Why stop at Heisman? Matt Barkley For President

Post by THe Nug »

I wasn't sure whether to post this in High school, college or the political section. Wiley willing, I put it in the right place.

Norman Chad of SI must be on drugs. Cha Please!

His name is Matt Barkley. He is a true freshman -- I've never been quite sure what a "true freshman" is but I figure it's better than a "fallacious sophomore" -- and he is the starting quarterback at USC. He just turned 19 last week, but he has the maturity of a 20- or 21-year-old.

Tebow was the first sophomore to win the Heisman; no freshman has ever won it. Barkley will.

He's had a private quarterback tutor longer than Paris Hilton has had a personal shopping assistant. He looks spectacular -- golden hair, big smile -- and he plays spectacularly. On Saturday, he led a game-winning 14-play, 86-yard drive at Ohio State, and I am backing him though I despise Southern Cal.

Southern Cal not only produces Heisman quarterbacks (Carson Palmer, Matt Leinart), even its backup quarterbacks (Matt Cassel) become NFL starters. So if you're the starting quarterback at the nation's top football program, aren't you the best player in the land?

(As most of you know, only quarterbacks and running backs get serious Heisman consideration. Interior linemen don't count; they're cows grazing on the side of the road.)

In addition, Barkley does volunteer work, plays guitar with a church youth group and went to South Africa last Christmas to help run an orphanage.

Heck, why stop at the Heisman? This kid could be president someday.

Naw....he thanked God about six times in his after the game interview. That's just damned spooky.

Glad you noticed that too. He didn't even thank Joe McKnight once.

Joe McKnight is God. How strange and spooky that Tebow, Bradford and McCoy are also Christians.

Really... McKnight is God? I was under the impression Tebow is Jesus. I don't see the resemblance.

p.s. No wonder the Holy Grail is in such bad condition. Much like the pigskin McKnight/God must drop the thing every chance he gets.

Being a Christian is one thing..invoking the deity in a post game interview several times is always a little spooky.....where was HE when the defensive dude punked Barkley's shoulder?

So how does Pete Carroll fit into all this superstition?

He's Peter the Apostle of course. He's the rock upon which the church (USC) would be built.

Now that ParrotPaul has once again hijacked a thread on the high school forum, I've asked JQP to move this ill-placed thread to the Religion and Spirituality forum. GOODave can jump in and deal with the monkeys.

Yeah...well...it's probably better off in the "superstitions that wow the masses" forum....the OC masses.

Nota bene...one doesn't hijack a NUG thread...one sweetens the mix and hopes the blend expands and ripens.

This is very true
THe Nug considers this a sign of respect....

Imbibing is spiritual.

Would it make you "feel" better if he thanked Satan? Would it make you feel better if he thanked Obama? What do you care who he thanks. You are one petty old man.

There you go. 2 sentences.

True. Parrot is an atheist non-believer that tries to fit in. The only thing that is just damned spooky, is some over the hill old fart trying to put down a 19 year old kid. Go change your Depends old man.

Sorry, ball buster, I like Matt Barkley the football player...but Matt Barkley the interviewee sucks...did HE also cause the shoulder injury? HE must favor Corp...what does that tell you about HIM? Maybe the dude who posted that stuff to the Wittenburg church door knew something the papists didn't.....you never know.

Oh, and Skull...bite me. :mrgreen:
