The Things That Need to Go in 2022-Part Two

TTNTG22

Welcome back to our countdown of the Things That Need to Go in 2022.

This is a collection of the trends, people, phrases,and anything else you can think of that need to go when we arrive at,hopefully,a better new year. This is Part Two of our countdown where we will reveal items 80-61 of the list. 

Disclaimer: This list is for entertainment purposes and is meant to be taken semi-seriously, so keep that in mind when you read the list. We’re just trying to have fun here!

Here’s our countdown and here’s #80!

JointFacebookAccounts80. Joint Facebook accounts

Fourth year selection

We begin Part Two of our list with something that annoys many social media users-the joint Facebook account. First of all,it looks like certain couples have trust issues and that one of y’all cheated on the other or both of you did. Is the other person not allowed to be on social media individually? What’s up with that? There is one saving grace to these accounts and that’s the Facebook groups that highlight them. Other than that, these gotta go.

TruckwithTrainHorn79. CATCH-ALL: Lifted trucks and trucks with train horns

Third and first year selections

I have lifted trucks back on the list after a long time because not only are they still around,but they’ve gotten bigger and very monster truck-esque. It’s almost to the point where these trucks could probably drive over cars in the parking lot of a grocery store. Not to mention a lot of the folks who drive them are making up for certain shortcomings if you know what I mean. Also,some of these dumb trucks have horns from a train on them. Not only is it unnecessary,but it also scares motorists like myself whenever I am on the road with these people and I know I am not near a train. Message to all of these people with these dumb vehicles: Do better and try again!

CellPhone78. Super long cell phone contracts

First year selection

I have to have this one on the list because contracts for cell phones are ridiculously long. Now I wouldn’t have a problem with this,but here’s the thing: Cell phones don’t last very long and usually lose their oomph around four to six months before a contract ends. Also, I’ve heard they’re only going to get longer which means you’re stuck with an inferior product longer as it ages and doesn’t do so well anymore. I was at Disneyland recently and I had to get a new phone during my trip because of how little battery I would have while I was at the park and had to go back to my hotel and charge it for hours at a time and missing out on time at the park. If I had the option of having a smaller contract just as my phone was about to die it wouldn’t have been an issue,but nonetheless I was able to get what I needed in the end. It shouldn’t have to take that to be over a contract, you know?

Sideshows77. Sideshows

First year selection

Something I should’ve had a long time ago on this list, these sideshows where people gather around a bunch of stupid cars that are oversouped up spin around and do donuts on city streets and freeways sometimes blocking traffic. This is not only stupid and a complete waste of time,but also a safety hazard to those of us who actually have somewhere to go. The only good thing about these is when the cops come to break them up and sometimes arrest those involved. Other than that,this has to go!

Klay Thompson

76. Injured players on All-Star ballots

First year selection

Something I think needs to not happen are players who have been injured all season appearing on the All-Star ballots for their respective sport. Why should they get any consideration over someone who is playing and not hurt for the year? It makes absolutely no sense to me. Klay Thompson does not deserve All-Star considerations for a season he isn’t active for or going to be active for. I would say the same for anyone else who isn’t playing at all that season regardless of sport. I don’t care how good you are or have been, someone else deserves the nod over you,maybe next year if you actually play you can be named to an All-Star roster.

BrittanyMahomes75. CATCH-ALL: Brittany Matthews and Jackson Mahomes

First year selection

This is actually a late addition to the list,but if anyone’s been watching football this year and seen how damaging these two have been to Patrick Mahomes’ season and how embarrassing they are on social media and in person on gameday, you know how much these two have to go. Sure,family is usually there to embarrass you and sometimes rightfully so,but these two are dreadfully embarrassing. If I was Patrick,I would tell them to knock it off or they’re not getting a dime from me. That’ll get them to shut up!

