After listening to the press conference of the Rutgers women's basketball team, I decided that we need a new award and trophy. In the aftermath of the Don Imus and Al Sharpton controversy, the team responded in a very dignified manner. Keep in mind that the underdog team was never expected to make the final four and lost in the championship game. The team should have been congratulated by the media for their excellent showing. Instead, they made the limelight due to a bonehead remark made by Don Imus, followed by Al Sharpton running into the night screaming, "the sky is falling, the sky is falling."
Don Imus is now on his apolgy tour and received a two week suspension for his stupid remarks. As for (A) Al Sharpton, my suggestion is that if he so offended and hurt, perhaps he should continue his pretentious crusade to the hiphop and rapper nation, who were the creators of this type of insulting phrases. Oops, I forgot. You can, we can't.
The idea for the proposed new award entered my mind just minutes before I started this entry. I haven't decided the name of the award nor it's trophy yet, but the intent of the award would be to counter balance the coveted "Cat Ass Trophy" awarded to the "Asshole Of The Week". The award would go to someone who did something admirable and intelligent. I'll have more on this proposed award as time passes. Suggestions are welcomed.

The Hits Just Keep On Coming: It dawned on me today that Edward Scissorhands would have difficulty peeing. Dangerous at best, circumcision at worst, I can't fathom how he could function in life, with the exception of being a butcher or a rabbi.
