|"GIVE ME THE MUTHER-|
This revelation arises out of a conversation I overheard last week between two women while I was sitting in a waiting room. (I'm not going to identify the location because why insult two individuals when you have the opportunity to offend an entire segment of society?) The dialogue went down something like this:
Woman A: "Did you hear that the Ravens game is going to be blacked-out on TV this Sunday?"
Woman B: "Really? (agitated) They better not, because I love those night games."
|"Maybe there's somewhere|
else to watch the game.
Check the movie listings."
Woman A: "That's what I heard. It's because the Chargers didn't sell all of their tickets."
Woman B: "You'd think that Keith Mills would have said something on Channel 11 last night."
(At this point, I should note that these women were having this conversation within two feet of a computer that would presumably grant them access to all of the information needed to assuage their fears).
Woman B: (In all seriousness) "Well you could always go to the game if there are that many tickets left. It's got to be easier than getting a ticket to a home game."
Woman A: (Also in all seriousness) "Yeah but the airfare would be a fortune."
|"It's not your fault ladies."|
|"Oh yeah, well YOU think a |
'tight end' is something you
get from using a Thighmaster."
|"I'd stop talking."|
P.S. - part of my research on this subject included an article on the Chargers' blackout which referenced the fact that they play in "Snapdragon Stadium." This prompted a reader to post the following: "Snapdragon Stadium? They named a stadium after my ex-wife's vagina?" I love the internet.
