UT Black Jerseys

The titans are 0-6 but finally the owner forced jeff fisher to start vince young so we will see if vince can save the season again like he did his rookie year. Fisher waited until thursday to announce vince the starter so instead of 2 weeks for vince to get ready he has 2 days as the official starter so he is being set up to fail so fisher can try to say." I told you so." Ill be there probably in the rain sunday so Go Titans!!!

The Tennessee Vols are wearing their black jerseys tonight and they look really good. I may actually buy one they look so good. Lane Kiffin was name dropped in a Lil Wayne mixtape song and the people of this state love football so much they put the lil wayne name drop in the paper. They said it may help Kiffin with recruiting and Kiffin already thanked lil wayne. The titans had some special red jerseys years ago but they never wore them so it would be nice to see them rock something new anything but those cursed oiler jerseys they keep throwing back to. Kiffins wife was the topic of an internet lie that said she would pose in a sports illustrated swimsuit issue. She denied it but alot of guys around the country were hoping it was true. As soon as their plane touched down for his press conference this year Kiffins wife was one of the top ten hottest women in the state.

I was in the Dollar General store today balling out of control like I always do,rofl, and I noticed a Tennessee Lottery machine. The lotteries across the world cry foul whenever people say they target the poor but come on how else can you explain it in a Dollar store? I bet there are no lotto machines in upscale stores with valet parking and with fresh rose petals on your way to the dressing room. I dont see it as wrong or illegal it may be morally or ethically wrong but I just want them to admit they do it. Poor people wont stop playing if they admit it just like the rich wont stop playing out of guilt of not really needing the money.

59-0???/ Limbaugh facts

The titans got beat historically on sunday. 59-0 is the worst beating of any team in nfl history since 1976. Bud Adams was in houston swimming in his money vault like Scrooge McDuck so he didnt care. Kerry Collins had negative seven passing yards on Sunday but Fisher is still going to start him. Im looking for any excuse to not go to the rest of the home games until Vince Young starts or Jeff Fisher gets fired. This guy has won 2 playoff games since losing the superbowl and no playoff games won since 2003.

This team is on a rocket path to becoming the LA Titans in a few years because when the fans stop selling out games and the NFL forces blackouts Bud Adams or if he is dead his family will sell off the team to an owner who will keep them in nashville or the team will move to LA or whatever city wants a team. Houston lost the Oilers/Titans and the NFL gave them another team so the only hope here would be the NFL gives nashville another team. The worst thing about Tuesday is instead of showing Shark Tank on ABC locally they show Jeff Fisher Live. The last thing I want to watch after a Titans loss is Jeff Fisher acting cocky like he can do no wrong. Right now I see the offensive and defensive coordinators are on here so maybe Jeff ducked out like he did sunday after the game when he dodged the radio interview. They are on here laughing and joking around I want to throw the tv out the window."The game kept snowballing", really you are joking around after a big loss like this. You dont care,the other coaches dont care,the owner doesnt care and the players know it so they dont care anymore. Fisher showed up and danced around the softball questions.

The Florida Powerball was won by a rich doctor. They showed his 3 million dollar mansion in a gated community. He has been married for 3 years so he wont be smiling if the trophy wife leaves with half his money and the first wife goes to court to get more alimony. He didnt need the 232 million dollars but he bought a ticket like the rest of us so congratulations to him. Of course the other millions of people who pray for a lottery win because they are unemployed or barely making it check to check in this economy may have deserved it much more and also they may now become atheists over this but hey he bought his ticket and the island he buys to store his wifes shoes is his business you know. Some lottery players were upset with a child molestor in michigan who won the lottery and his victim was encouraged to take him to court to get some of the money but legally he was a free man and had paid his debt to society. So all lottery stories are going to be heartwarming Disney tales folks.

Oreilly and Limbaugh said they couldnt find any racist comments or racially insensitive comments so Media Matters was nice enough to find 28 for them and I put them below:

"Media Matters has documented at least 28 examples of Limbaugh making racially charged remarks
Limbaugh has an extensive history of making racially charged remarks about minorities. Media Matters has documented numerous examples of Limbaugh's racially charged and insensitive remarks about minorities, including his comment that "in Obama's America, the white kids now get beat up with the black kids cheering" [The Rush Limbaugh Show, 9/15/09] and that "Obama's entire economic program is reparations" [The Rush Limbaugh Show, 6/22/09]. Examples include:

