Sports Fanatic me: *sings* It’s the most wonderful time of the year…
Normal me: Hey, Christmas was about a month and a half ago. You’re kinda late.
Sports Fanatic me: I know that, jeez. I’m talking about the Super Bowl!
Normal me: Oh yeah, that’s right. You would. What’s James doing this year?
Sports Fanatic me: Well, James and his flight are having a get together in the Guard Room over at the Detachment. He’s providing the snacks and whatnot, so hopefully there’s a fair turnout. Last time the Steelers played in the Super Bowl, he and his roommate went to one of the TV lounges in the basement of the dorm he was in. Big screen TV all to themselves. It was pretty epic.
Normal me: Yeah? Sounds cool. And last year?
Sports Fanatic me: Last year he and his roommate stayed in their room. James cheered on the Saints and his roommate rooted for the Colts. Thankfully, the Saints pulled it out. They’re his second favorite team actually.
Normal me: So, why’s he not watching it with his roomie again?
Sports Fanatic me: He withdrew, unfortunately. He doesn’t have anyone else to watch it with. His Warrior Rep actually suggested the flight watch it together as a flight event, though, so at least he’s got people to watch with this time.
Normal me: Cool, cool…but please tell me he won’t be dressed like he was for Super Bowl XL…
Sports Fanatic me: What, with the pin-on ribbons, jersey, hat, Terrible Towel cape, beads, and other accoutrements? Nah. He doesn’t have the ribbons this year.
Normal me: Well…thank God for that…
Sports Fanatic me: He does have a tie and scarf, though…
Normal me: *facepalms*
Sports Fanatic me: *runs off twirling a Terrible Towel* HERE WE GO, STEELERS, HERE WE GO!
And for today’s Trek picture of the day…
