Speaking as a father of three girls trust me you want boring kids. The non-boring ones wind up as celebrity judges on X-factor with that look in their eye as if they could snap at any minute or dating Samantha Ronson

In regards to having no personality whatsoever, I think Flacco is second only to Bill Belichik in the NFL.

Bus, Joe Flacco. Joe, Bus.

Thanks, Dad.

Teach them to play RPGs, read Tolkien, sing in school choir etc. You know encourage their nascent geekiness, they are related to me afterall

In one of the photos Flacco looks like Frankenstein with his arms out, wrists bent and mouth agape.

That was his response when the photographer, Jason Prezant, asked the wedding party to 'act scarred' as they pretended they were watching a movie.

My spawn is a voracious reader & she does NOT have time or patience for boys her age. It's GREAT. She also sings in the choir and looks down on girls who dress inappropriately.

I've never got the impression Flacco was "dull" necessarily, but instead just...awkward. Quiet and generally emotionless, but the most likely person in the office to send a NSFW mass email and be surprised that some people might be offended by it.

Hell, dull people don't "try" skateboarding for giggles, let alone try it for the first time DURING THE WEEK LEADING UP TO A PLAYOFF GAME. That's just bizarre naivety and/or weirdness.

Killer Cars: Quiet and generally emotionless, but the most likely person in the office to send a NSFW mass email and be surprised that some people might be offended by it.


The man he replaced at QB, Steve McNair, was famous for taking naps before games. In that last season (where the Ravens lost 10 straight to end the season), the media were referencing that reputation and questioning whether McNair still had the "passion" for the game.

"Being boring" means that Joe is not likely to get a 15 yard hanky or go Super-Asshole like Phil Rivers or get involved in a "nightclub incident".

And I want my QB to be holding a bottle of MD 20/20 - a shout-out to his Delaware heritage (go Blue Hens!).

I should hope the photo was Edie Falco's idea. Joe spends so much of his time footballing that he probably relishes any chance to not have to start every conversation with "Flip 29-Z right green on two on two".

I'm torn. Part of me is eternally grateful to the 49ers for keeping that scourge of the Earth - Falcons fans - out of my city and Superdome. OTOH, we're only a decade removed as division rivals. Old flames, good or bad, tend to die hard.

But I can't be arsed to give two sh*ts about Baltimore. It's just not part of the league where I spend a lot of time except for fantasy players.

Whatevs. I'm just hoping for a good game. The only problem is that I've quit drinking. At least temporarily. It's difficult to hurl Defcon 1 insults at a football game after smoking a joint. May just have to rely on my natural rage in order to get into Super Bowl form this year.

CSB - Just one hour ago I walked into a circle of 49er fans on Canal St. here in New Orleans, and all but dropped to my knees sucking dicks in thanks for beating ATL. Everyone laughed, some bro-hugs were had, and then I hopped on the streetcar. I'd like to extend the same thanks to all the 49er fans here at Fark.

When was that taken and what's the story behind it? Great pic.


"People think punters are worthless individuals, except for on Sundays," Koch told BaltimoreRavens.com. "We're at this part of the scale where they do whatever they can to make fun of us or make us seem not as much of a human as they are."

That may have changed a little bit when Koch scored a touchdown on a fake field-goal against the Raiders earlier this year. The score was a first for Koch and inadvertently began the "Punters Are People, Too" movement in the Ravens locker room.

Rich Eisen has sent T-shirts to the facility in Owings Mills to Sam Koch and the catchphrase has caught on in a hurry. "It's becoming a trend now," said Koch.

Eisen has made a good point, especially as it pertains to Sam Koch. Punters are people, and on Sundays, punters like Sam Koch can be pretty special ones.

I had a blast when the SB was here in Dallas. Loved meeting all the Green Bay & Pittsburgh fans. I went out wearing my Cowboys gear so they knew I was a local & they all chatted me up like we were old pals. I'm sure I'm supposed to hate both of those teams, but everyone was really nice except for one Pitt fan driving past in a car screaming COWBOYS SUCK WHARARARARRGARBLE! It was like, "Yeah sure, ok, at least I'm not an asshole like you, bubba."

Anyway. Go suck some Niner dick, Mr. Freckle. I won't judge you.
