I don’t think it’s a sign of disrespect or whatever to pop your shirt off during sports, especially if you’re awesome. Apparently, since 2004, stripping after making a goal earns you a big fat yellow card. It’s a thoughtful gesture, really. Like, I just threw down and here is my stupendously athletic body that afforded me the ability to throw down so hard. You’re welcome!
Meh, I’m no expert though. The truth about me is that I’m not a sporty lesbian – I follow Gamecock athletics and even then, I only care about beating Clemson. So, it’s no wonder that I hadn’t heard of a lot of the strange sports traditions from round 1. I did find it interesting that Steelers fans prize some kind of cock rag called a Terrible Towel. Upon hearing this, two things instantly came to mind: 1) Towelie from South Park is the opposite of a terrible towel. 2) and this one is more haunting; I once had a roommate in college, that used the same towel for a entire semester, without washing it.
No one moved a single muscle during Round 3: Say When: Super Heroes. Maybe we had just reached that calm point, where everyone has settled in to the quiz, OR, maybe everyone was just trying to conceal their raging Batman boners. Hmmm…Anyway, y’all seemed to be doing it right with this round. I got three clues into question 4: Marvel, Anti-communist, Alcoholic, and you knew the answer was Iron man. That’s cool, but there was an air of judgment. I mean, Iron Man has seen some shit that can’t just be un-seen, and the dude’s heart looks like an LED bicycle light. Give the guy a break.
Now I fully understand why people say things were better when Ronald Regan was President. During a year of his presidency, in 1983, the world saw Michael Jackson’s first moonwalk, the beginnings of that beautiful, beautiful machine called Nintendo, and the release of Return of the Jedi. Then George H.W. Bush happened, forcing Larry Bird into retirement.
Here is all I have to say about the visual round. At one time, John Travolta reigned supreme and could do no wrong in a pair of tight, black undies. Not so much anymore.
I would like to suggest a motion to have all Gotye and FUN. questions stricken from the quiz, for all of eternity. No more, I say!
If you enjoyed a free beer last night, congratulations! More specifically, if you enjoyed the actual free beer ticket, thank Island Amy! She’s been pilfering my pictures off of Facebook and making some sweet drink tickets that you definitely can’t use anywhere but Playground.
