The "Broke Back" Mafia?

I finally watched the last episode of the The Sopranos, AKA “The Broke Back Mafia" and there's something that's been bugging me.

This season proved the Mafia doesn’t exist because if it did everyone associated with that show would need witness protection.

Ma please…

There are two things in life that are “for sure”.

#1 – There’s no crying in baseball.

#2 – A gay guy in the Mafia doesn’t last six episodes.

I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with a gay guy in the Mafia. But he gets one episode and then you whack him and move on.

They ought to whack those guys for making us wait two years for that crap.

It’s like everyone in charge of that show was being graded on the curve.

Grading on the curve is basically a teachers way of saying 90% of the people in this class are idiots and 10% of you will end up in interior design or television production.

Someone please tell me how you can score a “7” on a test and still get an “A”?

That’s what happened to the Soprano’s this year. They really got a “7” but they’re being graded on the curve.

That’s because television in general is all crap.

I wish grading on the curve worked in real life. You could have, "dating on the curve", "marriage on the curve”.

But unlike television there would always be that one husband or boyfriend that would screw it up for the rest of us.

And our wives or girlfriends would be telling us how great “Stevie” is and “How come you can’t be more like Stevie?” and we would look them in the eye and say, “He’s gay.”

Because that’s the only defense we have and somehow that makes us feel better.

That’s why the Soprano’s sucked this year.

I'm blaming Stevie.
