NOTE: Since Beisner brought up politics in this morning’s post, I thought it was only necessary to recognize my favorite politician of all-time, Jerry Springer. Seriously, has any person ever lived the American dream more than this guy? He got in trouble because he payed for a hooker with a personal check in Kentucky, and THEN was elected mayor of Cincinnati. And instead of all that destroying the rest of his life, he turned into the most popular talk show host in the country, outside of Oprah. He highlighted a group of people who don’t get recognized very often in this country, and that is redneck idiots. Good ole’ shameless rednecks, people who use their 6 brain cells to try and punch their girfriend in front of a studio audience. So here is to you, Jerry Springer, as American as they come.
1) Hilarious grouping of charts and graphs about college football, especially SEC football.
2) Here is a fantastic clip from the Daily Show about the matchup between Philadelphia and New York teams from this past weekend. Good stuff about two fanbases who are filled with less than popular people.
3) If you have not yet seen the “30 for 30” documentaries going on right now on ESPN, you are missing one of the better things that ESPN has tried in the past 5 years. The most recent one, a film about one of Muhammed Ali’s last fights, this one against Larry Holmes, was FANTASTIC. It is one of the saddest stories you can imagine, with people in the Ali camp admitting that he was already experiencing Parkinson’s symptoms before the fight.
4) I have so many questions about this video:
a. Since when does a dress have pockets?
b. What the hell kind of version of happy birthday is this?
c. Shouldn’t Marcellus Wiley be a better dancer than this because he is a ………former football player?
