Angry Ward Wednesday: Let Odell Beckham Play vs Vikings

WEST PALM BEACH, FL – It’s two days before Christmas. I think most people out there in MTM-land have checked out and/or taken off for their family holiday celebrations. Not gonna sweat this one today. It’s anything but sweeps week. Let’s have at it.

They Might Be Giants. It’s well-documented here that I am a diehard Minnesota Vikings fan.(If you pull for this team there is no other way to describe yourself, as the Vikes diehard all the time.) So you would think that I would be thrilled at the prospect of Minnesota facing the Giants this week in a possible playoff-clinching game, sans one of the best receivers in the league… but you’d be wrong. I don’t think the Giants can beat Minnesota with or without OBJ this coming Sunday night. Just let him play. Otherwise, it’s not fair. Hakeem Nicks can’t even stand, let alone run. Tom Coughlin routinely beats him in the 50-yard dash in practice, same way he constantly beats JPP at Rock, Paper, Scissor.

And here are my thoughts on the Giants mess re the great piece by FSA yesterday:

I haven’t heard all of the follow up on the crap the Panthers were up to, but none of it surprises me. I think a key thing you brought up is Beckham’s age and the lack of support/leadership from Manning and Coughlin. Nuts.

Y’know what? After self-quoting and the pool beckoning… I’m outta here!

Merry Christmas!

Angry Ward, who has admirers at the New York Times, is the quintessential angry sports fan but for one exception... he's flat-out funny. And the angrier he gets, the more amusing his work becomes. Psychiatrists say, "Angry Ward's 'anger' is a direct result of "Bronx/Mets syndrome: growing up in the Bronx as a Mets fan." As if that weren't enough, his Minnesota North Stars abandoned him for Dallas, forcing him to embrace The Wild the way Nancy Pelosi embraces Mitch McConnell at charity events. And while his Vikings only tease him with success, his Golden State Warriors actually win these days. A-Dubya is MTM's longest-tenured indentured servant, its Larry David and quite simply, "The Franchise." (Junoir Blaber disputes this). Vent, curse and giggle with him on Angry Ward Wednesdays.
