A solid showing from the KSK Kommentariat this week, even though this is the slowest stretch in NFL news that I can remember in quite some time. A spiffy little Matthew McConaughey comedy pyramid, Martin posting corgis in the PK vacation post, World Cup Liveblogifications that have been as funny as they has been smart. A Treaty of Tordesillas discussion. You are the very reason I tell people KSK is the exception to the “never read the comments” rule that other online writers hold so dear.
On that front, you’ll notice we didn’t select any KOTW from the live blogs. Not that they’re not in there, but it’s very tough to go back and read that many live blog comments and select the best one. So instead we’re going to take Kommentariat stalwart Otto Man’s suggestion and let you guys nominate your favorite comments from those threads. Please though, no campaigning or bribery. We would hate to see the KOTW awards be devalued like early-aughts Argentinean currency.
I am your host Sarah Sprague and these are your Comments of the Week for June 17, 2014. Go USA.
Old School Zero
Listen, I usually adore all the KSKharacters, but this “Houston Texans” you’ve made up just strains credulity.
The Texans have adopted the strategy of so many large American corporations : find a Harvard grad who drove the organization into the ground at his old job and massively overpay him to fail here too.
Monty this seems strange to me
Terrell Owens will do push-ups for you for that $100. Actually he’ll settle for bus fare at this point.

He offered to wash my windows the other day, but I’m not falling for that again. All he does is wash off one little square and then looks at the reflection of his abs in it for two hours
Balls of Steel
(Money phone flies open)
Money: Johnny! Johnny!
Money: Johnny, we need to talk.
JF: I’m sorry, I can’t hear you!
(Money is exasperated. Money has seen this too many times)
Money: Johnny, I can’t do this anymore.
JF: WHAT? I CAN’T HEAR YOU!
Money: This is it, Johnny. If you can’t be serious for one second, I’m leaving.
Money: Dammit, Johnny! Don’t you want to fight for US?!?
JF: I can’t hear you! (laughs)
Money: goodbye, sweet doofus. I will always care for you.
JF: Wooooo! I can’t hear you!!
(Money runs away with a stripper named Sinnamon)
Damnit, why won’t Danny Wegman make a bid.
Like the other owners would let him come in and make them look bad by giving all the stadium workers things like paid vacations and livable wages while providing value friendly concession prices.
I know the name doesn’t really allow for much creative interpretation, but all the ones for the Jets seem kind of meh.

I assumed that boring logos were part of the Jets mystique.
Your mistake was assuming the Jets have any sort of mystique.
(Reply) Mike Wallace and Gromit
If the Jets had Mystique I’m sure they’d morph her into a competent quarterback.
I thought Jaguars only broke down and crash into each other on Formula 1 tracks.
