Tiger & Kovy Conspiracy Theories; Twilight, and Other Things That Should Extinct Themselves.
I recently formed a thought about Tiger Woods that even I believed to be rather absurd at first; but upon further review, began to doubt the craziness and saw some logic. As we all know, Tiger was, undisputedly, the best golfer on the planet. He got caught cheating on his wife, took a “break” from golf, only to come back, and absolutely suck. His divorce is finalized, and all of a sudden, he starts playing well again. Coincidence? Is it possible that upon becoming fully aware that he was going to lose every dollar he was worth in a divorce settlement, that Tiger may have “took a dive” and purposely tanked his golf game along with his net worth in hopes of having less cash available for Elin to (deservingly) fleece out of every pocket he owns?
Now that the NHL has rejected the terms of Ilya Kovalchuk’s absurd contract with the New Jersey Devils a second time, and it has been found to be invalid by a third party as well, does anyone else wish that Ilya would just sign a reasonable contract, or just ship himself off to the KHL already? If he wants to go play at home (not that I’ve heard he actually does) can we just let him go and get paid for 150 years in sacks of money with dollar signs on them by the mob bosses that run that league, complete with death threats upon lack of success? Why do we all have to sit through an entire summer’s length of discussion on where this over hyped/paid/acting and underachieving player is going to end up? If he had a few Cups under his belt, I could see this conversation being more relevant, but what’s Kovy done for anyone latel…errmm…. ever??
ARE ALL THE TEENY BOPPERS OVER THE STUPID TWILIGHT VAMPIRE CRAP YET??? If not, please pick up the pace. When I saw the ads for the new movie, “Vampires Suck”, I immediately thought to myself, “Finally! A movie that portrays every exact feeling I have about this Twilight travesty phenomenon.” Unfortunately for the filmmakers, I’m not going to see it either. But, nice goin’ fellas, thanks for doing that for me.
I gave the original Twilight movie an honest shake at impressing me; my wife and I watched it at the height of its popularity without any foreknowledge of the plot besides that there were vampires in it. Vampires were cool, so it wasn’t a big stretch, until… the freaking movie started. From start to finish, it was just such a pile of garbage. 2 full hours of human existence that will never be returned to me with the refund discount coupons I deserve. Poor writing, acting, lighting…. and just soooo incredibly cheesy. I didn’t think it would be possible to think of vampires in less of a bad-ass light (keeping company with the Wolfman and Frankenstein bumps you up there), but they found a way to take ‘em down plenty of pegs. The writers of the books/movies should do themselves a favor and buy all the garlic, stakes, and sunlight detergent out of the stores within a 1000 mile radius of their residences before an angry pitchfork wielding mob taps on their front door [too much? Maybe you’re right. Ok, they don’t have to perish, just stop writing more books/movies, and apologize to us all for ruining vampires. Now.].
Does it amaze anyone else out there that the Quail continues to survive extinction? Have you ever seen a more suicidal bird? One that purposely runs, not flies mind you, yes RUNS in front of your car at the last second, often with an entire family in tow? Do maybe even the Quails realize how stupid they look with those dangling fish-bobbers bouncing around their heads, and try to put an end to their own species? Are they perhaps the most ferocious gamblers of the animal kingdom; proposing and attempting death-defying stunts while others wait in the bushes while a bookie quail takes their bets? Either way, I applaud them for making it this far, but methinks that Quails will be last-second street-crossing themselves the way of the Dodo before much longer.
Do you think the makers of Ed Hardy, Affliction, Tap-Out, and Christian Audiger even care that their brands are openly mocked by the public, and are only purchased and worn by the biggest (for lack of a more fitting term) douche-bags in any given city? Or do you think they just sleep comfortably in their exorbitantly expensive homes paid for by every skull-clad shirt they’ve sold? Yeah, I think the latter as well.
