Go Team

Curmudgeons periodically disengage from society.  I randomly go “off line” for periods as short as twenty minutes or as long as the 1980’s.  I’ve been ignoring all media this week.

I just discovered that, in addition to some “liveliness” in Egypt, there is a sporting event today? Apparently steroidally enhanced men will engage in some sort of battle involving a non-spheroidal ball?  So long as there’s beer I’ll watch it.  I’m all for mayhem.

However, I lost interest in seriously following any sports when they stopped using swords and lions.  Also I’ll never forgive Baseball for going on strike in 1981; I intend to pass on my hatred of baseball for at least seven generations.  Karma’s a bitch!

I’m about to attend a sports related social event and I’m pretty sure beer will be involved so I am motivated to feign interest.  In the interest of cultural unity I’ll offer my usual cheer: “Team A Rocks…Team B Sucks…Kill The Ref!”  Can I have my beer now?

I can't fully appreciate any sporting event less manly than this.

P.S.  I refuse to acknowledge commercials.  A few years ago I heard a radio news “personality” comment on a TV news program about a proposed Superbowl commercial that didn’t air.  That’s when I knew most journalists wouldn’t know a news story if it landed on their hairpiece and journalist schools should be converted to something useful…like a Wal-Mart.  Go Team A!

    Did Team A win? I don’t think I was paying attention.

  2. I never saw the end of the game. When I realized my tax dollars were paying for a Chevy Volt ad I had a coronary and died.

    They revived me because someone had to go to work on Monday to pay taxes. According to http://www.chevrolet.com/volt/ I can buy a $40,000 car with a $7,500 subsidy and wind up with something lamer than a Honda Fit. What would we do without stimulus money?

    Also, Team B sucked!
