I Will Miss “OMAHA!”

Peyton Manning Says GoodbyeHe knew it. We all knew it. But, Peyton Manning was too classy to make his team’s championship moment about him. No … he waited until nearly the last minute possible to announce he was taking that proverbial stroll into the sunset on his brilliant NFL career in order for his teammates, coaches, and organization to bask in the glory of the rare feat of becoming Super Bowl champion. Oh, I’m sure we could all name a player or two (dozen) that would have stolen the spotlight in their post-game interviews and taken center stage in the media circus. But, not this ring leader.
Nor should it be surprising that the ultimate on-field leader would take the high road off-field, as well. He has spent his entire career trying to deflect the well-deserved attention to others; like colleagues Marvin Harrison, Reggie Wayne, Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas; coaches Tony Dungy, John Fox, and Gary Kubiak; or even team owners Jim Irsay and Pat Bowlen. So, when it came time to answer whether the 50th edition of Super Sunday would be his last in the NFL, he decided to merely say he was going to enjoy the moment “with some Buds” (we can only hope that there may have been some Spicoliesque double entendre intended).
In a word, Peyton Manning is “class”. It’s been the mantra of the way he has handled himself his entire time in the limelight of football. No outrageous attitude, no sense of entitlement, no diva behavior (can’t say the same for his QB sibling). Yet, he dedicated himself completely to his craft, honing his gridiron IQ and skills to the very end. If one was to ever search for the penultimate blueprint for success, Peyton Manning’s work ethic, attitude, and approach should certainly be considered.
I will miss Peyton Manning. I will miss the example he set, not only for his fellow football player, but for every fan of the game. I will miss seeing his magician-like play-action fakes, his pinpoint passes under ponderous duress, and his artful last-second audibles. Most of all, I will miss, as the play clock winds down to it’s last few precious ticks, the loud yell of “The Sheriff” preparing the other ten for the impending snap: with the accent on the third syllable … “OMAHA!”

Slammertime … You Can’t Snort This!

Lindsay Lohan MugshotFirst, my apologies to MC Hammer for the title of this post. I just couldn’t help myself.
If you haven’t heard, Lindsay Lohan is back in jail … oh, what a surprise. Is there any wonder that she is #1 with a bullet atop my Death Pool list? As if jettisoning yet another chance for this self-destructive Hollywood refuse to clean up her act wasn’t enough to raise your ire, we had to hear the pathetic pleas of her spotlight grabbing father as she was being whisked off, once again, to the clink, “She doesn’t need jail time, she needs rehab!”.
Really?!? You mean the rehab she’s continually walked out on, not even spending enough time there to unpack her bags? You mean the rehab she should have been going to the last few months since her last appearance in bright orange State-supplied clothing? You mean the rehab that most drug addicts in this country can’t afford or aren’t even given the chance to attend instead of multi-year pokie sentences?
This is a tragedy in the making that would be comical if it wasn’t so sad. A beautiful, talented, successful young starlet who continually tosses her blessings in the dumpster like they were last week’s Penny Saver. Worse yet, her public defense seems to be headed by an absentee Dad who has decided to show up now that the media circus is in town for the newest episode in this disaster reality show.
If you really wanted to help this girl, you’d sign her into a real high-security rehab unit. One she couldn’t walk out of, of her own volition, for a minimum of 60 days. Then, follow it up with a real Out Patient program, and mandatory daily AA meetings for another 90 days. Unfortunately, it is very likely that the system, her parents, and her support staff will continue to fail her until it it too late. At which point, the eulogies will be written and the finger pointing shall commence.
Via con Dios, L2!

I Just Couldn’t Do It!

Oprah and Sarah Palin together?!?!   Even the prospect of watching a huge train wreck on national TV couldn’t get me to tune in. I just couldn’t do it. I’d rather have shaved my head with a cheese grater while chewing on tinfoil!

Missed America

WARNING: THIS BLOG MAY CONTAIN EXPLICIT LANGUAGE AND/OR ADULT THEMES

The old adage, better to be thought of as a fool than to open one’s mouth and remove all doubt, was never so apropos. Last night, dethroned Miss America and Sarah-Palin-wannabe, Carrie Prejean nearly walked off the perennial “Larry King Live” show on CNN.  She accused the show’s namesake of being “inappropriate” for asking her why she settled her lawsuit with the Pageant over her dismissal (see video below). Actually, the only inappropriate thing Larry did was to have this duplicitous Ho-bag on his show.
It’s bad enough that her public stance against same-sex marriage was enough to get her crown lopped from her hollow dome. But, then it turns out that Ms. Prejean dropped her jeans to make a solo sex tape. That’s right, seems Carrie doesn’t care much for a legal union between two loving and consenting adults, but making self-pleasuring porn is no problem at all. I’m telling you, you just can’t write this stuff!
And, to think they were getting ready to parade Ms. CreamJean out there with ultra-rightwing political aspirations. I could just envision the pre-election debate:
“How do you feel about same-sex sex, Ms. Prejean?”
“I feel that sex should be between yourself and your left hand … and, sometimes, your right.”
Apparently, she also has a book she is out there pumping (her reason for being on LKL), which will probably make a great doorstop. By the time Black Friday rolls around you’ll likely be able to get it, bundled with Palin’s waste of paper, in the “Please, Just Take These Books We Can’t Sell” bin of your local bookstore … along with a free cup of coffee and a donut for your troubles. I just can’t imagine anyone would want to read the drivel that this brainless lemming is trying to unload. Because, even Sarah knows that shooting a Moose from a helicopter is much different than shooting your Moose-knuckle in HD.

I am NOT an Oprah fan by any means. But, this is one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen.  It’s worth the 5 minutes!
