SS: Brady sucks- J E T S Jets Jets Jets!! Sorry I have to disown you now- it’s been nice knowing you for the past 20 years. Your family is still welcome in my home, unless of course they too like Brady.
ZF: Scott prefers overrated teams. You’ll have to excuse him. He’s from Jersey and just doesn’t know any better.

MP4B = “Millionaires Playing For Billionaires”
And we should care, why? Don’t get me wrong I’ll watch. But I also stare at traffic accidents, train wrecks, my legal mentor Judge Judy, and can be disgusted by Jerry Springer as the tv gets surfed thru channels.
But to quote the pre-eminent Social Philosopher of our day, Ms. Betty White, watching the NFL with any sense of attachment, concern about the outcome, amusement at the childish antics, or even empathy for the players, is “a colossal <synonym for the act of procreation> waste of time”!
Amusement from a day of working in the mines, distraction form life’s vicissitudes, or even a dalliance on a whimsy … fine.
Just remember that these bozos, who can’t even act human, are making more money that you’ll EVER make, to entertain the mob. (That’s you and, at times, me.) At least, Vana White has the class and the wisdom to acknowledge that she was lucky to get the easiest job in the world and feels an obligation to do “charities” when they ask.
So, now when anyone “talks sports”, you’ll silently think “MP4B”. But don’t say anything. Lest you be thought of as a crotchety fat old white guy injineer who can take the fun out of anything.
“Son, we live in a world that has walls, … …. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don’t want the truth because deep down in places you don’t talk about at parties, you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall.” Colonel Jessep in A Few Good Men played by Jack Nicholson
On the “wall” protecting you from self-delusion and the Gooferment in my tin foil hat and with my “urban yute discouragement devices”.
Sigh, it’s gonna be a long day with little respite.
p.s., You should thank your lucky stars for new jersey; look at all the corrupt politicians we absorb. Next to chicago, we’re probably number 2 in that. But we’re trying harder. If we didn’t absorb them, they might infect the Bible Belt. Argh! I gotta get to NH for the Third American Revolution.
p.p.s, In case you were wondering, the Second was the War of Norther Aggression.
Facebook too is a …!
