The Monday Melange 01.25.10: Todd Grantham, PETA, Lane Kiffin

Congrats to the Aints on making the Super Bowl.

–Todd Grantham is now the third highest-paid defensive coordinator in all of college football.  In actuality, he is the highest-paid defensive coordinator who is not the coach-in-waiting (Will Muschamp) or the coach’s dad (Monte Kiffin).

–I like Todd Grantham.  It remains to be seen what he will be doing in two years time, but for now I am impressed.  At the introductory press conference he spoke of implementing an “aggressive, physical, attacking style defense that offenses will not look forward to playing against”.  Those are just words at this point, but to hear those words from our incoming DC does my heart hella good.

This church’s response to a person living in their community who called in with a legitimate need:  Epic fail.  If “Lee” had called your church, would they have done better?  I sure hope so.

–My fellow evangelicals:  We have gotten it all wrong on the subject of confession.  This business about confessing your sins only to God?  This is one area where we definitely need to stop praying and start doing.  This post landed pretty heavily with me, especially in light of what we talked about at my church this week.  I will be back later in the week with more at-length comments on this.

–Here’s a whole new reason for you to hate PETA:  Their president just came out with a statement defending Gilbert Arenas of the Washington Wizards, who has been suspended indefinitely for playing with a firearm in the locker room.  Why?  Because Arenas did an anti-fur ad for them back in the day.  And this comes to you from the exact same organization that wanted Georgia to get an animatronic replacement for Uga and lambasted Manu Ginobili for swatting a bat out of midair during a basketball game.  If this does not show you just how hypocritical the PETA peeps are, I don’t know what will.

–PETA:  A bunch of mindless jerks who will be first against the wall when the revolution comes.

–For those of you who never saw this, here is the video of Manu Ginobili swatting the bat out of the air:
