Whenever you need a laugh, you can always count on those kooky, publicly funded balls of laughs at NPR.

Oh, but first, if you haven’t seen it, watch the video of the middle school football team’s trick play so it all makes sense:

Now the outrage:

The play is legal, and just about everybody who has seen it gets a real hoot out of it. In one online poll, 92.1 percent of those who voted said the play was genius.

Well, it isn’t funny, and it isn’t right.
But the Driscoll team didn’t act instinctively to try to put one over on a ref. The middle schoolers didn’t even come up with the ruse. Their coach dreamed up the play, and even participated in it, hollering from the sideline. The referees weren’t victimized. In fact, they had to play along.

No, it was only the other team’s kids who were embarrassed and belittled by a children’s coach being a wise guy, a bully of sorts. It wasn’t genius at all; rather, it was a form of child abuse. Sure, it was legal, but it wasn’t fair.

Laugh at kids being outslicked by a grown-up, and you’re cruel. That isn’t sport.

Laughing at grown-up liberals, now there’s a sport!

Somebody please tell this guy the game ended in an automatic, “no hurt feelings” mandated tie so he’ll calm down! I will confess to being somewhat surprised he didn’t blame Bush for the mean trick play.

Aren’t most plays are designed to fool the other team? Otherwise there would be no need for a huddle — or maybe the author thinks all the players do in there is bitch about global warming and Gitmo.

    You should have put a 'Frank DeFord' warning on that link; if'd known he wrote the idiocy in question I would have saved dozens of our precious, vanishing electrons by not checking out who had written such blather.

    "Sure, it was legal, but it wasn't fair"

    Oh… you mean like ObamaCare!? ( Isn't that basically how Dem's "passed" it? ) We all thought it was a "dead ball" and you @$$clowns picked it up and RAN WITH IT!

    This is too much. Defund NPR NOW! While we're 'at' it, how much of a "charitable person" can you really 'be' when your $10 Annual Donation to NPR is already BACKED by half-a-bil in taxpayer funds!? ( Like what, you were fearful without yer' 10-banger they'd be taken off the air? ) Please. We know the real reason you won't be found inside a church. 10% ( well… we give 4% ) would cut into your and Sheriff Joe's waitress sandwich/weed money.

    "Sure, it was legal, but it wasn't fair"

    Use the same argument to oppose abortion and I'm guessing the author would call that the worst logic ever.

    That "fair for me,but not for thee !" sorta thing !

  5. SignPainterGuy on November 18th, 2010 8:17 pm

    The play was brilliant and good for a national snicker ! A good lessen in "PAY ATTENTION !"

    Whatever "abuse" is involved, it is self-imposed by each and every individual who signs up to play the game !

    As little as six months ago, conservatives would have been forced to get on their hind legs and swirl windmill punches to fend off "an assualt on logic" like that. Now they're bouncing off our windshield like so many bugs.

    The piece struck me as a feeble attempt to rekindle that 'spark' in an affair w/ insanity where everything says Lovin' You Crazy! ( and back AT you! circa 2008 ) Not happening. I can't even give that points for effort.

    Frankie boy has had his nose stuck up Bryant Gumbel's ass so long that he is now claiming child abuse over a junior high football play???? HAAAAAAAAAHAAAAA! Me thinks the fumes from Gumbel's arse has finally caused Frank to finally succumb completely to mental derangement or the complete sissyfication of all things sports.

    Whatever you do, don't miss Joyanna Adams ( linked lower left ) children's book:

    "My First Cavity Search" ( Helping your child understand why he might pose a threat to national security ) Ages 6 and up. God it's a scream!

    The look on the poor kid's face is priceless, and the TSA guys seem just a little 'too' eager? Thanks Joyanna.

    That was a TEXAS school that pulled that off (unfortunately, against another TEXAS school), but still, sneaky shit like that makes me damned proud to reside in the Republic of the Big T. DON'T MESS WITH TEXAS!!

    Did I over-do it a little?

  10. OK_Loyalist on November 19th, 2010 1:52 am

    I bet the opposing teams coach was like Roman Moroney around 1:30 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6GVCgTFw2Qk

    Of course, ALL competition is child abuse, right libs

    Give em their pill and sit down for some finger-painting instead,

    Not in the slightest ( after all that is their anti-litter campaign isn't it? )

    OT but I'd be curious to know, you're on TriCare, right? I recall you're USA ( ret. ) Why do I get the sinking feeling "blackcard holders" won't have the pol. pull to get their Waiver-Mania/Get Out Of ObamaCare Free Card? Or am I getting ahead of myself?
