Broncos'  punt  and  kick   returner   Eddie  Royal  on  his  way  to  a  touchdown   against the   San  Diego  Chargers   in  last  night's  game.  It   would   be  one  of  two   touchdowns  scored  by the  player.   He   scored   a   TD   on  a  kick off  return   and  then  another   on  a  punt   return.  Royal   would   join  the   select  few  of  only   11  players  to  have   achieved  a similar    feat  in  an   NFL  game.      picture  appears   courtesy  of    ap/photo/ Richard  Haskill   .................................

It’s been said that the Broncos’ strength has been its defensive line . But I’d also state that their offense is not something that ought to be overlooked. As they’ve a passing attack that is as good any other elite team within the NFL . And their run offense is not as bereft talent as some might believe. Not when you’ve got a willing young rookie in Knowshon Moreno to play alongside such seasoned veterans as Correll Buckhalter and LaMont Jordan . But this wasn’t solely about the individuals mentioned as it was more to do with a team effort , more than anything else. The Broncos systematically had their way with the Chargers and they were made to pay for their lax play several times over.

The San Diego Chargers for their part seemed initially up to the task. But the errant play and missed tackles proved to be costly. But what was even more disturbing was the lack of presence in the play of Chargers’ linebacker Shawne Merriman He’s said to be the glue that holds this defensive line together. Well based on last night’s evidence, I’d say that Merriman and the rest of that defensive line ought to be due for the glue factory. They’ve moved with all the adeptness of a three legged horse that was due to be euthanized. There seemed to be no urgency in their play. And what became more apparent was that once the Broncos attained a lead that they would never relinquish. The more the Chargers’ defense and the rest of the team seemed to give up hope. The more inevitable it became the game was was beyond their reach.

I don’t know whether or not this is a reflection of the coaching of Norv Turner. But most definitely this team has now lost focus and is most definitely bereft of leadership on and off the field. It certainly isn’t now coming from either the team’s quarterback Philip Rivers , nor is it coming from their talented running back LaDainian Tomlinson. The latter of whom, was replaced late in the game because in Turner’s eyes, he wasn’t productive enough. The player showed his displeasure by strolling the sidelines and being vocal about being replaced in the game by teammate, Darren Sproles.

At (2-3) , the San Diego Chargers now face the daunting task that they have to turn their season around rather quickly , if they’re retain any semblance of respect , to it. They were viewed as the prohibitive and presumptive favorites to win their division. Given the fact, that other teams within the division were in some disarray. But who could’ve foreseen that the Denver Broncos would be the surprise team of the league , within the NFL ? Never mind the fact that the Kansas City Chiefs and Oakland Raiders , still seem to be mired in mediocrity, in terms of their on field presence and play ! But these are the things that makes the NFL so appealing but yet at the same time so appalling . But that would be especially true of the AFC West, which may well be the worst division in all of the NFL ?

Now with the resultant loss to the Broncos 34-23 and the fact that, the Chargers are now left in an untenable position within the division. It has to be said that the team and in particular its manager Norv Turner and GM, A . J. Smith face some very pressing issues concerning the team’s morale and overall the shape of its roster . With 4:00 p.m today being the NFL trade deadline , it remains to be seen whether or not the Chargers will be amongst the movers and shakers making a change in their team’s personnel. One way or another, something needs to be done with regard to the team. It might not be what their fans had hoped to see at this juncture but at the same time they’ve been somewhat presumptuous in thinking that they would have the division all to themselves. Little did they know that they’d be bitch slapped about like a woman of ill repute. And when it’s all said and done it looks as of based upon last night’s evidence. They may well have enjoyed that can of a_s whupping bestowed upon by the Broncos , just a little too much for their fans’ own liking. I mean it was characterized in the players’ demeanor after the game. They merely shrugged it off as if it were just another day at the office. Seemingly, unperturbed as to what it may well have meant to their season.

Suffice to say that’s only to be expected from a Chargers’ team that has been so full of itself over the last few years. They’ve yet to prove to the rest of the league and fans around the NFL that they’re as good as they make themselves out to be. ‘nough said !

