Cheers and Jeers: Old Crusty Edition

It's been awhile but it's time to get back to some old fashion cheers and jeers. There's just some traditional values and mores (like being married by a giant fish) that should never change. Cheering and Jeering is one of them. So without further ado.....

Jeers: To Chris Bosh. In the contest between stupidity and malice I think Bosh consistently picks stupidity. In various interviews over the past month Bosh has admitted that the talent express to South Beach had been in the works for months. Last week Bosh admitted that he put out mix messages intentionally (read lies) to fans for "entertainment". Maybe I'm old fashioned but I'm unclear how admitting that you lie to people and turn ingthe NBA into professional wrestling improves well anything?

Jeers: To Ben Rothlisberger. Rothlisberger got some deserved heat from his hometown for his recent behavior. In response Rothlisberger removed the name of his hometown (Findley, Ohio) from his Pittsburgh bio and put a fictitious one in it's place. Theoretically it's the name of his school but he ended up misspelling it. There's two actions I can not cheer: spite and poor spelling.

Jeers: To the PGA for ruling out Dustin Johnson. There are rules and then there are guidelines. My long standing mantra in all sports is don't let the refs decide a game and the PGA assuredly failed that test.

Cheers: To 17 days until football starts up again. Hooray.

And our C&J gal of the week.....random Oktoberfest Girl

1) I disagree with your opinion about "being married by a giant fish." I believe Admiral Ackbar is marrying the woman on the right and slave-Leia is the one presiding over the ceremony.
2) Chris Bosh is not the sharpest tool in the shed. He's not savvy. And you are right, he is dumb. He is the one who accidentally said shortly after the "Decision:":
"it's nice after all these months that everything worked out the way we planned. Oops, I mean days." Then he now admits how he had so much fun intentionally putting out mixed messages. Yes, he is delusional and also has no self-awareness.
3) The PGA always has insane rules! PGA events are like a cross between taking a bar exam and having an athletic event.

Don't do it, Admiral! It's a trap!
