Who Really Runs The Country

I found the following picture via reddit, that shows who is actually running the country. I find it funny yet somehow has the sense of reality.

Dick Cheney Is A Rogue Nation

I love watching the show Countdown on MSNBC hosted by Keith Olbermann. He is a very intelligent and witty person. I have always received a kick out of him beginning with his days on ESPN.
I have been reluctant to add political content to this blog lately, but I cannot pass up on this one. The following video comes from the episode on June 21, 2007. Evidently, Dick Cheney has officially listed himself above the law.
Olbermann's comments are both hysterical and sad at the same time.

I Dare You

Seriously. Prove to me that you don't find the following video too cute. I dare you. I don't think you can.
You will be overcome by the cuteness of it. You will not be able to help yourself.
Watch it and see.

The NBA Championship

Well, I just finished watching the San Antonio Spurs absolutely demolish the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 4. The Cavs had no business being in the same building as the Spurs.

So, the Spurs have now won 4 titles in the past decade. Well congrats to them. But, let me speak for 98% of the country.

"Who gives a rats ass?"

The Spurs are depressingly boring to watch. I think I'd rather watch dogs commit suicide. Or, I'd rather watch another Hulk movie. Or another Schumacher directed Batman movie.

They play good defense. They are a team. Everything that the NBS is NOT supposed to be. If, I'm watching pros play the game, shouldn't they at least score more than college teams?

David Stern will never ever admit to this, but defense is bad for the NBA. There need to be more teams like the Phoenix Suns. Tim Duncan is as photogenic and charismatic as a bowl of soup.

Well, at least the NFL season is fast approaching. Ugh.
Oh, look Joel Schumacher is knocking at my door with his Batman movies. Time to throw a pizza party. Because, you know, the Batmobile can drive up the sides of buildings.

Gene Upshaw Has Gone Too Far

Well, I am sitting here watching ESPN Sportscenter and I hear this story about how Gene Upshaw, executive director of the NFL Players Association, is quoted as saying he is going to "break some guy's .... damn neck."

The guy he is referring to is Joe DeLamielleure, a Hall of Fame Offensive lineman for the Buffalo Bills.

Upshaw's threat apparently was in response to DeLamielleure's comments about how he considers the NFLPA to be not acting in the interest of the retired players. The NFLPA has been accused by many people of not acting in a fair manner regarding the health of former players, including injuries and concussions.

DeLamielleure joins a chorus of people criticizing Gene Upshaw that includes former player and coach Mike Ditka, and Lem Barney.

I am kind of in shock as to Upshaw's threat to break Joe's neck. You have to be smarter than that. He has had his elected job for 24 years now. Evidently he considers himself above criticism. If that is the case, then he must step aside. There is no other option.

So, I join Mike Ditka in asking for Gene Upshaw to resign. Let someone else lead the NFLPA.

The Cubs Doing What They Do Best

Here I am browsing different sites on the internet and listening to ESPN on TV. Along comes a story that just makes me shake my head and laugh.

The Atlanta Braves are currently beating the Cubs 8-1. The Cubs losing is not what made em shake my head. What caused that was hearing that Cubs pitcher Carlos Zambrano and catcher Michael Barrett got into a fight in the dugout.

Let me say this for people who haven't caught on yet. These two players are on the same team. Teammates. And they are fighting.

Oh well, with the Cubs already out of the playoff race, at least I have the upcoming football season to look forward to.

Way to spend $300 million Cub leadership. Congrats.

EDIT: Well, the Cubs did lose the game. And it finally hit me, no pun intended, that the Cubs cannot even lose correctly. Ugh. I think the Cubs would save everybody a lot of time and energy if they all just went out into the street and shot themselves.

Man, I love the movie Major League.
