Still Alive; Slightly Annoyed
The media guide is coming along. Opponents section and all-time records/results to be fait compleat tonight.
Coaching staff, player bios, and year-by-year results done this weekend.
But two things are really annoying me today. And they're both from Indiana.
1: the Indianapolis Colts. And if you watched the game last night, you'll know why. Dammit. I hate them almost on par with the Yankees.
2: John (Cougar) Mellencamp. You know, a friend way back in 2001 or so bought JCM's greatest hits CD. I mocked him, as I am wont to do.
But then he put it on. And you forget how many really good songs that Mellencamp has put out. No, it would not be my artist of choice, but I didn't shut the CD off.
But this "Our Country" song...the one that they play on the Chevy commercials every 1.8 seconds during sporting events for the last month or so?
No. Stop. Just stop.
And it's not that I dislike Chevy, trust me...I try to make that point as clear as I can for my loyal readers under the employ of the Heartbeat of America...but can you send someone an email in Detroit and tell them to stop? I mean shampooing stop.
I read on Deadspin that someone tried to watch a college football game, and made the "Our Country" commercial into a drinking game - you know, drink everytime the commercial comes on... Well, the individual finished all the beer, all the bourbon, and was onto the Windex and Witch Hazel by the end of the Notre Dame-UNC contest.
So please, just stop. Little Pink Houses. For you and me.
