Ohio State coach Jim Tressel just resigned from his job. in the midst of an NCAA investigation. He said “God has a plan for us and we will be fine.” Us being he and his wife. Nice for that hypocrite to use GOD on his way out the door to get folks off his ass.
You know he wrote a couple of books while he was the coach of Ohio State? They were about religion and integrity. He talked about how they did it the “Right Way” at Ohio State. But while he was scribbling all that b.s. his players were selling their college gear for services and money. And he knew about it and lied to NCAA investigators.
Now it is coming out that he didn’t just lie about a couple of incidents. He lied about a lot more. This goes back to pre-OSU days at Youngstown State.
Tressel left Youngstown State for Ohio State while his program there was under investigation. Youngstown State was put on probation and lost scholarships. Hmm. I wonder how he won four Division II championships at Youngstown.
Rest assured, with “God” as his guide, Tressel will land on his feet … at ESPN as their next “expert” analyst on College Gameday. He can sit right next to Urban Meyer and Herm Edwards. ‘Cause ESPN can rip someone all day about their deficiencies as a player (Kordell Stewart), or General Manager (Matt Millen), but as soon as one of those people is unemployed, they hire them as an expert.
Continuing with Ohio State … how stupid is QB Terrelle Pryor. In the eye of the NCAA investigation, Pryor shows up at the team meeting on Monday (the same day Tressel announces his resignation) driving a Nissan 350Z.
He showed up in this car even though he has no job and a suspended license.
Pryor must hate Jim Tressel and Ohio State and is doing his best to screw them both. I bet Tressel watched him drive up and said to himself: “I brought this dumbass to Ohio State, he didn’t fit my offense, he is a jerk, he didn’t win a championship and I lost my job because of this idiot.”
Three years from now, after some NFL team wastes their time picking him up in the supplemental draft and cuts him two years later, everyone will wonder how someone with the limited talent and lack of common sense managed to take down a storied program like Ohio State. .
Tiger Woods is an average golfer now, and his income has been reduced by about $50 million the last two years. DAMN.But he was still the highest paid athlete in the world last year. By a bundle. He still made over $75 million. Next closest was Kobe Bryant at $53 million.
Kareem Adbul-Jabbar was on television the other day crying about not having a statue outside the Staples Center. Really? If you are great, other people know it. You don’t have to remind them. The Lakers told him he would be the next one to get a statue – Jerry West, Magic and Chick Hearn have ‘em. But he wants one now.
If I were the Lakers I’d immediately commission one – to be placed outside the Tijuana Coliseum.
Who begs for a statue?
And he wonders why he isn’t an NBA head coach.
Shaq retired today. I guess he is the only one that didn’t think he was already retired.
QB Alex Smith is planning to run unofficial San Francisco 49er workouts. Hasn’t he been doing that the last few years? Everything he’s done has looked unofficial.
I know everyone has wanted to do it. And it finally happened. I am only jealous it wasn’t me.
We have all sat on a plane wondering why a seat can recline when it will cause the person behind the seat to be further cramped – beyond having one’s knees bent and feet barely fitting under the seat in front of you and your achilles at the verge of tearing and you elbow jostling with the person next to you for ownership of that armrest so you don’t have to sit with your arms crossed like you are in a straitjacket.
But as you sit there, the person in front of you has the nerve to recline their seat so you can’t move at all. And you wonder – why can’t this person just sit his fat ass up? Been there. Many times. And I just wanted to reach over the seat and slap them in the head.
I don’t even reclince my seat ‘cause I feel bad for the person behind me. But the person in front of you does it, so you do like Biggie Smalls and Lean Back, Lean Back. and that causes the person behind you to want to smack you so they lean back and it starts a chain reaction – all the way back to that poor bastard in the row in front of the bathroom who can’t recline.
With that as backdrop, a plane left Washington D.C. for Ghana this week Someone reclined their seat and the guy sitting behind just went off. And I get it. He settles in for a 14-hour flight and as soon as the plane gets past the point they can turn off the seat-belt light, the jerk in front of him Leaned Back. Eventually, after some back and forth, he leaned over the seat and smacked the LeanBack man in the head. Hilarous.
Old “LeanBack” responds by getting up and wanting to fight. They had to be separated. Citing a possible terrorist situation, the pilot, escorted by military jets, returned to Dulles.
And then everyone was informed the flight wouldn’t leave again ‘til the next day. Okay, now I am pissed off … But I have to laugh when I think about it, ‘cause I have thought of it myself.
