My advice for the football Dr. Phils…who choose to vent their wisdom on social media? Turn the sound down on the television, change the filter in the furnace, and let the rest of the world play the fool on Twitter.
My takeaway from the weekend just passed, and the outpouring of personal comments over the AFC and NFC title games is simply this.
How in the world did we get this far in civilization without having Twitter and Facebook?
Seriously, are we so love-starved as to watch Travis Kelce and Taylor Swift’s every move? The same people addicted to the Bachelorette?
Is anyone less of a feeling human…if they don’t upload some horrible-looking IPhone video of Kelce and Swift kissing?
Is there any possible way we can look ourselves in the eye without sharing with the world that Tony Romo is terrible as a commentator? Because he’s not terrible. And you can’t prove that he is.
And how stupid is it to track Taylor Swift’s schedule…concerned over whether she can get back to Vegas in time for the Super Bowl kickoff. Betting that she does…don’t you?
And if something doesn’t actually happen…how empty are we to speculate over how long Justin Tucker’s game-winning field goal will be?
Will there be life after Dan Dakich? I’ve read the Bible for years and never noticed his name…anywhere! The anti-Christ, maybe?
Is there any reason for Colin Cowherd to post this: “Early takeaway – Travis Kelce still appears to be serviceable” except that Colin Cowherd must be heard at all costs?
Do all of those thumping their chests over Joe Burrow’s dominance in the AFC North have the videos of Joe Burrow in the Super Bowl and last year’s AFC championship game. He looked rather pedestrian, actually, lying there flat of his back.
And thank God for Jim Rome…eh?
Watching the Harbaugh family chronicles was the point where I actually got up and changed the filter on the furnace.
I didn’t think there was any need to bring insight into Zay Flowers being Zay Flowers. NO amount of explaining is justification for making a fool of yourself and costing your team a football game.
In the middle of championship Sunday blather…the Pope dropped in a PSA on the world-wide state of leprosy. Timely…!
Some basement analyst with a tank top and a laptop shared this: Teams that commit a turnover while trailing by at least 7 points in a conference championship game are 5-41 since 1991. Now that’s ‘must have’ stuff.
And someone named Einstein must have written this: “Thinkin’ that it’s going to be tough for the Ravens to just shake this off.” No, really…?
More Dan Dakich: Flowers = karma. Oh…now I understand!
This tidbit from Adam Schefter, because none of us gets enough Adam Schefter: “Former Michigan and current Chargers’ head coach Jim Harbaugh is expected to attend Sunday’s AFC Championship Game to support his brother, Ravens’ head coach John Harbaugh.” Now why didn’t I think of that, myself?
And is there any need for anyone, or everyone, to talk about Lamar magic…before there actually is Lamar magic? And who’s surprised that there wasn’t?
Here’s an observation about pre-game trash-talking by the Baltimore fans. It would be best to wait until you actually win…before you call out Cincinnati.
And one last thought, because Joe Burrow shared on Twitter, “Let the guys taunt.” Now if he really believes that, is that the same Joe Burrow you hold up as role model to the impressionable youth, who you know are going to do exactly what Joe says as soon as they get the chance? And then you ask…what are we teaching our kids?
I read a lot of people on there that I know, personally. I just don’t know why. And between now and the Super Bowl I suggest..fix everything’s that broke in your house, watch the Weather Channel instead of Hannah Storm, and get a parakeet if you just have to tweet!
Your furnace will thank you.
