- I was walking Nathan before we went over to River City for dinner and saw a game on the main field behind our building. Lo and behold it was softball, and it was the Giants. Yes, the same youngsters I mentioned last Sunday. They were taking on the Nationals - who apparently are one of the other two teams in this league besides the Giants. The "coaches" didn't seem to have their suits on though which I found odd since they wore them for practice.
- Seven twenty-somethings playing softball on the other field. They were able-bodied humans, but had no idea how to do any of the baseball/softball basics. They struggles catching routine pop-ups. The guy couldn't get the hang of arcing it in there over the plate for his counterparts to hit. And when a guy did hit one, I heard him say, in his nasally voice, "Owww, that one hurt. It hit right off the knob!" Something tells me that's not the only knob that guy holds on to.
- A left-hander teaching a Russian-looking woman how to field ground balls. Funny thing was, she looked more athletic and better at the fielding part than the douche teaching her. I hope she wasn't paying him for a lesson.
- A lady teaching her dog to shit on a newspaper, on the grass, in the park. Odd.
- Two people walked into River City and asked for something to be put on the television. I took three guesses, Lindsay one. She was right - the NBA. I've never seen someone actually want to watch an NBA game. If it's on when I get there, fine. But never have I heard someone ask to watch that misery.
- Three guys walk into River City. To watch The Masters and cheer for Tiger Woods (he choked). One kid was cheering so hard for Tiger that after he missed an easy tap-in for Eagle, his baseball glove fell on the ground. Why the hell did he bring his baseball glove? His two friends didn't have any gloves with them. We all know who the tool is.
- AFV on Channel 7 in seven minutes. Quite possibly one of the best shows (and longest running) on television. Wipeout, Modern Family, The Middle, Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Rules of Engagement are all above AFV, but who doesn't like to laugh at other peoples expense? If you think it's you, you're lying to yourself.
That's where I will be for the next hour of my life - watching Tom Bergeron and his corny-ass commentary. I just hope they don't pull that bullshit segment where they put his face on all the people and say it chronicles his life or whatever. Just show people wiping out, old people taking headers at weddings, or dogs doing funny stuff. We don't watch to see TB.
Goodnight all, and enjoy the rest of your Sunday. Tomorrow I have to change a rim in the gym - exciting, I know. Eighty degrees outside and I'll be cooped up in a gym changing a freaking basketball rim that'll probably get ruined over the summer when the gym turns into an open house for the entire Five Boroughs.
Too-da-loo mother truckers!
