At Least The Plex Gunshot Celebration Was Funny

leave a comment »

If Steve Johnson failed to reach some contract incentives due to his in-game stunt, I’m going to laugh.

Actually, I’m laughing already. If the coach tells the team a player will be benched for doing something like this, then expect to pay the piper.

Bills coach Chan Gailey benched Johnson for drawing an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty on Sunday when he celebrated a touchdown catch by lifting his jersey to reveal an undershirt that said, “Happy New Year!” The Bills added another TD before New England scored the next 49 points to win 49-21.

“The coach told me I was out of the game. I have to respect his decision,” said Johnson, who had four catches for 40 yards to become the first Bills receiver with consecutive 1,000-yard seasons. “I can’t complain about it or whine or pout. He made his decision and I am going with it. … I have to take that, and I will.”

Undershirt decoration has become something of a hobby for Johnson, who wore one against Cincinnati last season that said, “Why So Serious?” The NFL fined him $5,000, but he was not penalized; that’s why Johnson said he thought he could get away with it this time.

“I didn’t know it was going to draw a penalty,” he told reporters.

Johnson was also fined $10,000 for pretending to shoot off a rifle against the Patriots last year, mocking the costumed Minutemen who celebrate a New England score. And he drew an excessive celebration penalty against the Jets this season when he pretended to shoot himself in the legs — mimicking New York receiver Plaxico Burress — then imitated an airplane crashing into the turf.

After that one, Gailey warned the team that anyone who drew a demonstration penalty would be benched.

I like Hines Ward and all that, and I do think he is Hall-of-Fame material. His stats may not be as gaudy as he peers, but for whatever reason when I hear his name and “Hall of Fame” I think “yes.” (Never said I was the most stats-obsessed person roaming this planet.)

With that being said, would you really want your 1000th NFL catch to be THAT — a “gimnmie” shovel pass for a negative gain? Even Michael Strahan’s single-season sack record thinks that’s lame.

Then again, it was the fourth-quarter of the final regular-season game. Who knows if Ward is coming back to the Steelers next year. Still, that play just seemed so … anti-Hines.

It’s The End Of The World As We Know It … Depending On Who’s Elected

No matter who wins this year’s presidential election, can we please refrain from any, “OMG the Mayans were right about the end of the world happening at year’s end” comments?

I promise not to use this line if you promise not to use this line.

New Year’s Eve 2011

leave a comment »

Last night, much like 13 of the previous 14 New Year’s Eves, the better half and I stayed home, got Chinese/Italian take-out and watched movies.

I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Neither one of us has been a fan of December 31, and this was even before we met. We just don’t have any desire to deal with a bunch of drunk, obnoxious assholes in public — we deal with that enough already.

So what did we watch? First up was “Shutter Island.” It was OK; I knew what was going to happen at the end. Extremeley overrated and a bit on the long side, in my opinion, but perfectly acceptable.

Next up was, “The New World.” Holy wow was this movie terrible. Less than 15 minutes into this three-hour flick I was seriously thinking of turning it off, which NEVER happens. Guess it was one of those instances where I had the thing on so I might as well get the viewing experience over with.
