This day on Twitter!

So a week or so ago, Black Monday, we lost to the Queens on MNF. A day or two after that Bernard Berrian, otherwise known on Twitter as B_Twice commented, what a great weekend for Minnesota sports! Cuz of the Twins and all that shit. Anyways! When I saw that I tweeted at him saying "At least we kept the axe you son of a bitch" and to my surprise he actually responded by saying something to the effect of "I ain't no son of a bitch, I'm the son of a lovely woman". Well because of that I decided to follow him on Twitter, figuring if you can get a fish to nibble once I might be able to land it later on. My biggest plan for Twitter is to get into an epic argument with someone that has some sort of celebrity status and gain some notoriety and exposure for our blog that has 3 regular readers, all of whom are probably also authors for said blog.

Anywho, today he tweets the following, "Just saw a hockey highlight and saw the teams name is the devils. Wow!! How many of u could play for a team with the name the Devils?".

Let that sink in for a minute. This guy is bitching about the word Devils? Really? Sure it's easy for you to put out fake morals and ethics about a word when you are already, for the most part undeservedly, receiving millions of dollars, but then you have the audacity to ask others if they could ever play for that team? Throwing out a hypothetical question to elicit a conditioned response from the masses of people who follow you, just so that they will agree with you and you can all nod your head at the same time for the same reason. The Jersey Devil is a mythical creature, which is what the New Jersey Devils were named after, they are not doing it to promote Satanic rituals or some other crazy shit.

And here's a fact for you Bernard, the answer to your question is, everyone! Everyone who is making less money than whatever they would make if they were good enough to play for the New Jersey Devils, because ethical and moral clarity is a fun trait to have when dealing with hypothetical questions, but when the hypothetical becomes reality you can bet your ass 99.99999% of the people who said no would flip their answer in a heartbeat. Especially with something as trivial as a stupid name derived from a mythical creature which has nothing to do with your "Sun revolves around the Earth" religion.

I'm not sure why that pissed me off so much or why I even bothered to write this out, probably because he's a member of the Queens. Man I really hate the Queens...

I bet it is because he is not smart. And that it was an idiotic comment.

Also, I hate the Queens.

Also, thanks for finding a use for my tag

The Jersey Devil is mythical, but Satan as referenced in the non-fiction book called "The Holy Bible" is real... pick it up at your local bookstore... some, most, would say that you are the moron...

Jesus is magic

When did I ever say the devil that Berrian was talking about was mythical? Also I fucking hate you Bizarro

As a fellow packer fan, I love the blog. Keep in mind that berrian was a goddamn bear before becoming a douchebag viking. I can't wait for that Nov 1st game, I plan on getting to my seat early and booing the entire game.

And I thought the Holy Bible was a fiction book, dammit...

Bear said...

I was gonna say something else, but then I realized I don't want to talk about religion and that's where my hatred of Bizarro comes from, he almost made me do it

Yea Linda, there hasn't been a time in Berrian's career where I haven't hated him. Whether it be his team or the fact that he consistently gets talked up in fantasy football and produces one or two serviceable games a year, he's been a thorn in my side since day 1.

The Bible is non-fiction? I'm sure it's chock full of citations and references so one can confirm this.

I'm sure all those athletes who went to Arizona State are worried, too.

buckyor- is that a Pat Tillman joke?

bear- my hatred for berrian, and you, has been active since the first time he torched the badgers while at Fresno state

buckyor said...

No, it's not a Pat Tillman joke- merely a reference to the fact that ASU athletes are all Sun Devils. Locally referred to merely as the Devils.

Maybe Duke athletes ought to be worried as well?
