    Default A....um....texting champion?

    I'm speechless. There was a championship held to determine the fastest text messenger. What a shock, a teenage girl won.

    Why not just buy a service for a few bucks that allows the daughters to text almost as much as they want during a month? Or what the hell do I know, maybe you don't have those in the states?

    We do, I guess almost as much as they want isn't enough for these girls.
    A little more volume in the headphones please.

    What's more of an accomplishment, being a Text Message champion or a Rock, Paper, Scissor's Champion? Both are in the news. And no sense stopping there with the absurdity, ESPN is covering the Rock, Paper, Scissor Championsip next month in Vegas.

    Maybe that imbicile Joe Morgan can be the analyst....."watch this, see how he throws down a fist? That's the rock. You see that? That's the rock, John. The rock is the perfect move against the scissors. You know why that is, John? Because rocks can crush scissors. If you watch closely on the replay you can see he throws down a fist, indicating he's using the rock. Do you see that, John?
