|Today is Guam Liberation Day and I would like to explain to you why it is important.|
But that just leads us to today's post which I do from time to time...Asshole of the Week! We've got some damn fine nominees this time.
Chris Kluwe! You may remember Kluwe as a mediocre punter for the Vikings but more than likely you know him as a trouble-making gay rights activist. The Vikings cut him (he was a distraction AND he sucked...a really double threat!) so he decided to scorch the earth and burn every bridge leading back to the NFL by outing a ton of Vikings coaches as bigots. Now he is suing the Vikes and going on massive Twitter rants about whatever. All I know is that if you want to be outspoken, you better be prepared to deal with the consequences. Clearly, he is not. And another thing, if you are going to get up on your high horse and point fingers at a coach who wants to nuke all the faggots, you better not be telling Jerry Sandusky jokes yourself. Sorry, Chris, you douche bag, but mocking gay people is way more tolerable than laughing at child rape. Go fuck yourself.
Chris Broussard! When does ESPN just take this guy off the air already? Enough is enough. I believe it was Drew who said a few weeks ago that Broussard's only "sources" are his church group and that is probably true. HE. KNOWS. NOTHING. We got to spend all weekend hearing about these "Wiggins is now on the table" rumors while reporters way better than him have adamantly refuted that story. In FACT, the last offer that the Cavs made was Tristan/Bennett/a first round pick which is a far cry from what Broussard would have you believe. Chris Broussard is absolutely terrible at his job. This can't be said enough.
The Houston Astros! I'm not sure how familiar all of you are with how the MLB Draft works but it is strange. So they draft kids and then have a 5-6 week window to sign them. Once that window closes, they lose all rights to that kid and he goes to college or wherever but NOT into the pros (this is a very weird system). Houston had the first pick for the third year in a row and drafted HS LHP Brady Aiken #1. High school pitchers never get drafted in the top 5, let alone first, so you know that this kid is bananas. An 18 year old kid with a 97 mph heater and ELITE breaking pitches would fit that bill. MLB picks are slotted financially so the money shouldn't really be an issue. But Houston yanked their offer this week and cut the 6.5 million dollar signing bonus in half citing "elbow concerns". First of all, did you not have these concerns 5 weeks ago? Second, doctors can fix whatever might be wrong. Third, WHY DID YOU DRAFT HIM THEN!!! The clock ran out so Aiken is no longer Astros property. Houston just punted the #1 overall pick. That is AWFUL business and they are getting fileted by the media as they should. Maybe they thought that they were about to pay Brady Cakesen? I don't know. Either way, this defines "epic fail".
Colby Lewis! Read this and try not to SMDH while you are doing so. This is embarrassing. What a cocksucker. HOW DARE HE TRY TO GET ON BASE.
People That Dislike Les Miles! Lester is turning an American treasure. Every time that he meets with the media these days, it is pure gold. Him talking about the World Cup at SEC Media Day was just the best. How can anyone hate this guy? I love Les Miles.
Harold Reynolds! During the All Star Game, She$ said "Who is this guy? He is really annoying." Of course she was referring to Reynolds who is rotten and should not be on TV. Another big fuck you to Fox for not even mentioning Tony Gwynn. How hard would it be to do an In Memoriam segment in between innings during the ASG? That would be really cool IMO. But back to Harold, I never thought that I would miss Tim McCarver yet here I am.
So who is the Asshole of the Week? I'm giving it to Kluwe because someone who is an advocate for tolerance should be aware that there is going to be backlash to strong takes. Plus, he appears to be pro Jerry Sandusky with his love for gays and disdain for child innocence. Bold stance there.
