Jeff Hart: Wednesday Linkfest for October 26, 2011
By: Jeff Hart | Posted: October 26, 2011
Wednesday got you down? Why not start your day with some little kids playing football? Specifically, one slightly less than little kid making last year’s Peyton Hillis look like this year’s Peyton Hillis.
If that failed to cheer you up, maybe it’s time to engage in some good old-fashioned schadenfreude. For instance, hump day might seem lousy, but at least your boss hasn’t started throwing around legendary names to replace you… even though you’ve yet to be fired. At least Tony Sparano knows that it sucks to be Tony Sparano.
Speaking of coaches under fire, Terrell Suggs had some unkind things to say about the Ravens play-calling after Monday night’s sleep-inducing loss. Could this be the beginning of a full on mutiny by the Ravens defense? Will we see Ray Lewis calling the offense by season’s end? I hope so.
It also can’t be fun to be Terrell Owens this morning. The WR likely woke up to an empty voicemail box following yesterday’s sideshow of a workout. No team representatives attended, but there was plenty of media present, so expect to hear more about Owens’ comeback in the days to come.
The ultimate in schadenfreude? Jamarcus Russell. It’s definitely worth checking out the Sports Illustrated profile on the man who may now be considered the biggest bust in history. Writer L. Jon Wertheim even mentions fans’ “gleeful verging on creepy” tearing down of Russell, which is exactly what we’re doing in this Linkfest – trying to make ourselves feel better!
Join Kissing Suzy Kolber as they “waive” good-bye to arch-nemesis Bernard Berrian.
I’d say that Chris Johnson is having a bad few weeks, what with consistently underachieving, getting blasted by fans on Twitter, and finally being called out by a world class sprinter for last year’s speed boasts. However, he sleeps on a bed made of money so it’s probably still pretty good to be Johnson.
If all that’s failed to make your Wednesday any less miserable, consider this: Tony Romo is having a baby. If everyone’s favorite bumbling pariah could get his junk together enough to create life, what’s stopping you from making it through another gloomy Wednesday?
