The Pussyfication of AmericaSubmitted by wacko bird on Sun, 10/20/2013 - 20:49
A process, in which over a period of time, someone, or a group of people, develops more and more qualities of being a total pussy.
So I sat down to watch an NFL game this afternoon. Meh, unwatchable.
Time was when you could enjoy seeing a wideout get separated from the ball by a violent DB hit. Those were the days! Legends were made by QBs who stood in the pocket just long enough to get a pass off just before a linebacker delivered his punishment. Today, DBs who do anything more than gently push a receiver out of bounds are flagged for 15, and later in the week fined thousands of dollars by the pussy commish. Lay a hand on a QB and a defensive player is flagged, fined and probably suspended for more games. The QBs know it too. They goad the defense into contact then turn and whine to the officials, inevitably drawing flags.
Gone are the great defenses, strong enough to carry teams into the playoffs. Nope, now it's backyard pitch and catch, no contact, run up the score "football". May as we'll tie flags to their hips and rename the league the PFL.
The NBA went soft years ago. During the glory days, back in the 70's and 80's, any player who took a crunch time sprint down the lane knew he was gonna pay the price. Real men shook it off, stood at the foul line and dropped the two they earned the hard way. Today, if a big takes out a driving point guard he's facing ejection, fines and multi game suspensions. Can you say PBA?
And by the way, this is NOT the doing of the boomers! No siree. Sure, we might be responsible for socialist America, but we didn't pussify this nation!
Nope, you didn't see us placing plastic yellow cones in the street, with signs saying "Child at Play". We're not the ones who put helmets on our kids before we'd let 'em ride their tricycles in the cul-de-sac.
Nope, we were perfectly willing to let our kids run like we did. We told you how we nailed roller skates to two-by-fours, inventing skateboards, and bravely rode them down asphalt hills, avoiding oncoming traffic by veering into curbs and dive rolling into grass, with a good chance we'd roll through dog shit 'cause we also let our animals roam free in the neighborhood and do their business wherever nature called. And BTW if a kid got bit by a dog he'd kick the shit out of the animal to teach it not to mess with him, not go home and whine to Mommy and have her call the SPCA.
Nope, the pussyfication of America stands squarely on the shoulders of the under 50 generations. They've pussyfied this nation! They with their whiney kids with their knee pads and their helmets and their PFL and PBA.
Fuckin NFL officials. Fuckin pussies.
