Nobody's Opinion

Nobody Says Much

Nobody’s Opinion

Well, for once I don’t have much to say on a Sunday night. I watched the last few minutes of the game. And I also thought it was a good thing that as far as I know, the NFL has learned a lesson.

Americans do NOT want politics in football. Ever since Kaepernick the fans have stayed home.

They got smart and just creeped their political stuff into the commercials. Unless of course, they did something I missed.

Every single station, news and otherwise, all week long,  have been promoting the heck out of the Super bowl. Here in St. Louis, I just heard some fireworks go off.

The Midwest is happy tonight. I’ll watch the President’s speech tomorrow. Believe it or not, I’m married to man who HATES football, and he was teasing me when I turned into the last five minutes of the game.

Most importantly, we ALL took a break from the stupid impeachment BS. And so, yes, I’m enjoying a night of just watching everybody have fun.

How about you?

This is how it SHOULD be. This is the America we should fight to keep.

Nobody’s Perfect: Coach Pete Carroll VS France

Nobody’s Perfect

This week was a no-brainer. We have two contestants who SHOULD have won their respective contests, but blundered beyond comprehension.

First Up: The coach of the Seahawks, Pete Carroll, who by making the wrong call in Superbowl history, lost the game.football history

This writer sums it up …perfectly:

It was the height of stupidity, the epitome of idiocy, moronic nirvana.

It was a mistake of monstrous and monumental proportion, the Great Wall of dumb surrounding the Grand Canyon of dumber.

It went down in flames, and it will go down in history, quite simply and simple-mindedly, as “The Call.”

It was, by acclamation and without argument outside the Seattle Seahawks brain trust, the most imbecilic, senseless, defenseless, half-witted, empty-headed, brain-dead call in the history of organized football – and every other sport known to man in the history of the world.

And then there’s France.

France, has the reputation of being number one in the world of fine cuisine. The French got that honor right after they got rid of the guillotines and gave the government back to the rich Kings, and put the chefs back to work.

But this week…the French LOST the international chef contest! In fact, it placed…

Get your forks ready…7th!

From the National Post:

PARIS — It is considered to have one of the finest cuisines in the world. But France faced gastronomic humiliation after it failed to make the podium on home soil in a global cooking championship.

Norway won this year’s gold medal in the Bocuse d’Or, a contest often described as the World Cup of chefs. France only managed to muster seventh place in the competition in which chefs must “demonstrate creativity, spontaneity and the mastery of their art”.

Rubbing more salt into the wound, America – home of fast food and “le hamburger” – took silver, a historic first, with Sweden clinching the bronze.USA second

This is truly epic: America, land of chicken McNuggests, Whoppers, sloppy Joes, and onion rings, came in…second.

This could be an international crisis.

So, who wins the Nobody’s Perfect Award for the week?

How did our losers handle their defeat?

Nicolas Davouze, the main French Chef, who had high hopes for his “facon grenobloise and guinea fowl truffee petites farces bourgeoisis” said:

“Whatever happens, I have no regrets. I gave everything.”

(He forgot to put salt on the truffee petites, I’m sure of it.)sea hawk

Coach Carroll said:

“We were going to run the ball in to win the game, but not on that play. I didn’t want to waste a run play on their goal-line guys. It was a clear thought, but it didn’t work out right. The guy (Butler) made a play that no one would have thought he could make.”

(Evidently the ONLY person in the world who didn’t imagine what would happen was Pete Carroll. )

Who wins the Nobody’s Perfect Award for the week?

The French have held the tradition of making god awful crepes stuffed with cream crudités a la fish for ages, and will continue to win, all they need to do is get new judges next year.

Pat Carroll’s “call’ on the other hand, will NEVER be forgotten. Not even in France. Not even while dining out at the finest restaurants in all the world, right now, at this VERY moment people are eating their dinners and saying—-CAN YOU BELIEVE THAT CALL?

Congratulations Pete! You may have lost the Superbowl but you have won the Nobody’s Perfect Award for the week!

I suggest if any of us happen to run into Pete, we all buy him a drink, and suggest he take a nice long trip to France, where he will feel…more at home where he can share a heartfelt cri de coeur. (cry in French.)

There’s always next year.

Happy Superbowl Wisdom From Larry the Cable Guy

Nobody Gets Email

“Even after the Super Bowl victory of the New Orleans Saints, I have noticed a large number of people implying, with bad jokes, that Cajuns aren’t smart. I would like to state for the record that I disagree with that assessment. Anybody that would build a city 5 feet below sea level in a hurricane zone and fill it with Democrats who can’t swim is a genius.”-

                                                                                                                                                                          -Larry the Cable Guy

On this famous day…were Americans prove how very smart they are, by gathering in warm houses filled with enough food to last them through the spring if the country were attacked, I give you the wisdom of Larry…on of my favorite Americans. (Thanks to Pattie)

Enjoy! And save me a few of those hot dogs.
********************

Everyone concentrates on the problems we’re having in Our Country lately: Illegal immigration, hurricane recovery, alligators attacking people in Florida . .. .. . Not me — I concentrate on solutions for the problems — it’s a win-win situation.

* Dig a moat the length of the Mexican border.
* Send the dirt to New Orleans to raise the level of the levees.
* Put the Florida alligators in the moat along the Mexican border.

Any other problems you would like for me to solve today?
Think about this:

1. Cows
2. The Constitution
3. The Ten Commandments

COWS
Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that during the mad cow epidemic our government could track a single cow, born in Canada almost three years ago, right to the stall where she slept in the state of Washington? And, they tracked her calves to their stalls. But they are unable to locate 11 million illegal aliens wandering around our country. Maybe we should give each of them a cow.

THE CONSTITUTION

They keep talking about drafting a Constitution for Iraq …. why don’t we just give them ours?
It was written by a lot of really smart guys, it has worked for over 200 years, and we’re not using it anymore.

THE 10 COMMANDMENTS (Nobody’s favorite)

The real reason that we can’t have the Ten Commandments posted in a courthouse is this — you cannot post ‘Thou Shalt Not Steal’
‘Thou Shalt Not Commit Adultery’ and ‘Thou Shall Not Lie’ in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians, it creates a hostile work environment.

Also, think about this ….. If you don’t want to forward this for fear of offending someone — YOU ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM!
