Sunday’s asshat competition is getting heated

I wasn’t having much fun watching the Titans today because they are obviously children of a lesser football god in comparison to much of the league, including today’s nemesis, the Cowboys, but my enjoyment went into negative numbers when I saw Albert Haynesworth actually stomp an opponent in the head AFTER Haynesworth had yanked the helmet off of the ‘stompee’ opposing center Andre Gurode. Albert will be missing a few games, most likely, and a whole lot of Benjamin’s from his upcoming paycheck. I really thought Haynesworth had matured. The only Titan who benefits from this is Pacman, and that is only because he no longer is the numero uno ‘bad guy’. Seriously, this was a shameful shameful episode, and I’ll be curious to see how Fisher et al handle this situation.

The only thing uglier than Haynesworth today was reading a few of the IMs from Congressman Mark Foley to the 16 year old young page. If you had any doubt about the salaciousness of the exchange, read THIS. The ugliness extends to the cover-up that appears to have been ongoing for the past few months. I don’t equate Foley’s behaviour with any political party. If Foley had been a Democrat rather than a GOP, I have little doubt that some would decry the Dems as patrons of sexual predatry.

Which leads me to ‘asshat’ #3. I don’t know the blogger behind Dixie Thoughts. He chooses to remain anonomous, and I respect that choice based on the reasons he enumerates on his blog. He may be a perfectly nice guy, great family man and a good neighbor, but when he paints an entire party, the Democrats, as ‘HATING’ children based on statistics showing the birthrate for Republicans is greater than Democrats, he deserves at least an honorary ‘Asshat’. For those of us who have children and love them more than we love anything in our existence, these words are insensitive, outlandish, and just plain idiotic. For those of us who may not have children but who love their families, the words are equally hurtful. As Brittney points out in her comment to the original post, the timing couldn’t be any worse, considering the news I’ve discussed in the previous paragraph.

Can we please refrain from making statements that contains the words ‘(fill in the blank) are all selfish, racist, idiots, fascists, socialists, egotists, or think that ‘9/11 is just about us’, to quote someone else who tends to generalize. I don’t care if your word is Democrat, Republican, Liberal, Conservative, white people, hispanic people, immigrants, black people, or Titans. It just isn’t true, and you oughta quit the bullshit.

Thank you.

  1. All white liberal hispanic immigrants are conservatives. 😉

    And I was so pissed at the Albert Haynesworth thing, too.

    But I got a camcorder today! 😉

  2. i’m glad SOMEBODY is having a good day!

    those dang white liberal hispanic immigrants are really getting on my last nerve (o:

    congrats on the camcorder, are you going to be in competition with Blake W?

  3. As much as I adore Jeff Fisher, it is obvious that he has lost COMPLETE CONTROL of his team. If he had control, there isn’t a soul on that team who would even consider doing what Haynesworth did. He should be booted out of the NFL and thrown in jail for aggravated assault.

  4. Jim thinks Haynesworth should be fired. I agree.

    I doubt I’ll be in competition with Blake because his stuff ROCKS! But expect to see some “happy family videos” from me soon. OK, maybe just family videos, forget the happy part. 😉

    And I agree with Ginger, Fisher needs to get control of those boys.

  5. I don’t have anything meaningful to say about the Titans. I don’t give a shit about football, although I think it’s nice when they win.

    The point of my comment is only to say that the word “asshat” is one of the funniest words I know.

  6. Could somebody give me the definition of “asshat”? Does that mean the top of his head is an ass? Just wondering…

  7. From urbandictionary.com

    Asshat

    One who has their head up their ass. Thus wearing their ass as a hat.

  8. Asshat is my favorite.There is another which I will reserve to say when I meet all of you again. And, yeah, it has the F bomb in it.
    And yeah, Dixie Thought.No comment. Made my thoughts known on NiT.
    And I may have a special friend on Monday come to visit for my b’day weeklong celebration, so good day for me.
    Yay!

  9. LOL…love that…I shall add it to my vernacular as of today.

  10. A “sorry I got carried away” does not even get close to saying “I’m sorry” for a face stomp.
