Today is going to be a grab bag of grab bags. Don’t understand? It’s going to be a post of random thoughts and short stories but it won’t follow the normal Grab Bag Day format. It will be more completely random and may or may not have anything to do with sports.
First, I have my first two submissions for the Creep Off. I’ll let the teller of the tale tell his tale.
“A group of us were at this bar on a Thursday night. Pretty empty. A group of 6 drunk 40ish ladies were the only ones dancing (more like trying to stay up right) on the floor so the DJ kept making creepy lines to them during the song such as Pour Some Sugar on Me turns to Let me pour some sugar on you (pointing to a girl in the group) then he kept dragging them against their will to the stage to select a song. Long story short, the DJ goes to get a beer the whole while he is watching the group and doing the old Shooter McGavin gun point-shoot. As he reaches the dance floor again, he trips over the mats, gets up and acts like nothing happens continuing the point and stare. Next time he needs a beer he does the exact same thing including tripping over the mat again.”
I have just one question surrounding this situation. How desperate must have these women been to still be on the dance floor after the guy went to get his first beer? How long were they out on the floor if the DJ needed two beers? I think the ladies are just as creepy.
Anyway, the submitter couldn’t think of a worthy title so here is what I came up with…
The “I’m a crappy DJ at a crappy bar playing crappy songs and I think the crappy ladies dancing aren’t that crappy so if I keep dancing and playing songs for them maybe they’ll like me” creep.
I also received this one (and who hasn’t done this one back in their day [or last weekend])…
The “I walk through a crowded dance floor making sure my hand rubs a girls butt so I can get a cheap feel and she will have no idea who did it” creep.
OK loyal readers, it’s up to you to pick which one is creepier.
Now for some another random thoughts:
> I was at the library yesterday, yeah, the place with books. (Strange, I know. I needed a few books for my flight to Orlando and something to read laying around the pool. I got some books that should be entertaining but I’ll tell you about them if it is worth it after I read them.) I saw a man checking out no less than 15 movies. How can you possibly have time to watch 15 movies in a week? How can you possibly find 15 movies you want to watch at the library?
> Watched a pretty funny and off the wall movie yesterday called The Brothers Solomon. Will Arnett and Will Forte are in it. Very funny.
> For the second day in a row, I’m wearing a shirt I bought at the thrift store. Today is the one Seal turned down on Saturday.
> So for this stupid Title Town thing on ESPN (second worst idea ever behind Who’s Now?), Ohio State had what, 200 people out when ESPN was there? ESPN was in Massillon yesterday and they had more than 7,000 pack their stadium and tailgate before the taping. Not sure what it means but just saying.
> Can anyone in the Akron area stand reading the Akron Beacon Journal anymore? Pat McManamon is the worst columnist in the history of newspaper. Just read his Sunday column and you’ll want to forget how to read.
> Tribe won again last night. That’s eight of their last nine and it brought them out of last place. They are slowing moving up. I’m telling you, they’ll finish a few games above .500.
> To Frank, no, I had no idea that other driver Danica yelled at was a girl. Shows how much I care.
> Browns training camp starts tomorrow. We’ll have a nice talk about it in the morning. But today seems like a good day to get there first HERE WE GO BROWNIES, HERE WE GO!!!
