So yesterday I’m at the Sprint store getting a new phone. I’m not picky. I walk right in, see the phone I want, some sales cock comes over and asks if I have questions, and I’m all like “No, ring that bitch up…I got shit to do”. It was the easiest sale of all time. While iPhones tend to be all the rage these days, I am a simple man. I’m a Blackberry guy. I know how to use that and it offers the few things that I actually need from a phone. I don’t need an iPhone and I don’t want one. If you have one, that’s great because no one cares.
Anyway, so the salesman is ringing me up and tells me that the phone is $350 with in store savings of $250. I don’t get this. This sort of thing serves no purpose. Why not just say it’s $100 then? Or just go absurd and say that this phone costs $10K but I’m getting it for $100. Make me feel like a big shot. Now I understand why they do rebates (because some morons will forget to send it in) but it still pisses me off. Rebates are unnecessary homework. The cell phone industry is a piece of shit. And this mini-angry rant has started a firestorm or angry rants that will comprise the rest of this post.
*How the fuck has Scott Arniel not been fired yet? Granted, every player on the Jackets is having their worst seasons ever, but the record is 9-23-5 which I believe is the worst in the sport. Six coaches have already been fired but for some reason the worst one has not. In fact, he keeps getting votes of confidence from the GM! The CBJ fucking piss me off so much. They can’t score. They can’t defend. Rick Nash doesn’t even try or care anymore. Bunch of faggots is what they are.
*How annoying are those people on your Facebook feed that wrote posts about how the understand the meaning of CHRISTmas. With caps on Christ. Fucking lame. Those people are retarded. I actually celebrated christMAAS this year which is an appreciation of former Yankees bust prospect, Kevin Maas. But you don’t see me bragging about it.
*For those that listen to 97.1 The Fan, which commercials are the worst: Half Price Books? Three-C Body Shop? BW3’s Table-gating? Or DeMari Trucks. I vote for DeMari Trucks because they go from the son talking about deals on trucks and it morphs into some sort of weirdo football game where the grandson is trying to get his grandpa to run a belly option. It makes no sense and that whole family has to be inbred. I feel bad for The Torg. Who writes these spots anyway?
*Speaking of crappy radio this week, anyone listening to “The Black Herd”? I never thought that I’d miss Colin, but Mike Hill and Michael Smith seem to think that they are filling in on 106th and Park. Awful radio.
*Yesterday, The Black Herd was debating who the best team in the NBA is…after two games. This went on for 2 full segments. Back to ESPNews for you, Mike Hill. You are terrible.
*What is the point of Tony Siragusa?
*I think that the NFL is the most near perfect sport around, but they need to do something about the rules. They need to bring back the 5 yard facemask and stop making pass interference a spot foul. If the refs aren’t going to let defenders hit QBs AND WRs anymore, then there has to be something given to the defense.
*Brady, you were ripping Bengals fans earlier in the week and I thought of a great comparison: they are just like this year’s Indians fans. No faith that the ownership actually cares about the team and waiting for the other shoe to drop. Goddamn I’m smart!
*I don’t particularly care about the Pro Bowl (even though I have won money betting on the NFC the last three years and still cherish DeAngelo Hall’s MVP from last season), but I’m getting sick and damn tired of London Fletcher getting screwed. Fletcher has 163 tackles (leads the league by a LOT) and hasn’t missed one damn game in 13 years. Patrick Willis missed the last month. Brian Urlacher has 92 tackles this year on a sub-.500 team. Stop fucking over my boy, London! And how the fuck did Philip Rivers and Eli make it?
That’s going to do it for the rants today. Feel free to add your own in the comments if something is grinding your gears. Be sure to tune in tomorrow for the last post of 2011. The topic? Oh, no biggie, just revealing THE MONEY SHOT MAN OF THE YEAR.
