Football FAIL–A Rant November 21, 2010Posted by Skippy in Rants, Sports.
Ok, children, time for one of my ever-so-rare blogs about sports.
So, I’m watching the Tennessee Titans/Washington Redskins game. The teams played very well, resulting in a 16-16 tie to end regulation and force an overtime situation. The Titans win the coin toss and are, for some reason, unable to get into field goal range and get this shit over with. Anyway, the Redskins get the ball back and wind up in a third down with twenty-two yards to go. Things are looking up…until after the play, when a FUCKING IDIOT named Jason Babin goes and knocks the helmet off of a Redskin player.
Are you fucking kidding me? Seriously? I’d expect that kind of foolish, IDIOTIC behavior from a rookie. But Babin’s been in the game for seven frakkin’ years! And you do that in an overtime situation? When you’ve already got the opponent on their heels and can get the ball back and win the frakkin’ game? What, did he think the refs would hand him the keys to the city and the game ball? What the hell? I’m used to seeing that kind of foolishness come from a team that’s losing and has a great deal riding on the game. But this? When I saw that I said to myself, “Well. They just lost the game.” They gave the Redskins a new set of downs and enabled them to get in field goal range and yadda yadda, game over, Titans lose.
