In an effort to get our 6 readers more aquainted with who we are and what "sweet emotion" is all about, we put together a blog regarding the things we stand against. I'm a little tardy in following up, but here is one more hopefully helpful opportunity to understand just what is the essence of "sweet emotion." Here are the things we encourage/are "for"/are about.
1) SEC football
2) any reference to Hoosiers
3) Manly Men - like Ted Nugent and Bruce Willis
4) Less public women sports
5) Allen Iverson
6) men who have their lives so intertwined with sports that a loss for
you team means a miserable week at work.
7) anyone who is playing against Notre Dame
8) the elimination of female sideline reporters
9)Dads who play their son up an age group so he will get some real experience.
10) Ronnie Lott – lost a pinky and kept playing in the Super Bowl.
11) Sportscenter commercials
12) the ESPN the magazine commercial “I get all my news from espen the magazine.
13) We strongly believe Rocky IV was the real reason the Cold War ended.
14) Fantasy Sports – if you aren’t good enough to play professionally you can at least live out your dreams through them.
15) People who treat video games like real life.
16) people whose enjoyment of Monday and Tuesday is based on your college teams performance on Sunday
17) Sportscasters who refuse to cover Michele Wie everytime she makes another "attempt" to make a cut. (oh wait, no one refuses).
18) We strongly applaud anyone who refused to see Titanic; especially if you abstained because you refused to contribute to it passing Star Wars as the biggest box office hit. *** give yourself a point if you watched it in the theater but with a mouth full of popcorn chuckled as Leo held on at the end.
19) guys who pass the ball to Allen Iverson
20) Brett Farve (not b/c we think he's a great QB, but
b/c he'd play even if his leg fell off)j
21) guys who "walk it off" - we've covered this before and make reference to it sporatically. If you are injured in a game but walk it off and come back---three cheers
22) John Rocker for his taunting of NY
23) Touchdown celebrations - Joe Horn's cell phone antics anyone
24) Hootie Johnson and Augusta National
25) the guy who drove out to The Masters Womans protest just to hold up the sign that said "Iron My Shirt."
26) Alex's friend who ditched mothers day because he had
tickets to the cubs/phillies series in chicago
27) Former President of Harvard University Lawrence Summers (fired for suggesting men were inherently better at some sciences).
28) steak and BBQ
29) Golden Coral (any steak buffet for that matter, where quantity is emphasized over quality
30) We strongly back the proposal of moving Valentine's day to February 29th, therefore only celebrating it once every 4 years.
31) people who refuse to watch TV (and/or) change the channel without the remote. You know the feeling, you sit there and watch "Back to the Future" on TBS for the 90th time because you can't find the remote
32) Snickering at comments like I heard yesterday regarding Michelle Wie "She had a hard time today. While men were able to use short irons on their approach shots, she was having to make up for her shorter drives with long irons."
33) If you play golf, never playing it safe.
34) Trying to get Lifetime and HGTV removed from the standard cable package
A couple of quotes to end things:-On the one hand, we'll never experience childbirth. On the other hand, we can open all our own jars. ~
Bruce Willis, on the difference between men and women
-All men are Mortal. Socrates was mortal. Therefore, all men are Socrates
– Woody Allen-Men are clinging to football on a level we aren't even aware of. For centuries, we ruled everything, and now, in the last ten minutes, there are all these incursions by women. It's our Alamo.
Hope this helps a little bit and provided a few laughs for you. Thanks to all our readers and contributors.
