We do chicken, A’ight

In pop culture on January 24, 2011 at 5:50 pm

The original hype man is back! Yeaaaaaaaaaa boiiiiiiiiiiiiii

Or not. It appears that Flava Flav has declared war on the Colonel, opening Flava’a Fried Chicken in the notorious fried chicken “hotbed” of Clinton, Iowa.

All 6 of the black residents of Clinton were said to be ecstatic.

According to the Huffington Post, “Rapper and reality TV star Flavor Flav is bringing the flavor of chicken to Iowa.

Flav’s Fried Chicken opens Monday in Clinton, Iowa. Flav has been there preparing for the launch and told the Clinton Herald he’ll visit often for promotions and even work the fryer. He has a culinary degree and restaurant experience.”

Now, I’m no expert, but it would appear that Flav and his partners are really banking on his name bringing them the business. Don’t believe me? Look where they’ve placed their first restaurant:

Watch here as Flava does what he does best when giving an “interview” about the new business:

Seriously, Flava Flav? What’s next, you going to put out a line of liquors? You are seriously putting minorities back 100 years buddy.

(editors note: too late! According to HipHopDX, Flav already has a planned line of liquors coming out 1st Q 2011)

Our Man of the Year 2010

In pop culture, Sports on January 5, 2011 at 8:20 pm

(editors note: Yes, we know it’s January 5th…piss off)

What an incredible year for news 2010 turned out to be! From Volcanos to earthquakes, oil spills to trapped miners, this year gave us all poignant moments we will not soon forget.

And through it all, one man’s star has shone the brightest through the darkness. Without further ado, we give you the Repo’s Delight Man of the Year, Mark Zuckerb…

Just kidding. We are perfectly happy to let Time Magazine (way to poop on that award, guys) give that bozo their award. If I was looking to honor someone whose only goal in life is to try to figure out away to capitalize off our privacy, I would have honored George Bush and Dick Cheney every year from 2000 to 2008.

But I digress…

Every man has a calling, and in these tough economic times, America needs a hero. An everyman kids can look up to. A “mans” man who inspires us with the feeling of “if he can do it, so can I”. Instant inspiration. For that reason, Repo’s Delight is truly proud to present our first ever man of the year (drumroll, please….) Brian Scalabrine!

Oh HELL YES! Brian Scalabrine is the perfect example for a struggling America. He is the posterchild for accomplishing more with less. Don’t believe me? Watch these video “highlights” of this professional basketball player:

“You must be crazy, Repo!” is probably the first thing that pops into your head. Now,please bear with me. Let’s consider that this 6’9″ mountain of mayonnaise has an NBA championship ring and has earned more than $18 MILLIONS DOLLARS in his career.

Exactly.

That’s right, this gentleman, who might not even be picked up in a game at the YMCA, is a millionaire 18 times over!!! He has been in the league for nearly 10 years and his highlight video is a gif. He is best known for his similarity to Jackie Moon.

But I can think of at least 18 million reasons why he wins our vote. Man of the Year? Shoot, he should be Man of the Decade!

Did Usher Rip-off one of 2010’s Biggest Hits??

In pop culture on December 29, 2010 at 6:21 pm

Some philosophers will argue that there are no original thoughts in this world. Normally, we here at Repo’s Delight would argue that those philosophers should receive 3 quick shots to the scrotum. However, after coming across this recent video and post at Geekosystem.com, we may need to change our tune. Watch as R&B singer Usher’s smash club hit “OMG” is compared to a nearly 3-year-old clip of Homer singing on the Simpsons. Coincidence?

Biggest Fantasy Football Duds 2010 edition

In pop culture, Sports on December 10, 2010 at 9:15 pm

Ah what a year! After running two under-achieving fantasy squads this year, the Repoman knows firsthand the pain associated with watching your number 1 WR or stud RB perform like a ballerina in pads. What about the #1 QB knocked out for the season early? Trust me, your pain is my pain.

After reading this piece written TheMikePhillips, the RepoMan felt inspired to present his first annual Fantasy “You Drafted Joe Flacco 5th Overall?” Fail Awards. Without further ado, let the relive the agony in all its infamy…

Quarterbacks

Donovan McNabb ~ Washington: How bad has McNabb been this year? He was actually benched at the end of a close game for Rex (gasp)Grossman! 12TD vs 15 INT, and a legion of peeved owners who thought they were getting a steal drafting this bum in the mid to late rounds. Even his momma took his Chunky Soup back

Kevin Kolb ~ Philadelphia: the “chosen one” struggled early on after being anointed the starter. Injured early on, quickly lost his job to Mike Vick. A mid-season injury to Vick gave Kolb the chance to win his job back, but pedestrian numbers quickly resulted in Vick as the starter. Kolb’s game is so boring that most people who drafted him as a sleeper now deny ever having heard of him.

Brett Favre ~ Minnesota: Favre has never been right this year. Blame it on Brad Childress and their power struggle, or Jenn Sterger and the infamous “pee-pee gate”, but 10 TDs and 18 INTs are hardly overwhelming numbers. May want to lay of the Viagra, never send a text pic again, zip up his Wranglers and ride off into the sunset. He’s done,

Running Backs

Ronnie Brown ~ Miami: 3 TDs, ZERO 100 yard games in 2010. I think Ronnie may be channeling another famous Brown on the gridiron…

Reggie Bush ~ New Orleans: Bush is the only backup RB in the league that is drafted 100% of the time based on his potential to put up #1 RB stats, especially in PPR leagues. O TDs in 2010. Rumor has it that President Obama redid his health care plan to make sure that Bush would have coverage because the Saints won’t cover him. Premiums are too high. Looks like Kim Khardashian jumped ship at the right time.

Shonn Greene ~ NY Jets: 1TD, 3 fumbles, 600 yards…not exactly the stats owners were expecting when they took this player in the early/mid rounds. The man expected to turn LT from Hall-of-Famer to 3rd down back, Greene has been arguably the biggest let down at the RB position of 2010.

Wide Receivers

Brandon Marshall~Miami Dolphins : With only 1 TD in 2010 and only two 100 yard games this year, it’s fitting that he plays in south Florida because his game has definitely been MIA.

Steve Smith ~ Carolina: 498 yards, 2TDs, 2 Fumbles. Not exactly #1 WR numbers. With the QB woes in Carolina continuing, this is definitely the “wrong” Steve Smith to have on your roster.

Michael Crabtree ~ San Francisco: Stats are just ok (41 catches, 554 Yds, 5 TDs) but “CrapTree” was the flavor of draft day, with many people picking him in the 1st 3 rounds. Has a ton of upside, but you got very little if you reached for this guy in keeper leagues this season

We won’t cover TE(since most leagues replace with ‘flex’ player anyway), K(since no one cares) and DST (because this is always a crap shoot). i’m sure you could compile a list with players I didn’t even consider, but this is a good starting point.

To those whose season’s are still going strong, congrats. Regardless of what everyone in your league says, You’ve earned it. For the rest of us, welcome back to the real world. You can now go back to watching football for pleasure again.
