Curses! People Losing Control On TV

posted by mattaug

What was it about the past week or so on television?

About a week and a half ago political pundit Bob Beckel lost his cool and yelled out “That’s B.S.!” (the full word) on the FOX News show The Five.

If anyone was watching, of course.

I am joking, sort of, though I enjoy politics but am not a regular viewer of that particular roundtable. Beckel is a jocular sort of fellow though and even states his admiration for Newt Gingrich … so I can appreciate that, especially coming from a Democratic operative.

Beckel wasn’t the only one to flip his lid, though, as famous lid-wearer/ESPN analyst Lee Corso used the ‘F’ word in discussing his excitement of something about college football.

Corso deserves a bit of a knock, not such much for that error but for his Hooters ad in which he praises the restaurant’s, ahem, talent … with a literal wink to a waitress.

Kinda creepy Corso.

Rex Ryan

Another offender is not a big surprise in New York Jets coach Rex “Look at Me” Ryan.

If you want that kind of attention Rex you have to be willing to constantly hold your tongue.

Or be willing to face a hefty fine from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, who frowns on cursing at a fan, which Ryan did a week ago after the Jets loss to the New England Patriots.

Shape up guys … you can’t behave that way on television and get away with it.

At least not yet.

Missing Sammy Davis Jr., Twinkies
I just noticed that the late, great Sammy Davis Jr's birthday, Dec. 8, came and went over the weekend. I miss the talented man, who broke down racial barriers through high great singing, dancing and even acting skills. Yes, even the latter, as judged by his appearance on the TV classic "All in

I'm a strange 'cat', I'll admit it. Just ab0ut completely broke all the time, yet I am as conservative as the day is long. And I always will be. In a similar way, I have always been among the working middle class, or poor, lol, but tend to see things in the owner's point of view in many res