•"We are being told that we have to hope [Obama] succeeds, that we have to bend over, grab the ankles ... because his father was black."
•"I do believe" Obama is an "angry black guy."
•"[I]n Obama's America, the white kids now get beat up with the black kids cheering."
•"Obama's entire economic program is reparations."
•Obama is "more African in his roots than he is American" and is "behaving like an African colonial despot."
•Obama is "Halfrican-American."
•"Obama has disowned his white half ... he's decided he's got to go all in on the black side."
•Sotomayor "a reverse racist" appointed by Obama, "the greatest living example of a reverse racist."
•Obama "wants us to have the same health care and plan that he had in Kenya" and "wants to be the black FDR."
•Latching onto LA Times op-ed, Limbaugh sings "Barack, The Magic Negro."
•"God does not have a birth certificate. Neither does Obama"; Obama "has yet to prove he's a citizen."
•Limbaugh on Gates controversy: "Here you have a black president trying to destroy a white policeman."
•Limbaugh suggests Obama would not have acted on Somali pirates if he'd known they were "actually young, black Muslim teenagers."
•Limbaugh suggests Democrats, media believe "you can't criticize the little black man-child."
•"The government's been taking care of [young blacks] their whole lives."
•"The days of [minorities] not having any power are over, and they are angry."
•"[M]inorities never do anything for which they have to apologize."
•Limbaugh: "The media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well."
•Limbaugh says "NFL all too often looks like a game between the Bloods and the Crips."
•Limbaugh declares basketball "the favorite sport of gangs."
•Limbaugh invented "racial component" to Hackett's decision to withdraw from Ohio primary race.
•Limbaugh on Survivor series: "African-American tribe" worst swimmers, Hispanics "will do things other people won't do."
•Limbaugh suggested Colin Powell only supported Obama because of race.
•Limbaugh: Gates is an "angry racist."
•Limbaugh called illegal immigrants an "invasive species."
•Limbaugh repeatedly calls Native Americans "Injuns."
•Limbaugh says Democrats' interest in Darfur is securing black "voting bloc."
•Limbaugh says that if "feminazis" had remembered to oppose "affirmative action for black guys ... they wouldn't face the situation they face today."

Limbaugh dumped

Limbaugh was dumped from his group who put in a bid to buy the Rams. Rush turned it around and said he is a victim and this was an order from the White House. That makes no sense when Goodell is so conservative along with his wife and most of the owners in the league. Rush Limbaugh knows what to say to get press to cover him and of course im talking about him too.

Wisconsin won the powerball last night so its back down to 20 million but that megamillions is still 200 million for friday night. A woman in Ohio with a mental illness started a riot in Burlington Coat Factory when she said she would pay for any persons items under $500 because she just won the lottery and didnt want the money. She pulled up in a limo so that had people fooled but the limo driver took her to the bank and found out she was lying so he called the cops. People ran out of the store with stolen goods after the hoax was revealed. After such a great lottery story yesterday about the powerball and megamillions selling in the same state in 2010 and probably the biggest one I have heard since tennessee getting the lottery. Its unfortunate to hear a story like this but its more about mental illness and the need to get treatment to those in need than it is a lottery story.

Powerball and Megamillions in same states???

(The story below from LotteryPost is big news because it would mean no more long drives for tickets. I mention the possibility in some states of it happening but now it could happen next year in any lottery state even here in Tennessee. The megamillions rolled over to 200 million so get your tickets before friday night and Powerball is 30 million for tonights drawing)

"They are the two "marquee games" in American lotteries: Mega Millions and Powerball. Each lottery state currently has one, but not the other. However, the Mega Millions consortium and Multi-State Lottery Association (MUSL) have reached an agreement in principle to cross-sell Mega Millions and Powerball in all U.S. lottery jurisdictions.

The agreement means that lotteries from across the United States, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, will be able to choose to offer their lottery players both jackpot games via their respective retailers.

States that currently sell Powerball and other lottery products will have the opportunity to begin offering Mega Millions tickets to their players via authorized lottery retailers. As a result of this agreement, Mega Millions states will then be able to offer the Powerball game to complement their existing game mix. No firm date has been set for implementation, although it is hoped that it could be in early 2010. It is also hoped that this could be the beginning of several joint initiatives.

"Lottery Post members have been waiting for this day to come for years," said Todd Northrop of Lottery Post, the Internet's largest community of lottery players.

"This new agreement will not only generate more player excitement, but should increase sales of both games, as players will have access to a mega-jackpot game four days per week, instead of just two."

"For states with computerized drawings, the addition of another game with real ball drawings should also help bring more players back to the ticket counter," Northrop added.

Mega Millions is currently played in 12 states, with a combined population of roughly 160 million. Powerball is currently available from 33 lotteries (31 states plus the District of Columbia and Virgin Islands) with a combined population of roughly 125 million.

At first, both could in effect become national lotteries, if all or nearly all of the existing jurisdictions — including the District of Columbia and the Virgin Islands — elect to participate. More than 285 million people live in areas with these lotteries.

But an even bigger game is in the works as well.

