How about those Aggies, eh?
Now, being an A&M student, I’m going to try to stay as bipartisan as possible – but wasn’t that just such a great game? You don’t even have to be an A&M fan to appreciate that one. In fact, if you’re an Oregon, Kansas State, Notre Dame, or any other 1-loss team in the top-ten of the BCS rankings, you’re probably ecstatic over the result of that game. Alas, as is with just about every Aggie victory, the media still finds a way to rain on the maroon parade; this week’s Pièce de résistance being that “Texas A&M just ruined the SEC’s chances at winning a 7th straight national championship” – and to this statement, I only have one rebuttal: “I’m sorry we haven’t just rolled-over in our first year in the conference **cough**Mizzou**cough**.” That being said, I think it’s just about time we all heard from the most annoying bandwagon fan since Jack Nicholson:
Sure, Thanksgiving’s next week – and don’t get me wrong, it’s going to be great and all – but, honestly, I’m more excited about the other November holiday: Movember. The time of the year where men finally have a valid excuse to grow out their glorious lip-spinach! For those of you privileged enough to participate in this stoic tradition, here’s a few pointers from The Master himself:
OK, despite my “facial hair difficulties” (I’ve kinda got the whole “Mike Miller thing thing going on), I’m a proud participant in No-shave November/Movember – but it’s more just for small-talk than anything else. Anything to help me avoid another awkward house party mishap like this one:
This next video is just too ridirkulous to not include this week:
*Caution: this video contains soccer-related content. Viewer discretion is advised.
You know what they always say: once you learn how to do a bicycle kick, you never forget.
OK, I promise that that’s the last soccer-related video I’ll do this year… that way we won’t have to worry about any more awful soccer-related jokes either - two birds with one stone.
Allow me to try to redeem myself with more from a real sport; here’s some dudes from ESPN who apparently just finished watching The Princess Bride:
I guess that goes to show that, no matter how hard the media can try, American football will just never be as lame as European football.
Ah, crap – someone’s been filming my pooch:
After my dog got confiscated from the cops, I decided to try and teach this trick to my cat, but it only seemed interested in stealing tampons from peoples’ purses.
Alrighty guys, that’s going to do it for this week. I hope everyone has an excellent Thanksgiving – make sure to try and consume as much turkey and football as possible this year!
- I seriously don’t know what to do with all these tampons that my kitten stole
