The two of them, bartender and customer, were going over their college football pics. It killed me, I actually read Sports Illustrated this past week. In fact, two Sports Illustrateds were purchased on my behalf. One was the story of Marc Bouncotti (sp?), which provided the scariest scenario possible of football injuries (thumbs down from me), the other issue -that I didn’t read- was the top 20 college football teams. If only I had read the hard facts instead of the human interest story, I could have provided some great insights to these men at the bar. I guess there’s always next time. But even having these two SI issues on my desk has started quite a few conversations.
- The “we” implies I am a fan of someone other than the Giants? or Steelers? (ha!)
- That I know who the Ravens are playing
- The amount of conviction in my tone when saying this was way out of proportion.
