    A friend of mine who is a non-sports fan (yes, I do have some of those) made an interesting observation the other day as scrolling headlines on the TV above us continued to report news of the NFL’s latest black eye. My friend mentioned in passing, rather poetically “As their empire lay crumbling, all anyone could do was talk about balls.”

    And he was right.

    News of Deflate-gate has dominated the headlines for over a week. It was all any talking head on any television station could talk about. Who ordered the deflating? Did Tom Brady do it? Was it Bill Belichick? Who un-aired these godforsaken footballs that gave the New England Patriots such an unfair advantage over those poor Indianapolis Colts and how long had they been doing it?

    How do you know Belicheat is lying? His lips are moving…

    As it appears once again the Patriots cheat anywhere and everywhere they can and since they rarely get caught and even less frequently get penalized then what is with all the furor? If slacker favoritist Goodell doesn’t want to do anything about it then he won’t. Next!! Move along folks…

    … but nothing is seen as amiss so long as the NFL is still printing coin by the hour… all the while fining Marshawn Lynch $25,000 for a crotch grab and then selling posters of said crotch grab themselves for $149.95 each.. Can you spell hypocrites?

    I also read that nosebleed seats are going for $8800 and 'good' seats range as high as $28,800 each for this farce of cheaters... And somehow well heeled fans are still buying them... :smh:

    Tree…

    I am dying to know what you’re doing for the Super Bowl.

    Not sure what I wouldn’t give to be sitting in the La-Z-Boy next to you pounding a couple pops and yelling at the screen, while simultaneously making fun of everyone who wasn’t.

    My buddy tells a funny story of how Sammy Hagar not once, but twice, cockblocked him at his bar in Cabo San Lucas.

    Just imagine what old David Lee Roth would have done to him.
