Gridiron, lol
« on: October 18, 2008, 11:39:38 AM »
OK, it is to laugh. I got excited to see (on the front page of the hometown paper) that my old high school beat Valley Christian in football. I never liked VC. here.

But then there's this comment:

OK, so a Catholic school plays an Evangelical Christian school. Which side does God root for?

:galm: :rollin: :galm:

I dunno, maybe you had to be there.

Also: 6'5", 290 lb. lineman?!?!
OK. I went to high school with a couple guys who played (as linemen, incidentally) in Super Bowls. and NONE of them was that big.

Something wrong there, I think.

Well, I'd just like to blame Jesus.  I would've caught that pass for a touchdown, but the Lord tripped me up.

My nephew goes to Valley.  Used to go to Harker but his parents got cheap.

Speaking of football and the divine ... it has been a busy week for Mike Singletary.

First he grounded the tight end and sent him to bed without his dinner, then he mooned his players, now this:

Quote from: Miami Herald
Fox is weighing whether to assign reporter Danyelle Sargent to more NFL games after an embarrassing mistake last week. During a taped interview with new 49ers coach Mike Singletary, Sargent said, “I hear your mentor Bill Walsh was one of the first phone calls you made when you found out you had the job.”


Well if Mike is into intercessory prayer, he could have answered this in the affirmative. “Bill … I know you’re up there watching me … if there’s anything you can do to help us get out of this clusterfuck …”

I always liked Singletary, since his college days at Baylor. Always the warrior. His candor in that press conference was refreshing; hopefully his spirit will be a good kick in the ass for that team. As a Dallas fan since birth (I'm sure I've mentioned I was brought home from the hospital in a Cowboys outfit), I've never held any particular love for the Niners, but it sucks to have an NFL where they aren't any good.

I feel the same way about America's Team, Postie  :D

Singletary's biggest problem is the ownership. They never should have taken the team away from Eddie, Federal crimes or no Federal crimes. Say what you will about Mr. Jones, but you can't argue he's not a net positive for his team.

We can all thank NFL Films for the America's Team thing, heh. One of the funniest riffs on that was when Staubach used to call Danny White "America's Punter"  :lol:

But yeah, at least we know JJ does what he does because he sincerely wants to win. Although, it seemed kinda weird that they went for another WR when the defense is what seems to need help the most. They stood up nicely in that respect in the last game, but this is turning out to be a strange season here so far. Nobody questions Jones's motives too much anymore though...I mean he's gonna make big money no matter what. Hell, they even got an NBA All Star Game coming to the new stadium, weird as that is. But yeah, DeBartolo was of similar mindset for sure. He always took care of his players.

(In the other football, I've lost a great deal of my enthusiasm for FCD with the moves they've made. It's like when they get somebody good, the question isn't "Cool, this guy kicks ass, how do we build around those strengths and get better?" but rather "Hmmm, how much can we get for trading this guy to somebody else?" It is disheartening. A lot of stalwart season ticket holders have had it, and are not renewing. For many, the last straw was moving a Sat nite rivalry game vs Houston to a later Wed in order to accommodate Ozzfest. Lamar Hunt wouldn't have put up with any of this shit.)

Fixed that for ya.

LOVE Mike Singletary.  HATE that players I loved are now coaches - the years, they don't stop. 

He mooned his players?  Awesome.
