Nobody's Perfect: Jeter VS Johnson
Nobody's Perfect: One thing that sports has in common with politics is that, in order to play with the big boys, you have to have a thick skin.
That's why this week's pick needs no serious cerebral interaction.
The two guys this week in the news for making waves are heartthrob, Derek Jeter, and "butterfingers" Steven Johnson.
If you want to compare which one of these fine gentlemen is worse off this week, it's pretty easy.
In the game last Sunday, Buffalo's Mr. Johnson, fumbled the football just before scoring the winning touchdown, giving the game to Pittsburgh.
And it seems, that wasn't the first fumble of his game. He had about five.
After the game, he tweeted God, blaming him for his mistake.
Many thought his tweet about his fumble was to God, but...it wasn't. It was to Obama. He is tired of making excuses and sticking up for Obama, and I can't blame him. Read his tweet again.
Many black people that voted for Obama feel, betrayed, and who can blame them?
Hope and Change meant that all gas would be free, all bills would be paid, and all passes would be caught. It's been a big letdown for many.
On the other side, Yankee Derek Jeter' s only imperfection is that he had been getting paid too high a salary for much too long, which is really not an imperfection at all.
He is in a fight with the Yankees to renew his contract at $45 million for three years. But the general manager basically has said: You getting old, and not exactly worth it.
So what does this nobody predict?
The Yankees will get rid of him, and the fans will be outraged. He'll go to another town, get the money he wants, and play for a few more years. I've seen it happen too many times in sports.
The men who build the stadiums, usually get traded at the peak of their careers.
Jeter has had a long solid career, and many say he will be back. I don't know. I wouldn't want to piss off New York.
Johnson, on the other hand, shouldn't be blaming God for anything, in fact he should pray that he keep his job.
God...I mean Obama, is taking numbers.
