Welcome to the first installment of Fannation's Love it? or Hate it?...as usual we take a subject and tell you whether we love it or hate it. Well, except for this time.
We want you to feel free to throw in your two cents.
Humor us...tell us which subjects you love and which ones you hate.
Todays panelists are iB4 e, Harry Callahan, RStowe, KPKahder and a special guest, panelist, our favorite F'N Clown, Homey D
So onto today's topics.
First up is Manny Ramirez.
iB4 e - Hate him. Do I really need a reason. He's a blowtard with a capital TARD. In fact he is more like a blowturd. I wish he would go ahead and get pregnant so we don't have to put up with him any longer. That's why he was taking fertility pills right? To get pregnant?
rstowe - love and hate the man. Love him for being the best right-handed hitter of our generation. Hate him for being the lazy player with severe attitude problem. The way he left Boston was just despicable...you NEVER GIVE UP ON YOUR TEAM! also hate him for testing positive for a masking agent for roids (fertility pills).
I always thought Manny was too lazy to do all the work needed to hide any roid use, so figured he was "clean."
Harry Callahan - Hate him. He was working in a homeless shelter feeding people for a good cause and one homeless man complained that after he served him...he found a 14-inch hair in his soup.
KpKahder - Love him. Don't know why. Maybe because he's a nitwit, maybe because of his hitting, maybe because of his "Manny being Manny" antics.. I just like the guy.. he makes baseball season interesting.
Homey D - Hate it. The guy gets too many free passes with the public because of his image as a candid and freewheeling everyman. He's as dirty as Bonds, A-Rod, and Clemens, yet he somehow still manages to be loved by the fans...well, fans outside Boston.
The next subject is the UFL.
iB4 e - Love it. I know it will never compete with the NFL, but I will be watching as many games as I can until it folds. I loved the XFL and the USFL. What I love the most about is that it won't have nearly the number of prima donnas in it, just guys who love football but weren't quite good enough to make it to the show.
Harry Callahan - Hate it. Isn't that where Quincy Carter plays between arrests?...Don't know any of the players, and I don't have the time for it...NFL is where it's at.
rstowe - is this the new football league? If so, I hate it. All it's going to be is basically semi-pro football. Guys who either aren't good enough for the NFL or too old/broken for the NFL.
Nobody watched the XFL (and it wasn't very good), and basically these are going to be the same players without Vince McMahon running it. Thanks but no thanks.
KPKahder - Hate it and Love it. Hate it because it's four teams. Four! What kind of league has four teams? There's no competition with four teams. Love it because, hey, it's football and like IB said, it would be nice to watch a game where the game was about the game and not about money.
Homey D - Love it. We could always use more football and, at the rate we keep seeing players hemming themselves up in Commissioner Goodell's conduct policy, we might as well institute a halfway house league that's win/win for the players, the NFL, and the fans.
Next subject is Demolition Derbies.
iB4 e - Love them. We have them here in Austin on a daily basis. It's called rush hour. What's not to love about demolition derbies? You get to smash the heck out of other cars legally. Sign me up.
Harry Callahan - Love it. That's me on the way to work every day...you should see all the dents on my car...no, actually i have never watched one all the way through...this is one of those things that is way up in the middle of your sports channels on Directv...you may find yourself stopping on it for a sec while channel surfing but then come to your senses and move along.
rstowe - Demolition Derbies: never seen one, don't plan to. I don't have a mullet and my family tree has many branches on it.
KPKahder - I think they're fun. Once a year at the county fair. Where else can you smash into a bunch of cars and not see your insurance go up ? Not so much fun on RT 128 from Canton to Burlington though.
Homey D - Love it. Other than monster trucking, there are no other "sporting events" that openly celebrate vehicular destruction quite like demolition derbies. For maximum attention draw, put Dante Stallworth and Leonard Little in the mix.
Our last topic is Plaxico Burress.
iB4 e - Hate him. For one he played for the Giants which is reason enough. But two he's a spoiled idiot thug who is too stupid to wear pants that will hold a gun properly.
Harry Callahan - Hate him. I have disliked this dude all the way back to his Steelers days..always proclaiming a win against the Pats or something stupid like that...he must drive you nuts if he's on your team...or was.
rstowe - Hate him. Not only because as a Giants fan, I believe he ruined last season, but who can truly like or love a complete asstard like this man?
Constantly shows up late (or never) for team functions and then thinks that carrying a gun in the waistband of sweatpants was the best idea.
You just signed an extension for a TON of money, hire a damn security guard who is licensed to carry a gun if you're worried about being in public or better yet, stay the hell home and have drinks/women/friends come to you instead.
KPKahder - Why is it every time I hear his name I think of smash proof fake glass? I hate Plaxico. For multiple reasons. For 2007, for his big mouth and of course for his stupidity.
But most of all, I hate him for his irresponsibility. I hope he goes to jail for a few years. Should have taken the plea deal, Plax, you moron.
But no. He cries like a girl and whimpers "I can't go to jail; I'm scared of jail." Remember that next time you want to pretend to be a thug, moron.
Homey D - Hate it. The guy was a tool before he shot himself in the leg. No sympathy here.
Well that's it folks. Oh, wait ! Someone's at the door... Be right back !
Well, look who's here ! Its our pal Jyoti ! The smallest woman in the world!
Welcome, Jyoti ! Would you like to give us your opinions on our topics today ?
Jyoti - I surely would ! Hi Harry ! Hi IB ! <wink wink> ! I will pass on my opinions to you and you can do what you will with them.
UFL - Hate it. Are you kidding me? I'm not much bigger than the ball, they would be kicking me through the upright. No, thanks; I'll pass.
Manny Ramirez: - Hate him. I actually keep mispronouncing his name as Runny Manurez.
Demolition Derbies - Love them. It's great. I can't even see over the steering wheel so that gives me an advantage. I put the petal to the metal and just keep turning the steering wheel until I hit something.
Plaxico Burress - In my village, a man such as this would be laughed at forever. Oh, it is the same in your villages? Good.
Well that's it folks..we hope you liked it..if not..as always..we could give a crap.
