Because I live in the D.C. area, and not New York, my Hurricane Sandy experience involved having my power flicker twice and not being able to order delivery for the Monday night game because all the restaurants were closed. Oh, the unspeakable horrors. Still, because my girlfriend has a regular office job, she got two days off work, while I did my regular shift in the lulz mines. Blogging is a sucker’s racket, I tells ya.
Anyway, I’m grateful for not being submerged in water or near exploding power plants. Still having power means I can spend time doing frivolous things like watching a YouTube video of a Buccaneers fan having heated arguments with a section of Vikings fans, then failing to realize that Minnesota security is not going to be lenient on road fans who aren’t white people. Yay frivolous things!
The Sean Taylor Memorial Meast for Week 8 is Jon Menges, the Saints fan who snuck a Free Sean Payton shirt under his Deuce McAllister jersey into a photo-op with Roger Goodell. We said when we first posted the image last week that it would require a surpassing display of Meastiness to depose him from winning the award for Week 8 and, well, frankly that just wasn’t displayed on the football field this week. So Who Dat Hero it is.
Also receiving consideration: Doug Martin, Matthew Stafford, Rob Gronkowski, Stevie Brown
The Jeff George Memorial Least for Week 8 is the Redskins receiving corps. Collectively, Washington finished with 10 drops in their loss to Pittsburgh, eight of which were uncontested. RGIII can’t be the Super Amazing Bestest Quarterback Ever if his receivers don’t bother to haul in his passes. I hard to fight hard not to give the distinction to DeAngelo Hall for his usual shittiness, along with getting getting himself ejected and possibly suspended. But mostly because I adore this photo. The Redskins defense being awful isn’t an extraordinary circumstance, so better to pin the loss on their inept skill players.
Also receiving consideration: Tony Romo, Mark Sanchez, Robert Meachem, DeAngelo Hall and Bryant McKinnie, for not paying his strip club bills.
