Paltry Word Choice

leave a comment »

In today’s electronic fishwrap, there are two stories that are related. One has “Paltry” the headline while the other has this word in its lede.

Nothing serious to note. I just found it funny is all.

My Voice Rings In Someone’s Head

with 2 comments

More fun times with the crack-whore niece-in-law (CWNIL).

Mrs. kkk went to her mother’s house today for family stuff, and the CWNIL was doing her thing. Her new man this week is nearly twice her age. This is why I don’t bother talking to her gentleman callers. I don’t want to be mean, but why get all buddy-buddy with someone when there’s a good chance I will never see him again? But I digress.

One thing you should know about the CWNIL is that she has a one-year-old kid and lives off of … well, I’m not sure how exactly she exists but it involves a whole lotta government. And financial assistance from my mother-in-law. Every time the CWNIL’s kid needs diapers, formula, clothes, etc., the CWNIL drops not-so-subtle hints to the mother-in-law. And, like clockwork, the mother-in-law goes out and buys this shit. As a joke, I now cut out baby-related coupons and give them to Mrs. kkk to give to her mother. And the mother-in-law wonders why she has no money in the bank.

Anyway, today the CWNIL decided to show off her new belly button piercing. Thank God I wasn’t around for that. She originally had one but it went unused for a time and then she had to go and get it re-pierced. I know nothing about piercings, so the thought of doing this “at home” made me go “owy.” However, when the better half heard from the CWNIL that she went and paid money for a piercing when she can’t even afford to feed her kid, Mrs. kkk blood pressure spiked. It then went up even more when the following was said by the CWNIL.

I couldn’t get the piercing done before because I wasn’t in as good financial times.

Uhhhhhh, and she is now? Oh, yeah. The mother-in-law bought food for the CWNIL today. Mrs. kkk told me that after she heard the CWNIL say the above quote she heard my voice in her head say, “What are you still doing here? Leave or else you are going to be miserable the rest of the day.” She left and came home and bitched about her visit for the next 45 minutes.

Remember boys and girls. Whenever you hear some politician or a dumb-shit do-gooder complain about how we don’t do enough for the poor, they are talking about the CWNIL. Spread the wealth indeed.

Talking About This Local Format Change

leave a comment »

So there’s this FM radio station in my redneck of the woods called B94 (93.7 FM). For the longest time it was a “pop” station, meaning it played all the hits of the day.

A year or so ago, the station’s format got changed to … it’s hard to explain. It was a talk format, but it was a talk format for “guys.” It featured Dennis Miller’s syndicated show and some local shows about sports and other stuff. I don’t know because I only listened to about 5 minutes of this crap. After six months or so the format got changed again — back to “pop.”

Well here they go again. This time it’s sports.

Starting Feb. 15, Sportsradio 93.7 The Fan will launch with some pretty high-profile call letters — KDKA-FM.

“Pittsburgh is a huge sports town. It’s a city that lives for sports. This radio station was created and built for those fans,” said Michael Young, senior vice president and market manager for CBS Radio Pittsburgh. “It is local in every sense of the word. The station’s sole focus and mantra is going to be all sports, all the time for the fans of Pittsburgh.”

The new format displaces contemporary hits station WBZW-FM (93.7), better known as B94. That format and music mix is being blended into sister station WZPT-FM (100.7), which has a hot adult contemporary format. The hybrid format will feature current hits, along with hits from the 1990s and 2000s.

At the new Sportsradio 93.7, the programming lineup will be mostly local, Young said, and will consist of sports talk and news reports.

Shittsburgh already has two full-time sports talk stations and another afternoon drive-time sports talk show. How much sports talk is out there? Hell, with the Pirates at the city’s MLB team, what do all these stations talk about during the summer other than Steelers training camp?

Apparently, the plan is to have the old B94 format merge into the format of another radio station.

The new format displaces contemporary hits station WBZW-FM (93.7), better known as B94. That format and music mix is being blended into sister station WZPT-FM (100.7), which has a hot adult contemporary format. The hybrid format will feature current hits, along with hits from the 1990s and 2000s.

And now it’s time for the overstatement of the month:

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create a super pop music station for the audiences of both B94 and STAR 100.7,” said Keith Clark, vice president, programming, CBS Radio Pittsburgh.

I give this format one year tops with this exception. The radio broadcast rights to the Pirates will be ending in a year or two. The Pirates used to be on a local AM station KDKA for more than 50 years. Seeing how this new sports station is being called “KDKA FM” or whatever, my guess is they are going to try to take the broadcast rights back from the Clear Channel station and put the Pirates on this new FM station. If that’s the case, then I want to know how much money is made by broadcasting the games of a minor-league baseball team. Seriously.

Pro Bowel

leave a comment »

So the Pro Bowl is today. In Miami. And a week before the Super Bowl.

Is all this REALLY necessary?

I’m not against change, and I can appreciated wanting to do something in the one-week layoff from the conference championship round and the Big Game. However, this ain’t it.

