The Rundown


My observations on Football, Pop Culture and anything else I damn well please.

So the NFL preseason is in full swing, Favre is back… again. Plaxico Burress is going to be in jail longer than Vick for shooting… himself ! and does anyone actually watch Hard Knocks to actually watch the Bengals? The responses are: Yawn, HAHAHA and CHILD PLEASE!

 Can someone please explain to me when I should start caring about Brett Favre? He is a self important overhyped asshole who has practically hijacked the sports media for the last 18 or so months. I say it ends now and the reason is simple. He isn’t that good anymore, pure and simple. Let’s see if the king of stubble can make it through a whole season in one piece and then maybe we can see this little baby go away and walk into the sunset he seems to walk into every March.

 Second, can we start calling Reggie Bush a bust yet? Exactly when is the moratorium up because I want to be the first person to say I TOLD YOU SO to all of those Saints fans that wouldn’t know a quality player if they drafted one!

 You know that brings up a fun little observation: Was the 2006 draft a shitty as it looks? Mario Williams, the player everyone thought would have the most trouble is doing the best of all of the top picks now. Vince Young, Matt Leinert, Reggie Bush and Michael Huff were all top ten picks and one can’t stay healthy enough to do anything on the field ,while the other two “franchise QB’s” are warming a bench somewhere behind better and much older QB’s. And Huff  has fallen behind in the depth chart of a literal and figurative BLACK HOLE… of talent that is. 

 Now don’t get me wrong there was some talent and, from the looks of things the Texans made out like freaking bandits in ’06. Getting Mario Williams, DeMeco Ryans and Owen Daniels is a pretty damned good way to start your draft in the first four rounds.

Inglorious Basterds premiers today and I say thank you Jesus or something because the world needs Quentin Tarantino  now more than ever to literally rescue the world from the likes of Twilight and The Jonas Brothersand other derivative laden crap that has been sold to us by Disney and other media companies that market to us all as if we are a bunch of tweens. Call me crazy but I am a 30 year old man and sometimes I want to see some adult shit and if that just happens to feature a bunch of Nazis getting their brains bashed in then I say FUCK YEAH!

Do you know why
