A retrospective on the inner workings of love, flying pancakes, mensa disasters, dandelion cookies, number bending, super salt, bubblegum oysters, chicken spit, crystal kidneys, guerilla carrots, polychromatic tofu, paraphysics, tender vigilanties, black sand, phillastine placebos, wood soup, buttered shuttlecocks, apostrophe training, fish whips, bleeding speed, plastic fantastic lobster telephones, venus drug rehab, clowns on fire, kiosks on a leash, marshmello overcoats, bottled light, fried blood, unbridled hyperthyroidism, folding wine, amygdula tickling, fainting in coils, hamburgers for the apocalypse, plastic memes, and conjugal fritters.....well...the love parts true

Cleveland, the beastie boys and spanish


Daddy was not looking forward to traveling by bus to Cleveland with the degenerative team mates. But the trip was not bad at all. The team was overly occupied with what PSP games were brought, the underarmour everyone else was wearing and what their girlfriends looked like (yes they came on the bus). That left me out of most of the latest sex jokes and the endless texting back and forth to each other. I had a farewell to arms which I didn’t dare attempt to read and so I skipped my usual mp3 selections and went with old school dribble (run DMC, and the beastie boys (of all things)) I have a combination of head bobbing and laughing..
We got there and I was in love. The cities architecture (who knew?)was easy on the eyes. We all broke up to get something to eat and I darted down a side street and found mi pueblo. It was satisfying to sit at the bar window and see the rest of the team continue past to ….quiznos. I talked to an old guy at the bar and used my Spanish which I love to torture whenever possible.. A few coronas later and I was ready to kcik someee cincintttii foobal hiinnneee…… Seriously I only had two.
Game time and I got taped up. I was sooo close to blocking a punt which was great..it forced them to turnover possession and give us a good field position. Brandons knee will need surgery after he got rocked on a kickoff. Not good.
The trip back was nasty. Nuff said.

Mi pueblo sounds muy delicioso. I never understand why people choose chain restaurants when they visit a new place - where's the fun in that? And nice architecture in Cleveland? Did you have dos cervezas or dos dozen?? (My 8th grade Spanish only goes so far. lol)I've never been there so I'll have to take your word for it.

Sorry to hear about the injury and the return trip.

@ violet thanks! I had dos pacificos (cerveza!!!) Now if I can get to use my italian or japanese that would be killer!!!!Yeah the city had more character than I had given it credit for.....it was 7 hours to drive and that was plenty for me. I dont think they are on our schedule again so thats probably the only trip there for me this year!!!

thanks for looking that up! I guess i must have been romanticizing urban life.....anywhere!!!! Im not saying i would rush to Clevelands defense if we go to war with clevelandites...or that michaelangelo would have said "now THATS impressive!!!" I guess i just miss the activity...Did however apply for a job there..out of the blue when i got back... BTW Harold and Maude...great flick

So, you are seriously going to have to explain the game of football to me, then I might understand... However, Run DMC, wicked tune choice, how about Bootsy Collins, or Zap & Roger, or maybe a little LL, 'I'm that Type of Guy'...
