You may have heard about an American Olympian being trapped in his bathroom in Sochi. Contrary to those reports, it wasn’t Johnny Quinn, it was me. That’s where I’ve been. I know you’ve missed me. Well, maybe the column if not me. Anyways, TWatD is back and raring to go! Enjoy the misery.
I’m sorry I haven’t been around in a couple of weeks. I can come up with a couple of excuses. Mrs. Diggity hasn’t been feeling all that well so I’ve been focusing on her well-being. I like to say that my weekly column has been preempted by the Olympics…I’m so proud of the Men’s basketball team. Big wins against UNM, CSU, and UNLV. They’ve moved back into almost being a bubble team. I’m cautiously optimistic….I don’t care that Miller Lite is in a throwback can. Unless you put a good product in that can, you’re putting a dress on a pig…I was really impressed with both the USA Men’s and Women’s hockey teams. And I’m glad that the women won the Silver. It looked like the men decided that Bronze wasn’t good enough and quit against Finland. If you don’t feel like representing the country 100% of the time, turn down the spot on the team…It’s good to see someone from ‘nsync doing so well. No. Not Timberlake. Congratulations, Joey Fatone, on your ad deal with Bosley Hair Restoration…Who was the first person that said “Let’s ski 50km and let’s put it on the very last day of the Olympics.”? If I was one of those idiots, sorry, elite athletes, I’d want a 31 mile ski race to be on the first day so I could recover for the Closing Ceremony….It’s fun to see my wife all hopped up on migraine medication trying to tweet. She’s not making any sort of sense. Epic….I’m confused with all of these diet and sensitive stomach dog foods. For heaven’s sake! Dogs drink from toilets and eat their own poop. How sensitive can their tummies be?…How do I feel about the Olympics? I watched them. Twitter and the 24 hour news cycle ruined them for me. And, for some reason, NBC Sports Network would show live events in the morning and then NBC would replay those same events as their prime time line up. Like we wouldn’t notice….Hey Subway is selling pizza now! What’s that? Flatizza? No it’s pizza. Don’t come at me with a pizza and try to tell me it’s not. Are you taking bong rips with Michael Phelps?…I’m not sure what to watch now that I’m out from under the bewitching spell of Bob Costa’s Double Sochi Pinkeye….NASCAR is back. Apparently so is Dale, Jr. I’m not a huge fan of racing. Probably because they aren’t ambi-turners (points if you know the movie)….Not a good look, Raymond Felton. How are you going to point a gun at your wife? Did she make you that mad? I realize the Knicks are that bad but wow. That’s really not a good look at all sir….If you don’t know your baseball history, please pray you don’t become part of Buck Showalter’s team. You may have to write a one-page essay about your lack of knowledge. But, really, who doesn’t know who Frank Robinson is (if you are a baseball fan)?…Why is anything that Aaron Hernandez does anymore relevant news? So he got in a prison altercation. He’s an alleged triple-murderer now and not a professional football player. He’s not news….Wednesday night was a bad one for both the Men’s and Women’s basketball teams. The guys never had a chance although Mikey and Ryan had great games. The gals were down by over 20 and forced overtime but still came up short. We are all still behind you. Finish strong….And just when you thought there wasn’t anything left for reality shows to grab on to, along comes “Game of Arms”. You guessed it. An arm wrestling reality show. SMH….I have mentioned that I like watching boxing. Typically it’s Friday Night Fights. The fighting isn’t always upper echelon but Teddy Atlas has the right amount of crazy to keep me interested….I hate to say this but telling us where Tiger Woods is at in a golf tournament is the equivalent of telling us where Danica Patrick is in a NASCAR race. Pretty close to far from contention. At least Tiger used to be a champion. Right, Danica?…A commercial came on tv but I wasn’t really paying attention and the tag line was something about “…the Power of a Period.”. My first thought was about how classless are tampon commercials getting. It was a Metro PCS commercial. I’m dumb sometimes….I know I’ve mentioned farmersonly.com in my column before. Their tag line is “City Folks Just Don’t Get It”. I beg to differ. They do actually. They created the internet….Both the Men’s and Women’s teams took it to Wyoming this week. The Women had an easier time of it. The Men, on the other hand, decided to give the Cowboys get a 15 point head start. Way to chip away and get the win, guys….Here’s the soapbox moment of the week – There is no way in hell and breakfast that some people can like EVERY good team. That, sir or madam, makes you a bandwagon fan and you are a fraud. *Jumps off the soapbox*…The song of the week says it all. Have a great week everyone! And, as always, GO BRONCOS!
