We start this Comments of Week column with an apology. Distracted by not watching the World Series and RobotFightingDinosaurs Madden game, we missed a comment thread get out of control at the hands of a terrible troll and it wasn’t until a couple of hours later that we saw the carnage that took place. Of course we immediately cleaned it up once we saw what was happening, but it shouldn’t have been on you, the dear Kommentariat, to fight so valiantly against such a beast. You all did an admirable job though and we thank you for working so hard to keep the KSK Komments one of the few corners of the internet as rational as possible.
(As “rational as possible” of course being a relative term seeing how many of you are Raiders/Bears/Washington/Jags/Bills/Colts fans.)
I am your host Sarah Sprague and these are your Comments of the Week for October 22-38, 2014. Stay gold, Ponyboy.
I believe that haircut of Romo is termed a “fade”, which will make it extremely appropriate come December.
Look at that asshole. Guys so full of himself he think he can fly, too.
“Yeah, Mr. Elway, this is Denver PD calling…can you vouch for a John Boyett?”
That’s the smile of a man who read about human emotion in a book once and thought, “I could do that.”
Monty this seems strange to me
Jamaal Charles: “You mean there’s a catch?”
“Sure there’s a catch”, Doc Daneeka replied. “Catch-22. Anyone who wants to get out of playing isn’t really concussed.”
There was only one catch and that was Catch-22, which specified that a concern for one’s own safety in the face of dangers that were real and immediate was the process of a rational mind. Charles was concussed and could be benched. All he had to do was ask; and as soon as he did, he would no longer be concussed and would have to go back in the game. Charles would have to be concussed to want to play more while concussed and not concussed if he didn’t, but if he was not concussed, he had to keep playing. If he kept playing, he was concussed and didn’t have to; but if he didn’t want to, he was not concussed and had to.
Roger Goodell was moved very deeply by the absolute simplicity of this clause of Catch-22 and let out a respectful whistle.
Jay Cutler wants to go to Barcelona because he heard it was in Catalonia.
Tony Easons of Anarchy
I’m pretty sure even Jim Caldwell could muster up a facial expression if the Lions won the Super Bowl, but we’ll never know because it’s not going to happen in his lifetime
The best thing about Caldwell is that, as a Bears fan, I can just recycle all of my old Lovie Smith jokes.
