Sidney Rice Has Surgery

Now the Vikings look even more vulnerable than they did before Favre returned, and they've GOT #4 there.

Favre and Rice were both injured in last year's NFC Championship loss vs. the New Orleans Saints. Rice opted against offseason surgery. He's been on the Physically Unable to Perform list this offseason, and running drills and routes on the sideline, unable to go full speed because he "feels a little pain".

He finally decided to have the surgery, which will keep him out through the first six weeks of the regular season. Fellow wideout Percy Harvin is suffering from a scary spell which is believed to be related to his migraines and although he's a threat to be a big-time contributor when healthy, nobody knows how healthy he will be at any given snap. The Vikings are left with a familiar face for Favre... but an unfamiliar face to the league the past few years, in Javon Walker. It's not a foregone conclusion, but the odds highly favor Rice and Harvin are both significantly better than Walker.

Sorry Adrian Peterson, but it looks like you're going to have to be the workload for the Vikings, because the passing game really isn't going to exist.

Tattoos And The Idiots Who Have Them

More and more in recent weeks, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. I’ve got no problems with people getting tattoos, so long as they actually have some kind of meaning to the person other than “I paid for it” or “it’s on me now so that’s what it means to me” or “it looked awesome”. More and more I see people tattooing the most random things to their body, most people covering their body with the nonsense… and more and more, I’ve found myself entirely too devoted to bashing tattoos. Thank a friend via Twitter recently for showing me a picture of some idiot tattooing stars up and down the side of his face. This began my rant against face tattoos. If you’re in a profession or religion where it’s deemed appropriate, fine… tribal tattoos don’t necessarily cause this reaction for me. I also would never have the balls to call Mike Tyson a fool for tattooing his face. But if you’re just a run-of-the-mill Joe… you shouldn’t be tattooing your face with anything.

Track Title: Fuck You Artist: Cee-Lo Green Thoughts: This song is just... incredible. Cee-Lo is an amazing artist, and this track continues to display that. Lyrically, he says everything that needs to be said, and his vocal game is crazy. Great beat, catchy as hell... ...FUCK YOOUUUUUUUU! OOOO-OO-OOOOOOOOO!
