Peter King Is Seeing Beyond the Shadows of the Cave

In the world of knowledge, the idea of good appears last of all, and is seen only with effort. -Plato

At KSK we've presented you with our opinions regarding Peter King and his nemesis, one James Arthur Monk. I've never had all that much against PK, mostly because I stopped reading his articles when I got tired of SI's anti-Redskin agenda (sure, call me paranoid...they'll come for you next). The one sticking point for me has always been his irrational opposition to the election of Art Monk to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. For this I've always held a grudge against the grandiose Oracle of Starbucks (although he's also known by such affectionate epithets as Fucktard, His Dudeness Doucheness, and Manning Family Rectal Inspector).

And now, just like that, PK is flipping the script. All in some pathetic misguided attempt too court my forgiveness and loyalty (I know how you think Peter, I have a key to your diary). Listen PK, just because you contradicted everything you've ever said about my favorite wide receiver doesn't mean that you're getting one of my conceptually flawed, yet undeniably popular, Hanukkah Hams (he's obviously not in it for the Christmas Card...so much profanity and so little pig fat).

It can't be that simple, the guy has spent years bashing the candidacy of the venerable Monk. When Bill Polian told PK he was acting like a donkey raping shit eater (I'm paraphrasing from memory...does THC hinder memory?) King decided it was about time to change his mind. And get this, Dr. Z approves! (somebody's off his meds).
Sometimes we get so involved with inner-sanctum nonsense that we lose sight of the big picture. It's good to have an outsider knock us on our ass every now and then.
Well what the fuck do you think we've been trying to do all this time, improve Monk's confidence? It's as if all of the football guys at Sports Illustrated have just recovered from the worlds longest hit of nitrous (Tom Jackson's Pac-Man impression makes me giggle). Now that King has looked at Monk's true contributions he's been deemed worthy of entrance into the Hall that PK guards with all tenacity of Cerberus on a five-day meth high.

Let's just say that I'm not quite ready to drink the kool-aid promising a "new and enlightened" Peter King (although I'm down with the "new and lightened" PK...big ups vanilla face). The last time I fell for the "phony nice guy" routine I wound up with an Anvil tattoo above my ass crack. For all I know this could be his way of teaming up with Brian Pillman only to turn heel and join up with those Canadian bastards in the Hart Foundation (yeah I had to sink down to that level, the Sports Guy already had dibs on the Rockers and Piper/Snuka).

In my heart of hearts I am still holding out hope. I know that PK is a great football mind, despite his penchant for douchebaggery occasionally veiling his knowledge. Perhaps one day Peter and I could be friends, maybe we could even meet for one of his coffee-like beverages (although I take mine sugarless and blacker than Kueth Duany). Yet non of this can happen until Monk's sultry bronzed visage is resting in its rightful spot in Canton. There is nothing gay about seeing the beauty in a sculpture!!!

For now we can call things even, maybe one day I could even be dating one of your lovely daughters...or not. Too soon? Yeah, it's probably too soon.

I had forgotten all about Kueth and his brother Duany Duany.

Monk wasn't even the best WR on his team- Clark was the bigger threat.

this is the kind of sentiment you only get from people who didn't watch every Redskins game. this was the same problem king had until he went back and talked to people like len shapiro who truly understand all that monk did for those incredible teams that are woefully underrepresented in the Hall. gibbs and riggins are lonely. apparently 3 super bowls only gets you two hall of famers.

I hated Plato. Fuck you and the world of forms. Aristotle owns you.

Claude Balls said...

UM, I understand your pain. When Rice is inducted, the 49ers will only have 5 HOFers from the teams that won 5 Super Bowls.

But, somehow, it is the laughable idea of an anti-Dallas bias that gets discussed.

Darrell Green should get in in '08.

Too bad we can't leave Irvin out due to his outstanding analytical skills; his warm, inviting, charming TV personality; and his over-achieving, highly-critical, engaging commentary on the NFL.

Unsilent Majority said...

Irvin deserves it.

The best part of this is that Monk's most fervent supporter, Michael Wilbon, has given up his HoF vote (too much time spent covering NBA) and will not be voting this year. So, a vote gained and a vote lost for Rod Smit...Art Monk.
