The Monday Melange 04.26.10: Roger Goodell, Ben Roethlisberger

–Please meet “Steve”, our new travel correspondent and executive director of transportation here at Everyone’s Entitled to Joe’s Opinion.  It is a pleasure to have “Steve” on board to handle all of our transportation arrangements here at Everyone’s Entitled to Joe’s Opinion, and we look forward to hearing what he has to say about travel-related subjects.  We are confident that “Steve” will do an excellent job here, especially when the mode of transportation is riding lawn mower and the destination is the Oyster Shack.  And he definitely knows his rights, which is yet another plus factor.  Here he is, in rare form:

–So I hear that Roger Goodell has suspended Ben Roethlisberger.  Kinda had to, after how he dealt with Ookie Vick and Pacman Jones.  Otherwise, he would have had a race riot on his hands.

–Seriously.  How much trouble can one get into in Milledgeville, Georgia?  I have been through Milledgeville, once.  There is not a whole lot down there.  But apparently Ben Roethlisberger found a way.  (I need to go out with him sometime and let him show me some things.)

–Are liberals and atheists smarter than Christians?  Michael Bell examines some recent studies that come to some provocative conclusions on this issue, and then gives his own take.  Short answer:  Yes, but there are some confounding factors, i. e. liberals tend to prefer to live in large cities.  In large cities, people have greater access to information; this makes those who live in large cities smarter (by and large) than people who live in small towns or rural areas.  Also, the core message of Christianity–a crucified leader–is a message that just doesn’t make sense and which many reject as foolishness.

–As long as we’re looking at videos, care to watch Charlie Hall and Francis Chan in a breakdance competition?

Nice try Francis, but I think Charlie’s got you in this one.

–The last time we did one of these, we were wondering who would be the first to yell “GET IN THE HOLE!!!!!” when Tiger Woods was playing in the Masters, and who would be the first to respond with “That’s what she said!!!!!”.  Well, Phil Mickelson won the Masters and Tiger Woods managed to make it through without completely and totally embarrassing himself at least.

–How’s the weather down in Amundsen-Scott Station, Antarctica?  High:  -47.  Low:  -81.  Windchill:  -113.

  1. “the core message of Christianity–a crucified leader–is a message that just doesn’t make sense and which many reject as foolishness.”

    Absolutely true. Paul even said in 1 Corinthians that it’s foolishness… to those who perish. But to those of us being saved it is the power of God. Paul refers to the Gospel, salvation, and much about God as a “mystery.” God chose foolish things to confound the wise of this age.

    Are atheists smarter than Christians? Read (or listen to) anything by Ravi Zacharias. I suggest Jesus Among Other Gods. Take two Tylenol first.
