Okay, we all fucking love Jim Henderson. Hell, this mighty fine blog's named after his most famous radio call. But did you fucking READ his commentary following the Saints-Dolphins game? Did ya fucking READ IT!?!?
The voice of the goddamn Saints, a man whom I admire greatly, has done the unthinkable: he used two words that rhyme with "Schmuper Schmowl" at the conclusion of his commentary.
I can think of only three logical explanations here...
1. Jim, so overcome in the moment, lost his train of thought and decided to drink the Message Board Guy (copyright Grandmaster Wang) Kool-Aid and suddenly think the '09 Saints could beat the '85 Bears and the '00 Ravens COMBINED.
2. Jim is beginning to show the early signs of dementia.
3. His boss, a New Orleanian by birth who roots for the Pittsburgh "fucking" Steelers (cough**bandwagoner**cough), a man who pissed on Destiny's shoes during the magical 2006 season by helping to come up with the "Black and Gold to the Super Bowl" promos that ran on Channel 4 BEFORE THE FUCKING NFC TITLE GAME, asked him to put "Schmuper Schmowl" at the end of the commentary in a misguided attempt to throw some kind off jinx on the Saints.
Okay, I'm hoping (and betting) that it's Option A. But still...really, Jim? WTF, man? You've been around the block too many goddamn times for this, sir. This is...fuck, I don't even know what to call it. Maybe you got bored. Maybe you needed something else to say instead of a simple "let's enjoy the ride" because it's been said already, I don't know. What I do know is that you don't go up to a pitcher in the midst of a perfect game and tell him how amazing he's looking striking everybody out and remind him what's at stake.
Fuck's sake, Jim!!!!!
