The Lowdown Nitty Gritty

  • It's cool to wear a jersey, but you should only put one arm in it. Because sashes bring your true badass out.

  • Bowling is fun. Especially when the pitchers are only $6.

  • We lost 2 of 3 in our first volleyball match. Then 2/3 of our team left. Ryan and I finished our beer and watched the Sunday night football game for awhile before gathering our things at about 8:30. On our way out, the league manager says, "We play you guys tonight, right?" Dumbfounded looks exchanged by Ryan and I. Apparently Team Josh Brettingen minus Josh Brettingen had a double-header. We swept them 3-0. Who needs 6? 2's a much more manageable number. :)

  • Hyser and I went to KFAN after bowling last Monday. I can't keep quiet while watching football. Especially when it's MNF. And Green Bay's playing. And I'm up by 5 points with Longwell on the field and my opponent has Ahman Green. I will never cheer for the Packers, but if they're going to score, I figure it might as well be Longwell. The other patrons were entertained but confused with my contradictory cheers and jeers.

  • I wore anti-reflective tape under my eyes for kickball. I'm now addicted to it and might start wearing it every day to work. Bring it on.

  • The Twins lost on Friday but we had a great time. After the game, we met up with Jason Berg at The Corner Bar and headed over to Sgt. Prestons where I ran into Chris Murray. It was nice to catch up with him! Kevin Farmer and his friends arrived via bachelor party bus and somehow after a pitcher, we ended up on the bus and then, Shieks. Luckily, it's only a 15 minute walk home. Sadly, we have this all timed out perfectly of when to order the pizza so it gets there a few minutes after we do.

  • Saturday I made hot wings and we headed up to Oak Grove for Mike's party. Everything was great. Beer brats, awesome food to share, a keg we almost fried and a HUGE bonfire. I'm not kidding, if I didn't know better, I would have thought they were throwing entire trees in the pit. Items of interest: We did kegstands. Because it's important to play college drinking games at 27. Mike found a spider that couldn't possibly be native to MN. Think black widow with bright yellow markings on the back and fangs. Fangs. <shudder>. We stayed up until 4:30am and slept on the futon. Woke up to breakfast and bloody mary's. Rock on. Thanks for having us Mike & Julie - your house is gorgeous and we had a great time. Also, Julie, your friends are awesome :)

  • Sunday: Happy Birthday to Mom!. We're SO sorry we ran late but are just as glad we got to share dinner with you, Grandpa, Shari and Rob. Food was delicious! I'm glad you like your cell phone - looking forward to seeing you on Wednesday to program it, etc.!

  • We had to leave dinner for Fletcher's only to find the other team didn't show. Bummed out but at least we were able to pick up a few players and play 4 on 4 for awhile. We got sucked into the Sunday night game and talked to Scott for hours. He's hilarious.

  • Bowling = Jägermeister = Vikings. Hyser, Ryan, Danielle and I went to KFAN for the game. Sadly, the Vikes fell to the Eagles but the memories made it somewhat worth it. Just after kick-off, enter man with mullet wearing sweater vest. He steps up to the bar looks around, turns towards us, points his finger at us defiantly and demanded, "Who took my chair?!?" We didn't know. This questioning went around to everyone within a 5 foot radius. For some reason he zeroed in on us. He said things like, I know you took my chair; if I find out which one of you [unprintable] took my chair, I'm going to kill you; you're all dead. At first this was funny, but the comedy wore off quickly. I went to find a manager and had started to explain when the waitress comes running over whispering something urgently. They take off with me in tow. He's now yelling at another group, but still accusing us of taking his chair. Manager and mullet-vest have conversation that goes something like:
    Mgr: Is there a problem?
    MV: Yeah, those [unprintables] took my chair.
    Mgr: This doesn't have to be a problem...
    MV interrupts: You're making it my [unprintable] problem.
    Mgr: No, I'm just trying to...
    MV: I'm a black belt samaurai and I can kick all of your asses. You're dead.
    Mgr: OK, that's enough.
    <Exits to phone police. Returns with bouncer.>
    As MV exits, he points at us and tells us that he's going to be waiting for us in the parking lot. The scary thing is that he's exactly the kind of nutjob that would be. It's a little ironic he threatened an Asian with kung fu. Apparently, he doesn't know my brother, Jackie Chan. Much sweater vest mullet mimicking ensued. As a side note, the food at KFAN rocks. Also, their TV is bigger than yours. Room for improvement? Radio boxes at each table. Come on, it's KFAN, we have to listen to Madden???

    Tonight, Hyser and I will make noodles and watch Sex in the City. We're addicted.

    Tomorrow, I'm going to spend some quality time with Mom, introducing her to her new cell phone.

    Kickball Thursday (more anti-reflective tape) and Friday's an Old Chicago happy hour followed possibly by Tent Party.

    Also, I was the top scorer in 1 fantasy football league (sorry for the upset DW) and beat Kevin Farmer even after all his trash talking. Priest Holmes who??? :) Next time, we'll have to wager something.

    Peace out.
