A Violent Femme’s View – As Cee Lo Green Says…..
For once, and those of you who know me in real life will find this hard to believe, I don’t know where to start. I think I’ll start with a letter to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Dear Senior Nominating Committee:
First of all, I’d like to congratulate you on having the wisdom to select Dave Robinson as a finalist for induction into the Hall of Fame. Robby has been grievously overlooked for years, and it’s about damned time that you figured that out.
Now, on to the matter at hand. WHY THE (F-BOMB) ISN’T JERRY KRAMER ON THIS LIST AS WELL?
I’ve written a blog post about this injustice before. I’ve detailed the reasons that this omission, after being nominated more times than ANY OTHER PLAYER without being elected is wrong. It’s glaringly obvious to me that you can, apparently, only let one Lombardi-era Packer in at a time, and someone who is probably named Cliff Christl decided that was Robinson. Maybe he can’t push for more than one player. That wouldn’t surprise me.
Still, you all suck. I can’t believe you (f-bomb)ing jerks can’t see how stupid this is. How utterly and egregiously wrong this is. How deserving #64 really is of being in your so called (f-bomb)ing hallowed halls. How much the fans cared. We signed petitions, we sent letters, we tweeted. Bloggers wrote about this. More important, I believe to you asshats anyway, pro players wrote expressions of support. A lot of them. Frank Gifford. BART STARR.
My friend Alicia, who has tirelessly led the effort to finally get her father inducted poured her soul into this. Alicia is an amazing person, so you’ve ignored that too by this sheer idiocy. She’s been gracious about the new slight, as has Jerry. This doesn’t surprise me. I, however, cannot be that gracious.
You’ve made a mistake. AGAIN. I hope you someday figure that out and it’s while Jerry can actually show up for his ceremony. But I doubt that will happen. You’re too (f-bomb)ing stupid.
