rooneys to maddox: you suck

well, maybe that's a bit harsh. but you can't help but wonder exactly what they thought when the steelers drafted roethlisberger for quarterback first thing off the bat. instead of filling a much needed position in, say, anywhere but reciever, they took a quarterback. i don't think it necessarily was the best move, but then i don't make a zillion dollars trying to call these things.

maddox, though, got the message. he's currently skulking and playing golf in texas, and blew off a meeting with the stillers because he's "too emotional". awwwww, poor baby. he wanted to renegotiate his contract up from $750k to $2 mil since he's playing starter, but that's not looking good. and the market for second rate quarterbacks ain't too good right now either, so he'll probably just have to deal with a lowly million or million and a half dollars for the next year.

gee, my heart just aches. hey tommy, guess what. football's a tough game, on and off the field. deal with it. whining like the kid that gets picked last for kickball dosen't make you attractive to the team you play for now or a team that you may want to play for in the future. do your job, do it well, and there may be another starter post in it for you yet.

at least you aren't back in the xfl.


howdy, thanks for stopping by. what you're looking at is the intermittent ramblings of an iraqi vet, college student, goth-poseur, comic book reading, cheesy horror loving, punk listening, right-leaning, tech-obsessed, poorly typing, proudly self-proclaimed geek. occasionally, probably due to these odd combinations, i like to think i have some interesting things to say; this is where they wind up.

"I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us...We need the books that affect us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside of us.
