UNNECESSARY ROUGHNESS WITH THE RED CHORD’S GREG WEEKS: SCOTT STAPP CLEARS THE BENCH
I love T-giving!!! Tons of food, great family discourse fueled by alcohol, and classic throwback jersey football! With the Surgeon General promoting a vegetarian diet for the nation, I enjoyed as much ham and turkey as I could before Tofurkey becomes a national pastime.
Fights! Besides the scuffles between the Pats and Lions, this week saw a rare beast in the NFL known as a bench clearer. During the Tennessee-Houston game, Texans’ receiver Andre Johnson and Titans’ cornerback Cortland Finnegan decided to exchange pleasantries in the fourth quarter. The Texans were on their way to their first shut out in six years, which led to some heated exchanges on the line culminating in a helmet tossing punch fest. The two were ejected, and we’ll see how much money the fisticuffs will cost them.
The Browns held their breath as Panthers kicker John Kasay attempted a 42 yard field goal kick. Kasay wiffed, leaving the Browns to win it by one point. San Diego breezed past the Colts as they pick up steam in the AFC West right behind Kansas City.
So I know this is a football blog but I had to share this with everyone. I’m sure most of you have seen this video, but when it comes to the internet, I’m usually a couple years behind. I give you Scott Stapp singing a “theme song” for the Florida Marlins. Apparently this song is based on a song that Mr. Stapp wrote for his son called “Will Soar.” In a video in which a shirtless Scott explains to his band what the song is about, we get to see the lyric sheet, which is titled “Will Sore” — which leads me to ask, “Did Scott Stapp graduate grade school?” Enjoy!
If you don’t visit The Red Chord on MySpace, Greg just might have to pen an ode to his favorite actor, Christopher Walkin’.