"If we develop a national game, it will probably be at a different price point," said Tom Shaheen, president of the Powerball group. "It might be $2. It might be $5. It will be a single game, but we haven't worked out all the details of that yet. The other two games, I believe, would remain intact."

Such a super lottery could happen by next fall, said Chuck Strutt, the Powerball group's executive director.

The hope is to raise more money for state treasuries.

In March, New Jersey Gov. Corzine's proposed budget suggested adding Powerball as a way to raise $10 million more a year for coffers of New Jersey, one of the 12 Mega Millions states. Other states, including Massachusetts, had similar budget assumptions.

One reason revenues should rise is that as jackpots soar, so do ticket sales.

When Mega Millions rolled over last night, its jackpot grew by $30 million, because it was already huge. As a result Friday's jackpot will be $200 million.

(Last night's numbers: 17, 31, 34, 45 and 51, with a Mega Ball of 24. Ten tickets won $250,000.)

Powerball, on the other hand, grew by "only" $5 million on Saturday night, because its jackpot was relatively low. Tonight's annuity jackpot is $30 million.

Increased sales should also mean giant jackpots would rise much faster — and get hit much sooner — perhaps heightening the frenzy.

Small jackpots, on the other hand, might grow more slowly as they wait for the higher payout to reboot.

Such consequences might spur modifications to either or both games, as well as lead to new games.
Although states do not have to opt in, they'll probably be under great pressure to do so, for fearing of losing revenue.
One impetus for the merger came from observations that many people crossed state lines to chase giant jackpots.
If New Jersey, New York and Maryland offered both games and Pennsylvania didn't, Pennsylvania's lottery revenues might fall, as people from neighboring states buy Powerball tickets at home."

0-5 is a joke/Goodell wants Limbaugh

The titans are 0-5 and I had to watch this blowout in person sunday night. Fisher put Vince Young in once the game was basically over and he put Lendale White in with him instead of Chris Johnson. Titans fans want to see Vince Young and Chris Johnson in the same backfield with their speed not the same lineup from 2008.

Goodell came out to say owners shouldnt say anything negative about Limbaugh. Goodells wife works as an anchor/reporter for Foxnews and Limbaugh is a god to them so the writing is on the wall that this deal will get close to going through. The owners are rich and some even Billionaires so most people with that amount of money are republicans because they believe in helping the rich get richer and stay rich. The San Diego Chargers owner and team have donated more money to the republican party than any other NFL team. Sharpton popped up in this now so I dont know if that will motivate people to support Limbaugh or go against him. Sharpton was last seen hosting WWE Monday Night Raw as the fans decided to boo him. I dont know how this will turnout but it is an interesting story.

You lucky people in Massachusetts,Michigan,Texas and Maryland will be getting Powerball to go with your Megamillions jackpots next year. It would be nice if Tennessee had both multi state games so I could save gas instead of driving to georgia or illinois for tickets when the megamillions is high. Right now powerball is 30 million and megamillions is 170 million.

Limbaugh hits roadblock

A few NFL players are saying they wouldnt want to play for Rush Limbaugh if he buys the Rams. This is big news because Tiger Woods who never stands up for anything has made a billion dollars(before taxes) over the course of his career. That kind of news plus Michael Jordan before him never taking a stand makes alot of athletes want to stay as marketable as possible. By "marketable" that usually means doing backflips,tap dancing and smiling more than Cuba Gooding Jr during an Oscar speech and in every movie he made since Boyz N the Hood.

A player cant help it if he is drafted by a Limbaugh owned team but they can avoid going there as free agents and if drafted they can leave when the contract is up. I watched PTI and Wilbon took the stand against Rush owning a team. Wilbon pointed out that people keep talking about the McNabb comments only but Rush makes offensive comments against blacks everyday especially the current president. Playing the "Barack The Magic Negro"song,"The NFL is like Crips and Bloods fighting without weapons", are just a few of his insulting comments. Rush also told a black caller to take the "bone" out of his nose.

Kornheiser trotted out the "if you meet him in person he is so charming" lame excuse but Wilbon stood his ground and shocked me. Kornheiser admitted he was impressed to see athletes coming out swinging on real issue like Jim Brown and Ali used to. In the 80's and 90's the pro players just wanted to shoe deal and commercial so they didnt want to ruffle any feathers by having an opinion. Jordan really influenced Tiger Woods because Jordan famously said "Why should I care about Dr. King I never met the man?" and he also said "Republicans buy shoes too." Which of course is true all political parties buy shoes but "no comment" makes you sound like less of a jackass.

You are not ready for a game show

I was flipping between Court tv and Bernie Mac and I caught a glimpse of something shocking on Family Feud.

