Since the regular season is over, I figured The List would be better moved to Thursdays since I won't be previewing Saturday's games. Sorry The List has been missing for a few weeks. It doesn't necessarily come back with a "bang," but I'll take a decent "pop."
Saturday was a sad day for me. Not because Tim Tebow won the Heisman (which, by the way, I could care less about), but because the only college football was PLAYOFF football and none of those games included teams that I care about.
So, in honor of my sad Saturday, I figured the best way to bring The List back would be to take you through “a day in the life” and let you feel my pain.The Ten Painful Experiences I had on my Football-less Saturday:10. Wake up hungover at 1:00 PM –
Yeah, this is what happens when Russ
and I hang out in Atlanta the night before. We end up at a bar at 2:00 AM talking about doing a podcast for our blogs. Shot specials at Olives? Bad idea, people.9. Go to the computer to check ESPN –
Oh that’s right, they’re talking about the end of the season, the need for a playoff, and some crappy thing called the “Heisman Trophy Presentation.” Apparently four guys who will not be playing in a National Championship game are the candidates. I’m sure one of them will cry when they win it.8. Move on to various blogs –
Well, it seems that everyone else got the memo that UGA wasn’t playing today. Same stuff as Friday. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. Hell, I didn’t update mine either.7. Realize that UGA Hoops is on at 14:00 –
Sweet! Something to cheer for. Turn on the tube to see the Dawgs turn it on Wake Forest. I will admit that I felt weird when I screamed “tackle him!” on a fast break, and “take a knee!” when the lead was comfortably in our hands.6. Fire up the Xbox 360 –
Boogity Boogity Boogity, let’s go racing. Forza Motorsport 2 was my drug of choice and after pimping out a 1970 Chevelle and 2007 Bentley, it became painfully obvious that I haven’t gotten laid in a while.5. Time for lunch –
Microwave a couple of the greasiest frozen pizzas known to man. About halfway through the meal I noticed a weird feeling in my stomach. Oh yeah, that was the liquor from the night before getting pissed off that something was invading its territory.4. Get ready for company holiday party –
I’m a Xmas nut, and my company usually doesn’t disappoint when it comes to quality holiday functions. This year was a little more toned down, but as I go to get ready (i.e. shave and shower) I realize that my beard trimmer wasn’t charged. This wouldn’t normally be a problem, but since I haven’t shaved in two weeks, it was an issue. I trimmed up what I could to keep from looking like a total hobo, and got ready. Then got pissed because I’ve gained about 8 lbs due to the holiday season.3. Get to Holiday party with all intentions of not drinking –
Yeah, that lasted about five minutes. You give me five drink tickets and you’ve got yourself a recipe for me throwing all intentions of staying sober out the window. Nevermind that I spent most of my day hungover and nauseous. We’re talking about FREE ALCOHOL, people.2. Look at cell phone at 10:00 PM and realize you’re more drunk than you should be –
Time to start slamming water. We ain’t driving drunk in Buckhead with all those bars kicking the REALLY drunk people out onto the streets. I do stupid things, but I’m no fool. Wait, here comes a Dawg fan from my office. One shot of Jager to celebrate that Tebow has more Heismans than wins over UGA as a starter? Yeah, I’ll drink to that. What? He cried when he won? Another round, please.1. Realize about halfway home that there was no football on today, so therefore no highlights to watch –
Time to go to Krystals at 12:30 AM for some comfort food. Eat and weep myself to sleep knowing that I’ve now gained 9 lbs. over the holiday season.
So there you have it. Painful to read wasn’t it? Well, try living through it.
God I hope the bowl season starts soon and NEVER ends. I don’t know what I’m going to do on January 8.
Until next time kids.
