Hanna’s Hotties and Notties: “The Clash of the Titans”

Players vs. Cheerleaders

Being a Tennessee gal with an avid love for football and for my team, the Titans, I can’t go much longer without  pointing out the total Nottieness of our so-called football team this year. And while it pains me to do this, our pathetic band of so-called athletes must be called out. This is a team that has been repeatedly run-over, run-down, and pushed around by their opponents, and the pathetic thing is, they don’t even seem to care. I mean, just last year the Titans won 12 games in a row!!! So, I have to ask, what the HELL happened? 

Here’s what makes me really mad, lets talk about how much money is being spent on these losers players, starting with the leader of the pack,  QB extroadinaire, Kerry Collins. This miracle worker (for the other teams) gets paid $2 million a year to throw the ball to the other team…8 times. The turnover ratio is -10. I already need duct tape to keep my head attached, and I’m just getting started.

The miserable cornerback and hothead, Finnegan makes almost $7 mill and next to the QB, the Titan’s pass defense has to the most embarrassing part of the Titan’s team.

Vince Young, by far the priciest makes well over $7 million big ones to…sit on the bench.

Crumpler is at over $2, Justin Gage, almost $6, Jevon Kearse is sitting pretty at $3 million. You get the picture. Now in my mind, these guys seem to be making plenty of money, enough to motivate them (I would think) to want to get out there on Sunday, one damn day a week, and at least attempt to play hard. Wow, what a notion. But this year at least, apparently not. Now they may as well lose the rest of their games just to get some good draft picks (calling Tim Tebow) and just start over. It’s so bad, that Coach Jeff Fisher is TRYING to get fired. Titans, until you start playing with some heart or playing at all, you will sadly, remain Notties in my playbook.

On the other hand, the Cheerleaders always look insanely hot and could probably punt, pass, kick, and throw better than any of the pansies on the Titan’s roster this year. Gals, keep the hotness up, someone has to make this team look good.

Michael Wilbon vs. Steven A Smith

Friday afternoon, I was watching PTI on ESPN and noticed that Limbaugh was an upcoming topic. Kornheiser and Wilbon were discussing whether black football players would play for Rush Limbaugh if he were to become part owner of the St. Louis Rams.  And to my shock, Michael Wilbon (who I normally like) ripped into Rush Limbaugh, accusing him of being racist.

“‘I don’t know whether Rush Limbaugh is a straight-up bigot, or if he simply plays one on TV and radio, but he is universally reviled by black people in this country and justifiably so based on his public pronouncements, constantly saying things that are offensive.  I’m just going to mention one.  He referred to the NFL by the way, in terms of the Bloods vs. Crips without the weapons and another point he said ‘Slavery’ and this is in context, ‘had its merits’ and he joked, I guess he joked, ‘the streets were safer after dark.’”

Excuse me, Mr. Wilbon, but you are supposed to be a journalist, so you should check your facts before you go and blab your mouth. If you had, you would know that the blood and crips comment was taken out of context and Rush never  made a joke about “slavery” or its “merits.”  Accusing a man of racism without the actual facts is so not cool. Stop getting all your information from The Daily Kos or Media Matters, listen to Rush yourself before you pass judgement; and do your job as a journalist Mr. Wilbon, you Nottie.

On the other hand you have another sports commentator, Steven A. Smith, who defends Rush Limbaugh and  the fact that he wants to purchase a team.

Of course these football prima donnas would play for Rush. Steven A. nails it; they care about the almighty dollar, period. And for standing up for Rush’s right to purchase a team, whether you agree with his politics or not, makes you, Mr. Smith, a total hottie!


Hanna’s Hotties and Notties

September 4, 2009


With the start of the football season just around the corner I had  to choose my first official Hottie and Nottie from the manly, sweaty, chiseled realm of the football gods. So who better than notorious dog killer Michael Vick and Wrangler wearing quarterback Brett Favre? So lets start with Mr. Vick.

Yes, he did engage in dog fighting and yes it was terrible and inhumane. But Michael Vick has paid his debt to society and has since returned a much more humble and I believe introspective man. It was this press conference that changed my mind about Vick:

After watching it, I did forgive him, and  I do welcome him back.  Hell,  I even want him to do well. I am a person that believes in second chances.  And besides, it’s not like he murdered anyone (ahem, Donte Stallworth). So for those reasons Michael Vick, you are Hanna’s Hottie of the week.

On the Not-so-hottie or Nottie side,  there’s Brett Favre, who by any physical means is clearly a “hottie” and would have remained a “hottie” in my book forever… had he not decided to come back from retirement, again. And not only did he re-unretire himself, again, he came back to play for the Packers most dreaded nemesis – The Minnesota Vikings!  Brett, how could you? Why couldn’t you have just retired a hero? I know you may not want to hear it, but you’re old in football years. Just think, you could be sitting on your porch in Mississippi with your sweet gals by your side, or playing football in the mud, or drinking a Bud Light with the guys. But nooooo, you just couldn’t stay away and for that reason,  you, Brett Favre are my Nottie.

Until next time…
