Welcome to the Realm™ - Version 5.0...
________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________





Things have been kinda hectic lately, Denizens, so once again, the Mothergoose from Denton – who really oughta start her own blog, she’s that sharp – has bailed Blog Titanic™ out again.  (grin)

It’s below the fold, since it’s rather long.

This is a statement that was read over the PA system at the football game at Roane County High School , Kingston , Tennessee , by school Principal, Jody McLeod

“It has always been the custom at Roane County High School football games, to say a prayer and play the National Anthem, to honor God and Country.”

Due to a recent ruling by the Supreme Court, I am told that saying a Prayer is a violation of Federal Case Law. As I understand the law at this time, I can use this public facility to approve of sexual perversion and call it “an alternate life style,” and if someone is offended, that’s OK.

I can use it to condone sexual promiscuity, by dispensing condoms and calling it, “safe sex.” If someone is offended, that’s OK.

I can even use this public facility to present the merits of killing an unborn baby as a “viable! means of birth control.” If someone is offended, no problem…

I can designate a school day as “Earth Day” and involve students in activities to worship religiously and praise the goddess “Mother Earth” and call it “ecology..”

I can use literature, videos and presentations in the classroom that depicts people with strong, traditional Christian convictions as “simple minded” and “ignorant” and call it “enlightenment..”

However, if anyone uses this facility to honor GOD and to ask HIM to Bless this event with safety and good sportsmanship, then Federal Case Law is violated.

This appears to be inconsistent at best, and at worst, diabolical.

Apparently, we are to be tolerant of everything and anyone, except GOD and HIS Commandments.

Nevertheless , as a school principal, I frequently ask staff and students to abide by rules with which they do not necessarily agree. For me to do otherwise would be inconsistent at best, and at worst, hypocritical… I suffer from that affliction enough unintentionally. I certainly do not need to add an intentional transgression.

For this reason, I shall “Render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s,” and refrain from praying at this time.

“However, if you feel inspired to honor, praise and thank GOD and ask HIM,in the name of JESUS, to Bless this event, please feel free to do so.. As far as I know, that’s not against the law—-yet.”

One by one, the people in the stands bowed their heads, held hands with one another and began to pray.

They prayed in the stands. They prayed in the team huddles. They prayed at the concession stand and they prayed in the Announcer’s Box!

The only place they didn’t pray was in the Supreme Court of the United States of America- the Seat of “Justice” in the “one nation, under GOD.”

Somehow, Kingston , Tennessee Remembered what so many have forgotten. We are given the Freedom OF Religion, not the FreedomFROM Religion. Praise GOD that HIS remnant remains!

JESUS said, “If you are ashamed of ME before men, then I will be ashamed of you before MY FATHER..”

If you are not ashamed, pass this on.

I’m not, and I did.

It feels pretty damned good to be wrong sometimes.

Arlington Heights 34, Dunbar 29

#15 Texas Christian 14, at Clemson 10

UBuffalo 13, at Temple 37

at #25 Nebraska 55, Louisiana-Lafayette 0

at Dallas 21, Carolina 7

First, a shout-out to Bucky, which managed to get by Michigan State, 38-30.  The Badgers are 4-0, and I think even HDD would have to be impressed. 

Arlington Heights’ version of Donnell Dickerson this year is a young man by the name of Marquis Jackson.  According to the write-up from the Startlegram, Jackson…

caught three long touchdown passes and ran for 52 yards as a Wildcat-formation quarterback to steal the spotlight from Dunbar’s blue-chip wide receiver, Darius White.

Jackson, a 6-foot-1, 200-pound junior, no doubt worked his way up in the minds of recruiters, including perhaps Texas assistant coach Major Applewhite, in attendance to watch White.

Not bad – but the view from here is that he oughta go to TCU.

Well, I was  gonna say, “As was the case two years ago, Temple proved too much for UBuffalo…”  Then I realized that I made a minor faux pas  on that recap – the Bulls actually got creamed by Rutgers.

But like that Rutgers game two years ago, this one was over at halftime.  Zach Maynard threw 4 interceptions, one of them a pick-six, and James Nixon took a kickoff return back 95 yards for another score as Temple beat UBeefalo for the first time in nearly 40 years.

Naaman Roosevelt caught 8 of Maynard’s 26 completions (41 attempts) for 120 yards.  But the running game is still MIA, as Thermilus only had 31 yards on 8 carries.  This team positively misses James Starks.

