Vikings fire Childress, hire “Major Dad”


On Monday, the Minnesota Vikings fired head coach Brad Childress following Sunday’s 31-3 loss to their division rival, Green Bay Packers.  Last season, Childress led the Vikings to within a field goal from going to the Super Bowl.

This is Brad Childress with is famous "Okay, I'll go pack up my office" look.

The team decided not to tell quarterback, Brett Favre, about Childress’ departure, and put Favre on an information lockdown.  On Monday, Vikings owner Zygi Wilf told reporters, “It is important not to upset Brett (Favre) with only six games left in the season.  He does not deal with change very well.  We all saw what happened when he left Green Bay.  We’re just trying to minimize the damage.  His old body can’t handle this kind of news.”

Tuesday afternoon, in an attempt to get a coach in place without Favre noticing, the Minnesota Vikings hired former “Major Dad” TV star, Gerald McRaney, as Childress’ replacement.

It's uncanny. It's like Brad Childress with a George W. Bush grin.

Wilf told reporters, “The decision was easy.  I mean, look at him.  He looks exactly like Brad (Childress).  Just slap some glasses on him and we’re good to go.”

When asked about Favre possibly noticing the age difference between McRaney and Childress, offensive coordinator Darrel Bevell said, “It’s only a 9 year difference.  Sure “Major Dad” looks a bit older than Chilly, but Favre’s eyes also aren’t what they used to be.  Look at his 17 interceptions this year.  He’s throwing balls to everyone.  If I had a dollar for every time Brett has come to me this season and said ‘sorry coach, thought it was one of our guys’, I’d be able to buy like 17 McDonald’s double-cheeseburgers.”

"Brett didn’t seem to notice...He gave a very dramatic and confused stare...After about two minutes he shrugged and kept walking." (Click to Enlarge)

Favre and McRaney met for the first time Wednesday morning in the Vikings locker room.  A team representative said, “It was great.  McRaney played it so casual.  I haven’t seen him act this well in years.  Brett didn’t seem to notice the difference, but gave us a close scare when they first crossed paths.  He stopped and gave a very dramatic and confused stare into the distance.  You know, kinda like they do on soap operas.  After about two minutes he shrugged and kept walking.  No harm done and we’re happy to have ‘Major Dad’ in the locker room.”

McRaney has yet to speak out about his new job, but a close family friend told reporters that, “He’s just happy to have steady work and hopefully help out the Vikings.  Gerald has always had a soft spot for charities.”

Justin Bieber has Lego hair


Many celebrities have attempted it.  One manchild has perfected it.  Ladies and gentlemen…Justin Bieber has amazing Lego hair.

Look at it...his head is like a dipped cone from Dairy Queen. A perfectly molded shell of hair.

Justin Bieber has done what Zac Effron, Pete Wentz, and the entire Kennedy family failed to do.  Justin Bieber has transformed this hideous hairstyle into a mainstream pop culture phenomenon.  While the cut is annoying and awful, not since the actual Lego people has this hairstyle been pulled off so effortlessly.

The “Bieber Cap” has attracted a lot of celebrity attention recently.  A few of these celebrities have even tried to sport this questionable look, including:

New England Patriots quarterback, Tom Brady.

Close to perfection, however Tammy...I mean Tom, falls just a little bit short on the execution.

 

Juno star, Ellen Page

Other than the slight flaw in the hair, I really don't see the difference between Bieber and Page. They should date.

 

Friends star, David Schwimmer

Nice try Ross. It's like he's attempting the "Bieber Cap" and Farrah Fawcett feather hair all at once.

 

The Beatles

John, Ringo and Paul almost have it. George is way off. This is clearly a case of "Beatles did it first, Bieber did it best".

 

ABC News Anchor, Ted Koppel

Wow...he's old.

I have nothing else to offer you on the subject, and I am not trying to add to the growing “Bieber Fever”.  I just thought I’d bring this to your attention so that you can start searching for “Bieber Cap” sightings of your own.  Once again, Justin Bieber has Lego hair.  Thoughts?

Also, if you notice the “Bieber Cap” on any other celebrities…please let me know.  Please know that the official term for this Lego-like hairstyle is indeed the “Bieber Cap”.  You heard it here first, and yes, you can use it.  If you’ve heard it elsewhere then tell me and I’ll see if I care or not.
