  • A Head Coaches Song

    I have said it before and I will say it again.

    Being a head coach in the NFL is a volatile occupation.

    Personally, I don't think the fans are any worse in St. Louis than in any other city with an NFL team. Most coaches are escorted off the field by an officer of the law in every stadium accross the country. Bernie M. probably sees more hate mail about Martz than Martz himself ever sees. I seriously doubt Martz has the time or inclination to sit around and read about what the fans think of him.

    I always liked Jim Mora Sr. He was a no BS coach and was not one to sugar coat things.

    I think he once said it best to the media and the fans alike.

    "You think you know, but you don't know, and you never will know"

    I have no doubt that is true. On the other hand, I think the reason we don't know is because coaches generally don't care what fans or the media think. It's a two-way street in my opinion. Most coaches grow up in this occupation. They know what it is like going in. It is nothing they have not seen their entire careers. If and when a coach begins to succomb to the reviews of the critics I think he has lost it.

    I'm not trying to justify it one way or the other. I'm simply stating my opinion. If we were to truly boil it all down, then this game of football means absolutely nothing in life. We live in a society where athletes playing a game are making millions more than hard working Americans, who risk their own lives, to protect the lives of not only these athletes but the citizens of this country. Making millions and profiting on the backs of hard working Americans over a game - Is that in itself not shameful?

    Yes being in the limelight as an NFL head coach is a volatile occupation. One in which you must cast the critics asside and do what you believe is right. I don't see it being an occupation for the bleeding heart type.

    A Head Coaches Song:

    I went to a garden party to reminisce with my old friends
    A chance to share old memories and play our songs again
    When I got to the garden party, they all knew my name
    No one recognized me, I didn't look the same

    But it's all right now
    I learned my lesson well
    You see, ya can't please everyone
    So ya got to please yourself

    People came from miles around, everyone was there
    Yoko brought her walrus, there was magic in the air
    An' over in the corner, much to my surprise
    Mr. Hughes hid in Dylan's shoes wearing his disguise

    But it's all right now
    I learned my lesson wel
    You see, ya can't please everyone
    So ya got to please yourself
    Lot-in-dah-dah-dah, lot-in-dah-dah-dah

    Played them all the old songs, thought that's why they came
    No one heard the music, we didn't look the same
    I said hello to "Mary Lou", she belongs to me
    When I sang a song about a honky-tonk, it was time to leave

    But it's all right now
    I learned my lesson well
    You see, ya can't please everyone
    So ya got to please yourself
    Lot-dah-dah-dah (Lot-dah-dah-dah)

    Someone opened up a closet door and out stepped Johnny B. Goode
    Playing guitar like a-ringin' a bell and lookin' like he should
    If you gotta play at garden parties, I wish you a lotta luck
    But if memories were all I sang, I'd rather drive a truck

    But it's all right now
    I learned my lesson well
    You see, ya can't please everyone
    So ya got to please yourself
    Lot-dah-dah-dah (Lot-dah-dah-dah)

    An' it's all right now, learned my lesson well
    You see, ya can't please everyone, so you got to please yourself

    "You think you know, but you don't know, and you never will know"
    Mora Sr. was right. However, there are some that will never believe it.
    The more things change, the more they stay the same.

      So I've read a couple more posts, about leaving the Rams fan that I saw, Goodbye, don't let the doorknow hit you where the good Lord split you. What's the definition of a fair-weather-fan? They are around when its convienant for them. So if the team is winning, or the weathers nice, and they got 2 know what I'm saying? Well I would like to say something to all those "fans" who are "done" with the Rams. Please become a Winers fan so I can dispise you more then kids and vegetables. We don't need your kind here, raining on our already dim day. We all know that the Rams are a very bad team, and that's not gonna change tomorrow. I have faith that the Rams are gonna be good sooner or later. And whenever that day comes, it will only make this that much better. Fanhood is not something you pack in a bag, and and pull is out when its convienant. To make a long story short, if you wanna leave, leave, but don't you dare comeback and act like you've been here the whole time. This isn't about the past, this is now. Want some, get some...GoRams

      Something to watch for - parents please read
      by UtterBlitz
      I have gotten a couple of these emails regarding this topic. I just wanted to put this out there for the parents that have not heard of this before. I know whip-its(sp?) were big back when I was a kid. It looks like there are more options now.


      Falcon, the maker of Dust-Off, is aware its product is abused in this fashion. It has posted information about inhalant abuse on its web site, and cans of Dust Off bear a label cautioning users against misuse of the product and carry this warning in large red block letters: "Inhalant abuse is illegal and can cause permanent injury or be fatal. Please use our product responsibly."

      Yet while it might be tempting to regard this threat as one limited to Dust-Off (and therefore as a danger that can be averted by banning a specific product from the home), the truth is a great number of teens and pre-teens routinely attempt to get high by abusing inhalants and solvents found in common household products. Dust-Off is just one of a thousand or more products that can abruptly end the life of someone foolishly looking for an inhalant high. The list of items that can be turned to this purpose is almost endless and includes such innocuous-looking goods as hair spray and aerosol whipped cream. Depending on how the intoxicant is taken in, the process is referred to as 'bagging' or 'huffing' ? bagging requires the substance be contained in a plastic or paper bag which the thrill-seeker then breathes from, while huffing involves either breathing directly from an aerosol or through a cloth soaked in solvent.

