“Wow… if only a face could talk” – sportscaster John Madden, during the Packer-Patriots Super Bowl XXXI

“FOUND. DIRTY WHITE DOG.
Looks like a rat. It’s been out awhile. No collar. Better be a reward.
Call…” – classified ad in a Baltimore newspaper
Now why in the world would I put these to entries together? The answer is quite simple. John Madden is a dirty rat.
The man does not know a single thing about football. Maybe he did at one point but now he’s up there with Tim McCarver and Joe Buck as the worst sports announcers in the history of me watching sports. They disgust me to the point that if a Boston/New England team is playing I will mute the TV and put on the radio.
The super bowl this year was pretty epic. I was rooting for the Cardinals because I’m the sort of underdog fan who would want to see them win. Even with their horrible defense, they kept the game close and my attention was 100% on the game. The commercials were a set up from last year. Nothing as epic as the Budweiser frogs or the Blockbuster hamsters but I laughed and was intrigued by most of the upcoming movies.
Ok back to dogs. My girlfriend is a fan of dogs. Small dogs, handbag dogs, sneak into the workplace and hide in a filing cabinet (*cough* Angela from The Office *cough cough*) sort of dogs. These dogs are useless to me. I apologize ahead of time to anyone who may be hurt by this but I want a dog that will play with me. The sort of dog that can jump on me and dance with its hind legs. I’m thinking a black or yellow lab. I had a chocolate lab and she was awesome so I wouldn’t mind another chocolate one but why should it be all the same?
So anyway, we decided that I’m getting a (what I like to call) “real” dog and she will get a little, nothing, eternal puppy thing. And, although I hope it never happens, if she loses the thing, I will be keeping my eye out for an ad like the one above.
Edit: Um, my girlfriend wouldn’t abuse a dog in the manner addressed above. She is also ok with a big dog. Basically it’s a girl thing to have a little dog. I just hope it wouldn’t be a mop.
