Where O Where will Dick Cheney Be?

Posted by Ryan on August 5, 2008

Word is buzzing that Dick Cheney may not be invited to speak at the Republican National Convention.  A sitting two-term Vice President has never been snubbed by the incumbent party’s convention that I can think of in modern times.  I know that if Cheney doesn’t go it’ll be spun as his “choice” to help McCain, but McCain’s people are probably spearheading the effort to snub him — McCain’s camp has not seemed to care about Conservative sympathies anyway.

Regardless, I know the McCain people are iffy about having the divisive liberal lightning rod, Dick Cheney, speak at the Convention, but c’mon! 

I suggest giving Cheney a spot introducing McCain on September 4!  I mean, no one is going to watch McCain’s acceptance speech since most Americans watching TV that night will catch the opening game of the 2008 NFL season as division rivals Washington Redskins play the Super Bowl Champion New York Giants instead! 

At this rate, I may be watching football too.

Michael Strahan Goes Out On Top

Posted by Ryan on June 9, 2008

Famous New York Giants Defensive End Michael Strahan decided to retire after fifteen straight seasons, seven of which were Pro Bowl seasons.  After winning his first Super Bowl title after being an important part of the Giant’s victory over the New England Patriots.

I liked Michael Strahan.  He was a great player and had a sense of humor that translated well to advertising and public relations.  He was one of the few high-profile members of NY Giants who I actually liked.  Plus, like John Elway, he’s decided to retire while on top, not after a series of failed seasons.  Ultimately, if you can do it, this way is the better way to go.

Cheaters Never Win: New York Giants Win Super Bowl XLII

Posted by Mike on February 3, 2008

This New York Jets fan is proud to congratulate the New York Giants for winning Super Bowl XLII 17-14 over the New England Patriots Cheaters and removing the stain that tarnished this season and threatened to remain on the record books forever.

By stopping the Patriots, the Giants showed that although cheating can seemingly give one an upper hand, bring short-term success, and even make the guilty seem unstoppable, at the end of the day, cheaters never win. Thanks to the Giants, we can now say that the best team in football actually earned it, the 1972 Miami Dolphins do not have to share their place in history with a pack of cheaters, and those who play by the rules accomplish far more than those whose cheat ever could, even if they do get away with it on occasion.

Congratulations to the G-Men and their fans. Tonight, the Giants won on behalf of all those who came before them who wouldn’t even think of doing what the Patriots had the nerve to do. That kind of victory is even more impressive than winning a football game, even the biggest game of the year on the grandest stage of them all. Well done!