MaddenRatings74. Shows devoted to revealing Madden player ratings

First year selection

Yes,they really have a television show devoted to revealing a player’s Madden rating and I’m having a hard time understanding why. Do people really care about this? I can’t believe players get so hung up about this to begin with. Is it that big of a deal if you’re rated 99 on this game? How long is that even going to last for you? Probably not long. It’s bad enough players are butthurt in regards to how they’re rated on a video game that now we have a special TV program before the season begins to reveal them so they can continue to have their feelings hurt about this. Clearly we need to have better things to talk about in this world than what a player is rated on a video game. 

AngelHernandez73. Angel Hernandez

First year selection

It’s rare that we call out referees or umpires by name,but when it comes to this guy, we just had to because of how awful he has been,especially this past season. Angel Hernandez has the worst strike zone I have ever seen in baseball,and it’s not even close. He’s calling balls that should be strikes and vice versa and is generous towards star pitchers when it comes to calling balls and strikes. I can remember a lot of games this season he called where he was dead wrong a lot and it’s beginning to be unacceptable. Memo to Major League Baseball: If you want to keep human umpires around, make sure they know what the strike zone really is. Otherwise you get umpires like Hernandez who are awful and need to get the heave-ho!

MismatchedSocks72. People who mismatch their socks

Tenth year selection

A staple on this list, I still hate it with every fiber of my being. I fail to see why it’s so hard for anyone to match their socks. Either folks are just too lazy to do it or don’t have the maturity level to do it,but it’s time for this practice of unmatched socks to end once and for all. When I was a kid this was something that people laughed at you for and now,for some reason, it’s acceptable. No, that’s not how this is supposed to go or work. Until I see less and less of this,this is going to end up on the list.

NameonBackofSFGiantsJersey71. The name on the back of the San Francisco Giants’ home jersey

First year selection

A change nobody asked for, the Giants decided to place the last names on the back of the home jersey for the first time since moving to Oracle Park in 2000. I get why they made the move (an attempt to get fans who haven’t seen the team play in a while to get familiar with who is on the team), but the team won 107 games this year and true fans know who these guys are. Plus the jerseys looked so classic and pristine without names on them. I miss them already and the surnames have got to go. 

Weatherpeople70. Overdramatic weather people

Second year selection

If there’s one thing I can’t stand during a natural disaster,it’s the people reporting on it who are way too overdramatic about it. You know the ones that are holding onto tree branches pretending it’s windy and rainy outside when,in fact, other people are walking by just fine. Or the ones who are in an inflatable kayak on some supposedly flooded street when,in fact, it’s a mere puddle that others can walk through just fine. These so-called professional journalists are and have been making a mockery of this for some time. Kudos to the real folks who aren’t faking it and doing real reporting and being brave about being in a wicked storm, but the ones who are faking it need to get lost. Your time is up!

Charlie-Kirk269. Charlie Kirk

Second year selection

Mr. Tiny Face USA is on our list for many reasons. Not only is he terrible on his own, but also his policy positions are atrocious. He spread a lot of lies about vaccines, he smeared Simone Biles,and was instrumental in helping to get people to participate in the insurrection on Jan. 6. He’s an awful person and beyond that his face is super tiny. I mean, look at it, it doesn’t match his head size and to be honest, I think it’s only getting smaller. Never trust anyone with a face that’s disproportionate to the rest of their head.

MediumCheddar68. Medium cheddar

Sixth year selection

This is a staple on our list and for good reason: medium cheddar doesn’t taste very good. Sure,I love cheese,and I love cheddar, but in order for me (or anyone with good taste) to do so,it’s gotta be sharp and the sharper,the better. Medium cheddar just doesn’t do it for me. As I always say when this item comes up on the list, you gotta go sharp or go home. Sharp cheddar all the way,fam!

BezosSpace67. Billionaires

First year selection

Yes,you read that right, I have billionaires on the list. Why? Because we’re getting to the point where these people who have too much money as it is are doing unnecessary things with it like going to space as a hobby. These guys do realize that they can’t take this money with them when they die,right? The extreme wealth these guys have is a result of them not having to pay their fair share of taxes while you and I are taxed for just about everything. It is time these folks started paying more in taxes so that we can not only have things for the greater good but also so the playing field is a lot more level.

