Flashback Friday: No Snow, but Cold Again

It's amazing how quickly your body can get used to warm weather. Despite months of freezing temperatures and a long spell of sub-zeros, two days in the 60s has meekened my mettle.

Instead of hammering away on the pavement, I have elected to clawhammer away on my banjo. Instead of running shoes on my feet, I have been running plays on Tecmo Bowl Kickoff.

My mileage might be suffering, but at least Cleveland is having a winning season. So far.

Back Talk
Wherein, you know, I talk back.

Ms. V. saw someone imitating me last weekend: "We did the Davis 5K, and when we were parking, this guy was doing a Viper Snot Rocket."

Answer: I hope, for your sake, you don't mean this Viper Snot Rocket.

TFH approves of my poetic run: "That sounds considerably more pleasant than getting trapped in a T.S. Eliot poem. Better Leaves of Grass than Wasteland."

Answer: Agreed. Been there, done that.

Happy Hour cannot arrive soon enough! Defile yourselves this weekend, teammates. You deserve it. Run well and drink well.

"Defile yourselves this weekend, teammates. You deserve it."

Yes, and defile someone else tomorrow night, otherwise it's not Valentines day.

Wow. You guys just hate files, don't you?

WOW I loved Tecmo bowl! Good luck with winning it all.

Singles Awareness. I will be sufficiently schwasted solo, thankyouverymuch.

How you can be anyone other than Oakland in Tecmo Bowl astounds me, even if you are a Cleveland fan. Bo and Allen all day long.

B. Kramer said...

This is the new Tecmo Bowl, without NFL licensing and well past Bo's career (sniff).

Sun Runner said...

OK, WTF is Temco Bowl? Someone has problems and it's not me...

Oh yeah, and, FUCK Valentine's Day! (My own personal opinion which may or may not reflect that of this blog's owner/Fascist dictator/megalomaniac and its readers.)

B. Kramer said...

That's Tecmo Bowl. And if you don't know, you wouldn't understand.

Thank you for sullying my site with your vulgarity.

Son of Man! Hope you and your banjo have a weekend full of revelry.

Sun Runner said...

Oh my god, I just watched that whole video. You mean you actually play that and somehow manage to not have a coronary? This isn't 1987 or whatever. There must be a better way...a way the makers of that game have somehow missed.

As for your spurious accusations of sullying, bitch please. This is the place for drinkers with a running problem, is it not?

For the record I am not posting this comment from my iPhone.

I am, however, wearing my new running jacket while sitting at my computer desk. Because I'm that fucking lame.

(I am drinking beer, though. Does that boost my street cred?)

Ms. V. said...

Um. Viper. I swear it could have been you because I looked at him and said, "Did you just do a snot rocket?", to which he replied..."yeah".

Who else calls them that? Happy VD Day!

C said...

VD day? Does Ms. V know something about you that the rest of us don't?
