A cranky opinion for
Cranky Opinion Saturday
Stay off the
internet!Do not tweet! Beware of facial
expressions! Practice your robot voice because you will be judged on words,
facial expressions and body language.Furthermore, body language experts you’ve never met will tell the world
what you really said, even if you did not know you said it.
this all about Cranky man?”

the original sidelines “Babe” interviewer,

answered with a smile, “It feels great baby!”He then had the audacity as he turned and left
to smile again.

he will be hit with a sexual harassment suit from the 320 pound lineman who he
slapped on the butt after the game and shouted, “Great game baby!”
