I guess Guys are guilty too.Posted: April 12, 2012 | |
i was watching my flyers do battle with the penguins last night with my buddy. i’ve mentioned this kid before (he played goalie for a prominent university) and well….it wasn’t looking good for the flyers. at the end of the first period the pens were up 3-0. we were pissed. we finished our wings, drank our beer and took a collective, “fuck this, i’m going home to scream at the television.” and left the local.
back at the house i was dvr’ing the game, and i watched in disgust. i finally started channel surfing and cancelled the recording. about 10 minutes later i noticed we had scored. what the deuce? shortly after it was 3-2 pens. i called my friend, “DUDE….3-2?” he replied, “yeah, i’m pacing…” i told him right after i cancelled the recording we scored and he fired back, “erase the recording completely. purge it from your dvr.” i told him i had already done that and he mentioned how he bet’s we come back. i told him i had stopped watching the game and he bade me to continue NOT watching that he’d text me when we scored. it was agreed upon and i went on to watching some shit on travel channel.
it’s funny how guys will rationalize game playing or viewing with ANY inane excuse. we can be so superstitious and irrational when it comes to our sports that it can be laughable.
introducing the male hamster, and it’s like the terminator: it can’t be bargained with. it can’t be reasoned with. it doesn’t feel pity, or remorse. And it absolutely will not stop, ever…..
when i brought this up to my buddy he admitted that his pregame routine was pretty ridiculous and his teammates ALL had some odd ritual for before or during a game. one guy wore the same unwashed pair or socks for every game. the one time they got washed he had a bad playing streak for about a month. he refused to wash them ever again. and bro code dictates you DO NOT question or ridicule another guys habit. EVER. oh i can already can hear some of you….”what’s your odd sports custom Danny?” well i’m glad you asked. as i’m sure you all know i’m a Saint’s fan (anyone mentioning the bounty will be fucking banned. just fyi.) well, i refuse to wear a saints jersey of an active player on the roster. last 3 times i had a jersey, the following season….that player was traded or went to shit. so to alleviate that, i now only wear an Archie Manning throwback jersey. and there’s NOTHING anyone can do to get me to wear the jersey of a player i’m a fan of.
so i guess guys are guilty of the hamster as well. oh…btw…….
flyers beat the pens- 4-3 in OT.
so guys….what are some of the crazy hamster shit you’ve done in regards to your team? and ladies…time to throw hubster/bf under the bus- what has he done that made you just shake your head and laugh while watching/playing sports?
