Well That Sucked…Super Bowl Edition


New segment which may be balanced out by a good news one that could materialize one day when things improve. Someday. One day. Maybe in 2027?

Anyways I’m a die hard Kansas City Chiefs fan. They could change the name and I wouldn’t care. My folks got me a nice new black Chiefs hoodie for Xmas and I settled down into the couch, beer in hand, to watch them play Tampa Bay. My gut told me this wouldn’t end well. Guess what? It was right. A 31-9 ass kicking where Gronk caught two TDs, the Chiefs offense never materialized and Mahomes was running for his life.

In the past, I wouldn’t have taken it very well. The year the Chiefs lost to the Colts in the playoffs I was so mad I almost walked out on my job. I was pissed all day. Then came the Steelers beating KC on field goals in the playoffs and I had what most call an epiphany. This shit doesn’t matter in the grand scheme of things. Also I became dead inside to the Chiefs’ playoff failures.

Yep when they lost to a Titans team actively trying to blow it so they could fire their head coach, I just laughed. Derrick Henry really should thank KC for him being a starter btw. I even thought it was going to happen, yet I picked the Chiefs to win anyways cause I wasn’t sports betting. Thank God I never sports bet although I would have made money betting against KC a lot of the time.

I actually wish I had bet my coworker that the Bucs would win. I could have made some money off of him this weekend. Look sure KC won the Super Bowl last year, yet I know better now. That was an aberration that most likely won’t happen again. It’s nice they made it back to back, yet expecting a third trip in a row goes against history and a legacy of flopping when it counts. I know better.

People thinking the Chiefs will be a dynasty are the same folks who thought that about the Seahawks, the Packers, the Steelers, the Eagles, and so on. The Pats were a dynasty but they got cheap and cute so Brady and Gronk packed up their shit and left. I don’t blame them. That’s how a dynasty ends.

I fully expect Tom Brady to be winning Super Bowls until he’s 50. I wonder if he can win one with an expansion team. You never know. This has been “Well That Sucked.” Have a nice day.

Vince Young, Green Bay, and Awful Predictions


For the record, I actually like Vince Young. Thanks to him USC did not win another national championship. Bully for him. However his pro career has been a disappointment, to say the least, and its sad because Young had the talent to at least be a good pro QB. Maybe even an annual Pro Bowler. His tale is one to heed, for his immaturity and lack of leadership skills have resulted in him going from being a starting quarterback for the Titans to being a backup with the Packers. Let this be a lesson to young players who think that it all it takes to be successful in the pros is talent. Some things go beyond talent, and there are simply other intangibles that make people great at what they do. Particularly in a violent sport such as football. Anyways I do think that Vince Young is not a bad pickup by the Packers, as the rest of the QBs on their roster are awful. If Aaron Rodgers goes down, Young could probably step in and play right away. So welcome to the Packers, Young, and get used to an organization that’s all about winning championships. It might be your last stop if you are not careful, but I do wish you the best of luck.
