Swingin’ on the Haters

November 29, 2010 Randy Neil

What a crazy world we live in.  You accidentally run into a player with your head, you get fined or suspended.  You intentionally run into a player with your fists, with his helmet off, and you’re not suspended, and given the game ball at the end of the day.

Andre Johnson and Cortland Finnegan both got ejected yesterday for fighting and ripping each other’s helmets off, and let me tell you, it was awesome.  That was probably the coolest thing I’ve seen happen for a while.  You know Finnegan was about to get destroyed from the hay-makers of someone around 40 lbs. and 6″ taller than him.  Best news is, NEITHER of them are going to be suspended apparently.  This is the perfect message to send amongst all the insane fines for “legal tackles” the NFL has been giving out.  Remorse is the new innocence these days, so as long as you clear it up within 24 hours, the media will move on, and Roger Goodell will commend you.

Aside from watching the MMA during football, I also had to watch Jay Cutler’s chin slice and dice the Eagles defense up yesterday.  Not a fan.  For many reasons, but mostly because my 5-5 parlay yesterday went 1-5, and the Eagles helped contribute to that astounding number.   For weeks I’ve been in disbelief of the Bears record, but now, after all that, I’d have to think that somehow, someway, the Bears are the real deal?  Ok, I still don’t believe it.

Ah well, that’s it.  I wanted to keep it short n’ simple this week.  I’m heading to Denver on Wednesday, and I’m going to try snowboarding for the first time ever.  This will be epic.
