I hate August

I haven't made any posts in forever because I have been fighting a losing battle against my arch-nemesis, the sun.

Fie upon thee DayStar, thou cruel murdersome wretch!

I just went from Houston (average temperature: 80,000 degrees) to Tuscaloosa (average temperature: hot-as-fuck degrees). Today I had to walk across the quad at UA in 4 minutes because some asshat professor changed where the class would be held and I think I now weigh about 120 lbs. I'm staring to think Al Gore is on to something.

Anyway, August is the worst month of the year. No real football, the Astros suck, I have to go back to class, TV is nothing but bullshit re-runs and it's hot as fuck. Oh well, the Tide kick off this Friday, so I guess there's that.

Internet masochism

I am in the unenviable position of being a Houston sports fan and someone still optimistic about the PlayStation 3. Everyday I get on the ESPN message boards for the Texans and defend the Mario Williams pick against vitriolic trolls, defend the Sahne Battier trade against idiots who don't know the NBA from XBox, defend the Astros against people who haven't been paying attention the last two years and read Joystiq and have to launch a counter offensive against the biased bloggers AND retarded Nintendo fanboys.

Why do I do this? Why do I push myself through this guantlet of uninformed posts with a fanatically irrational zeal?

Because I hate myself, it's the only possible explanation.

Straight from the Dane Cook Pantheon

Everything I say is important and must be available to billions of people.

It is in this spirit that I start this blog, hold on bitches - I will be telling you everything I think about video games, football, and anything that crosses my mind and you will be better off for it.
