If you’re in Dallas … Hell, if you’re in Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana or New Mexico, GO INSIDE and stay away from the windows. According to The National Bureau of Alarming Statistics there’s a 70% chance of an Cheese Head/Terrible Towel riot [via Y!News]:
Angry fans outside a Cowboys Stadium fence chanted “Let us in,” “Jerry sucks,” and “We want seats” while being denied inside access for Super Bowl XLV on Sunday.
The ticketed fans, estimated between 200-400, were denied entry inside the stadium because temporary seating sections to be installed for the game had not been completed. In the meantime, the NFL has moved the fans to the Party Plaza area – the stadium’s standing room only section.
And Mr. Jones, ya’ll might want to keep your head down for a bit.
Dear Fuckups on the Family,
Please, please, oh please ask ReaLAMEricans to choose between your organization and college sports [via Yahoo! Sports]:
The National Collegiate Athletic Association removed a Focus on the Family banner ad from one of its Web sites this week, NCAA spokesman Bob Williams said Wednesday.
The NCAA made the decision after some of its members … expressed concern that the evangelical group’s stance against gay and lesbian relationships conflicted with the NCAA’s policy of inclusion regardless of sexual orientation, Williams said. Continue reading
So I’m ashamed of my reaction to this story about the Cowboys’ new stadium [via Yahoo!]:
Spending $1.2 billion on a football stadium can get you a lot, but not apparently a good sense of how high to hang 2,100 inch video screens above the field.
At the debut of the new Dallas Cowboys’ stadium last night, Tennessee Titans punter A.J. Trapasso kicked a ball that struck one of the gargantuan high-definition scoreboards that hang over the center of the field.
Whups, guess they forgot that people might actually play football in there. OK, that was the funny part, here’s what I’m ashamed of:
Jerry Jones wasn’t happy with the kick, not so much because he felt that somebody on his engineering team screwed up by placing the video boards too low, but because he seems to think that Trapasso was trying to hit the board on purpose.
My first thought: This dipshit must be a Republican.
Shocking, I know. A dude starts whining like a cat with its dick stuck in a wringer when confronted by the fact that he’s in the midst of some serious and expensive F.A.I.L. and I automatically assume he’s a Republican. Tsk. Tsk.
Really, the fact that my immediate reaction to this dumb putz was absolutely correct is no excuse for such behavior. To make up for my lapse I promise not to laugh uproariously when a kick by David “Ferris” Buehler bounces off the corner and beans Jerbil on the noggin.
This week’s nominee for things that are gettin’ o-l-d [via AssPress]:
“I’m 39 with a lot of sacks to my name.”
Yup. Serial Retiree Brett Favre is unretired once again. I sure didn’t see that coming.
On the one hand, the dude is a year younger than me so I can see why he’s not ready to quit. On the other hand, my job doesn’t involve being repeatedly pounded by unusually large, fast and fit men. Alas…
Ahem! Anyway, it isn’t the not retiring, per se. It’s the retiring and un-retiring and re-retiring again that pisses me off. There’s something prima donna-esque about his antics that kind of sucks the fun out of watching him play.
If I seem a tad to cranky about this, keep in mind that I watched what happened when Jordan tried to coach and then decided to start playing again. For the Washington “Sucktacathon” Wizards no less. It was painful and I think Favre is headed that way.
“It’s going to be good for the team. It’s going to be good for the state. It’s going to be exciting,” a giddy Gov. Tim Pawlenty said after a speech.
Dear God, I hope they don’t let Bachmann near the poor man. He needs to save his stregth!
If Terrell Owens ever wonders if there’s a correlation between his high level dickishness and the fact no team can stand his ass?
I just wondered.
