The National Fuckhead League

Posted in Gridiron, Sports TV at 2:42 pm by

I was waiting at the barbershop last night and had the misfortune of sitting through at least half of a 90 minute (!) ESPN NFL Draft preview program. In addition to the usual attempts at mystifying a glorified slave auction, there was much hand-wringing over last night’s announcement that 420-friendly Dolphins RB Ricky Williams’ suspension for the whole of 2006 had been upheld.

One by one, beefy, no-necked white dudes skilled at talking with their hands waxed poetic about Ricky as a bad teammate and all the unspeakable things he had done to the Miami franchise.

I can only presume that a future installment of the same program will have a slightly different take on Brett Favre’s decision to play for the Packers next season. Favre being the ultimate gamer and all, not at all the short of person who could be accused of putting his own interests in front of those of the team, holding a club hostage, etc.

    I once was in the barber shop when a call came through regarding the death of Paul Giammatti’s dad and one of the patrons of the shop was asked to be the commissioner of major league baseball and he declined, then sat back in his chair and waited for the barber to get done with me. This story is 100% true.

    Hopefully once this (http://www.myspace.com/birdsbarbershop) place opens, you’ll be able to take in an entire set of Texecution while waiting to get a trim.