Host: "Name a city famous for music?"
Contestant whose race will remain anonymous:"Florida!!!"
Host:"I dont know if Florida is famous for music or if it is a city now but show me Florida"
Incorrect Buzzer:"Buzz,Hell no,Buzz"

Honestly if they put up "DUMBASS" in big red letters on the screen I wouldnt have minded at all.
Let me breakdown the comedy of the "Fail" and what he meant which even im ashamed to admit I know. Im assuming he meant to say Miami. Even if he meant Miami I think he meant Uncle Luke,2 Live Crew,Trick Daddy and Trina type music. This isnt BET man Family Feud isnt thinking that way. Even if he was thinking of the latin music down there the islands of origin would get more credit for the music than a city in Florida. The only reason this is so funny and you have to hunt it down on youtube(when someone smarter than me puts it up) is because the host of the Family Feud is that J Peterman guy from seinfeld. The look on his face when he said that line should win him 3 emmy's.

You dont have to be a genius to go on a game show but make sure before you go that you consider your audience and the best answers to win. You also dont have to be a genius to play the lottery and that has been proven by the 97% of people who win millions and are broke 3 years later. The megamillions is 145 million and the powerball is down to 25 million.

The jets traded for Braylon Edwards. So the 3-1 NY Jets can trade after only one loss but the Titans are sticking with what they have after opening up 0-4? Thanks for nothing Jeff Fisher(I reserve the right to change my opinion if a miracle happens and they make the playoffs and win).

Anti Semitism>>>Racism?

I was watching PTI today and Tony Kornheiser was talking about how Rush Limbaugh isnt a bad guy and should be able to buy the St Louis Rams. He said it wasnt a big deal what Limbaugh said about Donovan McNabb that eventually got Rush fired from ESPN. Of course Mike Wilbon smiled and agreed with him but Mike is so mad when a young black athlete skips college to go pro and become a millionaire(has nothing to do with this topic but just shows you what a horses ass and sellout wilbon is). Tony and Wilbon dont think racism exists anymore because he also defended Bruce Pearl a few weeks ago when Pearl made a joke about a member of team being in the KKK or related to people in the KKK. I didnt think it was funny or cute because I live in Tennessee(same state Pearl was talking about) and I dont think there is anything funny about lynchings and cross burnings and other murders the KKK have admitted to and promise the world they will do more of.

Kornheiser said Pearl is welcome on his show for life and its just a coach with "personality". I remember a group who had ties to Nazis 70 years ago tried to buy the rights to Giants stadium recently and Kornheiser talked about that for 2 weeks and eventually the deal fell through because Jews in NYC shut it down. I really want to win the 100 words on Deadspin so I can blast Kornheiser and ESPN for being so relaxed on racism against blacks but anything they think is anti semitism they are allover that. Pearl is jewish just like Kornheiser and so is the heavyset and infamous Dana Jacobson who was given a pass and kept her job for saying "F-Jesus" and other offensive things to Christians(ESPN DOESNT CARE ABOUT CHRISTIAN PEOPLE). I think both racims and anti semitism are still alive but if you work for ESPN unless it offends you directly then you think everyone else is just too sensitive. Bobby Bowden was asked a question by a female reporter and he said,"Just like a woman" so of course ALL the women at ESPN now are calling him an old sexist. When you as an ESPN employee get offended thats all that matters at ESPN so this network keeps getting more powerful and more evil. So to wrap this up ESPN thinks racism is dead and black men are too sensitive and need to get a sense of humor but sexism and anti semitism is alive and well,gtfoh. All 3 still exist in some form but ESPN only wants them to work to their benefits.

UPDATE: All that crap ESPN said about not covering Erin Andrews or Ben Roethlisberger because of the legal case has been proven wrong again because Miguel Cabrera had a wild weekend with no charges filed and ESPN covered it. Also Braylon Edwards had an incident that he allegedly punched Lebron James friend with no charges filed but ESPN didnt mind reporting both of these rumors the next day like facts but when they had the EA and Ben cases they ignored them for a long time to protect the possibility her tapes implicated ESPN insiders and Ben was the first guest on Shaq's show on ABC(under the disney umbrella with ESPN). ESPN has so many conflicts of interest and you cant trust anything they say because they will omit whatever will cost them money or bad press. The internet is the only place sports fans can locate the truth because ESPN wont give it to us.

The titans havent won a playoff game since 2003 so Fisher needs to do something soon. I wondered how the titans would react after losing the first game on offense,second game on defense and third game on special teams. They lost this game by all 3 phases of the game failing. The jags stomped the titans out. Garrard threw for almost 400 yards and 3 touchdowns. The next two games are against peyton manning and tom brady. The colts game is a code blue on sunday night and that means all of us loyal home fans wear light blue and its the NBC sunday night game so the titans have to play well since the entire nation will be watching and the stands will look like an ocean. Fisher finally made the local media mad enough to criticize him. He pulled the old"I already answered your question" card. So the media hates that from terrell owens and Fisher did it too.
