Top Fool BravoBevo, Please Take Down Your Longhorns Symbol

Listen up top Fools, quit trying to shove your college football allegiances down my throat.  Every day, I long on to this site and another "crazy" wants to tell me what the best college team is.  Or at least Motley Fool could make it a smaller part of the screen at the itty bitty bottom right hand corner.

Personally, I don't care for your Fool moniker either, BravoBevo.  I don't need to hear about your team's mascot and how proud Texas makes you feel.  You may be a great investor but keep your beliefs at home!

This is stock investing website and that's all we should be talking about or seeing, period.

As an admirer of large breasts, I'm offended by that picture, as I don't believe that woman's breasts are big enough.

David,

I would like to solicit your thoughts specifically on my blog today.

Maybe if you comment we can get the ball rolling on other's.

Of course, anyone reading this is welcome to join in the discussion as well.

Why don't you just ignore it?  I mean I'm a football fan too but I don't get offended when I see another football team icon on the first page.  Get to the Top Fool and you can push any team you want. 

In all fairness, my college team was Division 2...

My request is that BB would blog/pitch more often.

For those of you who don't "get" the joke..........

David wrote a parody post of a particularly offensive and much commented blog from 11/16. The post isn't worth a link. 

My Huskies (UW) are ..............improving!?

Whereaminow's post WAS SARCASM for those who didn't catch on.

If I were top fool, I would tell everyone to move their deposits out of WF, BofA, Chase, & USBank...the four horsemen of today's US economy.

We teh citizens would be a million times better off with that money put in community banks or credit unions.

Well I dont know about you guys but after reading most of the comments, I think most people "got" the joke.... If you are referring to my comment, its a direct parody of the comment i wrote on the original post. Either way good post David.

I can deal with the shameless promotion of college football franchise's. I can definitely deal with the Jesus ... What gets my girdle in a gander is the ever looming "100".  I hover somewhere between 13-16.  I view your constancy and everpresent 100 as a monument to my personal ability to excel at "sucking really bad". Listen...just once...for the little people....give Fannie Mac a green thumb for the next years.

Heh heh.  If ocsurf gets that pic transformed into his avatar I might just take down my longhorn sign. Actually, I have a pic that I'd share but I don't know how to embed a pic into a post (hint: any instructions would be appreciated).

I posted this elsewhere, but to David and the rest of the guys here who I enjoy so much, I'll copy and paste it here: 

From time to time I've posted sayings from some people who, in my opinion, have made significant contributions ... folks like C.S. Lewis, or Abraham Lincoln, or Dietrich Bonnhoeffer, or Jonathan Edwards, or Benjamin Franklin, or Mother Teresa, or Sir Edmund Burke, or Martin Luther King Jr., or Saint Augustine, or George Washington.

And I have a whole slew of quotes from famous Longhorns such as Darrell K. Royal, Augie Garrido, Rick Barnes, Mack Brown, Vincent Young, Kevin Durant, Earl Campbell, etc., which you'd probably enjoy. For example, back during the days of the old Southwest Conference a newscaster asked Coach Royal if his Top 10 ranked Longhorn football team would need to be concerned about playing the TCU Horned Frogs as the next opponent and Royal said (about TCU): "They're like a bunch of cockroaches. It's not what they eat and tote off, it's what they fall into and mess up that hurts." I still chuckle every time someone mentions TCU (and my wife graduated from TCU).

While I like humor as much as the next person, I benefit more from pondering over thought-provoking comments. Did you know that Kevin Durant (now the starting power forward of the NBA's Oklahoma City Thunder) was taught by his father that: "Hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard." I love that quote because it is so simple but so motivating.

Which leads to why I post the things that I do - to get folks to think about something they might not have considered previously. I cannot convince anyone anything. That isn't what I'm tryiing to do.  Another Fool said that my post "is advertising God." That's cute. But I will say that if someone takes the time to read the post, that's good. And if someone else makes the effort to think about it, regardless of whether or not s/he agrees with me, that's great.

If you'd like to visit on any of the posts or any of my blogs or comments, I'd enjoy your perspective. Thanks again for your hilarious blog.  Fool on!

Bravo to post images

type this

img src="www.insertwebsiteaddressofpicturehere.com"

and bracket the whole thing  with < and >

I have a bit of troule getting it to always always work and some image sites seem to not work here (i've had trouble getting flickr to work), but that's generally how I've gotten it to work in the past.

If that doesn't work ask Binve, he posts pics all the time.

hope that helps.

BravoBevo,

Glad you enjoyed it!  I came home drunk a couple nights ago and there was a really ridiculous blog out there asking you to take down your Christian beliefs from the top post spot.  Rather than arguing with guy, I decided to just call him an idiot and post a satire. I think my evil plan worked :)

Thanks TastyLunch (see, I learned something and the month is barely halfway over). 

Here's a pic even though this brings back memories of last year's college football fiasco when Texas (in a 3-way tie in the Big XII Conference's South Division with Oklahoma and Texas Tech at the completion of regular season games) got sent to play Ohio State in the Fiesta Bowl while Oklahoma advanced to the national champtionship game against Florida (and all of this even though Texas beat Oklahoma 45 - 35 in the head-to-head matchup played on the turf).
