Okay, this is going to be a fragmented rant. Sick of cheaters. Sick of Lance Armstrong. Sick of athletes speaking. Athletes shouldn't speak unless it is about their performance or their team's performance. Don't talk about moving out of California to escape the high State Income Tax cavalierly to reporters after a round of golf, Phil Mickelson. That was a no win. He had to pedal back immediately after he took the wrath of the people. Chris Culliver, 49er, started speaking his homophobic opinions to media types in New Orleans. Ignorant, disgraceful, and another no win. Happy that the 49ers organization got right on it to dispute his statements. The coach and players for the 49ers had well put and thoughtful statements. Maybe he'll be traded or forced to go to tolerance seminars. The funny thing about the NFL...there must be gay players, but they are so closeted that we don't know who they are. There has to be the same percentage of gays in sports as there are in the world, but silence. Too bad. Too bad all around.
I am totally sick of Cialis, Viagra, and, now, Low T. Who cares? It's between you and your doctor, isn't it? Why do we have to have the constant onslaught of commercials to think about a man's performance, virility, and manliness? I remember when men/boys were horrified by tampon commercials, now we have to think about functioning penises all the time! I have to hold on tight because there will be a slew of ads before, during, and after the Super Bowl on Sunday for men's performance drugs. I am fairly certain that the first time I saw the Cialis bathtub ad was during football. I always felt uncomfortable with young men and teenagers in the room because they have hardly been able to enjoy a functioning penis and then they have to start worrying about when it's going to stop functioning. The men in the commercials are not old men. They look like their Dads or teachers. Ugh! I never knew that there were so many non-functioning men. From where I sit, it would be the exception, but with the amount of money spent....
Wayne LaPierre needs to stop talking. He sounds like an out of touch, crazy ass leader of a group of gun loving crazies. His objections for gun reform are unyielding and ridiculous. I have said it before. Someone has to follow the money. The NRA must make a lot of money off each and every gun sale. It's the only reasonable answer and then it is a complete conflict of interest. Everyday this week there has been a gun tragedy in a school, an office, or on the streets. The members of the NRA must take back reason and control from Wayne LaPierre.
Sunday is Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans between the San Francisco 49ers, coached by Jim Harbaugh, and the Baltimore Ravens, coached by John Harbaugh. It should be a great game. I, without any doubt, want the 49ers to win out right. I hope that it is a great game with the Niners in the lead comfortably. Don't want too much stress. Beyonce at halftime. Whether she lip syncs or not, it should be entertaining. Alicia Keys singing the National Anthem. I am expecting a great game. Enjoy the weekend wherever you are and whatever you do!
