Whitt's End: 2.4.11

Categories: Whitt's End

Whitt's End - reaper.jpg
Whether you've reached the end of your rope or merely the end of your week, welcome to Whitt's End:

*So, what's harder to predict: Weather or sports? Coulda sworn Ron Jackson, Pete Delkus and the boys said there was a 30-percent chance of 1-2 inches of snow on Friday. But I drove home last night from the Terence Newman/Newy Scruggs-hosted Stars 'n Strikes Super Bowl party in a driving snowstorm and woke up this morning in McKinney to a healthy 6 inches of the white stuff piled up on the ledge of the hot tub. "We didn't expect the gulf moisture" is the weatherman company line. And what's this: Another inch or two this morning?

*Congrats to Dirk Nowitzki on making yet another NBA All-Star team. Of course he deserves it, but didn't think he'd make it. There's hope for this cold, cruel world after all.

*As expected, radio row at the Sheraton Hotel has been a hoot this week. The highlight lowlight was when the posse of Jersey Shore's Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino steamrolled the posse of Hall of Famer Jerry Rice. Sometimes it's better to be famous than fantastic. Sad.

*Last night in Boston the Stars and Bruins apparently picked three fights in the first four seconds of the game. Never understood the allure of the hockey fight or - even more confounding - why refs just stand there and watch them.

*And I'm not just saying this because she's local, Nastia Liukin is hotter than Brooklyn Decker. Swear.

*Hot.

*Not.

*Tonight we're off to FIG (Fashion Industry Gallery) downtown for Dallas Super Bash, starring Pamela Anderson. There was a time, right around Baywatch, when she was the hottest  human on the planet.

*Love me some Michael Irvin. I don't believe all his born-again schtick, but the dude is nothing if not energetic and entertaining. Yesterday he told Greggo and I that he wanted three women in his life: 1. A cook. 2. A maid. 3 And a Harry Hines. Funny. And ... true?

*This might not be the best Friday before a Super Bowl, but it's going to be one of the most picturesque. Maybe it's because we don't get treated to it very often, but there's a lot of awesomeness in the pristine powder on a cold, wind-less day. Screw a white Christmas, we've got ourselves a white Super Bowl.

*The AFC and NFC Championship Games and even the pathetic Pro Bowl each set TV viewership ratings. If Sunday's XLV isn't the most-watched event in the history of the NFL I'll be shocked.

*The fact that the Packers moved their practice indoors this week to Highland Park High School must irk SMU head coach June Jones, who for years has wanted a similar facility for his Mustangs. And, let's face it, that's kinda embarrassing. Highland Park football > SMU football?

Sounds like Charles Haley is smarter than I ever gave him credit for.

Corby was brilliant at the Blackeyed Peas press conference. Genius bit he did with Fergie. Another example of how Rage and The Fail can't do what they do.

RW's top ten moments of SB:#10: Made sweet love to by Weeman, and loved how he held me in his strong arms.

Y'all come up with the rest of the top ten..I got the ball rolling.

Silva is the finest fighter in the world, he is to fighting as RW is to sucking at sports talk/writing

The last fight of the night should be a barnburner! Don't see how you can attack Silvia properly though..Mongoose style taiquaendojudo I guess.

Mixed reports that the Rangers and Rockies are in serious trade talks about Michael Young. Some say it could happen Monday, some say sooner, others say it won't happen at all. I'd eagerly await an actual story about it Monday, but that would interrupt a full day's worth of Top 10 Super Bowl observations, Top 10 Hottest Chicks in Super Bowl Commercials, and Top 10 Excuses to Brag About How FIGJAM Richie Is.

There's one news report about that. If RW were to mention it in a post, you'd write, "Way to go douche! Reprinting old news."

You, sir, are an effing beating.

Hold on, the Steelers have been "focused and no nonsense"??? Wasn't it Ward and a gaggle of Pitt OL at strip club first night in town? And hasn't there been multiple stories of Steelers partying all week, and even a question to Tomlin about if a curfew is being enforced? I'm foncused on RW's take there. Although, I don't think that stuff really matters, as long as it's not Sat night, best team will win anyway.

Reason #17 why RW works for the spare Observer and even sparer Fail: his grammar sucks worse than my five-year-old's: "[Irvin] told Greggo and I . . ." DUDE . . . SERIOUSLY. And don't even blame this on your editors. I think all those hot tub fumes have rendered you short and stupid. I think the Musers based their character "Chris Chris" after RW.

"And, speaking of Romo and celebrity quarterbacks, how lambasted would the Cowboy be if he pulled a Roethlisberger during Super Bowl week?"

You mean to ask how lambasted would Tony Romo be if this week he were to force a woman to have sex with him in a bathroom while his bodyguards made sure that no one would interupt... Quite lambasted... Quite lambasted indeed. I'm thinking Haley went too easy on you... If you were going around asking Cowboys questions like that back in the 90's, I'm guessing the problem wasn't with them.

Also, are these "focused" and "no nonsense" Steelers that you're predicting victory for on Sunday the same ones that we hear about visiting another shake joint every night ?

"Last night in Boston the Stars and Bruins apparently picked three fights in the first four seconds of the game. Never understood the allure of the hockey fight "-RW.

That's because it's man thing....it goes back thousands of generations. Growing up watching the Big Bad B's, you appreciate the REAL hockey, not the watered down crap we have here. REAL ROCKEY. Eddie Shore hockey. Most of you who picked up the game in the last 10 years or so will never understand the subtle nuances of this sport. Ya'll should focus on ranchin' and ropin'.

need a lesson? wiki these fine players of yore:

For years? He's only been here since '08, and they sucked! Crappy teams don't get indoor practice facilities. TCU has one.

