Dallas sports talk radio host Norm Hitzges, whom I imagine has a belt buckle the size of my foot and a ten gallon that could hide a boner, went on a bit of a rant against the hometown team today. It started off a little soft, but ended on a high note as Norm here got more lathered up as he went on and morphed into a poor man’s Jim Ross sans the Bells Palsy:
“Doesn’t it hurt to keep giving guys like Josh Brent and Joseph Randle and Greg Hardy and ad nauseam chances to play again and they laugh at you? They take your money and shoot you a freakin’ finger every week? Where the hell is your soul Jerry? Where the hell is it? Do you not care that everybody laughs like crazy at your football team? It’s one thing to lose, it’s another thing to lose when you’ve already sacrificed your damn soul.
“Get your butt down to the locker room Jerry and you discipline. You go locker to locker and tell Cole Beasley, ‘Shove that phone as far up as it goes baby. You’re off Twitter.’ And, ‘Dez, you do that again we are going to have to a serious monetary talk pal, and I don’t care if I have to discipline you.’ Or Hardy, or name it. Pick anybody else who steps out of line, ‘I can lose without you guys.’
“This isn’t a seven-game losing streak. This is a surrender of your freakin’ soul.”
Remember, folks, it could always be worse. You could be a Cowboys fan.
*I’ve now had the pleasure of being on Dukes’ show multiple times over the years, likely as a result of that post way back when. Unlike Hitzgesrekkeskeksss’, Dukes’ rant came from the heart and wasn’t an appeal to go viral.
