UNNECESSARY ROUGHNESS: GREG WEEKS SAYS GOODBYE TO RANDY MOSS AND HELLO TO MEN WEARING PINK TIGHTS
I’d like to begin this week by congratulating the Lions on their crushing 44-6 win against the Rams. Look out Chicago, Detroit is coming for you!
Over the last couple of weeks we’ve seen state vs. state action. This week is no different. In an upset that took seven years the Oakland Raiders defeated the San Diego Chargers. Their win brings the division to a three way tie.
Here in New England the Pats say goodbye to wide receiver Randy Moss. After reportedly telling QB Tom Brady he “looks like a girl” and not getting the attention on the field he thinks he needs, Randy went back to the Vikings. New England received a third round pick in the 2011 draft. As much of a pain as Moss may or may not have been, trading him in the early season for a third round pick has some of us raising our eyebrows. Who’s going to keep the secondary busy while Brady throws to everyone else? It seems to me that Moss wanted to break records and leave behind a name rather than be a part of a team. At least now he gets a second shot at the Jets.
This month is Breast Cancer Awareness Month which means women and men all around the world are touching their boobs in order to keep healthy. It also means that grown men in battle wear bright pink. I love the ref’s whistles, the excessive celebrations and, my favorite, the post game interview all in neon pink. Cancer is no joke but how can you not laugh as these grown men run around doing something most consider “manly,” wearing the most effeminate color possible. It’s hard for me not to laugh when a receiver misses a pass, arms outstretched in an accusatory manner, and looks at the QB like it’s his fault, all while wearing pink sweatbands. It’s awesome!
