So yesterday I was saying to everyone who would listen that I had just a terrible feeling about the Patriots game going into last night. "If you want to spare yourself more heartache after the Red Sox loss, I suggest not watching this game." And I even tossed out a score prediction - 38-7. AND LOOK HOW CLOSE I WAS! Now I know what you're thinking..."Smarty, didn't you pick Denver to win by that score?" To you I say this: stop being a sore loser. "But--" No, no, no. You're just mad that I was right. Admit it!
Thinking back to the past few days, I realized I had a great feeling going into Game 7 of the ALCS and a terrible feeling going into last night's Patriots game. Just like many many women have shown, sports seem to care not for my feelings either. So let me throw some reverse-jinx shit out there - I have a terrible feeling about the Celtics repeating as champions, a discouraging feeling about the Patriots winning the Super Bowl, and an awful feeling about the URI Men's Basketball team winning the A-10 title this year. Woooot.
Now here's a story that hasn't been mentioned on here yet, but I feel in the spirit of schadenfreude, we should rip on the problems of others...especially if they play for the Yankees. Joba Chamberlain got nailed for a DUI over the weekend, and apparently he was well over the legal limit. I referred to him as being "wasted" in an email to the Hysterics, but in reality I have no idea how drunk someone would be with a 0.13 BAC. I was trying to think of the drunkest I have ever been and what my BAC was at that stage. I think it had to be my senior year of college. My house decided to have an "Around The World" party, where each room of the house hosts a different shot, and a guest's goal is to make it "Around The World" by the end of the night. Needless to say I had circumnavigated several times before 7:00 PM. I honestly have almost no memory of the night, but the one moment that stands out is maybe the dumbest mistake I ever made in my college years. I was sitting on the couch in my room with this beautiful girl, who turned to me and said "Smarty, I really wanna hook up with someone tonight...do you have any suggestions?" She was practically laying across my lap at this point. So I turned to her, looked deep into her eyes, and said, "Hmm..how about that guy over there?"
So here's a question for the masses. What is the drunkest you have ever been? And have you ever made a mistake as colossal as mine that fateful autumn night?
