Friday Morning lulz.

Yes, that is real. And it is NOT spectacular.

Just when we thought Boise couldn't get any worse, they go and do something like this and totally redeem themselves! Although I'm not sure it gets much worse than the Poulan Weedeater Bowl, this re-branding of the old Humanitarian Bowl played on the blue turf is certainly a close second. Fun fact! The new bowl will feature teams from the WAC and the MAC which not only means that with Boise moving to the MWC and being unavailable for selection this game will sell literally 50 tickets each year, but that with New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Texas all featuring teams from those Conferences, four of the top five potato consuming states will be represented. So congratulations, Texas, we are officially fucking FAT! I'll be honest - the renaming kind of makes me nostalgic for Lee Corso because can't you just see him seizing his way through "THAT MUSTA BEENA HOT POTATA!!" references on Gameday highlights whenever a receiver dropped a pass? Memories...

Also, in what would be considered "dark comedy" along the lines of Louis CK, comes this from our friends in Alabama. Basically the setup is this: Alabama has lots of deadbeats who do not pay their child support, so in order to lock them up the police have to go to comically absurd lengths. And what better way to reach bottom of the barrel class evaders from one of the most undereducated states in the country? Why, college football, of course! Just watch the video, I fear I've said too much already:


This just in: People do not like having their hearts toyed with in such a cruel manner. Also, cops are kinda dicks.

I watched that this morning and while funny, it's kind of sad to take these people down at such a high moment in their life.

If they knew these people's address to send them a letter saying they won tickets, couldn't they just show up at their doorstep and arrest them without having to make a show out of it.

Whatever. Still funny and I was really surprised to see a woman on their not paying child support. (I guess I always just associate it with men)

Also, the spud bowl is hilarious.

If we just sterilized people like that, the police wouldn't have to use so many man-hours tracking them down for child support. Just sayin...

"Do I still get my tickets?"

Man, talk about going from 60 to zero in just 2 seconds.

Van Halen, high-fives, banners, and cameras. Really? Agreed with VikingFrog - show up at their house. What a waste of time and money. I actually feel bad for that guy.

Spitblood legal counsel- Is that entrapment???

The US government should have tried this on Osama. I hear he was a big Auburn fan.

Erybody who seen the Leprechaun say yeah! Yeah!

I saw something like this before, except it involved Chris Hansen and a naked Tech fan carrying a pack of wine coolers and some condoms.

I'm not sure he was there for tickets though.

I mean, if you were a cop, wouldn't you want to set something up like this to make your day more interesting. If it were me, I would rather be sitting in a nice cool room than go door to door. And it would also be freaking hilarious. I bet when cops get assignments like this, they act like like the little kid opening up the N64 on Xmas.

For those of you that feel "sorry" for these losers, consider this. These D-bags father children and then abandon them, physically, emotionally, and financially. Well the piper came calling today, and amen! By setting up the siuation this way, law enforcement can better control the situation and protect their own. First, the suspect is completely blindsided and out his element. Harsh? Yes. If a sheriff shows up at his residence with a warrant, and they aren't home, there is a good chance the suspect is now tipped off from a neighbor or family member that he is wanted. Also, some of these guys are violent, and I don't want one of our good guys that serve and protect being injured or killed in the line of duty. Sorry to get too deep, but maybe a different perspective.
