The BYU win was amazing!

07 Sep

True freshman  who has NEVER played in a collegiate game and who was in Chile 3 months ago and has not played for years (in high school he was co-MVP of the Elite 11 with Jamies Winston) comes in for an injured Heisman candidate SR. QB, tears it up, and then throws a Hail Mary to win over Nebraska with no time left on the clock.

THIS is why college football is awesome!

So I’m watching

07 Jan

the BCS “championship” game and the screen is split five ways. Plus, there is a huge black band at the top. There’s no way to get rid of it. Horrible. I have two words for the moron who thought that this would be a good idea: You’re fired! Epic fail. On a cosmic level. <shakes head>

So I’m looking on TV for a game last evening and

02 Jan

I turn to the Fiesta Bowl. It is Central Florida and Baylor. Are you freakin’ kidding me? Holy crap, what a dog! BOTH teams are HUGE losers! I’m just gobsmacked! I don’t give a crap who wins. I don’t even care. The ratings have to have been in the toilet. There’s not even the excitement of an underdog. Could there be two LESS exciting teams (regardless of ranking)? Whoever at the bowl commission thought this was a good lineup should be fired, PRONTO! And have a big “L” tattooed on his forehead. And burned. I’m just shaking my head in amazement… 

I really don’t care what the rankings are. This is a sucky matchup.

I gotta tell you,

29 Aug

I’m pretty excited about college football starting. Thursday can’t come fast enough for me. Not a huge fan of pro football, though.

What mamby-pamby lefties

14 Jan

need to know before they try to write about guns. There are lots of gems in this article, but the one that makes me laugh hardest is:

Perhaps the most egregious example of this came from someone who knew better: the Brady Campaign’s president, Paul Helmke, who in Collins’s column is quoted claiming that 9mm semiautomatics are “not suited for hunting or personal protection” and that “what it’s good for is killing and injuring a lot of people quickly.” If 9mm Glocks aren’t suited for protecting oneself and others, someone should tell the nation’s police departments, many of which use them — and many more of which use .40-caliber Glocks, which are similar but slightly more powerful.

The idea that the Glock 19 is not GREAT for self-defense is utterly laughable. This guy clearly either a) doesn’t know what the crap he is talking about or b) is just a shill. Well, it might be c) both. But the Glock 19 is one of the best carry weapons EVER. When I went looking for a defense weapons, after a TON of research I realized that the Glock 19 was the best option (though that was several years ago and the XDs–very much like Glocks-are great, too. You can shoot “hot” loads out of the 19 that are very close to the .45 in terms of ballistics. And I don’t like the .40 with it’s “snap.”)

Sorry, this guy is a moron. He is completely ignorant or just a hack. In either case, no thinking person should take what he says as the truth. Yes, of course it was from the NY Times–where else do you see such stupidity and mindless lefty bleating?  Sheesh! <shakes head>

Well, Auburn beat the Ducks last night,

11 Jan

and I’m glad. It’s not that I’m an Auburn fan–I don’t even know where Auburn is. It’s that I love to see the Ducks lose. The Ducks have really made me an Oregon fan. Oregon State Beavers.

By my rather unscientific count,

10 Jan

Non-cartel (that is, non-BC$) teams have played BC$ teams twice this bowl season. The non-cartel teams won both times. Gee, I wonder what would happen if we had a playoff? I have a solution, but even BC$ critics shy away from it. It would work and it would be good, but the “Can I have some more, sir?” attitude runs deep. I just keep waiting for the B$U fans and others to say, “Thank you, sir, may I have another?”

Honestly, what we have now is a sick joke. It’s only because of the crass fat cats that we have such a ludicrous system.

Talk about a HORRIBLE slate of bowl games this year!

07 Jan

Tonight it’s middle Tennessee State against Miami of Ohio. Wow. Of course, it IS the execrable GoDaddy.com bowl, but my complaints against GoDaddy will be for another day.

Maybe if we had a PLAYOFF we could have actual good games on. Instead we get THIS.