This wasn’t quite  what I meant…but it’ll do.

Last week, I said maybe the Cornhuskers should ditch the West Coast offense for the old throwback option offense.

Instead, they wore their old throwback jerseys that are as old as I am – no, seriously – they are, literally – and got the expected squash against a I-AA opponent.

Zac Lee was 15-18 for 238 yards and a score, and Roy Helu Jr rumbled for 83 yards on 15 carries.  The Blackshirt defense contributed two scores on a fumble recovery in the end zone and a pick-six.

Told you the Cornhuskers were pissed. 

UPDATE:  Denizen & fellow blogger/PFWer HDD correctly points out that Lou-La is, in fact, a Division I-A school, out of the Sun Belt conference.

T-BONE MCMANX:  There’s a difference?

VENOMOUS:  Hush, you… 

Speaking of TCU…now that’s  more like it.

I’ll be honest with you guys:  I didn’t follow the game like I normally would, because I was certain the Frogs were going to blow it and let the Tiger receivers run right through them.

But TCU – well, let’s let ESPN tell you about it:

The Horned Frogs lived up to their reputation as rock-solid defenders. They held Clemson to 117 yards in the second half and stopped the Tigers twice on fourth-quarter drives inside the TCU 20.

“Our defense has played great. It’s nice to have them on our team,” [QB Andy] Dalton said. “On offense, you don’t want to have games 14-10. But it’s nice to come out with wins like that.”

I wouldn’t complain too much about this one, Andy.  They’re not ranked, but like you guys, Clemson’s a damned  good team at home.

Dalton accounted for 312 yards all by himself, going 17-26-226 and calling his own number 19 times for 86 yards.

With about five minutes left in the game, this was my recap:

At this rate, Jerry’s Folly™ is gonna set the record for the world’s largest mausoleum.

Against an 0-2 team with an even more immobile quarterback than the one just benched in Tampa Bay, the Cowgirls laid yet another egg.

That’s “egg” as in “goose egg”.  That’s “goose egg” as in the one they laid in the first half against a defense on which the Falcons & Beagles seemed to have no problem scoring.  Their best shot came during their first drive of the game, where the offensive line’s inability to protect Romo and the resulting sack led to a field-goal attempt.  Which Nick Folk promptly missed.

In the third quarter, the C’Girls had the ball inside the two, with two downs to punch it in.  Third down got one yard.  Fourth down, goal – rookie tight end John Phillips flinches.  Seven points turns into three.  (They would finally put together a subsequent drive for a touchdown later in the third.)

In the fourth quarter, Jason Garrett suffered the Mother Of All Brain Farts™.  Inside the one, second & goal, he calls two fade routes, both of which Romo overthrows (the second one extremely miserably), rather than ram it down the Panthers’ throats.  The C’girls settle for another three.

In fact, the only thing the C’girls seemed to do well all night long was run the ball, which makes Garrett’s calls all the more puzzling.

Meanwhile, the Cowgirls own Swiss Cheese Secondary™ continues to allow opposing quarterbacks to play pitch-and-catch, and the front seven continues to put up only token resistance.  Jake Delhomme was pressured only once during the first half, and it appears that we’re finally figuring out just how valueable Greg Ellis was to this team, as replacement and first-round bust Anthony Spencer hasn’t done shit from the other side.  (They finally got their first sack of the year in the third quarter – by Jay Ratliff.  As in nose tackle Jay Ratliff.)  A 74-yard TD pass from Delhomme would get called back on a penalty.

At that point, Terrence Newman intercepted a Delhomme pass and ran it in, then Tashard Choice went around right tackle Marc Colombo for the two-point conversion.

On the ensuing possession, Victor Butler stripped the ball from Delhomme, and Jason Hatcher recovered, giving Jerry Jones his first win in his new playhouse.  And all after I’d predicted that Carolina would rip Dallas to shreds.

Like I said – it feels pretty damned good to be wrong sometimes.

This week:  4-1.  Overall:  15-8.

We’ll cover the concept of the “trap game” when the PFW reconvenes on Friday.  See you then.

William Safire, probably the most conservative of all the NY Slimes  writers, died yesterday of pancreatic cancer.  Mr. Safire was 79.

His Slimes  obit carries the following (and I’d always wondered from whence this came; now, I know):

And from 1979 until earlier this month, he wrote “On Language,” a New York Times Magazine column that explored written and oral trends, plumbed the origins and meanings of words and phrases, and drew a devoted following, including a stable of correspondents he called his Lexicographic Irregulars.

