Two Football Fans and the video that humiliated them both

tcr! · Nov 24, 2012 at 3:00 pm

Brian Downing and Garrison Stamp

OTL: LSU-Bama fans, the last time they met

It’s Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2012, and around the world, but mostly in the South, thousands of people Garrison Stamp and Brian Downing don’t know (and more every minute!) are watching a video of some guy in an Alabama hat and some passed-out guy in an LSU T-shirt, wondering who they are and what the hell they were thinking. But Stamp and Downing are blissfully oblivious to all of that. They’re still anonymous. They’re 700 miles apart from each other, each enjoying a quiet morning in his respective suburban home.

Stamp, an 18-year-old college student on the final day of winter break, is packing up and looking forward to getting back to LSU, back to another semester of rooting for the Tigers. Downing, a 32-year-old new father with a job that keeps him on the road more than he’d like, is playing with his adorable 4-month-old son and talking with his wife about what they need at Target.

As each moment passes, more people are laughing at these guys. More people are disgusted or amazed. More (perhaps even you, dear reader) are judging them one way or another. On message boards, a debate is under way about whether Downing committed a vulgar, drunken prank or a sex crime. Blogs, Twitter feeds and Facebook pages are awash in speculation. Stamp is rumored to be dead.

Settle in, it’s a long painful article.

30-60 Years For That Jerry Sandusky Sonofabitch

tcr! · Oct 10, 2012 at 10:35 am

Jerry Sandusky sentenced to 30 to 60 years in prison

Jerry Sandusky sentenced to 30 to 60 years in prison

BELLEFONTE, Pa. - Jerry Sandusky rested his elbows on the wooden lectern and leaned toward the judge. He didn’t speak of remorse or plead for leniency, as many convicted felons do at sentencing. Instead, the former assistant football coach launched into a rallying speech, the type he might have once presented during an especially tough game at Penn State, where some remember him as “Touchdown Jerry.”

“We’re definitely in the fourth quarter now,” said Sandusky, 68, who was convicted in June on 45 counts of sexually abusing 10 young boys. “We will continue to fight. There’s much to fight.”

Fuck that sonofabitch.

Not long enough for that sonofabitch IMHO.

Castration comes to mind.

I have a bit of consolation that he is going into the general population. They will make the rest of his life a living hell.

Yep, he very well could be literally a tight end, for the first few minutes anyway.

WSJ - Argument for Banning College Football

tcr! · May 9, 2012 at 10:00 am

Why College Football Should Be Banned

Why College Football Should Be Banned

In more than 20 years I’ve spent studying the issue, I have yet to hear a convincing argument that college football has anything do with what is presumably the primary purpose of higher education: academics.

That’s because college football has no academic purpose. Which is why it needs to be banned. A radical solution, yes. But necessary in today’s times.

Almost half actually cost the schools money.

Clint Eastwood - GQ Interview and Chrysler Super Bowl Ad

tcr! · Feb 6, 2012 at 9:10 pm

Leonardo Dicaprio and Clint Eastwood GQ October 2011

Leonardo Dicaprio and Clint Eastwood GQ October 2011

Clint Eastwood: I was an Eisenhower Republican when I started out at 21, because he promised to get us out of the Korean War. And over the years, I realized there was a Republican philosophy that I liked. And then they lost it. And libertarians had more of it. Because what I really believe is, Let’s spend a little more time leaving everybody alone. These people who are making a big deal out of gay marriage? I don’t give a fuck about who wants to get married to anybody else! Why not?! We’re making a big deal out of things we shouldn’t be making a deal out of.

I’ve had this linked saved for quite awhile (have no clue how I stumbled on it, not a GQ fan) but seeing Eastwood in the Chrysler Super Bowl ad reminded me of it.

The Outlaw Josey Wales was my introduction and I’ve had nothing but respect for him since.


Elsewhere:

  • Chrysler spokesman Eastwood was critic of auto bailout
    “We shouldn’t be bailing out the banks and car companies,” actor, director and Academy Award winner Eastwood told the Los Angeles Times in November 2011. “If a CEO can’t figure out how to make his company profitable, then he shouldn’t be the CEO.”

FOOTBALL Important?

tcr! · Dec 1, 2011 at 11:30 am

I’ve always said that it bugs me that people talk about football like it’s important.

The tone of voice, the language, the emotion, the sheer amount of time they devote to it, is unsettling to me. I sense a subtle but not non-existent message that if I don’t share their opinion about it, that there is something wrong with me. Especially from men. I can’t count how many times conversations have been ended when I say bluntly that I don’t follow football and I don’t care.

It’s completely unavoidable to not say that there is a clear message of homophobia coming from many of them. Since I’m trying to be serious, I won’t say most, but I stand by many.

In my opinion, it’s not much of a leap to say that men that have this kind of attitude are making a LOUD statement about their own sexual problems. They admire, let’s face it, at least subtly worship men who want to wrassle and tackle and point butts at each other. These are all activities that are tops on my list of things I don’t want to do with other men.

As usual, I go overboard trying to make a point. I’ve suggested, and am not prepared to say in this piece how much I was joking or how serious I am, that football is a pantheon to homosexuality. Nothing more than a thinly disguised attempt to organize homosexuality.

I guess I want to go on record as saying that I stand by my exaggerations.

And this reverence for football (reverence was a careful word choice, and I can’t agree with it more) is to blame for the Sandusky-Penn State scandal. Hyphenating the names of Sandusky and Penn are intentional as hell. The aforementioned reverence makes the two inseparable.

The people who I’ve indicted in my opening paragraphs are to blame for this tragedy. Because they hold football, and therefore Sandusky, in reverence, they made it an offense, tantamount to heresy, to report a FOOTBALL HERO.

They helped rape children.

Think I’m wrong?

Why do you suppose presidents of universities, and other high ranking university officials have been fired? Held accountable.

Thinking people, people of conscience, know. There is something dreadfully wrong here. These are the kinds of days that change things. Religions are changed when someone says the emperor has no clothes. And in fact the reason he’s naked is to rape a boy.

Football has always pissed me off in it's relationship to colleges. I went to Oklahoma State and honestly it was almost a religion in that area. If the physics department was destroyed in an accident I doubt they would replace it with the effort and money put into the football program.

I seriously cannot stand watching much about the Penn State stuff. All I can say is when (not if) Sandusky goes to jail I hope the inmates treat him well.

I follow football to a degree, I also follow baseball and soccer. But they all are forms of entertainment and people need to treat them as such. People do not have priorities straight at times it seems when they can overlook a blatant child molester because they do not want to lose a football game/championship or alumni funding.
