NO ARGUMENT HERE

Dave Barry – unfair and wrong

Dave Barry should be ashamed!

Dave Barry should be ashamed, but because Dave Barry is wrong, apparently about everything, his attempts to be ashamed would merely make him more vain. So efforts for Mr. Barry to reform would be futile.

As for fairness, I would just point to the old Irish saying: You can accomplish more with a kind word and a shillelagh than you can with just a kind word.

I was getting ready to go kick some Irish butt.

There are lazy journalists.

Such as those who can't be bothered to learn the difference between "tenant" and "tenet."

Barry is not only unfair and wrong, his lack of rectitude and rants of blind ambition along with his propensity to lead with poor judgement pretty much eliminate his chances of reelection. And ever getting a chick.

"Barry played football with and managed Cork City..."

I believe he still does.

"Barry played football with and managed Cork City making his League of Ireland debut in Cork’s first ever League game. As a player, he won a league title, several cups and played in numerous European ties for the club."
He also wrote a book.

Who knew? Dave, you sly fox you.

poker: Dave wrote a book?

"lazy shoddy shortcut punditry"

....and?

BTW, now that we know Dave Barry is a Corkman, I should let you all know that Corkman jokes in Ireland are rife and tend to focus on the, ummm, lack of intellectual rigor displayed in Cork County. This does allow Dave Barry one possible defense strategy, though:

A Corkman was charged with murder but was acquitted by the skin of his teeth. Afterwards he told his lawyer that he could prove he was innocent because he was in jail at the time the crime was committed.
'Why on earth didn't you tell that to the court?' asked his lawyer.

'I thought that it might prejudice the jury against me', said the Corkman.

"Dave Barry has a wealth of footballing experience."

That's as may be but Dave Barry wouldn't be kicking gerands around quite so casually.

There should be some kind of duel set up over this slander. If you need a second, and pay my way to Ireland, I'll volunteer.

Whoa! It took a bit for me to realize that he wasn't from Flathead County and was ranting about another Dave Barry.

...lazy shoddy shortcut punditry

He says that like it's a bad thing. In this country, that's a prerequisite for being a Network TV news anchor.

Dave Barry is a journalist?

Not one mention of his Pull It Surprise.

Any analysis that does not have the Tranmere Rovers as the best team in Europe is suspect.

" Barry played football "

He played guitar; it only sounded like a football.

Finally someone brave enough to say so.

@Clankie:
'" Barry played football "

He played guitar; it only sounded like a football.'

Say, that sounds like it would make a good song - let's see now:
"Barry played guitar - jammin' good with King and Amy, the Spiders from Mars..."

On second thought, no. It would never sell.

Is there a Tiki Taka bar in Cork City?

"Dave Barry, took lazy shoddy shortcut punditry to a new level. Indeed if there was an award for this sub category of punditry then Dave Barry would be odds on to take the award home."

Dave's up for an award? Yay!


Does Missus Blog know you have had your pundit removed? You should so sext that.

Well, at least he's not a boffin.

"On Monday Night Soccer (MNS), Dave Barry, took lazy shoddy shortcut punditry to a new level"

there's either a missing comma or a superfluous comma here, and *our* dave would NEVER make that mistake

so neener, and booger

I could would have swore that Dave Barry wrote books,
Yea, I know!

Layzee...yeah...that Pulitzer committee really f*cked up, didn't they?

I'm still trying to figure out why being a manager of a wine superstore like "Cork City" qualifies one as an expert on soccer.
