No Whammie, No Whammie, No Whammie, Stop

You know, I always figured that when Michael Irvin and Nate Newton got their own TV show, it would involve vans filled with weed and cokewhores. (I'd watch religiously, btw). So, imagine the bittersweet vibe I felt when the show they got -- "4th and Long" started on Spike TV this week -- is about wannabe-pro footballers trying to be the one out of 12 WRs and DBs to make the Cowboys roster next year.
I find it utterly hilarious that they're trying to fill the sizable footprints of American Hero Adam "Pacman" Jones and Closeted Now-Bill Terrell Owens. F'real, f'real. But imagine my utter disappointment when one of the contestants Steve "Speedy" Gonzalez was introduced. Because Speedy wants to leave the Philadelphia Soul to join the Cowgirls. To which I say, Yo Speedy, your Philly privileges are hereby revoked.
