WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO NOW? March 25 2014
(Fri, Feb 28, 2014)
The uneasiness started about Tuesday. By Wednesday, in full Olympic Withdrawals. Feeling better today, but why must you go, pigeon-roasting flame? Some hard-nuts may blow off the Olympics as a mega-brand assimilation session, but they still get to me. Don’t tell me as a kid you didn’t run around the house imagining your own gold medal victory, crushing the World’s best athletes in your path.
What is amazing now is the time difference between a shiny medal and emotional problems. How do you live with training your whole damn life to lose by one one-hundredth of a second? It’s like now..to now (actually much shorter than that). It is hard to fathom how little time that is. Oh well, at least everybody got a free stray dog. They should have a warning halfway through each race to alert those that have no chance of winning. At least they would have time to get creative and go out in a blaze of glory. “Man, look at that ski-pole air guitar mastery, what a champ!” No medal, but you live in highlight reel infamy.
So unless you are staying home in DVR denial, we are offering an Olympics Recovery Program at the brewery this weekend. You get a Revolver glass, live music, sunshine and beers for $10 USA money or 362 Rubles (I dare you. We will take them). The band will be H.R. & The Service Reps. Food will be vended by Yater’s Caters (chicken & beef fajitas, pulled pork sandwiches, and ‘Merican Frito Pies).
BTW, how creepy was Vladimir Putin? It was like he was having a staring contest with everyone there. I guess he is just not happy with his shirt on. (KGB to show up here in 5, 4, 3, 2,
