The only time I seem to have to post personally is in the middle of the night. That works. Someone is up somewhere right?
I am quickly following up my previous post which was a bit down even though I did manage to find a chuckle at the end. I usually do.
This hat (top) however lit me up. A gorgeous striped hat from the runway of Tokyo Fashion Week, created by Tokuko Meada. How I would love to have this hat but I don’t suppose there’s much chance, eh? Never mind. I will simply imagine it. That’s almost as good.
Wish we could see those fabulous bows on the back better. The furry balls don’t look like real fur. They better not be.
Wow, look at these too from the same designer.
Now this is fun. The hats. What are they made from do you think? Raffia trim is heaven.
I find the NFL to be really, really bad this year. Not that I have been watching it much. I can’t stand it for more than 5 or 10 minutes at a time. To be honest I have hardly watched it since Marshawn Lynch went away to have surgery and never really came back.
Notwithstanding that there really haven’t been any match ups that capture the imagination. And the refereeing is still mind boggingly bad. The only consistency they show are how bad they are and how wrong they can get it. I don’t blame them really. Who’s training these guys (and occasional gal)?
Oh, and the announcers. They are either downright banal or often just plain stupid.
The NFL is a hot mess. Goodell & Co. have ruined football. One thing that does uplift my less than snappy mood — that NFL ratings are dropping and the advertisers are weeing themselves. What a curmudgeonly old curmudgeon I am, eh?
Even though I hate the Presidential election coverage even more than that the shite the NFL are putting out, it was this picture that made me laugh — a rarity in what has been a pretty crappy year so far. Will 2017 be any better?
One of the familiar faces below will probably have something to say about. I am cautiously hopeful.
My stars, what would we do without humor? I am grateful.
It has been eons since I have posted anything about Marshawn Lynch. Not since he retired from the NFL. No I haven’t forgotten about Mr. Lynch or stopped watching him because he is no longer playing. To me he is the single most interesting character out there.
Yes. I have met him. Charming. Magnetic. Real. Class.
Class? Yes, class.
Because of the American obsession with skin color most see people with obvious African lineage as classy only when they mimic people of obvious European lineage. Well not exactly. Let’s just say black folk dressing, speaking and acting like well-to-do white folk.
But never mind that.
One of the things I most love about Lynch is how real he is and true to himself. Such a damn rarity often unappreciated. Many folks find it downright offensive. I thrive on it.
Here is Marshawn being at his real best. What a classy way to say eff you (my interpretation).
Someone presented Mr. Lynch with a New England Patriots tee for him to sign. If you look closely you can see he has written “Beast Mode U Bitch”. The marks above that are reportedly him scratching out the New England logo and team name Patriots. That’s my man.
Lynch has been in Australia supporting and even doing a bit of working out with the Cal football team acting as scout team running back, Cal being his alma mater. But he also launched Beast Mode Australia. Browse Beast Mode Online here.
