GET THIS MAN A RING!!!
Randy, you would have had me at “second-best.” Still, thanks for making Media Day fun. I hope you get your ring Sunday.
1987 Broncos champs sweatshirt. One problem: they didn’t win the championship.
Before Randy Moss gets ripped for mailing it in his two seasons with the Raiders, let’s remember two things. 1) He was playing for this out-of-touch disaster of an owner. 2) One of those two “lousy” seasons, Moss went over 1,000 yards receiving. I don’t blame anyone for drifting aimlessly through an Al Davis regime. So I’ll say it again, in two Sundays at the Super Bowl, let’s get Randy Moss a ring.
He’s the reason I’ll be pulling for San Francisco in the Super Bowl. Get the man a ring.
Bo Jackson. Because he’s Bo Jackson.
Allen Iverson. Because he’s the most fearless athlete I’ve ever seen.
Deion Sanders. Because he was really good and made football fun.
Willie McGee. Because he’s Willie McGee.
Paul Konerko. Because he has no filter and is smart and honest all the time.
Randy Moss. Because his massive talent drove white people crazy when they believed he wasn’t living up to their expectations.
Hakeem Olajuwon. Because I like to believe his post moves gave other centers nightmares.
Arian Foster. Because he’s really good at football and vegan and was a philosophy major and likes poetry and will give the middle finger to anyone who questions his outlook on life.
Jim Thome. Because he’s just a big strong nice simple ogre who I hope plays forever who I believe has never put anything in his body stronger than a caffeinated soda.
Joe Montana. Because I don’t believe his pulse ever got above 60 bpm, ever.
Chris Kingsbury. Because he was in range from 28 feet and because of games like this one. If you don’t want to sit through the whole video fast forward to 7:11 and stick with it through 7:45.
Magic Johnson. Because he’s Magic Johnson.
What’s the best part about Tim Tebow and Jeremy Lin? It’s what they haven’t accomplished. Right?
I’m glad Tim Tebow and his NFL team won. I really am. Here are five reasons why:
5. I wouldn’t trust someone like Ben Roethlisberger around my daughters when they reach dating age.
4. It increases the chance that Skip Bayless might climb over the First Take table tomorrow morning and actually urinate on Stephen A. Smith on live TV, therefore ending Bayless’ career.
3. It increases the possibility of me getting to watch Bad Tim Tebow next week against New England. Bad Tebow is so entertaining, a player so frenetic and rattled that I think without exaggeration while watching him, “Hey, that’s how I’d play if I had to face an NFL defense.”
2. I like the guy. Really, he seems like a decent guy.
1. It exposes ESPN for what it is, an entity that has grown so out of control that it displays megalomaniacal tendencies toward its audience. Tonight on SportsCenter Steve Levy led off the show telling us there would be a ton of Tebow coverage and that we should “deal with it.” What I don’t think ESPN gets is that I actually want to watch its programming, but they’re making it impossible.
