TunaBowl I

The big wet gossipy scandal is all about Chastity Bono’s decision to undergo a sex change operation.  She wants to be a man, something her wingnut father never managed.  Remember his tearful performance on the floor of the US House of Representatives, declining to support a gay rights bill despite his self-proclaimed love ands respect for Bawney Fwank?

Former Senator Larry Craig sent congratulations.  “See you in the Minneapolis airport men’s room,” he wrote.  “We’re Republicans!  Big tent, wide stance!”

In other useless news:

Zero Tolerance Entertainment, which markets adult videos, claims it has pitched the Houston Texans to place an ad on the team’s practice jerseys, PFT reports.  The NFL approved teams selling ad space on their practice jerseys at its March meetings. Several teams have considered the idea, but Zero Tolerance would represent the most unusual suitor thus far.

PFT cited a press release from Zero Tolerance saying the company offered “several zeroes” in its offer to the Texans. The team hasn’t confirmed the offer, and whether Houston would consider making a deal with an adult entertainment company is unknown.

“Every team in the league starts the season by saying, that they’ll have Zero Tolerance for losing,” the company said.  “While our offer may not be taken seriously, there is some undeniable synergy between the NFL and the name of our company.” — USA Today.com

footballI can’t imagine why Zero Tolerance Entertainment thinks its offer might not be taken seriously.   Who on earth could object to the NFL, which was corporately mortified (read: stricken by the thought of losing sponsorship dollars) by that famous SuperBowl “wardrobe malfunction,” linking itself to pornography?  Isn’t Sex the natural third element of football’s winning formula, along with Beer and Violence?

Go for it, lads!  It’s all about scoring, you know.

    I heard this on the Jim Rome Show yesterday, and I bet you did, too!

    Great marketing idea, with zero chance of being taken seriously. But as Rome said, it got them some airplay, like his show. That’s like 4 million people. And your blog. So that’s like 4 million and 3, assuming Guido’s still reading it, too.

    Remember how Sonny finally died? It was a fatal ski accident: he went off the trail and slammed into a tree. That was another time he moved a little too far to the right.