      Both bagging and huffing can, and have, proved fatal. Sudden death can result on the first try, making one's first time seeking this particular kick also one's last. That first time's being a killer isn't an exaggeration, either: 22% of all inhalant-abuse deaths occur among users who had not previously bagged or huffed. Suffocation, dangerous behavior, and aspiration account for 45% of inhalant abuse fatalities, with "sudden sniffing death" (fatal cardiac arrhythmia) causing the remaining 55%. Suffocation usually takes its toll through the victim's slipping into unconsciousness then dying of a lack of oxygen, but it can also happen through airway obstruction brought about through swelling caused by spraying certain agents into the mouth. Dangerous behavior-related deaths are those in which inhalant abuse cause the deceased to engage in risk-laden activities that bring about his demise: he drowns, jumps or falls from a high place, dies of exposure or hypothermia, is in (or on) a vehicle that he loses control of at high speed, or accidentally sets himself on fire (most inhalants are flammable). Death through aspiration of vomited materials comes about through an unconscious victim's protective airway reflexes being depressed by the chemicals involved. "Sudden sniffing death" is a simple way of saying the hydrocarbons being...

      Pet Peeves That Really Tick You Off!
      by RammieGirl
      I don't know about you guys but I have 2 things that really tick you off and that's being nice.

      1) Why do businesses give numbers out like 1-555-4My-Cars? That's obviously an example but give me the FRICKEN NUMBER, ya know!! I don't want to have to go and look at my phone and look at the number underneath the letters.... GRRRRRRR

      2) When I call a business with a question/concern all I want to do is talk to a HUMAN, is that too much to ask??? I get tired of pressing 3 for this and 6 for that and so on and then after all is said and done, I get disconnected. GRRRRRRRRR

      Okay, my soapbox is now tucked away in my closet for awhile, lol, this happens to me all the time and I was wondering if you guys have similar encounters or other ones that you want to share.

      I got this from the cards M-board

      Random thoughts from people 25-35 years old.

      -I wish Google Maps had an "Avoid Ghetto" routing option.

      -More often than not, when someone is telling me a story all I can
      think about is that I can't wait for them to finish so that I can tell
      my own story that's not only better, but also more directly involves me.

      -Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you
      realize you're wrong.

      -Have you ever been walking down the street and realized that you're
      going in the complete opposite direction of where you are supposed to
      be going? But instead of just turning a 180 and walking back in the direction
      from which you came, you have to first do something like check your
      watch or phone or make a grand arm gesture and mutter to yourself to
      ensure that no one in the surrounding area thinks you're crazy by
      randomly switching directions on the sidewalk.

      -That's enough, Nickelback.

      -I totally take back all those times I didn't want to nap when I was younger.

      -Is it just me, or are 80% of the people in the "people you may know"
      feature on Facebook people that I do know, but I deliberately choose
      not to be friends with?

      -Do you remember when you were a kid, playing Nintendo and it wouldn't
      work? You take the cartridge out, blow in it and that would magically
      fix the problem. Every kid in America did that, but how did we all
      know how to fix the problem? There was no internet or message boards
      or FAQ's. We just figured it out. Today's kids are soft.

      -Sometimes, I'll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and
      suddenly realize I had no idea what the f was going on when I first saw it.

      -I think everyone has a movie that they love so much, it actually
      becomes stressful to watch it with other people. I'll end up wasting
      90 minutes shiftily glancing around to confirm that everyone's
      laughing at the right parts, then making sure I laugh just a little bit
      harder (and a millisecond earlier) to prove that I'm still the only one
      who really, really gets it.

      -How the hell are you supposed to fold a fitted sheet?

      -I would rather try to carry 10 plastic grocery bags in each hand than
      take 2 trips to bring my groceries in.

      - I think part of a best friend's job should be to immediately clear
      your computer history if you die.

      -The only time I look forward to a red light is when I'm trying to finish a text.

      - A recent study has shown that playing beer pong contributes to the
      spread of mono and the flu. Yeah, if you suck at it.

      - LOL has gone from meaning, "laugh out loud" to "I have nothing else to say".

      Fun with Wiretapping II
      by AvengerRam_old
      My team of spies is at it again. This time, they've tapped into several electronic voice mail systems. Here's what they found.

      Mike Martz's office telepone (Sunday, August 22, 2004)

      "Hello, this is Coach Martz. If this is anyone other than Brenda Warner or Terry Bradshaw, please leave a message at the tone." Beeeeep!

      "Hey, Mike. This is Dick. Listen, I'm really looking forward to our scrimmage tomorrow. Should be lots of fun. I really think we should try to cut down on injuries, though, so let's treat this like a scrimmage, okay? Thanks, Mike."

      Gunther Cunningham's office telephone (5 minutes later)

      "Hello, this is Head Coa... er... Defensive Coordinator Cunningham. I'm not here, please leave a message." Beeep!

      "Damnit Gunther, I told you to change that message! Okay, I've set the trap. Now I want you to blitz and blitz and blitz until we can't blitz any more! That "genius" Martz won't know what hit him! Bwahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!"

      Orlando Pace's home telephone

      Um... yeah... um... this is the big O. I can't come to phone right now because I'm eating. If this is the pizza guy, I'll take the usual, unless you have the big truck tonight... then I'll take two. Otherwise, leave a message." Beeeep!

      "Orlando? This is Marc. Pleeeeeeeeeeeease come back! Please please please please please!!!! I'm getting killed here! Pleeeeeeease! I'll buy you as many doughnuts as you want! Pleeeeeeeeeeease!!!!!!!!!!"

      And finally... somewhere in St. Louis, Monday night..."

      "This is the 24 hours suicide hotline. All our counselors are busy, please stay on the line or press 1 to leave a message"*** Beeeep!"

      " the Rams.... th...they...l..l...lost a pr...preaseaon!!!! I't go on!!!!!" BLAM!!!!!

      ***Okay, so no suicide hotline would have ask people to leave a message... its a parody!!!!
