Kornheiser on Canes

Discussion in 'Open Discussion (Work-safe)' started by wolfamngstsheep, May 5, 2004.

    Our first question today comes from Mr. E. Zegna, who writes, "I saw that photo in the paper of the Redskins' No. 1 draft choice, Sean Taylor, with his shorts falling off his behind. And I read where he said, 'I wear my clothes like that.' Really? Who designs his clothing, anyway?"

    At the moment it appears Sean Taylor has a clothing deal with a tent company. Some guys like their shorts loose. Mr. Taylor apparently likes his shorts off. It saves so much wear and tear on the fabric when your stuff just falls to the ground and you pick it up later -- like a penalty flag. During minicamp, Mr. Taylor once jumped to deflect a pass with one hand while grabbing onto his shorts to keep them up with his other hand. I've heard of being ambidextrous, but that's ridiculous. What exactly did he major in at Miami, exotic dancing? (And why does the phrase "a possible Gilbert Arenas situation" keep swirling in my head?) It's fine to say you prefer your clothing loose and baggy, but eventually Mr. Taylor will need a regulation NFL uniform. Exactly whose is he supposed to use, Jon Jansen's? Or are the Redskins going to convince Gilbert Brown to come out of retirement so Sean Taylor can have something appropriate to wear?

    Our next question comes from Mr. L. Coker, who writes, "Don't get me wrong. I'm thrilled the Redskins took Sean Taylor. But I thought the Redskins were going to draft his teammate, Kellen Winslow Jr.?"

    Apparently, so did Mr. Winslow. When he wasn't drafted by the Redskins, Mr. Winslow called Joe Gibbs a liar, and vowed that the Redskins "will pay" for not drafting him. Well, if that accurately reflects Mr. Winslow's level of maturity, the Redskins should pat themselves on the back for avoiding this spoiled brat. Imagine if you're the Cleveland Browns, and after you draft this dope he spends most of his news conference talking about the Washington Redskins? Earth to Kellen, we're trying to sell tickets to folks in Shaker Heights, not Marlow Heights.

    What is it with tight ends from Miami? First, there's world-class jerk Jeremy Shockey. Next, there's his apprentice, Kellen Winslow II. If there's one sure way to get into a fight in Washington, it's by calling Joe Gibbs a liar. (Though another sure way is by getting into a mulch dispute with Wanda "Float Like A Butterfly, Sting Like A Bee" Baucus, wife of the Montana senator.) After Winslow got drafted by Cleveland, his agent, one of those infamous Poston Brothers, announced that Winslow should be paid like LeBron James! Well, even if Winslow gets paid more like Etta James, Poston will probably initial every page of the contract -- and then sue the team anyway, like he has with LaVar Arrington.

    hehe...i love reading reactions about these things at grassy.

    "ohhhh the media hates us"
    "kornheiser is a jerk cuz he doesnt kiss our ass all day long, wilbon needs to set him straight cuz he is a canes fan"
    "if winslow said the redskins lied to him than i believe it!" (thats the best one)

    then you get one of the 10 reasonable miami fans to say things like:
    "this isnt bad, he was just making a joke about the clothes, and winslow has a big mouth. i dont see the problem here"

    and he gets bombarded by idiots who think hes a florida state fan in disguise.

    where is the "I hate winslow thread?"

    I dont think that miami players or fans have much class and to tell you the truth I wasnt to happy the Browns selected Winslow, I cant stand that big mouth :pissed: :paranoid: :susp: :lift: :osu3: :osu2:

    Honestly, I don't take much solace in poking fun at Taylor's clothing, Winslow's immaturity and stupid comments, or the Canes fans who defend it all and/or accuse anyone who talks of such things as being anti-Canes.

    OSU has had more than it's share of immaturity, stupid comments, negative incidents and/or criminal allegations/activity the past couple years, and some OSU fans react the same as the Canes fans in question.

    Sorry, but the last couple years, I haven't seen much difference between the two - OSU and Miami - and as an alumnus that concerns me.
