I Kinda Watched Football Yesterday

I Kinda Watched Football Yesterday

Every Sunday, I spend some time watching football. I also, can’t focus, don’t like spending too much time at one place, and don’t like football that much.

Here are the thoughts I collected:

– We started the day by checking out the inspirational marathoners. BTW it was New York Marathon Day.

– My wife and I then made our way to Long Island City to a Marathon Party. Is there a better way to celebrate pushing the physical limits of the human body than drinking before noon?

– Drinking alcohol in coffee containers is a popular theme of mine.

– That’s a bloody mary. (someone is clearly drinking a bloody mary behind me.

– Let’s do a little marathon humor, shall we?

– The following runners were listening to podcasts while attempting to accomplish one of the most difficult things a human can do.

– Dunkin Donuts decided to sponsor many of the runners by giving them free pink and orange hats, which led to me yelling into a bullhorn, “America Runs on (whatever name was written on their shirt)” Brava, marketing department. I love your milk-filled coffee.IMG_4509IMG_7669 IMG_7670 IMG_7672 IMG_7673 IMG_7674 IMG_7675 IMG_7676

– There was a grunge band playing grunge hits. The highlight of their set was the grunge version of “I Kissed a Girl”IMG_7722 IMG_7726

– Which made me do this:IMG_7729 IMG_7727

РWe then made our way into Greenpoint, where we drank more and proceeded to watch the J-E-T-S, JETS! JETS! JETS! S-U-C-K, SUCK! SUCK! SUCK!

– Rooting for Michael Vick makes me more conflicted than drone strikes. That means I’m stupid, right?

– We then headed to Williamsburg for Perogies. I cannot pronounce the name of the bar and I won’t try. For the record, it was Dziupla, are you happy?

– One of the greatest aspirations that I have in my life is being cool enough to flip my brim up.wesley snipe

– When I was watching the marathon, I think I saw a guy with a poopie in his pantalones.

– I saw someone try to crunch a beer on their head. He was not successful and his yelps of pain while I laughed loudly will stand as a high water mark in the history of my life.

– Another aspiration that I have is to someday say “check it” before I convey information and have someone intelligent take me seriously.

– I saw a commercial for the latest Paul Thomas Anderson movie. I think that it’s amazing that Joaquin Phoenix always plays someone new, different, distinctive, and real. I also think it’s amazing that I always find those people irritating.

– Before I leave you and watch, jeez, I guess Homeland, let me share with you a thought. Animals are awesome. Animal heads are awesome, I would prefer they were fake, but I’m not regimented on this belief. I believe that every animal head should be wearing a Yankees Jersey, sunglasses, or be in some other way adorned. They are there for our humor. This may be a white trash belief. However, it is a belief.
