Enough is Enough

To know what it’s like to love somebody the way I love you
To know how it feels to kill yourself with bad habits
To know what you want, know you’ll never truly have it
New York City, please go easy on me tonight

Dear hearts, I’m about to lose it and a chipped nail or broken heel is not to blame. image

Ironic I had to be in NYC to watch the fifth Jets loss. I was so excited to watch at a little local Jets spot in the upper east side, and by the end of the first quarter, I felt it was best for my bank account and health to walk away.

As I’m jetting back to LA, sitting here in my seat seething, thoughts of a bad relationship pass through my mind.

When is this going to end? Why should I stay devoted? Is it time to walk away?

I’m tired of semi-teasing JETS stands for Just End The Season.

I’m tired of the blue shadow the Giants cast over the city. You know you’re a Jets fan when you walk by Steve Tisch, laid out on his Manhattan Beach deck, and you just walk away. 

I’m tired of second best. I want the best. We deserve better, not clinging to a team that Jason Taylor once nicely called the garbage collection team of the NFL. 

Right now darlings, we know that’s true.

When can we look forward to a coach who is capable? When can we look forward again to a team as glorious as the 2010 one-game-away-from-the-SB, instead of what we now have to watch?

I dear heart cannot blame you if you do not watch any more. Time is precious, why waste it on a team so incapable, lying in the middle of the field would be more effective, than what the defense didn’t do to stop David Johnson last night.

Let’s be honest, that would be a incredible circus defense play, no questions asked.

See, I can still tease when I’m down.

I’ve defended Coach Bowles. I thought he was The Guy. The front office made pre-season moves intended to put this team ahead, acquiring Brandon Marshall and Matt Forte, but we recognize those names, since were previously sexy. They’re no longer stunners, even with how Marshall has played. Now, he’s the entire receiver’s corps, since Decker is about to have hip & shoulder replacement surgery. Let that sink in for a moment… 

I must take a stand and state, Geno Smith is NOT the answer. Wearing his perma-scowl and i’m-better-than-everybody panache, that’s not a face of the future. Petty or Hackenberg, get those gents reps. Coach Bowles, you’re already at the end of the line, just do it. You have nothing to lose at this point. If being let go is highly likely, make mistakes and make them big. Put your -ahem- on the table and make it happen.

I’m not someone who gives in or up easily. But dear Jets, you are pushing me to the limit of embracing outer darkness, otherwise known as the Raiders. That Carr has an arm, and they are great to watch this season. Plus I don’t have to travel so far to visit.

Even in these depths of despair, my dream continues to flicker, of proudly dawning my fur coat while sitting in my seats, six rows above the field at Metlife. A girl can dream… 

Cheers,

Leaving Your Mark

I always adore a wonderful trip of schmoozing and scotching, which is what happens when this Westie steps her red sole in the 312.

I agree with Sinatra. It’s My Kind of TownKisses cdineslk7

I tucked in my napkin, overtly licked my lips and inched forward… intending to put that huge, juicy piece in my mouth…

Mmm Gibson’s – perfection as always
Oh, football right…

First things first, don’t allow The League  to seduce you into believing they watch their football games at Gibson’s. It’s on par with a sports bar as Jim Harbaugh not yelling. In other words, it’s not reality.


Speaking of semi-reality lets have some fun. Doesn’t it feel like the beginning of the season is like a first date?

At first your team date looks good in their profile pic. Depending on the depth revealed, you decide you want to view them in reality. 


Now you likely get really excited, put on your lucky pants, and do your little dance


Six NFL teams will be flirting with winning or disaster this season. If you didn’t know, newly minted 49’ers Head Coach, Chip Kelly has been rated the smoke show of the group. With these new gents in place, you don’t know if you’re getting Sandra, Tiffany or Brittany Lynn.

As Harsby said at Big 10 Media days “You should set your dreams so big that everybody laughs at ’em,” he said. “If nobody’s laughing at ’em, you didn’t set your goals high enough.”

With those massive dreams one wants, sometimes that individual has to lose or get rejected to find that success, on or off the field.

