blank'/> Liberally Lean From The Land Of Dairy Queen: Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts

Random Tuesday Morning Thoughts


  • The first question by ESPN to winning  Alabama coach Nick Saban concerned what his deceased father would think of the win. I soooo wanted Saban to say, "Did you seriously just ask that?"
  • New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, with Mitt Romney at his side, says something pretty shocking to a female heckler. (And what size is his belt? "Equator"?)
  • Hostess filed for bankruptcy/reorganization. Do they make Ding Dongs?
  • Ticket fans: If you are being driven insane by those Sweetjack commercials and wondering why that company we spend so much on advertising, look who owns both the Ticket and Sweetjack.
  • Mrs. LL upon seeing the new Tom Hanks movie trailer last night (as I sat beside her not paying attention): "You want to see that?" Me: "Uh...I'd have to see the trailer again." Her: "Back it up then." Me: "I don't want to see it that badly." Her: [Glaring]
  • A popular doctor at Cook's Children's Hospital dies at the age of 51 after falling off of his bike. I bet that news made lots and lots of families stop down across the metroplex.
  • As the Right Wing realizes that Mitt Romney is nothing other than John McCain 2.0, I bet Newt Gingrich makes one last big run at the nomination before everything is said and done. 
  • Pastor Ed Young of Fellowship Church (one of the hip mega-churches in the metroplex) will spend 24 hours in bed with his wife on the roof of the church to promote their new book, "Sexperiment." It's a modern day money-changer in the Temple, isn't it? (If they were to get hit by lightning, I'd absolutely believe it was a bolt directly from God.) 
  • I don't think I've ever seen so much high school basketball coverage in the Update. (And I'm not real sure much of the county is worried about Slidell's streak --- no offense to the loyal readers in Slidell.) 
  • Baylor could have scored on Alabama. They might have been beaten 70-7, but they could have at least scored. 
  • Snoop Dogg gets arrested in Texas for marijuana possession. The most interesting thing about the story is that he just received the equivalent of a traffic ticket for the Class C offense of Possession of Drug Paraphernalia (like possessing a roach clip, bong, or rolling papers). But the story says he had over two ounces of marijuana which should be a Class A misdemeanor (the equivalent of DWI-Second, Theft of $500, Assault-Bodily Injury, etc.)
  • Mrs. LL asked me what note we should put in The Family Cat's collar. I suggested, "This is a suicide mission. Help a kitty out."

Christie was priceless. I wish our King Obamy could be so cool. (And enough with your fat jokes--Not.Funny)

I think all those jobs that Gov. Chris Christie said they created are just more employees at his local McDonalds. They need more to keep him fed...

BCS:
I don't see how anybody can say last night's game was boring. If you like to see lots of exciting scoring plays, how can you not appreciate the great effort involved in stopping the best team in the nation from scoring at all? It's like Musberger said: "This is one of the great defensive displays of all time."
And folks were complaining because they didn't want a rematch of the previous meeting. Well, the play was similar, but the outcome was different, so...necessary. Bama moved the ball well and LSU kept them out of the end zone, so they took what they could get - field goals. And Bama totally shut down the highest scoring team in the SEC.
This wasn't the same as some lame midseason NFL snoozer between Kansas City and Seattle.
It would have been interesting to see what the Stillwater Cowboys or Baylor could have done against that defense, but they didn't win enough games or have a tough enough schedule to get there

How can everyone miss the obvious? It is Christie going down on Romney.

I was a little surprised by the Sweet Jack/Ticket comments on Twitter yesterday. I didn't think it was any big secret. When they started sending out their daily emails to Ticket listeners, they advertised it as a Cumulus owned company. And don't they play a little Cumulus-owned sounder in the commercials?

OSU did not deserve to play for BCS title, they lost to an unranked team Hello!!

I didn't realize Christie was that fat! What a porker!!! Could we ever trust anyone with that kind of eating disorder?? We won't have to worry about him in 2016, he will be dead of a heart attack.

