Aww, isn’t it adorable how nervous he is?
Just like I always believed Favre could’ve been a movie star if he stuck with acting after his groundbreaking turn in There’s Something About Mary, there’s no doubt in my mind that Favre will one day develop into one of the most consistent announcers to have ever called the game. He’ll be a veritable word-slinger, haphazardly tossing around observations, fitting comments into the tiniest of conversational windows. The only knock on Favre as an announcer is that if he uses one cliché, he’s bound to use at least three more.
Speaking of “Build Me Up Buttercup” and Wisconsin icons, this clip of the Badgers’ student section singing their hearts out is pretty amazing.
Does Ndamukong Suh have a future in comedy? If this low budget skit for Disco Suh’s Disco Workout is any indication… um, maybe? I’d stick to tearing off the heads of QBs for now.
Are you ready for some Nazis?! A fascism party! Tired of collecting paychecks for a played out theme song, Hank Williams yesterday compared President Obama to Hitler (and, in a comparison where it’s not clear who should be defended, John Boehner to Netanyahu). ESPN quickly yanked the Godwin’s Law practitioner from the air. Anyone else really hoping they give Gruden a crack at the new theme?
Williams should probably apologize for being a simpleton with nothing worthwhile to add to the national dialogue. Bernard Berrian, on the other hand, shouldn’t be apologizing to anyone. Telling a Twitter troll to “sit down and shut up” is fair game. If that troll happens to be an Iraq vet and a double amputee, well, maybe Berrian could’ve made a better choice of words. Still, I’m firmly #TeamBernard on this one.
Here’s a video of a father enlisting his young son’s help in pointlessly burning his Tony Romo jersey. Might want to keep this on file, arson investigators of the future.
Finally, in some good news (if you’re into our education system being privatized!), Deion Sanders has received approval to open his very own charter school. PrimeU Prep Academy will open in Texas in 2012. No jersey-burners allowed.
