(Editor’s Note: Derived from an exclamation made by a young lady who felt shunned by a gentleman at a party, this weekly column aims to remind you of some of the things you may have missed.)
Body by Jake? Belgian bodybuilders at a bodybuilding event reportedly fled the scene upon the arrival of a drug tester. That’s it. The last bastion of clean, non-supplemented, pure sport has now been dirtied. It used to be all you needed was a Bowflex, a can of baby oil, and a dream. Now, the hallowed records which were passed down from generation to generation by fathers to sons are meaningless. We all grew up knowing numbers like “126” (as if I had to tell you — the world record for one-armed push-ups). It’s part of the fabric of this country and that fabric has been forever stained. Bob Costas and I say “Shame on you!”
The World’s Most Famous Man . . . Say what you want about Presidents and their political agendas. Go ahead. Okay, now that we’ve got that out of the way, I just wanted to point out how gratifying it is to have a President than can talk a little shit. This week ND football got the Presidential treatment. It will be interesting to see how Coach Weis (an accomplished shit-talker in his own right) responds to this in the upcoming season. I can virtually GUARANTEE that he will volley something back sooner rather than later. Now all we need is Gary Payton in the Cabinet and we are good to go.
Eddie Harris thinks this guy has bad form. . . NFL quarterback (yes the one that THROWS the ball) Trent Edwards shamed himself when throwing out the first pitch at this week’s Blue Jays’ game. Epic fail. I will just let the pictures tell the story.
Vodpod videos no longer available.
Trent. Come on. Seriously. My only theory here is that Edwards doesn’t want the team to permanently relocate to Toronto (edit by R. Goodell) play any more games in Toronto. Thus, he took one for the team and sandbagged his pitch. I see you working Trent. Crazy like a fox.