In other words, just win gents so you can be noticed, leading to a season of Sexy Rexy, or “my friend just got a bee-sting-it’s-bad-gotta-go byeee”.

Dear heart try this, instead of only focusing on the team the next game you attend. Strike up a convo with the lady or gent sitting next to you. You may be surprised what you learn. Both of you are there for the same purpose, so why not discover why they enjoy The Game so much. 

I promise you, like a great first date, time will quickly pass by. You may wish the next sixty minutes would never end. You may leave with a new friend, or at least a feeling that person gave you a new perspective.

Side note, that first pretty little picture above inspired me years ago to start this little thing. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Cheers,

High Expectations

Like my scotch habits and heels, my expectations are also high in regards to the season soon upon us. We know it, sense it and smell it… It’s almost here dear hearts.

Allow me to lick my lips while saying, mmmmm

NFL training camps begin next week and CFB conference days are wrapping up. Let me share what’s recently caught my eye…

Expansion – generally means an increase in size. What if the name you currently have doesn’t match your current size? Is it still considered an expansion?

I’m all about the Big XII being twelve again. The name is downright misleading. Since this is a voting year, I’d vote for two in blue – BYU & Memphis. First you get the Blessing and second you get the SEC. 

Speaking of the SEC, they’re Just the good old boys. Never meanin’ no harm.

I know I wasn’t the only one thinking this as I watched SEC media days…

Let’s evaluate the new boys in town – Muschamp,  Odom and Smart.

Looking quite fitting in their sport coats and bama bangs. Enough evaluating, moving along. 

My borderline (non)affair for Coach Bielema rages on, after this gem parting from his lips:

“At Arkansas we’re not built very sexy, we’re just kind of a work in progress. We need a lot of time in the bathroom to get ready and come out and look great.”  

Oh Coach…

The SEC – charming, country, and sometimes too much.

Speaking of too much, oh lovely another TV channel. The ACC network is here. My eyes did a double take with no adult beverage in my little system. Twenty years is quite something to see, and dear hearts it’s happening until 2036.

Take that in for a moment.

We also know if the Irish choose to commit, which makes me giggle since they are so Independent, they have a nice pair of golden handcuffs tied to… The ACC Network.

I’ll end with the perfect words for the upcoming season:

I need you, I need you, I need you right now
Yeah, I need you right now
So don’t let me, don’t let me, don’t let me down
I think I’m losing my mind now
It’s in my head, darling I hope
That you’ll be here, when I need you the most
So don’t let me, don’t let me, don’t let me down

Cheers,

Leaders of the PAC?

One thing that will make this honey rise n shine faster than 2 for 1 Loubi sale… PAC 12 MEDIA DAYS – oh the ecstasy. 

I’ve been attempting to preoccupy my brain while July, otherwise known as the month of my birth, and the worst non-football month of the year, passes us by … Bye!

I’ve been meticulously pouring over the annual Phil Steele of knowledge like it’s the GMAT, GRE, LSAT, and MCAT all bundled into one. And my little life depends on knowing who plays MLB for Tennessee.

So these are the days where I can hear the season predictions from the Oracles of West Coast football, like it’s the Berkshire Hathaway annual meeting.

Traditionally this little pre-season activity makes me made me happier than a Macallen 30 neat.

It was all for nothing… Kind of like that last-second play, USC forgot to play against ASU last season. *Hint start at the 13:55 mark.

Like that dear hearts…

While Rich-Rod is never a bore, and I adore Coach Leech’s dating philosophies, piñatas were being hit, punched and smashed, and Sarky made a little snarky, ‘duck you’ Oregon comment, I left with more uhhhhhs than ahhhhs.

Maybe it’s all that D, I’ve been getting. Yes that vitamin D that we Angelinos basque in for 11 months out of the year. Maybe it’s gotten into my silly little head. This felt like a disappointment.

Similar to that tinder date who you thought by their pic looks like a smoke show, only in real life is a solid 5.56789999, or a 6?

Just like that dear hearts.

Bring on the makers mark, let’s not waste the fine malts. I need to put on a pot of bourbon after this.

I certainly hope this is not the PAC’s expectation for the season. Let’s step it up a notch, ok Gents?
