With the 2008 National Football League Season beginning in just a fewweeks, Democratic Party Presidential nominee, Barack Obama, was askedwho his favorite football player was. Before running for President,Obama was known to say "Rex Grossman" or "Brian Urlacher" in an effortto appeal to his Illinois constituency by naming a player for theChicago Bears. Now that Obama has gone "nation-wide" it seems he'sdecided to pick a player that the whole country loves from a team whosecolors are a vibrant RED,WHITE and BLUE!! How can it get more patriotic than the NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS and what more loveable player to pick from this team as your favorite than All-Star wide-receiver RANDY MOSS?!
In addition to naming Randy Mosshis favorite player, Obama also announced his plans to create a newcabinet position when he is elected President. At the beginning of eachfootball season, President Obama will appoint an NFL wide-receiver toserve as "Secretary of Six" for the nation. This player will serve torepresent the hopes and dreams of the entire country of football fansas well as represent their wallets. Because, you see, BarackObama has said that for every touchdown (six points) the "Secretary ofSix" scores, he'll add another $50 to the tax rebates for all Americansto be mailed out in the Spring. Last year Moss scored the all-timesingle-season NFL record of 23 touchdowns which would have amounted toa whopping $1150 for most Americans instead of the measley $600 givento us by George Bush last year!
To commemorate one of President"Touchdown" Obama's first major policy decisions, I've made this "RandyMoss: Secretary of Six" painting. It shows Randy through all the phasesof his illustrious, Hall of Fame career. From his wild, hilarious daysat the Minnesota Vikings when in January, 2005 he "fake mooned" thePacker fans at Lambeau Field, to his days as an Oakland Raider; andfinally to the New England Patriots where, with the help of quarterbackTom Brady and head coach Bill Belichick, Randy Moss should be makingall of us Americans a hell of alot of money!