Well BG our alma mater can lay claim to a title it has not had in modern history--best college football team in Texas. The final polls are out and BU is the top rated Texas team in all (AP 13th, Coaches 12th, BCS 12th, SI 13th) but one (Harris--TCU is 15th and BU is 16th). Let the festivities begin.

Why haven't we heard anything about the baby who was killed back in December? The last I heard was that the investigation was going nowhere. How can a baby be abused and die and no one be held accountable? I think we can safely assume the baby did not cause her own death.

Triple Fake, you must be an SEC fan.

While the defenses last night were very good and full of fantastic athletes, Jordan Jefferson (the QB for LSU) was absolutely horrible. Bama had something to do with that, but more often than not, he just didn't make open throws and made the wrong reads on the option and elsewhere.

I watched enough bad quarterback play this year (HookEm) to know the difference.

I suggest you search Twitter for #ThingsBetterThanJeffersonAtQB from last night.

I'd suggest there were several teams that could score on Alabama: Boise St, Stanford, Oregon, Baylor, Ok St. Don't know which might beat them but at least could score touchdowns. LSU couldn't in 2 games. SEC may be over-rated by incestuous scheduling.

Vast consensus of College Football is that last nights BSC Nat Champ was terrible.

We saw a superb defense on the field with a good defense, two decent offenses, a decent special teams, a shaky special teams and an ESPN crew trying desperately to keep ratings up.

It was a baaaaaaaad game. We expect that from two dregs in the middle of a season; not in the BCS Champ game.

Please, please, please get a playoff system in here.

(and I don't give a rats behind if OSU didn't deserve to be there. They would have been infinitely more entertaining than that slop last night.)

IMHO... Mega Church with Pastor bit on roof? Just dramatic entertainment. Less performance, more substance please.

So a baby dies and somebody MUST be to blame? You idiots ever heard of SIDS? Or an accident? People, including babies, die all the time out of accident or negligence which doesn't rise to the level of criminal fault.

not an SEC fan, or LSU, nor Tide

Things not (or mostly not) Jefferson's fault last night:
39 total yards rushing
return yardage - 1
5 penalties
dropped passes

LSU did shoot themselves in the foot at times, and they did resemble our anemic offensively-challenged local NFL franchise. But it was the defense's dominance, not Jefferson's inability, that decided this game.

If you demand lots of scoring in a game, go check out Arena League

Hey Bubear, just a thought...

The next time Mrs. LL asks you if you want to see something, you may want to go along with her. It could work out to your mutual benefit.

Triple Fake, I'll grant you that Jefferson had nothing to do with the return game (and special teams in general), defensive penalties, and some dropped passes.

But, his inability to make throws allowed the Bama defense to sell out on the run. He was no threat in the passing game whatsoever and that does negatively impact the running game. Additionally, his poor handling of the option is a directly responsible for some of the failure in the running game.

The Bama defense is really good. Maybe they're the best in college football this year, but last night was not one of those fantastic performances to tell the grandkids about. LSU left yards and points on the field due to Jefferson's horrible night. Bama played a defensive scheme that dared Jefferson to beat them...he couldn't.

you mean the way nobody ever mentions the great defensive performance of the '85 Chicago Bears?

Almost everything you said indicates that it will be talked about for a long time. I'm not saying the game was fantastic, but it was memorable

I didn't know the '85 Bears won the BCS title. Can you provide a reference?

If they did, the Dems were behind it.

Bacon's a little off, today. The gal on the left is thinking "I remember when I was that young. But I'm still sluttier."

Mr. Mike Honcho said...

Jefferson could not throw.

Jefferson could not sell the option well enough to make it do anything.

What are you left with? A Bama D who pins their ears back. And a boring game.

There was a reason all the LSU fans were booing. And a reason for all the pundits, fans, and media calling the game a travesty.

We're talking about things that will be remembered thirty years from now, and great defensive performances, not just BCS games. Now go cut daddy a switch. You need to be whupped from one end of the yard to the other. It's for your own good for trying to inject lame political commentary, and taking a swipe at WK in the process

Liberal tolerance is showing again. I guess only beautiful people have anything to contribute to society. If you are not perfect, then don't participate, your contribution is not needed.