The columns, many collected in books, made him an unofficial arbiter of usage and one of the most widely read writers on language. It also tapped into the lighter side of the dour-looking Mr. Safire: a Pickwickian quibbler who gleefully pounced on gaffes, inexactitudes, neologisms, misnomers, solecisms and perversely peccant puns, like “the president’s populism” and “the first lady’s momulism,” written during the Carter presidency.

He could’ve been one of us.  In fact, it’s probably most accurate to say he was one of us even before we  were one of us – he was a blogger even before there was such a thing as blogging.

There were columns on blogosphere blargon, tarnation-heck euphemisms, dastardly subjunctives and even Barack and Michelle Obama’s fist bumps.

And there were Safire “rules for writers”: Remember to never split an infinitive. Take the bull by the hand and avoid mixing metaphors. Proofread carefully to see if you words out. Avoid clichés like the plague. And don’t overuse exclamation marks!!

Actually, I tend to think he would gotten a chuckle out of OUR USE OF EXCLAMATION POINTS!!!!!!11!!!!ONE!!ELEVENTEENTY!!!~1

William Safire will be greatly missed by those of us here in the Right-o-Sphere™.

The Department of Brain-Dead InJustices™ weighs in with this story about Phelching Phred Phelps getting away with another one.

A federal appeals court on Thursday tossed out a $5 million verdict against protesters who carried signs with inflammatory messages like “Thank God for dead soldiers” outside the Maryland funeral of a U.S. Marine killed in Iraq.

For which the phuckheaded little phaggot and his phat-assed phucknozzles should probably have been beaten within an inch of their pathetic little lives – but I digress.

A three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the signs contained “imaginative and hyperbolic rhetoric” protected by the First Amendment. Such messages are intended to spark debate and cannot be reasonably read as factual assertions about an individual, the court said.

Oh?  So if I said something to the effect of “all former community organizers should be properly ventilated”, I could skate in federal court?  Are the Black-Robed Tyannical Bench Jockeys™ certain  they wanna set that kind of precedent?

A jury in Baltimore had awarded Albert Snyder damages for emotional distress and invasion of privacy. The 2006 funeral of Snyder’s son, Marine Lance Cpl. Matthew Snyder in Westminster, Md., was among many military funerals that have been picketed by members of the fundamentalist Westboro Baptist Church in Kansas.

Albert Snyder’s attorney, Sean E. Summers, said he and his client were disappointed.

“The most troubling fact is it leaves these grieving families helpless,” Summers said. “If you can’t use the civil process, you have no recourse.”

Actually, Mr. Summers, your client – as well as all his Patriot Guard Rider friends – do  have one recourse left to them.  That is, if  they’re willing to exercise that option.

Like the song says…the First Amendment protects you from the government

(NOTE:  I’m bumping this to today because the PFW post didn’t give The Six Or Seven Of You™ a chance to read it in all its glory.

Besides, I’m gonna be busy pretty much all weekend, so I can get posting for today out of the way. (grin)  -DV)

While everyone in the “Fringe Media” (aka MSN aka what Glenn Beck is now referring to them as) was needing more drool bibs from the slopfest that was Al-Obambi’s debut on the United Nitwits stage….back at home this was going on.

Need we say this AGAIN America?

Al-Obambi told us to judge him by who he associates with during the campaign. Wellll, isn’t that just speeehhh-shhhullll…… Let’s see now, he associates with a church leader who advocates that “America be damned”, an avowed Communist, several handfuls of Marxists, and who knows how many social justice advocates and whacko progressives. Lovely crew there Bambi. Just farking lovely.

Now you are going to appoint a sicko-phant that wants nothing more than to ensure that “Heather Has Two Mommies” or that GLAAD be given Cabinet-level status as your “Safe Schools” czar.

Holy W-T-F????

He actually wants someone

…who has advocated promoting homosexuality in schools, written about his past drug abuse, expressed his contempt for religion and detailed an incident in which he did not report an underage student who told him he was having sex with older men.

Once again….HOLY W-T-F!

How difficult is it to understand Leviticus chapter 18? I get it, I’m fairly certain most everyone else reading this gets it too. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure it out (trust me, I know….I have ready access to a whole spaceship full of them down here by the Southern HQ).

I really want to go on an major rant here, but my blood pressure is rapidly approaching explosive levels as it is. At least someone has already called shenanigans on this.

