Boy the things some people put on Twitter! Senator John McCain's daughter the now famous blogger Meghan McCain (which some people misspell as "Megan McCain")just tweeted this:

my hotel has this amazing pool but I've been too paranoid 2 use it cause I don't want any pics of my juicy booty in a bikini on the internet

I couldn't stop laughing. Meghan should let it all hangout - so to speak. She's a great looking woman. She may be surprised to learn that she's better looking than Michelle Nunes and Stacy Burnes (In this video from a Bauer's Limousine Super Bowl Party I attended in Miami two years ago):

..And they don't have her tush!

After I stopped laughing, I wondered if someone had scored such a photo of McCain's rear and placed it online; the answer's no so her wish is intact. But this picture of her is a cool one:

Someone should tell Meghan the brothas (black men like me) love a juicy booty!  It's also good to learn that Meghan herself thinks her butt's juicy!

Lou Holtz says Notre Dame's Charlie Weis is "most underrated"

It's College Football Gameday and I'm watching ESPN's Lou Holtz make the case that Notre Dame's Charle Weis is the most underrated coach in college football. Now, remember this is the same guy who said Notre Dame would play in the BCS Championship.

Holtz colleague, the former Washington Redskin Mark May went ballistic, and rightly so.

Sure, Weis generates good schemes, but if he were the great coach and "most underrated" in college football he would not have lost 15 games in the last two years. Weis record between 2007 and 2008 is 9 wins and 15 losses, going 3 and 9 in 2007.

Weis' record over the last two years is so bad 2007 and 2008 aren't even mentioned in Coach Weis' on profile on the Notre Dame website.

Who's really underrated? Cal Coach Jeff Tedford, who's Golden Bears take on Maryland today. Of course, being a Cal graduate, I'm biased, but I'll put Coach Tedford's 59 and 30 record against Coach Weis' 29 and 21 record any day.

Notre Dame plays Nevada this afternoon and for the first time in school history.  Cal takes on Maryland in this evening's game at Memorial Stadium in Berkeley.

LeGarrette Blount punch reveals America's fear of talking about race

What I find really infuriating about the "LeGarrette Blount punch" issue, where Oregon running back LeGarrette Blount punched Boise State Defensive End Byron Hout after Thursday night's Oregon v. Boise State football game, is the number of people who can't look at the video or the issue and agree to talk about race in a constructive way.

I've found there are two categories of readers:

1) People who want to attack any mention of race.
2) People who have to mention something racially negative, for example stating that I'm trying to give LeGarrette Blount a reason not to feel bad about what he did because I'm just a black person defending an African American male.

Both are wrong.

My motivation for writing was the vast number of blogs speculating that LeGarrette Blount's motivation for punching Byron Hout was because Hout may have said something racist.

Note the word may.

What compounds the problem is that not one of the people - Blount, Hout, or either coach - is saying what was actually said. So we have this huge void created by their silence right at the moment when America wants the void filled.

It's not happening.

What I'd like to see is for America to evolve into a country that doesn't shy away from a good dialogue about race if only to make sure race has nothing to do with an issue. We're all different by appearance, but via talking and sharing we realize that we're really all the same.

And for the record, again, I don't think what LeGarrette Blount did was right and his suspension for the season was just. Even if it's revaled that racist language was used, it doesn't let him off the hook, but it does cast a dark shadow on the character of those who made the comments.

If Hout did this, he should be punished but I think he should be publicly reprimanded just for trash talking, period.
