Fox News Keeps Up the Quality Journalism

In another example of why local news is one of the larger pimples on society, here is a hard-hitting local interest story from Boston’s Fox affiliate, Fox 25. The premise of the story, is that there is ANOTHER Tom Brady in Boston, and even more amazing, he plays football, plays quarterback and also hurt his left knee! The sheer odds of finding someone in Boston named Tom Brady, one of the largest Irish enclaves in the world must be ASTRONOMICAL. I wonder how long they spent researching this story. Also, being from the area, I can guarantee that the younger Brady is NOT scoring the same type of women as big Tom. Anyways, the kid Tom Brady has a good sense of humor about himself and all, but he brings up a good point, he might be in fact a voodoo doll for the real Tom Brady. Which means, just to be sure, we should probably keep kid Brady in a glass case from now on, I personally am laying the blame for Brady’s injury solely on young Brady and he better watch his steps from now on, because real Tom is significantly more important.

Romo’s Girlfriend is Gonna Get Him Hurt

It’s one thing for a player like Adam “Pacman” Jones to deride the quality of his upcoming opponents the Eagles, that’s something the Eagles can take in stride as part of the normal competitive nature of the NFL. So when Jones says he is unimpressed by 3 different Eagles receivers gaining 100 yards in their last game, saying “They played the Rams, dude,” that’s bulletin board fodder but also not inaccurate, both factually and of course in terms of the fact that the Rams are fucking terrible. However, it is quite another thing when one of the Cowboys’ girlfriends goes on national television and yells, “Go Cowboys!” and then referencing the Eagles, “That’s next week, we’re gonna kick your butts too!” That becomes much more than bulletin board material. Methinks that this Sunday when the Eagles linemen are pounding on Romo play after play that he might hear some course language referencing his ladyfriend whilst he lays prostrate upon the ground. Never fear though as I’m sure Jessica Simpson will be at the game in her ubiquitous pink jersey so at least the Cowboys have that going for them.

Rugby Can Be Entertaining if You Change the Commentary

Here’s another long clip, there isn’t a lot worthwhile in watching the whole thing unless you really dig rugby or are a huge fan of the New Zealand team, but there are a few funny moments in this “alternative commentary.” For one thing, the theme music is especially catchy, then the anthem and organized demonstrations are pretty amusing, but there isn’t much else exciting afterwards. However, the commentary immediately after the teams do their ceremonial dances before the game is pretty hilarious and is the main reason I posted this, so after about 2:50 don’t feel you need to continue along the long journey.
