I apologize for not blogging yesterday, but it was for good reason. I was too busy watching the JETS BEAT THE FUCKING PATRIOTS!!!
As an obsessive sports fan for about twenty years, I don’t think I’ve ever experienced a more satisfying win than what transpired last night. Beating the heavily favored rival patriots in their own house after they gave us a 45-3 thrashing just a couple of months ago on national television… how sweet it is!
I really, really don’t want to be overconfident. In fact, I was mentally prepared for a loss each of the last two weeks. I’m afraid that if I get too excited this week, I’ll just be setting myself up for disappointment. Thus, I will just revel in this victory for the time being, and let the cards fall as they may. If the Jets are meant to be in the Super Bowl, then it shall happen.
Then it shall happen.
It was pretty sweet overlooking the city skyline and seeing the Empire State Building covered in green lights. Let’s hope it stays that way for a long time.
By the way, remember a couple of weeks ago when I said that I was a prophet? Believe me or not, but this was my facebook status two months ago, the night the Jets got walloped by the Patriots, 45-3.
Yeah, so… about that…
I’m so happy that I don’t even mind all the Jets bandwagon fans that have suddenly appeared on Facebook. It still humors me though, because those fans only appear when things are going really well. They never experience the bad times, and therefore they don’t understand that this doesn’t happen very often. There is pain and suffering that comes with the joy and ecstasy, and the true fans have experienced it in spades. Thus, we really appreciate how special this is. So I plan to soak up every last minute of this current high.
And not to make this particular post completely sports related, I should point out that Jersey Shore is on tonight.
I just want to say that I am flabbergasted, that’s right… FLABBERGASTED, that this show is still popular. At first, I gave people the benefit of the doubt, because it was new and trendy,
During season two, I started to become a little concerned. However, I did notice a divide. There were the people who just watch it for pure comedic purposes, and only to laugh at the assholes on the show. And then there’s the people who actually genuinely enjoy the show, who frequently quote the show, and attempt to emulate them in their own lives. People who fall under the latter are truly disgraceful. They might even be worse than the actual people on the show. At least they make money.
However, I did at least notice that the show was starting to wane a little in popularity during the end of season two. So I figured that come season three, the show would become irrelevant. Nope. People’s interest in the show seems to be renewed.
I laugh when people complain about how much money that the douchebags on the show make. YOU’RE the reason why they make so much money. YOU are the ones that make them popular.
Did you know that Snooki wrote a book? That’s right. Snooki. Wrote a book. She is a published author.
As somebody who writes for a living, and one day hopes to eventually write a book himself, this makes me die a little inside. There are so many people in this world that have the talent to write a book, but can not get the recognition or the backing to do so. And yet, Snooki, in between taking shots of jagermeister and getting gangbanged by guido scumbags that will inevitably give her chlamydia, wrote a book.
