Today’s funny comics. Subtitle. Two ways I appreciate the boyfriend.

Thank goodness I took the band Journey’s adage to heart and learned eventually that “lovin’ a music man ain’t always what it’s supposed to be.”  If I hadn’t left drummers behind, not only would I be marking time through endless drum solos, but also I wouldn’t have met Matt.

I grew up in a family that watched spectator sports.  Baseball and football mostly, but also college basketball.  So I am quite familiar with this interview.  And thank goodness the boyfriend has absolutely no interest in spectator sports so I don’t have to listen to this interview any longer.

  1. Very funny! I also feel lucky that I am not subjected to spectator sports unless I choose them and then he wants to leave the room.

  2. Sorry for all of the extra comments to moderate. The program would just post them without the chance to put my name in.

    Sorry for the lame comments. I am calling it spring break brain.

  3. If no sport ever interviewed a player again, I’d be fine with it. You probably didn’t follow the story of Marshawn Lynch (of the Seattle Seahawks), who was fined by the league repeatedly for not showing up for interviews so then he started showing up and just repeating the same sentence over and over again (famously, in one interview, "I’m just here so I won’t get fined."). I just don’t see the point in forcing players to give interviews. They virtually never have anything of note to say. Leave the analysis of the game to the analysts, who have the benefit of viewing it from the outside and, presumably, with some objectivity.

  4. The Marshawn Lynch thing was big enough that I did hear about it. (On NPR’s Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me, I think.) And I think you are right, there’s no point in asking the athletes to talk about their performance. Maybe it’s just that we want to be closer to them. I feel the same way about actors when they promote their movies. Whatever they are saying is much more interesting if they are talking about things other than their acting process.
