WTF is soccer right?

Joerg-SpraveCrazy slingshot guy still has it!  If you’ve followed this blog for a long period of time you know I have little use for professional sports.  I caught the end of that FIFA World Cup game at my cousin’s house though, and I have to say I enjoyed seeing that Argentine star Messi pout after his loss.  Pure gold that soccer awards a trophy to the first place loser and follows them around on camera for a good half an hour while they sulk.  Poor guy makes only a reported $64 million a year for running around on the grass… rough life.  113 minutes until that one and only goal was scored… now that’s what I call boring.

Or football ball cannon if you’re a hipster:

UsherLOL cannon #2 probably resulted in some stained undies.  He didn’t stick around for #3.  I like these guys.

Yawn:

The Entire NFL collection of present and former players, and all they could get was five?  Yea that’s a fail…

Deion-SandersThey five are: Deion Sanders, Marshall Faulk, Emmitt Smith, Michael Irvin, Ladainian Tomlinson since I know some of you guys are always looking for new people to boycott. :P

This whole demand a plan garbage always was useless, and is becoming even more usless now that they are reaching to every corner of the celebrity world to try and get average people on the bandwagon.  What’s next, the cast of Storage Wars demanding a plan?  PuhLeeze.

Hired by the New York Giants to secure a win:

The plan worked.  <— That was my attempt at a football joke.

If you want to see some footage from a different stadium with different snipers make sure to check out the Stadium Snipers post from a while back.

I bet those guys get paid a lot.  Even though the chances of ever having to take a shot are extremely low, the stress level would be through the roof with that many people everywhere.

I wonder if they are scanning the crowd the whole time with binoculars?  Maybe they are looking through the rifle and keeping their eye on certain individuals relayed to them by support on the ground?

A video about security at this year’s superbowl:

So security (including F-18s) cost over 10 million dollars by that one guys estimate?  Big deal, considering they’re charging $3.5M for a 30 second tv commercial.  Plus you can imagine all the money they make off tickets, food/drinks, souvenirs etc..?

The anti-illegal gun ad that will be airing during the Superbowl tomorrow:

I wasn’t thrilled about the idea of this ad in the first place, but I was at least optimistic would have spent the money well.   What a useless pile of crap though.  All anyone is going to see is two old guys in football jerseys that they are already sick of hearing talk, and then tune out. Congratulations, you just wasted $3.5 million dollars.

Oh and you both support the 2nd Amendment?  Is that some sort of updated version i’m not aware off that states “If you’re rich you have the right to be armed and/or protected”? You hypocritical scrooge-mc-duck-type-motherf….

Illegal gun? *facepalm* are people still using that term?

NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg and his national coalition against illegal guns plan to air a 30-second ad during the Super Bowl where he and Boston Mayor Tom Menino act out something anti-illegal-gun that plays on the rivalry between NY and Boston.  According to the article, National Super Bowl ads are fetching a record $3.5 million for 30-second spots.

Full Story – HERE

$3.5M for a 30 second spot?  Wouldn’t that money be better spent on something that will actually make a difference?  Perhaps pay for some police overtime? Maybe crack a few cases? Make a bunch of arrests?   Nahhhh forget it, this is more showy.

We need to repair the broken Federal background check system!  Gun show loophole! Gun show loophole!  How about everyone wakes up and smells the coffee and realizes that criminals do not care about background checks.  Even if that system became so air tight that a criminal could not possibly buy a new gun, the used market and underground market would still thrive.

Anyone want to weigh in?
