The #CamShow

All credit to the Broncos defense. They COMPLETELY took Cam out of the game. The heartbreaking thing for me was after the Bengals narrow loss to the Broncos in the Battle of the Backups, it showed that they could have won that game as well.

But that's not what you want to talk about.

You want to talk about Cam behaving badly!

I'll admit it. He should have sucked it up and faced reporters and given more complete answers and not behaved like Bill Belichick (see what I did there?).

The man got embarrassed in the biggest game of his life. He'll learn from it, work on it, and get better at it. It still doesn't mean you get to spew your racist bullshit about him.

We got a black quarterback so step back!

MVP Cam Newton! Let me say that again, MVP Cam Newton!

I have never wanted to see a blowout in a game that didn't have the Bengals in it.
I want Cam to be the face of the NFL. I want to see his face on ALL the ads the same way we see Peyton now.

I think you can figure out why.

I am old enough to come from a time where it was "just common sense" that blacks couldn't lead the team.

It's hilarious that people argue that this hate has nothing to do with race. He showboats too much?

Really?

Look, no shade to Peyton Manning. In fact, I'll give the Sheriff the last word here about Cam:

He finished by saying of Newton’s Superman celebration and habit of giving the ball to a kid: “I think it’s great, and I think it’s great for football.”

But that's none of my business

Dear Marvin,

You've done a fine job with this team. Really. The Bengals were the league joke for the longest time. Arrests, fines, losing as the standard, etc. etc. You've managed to turn the franchise around. They became division champions, playoff contenders, a team of outstanding athletes and individuals.

Yes, yes–here comes the "but".

Some of your players lost control against the Steelers, and that's on them and you. It speaks volumes that I thought it was over when the fumble happened. The Steelers were backed up on their 10 yard line, the clock was under two minutes, they had to go 60 yards, and I still thought the Bengals would find a way to lose. They got 30 on two 15 yard penalties. That's on you coach. I've never been so disappointed in a team than I was after that game. It looks like you're getting another chance at this. You have a damn good team on your hands. Teach them, drill them, don't let the other team bait you. It's only mental at this point. Show me you're smart enough to get them over the top. Please make me eat my words next time.

Oh yeah and Cincy fans? Stop throwing shit at players. You ain't Philly.

And now a word from the Philadelphia Ballet

A Facebook user recently commented that the Eagles had "played like they were wearing tutus!!!"

Our response:

"With all due respect to the Eagles, let's take a minute to look at what our tutu wearing women have done this month: 

By tomorrow afternoon, the ballerinas that wear tutus at Pennsylvania Ballet will have performed The Nutcracker 27 times in 21 days. Some of those women have performed the Snow scene and the Waltz of the Flowers without an understudy or second cast. No 'second string' to come in and spell them when they needed a break. When they have been sick they have come to the theater, put on make up and costume, smiled and performed. When they have felt an injury in the middle of a show there have been no injury timeouts. They have kept smiling, finished their job, bowed, left the stage, and then dealt with what hurts. Some of these tutu wearers have been tossed into a new position with only a moments notice. That's like a cornerback being told at halftime that they're going to play wide receiver for the second half, but they need to make sure that no one can tell they've never played wide receiver before. They have done all of this with such artistry and grace that audience after audience has clapped and cheered (no Boo Birds at the Academy) and the Philadelphia Inquirer has said this production looks "better than ever".

So no, the Eagles have not played like they were wearing tutus. If they had, Chip Kelly would still be a head coach and we'd all be looking forward to the playoffs."

Happy New Year!

It's a combovermullet

Has Chris Berman's ego gotten so big that the people close to him can't tell him that his hair looks like shit?
