Disclaimer: These are not real interviews. They are purely satire. They were featured weekly in my NFL Power Rankings.
Hope you enjoyed my interview with John McCain (scroll down for the link). Now here's Barack Obama!
ME: Hey, Senator Obama, thanks for coming on for an interview!
OBAMA: "Hi, Walt. I think the Tennessee Titans are going to win the Super Bowl. I also think the Los Angeles Lakers will win the NBA title. Alabama will win the college championship. And North Carolina will prevail in the Final Four."
ME: Uhh... OK, I didn't really ask you whom you liked in sports, but that's fine. Let me ask you, what do you...
OBAMA: "Wait a second, Walt. I just noticed something. Your site traffic has increased over the years. If you get any more traffic, I'll have to take some of your hits and give them to sites that have less traffic."
ME: What!? Why would you do that!? That's not fair!
OBAMA: "These sites with less traffic deserve an opportunity to grow and I want to get them that opportunity."
ME: But some of these sites you're talking about aren't updated every day, and their HTML doesn't even work! Some haven't even been updated in months!
OBAMA: "I can see that we won't agree on this. If you'll excuse me, I have to attend another rally. I'll let you talk to my running mate, Joe Biden."
ME: All right... Hi, Joe, glad you could join me.
BIDEN: "Barack Obama sucks! He'll be tested on his second day in office, and he's going to fail! He's going to fail miserably because Barack Obama sucks! You heard it here first!"
ME: Wait... isn't Senator Obama your running mate? Why would you throw him under the bus like that... actually, never mind. I wanted to interview the presidential candidates. Not the vice presidents. Despite what Governor Palin may believe, the vice president doesn't do anything. So, I'm out of here. Peace, Joe Biden!
I really don't understand why you keep bashing the 49ers contracts. You have to overpay for guys when you have one of the worst rosters in the NFL. Beyond that, they have nearly $70 mill in cap space even after free agency, so what's the big deal if they overspend?
