mucus, rehearsals, football, and GI Joe
It’s been a few days, so, since I should be in bed by now, I figure I’d throw in a wee update.
BTW – if I fall off the planet in the near future, it’s because:
1) I’ve contracted some kind of head cold/sinus infection thing. I’m fine, except my head feels like it’s been crammed with rubber cement and saw dust, so I can’t breathe. Beyond that, just peachy.
2) Bloody Poetry rehearsals have begun in full swing. I reckon their going okay. I’m mostly sitting there like a cast extra from Awakenings – mostly because of #1 above.
I know this is a tad dated, but I can’t resist. The following is for every time that jamesx called my answering machine last season, screaming “HOLY SHIT!! Did you see that touchdown?! Oh my God! Jurevicius, baby!”
So, how bout it jamesx? Did you see that non-Jerry Rice-like maneuver where he ran hard as fuck into that lump of crap on top of Alstott’s shoulders? Even the A-hole Train was having problems seeing straight after that little collision.
Okay – the two dumbest moments of the Pansies/Fuckinqueers game:
1) 1:50 left in the game, and you’re leading by 6. Your team hasn’t made a run for more than 4 yards all game. You’re 3 & at least 8. If you make the first down, you can suck up at least 1:20 off the clock. Do you run? No. But the Pansies did. Why? I dunno, but it cost them the ball, the Fucs got it back and (no thanks to Keyshawn “Don’t throw it in the numbers or I’ll drop it” Johnson) got the touchdown that tied the game.
2) You’re 10 minutes into overtime. It’s like 3 & 15. You’re somewhere around the 50. First down can mean a field goal. Blow it, and you punt it, and probably won’t see the ball again. You’re up against #2 defense in the league, but you’ve been passing pretty well against them. Do you toss it back 5 yards to your RB? No. But Tampa did. And Gruden did not look happy about it, which leads me to believe it was an audible by Brad “If they bring back old school intentional grounding rules I’m out of a job” Johnson.
But my very favorite part of the whole game – my MVP – Martin “Arrogant Fuck” Gramatica. No cartwheels from the Argentine. If I was a Bucs fan, I’d still hate this guy.
Alright, jamesx, I’ll stop. You have the rest of the season to bask in your glory. I don’t get many games like this past Sunday’s. I’m sure you can start up again next Sunday when they trod all over Atlanta. Just remember this – in second to last play in the end zone at the bottom of the fourth, Jurevicius wouldn’t have dropped that ball.
I’ll leave y’all with this. There’s another one out there that’s better, but I need to find a dependable link to it. Until then, enjoy.
