Various & Sundry XXIV

So…Rooney slaps Gorgeous here on the wrist and says, “Now Benji, this is the LAST TIME I’m bailing you out for being so incredibly stupid and pompous as to get yourself into another ridiculous mess where you insinuated your beautiful, Roman god-like body parts onto the person of a young female. I know I told you last time was the last time, but I’m not kidding — this is the LAST TIME. And next time will be the last time, too. And I mean it!”


ComĀ·mitĀ·ment – the act of binding oneself to a course of action, especially for the greater good of a group. Synonyms – dedication, loyalty, pledge. Imagine that.


There needs to be a switch in your brain you can throw for “Instant Good Mood and Sunny Outlook.”


Saw this as a fan group to join on Facebook: “Don’t blame our generation. Your generation raised us.” Don’t. Get. Me. Started.


The plates. Gotta keep spinning the plates…but hey:

  1. There are still good people in the world who care about things that might just actually NOT be about them personally (my favorites of whom are reading this right now).
  2. I will get to see my grandsons this weekend.
  3. July will be here before we know it, and I will be motoring west.
  4. Starbucks is open, and I’m already showered and dressed. Bring it.

    And now Big Ben has to get his “don’t do that anymore” speech from Roger Goodell. I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned this, but… I hate Roger Goodell. I’m not saying he’s racist, but I am saying that he only punishes black players. Matt Jones, a Jaguars WR, gets caught with quite a bit of “blow”, and gets to play that season. But, Pac Man got all “rebellion” at a “script club” (if you don’t get those jokes, you need to watch the interview he did with ESPN about the strip club incident. Pac Man has quite the command of the english language)and is gone for a season. And besides that, he’s turned the NFL into the No Fun League. Because we all know what’s REALLY damaging to our society and it’s young people is endzone celebrations.

    Meeting went well, by the way. Ben said it was “productive.” And, unfortunately, the mullet is gone. It was a really fancy mullet, though.

      Ugh. Friend…mullet, no mullet, crew cut, high and tight, buzzed…he still dirty. Reminds me of Fred Flintstone.

    Don’t get me wrong, I dislike the buffoon as much as the next true Ohioan, but I am “defending the shield” on this one. With the incredible amount of underlying social issues linked to Big Dumb Ben I am glad Roger Goodell is taking his time on this. He hasn’t suspended Ben YET. The story was that he was going to take a few weeks to make a decision. Even if he doesn’t suspend him, it’s widely considered that the Steelers will suspend him. They might even trade him away a la Santonio Holmes. If nothing else, his rep is damaged irreparably. Do you know where Adam “Pacman” Jones is right now? I’m not sure either!
