The drive-by sports media and theTennessee Titans

Well Tennessee has had, by any measure, one hell of a season but you wouldn't know it if you watched ESPN or any of the sports shows.

The drive-bys have spent the WHOLE SEASON fixated on NEW YORK and the Dallas Cowgirls and their rotating staff of career criminals.

Two weeks ago Tennessee HANDILY beats the Pittsburgh Steelers (whom all of the sports shows said was the best team in the AFC) and ESPN is talking about Cowgirl #2 (Terrell Owens) and his conspiracy theory that Cowgirl #1 (Tony Romo) was throwing the ball to Jason Witten more than to him. Actually since Terrell has been a cowgirl, Romo has thrown to him like 80 times more than Witten but hey sports drive-by's don't let that stop you. After all it is so much more newsworthy to cover the RANTINGS of a thirty plus year-old MILLIONAIRE crybaby egomaniac than to actually talk about football and a team that is winning.

Before that it was Plaxico Burress. Newsflash sports drive-bys idiotically shooting yourself in the leg is NOT the crime of the century. Hell Ray Lewis got less press for actually being involved in the MURDER of someone about a decade ago.

So sports drive-bys what will be your excuse for not covering the Titans if they make it to the Super Bowl? Perhaps PacMan Jones will have a hangnail?
Maybe Tony Romo will catch crabs from his girlfriend Jessica Simpson?

Why does the sports media HATE teams who aren't from New York or aren't populated by enough criminals to single-handedly raise the crime statistics of their geographic region?

And BTW, if you want to watch some REAL SMASH-MOUTH football tune in this Saturday at 3:30.

The Ravens ALWAYS play well against the Titans and usually the game is decided in the last minute or so.

NostraWilthrill isn't in the prediction business but if the Titans get past the Ravens they WILL be in the Super Bowl. Pittsburgh isn't as good as everyone seems to think they are (their defense IS that good but their offense isn't) and the Titans OWN Pittsburgh.

But you know any of these teams Titans, Steelers, Ravens and even San Diego are true football teams (as opposed to an assemblage of overpaid celebretards) who pretty much let their playing ON THE FIELD do the talking. It would be nice to see THAT get covered by the sports drive-bys. Instead of talking about the latest gun crime involving a Cowgirl or New Yawker why not talk about the story of Rob Bironis (one of the best kickers in the league who came up through ARENA football) or Kerry Collins who was pretty much written off as "over the hill" or hell even the story of San Diego whom three of four weeks ago was written off as being "done for the season". There are plenty of GOOD stories that could be covered.
