"Electric daily content?" Seriously? 

 

This is what we in the biz call "puffing."

Shouldn't this be worn more to keep from chewing on shirt collars?

 

 

He started that video wearing a mask, speaking in a dramatic voice, and playing The Imperial March in the background.

The only "electric daily content" coming from him is the reading on his blood glucose meter.

So here is the vlog in question.

 

 

His Star Wars puns are all so... forced.

I'm still waiting for that ticking time bomb of a political rant from him. You know it's gonna happen.

And he's getting paid to do this?

Not sure if that's the Darth Vader mask making that noise or Tank is getting himself winded between sentences.....

Probably a little of both.

How about the fact that the rant is a month old but Tank has still been relevant? I would've thought he would have his 15 minutes of fame, we'd have our laugh because we know him, and he goes away from the spotlight. But so far, he's stayed in it and that's impressive whether you like him or not.

It'll happen, but they might just brush it off as part of his insane guy persona he has there. His twitter history is....not great. Borderline racist stuff on there. I'm not going to out him and end whatever he's getting from Barstool (I really hope he's getting paid), but someone will eventually find something.

So do I. That said, it's the easiest money he's ever made and possibly the worst money ever spent by a sports outlet. See exhibit A...

Why and how would that even hurt him and cause him to lose this weird gravy train he's been on lately? Look at the world today. Who out there has flown off the handle with some crazy racist and politically charged bull :censored: lately and has actually faced any type of real negative backlash? In fact, racism, homophobia, paranoia, and outright lunacy has, shocking and horrifyingly, been somewhat chic. It's this bazarro world version of the "In thing", but in this case that bizarro world is the reality we live in.  If anything, it will only gain him MORE of a following because He Tells It Like It Is or something insane like that. 

 

We live in a really weird, backwards, and totally :censored:ed up time, and I think it's mistake to underestimate that.

I try not to be a grammar nazi, and I'm far from perfect. That being said, someone please teach this man to use a comma properly!

 

He never seems to use them where he should, and most of the places where he does, they're wholly unnecessary. It makes it really hard to follow his train of thought.

 

On second thought, nevermind. His writing style fits his speech fairly well. Ugh, I can think of a dozen amateur sports writers who could have made a worthwhile career out of the attention our once, and former, @NJTank has recieved.

God knows I make more than my share of grammatical mistakes, but I like to think my stuff is at least readable. There were so many run-on sentences in Tanks...ahem...column that I couldn't keep track of what he was trying to say. It's like he has some decent ideas, but he lacks any ability to coherently express them.

...or is it that he comes out with so many thoughts and ideas, that every once in a while he is statistically bound to come up with a good one?

A few years ago, I suggested to him that he desperately needed Dragon or some other "speech to text" software. That recommendation was just for his three to four sentence previews, not anything as lengthy as these Barstool pieces. But some Barstool commenters are making it clear his writing is awful.

They should throw hissy fits in public then.  Lest we forget that Tank's fame was born acting like a petulant baby in front of a camera.
