If you watched any professional football this Sunday, you probably saw the New England Patriots playing the Tennessee Titans in a blowing snow storm at Gillette stadium in Foxborough.
I watched the first three minutes (three minutes more than I usually watch) and saw two players get their knee and shoulder filleted and then helped off the field. Don’t get me started on professional sports. I think they all are concussive numbskulls calling assault and battery a “hard hit”. Shane! Shane! Come back, Shane! The Wild West wears athletic supporters, though. God forbid something should happen to THAT region of their cranium.
The stadium is fifteen minutes south of where I live and the storm started out as rain and by mid-afternoon was snow, flakes-the-size-of-quarters-snow, and some even larger.
Nothing tells me summer is over more than snow at the beach and the weekly publication of those on the Disabled List and, my personal favorite category: those listed as “Questionable”. I think Pixar should make a movie called, “The Questionables”, don’t you?
The superhero would be on crutches, arm in a sling, and head wrapped in bandages talking about respect.
Oh, yeah, and talking about how he’s questionable for next week’s game.
And, double-oh-yeah: talkin’ respect and questionables ONLY IF the coach allows him to speak at all, which come to think of it- oh-yeah the third time–that last one about free speech?
This constitutional right insures that Pixar’s superhero shall not be on the New England Patriots.
Belichick world (coach of the Patriots) is well known for operating without the First Amendment.
That’s not even a questionable.
It’s a fact–along with playing football in a snow storm is slippery.
