Good news

You know of all the labels I use for my blog posts there's a certain one that holds a special place in my heart. That would be the "Total Fucking Morons" tag, that I only get to break out once in a blue moon. In fact, I've only ever gotten to use it once, and that was to berate Tom Tony Gallager of The Province [Vancouver] for writing that Pierre LaCroix deserves some blame for the Bertuzzi-Moore incident.

No seriously he actually wrote that.

Tom Tony Gallager set the bar, and set it extremely high I might add, for the benchmark of unintelligence needed to earn a "Total Fucking Morons" tag. He's essentially the inaugural member in the exclusive club of Total Fucking Morons.

Well today is a special day because we, my dozens of random people who waste their workday by reading me friends, get to see a new member inducted.

Ladies and gentlemen, I present the Sultan of Stupidity, the Master of Mindlessness : Steve Rosenbloom of the Chicago Tribune (via the Sancho Panza of Puck Daddy, Sean Leahy), who is inducted for seriously suggesting that players should not wear helmets. Wait, let me re-phrase that: that players should not wear helmets at all levels including mites. He goes on to suggest that not wearing helmets will actually make them safer.

He actually is arguing that kids not wearing helmets will make them less likely to get hurt. No really.

Adding to the idocy... the timing; Less than a week since Don Sanderson died after hitting his head on the ice after a fight. A tragedy that would have been avoided had a helmet been on his head.

Bravo, stupidity in timing, logic and sentiment. Any writer who is able to pull off the triple corwn of dim-wits is a sure-fire hall-of-famer in my book, and since this is my book, welcome to the club Steve.

Steve Rosenbloom: Total Fucking Moron

You know inclusion in a club this exclusive deserves some kind of special trophy.. The Masters has a green jacket, and induction into the NFL hall-of-fame gets inductees a Gold coat. But a jacket seems to cliché. What could we use.....Maybe I'll turn to my favorite defunct comedy central show for help.

That's it!! a Golden Helmet!!! Well done Rosenbloom you've earned it.

P.S. The article is too stupid to even go through FJM style. It's dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb.

  1. Wow. Tell that to my parents who watched me get 4 concussions in my life, one of them from hockey? Jesus. Haven't there been enough problems with head injuries in the NHL without adding to this problem? Does this dude even watch hockey?
    My mom made me wear a helmet to go out and play shinny when I was a kid. You're right, this dude goes above and beyond to be a total fucking moron. He should get some kind of NHL award for it.
