1.) Ok, so I just read the Yahoo! Sports story on Drew Rosenhaus and how he may have swindled lots of NFL players out of money by getting them to invest in a project run by his buddy, Jeff Rubin. You know what that investment opportunity was? A rural Alabama BINGO PARLOR.
Oh me oh my. What in the world are these NFL players thinking? Look, don’t get me wrong, it sucks that they got suckered out of their money, but if a buddy of mine came up to me and said, “Hey, you wanna invest a million dollars in a rural Alabama Bingo Parlor?” I’d tell him to kick rocks.
Who would ever think it was a good idea to invest a million plus dollars in a Bingo parlor? I can just see Rubin running a game of Bingo now:
“B: 54. G: 72. I: stole your money.”
Gah. My head hurts just thinking about the whole situation.
Let’s move on.
2.) This has been annoying me for quite some time, but I’m not sure I ever got around to writing about it.
I was watching the re-make of “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” awhile back and they had a scene where a character stumbles into Leatherface’s house.
Now, the house is a complete mess, naturally. There are pig guts and jars of blood hanging out in the fridge for no discernible reason. This is fine, cause the house belongs to–you know–a bunch of chainsaw wielding psychos.
But then, the character gets all scared and runs out to the back of the house and what do they run into? LAUNDRY! And not just any laundry, rows upon rows of pristine white, clean sheets hanging out to dry.
What in the world is wrong with that picture? You really think Leatherface and any of his band of cohorts is taking the time out of their day to not only wash these sheets, but then hang them up to dry? How did they not get pig’s blood all over them when they transported them from the laundry room to the back yard?
Look, bottom line is this: Leatherface don’t do laundry.
3.) Today I turned on Sportscenter and Berman was rambling on about the Cowboys and Giants, and then for some reason he started talking about Neil Armstrong. HUH? What in the world does Neil Armstrong have to do with football? Methinks Berman is losing his mind.
“Come this Wednesday…let’s just hope that Eli Manning….isn’t throwing the ball……to the Dark Side of the Moon….we’ll be back with the Blitz. After this.”
