Abstinence Is The Only Cure

We've endured losing streaks before.  Usually in February, like this one.  Only those were different because our midget commissioner hadn't ordered a five-month snow day.

This one is horribler, a word I rarely use but it's a real word because I checked.  It's horribler because if there's one thing we learned from The Natural, it's that losing is a disease as contagious as syphilis.  I don't want to catch sypilis and I've taken certain steps over the course of my life to ensure I haven't.  But if losing is contagious like that disease does that mean only the players themselves will catch it or the fans too?  I do not want syphilis. 

Please win. I'm allergic to penicillin and I really dislike Nashville.

It's a Live Blog bitches.  We're all in serious trouble.

I can’t find my blizzard pics from two years ago, but between Dec 24 to 27 we got 35 inches of snow….and then it started blowing….by new years I had a drift completely up the front of my garage.

My kids sledded down it for the next week.

I remember the drifts would be so big we would build forts inside them.

Not that it matters much - - since we have managed to blow more leads of late than the girls on Woodward.

Took the bosses car from the airport late one night.  Cruisin 8 mile and calling the girls an his olde tyme “car phone”. We were responsibly price shopping.  All went well, until the end of the month when the phone bill came in. Seems his wife paid the bills….not happy. Boss not happy. Then he quizzed us…SHTF.  Loved that job. (no pun in ten did)

Climate change is perpetual.  Man made induced climate change is the myth.  I should know, I’m the one with the BEV electric car.

The snow was a heck of a lot of fun.  We built snow forts, hid behind trees and tossed snowballs at cars.  You would probably get dispended from school for doing that now.
