Chucky And Treason

August 10th, 2009

Well, hopefully for Chucky he’s not linked to treason.

He shouldn’t unless he opens his mouth. And since he has a microphone on BSPN for Monday Night Football he better be careful.

Peter King, in his weekly must-read for football fans, his “Monday Morning Quarterback” column on, wrote about the time Chucky when to Afghanistan this summer. Seems as though Chucky, on the Fourth of July no less, was invited into some top secret meetings where combat battle plans were discussed.

Before the meeting, Chucky had to sign a document which could really cost him.

When five current and former NFL coaches (Tom Coughlin, Jeff Fisher, John Harbaugh, Jon Gruden, Bill Cowher) journeyed to Iraq earlier this summer to visit the troops, they spent the morning of the Fourth of July in a top-secret Battle Assessment Meeting, where looming combat plans were discussed. Before the meeting began, the coaches had to sign anti-treason forms, saying if they disclosed to anyone what was discussed in the meeting, they could be tried on federal treason charges.

Joe just can’t picture Chucky being blindfolded and tied to a pole with a firing squad standing in front of him, though Joe knows guys like Michael Clayton and Meshawn Johnson likely would volunteer for the task.

Thinking of firing squads always reminds Joe of one of his favorite lines from Curly Howard. The Three Stooges were to be executed but they had the choice of being beheaded or burned at the stake.

Curly chose being burned at the stake. Moe asked why and Curly said, “A hot steak’s better than a cold chop any day.”

Speaking of the Stooges, Joe’s confident they would serve plenty of Caybrew in their bar.

    When I read your headline, Joe, I thought your post would concern Coach Gruden’s visit to the Saints’ camp, where he met with the quarterbacks, according to published reports.

    Would you consider THAT treason?

    Remember, Coach Gruden is still being paid by Mr. Glazer for his unexpired contract, and it’s quite a bit of dough, too.

    Sure, that would be treason too. But with the Saints, Chucky’s only risking, what, $15 million? It’s not like he’s staring a death penalty in the face.

    Hey Joe those Caybrew’s that Curley were serving seemed awfully strong!
