Chiefs Come Back to Win Super Bowl; Halftime Show Unexpectedly Goes NC-17

  Does America want to see a middle-aged Puerto Rican woman shake her rump and climb a stripper pole? Like it or not, that’s what millions of Americans watched in the Super Bowl halftime show. Jennifer Lopez, age 50, starred in the show, and Todd Starnes was not amused: “Mommy, what’s a stripper pole?” I […]

‘We Should Have Just Let Him Die’

  According to police in Pittsburgh, after Terrelle Pryor was stabbed by his girlfriend Shalaya Briston on Nov. 30, one of her friends said Briston was acting in self-defense, and added, “We should have just let him die.” A 6-foot-4, 230-pound wide receiver, Pryor played quarterback in college, twice leading the Ohio State Buckeyes to […]

NFL Star Makes New Year’s Resolution

  This seems newsworthy: NFL free agent Antonio Brown had a rocky 2019, getting sacked by the New England Patriots after accusations of sexual misconduct and later apologizing to fans for “inexcusable” behavior. He’s planning to make changes in 2020, with not dating white women chief among them. It’s a resolution he announced on Twitter […]

University of Tennessee Football Program Has Finally Reached Rock Bottom

  Morgan Hood is a worthless backstabbing whore who, perhaps not coincidentally, attends the University of Tennessee. While it would probably be unfair, even by the trash-talking standards of SEC football rivalry, for me to say that all Tennessee girls are worthless backstabbing whores, I think every Alabama fan will agree that Ms. Hood is […]

Roll Tide!

  After the conclusion of The Other Podcast Saturday night, my colleague John Hoge and I went to dinner with my brother Kirby who, thanks to generous support from the tip-jar hitters is now recuperating here. After dinner, Hoge dropped Kirby and I off at my son Jim’s house, where we watched the Alabama Crimson […]

A Great Football Saturday

For the opening of The Other Podcast, I did “College Football Scoreboard,” figuring that every real American cares as much as I do, because if you don’t love college football, what are you, a Commie? Assuming you are not a Communist, you had to love Saturday, because Alabama won big (of course), and there were […]

Bart Starr, R.I.P.

  My first clear memory of football was my Dad pointing at the television screen and saying, “That’s Bart Starr — he played for ’Bama.” The quarterback of the Green Bay Packers was a three-time MVP and is now in the Hall of Fame, but Dad was Class of 1950 at Tuscaloosa, so what mattered […]

The Championship Mentality

My friend Jeff Quinton is a Clemson fan and, as such, I hate him. Jeff and I became friends online more than 20 years ago, when I was still living in Georgia and he was involved in South Carolina politics. Little did I know, when we connected in those dial-up modem days, that Clemson would […]
