Cracked Takes on ESPN.com

I'm working on a little Mondesi project that's not quite done, but I think it will be worth the wait. The only hint I'll give is that it was a sequel to a popular feature I did a few months ago. So check back for that. In the meantime, let me say that I enjoyed Sidney Crosby rubbing his Olympic snub in Wayne Gretzky's face, I enjoyed Pitt beating St. John's so thoroughly that they resorted to putting the ballboys in the game, and I really enjoyed a weekend without having to listen to Shannon Sharpe butcher the English language while reading highlights.
I don't have a cache of links lined up for you today, but you have to check out Cracked.com's parody of ESPN.com's Super Bowl coverage, which was just posted. For all you ESPN haters out there, this is right up your alley. Great stuff.
I'll be back soon. And don't forget to send your links or feedback to mondesishouse@gmail.com

Really now, how do you even know that it's really english that Shannon Sharpe is attempting to speak?

ps-I will soon be dating Trenni's picture and an Adam Sandler style TV show where I call her up and hang up is in the works. I'll keep you posted.

oh, and El Sid's goal this weekend was just freaky.

In fact, don't look now, but the Pens.....

ps-KC is STILL for jagoffs

I think that Shannon has a condition called "mouth-full-of-marbles-itis" or something like that. And the only thing worse than ESPN's Super Bowl coverage is it's friggin X-games coverage, my only hope is that they try so hard to jam extreme sports down our throats that people soon tire of the whole fad. Shaun White's a jagoff...and tbart, you're bringing back the Denise show?!? YOU ARE THE MAN!!

To kind of quote Bill Simmons in his column today on Page 2, "Two black coaches are in the Super Bowl, but the biggest advancement for black coaches in the NFL was made when the Pittsburgh Steelers hired Omar Epps to replace Bill Cowher."

Not the exact quote, but still kind of humorous AND good to see that he took a break from giving Brady handjobs long enough to write that.

Cracked.com's ESPN spoof is pure genius. In fact, while I was reading it moments ago, I had ESPN on TV (in preparation for tonight's Pitt game) and they were interviewing Kobe Bryant for his thoughts on two black head coaches in the Super Bowl.

MEMO TO ESPN - It's a great story, but enough already.

The best two parts of the Cracked spoof:

Steven A. Smith: If y'all don't stop perpetuatin' on some black stereotypes, we gonna have words, yo!

Bill Simmons: Bill Belichick created black people

Peyton's wife joins what is hopefully every woman in America, in prefering to bang Tom Brady. I'd like to think there is no woman deranged enough to enjoy having an audibling, fetus face on top of them every night, but I could see that being a popular fantasy in West Virgina.

Best part of the ESPN spoof:

"Frustrated Tom Brady Hate-Fucks 107 Supermodels, Your Mom "
