Would You Have Taken That Bet?

Heard this on The Ticket this morning: The last playoff win of the Dallas Cowboys was on December 28, 1996. If someone had come to you the very next day and said, "I'll bet you a million dollars that the U.S. will have a black president before the Cowboys win another playoff game", would you have taken the bet? Oh, yeah.

The bet is will we still have a black president when the cowboys get their next playoff win? Spin this any way you want to...any takers.The winner can just cut the money order in half?

Not to beat a dead horse but since we're talking about playoffs and championships (Bridgeport football), the Decatur Girls Cross Country team did something astonishing: they won the STATE CC Meet with a record-setting point total of 27 (perfect score is 15) WITH 4 (FOUR) freshmen!! That's 4 out of 7 varsity runners (57% of the team) which would be like the Bulls winning State with 13 freshmen starters! AND......for the record, Decatur runs all of their regular season meets in the 5A "Elite" classification so don't start throwing around the, "Well, they ARE 3A......." comments. UIL allows small teams to compete against the Big Dogs during the season and Decatur NEVER backs down....and does quite well!! Barry made an observation this summer about seeing some girls running around town early one morning....that's called dedication

I would have taken the bet if they had said a half black president. If he is half black and half white, why is he considered all black?

For the same reason that if your half drunk, you're considered drunk. Being white requires you to be all the way white. To be black you only have to hate whites. Read his books. He really doesn't like us.

I am shocked that 1:10 can read.

If you'd taken the bet, you'd still have a chance of winning. The NFL playoffs start January 3, 2009. Obama's inauguration isn't until January 20.

The question is, given the Cowboys' season so far, would you take that bet right now?

Damn, T.O. is BUTT UGLY!

wordy, congratulations! That may be your best post ever...factual and topical. See, you don't have to spare us to death with your twisted political interpretations and unwillingness to accept facts that you don't like. There may be hope for you yet.

I guess I've never seen someone spared to death

wordkyle said...

246 - The approval of someone who posts anonymously doesn't mean that much to me. I'd be interested in knowing what specifically in one of my posts "spared" you to death. Whatever it was, I apparently didn't do enough of it.

Yes I would have taken that bet because as long as Jerry Jones is the GM, the team will decline. He cannot evaluate talent and hangs his hat on signing renegade players who disrupt the team and by hiring weak coaches who will not stand up to him. (exception Parcells) I guess we are still looking for those 499 coaches who can win the Super Bowl.

So, other than the spelling, the name "wordkyle" is different than "anonymous" how?

Hey 3:11 - check out the movie "Zulu". Tons of englishmen get spared to death by Shaka Zulu's warriors. They mostly used those little short stabbing spares.
Good movie

greego's anonymous step cousin...........excellent point!!

327 - By internet standards, using a consistent screen name as I do is like JFK riding in a convertible. Easy target for anonymous posters on a grassy knoll. A person should have the courage to stand behind his words and take the consequences. Anonymous posters (including those who use a new screen name every time) carry no credibility with me. Sorry if that offends you.

I have to agree with those above. Wordkyle's first post was accurate, on point, and took some knowledge. A splendid departure for him, indeed. His later post (thinking, as someone pointed out, that giving yourself an odd name and posting a picture from the 50s makes you no longer anonymous) was a nonsensical as his normal posts. Wordkyle, you were doing so well!!!!

Enormo said...

I am certain that is TO from his crying press conference last year 3:42pm.

wordkyle said...

419 - The fact that you miss the point about the graven image of the world's greatest salesman says it all. See my previous comment on "anon" posters.

In other news, how about that lineup of "change" chosen by Obama so far? Rahm Emanuel, John Podesta, Tom Daschle, David Axelrod, Greg Craig. Looks like President-elect Barack Oclinton is more of the same old same old. Who could've predicted that? Hey, wait a minute...

Wordkyle - so you don't like the anon posters. So is Wordkyle your real name? If not, leave us anons alone.

wordkyle said...

525 - Look back at my original point - the approval (or disapproval) of anons does not mean much to me. And for what it's worth, your comparison is flawed. Posting anonymously is different from posting under a screenname.

You wordkyle haters are the biggest bunch of uneducated losers to grace an internet. It wouldn't take too much research to find out he is Kyle Word.(for you simpletons, see, if you take his real name and reverse the order, well, never mind, I'm sure this has already gone beyond your capacity to think). Seems he is a published author and an educated man, something which I believe precludes your claims of his anonimity. Sorry but most of you don't begin to measure up.

I will bet you that we will have a black WOMAN President before the Cowboys have won another Superbowl.

How much do you want to bet that 6:07 is actually Wordkyle commenting as 'anon'?

wordkyle said...

607 - LOL I'll take that bet. Discussions like this aren't worth the loss of self esteem I'd suffer by posting anonymously.

Anonymous said...

Hey , I'm 6:07 and you lose your bet, idiot. I tend to read everything, even stuff I don't agree with. Then I digest it all and come to conclusions. The rest of you losers don't seem to be able to grasp that concept. That is your loss and the reason Idiocracy is here now. What a waste of a perfecly good country

Obama is also a white president.

...8:24 - good one. I agree.

Michael Irvin???? I guess you're one of those "they all look alike" people.

Here's something I was thinking about just a little earlier:
