OTC “Best Of” February/March 2009

Here are a collection of memorable quotes from my February and March Off The Couch columns — some with freshened-up comments from your favorite OTC columnist. I hope you enjoy the stroll down memory lane as much as I. If so, let me know and I and I’ll crank out a few more of these this week.

    Clemente came out a few months ago and said that no one on KU’s bench said anything racist towards him (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/2009/writers/luke_winn/09/10/denis.clemente/index.html?eref=T1). Tim Fitzgerald is the internet version of KK. Remember Gary Patterson was signed, sealed, and delivered to KSU. Why 810 continues to feature him is beyond me…

    Thanks Greg! Now will you be posting a “Best of Comments” section as well?


    MrO, The talented readers of this space provide that on a daily basis.

    DPW is dead on above. I can not stand Tim Fitzgerald…total blowhard. He posts on gopowercat ‘it’s Patterson’ and sends the Cat fans in to a frenzy. Uh, whoops, it was all BS!! And to make matters worse, a majority of the subscribers on gopowercat defended him afterwards. I couldn’t believe it. People were posting stuff like ‘if Fitz posted it, you know it must have been true. Patterson must have backed out. Fitz has legit sources’. Right. BS.

    Never liked old Fitz since I met him while a student in Manhattan. He told me at So Long Saloon that POS former LB Matt Butler was a great player. You guys remember him, right? LOL. Fitz sucks…and I’m a K-State fan!!

    To this day, Mike Anderson still doesn’t get enough credit for how good of a coach he is. Greg, I’d also enjoy you recapping how KK and Clinker were just positive Anderson was leaving MU for greener pastures and more money. They were both made to look like the big time jackoffs that they are.

    I think it would easier to write what KK gets right then wrong.

    Greg, reading this reminds me just how glad I am to have you back at the keyboard. My readership of other sites (Star, OWH, etc.), however, suffers since I can read all the good stuff here.

    Why no mention of the crow people had to eat due to our Huskers?

    Greg, how about a “best of KK and Mad Jack 2009?” Their material alone could fill a column.

    Does anyone remember how on SNL they had the vote about if they would allow Andy Kaufman on the show. Put up a 1-800 number. And he lost. Can’t we do the same with JoJo? Have a vote to see how many wants him banned. Like Survivor you know he would be the first one voted off.

    We definitely need some more of these this week, Greg.

    No SOFA Awards????

    How about a list of the stories that KK said “There is a lot more to come out on this story” then nothing else ever came out. I remember the Monday after KU finally beat KSU in football. KK spent the first 30 minutes talking about the tragic (and it was/is a tragic) double decker KSU bus crash that killed 1-2 people. KK talked about all this other stuff that this was going to lead to. And that there is so much more to come out. Never heard another peep.

    Thought Last Word did something close at the 200 mark, I also vote for SOFA awards.

    Regarding Len Dawson and how little effort he puts into his job: The day Allard Baird was fired Lenny called him “Allan Baird.” I can see my wife doing that but not a sportscaster who had to report about him for years.

    guys dont have much time but here are some of my
    favorite qoutes from comments in 2009

    GAVIN: “I blog here at midnite on Saturday
    nites because my mom locks me in the basement
    and it’s either this or playing star wars video
    games. Also, I find young guys attractive”

    MR. OLATHE: “I am from the exciting and growing
    city of Olathe where people have no teeth and
    they chew tobacco. I don’t have a girlfriend
    since time warner shut off the internet to my
    parents house. So instead, I read magazines and
    put them under my bed so my grandma won’t find

    CRAIG: “i LOVE that young stuff. I can’t get
    enough of it. Even tiger’s jealous of my
    black book. Charlie Sheen wishes he had the
    cell numbers I have. And noone in this town..
    even grunny, get the hot women I get”

    RICK: “I got so excited this christmas. Santa
    came by and left the new Topps baseball card
    pack of new players and we opened them up
    while I played GUITAR HERO on christmas day.
    It doesn’t get any better than this!”

    UNCLE DICK: “i’m funnier than howie mandel.
    My jokes are better…I have more hair…and
    i only use a gallon of hand sanitizer a day
    to keep the germies off my body.”

    JOJO: Hey..I’m headed to thailand for the
    holidays. Hear they’ve got some hot hot girls”

    Jack: “its one of the greatest movies in history.
    It’s funny.its a blockbuster. its got everything.
    It rates right up there with “waterworld”

    Tony: “Hey you corny dogs. I traveled down
    Independence Avenune last night needing a
    little help. Know what I mean. I came across
    this hot chick who reminded me of funkhousers
    wife. She was short. Fat. NO shoes. But for
    $10 what do you expect. Especially in this
    decrepit/recession hit/low life town like kc”


    GH: If you’re going to impersonate me, please do it w/o using my “greg” login. Not a tough rule to follow, okay? Much appreciated.

    It’s funny how crimson-and-blue-bias weighs peoples’ memories around here. There were two incidents with UK2 and Clemente. One involved Morningstar trying to fight through a pic and he DID extend a closed fist discretely into Clemente’s groin/stomach. If full speed view, I wouldn’t call it a punch, but it was what it was. Reed, shortly thereafter, did an overly aggressive butt into the groin free throw line screen-out of Clemente after a free throw shortly after. He was trying to dig Clemente for the previous push delivered to Morningstar. You don’t make contact 352e that 5n a free throw line screen out unless you are trying to deliver a message.

    And I don’t know about any racial slurs, but I CAN believe the part about a uk2 student thinking a PR native requires a Green Card. There are new levels of dumb there.