“Jennings was obviously chosen for this job because of the safe schools aspect… defining ‘safe schools’ narrowly in terms of ‘safe for homosexuality’,” Peter Sprigg, a senior fellow at the Family Research Council, told FOXNews.com.

The Generalette (being a teacher herself for many seasons now) has been reading this over my shoulders and appropriately stated that “The government has no business being in education in the first place. Leave teaching to the teachers! And if this is how “safe schools” are going to be defined, then I’m hanging up my teaching license because I WILL NOT be part of any agenda that wants to promote that sort of thing to MY students!” (she’s just a wee bit defensive of her kids)

(Note: You DO NOT want to know what happened when the “messiah” brought his dog and pony show to the schools back on Sept 8.)

November 2, 2010….mark your calendars denizens. Our voice WILL BE heard.

Denizens, as we start an Extended Perfect Football Weekend™ – that is to say, one that starts on a Thursday and ends on a Monday – I have a story here about UOregon coach Chip Kelly.

Seems a disgruntled UO student, mildly peeved after the dismal performance of College Football’s Ugliest Uniforms™ at Boise State Smurf Turf State™, asked for a refund from Coach Kelly.  This enterprising Young Skull Full O’ Mush (a little Rush lingo, there) actually sent the Duck coach an invoice for $439.

And the shocking part is this:  Coach Kelly actually paid it.

Plenty of disgruntled fans have said they wanted their money back after an underwhelming performance.

But how many have made that complaint — and then received a check in the mail, signed by the coach?

Tony Seminary did.

[...]

Seminary, an Oregon alumnus from the Portland area, attended the game in Boise. According to the Web site everydayshouldbesaturday.com, he was so unhappy with what he saw, he sent Ducks coach Chip Kelly an e-mail, with an attached invoice for $439 in travel expenses.

[...]
Sure enough, a check for $439, apparently signed by Kelly, arrived in Seminary’s mailbox, according to the Web site. Seminary was so impressed by the gesture, he returned the check to Kelly with a thank-you note, rather than cashing it.

Lot of class showed there by the good coach.

For his part, Seminary declined to cash the check.  Probably a good thing – it’d set a precedent, and Wade Phillips doesn’t have that much money

Let’s go to the PFW.  My Arlington Heights Yellow Jackets open district play tonight against the Wildcats of R.L. Dunbar.  Dunbar, as y’all may know, is a state basketball powerhouse – but they’re fairly decent in football, too, as evidenced by the massive beatdown they gave Heights last year.  I don’t think it’ll be that lopsided tonight, but I still think the ‘Cats win.

Monday, I promised to clear up a little PFW errata.  Those of you who read the PFW Overview saw me say this regarding TCU:

The schedule is a killer early with road games at both Virginia & Auburn – yeah, that Auburn – during the first three weeks. 1-2 is not out of the question.

Here’s the errata:  It isn’t the Auburn  Tigers the 15th-ranked Horned Frogs are playing – it’s Clemson’s.  Which, if you ask me, is probably worse – Clemson, in my view, is fastar than Auburn (and maybe better this year, too).

The Tigers show up in the rankings under the “Others receiving votes” category, but the game’s in Clemson, SC, this weekend – and that means upwards of 90,000 screaming Tiger fans at Memorial Stadium.  The Frogs are a 2½-point road dog here – and frankly I don’t think it’s gonna be that  close.  Not after the Texas State debacle, anyway.

A three-game losing streak is staring Turner Gill’s UBuffalo Bulls in their collective face Saturday as they square off against the Temple Owls.  The Bulls won last year at home against the Owls, but they’re also a 2½-point road dog this weekend.  Not good.

The fortunes look slightly better for 25th-ranked Nebraska, as the University of Louisiana-Lafayette comes into Lincoln for their annual ass-whipping at the hands of the Cornhuskers.  Bo Pelini can not  be terribly happy after the loss at VaTech last week, and will be taking it out, no doubt, on ULL.

Cowboys Stadium will welcome another national audience Monday night as the ESPN crew of Tirico, Gruden and Jaworski will ooooh and ahhhh, first at the big-ass video board, then at how the Carolina Panthers rip apart the Cowgirl secondary.  Jake Delhomme is supposedly a statue in the pocket – but then again, so was Byron Leftwich.  And the Steve Smith/Muhsin Muhammad receiving combo is slightly  better than what Tampa Bay threw at the ‘Girls two weeks ago.  Look for Carolina to pound another nail into Coach Stay-Puf’s coffin.

