Am I Not Offensive Enough?
Maybe I need to insult Penn State again. The biggest response I've ever gotten is when I called Joe Paterno a rat-faced score-running-up bully who was able to cover up his players' crimes for 40 years until recently... which he is.
Let's see, who else can I insult... The Dallas Cowboys, or Manchester United? Nah, too easy: Glory-hunting cunts, who are too stupid to accept it as anything other than a compliment.
The Red Sox? Better yet, Sox fans. Yeah, you loved Nomar Garciaparra, until the steroids stopped working, then your team dumped him, and then you "won." You chowdahead bastards, it's Bill Buckner who needed to forgive you, not the other way around. Hell, Johnny Pesky forgave you for the way you treated him from 1946 to 2004, I guess Billy Bucks can as well.
The purpose of a blog is to spread one's opinions. Brag on your own teams and smack around other people's.
So my problem is that I'm not offending enough people. How can I offend more?
I could call Sarah Palin a moron, Chris Christie a fat heartless bastard, and the "Tea Partiers" a bunch of fascist bigots... but then, politics is only a hobby with me.
Maybe I could get a few Canadian readers by calling Sidney Crosby a diving little twat. Yeah, I know, he's the best player in the world and he just won the Gold Medal with his overtime winner... but tonight, the New Jersey Devils beat his Pittsburgh Penguins, 3-1 at the Prudential Center. Sid the Skid scored for the Pens, but for the Devils, the lamp was lit by Patrik Elias, Andy Greene and Ilya Kovalchuk. Marty Brodeur turned back 34 of 35 shots. The attendance was a full house of 17,625, and Ranger fans, as always, can kiss my Garden State ass.
Maybe I could get a few extra Devils fans to read this by pointing out my favorite hockey team's flaws. For example, whenever the Devils win on Friday night at home, and the next game is the following night, a Saturday at the Nassau Coliseum against the pathetic Islanders, the Devils always manage to fuck it up. Especially if I've made my way across the Raritan, Rahway, Elizabeth, Passaic, Hackensack, Hudson and East Rivers and onto The Island. (I won't be in the Nassau Mausoleum tomorrow night, so maybe the Devils have a chance to win this one.)
Who knows. If I knew as much as I think I do, I wouldn't be blogging on this site, I'd be doing a show on WFAN.
I could call it "Mike IS the Mad Dog." The sad part is, that's already an old joke.
