A Community just for Football Fans…

Just in time for the 2008 Football season Football Jabber has added The Locker Room Community.  Think MySpace for the football fan!  From the NFL Draft all the way to the Super Bowl…

Dear Arthur…

Just before the Monday Night game with New Orleans, Arthur Blank wanted to be reassured that Coach was sticking around…

“He stood up, we shook hands and he said, ‘You have a head coach,’ ” Blank said.

A day later…you know the story. The Owner gets a “Dear Arthur” letter…

“Out of my respect for you, I am letting you know that, with a heavy heart, I resigned today as the Head Coach of the Atlanta Falcons. This decision was not easy but was made in the best interest of me and my family. While my desire would have been to finish out what has been a difficult season for us all, circumstances did not allow me to do so. I appreciate your hard work and wish you the best.

“Sincerely, Bobby Petrino.”

What a punk ass way to go out. That sounds like when Jr. High School kids break up. Cool to your face and then she sticks a note in your locker. Bitch…

Now, you don’t much more laid back than Warrick Dunn. But to read what Dunn had to say it doesn’t sound like Bobby was liked much anyway…

Petrino out, FALCONS to LA!

Not even 24 hours after the Saints beat him like the red headed step kid that he is, Bobby Petrino is to be leaving Atlanta to take the Coaching gig at Arkansas. I don’t tihnk anyone will notice if they play without a coach the last few games but I’m sure they will “appoint” someone.

Wow…what a year,huh Arthur Blank? Your QB is doing the next 23 months with a dog dancing on a ball singing 24/7 as his cell mate, your coach bailed. HEY! Let’s start a rumor that they are moving to L.A! After all the years as a Saints fan that I have had ot listen to it I’m all for a rival.

Heisman Finalists Announced

No Nobody from FSU made it but DAMN, look at that!

The Heisman Trophy Finalists were announced today.  This reminds me, the first Heisman Trophy resides at Senior High School here in Dubuque (one of two of them, the other is at the University of Chicago…Jay Berwanger attended both and gave them to his schools).  I think I’m going to hang out in the parking lot and put a 12 pack and a pack of smokes bounty on it for a kid to swipe it for me.  Wouldn’t that be cool to have?

So anyway, the finalists…

I’ll chime in later in the week with some thoughts.  In the meantime if you want to get in on our voting for this which I will add the results later in the week, CLICK HERE.

Missouri QB Chase Daniel

Arkansas RB Darren McFadden

Florida QB Tim Tebow

Hawaii QB Colt Brennan
