Playing the Field: DeAndre Jordan farts; Goodell talking London

Did Jordan just fart on Anderson Varejao? It's getting smelly up in here ...

DeAndre Jordan is enjoying a meteoric rise to fame to start this young NBA season.

He’s been logging serious minutes for those championship title-contending (yes, they are deep and talented enough to win it all) Clippers, all while out-leaping fools on the glass and throwing highlight-reel dunks down. His averages: 10.9 ppg, 7.0 rpg, 1.9 bpg. He recently gouged Tim Duncan and the Spurs for 20 and 11.

That’s the on-court heroics. Off the court, Jordan is enjoying fame by acting like South Park’s famed comedy duo, Terrance and Phillip. If you don’t watch South Park (and if you don’t you should probably stop reading this now), then we’ll let DeAndre explain in one of the funniest videos to go viral this week …

Our favorite part is when the shirtless guy asks him about how the Lakers will do this season. He answers with a fart noise, saying “that’s what I think about the Lakers.” Priceless.

London keeps calling Goodell

Has any commissioner, in any sport, done more to ruin the reputation of his sport than Roger Goodell? The guy is clueless, but since the NFL is a well-oiled, one-man wrecking crew, it doesn’t really matter. No one will stop watching.

So Goodell continues to play a charade with London, England and pretends they like football (the real kind) over there. Each season, he strips a proud NFL franchise of a home game and sends them overseas, way overseas. As if one game wasn’t enough, now he is calling for two games in London i 2013 and maybe giving them a franchise “down the road.”

“As you know, we have determined we will have two regular-season games there next season,” Goodell told ESPN Radio’s Mike & Mike in the Morning, via ProFootballTalk.com. “The fans are reacting very positively to the game.  The more we give them, the more they want.  That is why we are expanding the series.  If that continues, who knows where it goes down the road.  I think we are quite a ways from having a franchise there, but I don’t rule it out as a possibility down the road if the game continues to grow.”

Please, no. Please, no. Assuming the English knew the difference between a fumble and an interception, the distance is just too far. You think playing in Seattle sucks, Giants fans? New York City is like 3,500 miles away (7.5 hours by plane).

Some things just have to stay American. That’s why we divorced the king and started a revolution. And to be fair … England, a country known for soccer, isn’t trying to score a MLS franchise, right? Good or bad, some things just have to stay American.
