todaze Lympian wins official Obama Heisman trophy award

Backup quarterback Charlie Batch’s emotional win against the Baltimore Ravens this season sealed the deal for die-hard Pittsburgh Steelers fan Darlene Silvio…

“I figured they were on sale, I wanted a Charlie Batch jersey, I’ve wanted one for years,” she said.

So Silvio clicked online and Googled “Charlie Batch jersey.”…

…she quickly learned she had ordered from a fake sports-jersey site located in China. She added anyone could have made this mistake because the Chinese site looks like an official team site, including the words “official online store.”…

…Another clue that the site was bogus was it listed a Steelers jersey with President Barack Obama’s name on it.

I thought I was dealing with a reputable website, but I was wrong,” Silvio said.

    Is that a Double Zero on his jersey?

    Since when does he deserve a second Zero.

    Sheesh… Seems like they just give Zeros away like Nobel Peace Prizes anymore.

    As much as I’d love to see a Redskins Super Bowl victory (no matter how remote the odds), the image of his name on a ‘Skins jersey is just to horrifying to contemplate.

    Leave it to the Chi-Coms to find an alternate spelling for Biyatch.

    Zero demonstrates the “white man’s overbite”

    Has Obama decided which photo of himself he’s going to use to commemorate Gen. Schwartzkopf?

    Waddoya spect when you go to a web page with the ridiculous name of *Google*? Me, I use a site with a more pedestrian title; BING. They don`t jerk me around. Like, when I type in “Amazon” they don`t send me to a fake jungle in China! (…altho——all the shit I order, for sum strange reason, has: “Made in China” on the tag……go figger?….)
