Weekend Football Thoughts and Other Things

I finally saw Bridesmaids recently.  I thought it was good, not great.  The line I laughed the hardest at was when John Hamm said, “That cop talks weird.”

LSU has a defensive end named Barkevious Mingo. I feel like his name is racist. 

The NFL Network guys are the best pre-game show on TV, which isn't saying much.  The ESPN guys are awful and aren't willing to criticize anyone since they'll eventually hire half the league.  Howie is the only tolerable one on Fox and CBS is, well, CBS where everything always feels mediocre and half-assed.

The Discover Card’s “Peggy” commercials are a little played, but I like the new one where Peggy gets Kirk Herbstreit's name and address confused. 

The Colts-Bengals game is hard to watch not only because the teams are bad, but because the Bengals uniforms are awful.  

It's much easier to bail on your team’s game to watch a more interesting matchup when they are 0-5. In fact, it’s much easier to bail on the entire NFL.  Especially when the Irish don't play that same weekend. 

What I’m saying is that I had trouble focusing on football this weekend.

The Lions finally played someone good and guess what happened.  This team has a ton of talent and should really be blowing people out, but they are not.  Verdict?The Lions are poorly coached. 

I’m taking Harbaugh’s side in the whole coach skirmish thing.  Mostly because I think Schwartz is an overrated idiot who got completely out-coached by Harbaugh in that game.

Being a sports photographer seems like it would be an awesome way to see a game, but you'd have to be behind your camera at all of the best moments. 

I sure do hope Jets fans are taking advantage of the bye week to completely freak out about their team.  That is one fanbase that really knows how to freak out.

When teams have a long time starting quarterback with a double digit number, they should force the backups to also have a double digit number so it's not so jarring to watch the team play when the starter goes down. Isn't it weird watching the Colts with a quarterback wearing #7?  Wouldn’t it be weird to see Hoyer (#8) played for the Pats?

Force the Cowboys to wear their blue jerseys and you'll win every time.  Belichick knows what he’s doing.

I feel like we've seen a lot more gruesome injuries this season than we have in any other season I can remember and we're not even halfway through.  Dislocated elbows, broken legs, broken ankles flopping all over the place.  I can’t wait to enroll my kids in soccer.

Why is there large hole in the one end of the Pats' stadium?  Is that the entrance for Bill Belichick’s head?

If they are going to change the kickoff to the 35, I think they should also change the touchback rule so that if the player touches the ball and it rolls out the back of the end zone it's a safety.  They should penalize those players for muffing the catch.

On kickoffs, if you can’t kick the football through the back of the end zone then kick it out of bounds but whatever you do, DO NOT KICK THE BALL TO DEVIN HESTER!  Seriously, wouldn’t you rather give a struggling Bears offense better field position than risk Hester scoring a touchdown?


Wheel of Fortune is still on TV.  That show is exactly a year older than me.  It’s one of the few things that have lasted my entire lifetime.

Also, who are the idiots who buy vowels on that show?  That said, I would totally buy a vowel if one of the words in the puzzle used ‘Y’ as a vowel.  Now that I think about it, I bet they don’t ever use words that have ‘Y’ as a vowel.  If someone were to request a ‘Y’ as a consonant they would have to deny them, right?  I bet they just completely avoid it.  Those devious bastards.