Big_Thunder_Moutain_Railroad66. Banning screaming on roller coasters

First year selection

Something that was actually talked about and considered was to ban people from screaming on roller coasters once theme parks reopened in California and I think it’s the dumbest thing you can think of doing in regards to banning anything involving fun. Do you really think people are not going to scream while on a roller coaster? Of course not!  Also,how would you enforce that? 

Most of the fun about being on a roller coaster is being able to scream on one and let all of the excitement come out. Silencing this would be not only unacceptable,but immoral. I think anyone trying to ban such a thing should be fired from whatever it is they do. Who are they,the fun police? (More on them later!)

FirstTakeESPN65. ESPN First Take

First year selection

This is a show that I haven’t been all that impressed with the past year or so and it’s mainly because Stephen A. Smith and his awful schtick and his constant yelling throughout the whole show,not to mention his dumb hatred of the Dallas Cowboys (Google the reason why he hates them,it’s hilarious!) and his wearing a cowboy hat and holding a fake cigar schtick whenever they lose. No wonder Max Kellerman asked/was asked to leave. I’m surprised Molly Qerim Rose is still hanging around,she really deserves better than this. She would be much better off hosting SportsCenter. Anyways, this show is just not as good as it once was, it’s much better than it was when Skip Bayless was around and humping Tim Tebow and the Dallas Cowboys and hating LeBron James and Terrell Owens,but it’s still not good television to watch. 

JimmyDore64. Jimmy Dore

First year selection

Here’s another person I really liked until I couldn’t stomach him anymore. Like Bill Maher (who we will get to later), Dore has sold out and shown himself to not be very logical or thoughtful when it comes to his beliefs and what it means to be progressive. He’s against everyone who doesn’t agree with everything he stands for and goes after Democrats way too much, even more than I do and when you do too much of it and I have to say something about it, that says more about you than it does me. Also,his videos are way too long and he pauses way too much to do commentary on what the video is about. He’s also way too anti-vax to even call himself a progressive. We believe in science,he clearly doesn’t. I would rather listen to anyone else at CNN or MSNBC than I would him and I really hate cable news.

QAnon63. QAnon

Second year selection

Is there anyone that takes any of these clowns seriously? I mean the group of people who think that Hillary Clinton ran a child sex trafficking ring out of a random pizza parlor, the group that thinks JFK Jr. is still alive and is going to run alongside Donald Trump in 2024, and the group that counts Marjorie Taylor Greene and Lauren Boebert as believers (more on them later in the list!) as well as a Shaman who was a part of the Jan. 6 insurrection and only eats organic foods (very un-Republican-like,by the way, they usually eat meat and stuff!), does anyone really think these people are worth listening to? Honestly,if anyone I know is a believer of theirs,they can exit my life right now. These people are a Jonestown-like cult. They are on a road to Heaven’s Gate,all they need are purple drapes and matching Nikes,but I shouldn’t give them ideas, my bad!

NBACourtSponsors62. Endless sponsorship logos on NBA courts

First year selection

If there’s one thing I am sick of seeing on NBA courts,it’s the endless sponsorships that are placed on them. From the sponsorships at the end of the court to the computer generated ones at midcourt, it’s become overkill. Sure,hockey has a lot of ads on the boards,but we’re used to that and have been for over 30 years now. The NBA is just now doing it and it’s annoying. It’s bad enough they have ads on their uniforms, now they have to use the floor they play on to do the same and it’s just annoying and unnecessary. 

TinyPaperClips61. Tiny paper clips

Fourth year selection

We end Part Two with these little buggers that nobody I know has any use for. I hate when I am down to the bottom of my paper clip dish at work and there are next to no bigger clips in there and I am left with these puny little clips that are not even necessary whatsoever. Who uses these? Why do we have them? Why are they being mass produced for nobody to use? It’s time for these miniature paper clips to get lost once and for all. 

Part Three comes your way tomorrow!
