I want to start a bounty fund right now to take out Dick Durbin.

Quote
One possibility, Durbin explained, would be to extend federal sports bribery laws to cover bounties, so that "if someone offers in a team sports situation some sort of value, money or otherwise, to intentionally hurt another player, that, in fact, would be a crime."

What's with this moron? The Saints aren't even in the NFC Central.

He's running a draw play, or maybe it's a fumblerewski. Either way, he's trying to distract people from the horrid shittiness of the US Senate by highlighting the underlying horrid shittiness.

So he's basically the Tim Tebow of the Senate?

So apparently the Jets are saying that they're going to give Tebow like 20 snaps a game.. so you're going to give him basically half of the offensive snaps in a game?

How do the Jets not realize that the Wildcat didn't stop being effective because the Jets and the Dolphins didn't have the right players to execute it anymore, it stopped being effective because it's a trick play and eventually opposing coaches figured out how to counter it?

Hiring Tony Sparano to replace Schottenheimer was like hiring a pile of horse shit to replace a pile of dog shit. Sure, it will smell better and be less offensive, but it's still a pile of shit.

The only question for the AFC East next season is who will win the WC: Bills or Dolphins.

Have you ever smelled horse shit? It stinks waaay worse than dog shit. And the Jets are destined to implode this year.

Really? Because dog poop makes me retch when I have (had) to pick it up (back when I owned a dog) whereas I don't know, maybe it's the vegetable content or something but horse poop just smells like horse poop. I mean, it doesn't smell *good* or anything.

Wait, what was this about again?

Put it this way: a horse eats the equivalent of a medium-size dog per day in hay and oats (or something like it). The fecal exudate may not be worse smelling on a pound-for-pound basis, but there's a lot more of it!

And, contrary to popular belief, Tebow's shit stinks too.

So, I'm just trying to make sure I didn't totally miss something during my last 20 years of watching football.....

We all know for certain that Mark Sanchez is a better QB than Tim Tebow, right?

I mean, if we don't all know that, then I'm beginning to think that I actually have no idea what I'm watching when I view a football game....
Well.  There it is.

Tebow is a publicity stunt QB.  As to Sanchez being better?  I am honestly not sure.

I own a dog, and when I was in Boy Scouts I used to muck out the stables for three horses. I would so rather muck out three horses' worth of poop every day than pick up the foul-smelling excrement left by my wife's 15-lb. chihuahua three times a day.
