Today was the Monday Random Question, where we asked you a random question (per caller) and then shared the news story with you that inspired the question. That being said, it's kinda difficult to recreate it all here on the blog, so instead, I'll prattle on about my Saturday.
It should be noted that I'd had my tattoo scheduled for Saturday at 4pm for a few months now. As a Ravens fan, I was stoked for the game against the Broncos... not because it was the Broncos, but because it's the f**king playoffs. Anyway, no one gave the Ravens a chance, but Miles and I were very, very confident. Sometimes you just know you're team... and we happened to be right. Anyway, this was as epic a game as a game could be. Add the fact that it was a playoff game and this was one for the ages... and that's why it was SO annoying to have to leave to go get a tattoo. You will rarely hear me bitch about the timing of a tattoo, but this was the day. I had to leave in third quarter to get it done. The whole time I was there, I was silently sweating about the game. Eventually, someone turned the game on over the studio's speakers. This was good AND bad because one of the keys to a successful tattoo is to sit still. Based on the way the game went down, I did anything but sit still. Nevertheless, my artist, Brian Kachel at www.cicadatattoo.com , was gracious enough to stop the tattoo and allow me to cheer and celebrate (including the Ray Lewis dance) in his studio. so kudos to Cicada Tattoo for a fine work of art and for letting me be me.
Still though, it sucks to not actually see the game. So, onward to Boston for the New England Patriots. There are no words for my level of hatred for the Pats. There really aren't. Anyway, everyone keeps asking me how I feel about the upcoming game with New England and honestly, I don't play the game, so it doesn't matter, but I'm hoping that the Ravens have my mindset about it; your goal is to win the Super Bowl. Anything between you and your goal needs to be eliminated or bypassed... whichever makes more sense at the moment you face it. It's not about New England; they're this thing that stands between you and what you want to do. How would you feel about that? I would be pissed. I hope the Ravens are too. We'll see.
Kudos to the Seahawks for a brilliant season. A lot of people are pissed at the 'hawks D for allowing the Falcons to get that game- winning field goal, but I'd like to say that they did exactly what their coordinator asked them to do. Think about that. at any rate, I think the 'Hawks will be the team to beat in '13.
If you're not a football fan, I'm sure this blog was a tedious read... but I don't care. Not even a little. Love the NFL, baby.
