Curse you, Emmitt Smith

My wife, Marcia, and I started watching the Dancing with the Stars show weeks ago. Much like American Idol it quickly became a mainstay in our house. I never expected Emmitt Smith to win the whole thing but there you go. This cartoon kind of came out of the blue. I was in the midst of thinking about an O.J. cartoon when it popped in. Don't ever ask me exactly where the ideas come from because there was absolutely no reason for those two subjects to cross-pollinate but somehow they did. This is the result. I'll save the O.J. cartoon for later and instead print this one now, on Saturday, because it's a little more reader friendly and because the Emmitt phenomenon won't last as long as the O.J. one. Which kind of makes you sick doesn't it. But then O.J. always makes me sick.

I can relate to a cartoon like this. I dance much more like Jerry Springer than Emmitt Smith.

    Not that it has anything to do with this cartoon, but I do wonder something.....With the league changing the time of the Broncos/Chargers game at Invesco to the primetime slot, does the NFL now owe the Chargers the primetime slot when both teams play at San Diego? One would think that would only be fair. The Broncos were, in effect, given an additional edge because the home crowd gets a chance to become more pumped up due the nature of a national broadcast. And also because now the Chargers will be getting home much later than if the schedule would have remained the same. Fair is fair, I would think.

    P.S. It's halftime, and Jake looks horrible as usual. I guess he won't get pulled tonight after all. My prediction was apparently wrong, and well....fine....but he looks godawful.
