We Should Totally Take His Word For It

Sayeth ESPN:

Even if TCU and Boise State run the table, they still don't deserve to be in the Bowl Championship Series title game, Ohio State president E. Gordon Gee said Wednesday.

Because, really, who knows more about teams that don't deserve to play in the BCS title game than the president of Ohio State?

Illiteracy Is A Terrible Thing

This article (brief synopsis: SWPLs think boys should be raised to be sissies, have begun giving their sons girly names) is making the rounds.  The writer and the various pantywaists she quotes are very silly.  I won't belabor it; we've covered this ground around here before: boys are not girls, etc.  For my part, though, the funniest bit is this:

Fully half of the names on the most recent boys' Top 100 list are choices that break with masculine naming tradition, compared with less than 20 percent of the names on the 1960 boys' list. These include traditional names with feminine qualities such as softer sounds and/or vowel endings: Joshua, Sebastian, Elijah.

I can't speak for Sebastian, but Joshua was the conqueror of Jericho and Elijah was quite possibly the hardest man who ever lived. In comparison to either of these cats, John Rambo is a huge pussy.  If their names are feminine, I'm not sure what would count as masculine.

Preservation

Today is Voting Day on our new mascot. In order to vote, you have to click through a long propaganda-laden slideshow. Halfway through you come to this slide:


I've screen-capped this slide and posted it here in order to preserve it. In ten years when "Rebels" starts to slip away but we are assured, again, that the name "Ole Miss" ISN'T GOING ANYWHERE AND YOU PEOPLE ARE CRAZY TO THINK IT WILL, we will have this memory of what we were assured at this phase of the transformation.

Howler of the Week

OK, it was last week.  The point stands.

Depictions of the remaining three options – the Rebel Land Shark, the Rebel Black Bear and Hotty Toddy — will be released for public review as a part of the poll on Wednesday, and the committee said it has taken more time than expected to ensure the designs presented are respectful of Ole Miss culture.

Say, you know what mascot would be really "respectful of Ole Miss culture"? 

Colonel Reb.

It's a Slippery Business, the Internet

From SI.com. here's a surefire way to rack up the hits (and terrify 49ers fans):



Immediate reaction: WHAT?!??!!!  After clicking: oh, Nate Davis.  OK, then.

Wanna Be President?

Look, I ain't the President of Barack Obama's fan club. But this picture really make me feel for him.


Check out the hair in particular. He looks like he's aged 15 years since January of 09.

It Just Keeps Getting Better

Yes, yes, I'm easily amused.
