Drew Sharp just chimed in!

So the Freep just posted an article by Drew Sharp. Fairly uninteresting. Since I know many are protesting the Freep by not clicking onto their site, let me summarize....

Blah, Blah, Blah.....Rodriguez looks worried....Words, Words, Words....Saying everyone does it isn't good enough....More words...doesn't work when you tell that to a cop that pulled you over for speeding....MORE DRIVEL.....Rodriguez will be fired if he's found guilty as charged.

Frankly, I was expecting far worse.

Haha. I had a case of the Mondays, and it was a long Monday. I'm not sure why, but I really loved the "Blah Blah Blah." That may sum up Drew Sharp and co.

All I know is two things:

(1) My girlfriend just asked if Michigan will be OK, and I got to talk about Michigan football for 20 minutes and when I finally thought I was rambling too much, she said, it was fine, please keep going. I love it.

(2) I get to watch Michigan football destroy my old man's alma mater this Saturday.

Dude! You play the vulnerable rap in that situation.

/ahem

"I don't know babe, I just don't know"

/whimper

"I'm...just feel so bad for coach..."

/pause to gain composure

"...you know? What's he supposed to do?"

/Let awkward silence build.

She comes in for the comes in for comfort, and bamn! Lay-up. But, you do still have to seal the deal which is woman dependent and situational...so you're on you're own there.

Then you talk football (and ask her to bring you a drink).

ah well...maybe next time.

That is nice. This is your warning: if you give her a ring, she no longer has to pretend that everything you think is cool is interesting.

On the other hand, if you are ardent enough, her concern for your sanity may extend the conversation a bit longer. They don't want to hear your reasoning for why a coach of a sports team did or did not make his players practice too much, but they are very interested in whether the fixes-things-person is going to take himself out of service.

In the awesome vastness of the universe, where quantum uncertainty rules over every last subatomic particle, we are assured of only three things:

- Oswald acted alone.

- The Batman always wins. Put him in a locked room with Superman, Wonder Woman or any of the other super-powered folk, and by the time they wake from unconsciousness he’ll be back in the Batcave, sipping on some herbal tea delivered by his English manservant while reading Criminal Forensics Quarterly. Why? Because he’s better than you, and everyone else. Seriously, you might think that it’s just good ol’ Bruce Wayne in that penthouse apartment, humping that socialite atop a bearskin rug in front of a roaring fire, but in the middle of it he’s going to look up, stare at the mantle, and think: “A CLUE.” And then you’ll know.

- Drew Sharp’s column will be incredibly stupid. I mean, reading his writing is like watching retarded people fuck. It’s both amazing and horrifying. Part of you wants to see the end, wondering if something so insane can reach….ahem….fruition, and the other part knows that you’re scarring yourself for life.

So, I suggest folks stop linking to DS, stop worrying about what he writes, and stop checking out the Freep in general. This is what they want, people.

Drew Sharp could write an article saying we're all going to get handjobs from Keira Knightley and Michigan will go undefeated forever and he'd still be a fucking douche.

Yeah, it appears the Freep is really trying to force this issue by pumping out as many pieces as it can. As far as I've seen, other news sources are being balanced and objective about the situation. Sharp et al keep coming out with headlines like "Rodriguez could lose job." The Freep was faced with the decision that presidential campaigns are faced with when a campaign rep goes off message and sticks his foot in his mouth: cut him loose or throw all your weight behind him. They've obviously decided to pursue the latter strategy.

I emailed the Freep's Shawn Windsor last night after he "recapped" the reactions to the piece by trying to blend in the rational arguments against the ethics of the report with reactions of opposing fans akin to: "yeah scUM is taking the DickRod now!" He wrote back today, towing what was obviously a company line. I won't cite it in full here, as he wrote it with private intentions, but he told me he disagreed with my view on the report, followed by "of course" (why this should be taken for granted, I don't know). He also suggested that reporting the "truth" is not unprofessional but rather essential. Hmm.

Why does it always look like Drew Sharp is smelling a fart? I agree with Dave, cut off all ties and let that terd that is the free press circle the drain and flush away. Too many poop references?
