The crapblog needs a post, so I’ll do my part. I don’t really have any plan, I’ve had some sort of sore throat/fever thing going on since Saturday, so I’m not all that coherent either. Wish me luck.
First, when did Aaron Rogers become such a whiny bitch? I mean, I know both Harbaugh brothers are whiny, little punks, but Aaron Rogers? I still think they made the right call. My favorite take on it was the MNF idjits, one of them said, “He had more possession”. You either have possession or not. Simultaneous possession goes to the offense. Suck it you whiny bitches.
You know who’s the most upset about replacement refs? Green Bay, New England, Miami, Dallas and most especially Pittsburgh and Philly (Philly for home games only). The regular refs suck their dicks and now the new ones screw up randomly.
You know who’s happiest? The Giants, Bears and anybody playing the above teams. Why? The regular refs fuck them up the ass all the time. Just to make it clear, I like the Steelers, Miami and occasionally New England, while I don’t like the Bears, so I’m not just saying those teams because I like them or hate them.
Last year the Bears had the best play. Hester is the best punt returner in the universe, so they sent him to the right and he stared up at the sky as if he was waiting for the ball, as another player sort of strolled casually to the left. Even the punter, who had to know where he punted the ball, ran toward Hester. The guy on the other side of the field, all alone, caught the ball and ran for a TD. The refs called some bullshit holding call. The Bears had no need to block as they wanted the other team (Packers as I recall) to go after Hester. Bullshit.
Enough of that bullshit.
Next we have the unfortunate events in the MidWest.
Like a pot of bratwurst left unattended at a Lambeau Field pregame party, simmering tensions in the strife-torn Midwest boiled over once again today as rioting mobs of green-and-gold clad youth and plump farm wives rampaged through Wisconsin Denny’s and IHOPs, burning Texas toast and demanding apologies and extra half-and-half.
The spark igniting the latest tailgate hibachi of unrest: a Texas newsletter’s publication of caricatures of legendary Green Bay Packers coach Vince Lombardi.
As usual, Iowahawk is pitch perfect. I especially like the fact that it’s some Texas guy’s newsletter that sparked it.
Now for something almost as funny as Iowahawk (in the endy sense). So Greece is totally screwed, they need to face reality and work to make sure their country doesn’t just go bankrupt. So what’s a Greek worker to do?
Greek workers have begun their first mass confrontation with Greece’s three-month-old coalition government, grounding flights, disrupting local transport and shutting public service offices….
Even tax collectors have said they will join in the action which has also closed archaeological sites, including the ancient Acropolis.
Well first off, you have to love that bit about tax collectors going on strike. Does the IRS have a union? Is there some way we can get them to go on strike?
But more importantly, we have a country that’s out of money and is whining at the EU about getting more money (no strings attached of course) so naturally, they make sure that they close down tourism and tax collection. That’s like shooting yourself in the foot but first putting your foot to your forehead.
A pretty libertarian guy woke up to find a drunk guy he didn’t know asleep on his couch. See what he did and think of how you might have handled it differently.
I’m not sure what I would have done, I don’t think it would have involved guns or the police, I’m thinking more like sharpies and a camera. But then, I don’t have kids and I’m kind of an asshole.
