Well Amigos as you might expect The Red Man has avoided wading into the Michael Mess, but tonight he gives up the fight.
Michael Sam is the notorious homosexual who dares to play football with the Real Men of the NFL – nervous men who are trying to figure out how to act around him in a smelly locker room as if anyone cares because they should be so tired from football practice that they collapse on the benches and should not be worried about a gay recruitment attempt from Michael Sam who is also so tired the last thing on his mind is whether he’s gay or straight.
And then along comes Oprah who wants to make a reality TV show called the Untitled Michael Sam Project which would follow the experiences of the first openly gay man to be drafted in an NFL draft. Ever. Historical. Jackie Robinson-like. Word to Oprah: This is not a catchy title for a reality TV show. And the NFL wasn’t buying it. They passed. Heh, heh, my little football joke for the night.
So Michael Sam won’t have an Oprah show, but he will have a chance to play football for the St. Louis Rams. The Red Man hopes he makes the team.
Meanwhile over in Pennsylvania a United States District Judge appointed by Dubya ruled today that the same-sex marriage ban in the state was unconstitutional. That makes the 10th. state this year to take a step forward for equality and justice and it’s only May.
Needless to say, the lesbians at Casa de Canterbury were high-fiving it and agreed it makes a great birthday present for Pretty – who is another year older tomorrow.
Michael, Oprah, Marriage. As the old woman Slow is fond of saying, What a country.
Get me outta here Percy – I’ve got a birthday party to plan. Happy Birthday, Pretty!
Happy birthday to Pretty! Glad it follows some celebrating at the Casa.
Lots to celebrate at Casa de Canterbury for Pretty and Slow! Number One Son got engaged to Pretty Two over the weekend so happiness is apaw in South Carolina…:)
Congrats to the whole family!
Thanks so much Luanne – the whole family is very happy!! 🙂
Sending best wishes from down on the bayou to Pretty for the happiest of happy birthdays! And congratulations on Number One Son’s engagement! All of that excitement plus the court rulings plus the #1 NFL draft pick . . . wow, just wow! And, the Gamecocks are sitting pretty for the SEC baseball tourney. We may have to come to South Carolina to scrape everyone off the ceiling. 😉
Wow is right, Miss Harper Lee!! The old woman Slow ordered not 1, not 2, but THREE bottles of bubbly to be chilled and ready for Pretty’s Party tonight! Wish you and your Mommy and Daddy were here to help us celebrate – however, I do think we’ll have to rely on pictures. 😦 Not hopeful for Gamecocks in baseball this year. LSU still rocking?? 🙂
The conceit of his fellow players! Happy Birthday Pretty 😀
All that macho man talk in sports locker rooms! Just like in corporate board rooms, I imagine…:) Tamper down the testosterone, guys. Pretty had a great birthday – complete with lots of bubbly!! Thanks so much!!
Happy Birthday Pretty, hope it was a great one this past Wednesday, we will all be thinking about you today, for we missed knowing that it was the 21st, but today is still a mighty fine day to remember our cousin, such a precious person. We love , from all here in Texas…
Hello Church Organist,
The Red Man will pass along the good wishes from her cousins-in-laws in Grimes County. She will be happy to have good wishes any day!
All of us at Casa de Canterbury wish all of you a fabulous Memorial Day Weekend – stay safe…:)
Well Red, it took your Poppy forever and a day to whip Ma into shape and get her over to your blog. How high does a pup have to bounce to get some attention?! Now I see we missed Pretty’s birthday, passed on ( 😉 ) a really good joke, and a chance to join in the “One more down, 38 to go gay marriage ban extravaganza.” We are so happy in Pennsylvania, and are hoping more states get moving to legalize a basic right all folks should share.
Give Miss Pretty our very special, if belated, love. She looks gorgeous in that photo!!!
Love and sloppy Poppy kisses,
Pops, Cassie P, and a very lazy, but contrite, Ma
Greetings O Wise Ones in Pennsylvania,
Yes, it is sometimes difficult to get our moms in motion and very aggravating when they refuse to keep up with correspondence! At least, she rose to the occasion, albeit somewhat reluctantly and with a great deal of contrition. So be thankful for small favors!! Otherwise, you will appear to be a malcontent, which of course we know is the least likely position for you to hold!!
we are grateful that you bother to stop by regardless and are hoping that all of you girls are having a decent Memorial Day weekend!
Your most favorite dog who adores you,
The Red Man
I don’t dislike O, but not everything is an exclusive for her network. Just let him play football like he wants. I don’t think there should be a reality show, they are so typically sleazy anyway, I don’t think he needs to start off a football career attached to some silly show that mostly benefits her. It’s not like Lohans show revived her career.
Thank yew very much, PLGCM! I have yet to ever watch the first reality TV show, and I wouldn’t have started with Michael Sam – let him play football!! The guy deserves a chance…thanks for chiming in!! 🙂
