Going to an NFL game is supposed to be exhilarating.Â The tailgate party, the steamy scrumptious hot dogsâ¦ cheering your team on in the crisp cold air.Â What the heck has happened?Â There have been loud, boisterous fans at football games for a hundred yearsâ¦ but things have changed.Does a family actually feel safe when some burly dudes in the next row are screaming obscenities at each other the entire game?Â I used to laugh when I saw scenes of soccer violence in Europeâ¦ with some fans actually sequestered behind cages.Â Itâs not so funny now.Â I donât know what the answer isâ¦ but the best view of the game might be from my couch.
So baseball pundits are all atwitter about Alex Rodriquez. He may have taken part in some pricey poker games with the likes of Tobey Maguireâ¦. and this could lead to a suspension. Â I know Alex is an easy target.Â Heâs rich, heâs got all the babesâ¦ and heâs a punk.Â From what Iâve heard, he wasnât dealing drugs, torturing animals, or molesting underage girls.Â He played some poker.Â And if youâre sitting with a cash player like Tobey Maguire, youâre running with a high stakes crowd.Â Do you know what they call guys like Alex Rodriquez?Â A fish.Â And the big fish with lots of cash are calledâWhales.âIt reminds me of the Alec Baldwin scene.. âTheyâre waiting to give you their money.Â Are you gonna take it?Â Are you man enough to take it?â
