Today's Post Is Brought To You
By the word Schadenfreude. For the folks who type in caps, let me explicate: Schadenfreude is a noun, albeit an abstract one, signifying joy in the misfortune of others. Since Germans treat language like box cars in a switching yard, it literally translates to "damage-joy".
Now, I know exactly what it's like to watch your team tank the big game. So out of respect for our host, The Honk, I won't dwell on the fact that the city of Dallas does playoff games about as well as it does Presidential motorcades. By the way, T.O.? Don Zimmer called and said to man up a little. Your one man show as Isaac Hayes doing his imititation of a schoolgirl who just found out she didn't get Hannah Montana tickets got mixed reviews at best. Still, it was probably better than the "I wasn't the one who got tired pretending to have sex with Jessica Simpson" rant you originally prepared.
Actually, I'm much more interested in Handsome Norv Turner and the Junior Varsity That Could. Forget about whether they can beat New England. I want to see the sideline action. Phillip Rivers brings more cheap heat than anyone since the Iron Sheik.
Don't be surprised if Phillip "The Brain" Rivers takes a folding chair to a Patriots' cheerleader on Sunday.
