Save the hitting for the field

Well, bless their hearts, they just can’t seem to keep their hands to themselves. That’s the polite way of saying that the ever-growing list of allegedly abusive NFL players need to find more productive uses for their hands other than beating people before one of their victims decides to fight back and go all Burning …

Some things, we just don’t need to see

AUTHOR’S NOTE: If you don’t pick up on all the sarcasm, don’t bother reading. The sarcasm is purely to make a point. I do not condone violence of any kind, nor do I take joy in others’ pain. *** No video? No problem! Frankly, I don’t even know where to start. I’m angry, frustrated and …

Leaving isn’t that simple

I told you so. Some relish taunting others with those four words, holding them over a person’s head like a morsel of food just out of a starving dog’s leaping reach. Their cruelty grates, so I will not say them. Deep down, I wished for all the world that my line of thinking was wrong. …

Just when we thought it couldn’t possibly get any worse …

Here we go again. I’m beginning to wonder if it’s ever going to end. It’s bad enough that there are past and present NFL players who are alleged murderers (and another who obstructed a homicide investigation) and rapists, wife beaters, dog killers, bullies, drug abusers and alcoholics, among other terrible things. Now, we get to …

NFL drops the ball yet again

Rampant stupidity. We see it everywhere, sad to say. Wal-Mart customers rip open packages of underwear and socks because, y’know, they think they’re going to somehow look different from the pictures quite clearly displayed on them. Um, DUH. This same idiotic reasoning apparently also applies to the NFL and the Baltimore Ravens for failing domestic …

I cry unconstitutional!

The U.S. Constitution apparently means fuck all. I kept mum on this issue for as long as I could because I generally don’t discuss or involve myself in politics in any way for any reason, but I’m beyond fed up, disgusted, disillusioned — whatever you want to call it. It’s just … WRONG. The U.S. …

Sometimes, the good guy does win

Jonathan Martin got what he deserved. Well, for the most part, anyway. He has a second chance — a fresh start, if you will — to work and play in a safe environment under a head coach with whom he has a healthy past history from his college days. Sometimes, the good guy does win. …

I’ve gone and lost it

I will never, ever post another pro-Auburn blog entry again. My writing mojo since has suffered, or so it seems. I tried writing other entries, but my heart wasn’t in any of them, so I scrapped those ideas. However, I believe that will change since the recent release of a report resulting from an extensive independent …

Because Sabol Made Me Feel Able

Football isn’t for you girls. It’ll muss your dainty lil’ curls. Go play with your Barbie doll Instead of running with that ball. Stop tackling your brother Or I’m telling your mother. Can’t have you getting hurt Or ripping that brand new skirt. Quit chasing the family pet Like a QB you’re out to get. …

Apathy

I told you I wasn’t going to hold my breath. The National Football League’s Miami Dolphins did exactly what I thought they would: Put on a united front instead of doing the right thing regarding the – and I detest having to say alleged – bullying of second-year offensive tackle Jonathan Martin by guard Richie …
