Where does the good go

Monday Night Football at Ugarles’

I could feel sorry for the Redskins, but their racist logo makes everything bad that happens to them just feel like karma.
Needless to say, the football on ESPN watching turned into “hey check out this Lawrence Taylor highlight clip” on you tube! However, Ugarles failed to produce any Sidney videos to supplant the footage of Sammy walking by himself at 11 months as the cutest thing ever! That kid has been trying to walk FOREVER! And I’ve been faking footage of him walking for like almost forever…what? If the government could do it with the moon landing…
Anyway, so yeah, cool hanging outness produces classic hilarity:

Me: I’ll pick you up, but you can’t make fun of my outfit.
Ugarles: Am I *that* guy?
Me: No, but it’s *that* outfit.
Ugarles: (pauses) Well, I’m going to have to see it, might be worth taking the subway home.

Ugarles: (As Jim Zorn’s imaginary twitterfeed) Who called the play to throw the ball on the ground at the 4th and goal? Me, I probably would have run it.

And then he laughs out loud and says “I have to tweet that!” And grabs his laptop. This makes me laugh and say “I have to blog that!” I grab my blackberry, but blogging is so much more in depth and difficult, that I couldn’t finish till I got home. Like a nutritious and filling meal that one prepares at home.

His cat tried to kill me twice, but I was in a rocking chair, and everybody knows that’s like kryptonite to a cat.
Note to self: buy rocking chair. And rent that Goldie Hawn coaches a high school football team movie.

    Kind of a misquote but the right idea. That wasn’t the one I had to tweet, though. This was.

  2. Dawn Summers Says:

    Hhahahaha Yes! And we were wondering what Zorn was reading when Campbell was driving down the field. We settled on “comics”

    I’m glad someone is watching the Redskins’ games. I’ve given up. Grew up watching every game on TV, every week, with my dad and brother. After 15 years plus of mediocre crap, I’d rather spend my Sundays (or, Monday nights) doing something else. Anything else.

  4. Dawn Summers Says:

    After watching one game, I totally understand that impulse.

    I too grew up watching the Redskins with my dad and brother. I learned at an early age to say “Go Cowboys!” My brother now lives in Western Maryland and most of the folks there are Steeler fans so I can’t really say “Go Cowboys!” to him any more. Though the old Redskin fan in him still gives me a lot of grief for being a Cowboy fan.
