Saddest day of the year: December 26th. I miss Christmas. What can I say? I'm a holiday person and I feel really sad when it ends. But it was a wonderful, wonderful Christmas that I wish I could rewind! I hope everyone had the best Christmas imaginable!
I have so much to share--including a truly mortifying me moment on Christmas day. *shakes head*
But, for now, I just wanted to check in and, well, basically gripe. I'm sorry in advance.
Gripe #1: Romo injured.
I know I run hot and cold when it comes to Romo, but an injury to his hand could have been avoided. Cowboys lost what turned out to be a meaningless Christmas Eve game. Not great, but not major...so long as his hand is okay, which they *think* it will be. The big showdown will be this weekend in New York. Winner takes all. Puke.
Gripe #2: Idiot people who claim to know basketball, but don't.
Mavs. Sigh. Lost. Bad. Two nights in a row. Very bad. Here's the thing: they are not the same team as last year's championship group; they have new players now. Everyone who knows basketball understands it will take time for the team to mesh, and without any real preseason, it's going to take a while.
Still, immediately following the Christmas loss to Miami, you see a headline calling the Mavericks' championship a fluke, a claim which, according to the "sports writer," was substantiated by the way the Heat defeated the Mavs in the first game of the season.
Honestly, how asinine do you have to be? The Miami Heat have the same team they had last year, so of course they're going to be good; the Mavs are, essentially, a new team and will need time to come together as a group.
As for calling their championship a fluke: Go on, say it if it makes you feel better. Mavs' fans will just sit back and smile...with our Championship team, trophy, and banner.
Gripe #3: Saying Merry Christmas does not mean "I Love You."
...nor does it mean any of the following:
* I want to have your baby
* Will you marry me?
* I have a crush on you
* You are my soul mate.
Merry Christmas simply means...wait for it...MERRY CHRISTMAS, Happy Holidays, Joy to the world, and all those good holly jolly, peace on earth things.
Oh, and to the men (believe me, there are a few) who think if they say Merry Christmas the women will somehow take it to mean you love them, want to marry them, and want them to have your baby...please, get over yourselves.
Okay, done griping now.
Sorry for that.
Feel much better though.
