Well, faithful readers...
Yeah, yeah, I know I'm supposed to be working. That hasn't happened since an energy-sucking meeting at 9 this morning. I came back to my desk, and my trusty RSS Feed had all kinds of goodies in it, so of course I had to catch up with The 10 Spot.
And Extra Mustard.
And Lion in Oil.
And With Leather.
RSS Feeds are a bad thing when I am not feeling productive.
Anyway...while "working", I came across this story on SI.com about our favorite miscreant Pacman Jones.
Will someone please get this man a hobby that doesn't involve strippers, wrestlers, gangsters, or rappers?? PLEASE.
I am not above begging.
Oh, and while you are at it, Someone, can you remind him that he's supposed to be behaving himself so he could have a remote chance at getting back to what he does best? You know...playing FOOTBALL.
I am so tired of hearing about Pacman Jones, and I was really trying to avoid giving him any more space in this blog, but his recent pathetic attempts to fill his downtime have brought out my nuturing instincts.
I didn't think it was possible, but I feel kinda sorry for the kid. I mean, he's got a whole family to support, you know. And after all, he's trying to stay out of trouble by filling his time. He went out and got that lucrative gig with TNA and those mean guys at Titans HQ wouldn't let him play/fight/act/whatever. **Insert sarcastic sound effect here**
Okay, I must go on a slight tangent here. Was I the only one who saw a delicious irony in Pacman "Makin' It Rain" Jones signing with a league called TNA? As is T and A? Don't make me spell it out for you guys.
Anyway, I'd like to suggest some other hobbies that will fill Pacman's time and keep him out of the press, thus leaving valuable airtime/page space for sports news I actually care about (you know, like who thought it would be a good idea to teach Rex Grossman to scramble).
- Knitting--Pacman could knit doggie sweaters (Pit Bull size), and donate them to the Virginia Animal Control unit currently caring for the dogs confiscated from Mike Vick. He'd be helping to keep the doggies warm during the upcoming winter and warming the hearts of dog lovers across the nation.
- Scrapbooking--Pacman could document the season for the Titans, making sure to make enough books for the entire team, coaching staff, front office...oh, and don't forget the league office in New York!
- Creative Writing--Pacman could write a book to promote Youth Literacy, denoucing gun violence, "The Man", and incorporating math lessons. Because six really equals two.
Pacman, I hope you take some of this advice to heart.
