Holiday Shopping, TMZ Sports & Undefeated Seasons

3-2-1…1-2-3…what the heck…is bothering me?  At least this week.

1) I want customer service with my holiday cheer

Most stores tend to overstaff for the holidays, but not f---in' Best Buy.  Trying to find a sales rep in Best Buy is like going on safari and by time someone gets around to helping you choose which camera or computer has the best features they'll be obsolete.  And when you find one, there is always somebody there trying to jump ahead of you like, "I just have a quick question."  Bullsh*t buddy, I will f---in' cut you with a candy cane.

But at clothing stores there is always someone around to help you.  Even though you didn't f---in' ask for it.  Exactly what are they going to help you with?  This ain't Jenny Jones, I didn't come for a makeover.  I know the style and sizes of the people I'm shopping for or I wouldn't be here jackass!  Now, Victoria Secret is another story.

2) Be careful what you wish for TMZ Sports

Some things go together like peanut butter and jelly, but gossip and sports isn't one of them.  There is a reason you never see hardcore hip-hop heads like 50 Cent, Eminem and Jadakiss on TMZ.  No paparazzi at that devils playground has the balls to harass hood-folks with rude-ass questions, or crowd them when they are with their kids.  They will get knocked the f--- out.

I'd love to see TMZ be obnoxious to Ron Artest, Jared Allen or Rasheed Wallace.  The Mike Tyson incident should have put the kibosh on this idea a month ago.  Plaxico Burress shot himself, you think he'd have any problem shooting paparazzi?  Sh*t, even Tom Brady's people took shots at photograhpers invading his wedding.  Tom-f---in'-Brady...shooting?  You have no chance with Randy Moss.  None.

3) Losing is never good

I don't understand how anyone can say "the New Orleans Saints losing is a good thing" with a straight face.  YOU PLAY TO WIN THE GAME!  The logic that it's better to get the loss out of the way early so you don't lose a game "that matters" implies that there is some universal law that says everybody has to lose at some point.  Bullsh*t.  Just win.

How does losing a game get the monkey off your back?  If I'm wearing a bulletproof vest that stops 13 straight bullets and then one slips through, but doesn't kill me, I'm not thinking, "glad to get that out of the way."  I'm going to be thinking, "holy sh*t my vest doesn't work!"  That sh*t isn't a relief.  I understand that nothing breeds success like failure, but if you never fail...you are successful!

This task is easier to accomplish with individual sports because there is only one person that is involved. When it comes to team sports, it becomes harder to do because of the amount of people that are involved. In football you are counting on 22 people....well it's more than that if you count special teams. Everyone has to be on the same page and that doesn't always happen- so adversity hits and you deal with it and move on.

Perfection can be attained but its going to take good coaching, good players and some luck. When the 1972 Miami Dolphins went undefeated they had all of those ingredients. Shula was hungry because he lost Super Bowl III against the Jets and Joe Namath. His Baltimore Colts were heavily favored. He was then clobbered by Tom Landry's Cowboys in Super Bowl VI. Final Score: Dallas Cowboys 24  Miami Dolphins-3.  All of this adversity was what fueled Shula's fire and passion to win it all. In 1972, he put it all together and went on that magical run to perfection. The Dolphins were the first team to appear in 3 straight Super Bowls and the 2nd team to win back to back Super Bowl Titles. They were a perfect 17-0 after getting clobbered in the Super Bowl the previous year.

The Patriots were 18-0 heading into the Super Bowl against the New York Giants. Records were falling like dominoes- all they had to do was win  the big one and be the first team ever to finish a perfect 19-0. Well it never happened. Why?  I think the media pressure and the fact that the Giants played an inspired game were determining factors in why the chase for 19-0 didn't happen for the Patriots. You also had the whole spygate incident and the media creating a media frenzy with all of the hype that took place before, during and after the game..!!  The Tyre catch might have been luck, divine intervention or karma?  Who knows?  The bottom line is they ended up 18-1 losers. The two other teams that finished 18-1 were Super Bowl Champs- San Francisco 49ers & Chicago Bears. I think if the Pats would have lost in the regular season, they would have been more focused and more determined to win- by playing with more intensity. They came very close to their goal but in the end- it slipped away.

The bullet proof vest analogy you made is based on one individual. Football is not Tennis. You will need 33 bullet proof vests not one- that makes it a little more complicated. Perfection in football is the ultimate accomplishment. The Colts have a shot at it the Saints blew it. It doesn't mean the Saints suck, it just means the media pressure is no longer a factor. They can now concentrate on winning a Super Bowl Title without any added distraction of going 19-0. All the pressure is now on the Colts. I would like to see them do it, so that I can witness this historical occasion. The most important thing though, should be winning another Lombardi trophy....going 19-0 is just icing on the cake.

Losing is never good but perfection is not easily attained either, especially in a team sport. When the competition level is equal and injuries become an issue- then it becomes a little harder to keep those winning ways going. Attitude is only part of the equation..!!

And a big kit kat bar to any human being who took the time to read that.

I'm going to be thinking, "holy sh*t my vest doesn't work!"

Atleast now the Saints have a chance to fix what is wrong with their vest as opposed to running into battle thinking they have an indestructible vest.  (See Patriots o-line v. giants d-line)

Its never a good thing to lose, but i would imagine the saints would rather find out what is wrong with their team in week 15 rather than Super Bowl Sunday

 "holy sh*t my vest doesn't work!"   I love it.  Excellent article, and he has it right on as far as shopping is concerned - WTH is it with clothing stores anyway?  One toe length into the store and 5 clerks are jumping on you wanting to know if they can help you.  Yep, you bet, you just helped me change my mind about shopping here!!
And I don't know about Best Buy, but ANY store that is a specialty store, computers, cameras, etc., you can hear the damn crickets, it's so quiet.

Excellent article, and I agree wholeheartedly.

 I counted the article as an epic win once I saw the Family Matters reference. Awesome. The rest of the article is money as well.
