Real Men of Genius

Anyone who bore witness to Saturday's ND-Stanford game got to live through the excruciating ordeal known as "Listening to Keith Jackson". I feel sorry for you, but there's nothing we can do. Our conventional weapons cannot kill him. Keith is the biggest blowhard, the most doddering idiot, the most biased a-hole known to sportscasting. His voice is obnoxious, he forgets where he is about half a dozen times per game, and, at this point in his career, does not have any right to be in a broadcast booth. Of course, we can't hate a player. Somebody who continues to make a living as a sportscaster despite being desperately unable to complete the job is, in the House Rock Built's estimation, a true champion of the American Dream. Good on him, we say. In fact, we salute you, Keith Jackson.

A tribute to Keith Jackson, real man of genius

Furthermore, who is this freakin' dink in the Stanford band? God knows, we love Homestar Runner as much as the next person, but seriously, get a life. The jumbles, man! Just the jumbles!

Nuff Said.

For posterity, from today's presser:

Q. At the end of the Stanford game they had the long pass play and you and Steve had one at the end of that game. I think both times the announcers said maybe they would have been better off letting the guys score to give the offense more time.

COACH Charlie Weis: Give me a break. Those are announcers that know everything, right? That's why they're announcers. Give me a break. I mean, let's talk about it.

First of all, we had three timeouts left. There's over a minute and 55 seconds to go. They run the ball three times and don't go in, we call time out, time out, time out, we still are going to have a minute and 30 to go regardless of whether they score or don't score. They have no timeouts left so if they don't score we kneel on it and the game is over. So for those brilliant guys, they missed on that one.

Why are you questioning Strong Bad when the guy on his left has Chairman Mao?

Well, I'm pretty sure none of them will ever reproduce.
