Why do they call it “road rage”? You’re not angry at the street.

Rally For School-Skipping

leave a comment »

So yesterday there was a group conversation about the following subject. There’s a Steeler pep really that went on Friday in Pittsburgh, and the workplace discussion revolved around should parents take their kids out of school to attend?

This was my response: If kkk Jr. was a good student then taking an afternoon off from school (provided there wasn’t a test or anything major that day) to go to something like this would be one of the “rewards” for him being a good student.

But because kkk Jr. would have my genes, there would be no way in hell he’d be a good student, so all this is moot.

A Twit For Deleting This Comment

leave a comment »

Wow, Matt. Your “CBA” line was funny. No way you should have taken that down. The cover-up is always worse than the crime. What — You think nobody’s going to find out?

Believe me, when you post something online, it’s there for life. And yes, that means I’m in a world of shit myself.

Matt Hasselbeck’s question about Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie was pointed.

“Somebody ask Cromartie if he knows what CBA stands for,” Hasselbeck posted via his Twitter account, a remark he later deleted.

Cromartie’s response got personal: “I will smash ur face in.”

That not-so-social media exchange via Twitter on Thursday stemmed from Cromartie’s repeated public questioning of the leadership of the NFL Players Association this week.

Cromartie, who is scheduled to be a free agent, called union leader DeMaurice Smith a crass name. He used the same term to talk about the owners’ negotiators. He criticized their inability to reach an agreement on a new labor deal and dismissed statements from Baltimore’s Ray Lewis and Arizona’s Darnell Dockett about player solidarity.

On Thursday, Hasselbeck posted on his Twitter account: “Somebody ask Cromartie if he knows what CBA stands for,” referring to the collective bargaining agreement. The agreement that governs the working arrangement in the league will expire March 4. If the union and ownership don’t negotiate a new agreement, the NFL could begin its first work stoppage since 1987.

Super Bowl Songs

leave a comment »

Back in 1985 there was the Bears’ “Superbowl Shuffle.”

Can’t hate on this.

Then there was even the Patriots attempt at a rebuttal.

It’s lame, but I have a soft spot for this one.

But then there was this.

I don’t think I have ever appreciated the Pittsburgh Polka more than I do now.

Depressing List

leave a comment »

Yeah, because things like a region’s economic condition and infrastructure should have equal weight as the number of psychiatrists and how good the local football team performs.

After a more-than-disappointing year and the realization that Cincinnati has only had two winning seasons in the past two decades, Bengals fans feel pretty down in the dumps about the quality of the pro football in the Queen City.

Just how depressed is the city of Cincinnati compared to the rest of the cities in the U.S. with an NFL team? One website compiled a list of the most depressed pro football cities to find out.

Avvo.com compiled the list made up of the 14 NFL cities that have never won a Super Bowl, basing their rankings on factors including overall team performance, psychiatrists per capita, unemployment, heavy drinking, adults with hypertension, average yearly sunshine and average commute time to and from work.

Here is the complete list.

1. Philadelphia
2. Atlanta
3. Cincinnati
4. Houston
5. San Diego
6. Detroit
7. Jacksonville
8. Cleveland
9. Charlotte
10. Seattle
11. Phoenix
12. Buffalo
13. Nashville
14. Minneapolis

I can see Minneapolis being the least-depressed. Buffalo being ranked 12th surprises me. I’ve been there. They ought to be in the Top 5.

And the fact that Detroit is not ranked in the top spot immediately makes this list invalid.

The Keynesian Koffee Fetcher

Wow. Something related to the Daily Schmoe that actually made me laugh. This was taken at that Rally for Commies event.

Quite a bit of white faces in that crowd. I counted six persons of color.
