Adrian Clayborn Working With James HarrisonMay 17th, 2011
Football dominates Joe’s life. If he isn’t working on this site he’s watching the real man channel, the NFL Network, or listening to SiriusXM NFL Radio, or he is surfing for football news in the wee hours of the morning in between private moments of pining for that knock on the door from a cold, shivering, drenched Rachel Watson.
It was one of these moments — no, not a Rachel Watson moment — where Joe came up with some cool news.
Twittering at 1 a.m. Joe came across a post from Bucs first round draft pick Adrian Clayborn. He seemed bored from Arizona and was asking if there were any Bucs fans awake on the east coast. So Joe asked him who he was working out with.
Mere moments later, Clayborn responded.
a bunch of vets….james harrison, couple packs, rams guys, alot of guys to name.
So Clayborn is working out with Harrison and a couple of Packers? As Charlie Sheen would say, “Winning!” The fact that Clayborn is working out with Harrison gets Joe totally fired up.
There may not be a better guy for Clayborn to bond with. Harrison was an undrafted free agent with the Steelers and three times he was cut from the Steelers practice squad. But through hard work, sweat and toil, he is now the game’s best outside linebacker, a guy who should be lauded and held up as a standard for all NFL players by the suits in Manhattan.
But no! NFL hatchetman Roger Goodell is doing his very best to tear apart the very fabric of the NFL, a game we have all grown to love, treasure and covet.
Harrison is public enemy No. 1 in Goodell’s eyes. Harrison plays relentless football, physical football, football where men wince when crossing the line of scrimmage, football that quarterbacks have acid reflux over, football that is played through the whistle the way we were all taught to play football. The right way to play football, the correct way to play football.
Football that is America!
But this is just the opposite of what Goodell strives for. It’s almost as if secretly he wants there not to be a 2011 season, that’s the only logical reason for this utter nonsense that he fronts for his employers and this asinine lockout.
Not just that, if Goodell has his sinister way, the NFL will turn into a “game” that only drag queens from New Orleans and Fidel Castro worshippers in Greenwich Village with their dumbarse argyle sweaters, who hang in some low-rent coffeehouse listening to some two-bit, unemployed poet whine about the potato famine, will take a liking to.
If Joe wanted to watch flag football, he’d watch flag football!
Back to Clayborn, just thinking of him working with Harrison, there can be nothing bad coming out of that. Throw in working with some Packers who can bestow upon Clayborn the art of winning playoff games, this is just great stuff.
No, no eastern European hotties for Clayborn. He’s doing man’s work with real men, much to the chagrin of Goodell, who Joe is starting to believe is a wine-sipper.
