Bad call

National chumps

Things blowed up real good in Columbus, Ohio, yesterday. According to NBC News, riot police used tear gas on the crowds. They also used pepper spray. Officers were called to multiple reports of dumpster and couch fires in the streets. The crowds were said to be "intense." Arrests were made.

Really Kinky

Oh, for God's sake, lighten up. It was a freakin' joke:

We're sorry. What the hell were we thinking?

Duty, honor, blah, blah, blah

No, jerkwad, they join to protect the interests of this country and serve unworthy idiots like you:

ESPN’s Colin Cowherd went off on a rant today about Americans who do and do not, in his view, deserve his “sympathies.”

Crossing the lines

Pity the NFL. Stung by criticism of its fumbling of the Ray Rice controversy, it seems befuddled about how to handle accusations against Adrian Peterson:

Wake-up calls

Janay Rice, victim of husband Ray's knockout punch, is lashing out at the media for "making us relive a moment in our lives that we regret everyday" and for taking "something away from the man that I love." That prompts this question:

A worthy rebuttal from the one person qualified to make it — or an attempt to shift blame?

Highlight reel

With fans like this . . .

Well, congratulations. We've survived to enjoy another NFL season. Pro football is about the only sport I still pay attention to, so naturally I'm on the opposite side of all those thumb-sucking dweebs who think our passions are fraught with symbolism about all that's wrong with the world:

ESPN regrets

He said, they said

Today's exercise in missing the point . . .
