“Blaise is traditionally believed to intercede in cases of throat illnesses, especially for fish-bones stuck in the throat.”
Now, as a Catholic, would you pray to St. Blaise before or after giving the international sign for choking?

Please note this is classic PK. He’s not reporting anything ORIGINAL, he’s merely resending somebody else’s tweet / nugget.
I thoroughly hope he gets frozen out by his SI article.

So Peter King is busy twatting instead of actually trying to find a newsworthy item that fans actually give a shit about? Par for the course I guess.
And Adam Schefter needs to go plant a bag of coke in some player’s room so he can break the story an hour before kickoff instead of following around an old man in a strange town.

As DancingBaptist said, this is quintessential PK. He has done absolutely nothing other than re-post the actual “work” done by a fellow reporter. And he considers something as mundane as Rooney going to church to be acutal news that should blow our minds, not to mention the traditional King quasi-Plaschke-esque sentence structure (make a sentence longer than 3 words fuckface).
It’s insulting that this man continues to win Sportswriter of the Year awards with “nuggets” like this. Who fucking cares if Rooney is going to church?

It goes to show you what idiot journalists these guys are! No one bothered to go inside the church to witness Rooney giving $ to the “poor” (his “nephews”). I bet Seattle or Baltimore journalists would have caught him red-handed!

How does PK differentiate between a “good nugget” and a useless piece of information?

I found that nugget to be a bit dry and overcooked.

I am intrigued by this notion that Peter King has ever delivered a ‘good’ nugget. Please tell me more.

“Steelers owner Dan Rooney just spotted walking to church in Fort Worth.”
He was turned away at the door by a man who told him, “It’s Thursday, you old dipshit.”

Well, I did put the “good nugget” in scare quotes. Really, though, most of King’s writting is just him vomiting out waves of “nuggets.” Never read and actual story by him.
“I wasn’t crazy about having the Super Bowl in Minneapolis. You could never go outside. It was freezing all of the time. But I’m not one of those people who rail against whatever city the Super Bowl is in.”
Peter King…in his CNN interview today. After spending the entire season whining that there is going to be a cold-weather Super Bowl a few years in the future.
I hate these media guys and their idea that they should get a free vacation and that’s what the Super Bowl is about. Wilbon was going on today about how the Super Bowl wasn’t about the game…it was about the parties, week leading up to it, etc.
No it isn’t. For the vast, vast majority of people, the Super Bowl is about the game and the atmosphere of that specific day. Most people watching do it from home and either are indifferent to ‘perfect weather’ or prefer that the cold weather teams get some love, too. Just because you want to party doesn’t make the Super Bowl about the ‘experience’.

Is he kissing ass or is he trying to steal the nugget by proving he already knew it? Either way I fail to understand how this ass clown has a job.

Schefter actually left Rooney’s room at the same time, so he knew where he was going. Adam was his twink for the night, and Rooney was going to pray for forgiveness for his sinful ways.
Or give highlights to the priest.

Oh, right–because he’s a mouthpiece for the owners who couldn’t make a critical evaluation of a statement if the existence of Starbucks depended on it. Fuck this tubby, star-fucking pile of shit.

A Catholic went to church. This is tweet-worthy…WHY? The priest walking into the church behind Rooney prolly just got done finger-blasting an altar boy but Petey doesn’t tweet about that, now does he?!??!?!?

As per this week’s King dispatch in SI, Roger Goodell is the most wonderful biped since Jesus, possibly better. Rooney should worship him. Goodell had to pull himself up from the hardscrabble roots of suburban squalor one always associates with the bereft children of United States Senators.
