With not a whole lot going on in the world of the Baltimore Ravens aside from the Gary Kubiak hiring, I figure now is the perfect time to do one of my classic silly type articles. In this article I will compare and contrast Ravens Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco with a block of wood and try to figure out which one is more interesting.
Joe Flacco does have a heck of an arm (probably the strongest in the NFL). he’s tall, somewhat resembles Bert from Sesame Street and has a lot of money (thanks Ozzie Newsome). As far as expressions go, you got to give the man credit. He pretty much always has that “lost in the sauce” look on his face as opposed to Peyton Manning and brother Eli Manning who both have the “Manning Face” after an interception or some other awful play. When it comes to interviews, Flacco couldn’t be more cliche and boring. Almost every question to Flacco is followed with a high pitched um or uh, followed by a “you know.” Yes Joe, we know you’re boring. Even worse are the local commercials he’s in. “I’m Joe Flacco and Pizza Hut Pizza is my favorite.” Sheesh, even Al Gore is less robotic than Flacco.
A block of wood, while simple in nature has many positives. It won’t get mad if you hit it with an axe, it can be used to make camp fires, you could sit on it and you could make all sorts of neat things with it in your wood shop class. A block of wood isn’t all smiles and rainbows, though. A block of wood can give you splinters, it can hurt you if someone throws it at you and you never know what kind of animal mess it could be sitting in.
As you can see both Flacco and the block of wood have pros and cons, but who is more interesting? That’s not up to me. It’s up to all of you. At the conclusion of this article I would like all of you to vote. It can be in the comments section, Facebook, Twitter, whatever. Let’s answer this question once and for all. Is Flacco more interesting than a block of wood?
