According to jerryd:
"You know, I stopped myself from saying something..."
(jerryd means WRITING something, folks)
"There's nothing more pathetic than a grown man with no dignity and respect for himself to feel like he has to win people back over with above post."
(jerryd is wrong here, folks...I don't feel like I have to win people back over [or that I had already evidently at some point won them over] with the above post...or that that post would do anything except perhaps turn people on to excellent radio journalism that they may not have known of. I'll promote N.P.R. any chance I get. One of the above N.P.R. pieces is negative about Memphis, so I don't understand the jerryd logic of how that would "...win people back over...".)
"You disliked Memphis then, dislike them now. All season long he just wouldn't shut his fucking mouth up about how bad Memphis was and how good Ole Miss is."
Once again, jerryd is wrong. I never wrote or said anything about disliking Memphis. I wrote about disliking that John Calapari is such a pice of shit that when Memphis State was denied entry to the S.E.C., he backed out of the basketball series with Ole Miss that has been going on longer than he has been alive and that the Rebels have a victory margin over the Tigers in. jerryd can't show that I wrote that I disliked Memphis, because I didn't. He also can't back up another of his claims about me: "All season long he just wouldn't shut his fucking mouth up about how bad Memphis was and how good Ole Miss is."
I never wrote anything about the Tigers being bad. Never. Nor did I write anything about how good the Rebels are. I know how good Memphis State is in basketball and that Ole Miss only occasionally makes it into the middle rounds of the N.C.A.A. tourney. I'm one of the few here who has actually been a student at Memphis State, owned Memphis State season basketball tickets and seen the Tigers play both U.C.L.A. and U.S.C. from the fifth row.
These days I would expect Memphis State to almost always beat Ole Miss...but then again, Ole Miss did play Tennessee a lot closer in Knoxville than Memphis State did in Memphis and the Rebels whipped Mississippi State, who gave the Memphis State Tigers all they wanted.
jerryd is also wrong with the "All season long..." part.
The jerryd flailing about continues:
"Now he's saying Memphis will win."
Well...I never said, or wrote, that they wouldn't. I thought they would win the national championship. I didn't want Calapari to, because of his being such a pussy about his school not having the goods to be accepted into the S.E.C., but then I read this Commercial Appeal story about Joey Dorsey having little contact with his father. http://www.commercialappeal.com/news/2008/apr/03/overdue-hug-cant-heal -hurt-for-dorsey/
My father abandoned my mother before I was born, and it bothers me every day (Some of you may know my brother, Memphis filmmaker Mike McCarthy, who made a movie about the episode, Teenage Tupelo.
). When I read about Dorsey and his father, I wanted the Tigers to win.
Then, jerryd really gets prissy:
"I'm no english major, but i'm pretty sure just one "about" will work for the above sentence.
Learn to write, douchebag."
Folks, I won't list all the assaults jerryd made on English in his posting on this thread...just one to show how he should stop and think before flowing across the keyboard:
Above in this thread, jerryd wrote:
"I know what your saying..."
jerryd, the correct spelling is "you're" (not your).
Learn to write, left-holding-the-douchebag.