10th-ranked Oklahoma is off this week.

We’re back Tuesday for the recap.  In the meantime, Bucky is favored by three at home against Michigan State, which basically means the game’s a toss-up.  The question for HDD this week, therefore, is:  Will Bret Bielema be tossing up his lunch after Bucky lays the expected egg against the Spartans?

Item:  A pair of enterprising young conservatives, James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles, along with conservative Internet news site Breitbart.com, secretly tape ACORN employees in multiple cities offering tips on how to set up a brothel and lie to the IRS about claiming the underage South American girls this brothel would ostensibly employ as “dependants”.  The videos are subsequently aired on the BigGovernment.com site, as well as certain other conservative outlets like the Fox program Hannity.

Item:  As a result, the Census Bureau, planning on subcontracting its function out to ACORN, decides not to.  The IRS also severs ties with the group, and the Imperial Socialist Congress™, in a surprising fit of good sense (for once), votes to defund them.

Item:  Acorn today filed suit against O’Keefe, Giles and Breitbart.com, thereby officially throwing the tar baby smack dab into the briar patch.

Much hilarity is about to ensue as the O’Keefe/Giles/Breitbart team move to engage in a little process known as “discovery”, whereby all of ACORN’s dirty little secrets run the risk of being painfully (for them) exposed.

To quote old Bond nemesis Kamir Khan:  “Let the sport…commence!!!”

I for one can’t wait.

A retired federal judge died last night.  Fellow by the name of Jerry Buchmeyer.

If you don’t know him, you should.  A Peanutdick appointee, he set about to absolutely ruin the city of Dallas, Texas.

He did so using two rulings – one being Walker, et. al. v. Dallas Housing Authority, where he essentially ruled that low-income folks were free to turn whatever upper-middle-class Dallas neighborhoods they could find into their own personal ghettos at will, thus sending property values in those neighborhoods plummeting, ruining homeowners’ investments and causing what the libtards might call “urban sprawl”.  The cities of Plano, Frisco, McKinney and Allen owe their population growth to Jerry Buchmeyer.

He also imposed, against the will of the people, the Williams, et. al. v. City of Dallas decision, where he basically ruled that Congress is unconstitutional, since the proposed 10-4-1 Dallas City Council representation system (10 single-member districts, four super-quadrants, one at-large mayor) – closely resembled that of the United States government. 

(The 10-4-1 system had been proposed – and adopted, I might add – because this jackass found the 8-3 at-large election system also unconstitutional.)

But Buchmeyer subsequently found that 10-4-1 wasn’t good enough either, instead forcing on Dallas a 14-1 system (fourteen single-member, one mayor) which has turned Dallas from a city that worked into one that doesn’t, with 14 little fiefdoms almost always ruled by 14 “emperors” who are the absolute dumbest-assed  shit-for-brains to ever rule a major city – and yes, I’m including Shit-cago in that group.

Normally, I’d recite here the part about “if you can’t say something nice…” and leave it at that.

UPDATE:  On second thought – yeah, maybe I will leave it at that.  I think I’ve communicated what I intended as it is.

_____________________________________________________





That  was an embarrassment.

Arlington Heights 18, Celina 34

at #15 Texas Christian 56, Texas State 21

UBuffalo 17, at Central Florida 23

at #12 Oklahoma 45, Tulsa 0

#19 Nebraska 15, at #14 Virginia Tech 16

at Dallas 31, New York Football Douchebags 33

Before we get started with all the recaps, I have one more score to pass along:

Florida State 54, at #7 BYU 28

Memo to Bronco Mendenhall:  Ain’t quite as easy when your cheap-shot artist Clawson can’t knock the QB out of the game, is it, jackass?! 

The writeup at the Fort Worth Startlegram made note of a muddy field, which put Heights’ passing game at a disadvantage.  Not that it mattered – Celina is still a state powerhouse, and Heights is…well, Heights.  The Jackets kept it close, but two Bobcat touchdowns in the fourth quarter, led by a dominating, multi-back ground game, allowed them to pull away.

Omar Valadez had 196 yards passing in the loss.

Turnovers late cost UBuffalo in this one.  With the Bulls trailing 20-17 and driving, Zach Maynard threw an interception to Golden Knight Derrick Hallman, which led to their final field goal.  Then, with one last chance, Maynard fumbled when he was sacked.

