Coming up is Lions v. Saints: The battle of teams whose cities always need a win to lift its respective region’s spirits — New Orleans for Katrina and Detroit for being Detroit.

The winner gets a tax holiday next weekend and loser gets an uptick in its area’s unemployment rate.

New Coach, Same Town

leave a comment »

Great job Sappy Valley in welcoming your new football coach with such open arms.

LaVar Arrington, shown right in his playing days, is as close to an ideal Penn State football lifer as you can find. After leaving for the NFL following his junior year, Arrington later returned to complete his degree and has been a vocal supporter of Penn State football through thick and thin, including the darkest hours and days following the revelations surrounding the Jerry Sandusky scandal. Arrington, who idolized Sandusky, never shied away from speaking out against Sandusky’s alleged acts and came to grips with the fact that Sandusky fooled him.

When Penn State held a candle light vigil on campus days after the Sandusky shock wave ripped through State College and beyond, Arrington was there to speak to the students and to the Penn State family near and far.

“We are Penn State. That will never change,” Arrington said.

That is, of course, unless Penn State hires a coach Arrington does not approve of.

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported Thursday night that Penn State will name New England Patriots offensive coordinator Bill O’Brien as their next head coach, with a formal announcement being made Saturday. the initial reaction from Penn State fans is one of disappointment and confusion for the most part. The Fan Tab rating on Nittany Lions Den plummeted to 1% over night, and Arrington had some of the strongest words to say as word of this potential hire spread.

“I will put my Butkus (Award) in storage. I will put my Alamo Bowl MVP trophy in storage,” Arrington said to Blue White Illustrated, the Rivals.com affiliate covering Penn State. “Jerseys, anything Penn State, in storage. Wherever Tom Bradley goes, that’s the school I will start to put memorabilia up in my home. I’m done. I’m done with Penn State. If they’re done with us, I’m done with them….”

…Arrington is not alone. Former Penn State players such as Brandon Short and D.J. Dozier have spoken out about Penn State’s coaching search and decision-making, with Short saying that not hiring Bradley is like turning their back on the entire Penn State family. Dozier questions why more former Penn State players were not consulted during the search.

“I would venture to say that a lot of guys thought, why not?” Dozier said to Blue White Illustrated. “Why wouldn’t someone ask us? Aren’t we a part of this university? Aren’t we a part of the program? Don’t we care? Don’t we have a little bit of expertise or at least a thought that may spur another thought? I believe to get the right or best answer, you survey the land.

“So, do the guys feel left out and pushed to the side? Well, of course. I think we can all speculate and if we speculate long enough, we’ll figure out that, well, maybe politics are working this one. I would love to see more of a collaborative approach to this process because, again, we’re not trying to say that Penn State is more special than another, but there’s a certain way that we have done things.”

Even though this new guy may not tickle your fancy or touch you in ways the previous administration did, be glad someone outside your incestous cesspit of a town wants to try to lead you to greener pastures. Lord knows why. It may not be fair to purge the entire football coaching staff over the Sandusky incident, but I don’t blame the university in this case.

And for the record, I lived up in State College for 14 months. I know what I speak of when calling that place a dump. To be fair, I’m sure many college towns are like this, (hopefully) minus the child molestation.

Another TLC Show Clone

With this and other programs like “Toddlers & Tiaras,” “Extreme Couponing All-Stars,” “100 Kids and Counting,” “Hoarders” and “Outrageous Kids Parties,” the only thing I’m learning on The Learning Channel is that people are crazy.

I Cloned My Pet is about the extraordinary world of pet cloning and gives a telling snap shot of life in the twenty first century. We explore the world of these pet cloners and find out if they succeed in bringing their beloved pets to life and if the colossal financial sacrifices are worth it.

Never Underestimate The Power Of The Girth Side

leave a comment »

I find your lack of a good cholesterol count … disturbing.

A French fast food chain has gone over to the dark side with its upcoming promotion for a movie tie-in.

France’s restaurant chain “Quick” has launched a “Dark Vador” burger with black buns to coincide with the 3D release, later this year, of Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace.

Although the buns look like they’ve been burnt, they are in fact merely dyed, and have two beef patties with cheese, lettuce and tomato between.

Another burger, titled the “Jedi Burger” bears a vague resemblance to Yoda.

The Star Wars-themed meals will be unleashed in Quick burger chains in March.

If that Jedi Burger is going to resemble Yoda, I hope it’s not green. Might turn off some customers — and attract a health inspector.

Black And Blue

A rapper stealing someone else’s music? Why I never…

A songwriter from the Western Pennsylvania borough of Sharon who goes by the stage name Maxamillion, has filed a federal $2.3 million copyright infringement lawsuit against Wiz Khalifa, claiming Khalifa’s chart-topping hit “Black and Yellow” was derived from his own song “Pink N Yellow.”

Max Gregory Warren filed the suit Dec. 30 in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania court, claiming that he wrote “Pink N Yellow” in 2007 and copyrighted it in February 2008. He is seeking a portion of profits for the song, which went to No. 1 on the charts in February 2011.

Birth-Songs

leave a comment »

So the most recent Facebook chain-letter thing is asking me about the #1 song in America when I was born. Considering I’m 35, this means I’m sure the song is disco-related.

After a quick Wikipedia search, I learned that my song is “Disco Lady” by Johnnie Taylor.

And to think if my parents got busy a few months earlier, I could have been Love Rollercoaster. 😦

But I didn’t want to stop there. I was curious to know what the nation’s top song was when I was conceived. I know it would be next-to-impossible to find out when that actually happened, but for the sake of discussion let’s pretend it took place exactly 9 months earlier from my birth date.

What did I end up with?

Considering my parents split up less than a decade afterward, Captain & Tennille were wrong on this one.

Conservative Straw Men (And Women)

leave a comment »

OK, can we just nominate the Mor(m)on already?

A squeaker of an Iowa victory in hand, Mitt Romney headed Wednesday into the New Hampshire primary — in his own political backyard — insisting that staying power sets him apart from runners-up Rick Santorum and Ron Paul and the rest of the GOP presidential field. He shrugged off the promise of sharper criticism from his rivals.

For months the conservative bloc has been throwing up its candidate du jour for months now hoping one will stick – Bachman, Cain, Perry, Gingrich, etc. Santorum is the current, and last, one. I’m tired of all the coverage and it’s only January.

And while I’m at it, why does Leap Year have to occur during an election year? Like I want another extra day of this crap.
