Fumble!

Allow me, for just a moment, a brief episode of schadenfreude

His Bloviatedness, Rush “Pass the Painkillers” Limbaugh, has been dropped from the group bidding for ownership of the St. Louis Rams. Although not available for comment about this event, Mr. Limbaugh characterized the opposition to his potential part-ownership of an NFL franchise thus:

”This is not about the NFL, it’s not about the St. Louis Rams, it’s not about me,” Limbaugh said. ”This is about the ongoing effort by the left in this country, wherever you find them, in the media, the Democrat Party, or wherever, to destroy conservatism, to prevent the mainstreaming of anyone who is prominent as a conservative.

”Therefore, this is about the future of the United States of America and what kind of country we’re going to have.”

Wow. Whatever medications you’re taking, pass ’em down. It has nothing to do with Liberal/Conservative, Rush; what it has to do with is that some people, make that many people, despite your delusional assertions to the contrary, hate you.

Hate. You.

The fact that the National Football League felt squeamish about letting you be even a minor player in the ownership of a team says something about the integrity of the league – or at least something about their desire to steer clear of unnecessary problems.

And you, sir, are an unnecessary problem.

The roots of religion run deep

This can be thrown out almost without comment. It was reported that underneath the soon-to-be-opened new home of the New York Yankees was a Boston Red Sox jersey – buried by a Red Sox fan wanting to “jinx” the team. A thinking human being in control of his or her faculties would laugh it off, but sports fans are apparently not thinking beings. Instead of leaving it be, the Yankees investigated and dug out the offending piece of cloth.

What’s more, they are considering pressing charges against what the Yankee’s president called “a very, very bad act”.