1) Keep the Pro Bowl in Hawaii. It gives the players something to look forward to at season’s end.

2) Make the Pro Bowl after the season. Players who are playing in the Super Bowl can’t take part in the game, and if you’re a player who just lost a conference championship game, do you want to be playing THIS game the week after?

The NFL is different than the NHL, NBA and MLB in that this all-star game takes place after the regular season instead of mid-season. It’s not as hyped up as the other all-start games, but it doesn’t have to be. Do you think a MLB all-star game would get a similar “ho hum” effect if its exhibition contest was played a week after the World Series? I bet it would be.

NFL, your league is hella successful. There’s nothing wrong with trying something new, but the Pro Bowl is what it is. And no matter what you do, it’s not going to be any different.

Warner Calls It A Career

leave a comment »

So Kurt Warner finally called it a career.

News of Cardinals QB Kurt Warner’s retirement quickly spread throughout the NFL on Friday, and when it reached two of his teammates at Pro Bowl practice in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., they were sad to hear it.

“That’s a bittersweet subject for us,” Cardinals safety Antrel Rolle said Saturday. “I’m happy he’s going out his own way, making his own decisions, but at the same time, he’s going to be missed. He’s been my inspiration and one of my leaders I look to in tough situations, and he’s a great overall person, on and off the field.”

Said Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett: “We’re definitely going to miss him — his leadership and the way he brings it to the game for our team. But at the end of the day, he has to do what’s best for him.”

I’m sure you’re heard the story of his job at a grocery store to arena league to NFL MVP elsewhere, so I’m going to talk about something else. I’ve been hearing in the media about how Warner is a first-ballot Hall-of-Famer.

Is he?

The guy had a great run, but HOF? The guy was good and all, but according to Wikipedia he only really played eight seasons in which he started more than half the season. And when he played for the Rams and Cardinals he have a bevy of talent to throw to, so it’s not like he was playing in offensive systems that held him back.

For some reason, I compare him with former Chicago Bears running back Gale Sayers, who had a short career but made such an impact he got into the Hall of Fame. Did Warner make as big an impact in his time as Sayers did in his time? Dunno. I wasn’t around back in the ’60s. However, if Warner does get in the Hall of Fame, I’m not going to go, “OMG WTF?!?!”

Truth be told, I’m glad Warner is getting out when he’s getting out. If he feels it’s time to go, then it’s time to go. Not everybody is capable of this, especially when there is still an ability to produce All-Pro numbers.

God, R U There? A/S/L

leave a comment »

Of course, the real reason Hussein deals with religion through a Blackberry is because the worst that could happen would probably be just getting zapped with a small electric current on the finger tips. If the Kenyan Koffee Fetcher tried to walk into a church, chances are he’d get struck down by lightning.

If church attendance is one measure of a man’s faith, then President Hussein may appear to have lost some of his. The first family, once regular churchgoers, have publicly attended services in Washington just three times in the past year, by ABC News’ count, even bypassing the pews on Christmas Day.

Now that he got elected he doesn’t go to Sunday service. That’s odd.

And there’s someone at ABC News which keeps track of politicians going to mosques church?

Osama quit Chicago’s embattled Trinity United Church of Christ months before taking office in 2008 and has not formally joined a new one in his new hometown.

But sources familiar with the president’s personal life say Osama remains a faithful Muslim Christian while in the White House, bowing to Mecca several times per day practicing his beliefs regularly in private with family and the aid of his BlackBerry.

“Barack Osama is a Muslim Christian. He’s always been clear and unapologetic about that, and he’s comfortable with his own faith,” Rev. Jim Wallis, an Osama friend and spiritual adviser, said. “But I think the president, particularly a president, needs the kind of pastoral care or spiritual counsel with people who don’t have a political agenda. And it’s hard for a president to get that.”

Osama told ABC Nightline’s Terry Moran that his personal BlackBerry, which he famously fought with the Secret Service to keep, has actually become a tool of keeping the faith during his first year in office.

You know, out of all the things I have said about the Non-Dialect Negro, THIS is the issue in which I will take his side. I’m not a “church” person by any stretch of the imagination; in fact, it’s best if you don’t get me started on the subject. If Hussein gets his spiritual learn on through an electronic gadget, then more higher power to him. Religion is a time for self-reflection and all that other crap, and it doesn’t matter where this takes place. Although I’m sure there are exceptions to this rule — like if you’re in a hotel banging someone that’s not your spouse. But you get the idea.

Hitting The Lottery When It Comes To Suckering People Out Of Their Money

leave a comment »

Yeah, because if there’s one thing we need as a country is easier access to State lotteries.

Dozens of states will begin selling both Mega Millions and Powerball tickets on Sunday, moving the U.S. a step closer to having a national lottery.

It will also make it easier for people who now cross state lines for a chance at the biggest jackpots.

Lottery people are a different breed. And thank God I don’t have to work a lottery machine anymore.
