I figuratively cut the cheese while literally cutting the cheese. Strange but true. I was taking Chase to the bathroom before his tae kwon do banquet started. One of his friends wanted to come with us. But he was with his mom and she told him he had to go to the ladies' room with her, I almost said "don't worry, I'll watch him" but thankfully I stopped myself. At the same tae kwon do banquet, there was a self-defense demonstration. One man in a blue ghi fended off four "attackers" wearing black. Julian screamed out "he killed all the black guys." If there are too many female main characters in TV, movies and books could you call that a "heroine overdose?" Lolo Jones got kicked off "Dancing with the Stars" before she could completely disprove the stereotype that all black people are good dancers. Words Mrs. Poop never thought she would have to say: "don't pee on your brother!" She did have to say them. But she was too late.

Jameis Winston is a good quarterback. Jameis Winston never gets punished for the bad things he does. These things are not unrelated. Jameis Winston sexually assaulted a girl, stole soda from Burger King (drinking out of ketchup cup), stole food from a grocery store, and fired BB guns on campus breaking windows of the complex where he lived. Winston avoided any real punishment for any of these incidents. But now he has gotten his comeuppance. For what? Let me first start with a video (NSFW language, ok with headphones): That is a fake video, purportedly of a reporter working a missing person story saying when they find the woman that he will "fuck her right in the pussy." Harmful, mildly funny, if juvenile, internet video. As those things tend to do, it went somewhat viral and became a meme. A meme Jameis Winston must have found funny. He stood on a table in the middle of the Florida State student union and shouted "fuck her right in the pussy." Florida State has reached its breaking point. They could take no more of Winston's behavior. He had to be punished and punished severely and swiftly. Florida has suspended him for one half, that's 30 minutes of football time, of Saturday's game against Clemson.
"Flawless - Remix" - Beyonce featuring Nicki Minaj This is not an endorsement of this song. I think it is kind of bad, but good compared to most of the shit Nicki Minaj puts out there. The reason it gets SOTW treatment is because of the sample at 2:06. Yes, that's right, the amazing riff from "SpottieOttieDopaliscious" (SOTW, 11/11/09).

The Redskins may soon have a full-blown controversy on their hands. Robert Griffin III is going miss at least 6 weeks after injuring his ankle against the Jaguars.

Another disappointing start to the season, getting 60% of the games right but losing my best bet as always. But this week I feel I have found a really good best bet, but who knows about the other games. And remember, I am always on the lookout for good teams that lost in Week 1 and don't want to go 0-2. new england -4 MINNESOTA This one seems pretty obvious to me especially without child abuser Adrian Peterson in the backfield. Yes, the Patriots are going to decline at sometime and they looked awful last week. But I think they can still cover this relatively modest spread on the road. GREEN BAY -7 1/2 new york jets This is another easy one. The Jets beat a bad team at home. The Packers lost to a good team on the road. The Packers will win this game, my only worry is if somehow the Jets can keep it close. INDIANAPOLIS -3 philadelphia I do like the Eagles this year, but they did not play well in the win against Jacksonville last week. The Colts got down really early against Denver and almost came all the way back. Again, I don't expect them to lose at home to fall to 0-2. The question: can they cover? Once again, a modest spread so I will take my chances. dallas +3 1/2 TENNESSEE Ok, so the Cowboys looked really bad last week. But a lot of that was turnovers, which are often bad luck. Ok, maybe in last week's game they weren't so much bad luck as bad play. But still, I have a feeling they can keep this close or even get the win on the road. BEST BET atlanta +5 1/2 CINCINNATI Maybe it's my Hard Knocks bias. Or my bounce back bias. But I am expecting big things from the Falcons this year. These two teams are very similar on offense and can both put a lot of points on the board, but I still feel this spread is just too big for a team as good as Atlanta. Last Week: 3-2 (2 points) Season: 3-2 (2 points) Best Bets: 0-1 (0-1) Home Favorites: 1-1 (1-1) Home Underdogs: 0-1 (0-1) Road Favorites: 0-0 (0-0) Road Underdogs: 2-0 (2-0)
