Unless he starts grabbing fellow players in the locker room, I don’t see the big deal. You can read the article from the screenshot below here.

Who doesn’t like watching popular people fall on their asses? It’s fun for the entire family. Gather the kids around!
Actually, not much more.
Watch as news anchors get the giggles after interviewing the hydrologically talented, but obviously vacuous, Ryan Lochte.
Begins with a commercial you can cancel out of after a few seconds. Worth the wait.

Or someone should at least take the other guy out for dinner afterward.
This looks like so much fun!
I’d giggle, too.
I hope this made it into a yearbook somewhere.
That headline is not completely true, but it could be in the case of the CBS television network and the right-wing “news” web site World Nut Daily (WND).
WND’s “award winning” writer Joe Kovacs picks a fight with CBS and the Super Bowl over its use of actor Neil Patrick Harris (NPH) sporting eye black containing the date of the Super Bowl.
(As aside: How is it that so many of these wingnut writers and preachers are “award winning”? Whose award did they win? Funny how they never mention which award they’re writing about. If it was an award worth mentioning specifically you can bet they would do so.)
Kovacs is pissed off that Harris is wearing eye black in such a way as to mock Christians and Tim Tebow, the middling quarterback famous for wearing eye black splashed with the number of Bible verses — a practice that got so out of hand, the NFL and NCAA both passed rules against players sporting any writing whatsoever in their eye black.
But let’s get back to Kovacs and WND:
Tim Tebow, known for his Christian faith as well as football, became world famous for proclaiming Bible verses such as John 3:16 on his eyeblack, especially when he played for the University of Florida Gators before going pro.
One football fan who watched the CBS promo Sunday made the connection between Harris and Tebow, saying, “They’re pushing a gay agenda by using him, and they’re mocking Christians at the same time.”
Harris is best known for his role as a child-prodigy physician in the 1989 TV series “Doogie Howser, M.D.”
Now 39, he makes no secret of his homosexuality, telling People magazine in November 2006, “I am happy to dispel any rumors or misconceptions and am quite proud to say that I am a very content gay man living my life to the fullest and feel most fortunate to be working with wonderful people in the business I love.”
Harris has become so famous and beloved, especially among Internet users below a certain age, that one need only use his initials — NPH — as a shorthand for his name, and most any reasonably ‘net-connected person below a certain age will immediately know to whom you are referring.
Tebow’s star has been crashing in the NFL ever since it was discovered that he has a hard time playing, you know, football at a pro level. He also came on a bit strong with the wingnut stuff in the beginning of his NFL career, to the point that at some practices when Tebow would start talking about praying and Jesus some of his fellow players would reportedly yell “shut the fuck up” at him.
Notice how NPH supposedly, in WND’s estimation, “makes no secret of his homosexuality.” Got that? This is the world in which these wingnuts reside; a world wherein LGBT folk are still supposed to keep their lives secret to the point that anyone who does not is doing something wrong.
WND also makes mention of the fact that NPH and his husband (gasp!) adopted children. I’m no expert, but I’ve followed NPH’s family life enough to know that, at least from the outside, his family could not be more boringly normal and happy. All kids should have parents as involved and fun as are NPH and his husband.
NPH is also, by all accounts, a genuinely good guy, which is why the evil homosexual must be so in-demand in Hollywood for acting and hosting gigs.
That WND and its followers find something evil in someone so good and nice says more about them than it ever could say about NPH.
In the end, of course, CBS should thank WND for all the free publicity that CBS will enjoy because of all this wingnut stupidity.

Not that I usually follow boxing, quite possibly the stupidest sport ever created, but I am happy to see that Manny Pacquiao went down hard flat on his face last night.
It couldn’t happened to a more deserving person in that sport. If you want to know why I do not like Pacquiao, read more about it here.
