This actually happened a while back, but it seems that not all Federal judges have drank the “marriage equality” koolaid. Check this out.

Since January, we have had five people begin worshipping with us who moved from that delightful place you have always called “North Ice”., just in case you are interested.

Denizens, we launch into this week’s edition of the Perfect Football Weekend with yet another blurb from the Penn State debacle – this time with the No Cojones At All administration coming >< this close to stepping into a pile of shit up to its collective head.
“A newly disclosed email from the NCAA’s top lawyer documents just how close Penn State came to having its football program shut down due to the Jerry Sandusky child abuse scandal.
It says the school’s “cooperation and transparency” saved the program.”
(Sorry for the formatting – looks like WordPress is vomiting up a lot of my coding tonight.)
That would be the “cooperation and transparency” into which it was browbeaten & cowed, if you’ll recall.
“The email from lawyer Donald Remy to a school attorney was attached to a court filing Thursday, as the NCAA battles with two Pennsylvania officials over penalties that were imposed on Penn State.
The email establishes that on July 17, 2012, six days before the Penn State sanctions were announced, a majority on the NCAA executive committee favored the “death penalty,” shutting down the football program.”
And again, this is the NCAA threatening to shut down the football program for the actions of people who weren’t even employed there, simply because they had certain access to certain buildings, where they performed activities that were not even sanctioned by the university, that were eventually dealt with by school personnel in accordance with Pennsylvania law.
This would be akin to Arlington Heights losing its football program for me entering the school building and performing some illegality, any illegality, that was arbitrarily & capriciously deemed to be _¡qué horrible!_
Damn good thing I’m not the PSU chancellor. My lawsuit against the NCAA would have started at ten (10) digits, and gone from there. (For the pussies in the Church of the SubTarded, that’s one-extra-extra-extra-extra large, or one billion.)
Once again…fuck you, NCAA.
Very quickly now, on with the football. As I write this, my Arlington Heights Yellow Jackets, fresh off a perfect season, are in the bi-district playoffs against Burleson Centennial HS down south of Realm HQ, in Mansfield. As of this writing, Heights is up 7-0, so we’ll keep an eye on that.
Tomorrow, Gary Patterson takes his fourth-ranked TCU Horned Frogs – yes, that’s right; if the season ended today, the Frogs would be in the playoffs – up to Lawrence to play Rock Chalk. The Tadpoles are a solid 28-point favorite here, so unless they lay a complete egg, I don’t see them breaking _that_ much of a sweat.
Sunday, Andy Dalton’s Cincinnati Kittycats – fresh off that humiliation at the hands of Cleveland (Cleveland?), try to snap out of it vs. the Saints at the Superdome in N’awlins. This isn’t the best place to try to snap out of a funk, but N’awlins isn’t playing all that well, either (they’re one game under .500), so even though they’re a 7-point favorite at home, Cincy’s got a shot here.
Wild card games are as follows: *Oklahoma* traveling to Lubbock & taking out their Baylor frustrations on TTech (sorry, Generalette), #16 Nebraska going up to Madison to get pounded on by #20 *Wisconsin* (Joel Stave’s not quite as crappy a quarterback as Tommy Armstrong), and top-ranked Mississippi State running into fifth-ranked *Alabama’s* buzzsaw (sorry, Vicar).
We’re back next week with the recap. Maybe it’ll be Monday – who knows?

Jenna said what?
Did she mention me by name, or was it just kinda like was she just talking in general…?
She mentioned you by name, dumbass. She said you were a little metrosexual dickweed, and she never wanted to see you again.
There. Happy now?
This is why I never patronize Sonic anymore. Take the hint, Sonic.

As we launch another edition of the Perfect Football Weekend, Denizens, we are compelled to revisit the railroading & virtual crucifixion of one Joseph Paterno, former Pennsylvania State University head football coach, and how he was made to account, drawn & quartered, for basically performing within the scope of his job.
In this column, we are now finding out that even the NCAA knew that it didn’t have the legal authority to hand down any sanctions on either Paterno or the PSU program.
New internal NCAA emails offer a glimpse into how the organization questioned its own decision-making leading up to the unprecedented sanctions levied against Penn State in 2012, saying at one point it was banking on the fact that the university “is so embarrassed they will do anything.”
Seven pages of emails — from July 13 to July 21, 2012 — were filed Sunday as part of a Pennsylvania state senator’s lawsuit against the NCAA.
NCAA president Mark Emmert announced the sanctions against the university July 23, 2012.
“Delicate issue, but how did PSU gain a competitive advantage by what happened?” Kevin Lennon, the NCAA vice president for academic and membership affairs, wrote July 14, 2012. “Even if discovered, reported, and actions taken immediately by the administration, not sure how this would have changed anything from a competitive advantage perspective.”
Julie Roe Lach, then the NCAA’s top enforcement officer, responded to Lennon about 75 minutes later. She told him that “Mark” — believed to be Emmert — thought Penn State did gain a competitive advantage, although she and several others disagreed with that point.
“I characterized our approach to PSU as a bluff when talking to Mark yesterday afternoon after the call,” she wrote.
“We find it deeply disturbing that NCAA officials in leadership positions would consider bluffing one of their member institutions, Penn State, to accept sanctions outside of their normal investigative and enforcement process,” the university said in a statement released Wednesday.
So, basically, the NCAA intimidated Penn State into firing JoePa and engaging in its own little bit of self-flagellation.
Now, there’s not a single one here who is saying that what Jerry Sandusky did wasn’t wrong. What I’m saying is that neither PSU nor Paterno bore any responsibility in the matter (save for State firing Paterno & turning him into some sort of pariah), and should not have been held accountable. And for the NCAA to have done exactly that, through illegal means, smacks of the worst sort of fascism.
Fuck you & the horse you rode in on, NCAA.
On with the football. Another early start to the PFW, but this time it’s Andy Dalton’s Cincinnati Bengals at home versus cross-state rival Cleveland for first place in the AFC Central.
Normally I wouldn’t give Brian Hoyer much chance on the road, but Cincy’s defense isn’t exactly the ’93 Cowboys. Game goes to whomever has the ball last.
Last game of the regular season for Phil Young and my Arlington Heights Yellow Jackets Friday evening, this one against the Western Hills Cougars (aka the Alma Mater of the First Wife) – and, given what’s been done to them this year…well, call it overconfidence if you must, but Heights could play it’s third-string all game and rout these guys.
How bad is Western Hills? Their only victory is against North Side. By six points.
South Hills destroyed them on an Aledo scale, 83-7.
Trimble Tech, whom Heights smashed last week, 64-0? The week prior, they beat Hills 60-18.
This will be the first unbeaten season in football for Heights in a long time. How long? Don’t know for sure, but I think I was going there at the time.
Saturday, it’ll be Gary Patterson’s sixth-ranked TCU Horned Frogs at home versus Bill Snyder’s seventh-ranked Kansas State Wildcats. The purple team will win.
TCU needs this one. Get it, and it’s all but a fait accompli that they win the Big XII. They’re home, so I feel better than I otherwise would, but it’ll still be close.
The wildcard games this week will be Marshall at Southern Miss (sorry, Vicar), #23 West Virginia taking out their frustrations versus TU (Charlie Strong runs into another buzzsaw), and #20 Georgia destroying Kentucky (the Dawgs are not happy about losing to Florida, and the Wildcats are gonna be made to pay).
We’re back next week with a recap. With any luck, it’ll actually be Monday.