The $ 1 Billion White Elephant In The Room , To Be More Precise Sitting In Arlington Texas

He may well be the most despised owner in all of the NFL. But the Dallas Cowboys’ Jerry Jones is the consummate showman. Anything that he deems fit and appropriate that’ll place his name and more to the point that of his Dallas Cowboys in the limelight. Then as far as he’s concerned the rest of the whole world can go to hell. And that means if he’ll fall afoul of the NFL. In Jerry’s world …….it’s his way or the damn highway . Make no mistakes about it whatsoever. As that’s the way he treat his peers and subordinates.

With the gargantuan billion dollar stadium having been opened up to much public debate and a certain amount of controversy. I can only think to myself wouldn’t it be of even greater benefit to Jones and the Cowboys’ fans if they actually had a worthwhile on-field product that their fans could laud over ? Instead they’ve been served up a trite piece of garbage and with a quarterback whose backbone may well be as yellow as any, as they come. Much has been made of the ‘special talents’ of Tony Romo . But until he’s able to lead this team with authority , he’ll be lauded for his known association with the likes of Carrie Underwood and Jessica Simpson , respectively. And when that essentially has become the pinnacle of your notoriety within the NFL. Then you can only but assume the only way to go , is essentially ….. up from there .

In yesterday’s showdown with the AFC West division leading Denver Broncos (4-0) . The Cowboys essentially showed us all on national television that they’ve no stomach for a fight , when they’re called upon or even placed in a situation of adversity. If anything this team seems to mirror the gullible hokum persona of its coach Wade Phillips . And for the coach who has become about as eloquent as an inebriated drunk when questioned as to what ails this team. It’s now clear for all to see that the franchise and ownership are clearly at a crossroads. We can no longer continue to make excuses for a team that repeatedly comes up short and for want of a better a word just under-performs. And what of Jones you might say ? Well Jerry would have you believe that he’s got everything under control and there’s nothing at all to worry about.

As alluded to earlier the events that took place between the Cowboys and Broncos . Wherein the Denver Broncos and their stifling defense upended the Dallas Cowboys 17-10 . This has essentially paved the way for what we now know about the two teams. The Broncos under first year coach Josh McDaniels can play football, despite much of the off-season and preseason turmoil that surrounded the team. For the Cowboys , however , they may well be now doing it all with smoking mirrors. I get the impression that illusionist Criss Angel wouldn’t at all be uncomfortable in the presence of the Cowboys. But then again , Criss Angel hasn’t been known to make as any boobs as the Cowboys have been known to , as of late.

The Cowboys we’re led to believe are a potent offensive weapon that Romo ought to be able to make full use of the artillery made available to him. However , when you’ve got a quarterback who at this present moment in time is more liable to shoot himself in the foot. Rather than making use of the weapons that he’s afforded. You can well understand one of the many reasons that the hype surrounding this team is no longer justified. Their running game yesterday was all but obsolete. And their much vaulted defense was nowhere to be seen ,as the Broncos ran the Cowboys’ secondary ragged. Much of what we gleaned from the Broncos’ victory are borne out in the game stats . Romo played a with all the wantoned abandonment of of a cavalier . Whereas, his counterpart Kyle Orton was secure his distribution of the ball amongst his teammates. Romo’s two fumbles and an interception proved to be costly for the Dallas Cowboys. Never-mind the fact that he overthrew his receivers in trying to stretch the field and continually threw into double coverages ,expecting his teammates to pull off the spectacular play.

One quarter of the way into the season and one could suggest that the Cowboys now face an uphill battle within the NFC East. And with the likes of the Philadelphia Eagles (2-2) , New York Giants (4-0) and Washington Redskins (2-2) all seemingly finding their footing. It’s self evident than they can ill afford anymore major slip ups as the season progresses. Much of more of the same and we might as well write off the team for all that it’s worth. And judging by the billion dollars spent on the edifice in Arlington Texas. What price would say that the Cowboys as a team is now said to be worth ? Do bear in mind that their presence in the postseason has been limited but one playoff win in the last decade. Not much to be proud given the team’s history and legacy we’re led to believe.

Hype is one thing but being over-hyped just isn’t worth it, much like that $1 billion white elephant that has been constructed there in Arlington , Texas to begin with. So what price are you prepared to pay or even offer for the privilege of owning the Dallas Cowboys ? Or perhaps like the vast majority of us you’d rather just see this franchise go up in flames ?
