With 2010 safely in the rearview mirror, I figured it would be fun for us to take a look back and see what actually happened this past year.
–Haiti suffered a catastrophic earthquake, and American musical artists responded by doing a remake of USA For Africa’s “We Are The World” with Justin Bieber singing Lionel Richie’s part. EPIC FAIL!!!!!!!!
–BP spilled some oil in the Gulf of Mexico.
–A census was taken, and it was found that the state of Michigan actually lost a few people.
–Ted Haggard started a new church at his home, then had a huge skinny dipping party at his pool.
–UGA athletic director Damon Evans got crunk in the ATL, then got caught with a pair of red panties in his lap. He is no longer the athletic director at UGA.
–Brett Favre retired from football. No, really. I’m not kidding. Just like the last time he retired. And the time before that. And the time before…you get the idea.
–Brett Favre sent naughty pictures of himself to a sideline reporter for the New York Jets. She then gave him her new cell phone number, with instructions to pass it on to Rex Ryan.
–Ben Roethlisberger got crunk in Milledgeville, GA, and Zach Mettenberger got crunk in Remerton, GA. I did not know where either of those places are, let alone that it was possible to do anything to get yourself in trouble in either place. I wonder what it would be like to get Damon Evans and these two together for a wild night of carousing? Who would be the wing man?
–Michael Vick said he wants a dog. No, seriously. Not sure I’m ready to think about this just yet. Can we start off by letting him have a copy of that painting with the poker-playing dogs and see how that goes?
Watch what happens around the 2:48 mark. If you don’t catch it, there is a slow-motion replay that starts at 3:16.
While we’re looking at videos: I know that those of you who are Georgia Tech fans are probably still bummed about getting beat at Miami. So if it’s any consolation to you, here is some video of a Clemson fan who didn’t take it too well when his team got beat. Note the expert analysis by Chris Fowler and Jesse Palmer of ESPN, with Chris Fowler struggling to keep from losing it. (Note: Everything prior to about the 1:45 mark is just Fowler and Palmer engaging in idle chitchat while waiting to go live; everything after that is what the fans who were watching at home saw.)
I have just found a stupendous idea for how to finally shed my status as a single and find the Mrs. Right that I have been waiting for all my life. The ATL’s very own Bishop Thomas Weeks, who was vaulted into celebrity status after his ugly divorce with evangelist Juanita Bynum, is taking his search for a replacement wife to the television airwaves with his very own reality show entitled “The Holy Hook Up: Who Will Be the Next Mrs. Weeks?”
This is such a good idea that I have decided to implement a similar measure right here at Everyone’s Entitled to Joe’s Opinion: “The Holy Hookup Reality Blog: Who Will Be the Next Mrs. Derbes?” Details are at this point yet to be determined, but all the answers will be coming out soon, so keep checking back.
Those of you who think that church is a dull place need to go to Reformissionary and watch this video. It’s a pastor who preaches an entire sermon on…well, I’ll let you find that out for yourself. Be prepared to laugh until you are blue in the face.
This pastor obviously has WAY too much time on his hands.
Well folks, 2007 was about as crazy a year as ever there was. I know that it is usually not customary to wait until four weeks into the new year to do retrospectives like this, but 2007 was such an extraordinarily crazy year that I really did need all of that time to decompress and fully analyze the happenings of that year and what it all means to humanity and life as we all know it. Now that I have had sufficient time to detach and decompress and get some objectivity, here is all of the good, the bad, and the ugly from 2007: Continue reading “A Look Back at 2007: What the F— Just Happened???”→
School is starting to crank up to full bore for the fall term, so I will not be blogging quite as profusely. So to stave you off until I get to where I can post more regularly, here’s a little something for those of you who are looking for an apartment, or expect to be looking for an apartment within the near present future.
If an apartment community advertises itself as your city’s “best-kept secret”, then there are probably very good reasons why it is such a well-kept secret. You would probably do very well to just go on and let it remain a secret.
