Request: Make Football Less Terrible

The request is a simple one. Help me make football less terrible. Between Sarah and BrianJolly, I image I will be watching a lot of football this year. I need to find a way to make it less terrible. The path seems pretty clear. The easiest way to make sports less nerdy is math.

The the point: Would anyone be interested in putting together a fantasy football thing? We would use Yahoo or one other such service. Brain already said he as interested. Anyone else? Kyle I am looking at you.

Terror Babies are the New Anchor Babies

Anchor Babies are a totally bullshit thing that nativists made up. I think this crazy ass State Senior from Texas got her talking points mixed up because she went on Anderson Cooper's show to talk about Terror babies. To the video!

I am not 100% sure what a terror baby is. Not that Debbie Riddle does. I think a terror baby is a child born in american, so they are citizens, than are trained from a young age to be future terrorists.

Okay. Well. That is certainly something.

That something is Bullshit.

On the most basic level this is just another to collapse Arab and Terrorist into a single category. Those "people" are coming to our country are different than us because they won't eat our pork barbeque. Clearly Houston's love of pulled pork makes it a prime target.

Man.. Fan Trailers are best ever.

Levi Johnston is an American Hero.

Dear Levi Johnston

Hats (and pants) off to you sir. You are a true American Hero. No other person has been able to fuck with Sarah Palin nearly as well.

Your new reality show, the one where you run for mayor of Wasilla, is going to be magical. There is no other way to describe it.

Loving Levi: The Road to the Mayor's Office is going to be a cultural touch stone. There is no higher achievement is reality television than the pure self-servising wackiness that this show will bring.

Weezer is killing America

Yes Roscoe, I am up for the challenge.

Any right thinking person believes that Rivers Cuomo died in a plain crash shortly after the release of Pinkerton. Pinkerton, like Weezer (Blue Album) was awesome. There is not a bad song on either album. But it has all been down hill from there. There was a good song on the green album...maybe. The video for "Pork and Beans" was something. There is no other way to explain the general shittiness of Weezer.

I believe we can all agree on this point. But than this happened:

Weezer's New Album Cover: The Face of Lost's Hurley.jpeg

That is the cover for "Weezers" forthcoming album Hurley. I shit you not. From

I was coming up with all kinds of stuff, but ultimately, we just went with some random word that doesn't really have anything to do with anything. I just loved this photo of Jorge Garcia -- it just had this amazing vibe. We didn't want to do a fourth self-titled record and we knew people would refer to it as 'the Hurley record' even if we left it without that title, so we just called it 'Hurley.' No words are on the cover because all we wanted was his amazing face

"Weezer" / Fake Rivers Cuomo I applaud your overwhelming bullshit. We know you have a lot of nerd cred. "In the Garage" alone ought to buy you a laugh time of passes. But 75% of Lost sucked. 15% of the good was watching Jorge Garcia Hurley around.* Now you have gone and made one of the few things that kept me watching that damned show terrible.

You are a cultural terrorist. This is like Michael Bay making Transformers. This is like The Simpsons's stupid Ke-dollar sign-ha intro.

*The remaining 10% is mostly Ben related.

I can so relate to this.

The whole blog is worth looking at. but this was of special appeal to me.
