    Let’s talk about sports.

    If Word Press will let us.

    Your old man will be missed by
    thousands. Mostly me.

    FUCK YOU. My god, what a ghoul.

    Probably too long term for it to work for her needs but I like the chick trying to kill him by destroying his kidneys. And I’d love to see the texts between them talking about PK.

    I would have guessed that was fake, but, as usual when PK is involved, it’s real.

    It’s almost like he reflected on that story of Banks pointing out that he’s self-absorbed and unaware and decided “I’ll show you a lack of awareness. I miss your dad more than you do, Alissa.”

    Old friend LaAdrian Waddle tore his quad over the weekend.

    I would imagine that hurts like fuck.

    Alissa is Banks’ wife. “your old man” like he’s fucking Sinatra.  I’m almost imoressed he could pack that much offense and obliviousness within the constraints of haiku, even if it’s a shitty haiku as always and only qualifies as such because of 5-7-5

    speaking of, I hope that’s King’s cholesterol level the next time he has it checked and his dr, after recovering from seeing such an astronomical number simply shrugs and wishes him luck with his impending stroke

    I love how Pete complains annually about the Hall of Fame speeches – Tony Gonzalez went 39 minutes! – yet he has no issue polluting the world with his longform bullshit on a weekly basis.  Guy gets inducted into the Hall of Fame once, he’s fucking earned it to speak one time for half an hour or so thanking everyone that influenced him and giving insight into who he is personally.  Everyone knows the deal going in, you aren’t there thinking the ceremony will be over in an hour.  He’s basically bitching that he’s not at the hotel bar racking up a tab to be paid by his employer.

    Sounds like Bill opened up his podium talk this morning with comments on Banks.  Not sure of the content yet just saw that Banks’s son thanked him.  Yeah, Bill’s an asshole caller.

    Yet I bet he’s on board with inflating the induction ceremonies with this “Centennial Committee” crap. Because, you know, the league wants it.  What if they played “get the hell off the stage” music in Canton like they do at the Oscars® when speeches go too long?  Can you imagine what Law or Reed or any hot-tempered inductee would do?   :lol:

    If I’m remembering the story correctly, PK is given his own microphone when the HOF committee meets because he talks so much. And that’s every meeting, year after year. The actual inductees speaking “too long” on the day they they are specifically being honored is too much, though.

    Pete using ‘I woke up’ is perfect because Don Banks died in his sleep and didn’t.

    So when 20 people go in next year they do it over 2 nights?   Start at 10 AM?  Jerry Lewis Telethon Style and go straight thru for 20 hours?

    Peter did not get the Leung article from 10 days ago I guess?

    “I tried the Florida Cracker Belgian Wit, and it was mindful of Allagash White—not quite as yeasty- or citrusy. But a solid beer. And what a cool spot.”

    Sure Pete – it’s exactly the same.

    “I bet the Pentagon correspondents for CNN and NBC would have killed to be reporting from the deck of an aircraft carrier in the Middle East on the simmering tensions between the U.S. and Iran. It’s the equivalent of me being inside an important team’s draft room on draft weekend and reporting what goes on way behind the scenes.”

    Of course had the interns drive and then tried ordering one to stop for a piss break.  She refused.

    Clearly, I didn’t read the latest FMIA column. Addressing that to Banks’ wife is more offensive than if it was directed to one of his kids. Even saying “your old man” is terrible because I’m sure Alissa Banks is thinking and hearing a lot of “But he was so young” today.

    I guess when your gimmick is a haiku and you need to make it work, decorum be damned.

    Walking into a propeller is almost as dangerous as having an unpopped popcorn kernel of Jerry Jones get wedged between your molars.

    Jesus, I completely missed that. He can’t help but use the absolute worst possible words. It’s savantlike, his ability to be completely inappropriate every goddamn time.

    Do we have a compilation of those? That’s where I was going with the warship thing too.

    There might have been a list back when Pete was ‘blown away’ by the response to the marathon bombings.

    IIRC, he “had a blast” visiting Boston shortly thereafter.

    Might be the first and only time anyone (himself) will talk about Peter King and Ernie Pyle in the same sentence.

    The tough NY press is at it again.

    “Winning teams bitch at umpires and then do things like win the game, as the Yankees did on the day when Boone delivered his “f—ing savages” rant, which may well be remembered as the Gettysburg Address of his administration.”
