This is a new installment which I just write and joke about what's on my mind at the moment. The intent of these posts are to provide content when working on big articles (my next article might be in installments because I just have too much to say for a single article. It's already at 900 words and I still have several points to bring up). It's not like we have the readership to really need this but a blog without regular content looks abandoned. These posts will also be more free style than my main articles and not nearly as heavily edited. So without further ado...
Thoughts on the Super Bowl
I have to be honest. I was not really looking forward to this game. The Steelers in yet another Super Bowl? No thanks. Add in the fact that I don't feel one way or the other about Green Bay leads to a Super Bowl I could care less about.
I barely watched it. I put it on the TV but spent the game dicking around on the internet. I didn't watch most of the commercials either because I don't give a shit about them. Also, when some people claim the commercials are the best part, what does that say about the main program?
I'm glad the rapist lost though. I always thought Ben Roethlisberger came off as a raging donkey boner.
My girlfriend is watching Glee as I write this. I never understood the appeal to this show. It's cheeky and fun with some drama mixed in, which is usually a good format for quality, but I just can't get into it. It's like a much cooler version of High School Musical except only a few of the actors look the proper age. Also, saying it's a cooler version of a shitty musical isn't saying much.
As some of you may know, particularly those from MHH that found this post via Twitter, I am a huge Avs fan. Unfortunately my beloved Avs are falling out of the sky like the Luftwaffe over London circa 1940. While the return of Peter Forsberg is intriguing, I am spending time during games doing other things rather than giving the games my attention.
I'm not the type of fan to call somebody else a non-fan for not watching because I am starting to get turned off from watching many more games this season. I am turning into one of those fans. My reasoning is, why keep watching something that is only going to make you depressed and angry? It doesn't make me any less of a fan. I just don't like feeling like crap.
They are not out of the playoff race yet but its getting dire. If they don't turn it around soon, I will start looking forward to the NHL entry draft. That's right. The Avs might be so bad, I might watch a draft over an actual game.
Fucking hell. I need a shot.
