What?! Daunte Culpepper Retires From the NFL?

Posted in Blogroll on September 4th, 2008 by Michael Tillery

Daunte Culpepper has retired from the NFL.

Shocked but not surprised. How the hell can a 31 year old top flight qb suddenly say forget it and hang ’em up after an illustrious 9 year career?

Why wasn’t he given a fair shake? His knee? Check. His arm? Check.

How is this guy running free when cats like Chad Pennington and Joey Harrington are still employed?

Oh, could it possibly be Daunte doesn’t have an agent?

Possibly, but this has to be something deeper than that. Wasn’t it 2004 when he had one of the greatest seasons in NFL history when he threw for 39 tds and 4,717 yards?

So…yeah his knee explodes in 2005 and a mere three years later he’s out of the league?

Kwame Kilpatrick Resigns As Detroit Mayor After Pleading Guilty to Two Counts of Perjury

Posted in Blogroll on September 4th, 2008 by Michael Tillery

Kwame Kilpatrick, the youngest mayor in Detroit, Michigan history, resigned from office (effective in two weeks) after pleading guilty to two felony obstruction of justice (perjury) charges. He admitted to lying during a case where two former police officers brought suit against the city after claiming they were disciplined for investigating wrongdoing in Kilpatrick’s office. As a result, Detroit had to pay 8.4 million to settle a case brought to light after the Detroit Free Press obtained text messages evidencing Kilpatrick’s guilt.

As part of the agreement, Kilpatrick is ordered to spend 120 days in jail, pay the city 1 million dollars in restitution, surrender his law license and agreed not to run for public office while he’s on 5 years probation. He will enter jail when he is sentenced on October 28th.

Sarah Palin: The Pitbull With Lipstick

Posted in Blogroll on September 4th, 2008 by Michael Tillery

So did you catch the good ole boy meeting last night headed by the community organizer? Crazy huh? Sarah Palin’s acceptance speech was exactly what I thought it was going to be–a bunch of Obama tax plan distortions while making a obvious yet obtuse connection to middle America. Her speech was scripted to make Barack Obama look like an egotistical elitist while appealing to a gender based ideology. The self described hockey mom last night became a “pitbull with lipstick” and slammed Barack Obama at every turn. Did you see the look on the faces of the women in attendance? This was their Barack Obama DNC moment which played out in an arena the Republicans couldn’t fill.
