"Most people would say you're crazy," Chambers said. "So, so is the world."

I just found my new hero.

that's a woman?
2003-04-26 10:58:20 PM  
SO when they win does she pour a 5 gallon bucket of geritol over the coach?
2003-04-26 10:58:35 PM  
The Bengals should look into her services.
2003-04-26 10:58:38 PM  
Who would tackle her? Would YOU want to be the asshat responsible for killing the old lady? Do YOU want to be the one everyone hates? Well??
2003-04-26 10:58:42 PM  
I'd tackle it!
2003-04-26 10:58:56 PM  
My grandma can kick your grandma's ass!
2003-04-26 10:59:54 PM

Watch the video folks,it's hi-larious,damn near as funny as Bubb Rubb.
More power to her,she's in great shape for 70.
2003-04-26 11:00:31 PM  
If she had any balls she'd be playing rugby.

The Orlando Starz were formed in June 2001 and compete against several other women's teams in North American and Montreal.

Apparantly, Montreal is no longer a part of North America. Lousy French people.
2003-04-26 11:03:32 PM  
I wonder how much she can bench...
2003-04-26 11:04:05 PM  
Mae Young could kick her ass.
2003-04-26 11:08:00 PM  
Those women hit like . . . well I guess they're allowed to hit like women . . . but they still don't look like they hit hard in any event.
2003-04-26 11:08:31 PM  
The whistle goes "Woo woo!"
2003-04-26 11:08:50 PM  
That is the strangest thing I have ever seen.
2003-04-26 11:09:54 PM  
my grandma could hit harder then that!... no really she can.
2003-04-26 11:09:55 PM  
By professional of course they mean...retarted.
2003-04-26 11:10:12 PM  
id hit it
2003-04-26 11:10:21 PM  
Theres like 90 year old martial artists that can do 100 pushups in under a minute. I can't do that and I'm in shape in my 20s. Old age just slows down your top heart rate and your regeneration. Also the older you get the more chances you have something debilitating. If you keep in shape, you can be old as dirt and still kicking ass. Keeping in shape takes alot of mental effort though, and its tough keeping your mental game down a slope.

I don't see the big deal, Mel Kiper has her going early in the 5th round tomorrow.
2003-04-26 11:19:07 PM  
She'd hit you!
2003-04-26 11:21:48 PM  
Thats my Grandma!
2003-04-26 11:30:02 PM  
not only would i hit it, but she has no teeth to drag.
2003-04-26 11:31:16 PM  
You go granny.
2003-04-26 11:34:44 PM  
She looks younger than my 56 year old mom. Wow
2003-04-26 11:36:14 PM  
I like it!
2003-04-26 11:36:19 PM  
Mmmmm, hmmm! *snap* *snap* You go, giiirl. Show that dawg Tyrone not to step on yo shiznit, girlfrien'!

Aw-huh, Uh-huh! Aw-huh Aw-hah Uh-huh!
2003-04-26 11:37:14 PM  
I can do 100 pushups.

(given 4 tries, about 25 per try, in an hour)
2003-04-26 11:50:11 PM  
Then I give 'em my football face........"
2003-04-26 11:52:02 PM  
OK, I know she is 70... but those tackles were posed.
I'd like to see a live action tackle, just for my morbid curiousity. I bet her uterus would drop onto the field.
2003-04-27 12:02:12 AM  
I'm sorry but I think that even if I knew the person on the other side of me was a 70 year old woman I'd still run at her and try to rip her head off. Winning isn't everything but losing sucks... especially when you lose to somebodies grandma.
2003-04-27 12:08:13 AM  
i'd hit it...ahaha no
2003-04-27 12:30:34 AM  
she's in impressive shape, but if you watch the video, it's obvious that the other players just let her tackle them to be nice. i don't think she could bring down a 7 year old boy.
2003-04-27 12:40:25 AM  
I wonder how much crack she has to smoke before she can play as well as she does...
2003-04-27 01:23:00 AM  
Yeah, she's in shape in all, but she'd obviously get destroyed in any type of real football game.
2003-04-27 01:32:53 AM  
I have no idea of what to think of this one. Was is disturbing or funny?
2003-04-27 01:35:49 AM  
Funnily disturbing
2003-04-27 01:36:20 AM  
I need a copy of this. Anyone know where to get a downloadable version? I want to look up and look at, look up and look at.

Quote from the video "She's not a novelty"

Uh, yes she is! No one did a story about the other biatchs on the biatch football team, or even the Biatch Football League (BFL). I'm sorry, but women playing tackle football is a novelty, and when your 70 yrs. old, damn, Ripley's here you come.

/That biatch just whacked my wiff her walker!!!
2003-04-27 05:04:53 AM  
It's all fun and games until someone gets hurt
