Week In Review: Whining, Complaining, and Ranting

Since I have decided to be more consistent in my blog entries and hope to have regular posts most days of the week, I thought it would be fun to include a week in review--with a twist.  These posts will not review the events of the week in the world of sports; instead, here I will mock and barate everything I wrote over the last six days.  In other words, this is where I refer back to every serious post and laugh at how intense they actually are.  So, for those of you who rolled your eyes at some of my posts this week, now is my chance to show I understand your pain.  More importantly, it is a chance to apologize and recant some of the statements I might of made rashly.  So, here we go: Installment number one of "Week in Review: Whining, Complaining and Ranting"!

Whining - The other posters on the Packers board bore me; I would rather hide on my blog where I can entertain myself!

So, here's the thing - I overreacted.  I guess here is where I apologize to the posters who don't irritate me to no end.  Those who already know my positions on certain hot button issues (more on that later) know to whom I'm referring.  I have been on those boards since the whole Favre controversy started (and well before that), so I've seen the difference.  Packers' fans are split and some posters can be rude against those with opposing positions.  It is irritating fighting a pointless fight.  But it is still pathetic on my part to write a blog compaining about this while being too cowardly to return to the boards and continue discussing with the Packers' community, no matter how split it is.  I'll be back (whether you like it or not).  Oh, and on a lighter note (that is the point of this blog entry), I sure chose a stupid opening blog to begin regular entries.  Apparently, I attack those who contribute to the Packers' board and expect them to read my rants?  I'm a joke.  Oh, and very boring.  Maybe I should have just said that to begin with.  In summary, I'm boring, the Packers board is not, and fighting over the same topic for years to come is more entertaining than my complaining about it.  Not fun.  But eventful.

Complaining - Excessive Penalties are bad; but too many games is worse.  This just in from the NFL--athletes are sissies!

Totally right here, but I doubt many read this after I insulted them with my last post.  In short, fun is lacking with all these rules and ironies of how saftey is supposedly more effective when calling excessive fouls than when adding more wear-and-tear of a longer schedule.  That line made absolutely no sense, but I don't care.  Read the blog or find something more productive to do, whatever that may be.  You know, for all this talk about fun, I certainly don't know how to have it.  This is probably my most boring post yet.  At least I scared away any potential readers before they even reached this.

"My opinion matters," says the guy who told those who have opposing views to shut up .

Here is where I act like my readers deserve to know my position on everything.  Frankly, I doubt you will get very many follow up entries.  I don't keep promises that well.  So, to the few people who actually care, be prepared for disappointment.  Doesn't matter, though, since the one reader who probably actually follows this blog is already disappointed.  That's right, I disappoint myself.

For those of you keeping track, my attempt at humor so far has focused on how no one cares about what I write.  That doesn't mean you are a nobody if you are reading this blog.  It just means I don't know how to be funny.

Ranting - Big names don't mean big talent, just a name on a jersey.  A name that is famous.  Yeah, I pull for the underdog.

Did you know the NFL has talent outside of popular players?  You do?  Then why did I bother to write this blog?  (By the way, this is essentially my position on free agency, though I will repeat myself later.  It's what I do.  I'm a broken record, and yet I still like to accuse everyone else of being the boring ones).

People I talked about over the last week (you know, so I can raise my score; creative, right?  Oh, it's not?)

Aaron Rodgers, Brett Favre, Jay Cutler, Albert Haynesworth, Mike McCarthy, Ted Thompson, Duke Preston, Josh McDaniels, Me

Teams I mentioned (same reason)

Redskins, Packers, Titans, Broncos

Reviewing the Review

In the blog you are reading now, I wasted your time by promising to deliver a fun entry about how boring I am.  You could have come up with better things yourself.  If anyone actually reads this, feel free to comment below and hopefully, you can be funnier than I am (or at least more interesting).

Until next week . . .
