READY FOR SOME MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL
Welcome back!The NFL returns to New Orleans
New Orleans 23 Atlanta 3
Crowds swamped the area around the Louisiana Superdome in a human sea, creating a huge traffic jam for the team's emotional return and the reopening of the stadium, which underwent $185 million in repairs to erase damage done during and after Katrina. "This is exactly what the city needs," said Saints season ticket holder Clara Donate, 58, who lost her home and all her possessions to Katrina's floodwaters.
Ready for some football????? WTF how about the blatant attempt at spoon feeding, no wait shoving how much this game meant to the people of New Orleans? When the Falcons win here in Atlanta, we as residents don’t get a damn check in the mail, so this was a victory for the Saints, Players, and Owners and those who own business in the French Quarter(which I heard 50 times at least in the telecast is back to normal) 5th or 9th ward winning anything last night? Nice touch U2 and Green Day two bands who probably between them have know idea what a forward pass is in football. Should have let Mos Def hit the stage and perform Katrina Klap:
It’s dollar day in New Orleans,
It’s where water everywhere and baby’s dead in the stree (ee eets),
It’s enough to make you holler out,
Like where the fuck is Sir Bono and his famous friends now,
Don’t get it twisted man I dig U2,
But if you aint about the ghetto, Then Fuck You Too,
Who care bout Rock N’ Roll when babies can’t eat food,
Listen homie that shit ain’t cool,
It’s like dollar day for New Orleans,
It’s where the water everywhere and homies dead in the stree (ee eets),
And Mr. President’s a natural ass,
He out treatin’ bruthas worse than they treat the trash,
God save these streets,
One dollar per every human being,
Feel that Katrina Clap!
See that Katrina Clap!
God save these streets,
Quit bein’ cheap brutha freedom ain’t free!
Feel that Katrina Clap!
See that Katrina Clap,
USA 7 WAR on Terror 0
Hey but the fun dosen't stop there right, those NFL executives no how to pump a cause right? even if facts show otherwise, let's examine Pat Tillman former Arizonal Cardinal DB. the Arizona Cardinals defensive back who famously volunteered for the Army in the spring after 9/11, giving up a $3.6 million N.F.L. contract extension. Tillman wanted to pay something back to his country by pursuing the enemy that actually attacked it, Osama bin Laden and Al Qaeda. Instead he was sent to fight a war in Iraq that he didn't see coming when he enlisted because the administration was still hatching it in secret. Only on a second tour of duty was he finally sent into Taliban strongholds in Afghanistan, where, on April 22, 2004, he was killed. On April 30, an official Army press release announcing his Silver Star citation filled in vivid details of his last battle. Tillman, it said, was storming a hill to take out the enemy, even as he "personally provided suppressive fire with an M-249 Squad Automatic Weapon machine gun."
Pat Tillman's case is itself a replay of the fake "Rambo" escapades ascribed to Pfc. Jessica Lynch a year earlier, just when Operation Iraqi Freedom showed the first tentative signs of trouble and the Pentagon needed a feel-good distraction. As if to echo Mary Tillman, Ms. Lynch told Time magazine this year, "I was used as a symbol." But the troops aren't just used as symbols for the commander in chief's political purposes. They are also drafted to serve as photo-op props and extras, whether in an extravaganza like "Mission Accomplished" or a throwaway dog-and-pony show like the recent teleconference in which the president held a "conversation" with soldiers who sounded as spontaneous as the brainwashed G.I.'s in "The Manchurian Candidate".
Strike up the half time performance provided by The Goats.
The Goats titled "Typical American", although recorded and released when Daddy Bush was president the last verse has a very haunting prophecy feel to it and rings so true today.Reviewed by many to be one of the best hip-hop bands of all time.
Picked as one of the top forty albums made in Philadelphia ever!
Featuring live instrumentation and three of the rawest vocalists in hip hop.
Sadly, the albums “Tricks of the Shade” and “No Goats, No Glory” are no longer available anywhere outside of getting lucky in some used record store.
Military is a mockery for all to see
Be all you be is just another trick that's up their sleeves
But ya better believe that you'll be grieving when ya ain't receiving
What was promised don't be atonished cause ya won't be leaven
They reeled ya in like your skin had fins
Now you're poundin' sand for another man's sins
To each his own to each his own they say
But I'm gonna blow a bone and you can march 'til the cows come home
You likes alone and me direct your own ???
But when you come home in a box
Green draws, green pants, green socks
Typical American kid, I think not
I'm not your typical Amerikkkan I'm not your typical Amerikkkan
