Favre's sanity officially has jumped the shark.

    Jeez, now I'm starting to feel bad for him. This is a sad way for him to go out, even if his field judgements are probably on same level as Eli Manning. I actually hope he at least gets a win in his last game, though that might make him think he could go one more year. *gulp*

    Funny. I'm like that with Foreigner. They're issued about 10 "new" greatest hits collections this decade. I could stomach buying the first two greatest hits CDs ("Records" in the early '80s and "The Very Best And Beyond" in 1992) and even the double-CD that came out around 2000 and featured solo songs by Lou Gramm and Mick Jones (I would use the term "solo hits" but Mick Jones' CD tanked at Federline-esque levels). But the rest of the re-issues? Forget that. Complete money grabs. As was the awful, awful, awful DVD they issued, which was, I kid you not, filled with shaky camera shots from the fifth or sixth row. It was like a home movie.

    Nor will I buy the live greatest hits just issued by the new version of Fakeigner, which features nobody from the band's heyday except Jones. Fuck that. If I want to hear a Foreigner cover band, I'll go to a bar.

    As far as I'm concerned, I've got the complete Foreigner collection.

    See Jack Black, Kyle Gass and Brett Favre in: "Tenacious D and the Pick of Destiny!"

    Thank you, thank you. I'll be here all week. Try the veal.

    Yeah. No one ever comes up with stuff like that except me.

    He's the Bo Schembechler of quarterbacks.

    That someone would think of firing a salvo like that at Dan Marino is absolutely nuts.

    One skill? One freaking skill? I don't know what's dumber ... that comment or the fact that I'm jumping into this one. :-\

    Marino also was very skilled at blaming everyone else whenever a play didn't go his way.

    And he was pretty good in commercials and movie cameos.

    Hey, just like Payton Manning, including the lack of a Super Bowl ring.

    That is undeniably true.

    My one lasting image of Marino is him pulling the "you never played the game" trick after a brutal Monday night loss. Classless.

    Shitty officiating all around. Absolutely terrible. Was that supposed to make up for the fuck-over Seattle got in the Stupor Bowl?

    Green Bay Peckers lose and the Vikings fan rejoices once again!
