Thank You Bob Stoops

by Admin | Tags:
Even if he is a Bobby Bowden nemesis, it’s good to hear someone sticking up for Gundy – and standing up to the media double standard. “Everybody has a remark on everything we do, and that’s OK,” Stoops told reporters Tuesday. “As soon as a coach has an opinion on what any of you do, then you can’t do that. I don’t know why that would be. We’re ... [More]

Integrity “The only thing that matters to me is what I thought was right, and whatever I thought was right is what I said. Other than that, I just have to let it go,” Gundy said. “I don’t say things for people to disagree or agree with me. I say them if I think they’re right.” That is the quote of the week.

So, here’s what Sally Field… utters (?) (seems like the best description of this catastrophic verbal outburst)… about war: Sally Yes, well… the standard minimum criteria necessary to “rule” in Sally’s perfect world of “no goddamned war in the first place” is to have the equipment to give birth to a child.

GI Joke

GI Joke So… what crimes will General International Joe be fighting? Will he be running around in a blue helmet handing out boxes of food to warlords who take it and sell it on the black market for weapons?

Vick's Dilemma

by Admin | Tags:
An outstanding column: Jonah Goldberg Vick might never take another snap in the NFL. Of course, other NFL players seem to get away with beating women, burglarizing neighbors, assaulting night club patrons, etc. Many people want to blame the NFL for this double standard.
