Not A Good Time For Pro Sports in Tennessee

Posted by Joel on April 28, 2008

So how did ol’ Bud Adams and the Titans do in this year’s draft??? Do the letters WTF mean anything???

One glaring need for QB Vince Young and the Titans offense was a wide receiver. Everyone from Mel “Royal Crown” Kiper to Helen Keller could see that the Titans needed a receiver. So with the #24 pick in the 1st round, and every receiver still available, the Titans draft RB Chris Johnson from East Carolina. That’s right, a running back from that football factory of East Carolina is who GM Mike Reinfeldt chose. Typical. But don’t worry, Tennessee did draft a wideout, Lavelle Hawkins from Cal. Yes they could have had DeSean Jackson from Cal, but apparently this group of so-called NFL “personnel experts” decided not to. Plus, the reviews on all of their draft picks haven’t been stellar. This guy wasn’t even the dreaded “best player available”. Plus the Titans have decided to “Go Green”. No, they are not gonna add barf bags to the seats and recycle the puke from whenever the offense stalls again. They are putting grass in one of the parking lots in LP Field. At least my uncle, a season ticket holder, will be able to drink his beer and eat his ribs in the shade with the rest of his friends instead of pissing on the concrete.

But at least the Titans made the playoffs last year, something the Memphis Grizzlies won’t do for at least another 4 years, if then. They completed yet another year in the toilet. The offense wasn’t bad, but the defense was like Michael Vick using Chicken George as his lawyer. Probably, just like last year, the Grizzlies will get a lottery pick that they will do nothing with and trade away another player in-season (see Mike Miller) for a complete set of “Charles in Charge” on DVD, just so the player can be treated to Willie Aames’ perm daily.

On a lighter note, if you really want to call it that, I got a survey from the Memphis Grizzlies wanting to know how I feel about the sponsors of the team??? How do I feel??? I feel sorry for the sponsors of this poor excuse of a professional franchise. You have a coaching staff and front office that have no clue how to get out of its own way. If I were a ticket salesman for this team, I would quit my job than try to lie to potential season ticket holders about the “game day experience” of seeing the Memphis Grizzlies. Keep in mind, for some reason, I am still one of the 287 fans of this pathetic franchise. What is gonna be the next great Grizzlies game day promotion, redneck tractor pull???

***Note: I did not include the Nashville Predators in this post. The only time hockey matters is when a fight breaks out. Maybe is someone made the rink into an octagon (UFC style) it would be more interesting…

EA Sports Grows Tired of Cursing the Younger Players

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on April 28, 2008

Everyone knows about the “curse” that is associated with those unlucky souls who grace the cover of EA Sports Madden NFL games. The list is countless. Well…let me rephrase that. The list is countless if your name is Jerrell Powe…since the list only goes up to twenty.

August 12 marks the 20th anniversary of the highly successful video gamee. EA Sports, seemed to have grown tired of cursing the younger players has decided to prey on the old instead. Former Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Favre. Having announced his retirement in early March, Favre becomes the first non-active player to appear on the game’s cover.

This is going to destroy Farve’s retirement plans. The Curse will live…

Favre’s legacy is cemented as one of the most beloved players of his generation and has announced a retirement only to back out more than anyone in NFL history. The future Hall of Famer is the league’s only three-time Most Valuable Player and he holds the NFL record for most consecutive starts for quarterbacks. He completed his 17-year career as the NFL’s all-time leader in touchdowns, completions, attempts, yards, and wins.

WOW! I guess John Madden really does have the world’s biggest MAN CRUSH on Brett Fav-re. I swear, he would adopt Brett if he could or let Brett adopt him. In all honesty, though, I think the BEST tribute for the 20th Madden would have been the Manning Brothers. Not even in uniform, just standing there with their Super Bowl rings on…

If Farve decides to come back to fill in for an “injured” Rodgers, he will truly be cursed. Stay retired. (See: Jordan)

Bottom line is Chuck Norris should be on the bloody cover.
