Never give up!

Monday, December 9th, 2013 by Dawn Summers

Yesterday, I was at Dawn 2’s birthday gathering for her 29th, 29th birthday —wait… that’s not right — anyway, so it was Patriots sunday, but I was on the road headed to New Jersey.

Thankfully, I have paid an undisclosed amount of money to be able to watch Patriots games on my phone. Of course, we were losing to the hapless Cleveland Browns, so I wasn’t feeling very thankful. I listened as drive after Patriots drive was stalled by the Browns defense. I heard Rob Gronkowski sustain a leg shattering injury and looked down (at a red light for a milisecond, officer) to see him carted off the field to a standing ovation.
And then the Patriots finally scored a touchdown and opted to go for the two point conversion instead of just kicking the easy PAT. I was annoyed. So I was complaining to Alceste. Then with two minutes left in the game, we’re down by 12. And suddenly, Brady is completing every pass and they score an easy touchdown.


“Ooh la di da, now they’re gonna try to get a possession from the on-side kick. The TV stat box says the Patriots haven’t recovered an on-side kick since 1994. I roll my eyes. My eyes, still midroll, do not really see the play. Alceste says the Patriots recover. I think he’s mocking me.

“Shut up.”

“No, really.”

I look at the TV. Play is under review! Sure, enough the Patriots did recover it!

I won’t go into further details, but the Patriots came back to win their third game in a row after trailing at the half.

I feel like the universe is telling me not quit. But I’m going to need to see 7 more Patriots wins like this to really believe it. *whistles*

Boston doesn’t deserve the Patriots

Today is a good day

I feel like how I imagine junkies feel. Hmm… okay, junkies may be the wrong word because that invokes images of vagrancy and drooling heads bobbing up and down on a barely conscious body. How about… a recreational cocaine user? Those are the laughing, talking a mile a minute drug users, yes? Okay, then I feel like how I imagine they feel!

My concentration is crap though! I can’t even get through my TV shows! I just want to listen to sports radio and rewatch clips of Brady lobbing a touchdown pass to Shane Vareen (DUDE!! COUSIN OF TAP DANCER BEN VAREEN!!!) all damn day long. Tee hee. I thought trying to write something would help me focus, but nope. I’m boring myself. Okay, back to WFAN Denver for me. I don’t know how many neck surgeries it’s going to take to repair Payton Manning after all the busses that he has been thrown under today!

Tee Hee

Viva Tommy Touchdown! Let’s GO Patriots win this for Gronkowski’s forearm!

Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, y’all! *slow claps*

VinNay: Did the Patriots cover?

Me: O_o Their cover covered and that cover’s covered.


Patriots clinch playoff berth!

And I got to see it live!! Thanks again to the awesome @notoriouslig and @vero, I seriously had the best football weekend ever… hopefully, I’ll be motivated to write it up one of these days, but honestly, as I’ve said on twitter: Until the Patriots are eliminated from contention this season, I no longer care about anything but getting number 4. Adjust your interactions with me accordingly.

Uh… #noshade *whistles*

The New England Patriots have the same record as the Dolphins. And the Bills. I’ll be in a dark corner sucking my thumb for six and a half days.

Ochocinco remains a Patriot. *swallows vomit*

I probably shouldn’t enter this, right? Since I would likely spend the entire game booing Tim “McVeigh” Thomas for hating America. Although, I’d be with The Gronk and he’ll probably be rooting for the Sabres too.

Hmm. Yo Soy Fiesta!

Denied on the doorstep

Friday, March 16th, 2012 by Dawn Summers

I went to see the Rangers get throttled by the seemingly unstoppable Pittsburgh Penguin pirates at the Garden last night.


Stupid racist Crosby and Letang were back, whilst my main man Lundqvist was sidelined with…um… something. Plus, Captain Cally and DZ were out with real non wuss ass “Theraflu” injuries.

I love going to sporting events with Alceste when I lose because he’s all “you didn’t lose, Dawn. The Rangers did.” And I’m all “Negro, do you see my jersey?” And he’s all “Yes, and it doesn’t say ‘Summers’ on the back AND I’m sure your backwards skating skills are on par with mine.”


These exchanges are WAY less valid when we go to Mets/Braves games and the Mets win and I’m all “SO’S YOUR FACE! We TOTALLY KICKED YOUR ASSES!” And he’s all “O_o Your curveball must be really good!”

Anyway, last night was one of the good going to a game with Alceste days, where I totes didn’t lose and just enjoyed my wine and the conversation from the trashy women behind us. (To which Alceste replied “Um….you might want to say that a little quieter before the trashy women slap you.”)

Again? Valid!

But seriously. These women were like your classic loudmouthed, Long Island accented big girls screaming “GET OFF YOUR ASS GABBY” Or “YOU GOTTA LIFT IT ZOOKY! LIIIFFFTT ITTT” (I also got the headline from their yelling “You’re right on the doorstep! PUT IT IN!” And then I’d think “That’s what she said!”)

And then when the scrum converged in front of the net and I stood up to see (cause we had pretty good seats twenty rows or so behind the net) they would yell “SIDDOWN!”

Terrifying. (As the night went on, I further discovered that one of them had a Rangers themed wedding where all the table numbers referenced Rangers guys like number 2, 30, 1, 9…etc. The bride walked down the aisle to the Rangers goal song and they played clips of classic Rangers wins instead of childhood pics of the bride and groom. Not that I’m ever getting married, but dude, every table is gonna be number 12! Every. One! I don’t wanna hear any follow up questions. LALALALALALA I can’t hear you.)

Oh, when I got to the Garden I found a bar with this awesome bartender who was like “the wine bottles are kind of small…here, I’ll give you two. Don’t tell. Shhh” Wheeee! Love that guy! But then I figured I should get food of some kind and ended up going to the Kosher kiosk cause it was closest. When I got to my seat, I saw that Alceste had gotten food from the same place! I laughed. But then the guy on the other side of me was all “Thank God I’m not sitting next to a Penguins fan.” I don’t know what Alceste had been doing to him before I got there.

Sadly, there were TONS of Penguins fans in attendance. When the Pens scored in the first two minutes (hangs head) there were so many cheers I thought Biron had made the stop even though I saw the lights flashing and the scoreboard change from 0-0 to 0-1.
It was like the time I went to the Riots game in San Diego and there were more Brady jerseys than Chargers fans — JUST BRADY jerseys– never mind the Patriots fans in other jerseys or who weren’t wearing their colors at all.

Alceste, however, is a wretched photographer (though he blames my camera #races) so I didn’t get any good profile pics out of it… but maybe I can convince Ugarles to go with me to the Rangers/Detroit game and we can try again.

But then I think the Rangers better win cause I’m guessing Ugarles won’t be quite so magnanimous in victory.


Not so random question
