You deserve props…..
1-Michael Vick, Bruce Gradkowski, Matt Hasselbeck, David Garrard and Chad Henne
Um, this is a WEIRD list of quarterbacks. Sorta reminds me of a bad “Mix 106″-type of Holiday concert. (Not Mix 106 specifically, but stations like that.) You know, stations across the country that are promoting something like a “Holiday Havoc” concert this December at their local arena and boast of lineup that features one fairly big act that isn’t necessarily big anymore, like……then matches it up with a rock act that had one pop hit but whose music otherwise probably wouldn’t go over so well with the “Mix” crowd…….then throws in a country singer who has a couple of hits and feels really out of place trying to fire up a crowd…….and throws in a R&B act that you really had no idea was even still playing music; then mixes it with a pop act that absolutely no one is interested in seeing because their one hit came at the beginning of the year and they have followed it up with NOTHING. And they finish it off with ONE relevant act whose music no one is familiar with. So, it would basically be like this…..
“SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY! Mix 96 invites you down to Memorial Arena for Holiday Havoc, the HOTTEST SHOW TO EVER HIT THE METROPOLITAN AREA! Starring…..”
and special guest OWL CITY!
You know what-I probably would have been confused into going to that show at some point in my life.
2-Roy “Big Country” Nelson and Kimbo Slice
You mean to tell me that Bachman managed to WIN The Ultimate Fighter???
3-Greg McElroy and Mark Ingram
Wha….whaddya think Mark Ingram will wear to his Heisman Trophy presentation?
Alabama’s win over Florida in the SEC Championship Game was the most exciting thing that happened in Tuscaloosa since the discovery of indoor plumbing.
(Edit from GMC: I’m kidding. Lot of good things have come from Alabama. Almost all of which are in the picture below.)
4-Jonathan Stewart, Matt Forte and Brandon Jacobs
So……the Giants swept the Cowboys, huh? Had to be the most exciting thing that happened in New Jersey this week, right? I mean, other than when this guy took his shirt off……
As a proud Perry Hall alum, I will admit that I can’t REALLY root for Eastern Tech. BUT-I guess I can feel happy for the Mavericks……mostly because they’re the only school near Rossville Blvd. that has lights on their tennis courts-which means a LOT to this guy right here. PLUS, EVT is pretty close to a certain establishment on Route 40 that I have been known to frequent due to their delicious hoagie sandwiches. They’re not a sponsor, so I won’t refer to them by name-let’s just call them “Awaw.”
AND let’s just say that this is arguably their greatest creation…..
6-Scottie Reynolds, Patrick Patterson, Kyle Singler and Reggie Holmes
There was a moment in Sunday night’s Maryland-Villanova game at Verizon Center where fans in the Terrapins student section noticed someone rooting for the Wildcats and chanted the ever-classy “Ass-hole! Ass-hole!” It gave me a moment to stand up and yell “Yeah, no one should ever root for a team other than mine ever!”
And while I still don’t care for Villanova, I WILL admit to being a fan of Villanova grad Jackie…..
7-Chad Ochocinco, Antonio Gates, Larry Fitzgerald, Pierre Garcon and Brandon Marshall
Yeah, why not……
And apparently there’s a song, too. It’s a shame they announced the Grammy nominees before now……
8-Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh and Brook Lopez
THE NETS WON! THE NETS WON! THE NETS WON! (And then lost again) BUT WHO CARES THE NETS WON!
And with all due respect to Brook Lopez, I tend to prefer Brooke Burke….
Boy, I guess that Ovechkin fella really isn’t that necessary, huh? I don’t know a whole heck of a lot about the NHL, but I know that winning by a score of 8-2 is pretty good. Or at least better than losing 8-2.
Not that I’m worried about my Flyers, because we still look AWESOME in our new commercial…..
10-Tianna Hawkins and Elena Delle Donne
I’m posing the Elena Delle Donne dilemma to you. I can’t say anything about a lazy eye; because I know someone who has an eye lazier than Ray Bachman….
But as far as the Delaware hoops star is concerned…..it’s up to you…….
Won Tiger Woods’ golf tournament this weekend. But there was a much bigger story this weekend in the world of golf. A MUCH bigger story in the world of golf. We all know what I’m talking about.
That’s right, the PGA Tour is coming to Malaysia for the Asia Pacific Golf Classic!!!!
It is truly a great time to be a golf fan!
You’re probably thinking “But Glenn, didn’t USC somehow manage to LOSE to Arizona-forcing them to have to accept a bid to the Emerald Bowl???” Yes they did. But that wasn’t NEARLY the biggest Trojans-related story this week. (My apologies for using the term “biggest” before discussing Charlie Weis. PURELY coincidence.) But outgoing Notre Dame coach Charlie Weis allegedly claimed Pete Carroll was living with a student out in Malibu!
Carroll denied the claims-but if they’re accurate, would anyone blame him???
13-Sandra Bullock and Quinton Aaron
The Blind Side overtook New Moon for the #1 spot this weekend at the box office-which is actually AMAZING. Like, REALLY amazing all things considered.
I’m not sure what’s more amazing-The Blind Side becoming Number 1, or the fact that there’s a new movie coming out called “Nine” I’ve never heard of where Penelope Cruz looks like THIS……
14-Saturday Night Live
Look, the Tiger Woods thing was funny…..
But in the world Kenan Thompson, it can’t TOUCH “What Up With That?”
The highlight of the night however was CLEARLY Rihanna and Shy Ronnie…..
And the Muppets/Blake Lively weren’t too bad either….
15-Smoked Turkey BBQ, Jalapeno Cornbread and Shiner Bock
(I forgot to take pictures of my dinner Sunday night. My apologies!)
While in Chinatown last night for the BB&T Classic, my friend (who went to Oklahoma but is actually a mostly good person!) suggested we go for BBQ. While I questioned the idea of Capital Q BBQ there in Chinatown—I must give her props. Except for the fact that she is now 0-1 in Terps games she has watched with me.
You got lucky……
1-Drew Brees and Robert Meachem
Look-I’m rooting for the Ravens, period. But if for some reason this goes the wrong way, I’m rooting for the Saints. Either way, I’m laughing at the Redskins.
2-Hunter Lawrence and Devan Cunningham
Seriously, Now Bachman’s gonna think HE could catch a winning 2 point conversion in a college football game!
I know Joakim Noah won two NCAA Tournament titles at Florida, but what the hell is he thinking here????
Joakim-LeBron James is SIGNIFICANTLY better than you. As in, your names should NEVER be spoken in the same sentence. Just shut up, clown.
4-Tony Pike and Jonathan Dwyer
In honor of Georgia Tech winning the ACC Championship, here’s some OutKast….
Is that a cop out for me? Yes. It’s been a long weekend…..
USA-England in the World Cup?!?!?! This one’s a no-brainer…..
Kelly Osbourne is British…..
Carrie Underwood is American……
Good for you, Eldrick.
7-Everyone who was NOT thrown from a horse at some point this weekend
You’re doing better than “The Luckiest Dang Gal on the Face of the Planet”…..
(Edit from GMC: That’s her shoulder, kids.)
I guess it could be worse. For example, you could be EJ Henderson…..
Or Greg Oden……
You’re a zero……..
Look, Alabama-Texas is the right matchup; there’s no doubt about that. But tell that to Cincinnati, TCU and Boise State fans……like Chrissy Popadics…..
I’ve changed my mind. Let the Broncos play for the title. Or just give it to them.
Flexing my mic muscles since 1983…….
