silly mammalian labels

Uff da - my legs ache mighty bad today from last night's practice. I was on the opposition of a 15-man team, and we only had about 7 providing defense. That meant me stopping a lot of big fat bears as best I could. We have a lot of new recruits though, which is nice. People are starting to buzz about the Mark Bingham Cup in Dublin in June 2008. It's going to be a pretty penny to get there, but their fields (pitches) and facilities will certainly be better than the last tournament, which was basically in a circuit party format, replete with lube stands at pitchside. I didn't get that part.

I didn't mean to imply in yesterday's post about genuine Midwestern friendliness that any behavior south of the Wisconsin/Illinois border is necessarily rude. I was talkin' about the I-95 'tude that you get around here. I LOVE good Southern boy charm, opening doors for people, being polite to your mamma and all that. I hear tell it's an act, but it works on me, hook, line and sinker. Southern gentlemen are an exotic species in the Northern states. Midwesterners are friendly, Southern boys are polite (usually). Then when they move here something sucks out their souls and makes them unfriendly and impolite. Heavy metals in the water, perhaps?

I thought this was funny:
the drama llama

Llamas make a very nasal hum of concern when they're annoyed. Then they spit green goo on you. I didn't think they were worth the wool, I prefer my goldfish who don't spit on me.

Yes, I have viewed the YouTube video link and website for the new Bear band sensation BearForce1. Thank you for notifying me. I don't think this is the last we'll hear from them, as I think the breeders are gonna eat that shit up like they embraced The Village People. Not that I mind, as that act of acceptance will be the deathknell of both BearForce1 and the entire Bear scene. Then we can all brush off our hands and be who we want to be - sans silly mammalian labels.

Llamas also have soft, fuzzy lips. I think I'm gay 'cause I was kissed by a man llama (llamale?) when I was a child.

Southern boys can be very charming... no doubt. But we get fired up easily too. Usually, if you insult our favorite sports team (mainly football)... we'll say "sheeeeeeeeeeet!" and roll up our sleeves for a good old fashioned brawl. ;)

I get annoyed when dem damn Yankees and Midwesterners (Ohio) laugh at my accent and try to get me to say certain things. I'll say whatever they request, and they'll laugh each and every time. I had this woman from Ohio do that to me at the Bourbon Pub one afternoon. After awhile, I got POed when I realized I was being her pet monkey making her friends laugh.

The drawl is kind of funny sometimes. I have been in situations where Northerners have said "What did you just say?" And I have also had to say "What? You are talking too damn fast! What did you say?" And E.Shrew usually has to tell them to speak to me in Southern and then conversation can progress. (LOL)
