It’s inexplicable how he still has a job after France’s performance in Euro 2008 and in the 2010 World Cup qualifiers. He must have pictures of Sébastien Chabal, Gerard Depardieu and a donkey running a train on President Sarkozy.
The song has raised his approval ratings despite his dismal record and non-existent appeal (if you believe his public relations adviser). Negative to zero is a start. If you must hear the song, you can find it here. Hope you like it when your ears get debacled.
So, first Emmitt Smith did that “Just for Men” commercial highlighting (pun intended) his talents seen on “Dancing With the Stars.” I’m sure most of you have seen the commercial, hair dying, hospital gown, terrible acting and all but, just in case, here it is…
Let’s get something straight. I am sure most men would agree with me that the only way they can be encouraged to take dance lessons has nothing to do with pointing out Emmitt Smith had fun on a television show where sports stars dance alongside Tom Delay wearing animal prints and tight shiny pants. Especially since most men don’t dance like Hall of Fame running backs. Emmitt Smith: running back, dancer, beard dyer, and savior to brides who don’t want to look like idiots during their first dance? Yeah, I didn’t think so.
This has been around since the summer but it’s new to us. This must have been so much cooler in the summer when Matt Cassell was a high school starter. The last backup we saw kick it like this was Kyle Boller busting some moves for charity.
An anonymous source called this horrific. It’s so bad Emmitt Smith would probably start speaking the Queen’s English after watching it.
Has it come to this? Donovan McNabb is proving Bernard “The Executioner”Hopkins right. It was only last week that Bernard Hopkins called out McNabb for being weak and “crumbling under pressure”.
“Some people are athletes, still good, but don’t have that extra ‘I’m willing to sacrifice my life. I’m willing to sacrifice what I have to sacrifice to win.’ … People never forgot when things happen, they see a guy crumble under pressure. Whether they throw up on the highway, whether they throw up on the court, whether they throw up on the football field, when people see that, that sticks in the back of their mind.”
Hopkins continued: “Every athlete should have that killer instinct in him, especially if you the quarterback… If he’s not right here and here [pointing to heart and head], and don’t want it, the team feel the vibes…”
McNabb didn’t do himself any favors yesterday leading the Eagles to a tie against the Bengals with four interceptions. The topper came in the postgame press conference when he admitted that he didn’t know ties were possible in the NFL.
Talk about not being right in the head. How could McNabb not know that games can end in ties? How long has he been in the league? How could he not know the rules? Let’s put his lack of knowledge about the basic rules aside for a moment. It’s not like anyone else on the Eagles knew what time it was.
“To be honest, I didn’t know there wasn’t going to be another overtime,” [safety Quintin] Mikell said. “I didn’t know it was going to be a tie. I was kind of happy. I thought we were going to get another overtime. After I realized it was a tie, I was pretty ticked off. I felt we should have come in and won this game. That’s a team we should have beat. We didn’t come out ready to play, all across the board, so it’s a loss to me.”
What does Herm say? “You play to win the game!” Does this mean Andy Reid didn’t know the game could end in a tie as well? Were the Eagles playing for another overtime period instead of the win since they didn’t realize the game was going to end? If so, add today’s debacle to the list of donkey moves along with the goalline disaster at the end of the Bears game several weeks ago.
Once again, Reid’s decision making and McNabb’s execution have to be called into question. They can still make the playoffs but they won’t go anywhere if they do. It may be time to break up the band after the season. The Eagles have only shown excellence in consistent mediocrity during the Reid/McNabb run. I shouldn’t sell them short. They are excellent dick teases. They show a little skin at the beginning of the season and get Philly fans excited. However the fans get in the pants and find out they’re in shemale country again just like last year. How long can this continue before the city cries “uncle”? In the words of Emmitt, the Eagles fans were debacled by their own team once again. Unfortunately it won’t be the last time.
Well that didn’t take long. What can be said about the one they call Pacman this time? At least he didn’t get into it at the strip club? I suppose that’s a start.
Pacman could be in some trouble unless the Cowboys cover up his latest altercation Michael Irvin-style. CBS11 in Dallas and Pro Football Talk report that Pacman was involved in a scrap at a Dallas hotel. The Dallas station calls the Tuesday night incident a “violent confrontation”. Allegedly it was between Pacman and a member of his security detail.
Sources say police were called after Jones argued with one of his own bodyguards. By the time police arrived he was headed back inside the hotel and patrons could clearly hear a fight going on in the bathroom.
That fight was allegedly between ‘Pacman’ Jones and a member of his security detail. Security inside the hotel allegedly pulled the two apart. At least one mirror was broken in the confrontation.
Sources say Jones went outside and left the hotel without paying his tab. He was reportedly with a woman who drove the two away from the scene.
Strangely enough, there was no police report. That’s how you circle the wagons, Dallas. It’s a time honored tradition in the Execution State. Anyway, Pacman’s going to do as Pacman does. If Shammgod can’t go to the mountain, the mountain will just have to come to Shammgod. You can’t keep Pacman away from beef forever. He’s gotta have it like Pookie.
UPDATE: The Bengals would probably have to give up too high a draft pick to get the bodyguard because he’s already down with America’s Team. PFT’s Mike Florio has a league source who says the bodyguard “was an off-duty police officer who has been hired by Cowboys owner Jerry Jones to babysit Pacman”.
The source says that the problem started because the babysitter popped off to Jones’ female companion. Jones, who had been drinking, then started up with the guy, and it culminated in a scuffle.
Jones, we’re told, had marks on his face at practice on Wednesday.
