Al Harris is a funny guy. Funny How? Like Dave Chapelle doing Lil’ Jon funny. Yesterday on the Bubba The Love Sponge Show (on Sirius satellite Radio) Bubba interviewed Packer’s cornerback Al Harris, and Al said that someone needed to “talk to Emmit.” Bubba asked why, and Al’s reply? Because, “He’s Brutalizing the King’s English.” I was laughing so hard I about crashed my car. I was so happy to hear him (Al) loose at this point in the season, not only because he is supremely confident about the Packers play, but also because it comes just as the Dallas Cowboys stumbled. Another Dallas miscue and a couple Packer wins means the rematch would be at Lambeau.
Also, Bubba and Al lamented the ommision of Greg Jennings and Charles Woodson from the NFC Pro Bowl roster, as well as Nick Barnett being relegated to an alternate. Are those legitimate complaints?
Greg Jennings, The Bonafides…

Who made it instead… Larry Fitzgerald, Terrell Owens, Donald Driver, and Tory Holt.
Who else got snubbed… Um, besides Greg? Joey freaking Galloway. Plaxico Burress. Roddy White? Or the Guy with the third most receiving yards in the NFC, Marques Colston… (y’all can check for yourselves)

Who else got snubbed… Ernie Sims (122 tackles, 3 FF), London Fletcher (121 tackles, 3 INTs), and like 5 others….
The Conclusion? Who the **** watches the Pro Bowl anyway?
