I Would Rather Have a Colonoscopy Than Lose Chip Kelly

Kim Hastings Humor Leave a Comment

About seven years ago a doctor told me that I should have a colonoscopy pretty soon.  Since soon is subjective I haven’t had one done yet.

If she is walking around in there I don’t want to know.Today, though, is a unique day.  I have espn.com on auto refresh to stay up to date on any facts.  I have a… ahem… competing site on auto refresh to stay up to date on any rumors.  I’m slowly driving myself crazy.  And it’s all because of a man that I’ve never met.

 

You see, fans around the country think that we love Chip because he wins.  Heck yeah, that’s part of it.  Who wants to be mediocre (would someone turn off that infernal barking)?  They think that we love Chip in spite of his peculiarities.  Things like closed practices, abrupt answers to stupid questions, giving short shrift to those who believe because they are donors that he should carry their golf clubs.

They are wrong.  Oregonians (and Duck fans smart enough to be Duck fans even if they live outside of Oregon) are a peculiar lot ourselves.  We love Chip because of his peculiarities.  We love his unique brand of courtliness.

We love his play cards.

We love going for two.

We love everything about Duck football right now.

That’s why I have this annual introspective day.  What can I do to keep the winning alive?  Could I offer to come to Chip’s house sometime this summer and varnish his deck?  Or maybe he wants  something a bit more…personal…painful.  Say the word Chip, and I will let a doctor, who hasn’t even taken me to dinner, perform medical acts of infinite humiliation on my person.

Just don’t leave me.

Our 32 rules can be summarized to this: 1) be polite and respectful, 2) keep it clean, and 3) no reference of any kind to politics. Easy-peasy!

Take note though, there are NO STRIKES, NO WARNINGS, and NO SLACK given. Violate the rules and you are gone, as this is what the 99% who post superb comments want. (The Ban could be for weeks, months or permanent) For the less than 1% out there who do not have impulse-control … as you write your comment that violates our rules, ask yourself, “is this worth getting banned over?”

FishDuck members….we got your back.  No Trolls Allowed!