The Bull ground game was once again non-existent, as Brandon Thermilus only managed 36 yards on 12 carries.  Naaman Roosevelt had 9 catches for 76 yards, and Jesse Rack added 5 for 76.

When Sam Bradford graduates, OU need not worry all that much.  Landry Jones will take over very nicely.

Granted, it was against Tulsa – but no school, not even North Texas, has ever given up six touchdown passes to a Sooner team.  Jones’ six TD passes were part of a 336-yard day on 25-37 passing and 529 total yards by the OU offense.

The Sooner defense chipped in with 2 interceptions and one fumble recovery in posting its second straight shutout.

When Bo Pelini took over the Nebraska job, he made the decision to hang onto Bill Callahan’s offensive coordinator and his West Coast offense.

Memo to Bo:  You might want to consider a return to the old, reliable, pound-teams-into-the-ground option game.

Five forays into Hokie territory resulted in five field goals, and Va Tech drove for a touchdown in the last minute of the fourth quarter, scoring with 21 seconds left.  Ball game.

Roy Helu had 169 yards on 28 carries in the loss.

In the AP poll out yesterday, TCU kept its #15 ranking.  And I’ll tell you right now that they were damned lucky to do so.  That pathetically lackluster effort Saturday night against Division 1-AA Texas State should’ve cost them at least one spot, maybe two.

Yes, they scored 56, which they should have.  But they had to score 21 in the fourth quarter to get that 56 – and they gave up 21 total to this outfit when they had no business doing so.  And in sleepwalking through what should have been a laugher, a major flaw has been exposed in the Frog defense – specifically, the return of the Swiss Cheese Secondary™.

Bobcat quarterbacks threw for 219 yards on the Frogs, and it was pretty much pitch-and-catch all night long.  The only reason State didn’t score more is that they occasionally insisted on running the ball, and the TCU run defense is still its stifling self, holding the TSU ground game to 30 yards.

At times, it seemed as if TCU was trying to give the game to the Bobcats.  Dalton threw a pick that TSU eventually converted into a touchdown in the first quarter, then lost a fumble in the fourth deep in their own territory, a bullet that the Frogs narrowly escaped when Jason Teague intercepted a 3rd-down Bobcat pass in the end zone.

On fourth-and-7 of the drive following the pick, TCU stupidly lined up offsides, costing them five.  Then, with at least one TCU fan screaming  at them to watch for the fake punt, the Bobcats pulled the fake anyway – and got 10 out of it.

Guess I should apply to replace Dickie Bump-ass as the defensive coordinator, hm?

Had it not been for Joseph Turner (129 yards on 13 carries), this one would have been far more of a nail biter.  TCU’s lucky to not be 1-1 and the proud possessors of an “awshit” right now.  The way they played, it was a fucking embarrassment.

Get this godforsaken skirt-chasing, golf-playing, doesn’t-give-a-fuck piece-of-shit QB outta here yesterday!

Tony Romo flat-out gave this fucking game away.  And I’m now questioning my ringing endorsement of him as the C’boys answer at quarterback.

Three interceptions led to three Douchebag touchdowns (one was a pick-six).  Another unforced fumble from Felix Jones on a kickoff return led to three more points.

Meanwhile, the Douchebags’ pussy QB, E-why (Wo)manning, played pitch-and-catch with D-bag receivers all night.  The Cowgirls made a fucking star  out of Mario “Smurf” Manningham.  And the Douchebag running game ran over the Cowgirls all night.

So much for Coach Stay-Puf’s “Mr. Fix-It” defensive coordinating.  Fire the fat bastard now, AFAIC, and draft a fucking quarterback who can throw to the correct jerseys once in a fucking while.  To my way of thinking, Romo’s nothing more than Drew Bledsoe who can move a little bit.

This week:  3-4 (yes, I’m counting Fla. State-BYU).  Overall:  11-7.

Now, if TCU plays like they did Saturday night next  week, they will get positively creamed.  When the PFW returns on Thursday, I’ll explain why, and clear up a little errata in the process.

Item:  Dhimmi Kadhr, aka Peanut-dick, accuses Our Hero, Joe Wilson™ of being a closet racist (hat tip:  LC Gaius Lawrenitis Negris over at the Rott).

Former President Jimmy Carter said Tuesday that U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson’s outburst to President Barack Obama during a speech to Congress last week was an act “based on racism” and rooted in fears of a black president.

“I think it’s based on racism,” Carter said in response to an audience question at a town hall held at his presidential center in Atlanta. “There is an inherent feeling among many in this country that an African-American should not be president.”

