Embarrassment

In my everyday life I could fall upwards to five times, and it is quite embarrassing. One instance I can remember is when I went to Montgomery, Alabama. I was walking along the river on one of those raised ledges, thinking everything was fine. It was not fine, I fell off, and now I have a lasting scar. I did not cry and it barely hurt, I was more embarrassed than anything. Everyone who was on that river that day saw me and kept coming up to me to see if I was okay… I did not like the attention.

Another embarrassing moment is everytime I see a person I know in public. I do not like talking to people and I know that if I see someone I know, they’ll come up to me to talk. I do talk to them because I don’t like being rude, but I am worried that I am going to say or do something weird.

The Making of the Chip Kelly Era

Obviously, as a huge NFL fan, I would love to cover the games that happened today. However, I believe that since we have a full two weeks before any meaningful NFL action, that can all wait until next week sometime. I have wanted to publicly address Chip Kelly, the new Philadelphia Eagles’ head coach for a few days and never got the chance.

So, here goes.

As the reports had shown two weeks ago, Chip Kelly, then the head coach of the University of Oregon, had decided to decline the jump to the NFL and stay in college. 10 days later, Chip was hired as the Eagles coach. I was ecstatic to say the least. He was my pick to replace Andy Reid since day 1 of interviews. I wanted him even while we still had Andy on the payroll.

I strongly believe in this man as our head coach in Philly. He has so far built a very reasonable staff chock full of NFL experience, including our new offensive coordinator and former Browns’ head coach Pat Shurmur.

While a lot of skeptics don’t particularly care much about the signing, I love the move.

Shurmur is a former Eagles QB coach and very skilled in the West Coast offensive formations, meaning that Chip, who brings the run and spread options to the NFL, is willing to compromise and is open to many different mentalities. I also like the fact that we now have two head coaches on our staff. Chip and Pat both have that type of experience.

I will be talking about a certain theory I have in the upcoming week. It pertains to Alabama coach Nick Saban and DC Kirby Smart, who is a leading candidate in the Eagles’ DC search.

Keep on reading! I’m very close to something huge!

And we’re back/Worst Person #9-LSU

How ya been, readers? I’ve been trying to figure out how long it’s been since I’ve last expressed my extreme disappointment in the wide world of sports. So without further ado, I bring you a new installment in the worst person in Sports.

It’s not just one person. This team is a disgrace following last night’s BCS championship game between Alabama and LSU. The final score was 21-0 in favor of Alabama. Many people blame Les Miles, coach of LSU for not substituting his quarterback Jordan Jefferson for backup Jarrett Lee.

Honestly, who cares?

If you can’t throw the ball, then run the ball. This team was ranked number 1 in the country and couldn’t score against a team that they beat earlier in the season 9-6. Once again, the defense for both sides was stellar. But, only one offense really came to play, and only one touchdown was scored throughout the whole contest.

That’s right, 5 field goals and one touchdown and a missed extra point.

LSU could not stop Alabama from getting into field goal range. To be honest, as a player, I have no sympathy for their deplorable offensive attack, or lack there of. The team needs to really re-evaluate. But, maybe it’s time to re-recruit. Both Jefferson and Lee are leaving the school because they’re seniors. This might be it until LSU can find a new starting quarterback.

Also, for my next worst person, I’m adding a special surprise for the readers. Enjoy!