Richie woke up with a healthy six inches of white stuff this morning...That unintentional gay innuendo goes on the board.

Richie, you forgot to mention UFC 126 is Saturday. You're not missing it, are you?

And we know why the Aaron-Erin story isn't a big deal. ESPN is about as accepting of criticism as Robert Mugabe.

Who makes an announcement at 4 p.m.? So cool it's buried at an hour 8 people are listening instead of the 14 later on. Please tell me you're announcing Sybil is off that stupid NASCAR weekend show. I've stumbled across it before, and just when I thought she couldn't bring any less to radio, there she was lowering the bar more...

Ironic one of our local FIGJAMs will be at FIG tonight. Richie Whitt, a local media Kardashian--can't spot the talent but won't shut up and won't go away.

Of course Dirk made it. Question is why did Duncan?

Mavs have won 6 in a row but haven't played well much during the streak. Rather curious, and I wonder if Cubes has any moves in mind. Still waiting for the Iggy "given." A solid road win against Boston tonight will do wonders.

I like Haley more now. And he was a good player. If Lawrence Taylor could make and now stay in the Hall, and OJ is still in, and Ray Lewis likely will, I don't care that Haley was a meanie to you.

I know here in Mavsville noone watches Spurs games, understandably so. It's hard for me to trudge through the lovefest that Followill and Ortegal have every Mavs game, I can tolerate it on TNT until Barkley opens his mouth. When the Spurs need a bucket or to break another team's run, they go to Duncan. For the last 6 years the Spurs have had a different leading scorer, I think it goes something like duncan, parker, ginobili, duncan, parker, ginobili. If he wanted to, he can score. It's easy to see with his scoring down how their scoring has gone up. They've gone to a running game, his numbers aren't going to be as high and his minutes are way down. It makes me chuckle to hear Mavs fans complain about Duncan making the team instead of Chandler. When those guys go one on one, Duncan can do whatever he wants. One trick alley oop ponies like Chandler just aren't as all starsy as you think they are. Once again, hard to have a baseline if you never watch a team play. You're closer to the Mavs, if you watched every Spurs game you'd be fine with it. The problem Spurs fans have is the fact that Parker isn't an all star. As he goes, this team goes. He can do whatever he wants, well, except pass. His assist levels are never going to be as high as other pg's.

Even as a Spurs fan I agree with you 100%. I have no idea how Duncan made it in. We're just furthering the stereotype that all star games are jokes.

- You don't see weathermen brag when they're right, like you do. So shut up about it. All you do is fucking brag, man. "On my way home from a party..", "My hot tub has snow on it..". God, you're a pathetic little midget.

- A lot like NHL refs just standing and watching, I don't understand why the Observer or CBS radio stands by and watches you fail more and more each day without putting you out of your misery.

- You bitch about the weatherman being wrong, then you say how cool it is to have a white Super Bowl?

- Surprised you're not ripping Tony Romo for doing the thing with Starter, ya know, because it's not getting him in football shape or whatever.

- Most people don't give a fuck about Rodgers or Andrews, Richie Shit.

- Hall of Fame voters don't vote based on what kind of person they are. You should know that. You should try to prove the people wrong for saying your writing has gone to shit, because, thus far, you doing nothing to prove them wrong.

Teresa's Anus...you really need to take a zoloft and calm down. I've seen some pretty crappy things written on this blog, but you take it to a new level (and that's not a compliment). I think Paris Hilton is a total turd so my solution is that I don't watch any TV show she's on and I damn sure don't read anything she writes or any article in which she is interviewed. If you hate RW so much, take a pass on this site and the radio show. You'll add many years to your life.

HOF - Whenever I'm contemplating potential Hall of Famers, whether or not he made wittle Richie cry is so not on the list of exclusions.

HP v. SMU - Technically, HP does have a better team than SMU, so maybe that's why they get the better practice facility.

Superbowl - Given Richie's record lately, if he's taking the Steelers then I'm taking the Packers big.

Aaron Rogers + ESPN chick - because no one cares?

Sounds like Haley has great insight, he should have a gig with mejia..Pam Anderson looks just like the rest of the 40 something strippers RW and his bros try to pick up at the party cove. Big thumbs up to Arodg, I would be trying to knock the front bottom out of Ms Erin too..if Mrs Broken Shoulder would give me a hall/ski pass. I'm going against the grain, and taking the Pack. I like GB's d-front against Pitt's o-line. And RW is a bigger poser than the Mexican guy dressed up as a bumblebee, keep Effing that chicken brutha.Brought home some cookbooks for the missus, from Paula Deen's restaraunt..looking forward to some scratchmade hoecakes ..if we can get to the store for some rations. Hope everyone has a happy SB..make some chili and stay in if you can..if your adventurous in the kitchen..google a recipe for Tamale Pie..it's easy and awesome on a cold day.

I have a Charles Haley story. It was 2001, and I was playing the pop-a-shot basketball game at Dave and Busters. I'm at the beginning of the game and all of a sudden I get bumped by this big, drunk black dude that had 2 white girls tagged along with him. It was Haley, and he just bumped/pushed me aside and took over playing the rest of the round of pop-a-shot then walked off with his chicks. No apologies, no dollar or two to make up for the lost game, nothing. It was the weirdest thing and any story of him being a complete asshole is likely completely true.