Uh huh.  Riiiiiiiight.

Item:  Fifty years ago, Dhimmi Khadr was quite the racist himself (hat tip:  Ed Driscoll).

(Minor update:  Broken up for a little better readability.)

When Carter returned to Plains, Georgia, to become a peanut farmer after serving in the Navy, he became a member of the Sumter County School Board, which did not implement the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education decision handed down by the Supreme Court. Instead, the board continued to segregate school children on the streets of Carter’s hometown.

As Laughlin McDonald, director of the ACLU’s Voting Project, relates in his book A Voting Rights Odyssey: Black Enfranchisement in Georgia, Carter’s board tried to stop the construction of a new “Elementary Negro School” in 1956. Local white citizens had complained that the school would be “too close” to a white school. As a result, “the children, both colored and white, would have to travel the same streets and roads in order to reach their respective schools.”

The prospect of black and white children commingling on the streets on their way to school was apparently so horrible to Carter that he requested that the state school board stop construction of the black school until a new site could be found. The state board turned down Carter’s request because of “the staggering cost.”

Carter and the rest of the Sumter County School Board then reassured parents at a meeting on October 5, 1956, that the board “would do everything in its power to minimize simultaneous traffic between white and colored students in route to and from school.” (Emphasis added.)

And yet another case of PotKettleBlack™ rears its ugly head.  And, as usual, it has its roots in the Demoscum Party.

But what can you expect from the party that is in proud possession of the two worst-ever occupants of the White House?

Looks like San Fran Nan Piglousi is starting to realize that, uhhhhh, those very mad-type people over there, uhhhhhh, are kinda, y’know, uhhhhhhhhhhh, armed…”


This is the same Shrieker Of The House™ that accused us (in a roundabout way) of being Nazis because we were supposedly “carrying swastikas”.  This is the same San Fran Nan Piglousi that claims that the CIA “lies to everyone, duh”.  Same Piglousi that loudly proclaimed that she was a “fan of ‘disruptors’”.  Y’know, back then when they were on her  side.

Now?  Not so much.

PotKettleBlackMuch™, O Shrieker?

Methinks she is starting to finally realize that this is not going to end well for her, her supporters or her party.  Methinks she is finally starting to realize that, one way or another, her 15 Minutes Of Fame™ are about to be up, and that the Dustbin of History™ is straight ahead.

Aaaaaaaah, who’m I kidding?  This is Piglousi, remember?

It is  fun to dream, though. 

At least, about her realizing it.  The other part about those 15 minutes of hers being up is actually true.

Especially  the “one way or another” part.

As the Perfect Football Weekend jumps once more into the breach, dear friends…I must request that you stop me if you’ve heard this one before.

Widdle Terri Owens’ team loses.  Widdle Terri Owens isn’t much of a factor in the game.  Widdle Terri Owens refuses to talk to the media afterward.

OZY MCCOOL:  Does kinda bring back memories of the last three years.

VENOMOUS:  Aren’t you dead?

OZY MCCOOL:  Well, the character is.  There are always flashbacks, though.

KORRIOTH:  Point.

OZY MCCOOL:  Besides, my agent’s in talks with your executive producer on a new role for me.

VENOMOUS:  Oh, okay.  Carry on.

OZY MCCOOL:  (salutes)

Owens, who missed most of the exhibition season with a sprained toe

MERLIN:  Yeah, that’s our Widdle Terri, awright.

Anyway, Buffalo will learn, I’m guessing.  The over/under is 3-9 before the light suddenly comes on.

On ot the PFW.  Last year, my Arlington Heights Yellow Jackets were destroyed by the Celina (TX) Bobcats in their backyard.

This year, they get to destroy us in ours, tonight at 7:30.  Gimme Heights and 80.

Continuing a theme of it being Bobcat Week here in PFW-land, Saturday’s the home opener for Gary Patterson’s 15th-ranked Texas Christian Horned Frogs as they take on the Texas State Bobcats.

This could conceivably be called the Jim Wacker Bowl – the connection is that Wacker coached Texas State (then known as Southwest Texas State – or, as I liked to call ‘em, “Sweat State”), immediately prior to coming to TCU to revive the program, and I can imagine that Sweat State’s still a little steamed at us for snatching him up.  They were, after all, winning national D-II championships under Wacker, and they’ve been pretty irrelavant since then.  Not that it’ll matter – take the Froggies in a squash.

