Anyway, finally got a few things to write about as it’s been a pretty hectic week.
* First, lots of e-mails and friends asking me why I haven’t bashed this Christensen kid for being a possible felon and sex predator. Look, I may be a monster and one of the most vile and evil people in the sports Internet commentary business…..but I’m not about to go mocking some girl getting sexually assaulted by some freak-ass football player. I mean, it's still somebody's daughter and/or sister we're talking about here...one who will probably be scarred for a long long time. (allegedly)
Look, eventually I’m going to add this guy to the never-ending list of Husker criminals and deviants that have been Gods to you people at one time or another. And I’m also going to condone any and all verbal and printed assaults on this kid (if he’s convicted). However, the nature of this crime is so awful, that it’s really not even worth mentioning….at least not yet.
What is worth mentioning is well beyond the simple fact that apparently this guy can’t either a) hold his liquor or b) score with chicks on his own as an NU football player that he has to go out and assault one. Now again, he is innocent until proven guilty, but let the record show this is somewhat of a pattern for your players over the years.
Also worth mentioning is the fact that SOMEBODY posted $50,000 worth of bail for this guy and that person was never mentioned. Hmmmmmm….wonder who that could have been? His family? A local bail-bond shop? Perhaps a local booster? Look, Tom Osborne isn’t an idiot. (boring and hypocritical…but not an idiot…although he was an idiot for going for 2 against Miami in 84, but that’s besides the point.) Tom Osborne knows how to cover this stuff up, and for anybody to be shocked or outraged about the money falling from the sky to bail this kid out is kidding themselves. (And no, NOBODY is shocked or outraged…they simply let it float under the rug like any other Husker run-in with the law). That’s OK, I’m sure some local TV reporter is going to risk the one good gig he has all year worth a crap to expose the truth about the Husker mystery bondsman.
Another thing worth watching is King Bo himself. It’s one thing to talk tough and say you’re going to lay down the law…it’s quite another to go ahead and do it. Besides…wasn’t it your last coach who promised to get down to the truth and lay down the law against Mo Purify? And what did Mo get for punishment? A couple of extra laps and an afternoon off against a barely 1A team? I’ve been there and seen that. Dazzle me with actions…not words. Then, I’ll let it be.
* For the love of God and all things Holy, stop talking about this hooker from New York. She’s a whore…literally. I realize stuff happens, people come from broken homes and blah blah blah. But Entertainment Tonight should NOT be talking about this chick and her music career. (And no, I’m not joking…it was actually reported that some shitty single of hers was going to be released as a single. If that doesn’t tell you how far pop culture is in this country…nothing will.)
This girl (and the scumbag, lying hypocritical piece of shit she banged for 8 grand) needs to go away and go away fast. Next thing you know, girls are going to shoot for being extra slutty and skanky, just to further their careers and….ehhh….OK…nevermind.
* The Rosenblatt saga continues this week, with another group of frustrated and bored geeks, pulling signatures together to impeach the Mayor of Omaha. Apparently these people either have no education or social skills whatsoever…or they just having a raging ink fetish.
Does anybody in that camp have any idea what they’re doing? Don’t’ they realize the NCAA will knee them in the junk and hustle on out of town in about 3 seconds? Are there people out there REALLY this butt-ass stupid? I mean….that’s like somebody petitioning the government to make them dump more pollution into the Missouri river. It makes absolutely no sense whatsoever.
* Tune in next week when I pretend what I WOULD HAVE DONE had I had the opportunity to buy NCAA basketball tourney tickets at the Qwest Center. FORTUNATELY for me, Bruce Rassmussen and the rest of the Creighton athletic department were kind enough to spare me the agony of spending $53 bucks a session and are letting me spend quality time at home with my family.
Thanks Bruce, we’re so lucky to have you.
