The No Shot in Hell Hall of Fame

Bill Romanowski says he wants the Broncos head coaching job. He’s gone so far as to send Pat Bowlan a powerpoint presentation detailing his qualifications for the position.

Does it include the steroids admissions?  The recreational drug use? The incident when he ended a teammates career during a fight? The cheating? The spitting? The ball grabbing at the bottom of the pile?

How can this guy even think he has a chance? What kind of dreamworld is he living in?

I don’t know. Why are you asking me?  What I do know, though, is that Romanowski is not alone. There have been a number of people with stars in their eyes and rocks in their head recently. Let’s take a look at a few of them.

Colorado Congressman Tom Tancredo: This yahoo ran for President. Of America.  No, seriously. His big issue: hating immigrants. That was it. Otherwise, he was in lock step with the President. He just didn’t think ol’ GW was mean enough to the Mexicans. He did not win the election.

Robin Williams: He wanted to play the Joker in “The Dark Knight”.  Christopher Nolan envisioned the character as a maniac so calm and low-key, it made him arguably scarier than any other villian in movie history. And fucking Robin Williams thought he could pull that off. Mork! Patch Adams! The guy that can’t sit still for a damn talk show interview without breaking into voices and jumping out of his seat.  Thank God, Heath Ledger got that role.  Because the star of RV would have driven it right off a cliff. Jesus!

Bass Fishing: A few years ago, there was actually an article in Sports Illustrated that bass fishing would soon reach the level of Nascar in this country, and the sport’s stars would become household names. (I can’t find the article on SI Vault right now, but I know it’s in there someplace.) “Hey, hypothetical friend with an above average interest in the world of sports, who is your favorite bass fishing guy?”  Yeah. i don’t have one either.  Sorry bass fishing.. you are not significant. And you are mean to bass.
