Comments of the Day: Butt Prints in the Sand defenders unite!

The floor is yours, Assy McGee.
  • The floor is yours, Assy McGee.

This week's edition of Studies in Crap reviewed Butt Prints in the Sand. Sam Glenn's ass-filled self-help book is pretty ridiculous, as Crap Archivist Alan Scherstuhl points out.

But Glenn isn't without his defenders. The positivity police have come for Scherstuhl, and we'd like to salute a couple of comments that Scherstuhl holds close to his heart.

Comment of the Day: Don't blame Southwest's principal

Posted By on Fri, Mar 4, 2011 at 4:30 PM

No one blames a principal for leaving a school that resembles "Battle Royale."
  • No one blames a principal for leaving a school that resembles "Battle Royale."

Southwest Early College Campus principal No. 3, Ben Boothe, is calling it quits. But Plog commenter Denlaw tells us not to blame him for saying peace out, unlike his predecessors. Tell it, Denlaw:

"At least he is staying the year. And giving fair notice. No one should be held responsible if they say they are going to switch jobs after the year.

Now walking out in the middle of the year, that is another story."

Truth. And we're not blaming him after seeing the stats.

Comment of the Day: Jerry Johnston may have to give up his Black AmEx card

Posted By on Tue, Feb 1, 2011 at 4:00 PM

The Rev. Jerry Johnston might want to give up his Black AmEx.
  • The Rev. Jerry Johnston might want to give up his Black AmEx.

The Rev. Jerry Johnston isn't getting much sympathy as his First Family Church faces foreclosure. The Overland Park megachurch owes more than $13 million to Regions Bank, but there has long been question of financial accountability at the church. The Mountains Made Flat

comes through with the Comment of the Day for this quip:

"Jerry might even have to give up his Black American Express Card and take some of his family off the payroll.

The Lord giveth; and the Lord taketh away."

Comment of the Day: Tripp should feel insulted

Posted By on Fri, Jan 28, 2011 at 4:00 PM

Bristol Palin is pulling five figures.
  • Bristol Palin is pulling five figures.

Bristol Palin won't be getting $20,000 to preach abstinence at Washington University. I really don't care if she wants to get hypocritical about bumping uglies, even if she doesn't abide (as the Dude would say). But in all of the controversy, I forgot to think of the children. Thankfully, gbuell didn't, and his thoughts are totally with Tripp. Gbuell, the floor is yours:

"If I found out that when I was a baby, my mother had toured the country speaking about abstinence and used my existence as an example of why abstinence is awesome, I'd be pretty insulted."

I would be, too, unless I was getting a cut of the $20,000.

Comment of the Day: Steve DeBerg's broken hand explained

Posted By on Thu, Jan 27, 2011 at 4:30 PM

How's your hand, Steve?
  • How's your hand, Steve?

Longtime Kansas City Chiefs fans may recall that quarterback Steve DeBerg broke his non-throwing hand during the 1990 season. Today's story about DeBerg forwarding offensive e-mails (unless you have a kink for two women, a funnel and a fish) may have finally answered some questions. It did, at least, for one of the Plog's Twitter followers. The Comment of the Day comes courtesy of Brandon H. or BHIndepMo:

"so, that's how he broke his hand in 1990 RT @pitchplog Ex-Chiefs quarterback Steve DeBerg sends porn forwards"

I'll buy it.

Comment(s) of the Day: Smoking-ban study keeps the Great Cig Debate rolling

Posted By on Tue, Jan 25, 2011 at 5:00 PM

Reader The DLC took issue with our story about a study released this week contending that area smoking bans are having little impact on the business of bars and restaurants.

Those pesky civil liberties, always getting in the way.

I would argue that the rhetoric on the pro-ban side has been way "rowdier," extreme and self-righteous than on the other.

Comment of the Day: Opening with a head butt takes balls

Posted By on Wed, Jan 19, 2011 at 4:30 PM

One Chiefs fan paid tribute to Andre The Giant.
  • One Chiefs fan paid tribute to Andre The Giant.

Kansas City Chiefs fans know how to tailgate -- but some take it a little too far. Like, say, the guy in this video who apparently started a good ol'-fashioned parking-lot brouhaha at Arrowhead. And the road-ragey guy didn't open with a fist. He led with his head. Here's babynewyear's take in the Comment of the Day:

"wow..........the headbutt was the opening move....guys got balls....."

Or the guy came from the Andre The Giant school of fighting.

Comment of the Day: Coverage of Brian Euston's killing isn't about race

Posted By on Thu, Jan 13, 2011 at 5:00 PM

Why did the Brian Euston homicide get so much media attention?
  • Why did the Brian Euston homicide get so much media attention?

Following the mysterious killing of Brian Euston in Westport, there was a lot of discussion on why the Euston homicide received so much media attention. An anonymous e-mailer wrote us to give credit where it's due: Euston's family and friends.

Here's the full e-mail: "I'll make it short and sweet. The reason Euston's death has received

so much press has absolutely nothing to do with race. His family and

friends have gone to great lengths to make sure people are aware that

violence and the outrageous number of homicides in Kansas City is

recognized by people of all social classes and races, and that

something needs to be done about it.

"They want justice for their son,

and their efforts are noteworthy-hence the reason it has received so

much press. They refuse to acquiesce to what has happened. If other

families of homicide victims chose to work as hard as the Euston

family to make a difference and find answers, they would receive the

same amount of press. Case in point: it's not because they are a

white family, it's because they refuse to give up until they find

answers and justice is served. Please consider a follow-up article

acknowledging this truth."

Comment of the Day: Blame the parents in the ferret-eating-baby-fingers incident

Posted By on Tue, Jan 11, 2011 at 4:30 PM

chempo.jpg

The story of the ferret chewing off seven -- SEVEN! -- of an infant's fingers in Grain Valley left a lot of questions unanswered. I didn't crucify the parents because I wanted to see some answers, but others weren't willing to reserve judgment. Kansas City blogger Chimpotle took the parents to task, because how the hell does a ferret get close to a 4-month-old, let

alone munch off seven fingers. The floor is yours, Chimpotle:

I'll rail against the parents. There's no way the baby started crying as his SEVENTH FINGER was being gnawed off. So they probably sat there with the kid crying for who knows how long. And then we have Mr. Ferret, who is running loose around the house, apparently so hungry that seven fingers of another living creature sounded appealing. Then the father threw said ferret so hard that it died. This kid has a bright future of neglect ahead of him.

Comment of the Day: Todd Haley coaches like he's playing Madden

Posted By on Wed, Dec 29, 2010 at 4:00 PM

Is that you KCChiefsRock187?
  • Is that you KCChiefsRock187?

Kansas City Chiefs coach Todd Haley has a riverboat gambler's mentality to coaching. He's effing crazy. But Pitch editor Joe Tone has found five reasons to love the visor-sporting coach's craziness. But Tone omitted one thing that struck me and Commenter of the Day thephantom816:

"I've -always said that Todd Haley coaches football the way most people play Madden."
 
Exactly. Haley coaches football like the dude who kicks your ass on X-Box 360. Onside kicks? Refusing to punt? If it's in the game, it's in the game.