Also Saturday, Turner Gill’s UBuffalo Bulls take another sunshine-filled road trip – this one to Central Florida.  Central’s favored by 4½, but then UTEP was favored by eight, so we’ll see.

Tulsa’s Golden Hurricane plays the latest whipping boy for 12th-ranked Oklahoma’s post-BYU rage, as they’ll invade Memorial Stadium.  Losing to the Fucking Mormons took a toll on Vegas’ confidence in the Sooners, as an almost-guranteed 25-point handicap has been whittled down to 17½ (Rice, by comparison is a 32½-point road dog to Okie State), but while Tulsa has  been known to give OU a scare from time to time, there should still be enough in their tank to win comfortably.

Bo Pelini has the Nebraska Cornhuskers up to number 18 in the USA Today poll this week, but that’s in severe danger this week as they travel to 13th-ranked (AP) Virginia Tech and the 2nd-Ugliest Uniforms In College Football™.  VA Tech’s a 5-point favorite – and, given their speed, I think it’s gonna be a lot more than that.  Bo will have to play major ball-control if he wants to keep this one close.

Sunday night, my fair burgh will welcome Al Michaels, Cris Collinsworth, Keith Overbite and the rest of Football Night in America as the Dallas C’boys host the New York Football Douchebags.  Eli Manning’s still a pansy-ass who folds under pressure, and Widdle Brandi Jackoff is still an oversized pussy.  And, unlike Texas Stadium, if Brandi tries to knock anything off the wall this time, I suspect the Douchebags will get a hefty bill for his trouble.

We’re back Monday for the recap.  In the meantime, Bucky hosts the Wofford College Terriers, and Vegas doesn’t even have the game rated.  The question for HDD, therefore, is:  Does that mean I should take Bucky and whatever points I’m offered?

Denizens, I got nothing tonight, and I need to crank out the PFW post, so the Mothergoose from Denton rides to the rescue with this piece of Damn Fine Stuff™.

AN ACTUAL CRAIG’S LIST PERSONALS AD

To the Guy Who Tried to Mug Me in Downtown Savannah night before last.

Date: 2009-05-27, 1:43 a.m. E.S.T.

I was the guy wearing the black Burberry jacket that you demanded that I hand over, shortly after you pulled the knife on me and my girlfriend, threatening our lives. You also asked for my girlfriend’s purse and earrings. I can only hope that you somehow come across this rather important message.

First, I’d like to apologize for your embarrassment; I didn’t expect you to actually crap in your pants when I drew my pistol after you took my jacket. The evening was not that cold, and I was wearing the jacket for a reason. My girlfriend had just bought me that Kimber Model 1911 .45 ACP pistol for my birthday, and we had picked up a shoulder holster for it that very evening. Obviously you agree that it is a very intimidating weapon when pointed at your head … isn’t it?!

I know it probably wasn’t fun walking back to wherever you’d come from with that brown sludge in your pants. I’m sure it was even worse walking bare-footed since I made you leave your shoes, cell phone, and wallet with me. [That prevented you from calling or running to your buddies to come help mug us again].

After I called your mother, or “Momma” as you had her listed in your cell, I explained the entire episode of what you’d done. Then I went and filled up my gas tank as well as those of four other people in the gas station, — on your credit card. The guy with the big motor home took 150 gallons and was extremely grateful!

I gave your shoes to a homeless guy outside Vinnie Van Go Go’s, along with all the cash in your wallet. [That made his day!]

I then threw your wallet into the big pink “pimp mobile” that was parked at the curb … after I broke the windshield and side window and keyed the entire driver’s side of the car.

Later, I called a bunch of phone sex numbers from your cell phone. Ma Bell just now shut down the line, although I only used the phone for a little over a day now, so what ‘s going on with that? Earlier, I managed to get in two threatening phone calls to the DA’s office and one to the FBI, while mentioning President Obama as my possible target.

The FBI guy seemed really intense and we had a nice long chat (I guess while he traced your number etc.).

In a way, perhaps I should apologize for not killing you … but I feel this type of retribution is a far more appropriate punishment for your threatened crime. I wish you well as you try to sort through some of these rather immediate pressing issues, and can only hope that you have the opportunity to reflect upon, and perhaps reconsider, the career path you’ve chosen to pursue in life. Remember, next time you might not be so lucky. Have a good day!

Thoughtfully yours,

Alex

P.S. Remember this motto … An armed society makes for a more civil society!

Now that’s  a personals ad.
