The way I have been attacking airlines (AND our national railroad… Amtrak) lately, I’m guessing you clicked on this expecting to see me in full-on tirade mode, but, SURPRISE!!!!!
Customer service agent at the ticket counter was VERY friendly! As were the ones at the gate. And the flight attendants are quite pleasant AND we took off from the Albuquerque Sunport ON TIME. ABQ doesn’t put nearly as many planes in the air as DCA, LGA, LAX or ORD, I’m sure but you know what??? I’ll take these good flying experiences wherever I can get them.
Hey!!! Speaking of Kudos: I caught the first half of that Broncos-Chiefs game and OMG… 👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾 Give it up for Father Time, ladies and gentleman, Peyton Manning leaves me scratching my head again and again. Gives THIS old guy hope for the future of old guys playing a young guy’s game. Funny. I don’t even have a problem calling myself old but I often ridicule “kids” on Tumblr who like to refer to me as/call me old, LOL!!!
Please. Step. Off. Of. My. Lawn.
If you are wondering where I am headed, I’m headed HOME. H. Oh. Emmy. Home. DC. The Watergate City. Since this election cycle is in full swing, I’m going to try to make it into the city and do some goofy, funny, political, selfie shenanigans. Maybe I will start with that tacky ass MLK monument. I ***DO NOT*** approve of the Dr. Martin Luther King Memorial. It’s tacky and half-assy.
Hashtag: Dood Retire Already.
Kobe Bryant. Shaking. My. Head. Father Time is undefeated. Hang ’em up and have some dignity. Your body called it quits two? Three seasons ago??? Yet you persist. Like a persistent fucking gnat. Or a nagging cough that continues to linger long after the cold has gone. Like… Dood. Make way. This ain’t your game anymore. Make room for the next generation of superstars. Anthony Davis. Kyrie Irving. Stephen Curry. We want to see THEM shine. Not you. You have FIVE NBA championships under your belt. You don’t need any more. You’re not *getting* any more. No. More. Rings.
BTW: Corporate letters??? They work. When done properly. I wigged out on Amtrak over something that was kind of stupid and trivial that went down on my trip out to NYC on the Lakeshore Limited last week and I’ll be damned if I didn’t get an apology, a travel voucher and their reassurance that they were going to talk to the…woman…that pissed me off (as well as her superiors.) I don’t like spending my hard earned money with airlines, hotels and bus lines (and Amtrak, who I have ALWAYS been a proponent of, mind you) and getting shit on in return for my continued loyalty.
I’m taking a few weeks off to start on my book because I promised the world, as well as myself, a book. Don’t know where to start but I’m going to start cranking and see what comes out. Hopefully, it will live up to what I am hyping it up to be. We will see.
The Noo. Yawk. Yankees. As everyone who knows me and/or follows me on twitter knows, I’m not feeling very confident about our chances in the quest for a place in the postseason. Yea, we may get into that one game wild card game, but do we REALLY have a chance? Yea, uh, no. Hashtag? Better Luck Next Year.
So, the GOP Clown Car keeps on rolling. It reminds me of that Jamie Fox movie where he plays the homeless musical genius and when they flashed back to his childhood in Detroit, you saw that old car engulfed in flames, coasting down the street??? LOL!!! That’s what the Republicans are offering this next time around. Trump is EXCITING but is he reeeeeeeeeeeally going to get people to come out and cast their votes for him, come Election Day??? I’m starting to believe the conspiracy theorists that he just may be a plant, inserted into the race by the Democrats to fuck up ANY chance the GOP has of winning the White House in 2016.
Speaking of clown cars: How about that Rex Ryan!?!?! LOL!!! I haven’t seen Upstate New York this fired up since the days of old. That was the late-1980’s/early 90’s. WOW!!! Do they have what it takes or nah? The correct answer is… Bueller? Bueller? Buuuuuuuhuellerrr?????
The correct answer is Tom Brady.
On to the Lightning Round…
I have soooooooooooooooo much to say!!! Bristol Palin. The New York Knicks. Kim Davis. So many people to talk shit about, so little time. That being said, I will probably sign off now. Knowing how I am on these long-ass flights? I’ll be back.
