It has been a cazy (as Josiah would say) past two weeks and it will probably require a couple of posts to thoroughly and sufficiently honor and scrutinize them; suffice it to say, it was a very merry Christmas, and is currently poised to be a very happy new year. It’s also important, nay, crucial to note that at midnight tonight I will not be switching my allegiance so much as I will be officially, publicly announcing my newfound loyalty to the Brewers. After much cajoling, heckling, verbal abuse, threats, and assaults upon my personal integrity, I have recognized the superior wisdom of cleaving to the Brew Crew for baseball glory; having thus set my covenantal love upon them, I will be steadfast in my faithfulness to their cause and will pray imprecatory prayers against all who would broker opposition to their might.
…or something like that…
I have reliable information from worthy sources that I will not be disowned for this turn of events, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed nevertheless.
Goodbye, Cubs. Rest in peace. (Or pieces, rather!)*
Phil and Deanna’s party awaits us, and if I have anything to say about it, much sparkling grape juice will be consumed as 2011 springs upon us. Farewell, 2010- you’ve been good to us all. And you’ll be missed more than my misplaced Cubs loyalty.**
*It’s comments like that that will get me disowned!
**I’m a dead man.
