If you have never seen this standup routine from an HBO comedy special in the 80’s you are in for one hell of a treat.

There is two things that should be clear.

Petrie is a jerk and a coward.

First here is why he is a jerk:

“Pooh” is a nickname that Derrick Rose’s grandmother gave him. If you are a professional like Petrie claims to be, don’t act like an idiot.

Nike is salty that Rose stayed with Adidas and that is fine, but Rose just torn his ACL. Save it for another day and worry about those sweatshops you got going on. I am sure if we went down the Nike roster we can find many players who have been injured playing in Nike shoes.

You know, kind of like this guy:

Here is the reason why Petrie is a coward:

Petrie was very disrespectful the night before, if you are going to say something say it with your chest. He was talking about Internet thugs and how he doesn’t give a damn, until he became part of the story.

Next time just know your role and shut your mouth, because I am sure Nike has a long list of designers waiting to replace Petrie.

 

This is an older post but I figured I’d bump it back up to the top since it is kind of appropriate after last night’s NFL Draft, round one.

The NFL has kept the Wonderlic results under tighter wraps than usual this year.  Or maybe the media has had enough other things to keep itself occupied.

Regardless, the first eye-opening score has leaked from the 2012 edition of the 50-question Wonderlic test.  Per multiple league sources, LSU cornerback Morris Claiborne, drafted by the Dallas Cowboys  scored a four.

Yes.  A four.  Out of 50.

Six years ago, quarterback Vince Young initially got a six.  Re-scoring of the test bumped it to a seven.  A next-day Mulligan moved it to 13.

Finally, Young has someone at whom he can point and laugh.

The joke, however, continues to be on anyone who thinks that all college athletes are also students.  Plenty of them aren’t.  They’re minor-league football players who have no choice but to wait at least three years until they get a shot at joining the NFL.

How else can anyone explain a person who presumably has found a way to avoid failing out of college getting such a low score on a basic intelligence test?

And that gives rise to a more important question.  What did LSU actually do to keep Claiborne from failing out of school?
