Idiots of the Day: Club Envy

North Florida dance troupe, or group of terrorists?  The FBI-NYPD Joint Terrorism Task Force doesn’t give a fuck.

This just goes to show you the disconnect between NYC and the rest of America.  Who in their right mind would EVER think it’s kosher to ditch your car and go running through the Lincoln Tunnel, while dressed in full camouflage?

“I am from Florida. We don’t have tunnels,” explained Terrell James, 24, the choreographer for the group explained to New Jersey Journal. “Apparently we couldn’t do that.”

Could you imagine sitting there in traffic while these morons go running past your car in fatigues, like they just planted something in the tunnel?  You’re trapped in bumper to bumper traffic miles under the Hudson River and you’re about to be an extra in “Daylight.”  What do you do?  Do you go into straight Bear Grylls survivor mode, and find the nearest service exit?  Pray for Stallone to show up?  Or sit there in your car, hoping and praying that it’s just a dance group running late for BET’s 106th and Park?

This incident is a microcosm for exactly what is wrong with our world today.  People are too concerned with the prospect of becoming the Hulk Hogans of their respective categories – in this case team dancing – to realize the Idiocracy [and consequences] of their actions.

The real surprise in this story?  That they tried to get through the Lincoln Tunnel at 5:15pm.  Everyone knows that’s an exercise in futility.  [rim shot]

Quote of the Day: John Daly

ESPN has a feature up today about  John Daly, the Stone Cold Steve Austin of the golfing world.  Apparently, his weight loss is effecting his style of play:

“I used to be able to put my elbows on my love handles and putt pretty good. Now they’re all over the place.”

Leave it to John Daly to experience negative effects from weight loss.  Somebody get this guy a cheeseburger and a 40 ounce!  He’s got the Hong Kong Open to prepare for.

NBC Takes a Subtle Swing at NFL Hypocrisy

It’s quite common for a network to play music when heading to commercial break during a sports broadcast.  NBC, for example, opts for popular music, while Fox prefers inspirational orchestration accompanied by a dancing robot.

Last night, however, NBC Sunday Night Football used its “we’ll be right back” music to take a subtle swing at NFL hypocrisy.  Given the league’s latest vendetta against ultra-violent, concussion-inducing, helmet-to-helmet hits, is there any doubt that NBC’s decision to play BRAIN STEW by Green Day is tasteless sarcasm?

It’s likely that the average viewer isn’t as good at “Name That Tune” as I am – but I digress.  This must have been a preconceived poke by some snarky producer, right?   Or was it an honest mistake?

On a related note, former Denver Broncos offensive lineman Mark Schlereth told us what he really thought about the NFL’s new mentality on SportsCenter, and it’s pure gold:
