OK, I've got a bit of a problem here. I'm writing this up as I usually do, at 10 pm on Sunday night. The difference this week is that I had to drive to the office to do it. You see, there are currently over 300,000 people in the Columbus area without power and, lo and behold, I am one of them. In fact, the only football that I've seen today is the first 3 quarters of the Titans/Bengals suckfest. I am pissed off. I've been blacked out (and not the good kind either) since 3 pm today and, get this, AEP, those fine douche bags that control the shit, say that we could be without power for possibly the next SEVEN DAYS. You've got to be fucking kidding me. So I'm not sure how the blog is going to go this week but I hope that we aren't affected too badly. Because this sucks. You know what else sucks? Having all of your bedding still in the dryer and possibly having to sleep just on the mattress the next few nights. Awesome. Fuck you, AEP. Fuck you, Gustav, Ike, and whatever the hell other hurricane that this shit is a result of. This is the worst thing ever. But anyway, as Queen once sang, the show must go on. Let's address a few topics from the football world...
Ohio State sure does enjoy embarrassing themselves - Now THAT was fun. O-VER-RA-TED!!! A complete destruction of the local joke. After the raping, I had Damman say to me at the bar, "Can you just explain to me how we always have a top 5 recruiting class yet never can compete in the big games?" Or something like that, he and I were both pretty blitzed. And it's a damn good question. The answer is simple...Jim Tressel is a very good coach, but he isn't great and it's time that you all admit that. If you look at Saturday's game and the LSU and Florida games, the underlying issue is that his team wasn't ready to play on any of those nights. You can keep winning the Big Ten all you want to, wake me when you can beat a good team. Nice job, Lame Lauranitis for coming back to win it all only to see your draft stock plummet out of the first round with that one shitty performance. Same with the gaping hole of Alex Boone and Marcus Freeman. Good job, guys, way to waste a year of your lives.
But as I told Damman, so what, you got beat by a better team. You can still win the conference. You can still run the table. You can still go back to southern Cali and potentially get a rematch in the Rose Bowl where they will kill you again. A national championship run is over but that doesn't mean that the season has to be considered a failure. Well, it will be over if The Todd Boeckman Statue of Doom remains the starter. The moral of the story is, it was great being the only fucker in a room of 20-25 people with USC colors on. I am fucking awesome.
Michigan Fans are losers - Losing to Notre Dame is bad enough (eventhough the injury to Chaz Weis was hilarious. I so wanted him to get carted into the locker room on a forklift), but after the game I know for a fact that two PROUD Big Blue fans made quick turnarounds. They both just so happen to comment here every once in a while. Glick and Jon both celebrated a loss to Jimmy Claussen by saying that they would be rooting for Ohio State that night "in support of the conference". How about you support the rivalry like a grown man? You two are a disgrace.
NFL Notes - As I said earlier, no fucking power. Here's what I can gather from following the scores on Buke's cell phone:
*Don't sleep on the Redskins yet, a nice come from behind win today against who many think will win the South. Congrats on the first win, Jim Zorn Boner.
*I'm very happy that I made that bet with Glick on who will have more wins this year, the Skins or the Falcons; it's going to be a long year for young Ryan.
*The Bengals, Lions, and Rams are the three worst teams in the league.
*The Seahawks are terrible.
*Suck on that, Brett Favre. The Patriots are still better than you and I love it.
*This Bills team is the best team in the history of the NFL.
*The Chargers are racking up the bizarre losses, aren't they? Jay Cutler is looking pretty damn good thus far.
*Welcome to the NFL, Darren McFadden.
That does it for tonight. I need to get home and sleep in my pitch black bedroom and pray that my cellphone alarm actually wakes me up. This fucking sucks. I'm the victim here, not all of those people in Texas. Cowboys fans deserve bad things, not innocent bloggers.
