In today's Curious Index, Spencer Hall over at Every Day Should Be Saturday threw in this little gem about Mike Rosenberg's commentary regarding the Cam Newton situation.
Michael Rosenberg, better known to the world as the man who would connect Somali food supply instability to Rich Rodriguez's improper and excessive use of athletic tape on Michigan's shoulder pads, takes the ice to the tune of Nickelbacks "Hurrg Gurngle Fartbuckle Urngh" 'and executes a perfect triple Salchow of stupidity.
What I find remarkable is that, if all of this is true, the under-the-table payments are what would upset people the most. I mean, yes, it is against NCAA rules. But in any other segment of society, if a college kid found a way to use his talents to bring in money to support his father's church, he would be a hero. There would be glowing newspaper profiles and probably a few humanitarian awards. If a kid does it in college football, he's a villain.
There are few words. But the one that comes to mind is HOLYFUCKROSENBERGYOUGODDAMNHYPOCRITE. On the bright side, I am reminded again of how much I like Spencer Hall.
