Twice a Senior

27 10 2014

Tallahassee, Florida

ESPN:

The Tallahassee Police Department is investigating an alleged domestic assault involving Florida State running back Karlos Williams, the agency said in a news release issued Monday.

Williams, a senior from Davenport, Florida, is being investigated for allegedly assaulting his girlfriend, who lives with him and is pregnant with the couple’s second child, according to people familiar with the investigation.

Two kids before he even draws his first professional football paycheck.  Though I hear Florida State football pays pretty well, just not well enough for the star quarterback to afford supermarket crab legs.

Above is just a general head shot.  Below is his jersey from the back.

And that’s him, because Karlos Williams wears #9.

Notice anything weird about the second pic?





It’s Hot Today

Chapel Hill, North Carolina

It’s like going to Death Valley on any given day in July and commenting about how hot it is today.

No kidding.

This mentions Mary Willingham.  While she “officially” resigned, she was really driven outAnd you know why.

And also, some of these “ten-page papers” were nowhere near one page, much less ten.

I would say here that maybe one of these days, we’ll quit lying to ourselves and everyone else.  Except sometimes the truth isn’t handier because it’s uncomfortable if not totally off limits.





Da Man Sticks It To Da Man

Los Angeles

ESPN:

A week after posting his thoughts on the NBA’s new television contract on Twitter, Kobe Bryant expounded on the subject Tuesday after the Los Angeles Lakers’ practice, going to far as to say that players “are overpaid, but so are the owners. And you have to fight for what your market value is.”

Duh Kobe.

Reminds me of this commercial from a few years back.

Owners, vicariously through the teams they own, pay the players.  The owners themselves already made a lot of money through some other means in order to have enough money to buy the teams or percentage shares thereof.  Kobe Bryant was once said to be smart enough to go to college on an academic scholarship if he wanted.  Yet, genius can’t grok the difference between employee and independently wealthy.

And that important distinction amounts to important leverage in the upcoming NBA labor dispute.





Can’t Afford Underwear

…makes $495,000 this season, yet he felt the need to shoplift underwear and cologne.

What was he planning to do with underwear and cologne?  Maybe he wanted to give his teammate Michael Sam a gift.





Luxury Good

Lausanne, Switzerland

Me, more than four years ago:

Something has to be done with the Olympics, because each one gets progressively more expensive and debt-inducing.  It’s unsustainable.  I think Vancouver is going to be the closest that any games get to the United States for a very long time.

Well, the unsustainable chickens are coming home to roost.





The Conscience of Football

Austin, Texas

He is someone my grandfather would consider a kindred spirit in a lot of ways, except for that most obvious one.  My grandfather always said that you don’t have to put up with bullshit that you don’t tolerate to begin with.

Interesting is:

Strong has advantages that other coaches don’t: He’s new on the job, meaning he has a honeymoon period; he has tons of recruiting talent all around him in Texas; and he has perhaps more in the way of money and resources than any other head coach in the country. He can afford to make this kind of statement.

On top of that, he has another very obvious advantage.  It’s the one that’s as plain is the nose on your face.  It means that he can get away with disciplining and dismissing blacks without “racism” and “disparate impact” sticking to him.  That’s why he can enforce his core values of “Honesty,” “Respect for women,” “No drugs,” “No stealing” and “No guns” (you may hiss at the last one, but remember you’re dealing with a lot of 19-year old blacks) even though enforcing them disproportionately affects blacks because they disproportionately disobey them.

The one thing he has to worry about is the football cult.  If Texas doesn’t start turning in some impressive seasons soon, then the boosters, alumni and football cultists will push decency out the door.  Or maybe the dream scenario is that Texas football becomes a whitopia, or as much of one that is even possible in the realm of modern major college football.





Barry Called Jesse and Al

New York

That’s a good point that a lot of people, including myself, are noticing.

You’d think the justice brothers brigade would be screaming to high hell.  Truly, there is a disparate impact on blacks that comes of the hoopla about NFL player domestic violence and child abuse.

So why are Jesse and Al silent?  I think it goes something like this:  President Obama used the phone component of his pen and phone to call them both, to tell them to stuff it for awhile, because the media are peddling this hoopla to dog whistle “war on women” to turn out single white women for Democrats in November.  Must not create a wreck at the intersectionality of gender and race in Libtard City during the high traffic hours that are election season.

If my theory is right, then look for the hoopla from the low information news and sports media to die down after November 4.
