Kenny Powers On Trusting Women

From Eastbound & Down

Kenny Powers,

“A lot of people say Kenny Powers is a woman hater. That’s not true. I love women, every f***ing one of them, even the ugly-as-sh** ones. But don’t ask me to trust them, not even nuns. Because every pair of ti** comes with a gaping hole of need that even Kenny Powers can’t fill.”

Brady Quinn Involved in Gay Dating Scandal

Former Notre Dame quarterback Brady Quinn is doing his best impression of Mike “I’m not gay. I’m heterosexual” Piazza.  According to TMZ, Quinn’s lawyer has sent a cease-and-desist letter to a homosexual-dating website demanding that photos of Quinn be removed from the advertisement.

The message: Brady Quinn is not gay.  Evidently Quinn is willing to go so far as to fight gay people to prove his heterosexuality.

While it is normal, and expected, that a professional athlete would not want his image used for advertising without his permission, it is quite another matter to go out of one’s way to deny he is a homosexual.  To quote The Bard, “The Brady doth protest to much, methinks.”

Here are a few suggestions for Quinn:

  1. Stop being so homophobic.
  2. Keep your shirt on.
  3. Stop taking homoerotic photographs.
  4. Try to stop dressing like a member of the Village People.
  5. Stop sucking at football.

As a side note, Coach Charlie “I looked at myself and saw a disasterWeis, may want to get in contact with Quinn’s lawyers.  Not to appeal the jury verdict “You Are Fat” from his failed-gastric-bypass lawsuit, but to represent Jimmy Clausen.  If Clausen keeps taking pictures wearing a banana hammock and posing oil with two other guys, it will not be long until the gay rumors start flying.