This commercial has always pissed me off.
Somebody please tell me why this girl doesn’t throw the apron back in her metrosexual boyfriend’s face, kick both boyfriend and compadre (wingman?) in the crotch, pack whatever things of hers are there and leave said boyfriend’s sorry ass?
Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?

Well, the MSU Bulldogs are now 8 and 0 against Arkansas, Air Force destroyed Army, and Wisconsin beat Rutgers. In addition Ole Miss lost to Auburn and the Georgia lost to Florida. All in all, it was a good football day. Unfortunately, Mrs. Vicar’s Nittany Lions also lost, and had MSU lost, she would not have been a happy camper.

What on earth is going on with your sorry excuse for a mayor?
Posted by David Hartung @ 7:12
Looking at the vegas.com site it seems that those teams I like are all favourites, with Mississippi State being an eleven point favourite over Arkansas. We shall see what happens when this day is done.

Denizens, as we begin this edition of the Perfect Football Weekend, we are amused that Joseph “Lightfingers” Randle simply Can. Not. Keep. His. Mouth. Shut.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant and running back Joseph Randle got into an argument as the media was entering the practice field Friday.
Bryant did not divulge what the argument was about when asked after practice, but a source said it was related to a comment Randle made during the running back’s arrest earlier this month in reference to a July 2012 incident involving Bryant and the receiver’s mother.
“Dez didn’t miss no games for slapping his mama,” Randle said in the video, obtained by KDFW-TV, that was taken while he was being booked after stealing underwear and a tester bottle of cologne form a Dillard’s in Frisco, Texas.
Randle was wondering aloud if he’d be suspended by the team for the shoplifting arrest.
Bastard shoulda been cut – especially after coughing up the ball the other night against the Foreskins.
In the video, Randle also made a comment about Josh Brent, who was convicted of vehicular manslaughter for his involvement in an accident that led to the death of teammate and friend Jerry Brown in 2012.
“Josh Brent, he’s still up in the locker room. He was driving drunk. That’s stupid,” Randle said.
Randle made other flippant remarks while being booked, including asking a female jail employee if she would give him a massage if he paid her $100 and asking why his height and weight were not on his mug shot.
Asshole thinks he’s a hot shit, when he’s not even among the top three running backs at Valley Ranch.
Let’s get on with the football. My Arlington Heights Yellow Jackets, having all but won District 7-5A, have to fight against a letdown tonight when they play the Trimble Tech Bulldogs here in a little bit. South Hills handled the Green & White pretty easily a couple of weeks ago, so I expect Heights to roll here.
Tomorrow afternoon, Gary Patterson’s seventh-ranked TCU Horned Frogs have what will probably be their toughest test, as they’re in Morgantown to play the 20th-ranked West Virginia Mountaineers.
How tough? WVA gave Baylor what should have been their second consecutive loss – had it not been for the LIttle Darlings′ hand-picked zebras a couple weeks ago.
TCU’s a 5½-point road fave, which means it’ll come down to Jaden Overkrom, most likely.
Sunday, it should be a near-walkover for the Cincy Bengals, as Andy Dalton’s crew hosts the worst team in the NFL, namely the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Running back Giovani Bernard is out for the Black & Orange; hopefully, that won’t make much of a difference. AJ Green returns, though, so that should get them through.
The wildcards this week will be 18th-ranked Oklahoma taking out their frustrations on Iowa State, 3rd-ranked Auburn at 4th-ranked Ole Miss (I’m going out on a limb on this one), and Indiana for the upset special at Michigan (trust me, sportz fanz – Brady Hoke is on his way out).
With any luck, we’ll have a timely recap this week. In the meantime…the crumb-crunchers are about to start knocking at my door, so…
