WTF, Mate?

Taking a break from the oh-so-popular "Ask Jay" articles, I have a few comments to make about the world.  Starting with the SuperBowl...


I mean, What The F**k?  For those of you who haven't noticed, I'm a Patriots fan and have been ever since I started watching football.  All I have to say is that I hope those Patriot players (I'm not naming names, you know who you are) made a lot of money for throwing the game.  Look at it like this, no one thought that the Giants had a chance.  NFL.COM was predicting a blowout along the lines of 40-10.  So, somebody put alot of money on the long-shot and put a couple mil in the pockets of a few key Patriot players and WHAM, somebody just made a lot of money off the game.  There might even be Mafia involvement, my investigative reporting has not had the chance to fully explore the possibility yet.  The one thing I can say for certain is that Tom Brady was not in on it, he took way too much punishment for it to have been self-inflicted.  Maybe there was also some jealousy on the part of the offensive linemen about not receiving enough credit, when one is seen driving his new Bentley with a sh!t-eating grin we'll have some answers.


Secondly, what is it with these middle-aged white guys dropping out of the Presidential elections?  John Edwards, Mit Romney... Who's next?  What, they don't have have a support group?  No history of success for middle-aged white guy presidential candidates?  Politicians talk about "change" and yet keep putting up middle-aged white guys as possibilities.  At the very minimum, Dubya's left a bad taste in everyone's mouth.  Nobody wants to take a chance on getting another "Dubya" or at least wants to give another group a chance to do better. Whatever the reason, the Republicans have apparently missed the message entirely.  They haven't realized that middle-aged white guys had their chance and blew it.   Caucasians have lost all electability, if the republicans don't get some versatility than they're going to have a hard time in the coming years.  If getting a woman or a half black guy is too much for them than they should at least get someone who had a great-grand-father-in-law who was black, or something.  Maybe if one of their many middle-aged white guys had an inter-racial marriage?  No, I can't imagine the republican party backing something THAT radical.  :)


Anyway, back to the grind of "Ask Jay".  Send comments and questions to me and I'll make sure to post some applicable advice.  Patriot fans, you can write also and we can have a touching cry-on-each-other's-shoulder's moment.  And yes, I am an equal opportunity advice column writer, meaning I still take questions from white guys and republicans alike.  I'll answer for anyone, no matter how un-Politically Correct that makes me. 


p.s. No Giants fans.
