Please tell me who thought of Thursday Night Football.
You know what makes me sick? You know what makes me so mad – I just wanna flick Clay Matthews in the nose with my finger… and run like hell?
With all the crap going on in the world right now… with your terrorism… and your Ebola… and your hoards of drooling illegal kids sneaking in the country… you know what’s got me struggling right now?
Thursday Night Football
You know what’s throwing me off? Thursday Night Football. Who in their cotton-picking, idiot stupid mind came up with this?
To me – Thursday Night Football seems a little bit like Tuesday Night Church. Number one – it does not seem right – on a spiritual level. And number two – you’re probably gonna forget about it anyway.
Plus – you can get a little confused. Last Saturday – my buddy, Dub Meeker goes… ‘Did you catch that game Thursday night?’ And for just a moment there – I thought I missed Thanksgiving. Because if it’s Thursday… and there’s football on the TV – there better be a turkey on the table and a bunch of useless relatives on your couch.
And here’s the best part. I don’t like Thursday Night Football. You know who else don’t like Thursday night football? The NFL players. That’s right. They’re complaining. They say the league is putting them at risk for injury… and the NFL is greedy and just looking for a way to make more money.
First off – calling the NFL ‘greedy’… is like calling Congress ‘stupid’. Some things are a given. But thank you anyway – Dick Tracy. Let me tell you something… Roger Goodell would squeeze cheerleaders to death – if he thought gold coins would shoot out of their butts when he did it.
And then of course – he’d have something to program on Wednesday nights.
Wake up, America!!! Friday night high school. Saturday College. Sunday and Monday the pros. I like to watch trick plays – not trick schedules. Plus – they usually got crap teams playing Thursday night, anyway. I’m Earl Pitts, American – check out my YouTube Channel. And Pitts Off.
