LeGarrette Blount of the Philadelphia Eagles had something stupid to say. Head Coach Doug Pedersen asked his former teammate, Brett Favre to address the team on the eve of the Super Bowl. The media asked him if it was a big deal that Brett was going to speak to the team. Blount asked how many Super Bowls has he won, which the answer is one. Blount then says that unless he wins 2 or more Super Bowls, he doesn’t need to listen to what he has to say. That is just ridiculous. Favre is a legend and Scott would love to talk to Brett Favre. As a matter of fact, Scott is going to get Brett Favre on Helmets Off. LeGarrette Blount is a fool for not wanting to talk to Brett. Tom Brady would sit down with Favre and pick his brain.
Justin Timberlake is performing at halftime of the Super Bowl for the second time in his career. He held a press conference and he said that he wouldn’t let his son play football. This is coming from a guy who exposed a breast during a Super Bowl halftime performance. What message does that send? Why would he say that after he is performing at halftime of the biggest football game of the year. There is no conclusive evidence that football is a deadly sport. Nothing is wrong with Scott’s mind. The only problem that Scott deals with is pain when he wakes up in the morning.
The former Michigan State and US Women’s Gymnastics trainer Larry Nassar who has been accused and sentenced to life in prison for Sexual Assault on many victims. There was a father of three girls who were Sexually Assaulted by Larry Nassar. Nassar is in the victim impact statements of the trial. The father asked the Judge to be locked in a room with Nassar for five minutes, the Judge declined, he then asked for 1 minute and the Judge said no again. The father then charged at Nassar but didn’t reach him before the officers tackled him and arrested him. As they were taking him out of the room, they were patting him on the back. The assistant District Attorney said that he can’t act like that, the father replies “you have never lived through this.” Is it really justice to just lock up Nassar for life? Scott hopes and prays that he doesn’t have to go through what these parents have gone through with their children with Nassar.
