SO HOW'S THE WEATHER?
All week long conversations have revolved around people wearing pastel whacking their balls. With serious mien, pundits have voiced opinions, discussed angles and velocity, and uttered grave pronouncements about grass, sand, the balls, and even the silly little sticks used to hit those balls.
Gentlemen, please shut up about the balls.
Yours or anyone else’s.
As a comparative ranking, here are the top ten most dismal televised spectacles:
10. Congressional hearings.
9. State of the Union speech.
7. FOX news.
6. Anything involving flying saucers.
5. Real Housewives.
3. Basket ball.
And, at number one:
All time worst. Hands down.
These ten "entertainments" have the intellectual and emotional appeal of watching paint drying.
Like viewing overmuch pornography, they rot the brain and lead to domestic estrangement.
Spending any time among people discussing these things is like being at a swingers convention with ugly old farts. Think about it, and you'll know why.
Please stop talking about your balls.
