Al's Rantings

A view of the world from a hillbilly perspective.

Location: Virginia

I was born and went to school in the heart of the Appalachian mountains, in southern West Virginia. After graduating from college, I got married, and began working in Bristol, TN. I have have various jobs from Tennessee to up state New York and a few points between. Now I work in West Virginia. Some day, I want to live in Alaska.

Sports Questions

I watch a lot of sports, so there are some things that bother me. Like the following:

1. NFL place kickers - why do their shoes never match. I can understand that they have a special kicking shoe, but for Pete's sake, wear the one that matches it. Having different shoes is crazy
2. Celebrations in college and pros - a guy makes a tackle on the special teams and goes wild by celebrating all the way off the field. Making tackles is your job! Forget the celebrations. Expecially the stupid touchdown celebrations. I believe Vince Lombardi said something to the effect of "Its the end zone, act like you've been there before."
3. NASCAR - Why is it that drivers are never happy with their cars. Its either too tight, too lose, the tires are bad, it needs a battery, etc. BUT, every car that gets caught up in a crash was "a good car, a top 10 finisher, good running, etc"
4. Baseball - The manager really needs to wear a suit. Seeing those fat managers in tight uniforms just ain't right.
5. NFL - Guys in the defense secondary love to lay a big hit on a receiver after a catch, or even a miss. But if they get an interception and are about to be tackled, many will fall to the ground or run out of bounds. Seems they can dish it out but they can't take it.

Until next time...
