Friday Jams: Gullible

Good Lord we’re gullible. Case in point, the media circus that IS Chris Kluwe. First off, well done Mr. Kluwe, rarely does a former NFL punter keep himself embedded in the daily news. Where’s that little clappy icon, he’s needed here. Anyways…well done. So here’s our little Chris Kluwe for dummies 40 second rundown…

Ok, SO, Chris Kluwe feels strongly that homosexuals should be allowed to marry. Cool. No worries, he has a right to speak on his beliefs. He gained a large following cuz people who knew nothing about Chris Kluwe said “Oh heyyyyyy, you like gay marriage and talked about it in public, you’re so cool and brave and courageous. We love youuuuuu even though we know nothing else about youuuuu” and Chris Kluwe was all ‘yaaaaa man, I’m a brave muthafucker, speaking out on gay rights and all but I’m not a very good punter anymore so I’m looking for a new role for the future and y’all are buying into it so heyyyyyy guys thanks!’ 

And those of us who are all, ‘Uh, you’re a football player, a punter at that. You should punt the ball cuz the only relevance you have in our lives is on Sunday and whether or not you punt well. Don’t care about your personal beliefs cuz I’m not a sucker who will buy into your scam just cuz you’re speaking out on an issue that many of us just  LIVE our daily lives by supporting and shut the fuck up about it’ were all, srsly dude, STFU and play ball.

But then Kluwe got cut from the Vikings (NO stupid people, they don’t renegotiate a less than average punter’s contract. They fire him. Cuz there’s a line of punters behind him who will come play better for less money.) DUH!

And then Kluwe was all, “hey you big bigoted Vikings coaches and owners,  you fired me cuz I’m for gay marriage.” And the rest of the reasonable world was all, “No, fucknutt, they fired you for the same reason the Raiders did. You weren’t good.” 

So ya, there ya go. But in honor of all you low knowledge gullible people who actually know absolutely nothing about whether Chris Kluwe is really a stand up guy in real life other than speaking out on a highly politicized charged topic…The Flatliners, Gullible…eh?

The basic tool for the manipulation of reality is the manipulation of words. If you can control the meaning of words, you can control the people who must use the words.

About tosabarbell

For training opportunities at tosabarbell, call or text Juli at 320-296-9313. e-mail to At tosabarbell, I build relationships cultivated in a strength and learning environment. There is no 12 week magic pill program to strength but rather a lifetime commitment to be the very best and most useful human you can be. tosabarbell is a private, home grown gym with three lifting platforms; squat rack; prowlers; throwing implements; bars, bumpers and everything else needed for an effective strength and conditioning program. Straightforward barbell programming including the Olympic lifts; sound (read: not fancy bullshit) diet advance for weight gain or loss; and strong coaching will ensure you will meet your goals such as becoming stronger, more explosive, and better conditioned. I have been coaching teams and athletes for over 30 years. I grew up participating in various sports at various levels but was always drawn to those that require strength training. I have multiple local, national, and world records in the sports of Weightlifting and Highland Games Heavy Events as well as a combined total of 5 World Championships. My 5 years of training and coaching under Mark Rippetoe provided a wide range of influence from some of the top strength & conditioning and throwing coaches in the country. I will strongly encourage tosabarbell athletes to compete (and prepare you to do so.) However, tosabarbell is also for those who wish to be stronger and go through life feeling better. Matt WanAt is a retired Professional Strongman who competed frequently with Strongman Champions League in Europe. He played a year of D1 football with Iowa before concentrating on his Chemical Engineering degree in Iowa City. He is a native of Wauwatosa and still remains a staunch supporter of Tosa East. This blog will be a mixture of strength notes, coaching and nutrition tips, personal shit; bacon delicacies, and a whole lot of fun.
