Ok I am going to break a rule here. Well, really we only have like two rules and since I write the most and really I made the rules I think I can fucking break them. I am going to talk a little bit about sports. A few weeks or so ago Nick brought up something on Twitter that Hockey is the best sport to watch and I immediately disagreed because lets face it hockey is America's number 5 sport. If you need to know it goes like this : Football, Hot dog eating, 24 election coverage, Game of Thrones/The Walking dead ( depending the season), Hockey and baseball. Yeah America's past time has lost some of its flair but it's coming back , once Bryce Harper and Mike Trout put it together.
But basically like Nick and I do we tweeted at each other for a few minutes because we are 14 year old girls about what sport is the most is the most exciting sport to watch the last few minutes of. Or something that made more sense but around the topic I want to talk about. So I want to talk about which sports moment are the most exciting to watch. Now Obviously its tough to get things like the most recent Stanley cup victory goal because A. It just fucking ended and B. I didn't watch it because I don't like hockey but I respect the effort.
So now I have to set limits. I am going to scan Youtube for some of the most exciting clips. Some I remember and some I just throw random words together to make a description.Look it's 12 and I'm riding the buzz from the new CBS show Under the Dome.... It's as dumb as it sounds. So I will give a bit of a description to set the mood and some context so you can get into the feel for moment.
Soccer - ahhhhh Fuck soccer. Watch Bend it like Beckham if you want to see a soccer goal.
Football-If you watch any close football game in slowmotion with "Classic Battle" playing you get all jacked up and ready for a helmet smashing, heart stopping, Tim Tabooing finally that will leave you either shouting in victory or crying in defeat like a little girl that is just humiliating the whole world. So with that build up and my New Yorkittude what do you think I am going to pick? Super Bowl 42 the Catch. Lets get this out there. The Giants played the heavy favorite New England Patriots who were 18-0 at the time. So the Giants go up 10-7 with under 3 minutes to go. The Whole time it was how was Eli Manning going to match with Tom Brady. Then the Pats scored a touchdown to go up by 4. Locked in Pats win right? Not today, like a fucking surgeon Eli cut up the secondary to go to 3rd and l5. Eli is not known for his cat like balance so when he was rushed from all sides and grabbed people thought it was over. So he throws this duck that Tyree caught on his head. Cray Cray . They later score and the prettiest of fade patterns in the endzone. Thus Eli Manning is a legend and David Tyree bought one free year and a place in the ring of honor even though he caught like 5 career passes.
Kickball-What ever this is. Fantastic display of athleticism , teamwork, and pure determination. The pitcher rolls the hardest screwball in the history of the game, the kicker got a chunk of the sphere but Nelly No quit closes the gap and with a Veteran slide keeps the ball live long enough until her left fielder can close the door. 100% heart right there. Love it.
Beer Pong - Just this whole thing right here.It's like Val Halla for bros. Just the dedication these guys put forth is outstanding. It's what makes America great. Forget that we are scraping the bottom of the barrel in education, forget that our health care system is a joke, forget that it has taken months to get people back into their homes after major storms forget all of that noise. This is America right here. If this was sponsored by Denny's and Coors Original it would explode red white and blue.
This is were I am going to stop. It's late and I think I would offend some people if I continued. But yeah... Sports and shit like that. Not bad. I will get back to my normal shit later. I have another day off so I will post. Hopefully I will be the 100th post. But knowing my luck I wont be.
