    I figured I'd share something special with you all... A piece of writing from yours truly.

    1. Jets fans suck.
    2. Jets fans suck hardcore.
    3. My flashy orange Ginn jersey can make the entire line chant "Ted Ginn Sucks...." at the draft
    4. Stitches, Skeet, and I could have been draft experts at the draft, we had everyone asking us what we thought of each pick...
    5. How to pass 2 hours? Get a fake twenty dollar bill, put it on the sidewalk on the other side of the street, and watch the entire block laugh at everyone who picks it up thinking it's for real.
    6. According to one New Yorker who got out of his car in the middle of the road gave us a speech... He happened to remind me of Meshawn Johnson. I guess if "you ain't from New York... then get the **** out!"
    7. Throwing the football across one of the New York streets is another way to pass two hours in line...
    8. Taxi drivers DO NOT like it when the football hits the top of their car...
    9. And with that in mind, Skeet is not playing quarterback anytime soon.
    10. Stitches got the "*******" chant from the crowd...
    11. Don't judge TractorTraylor's screen name... he's skinny.
    12. When I'm 30 years old, I hope I look as young as Dephins. (sp?)
    13. New York City ordinance saying there's no lining up on the street? They enforced that well...
    14. Apparently you don't need to stand in line, just wait until 9:30 to come and walk around the block until the line sprints to the doors to get the wristbands...
    15. 6 hour trip to Akron, OH... Enforcer and I agreed on two things... The government ****s us over... and toll booths hate him.
    16. 16 hours of sleep in a total of 4 days is not a good combination.
    17. The NFL Draft gets my adrenaline rushing, I went 36-40 hours without any sleep..
    18. Stitches likes to make out with his girlfriend's hand when driving...
    19. How to make it back from Gary, IN back to Cedar Falls, IA when dead tired? 3 caffeine pills and 2 energy drinks in a matter of 6 hours...
    20. How to crash to the extreme when driving from Gary, IN to Cedar Falls, IA when dead tired 6 hours later? 3 caffeine pills and 2 energy drinks in a matter of 6 hours...
    21. Skeet is still loud, he hasn't changed. And Jets fans still hate him.
    22. Skeet can't make me tap out.
    23. Ken's weekend? Women, booze, Dolphins, and sleep. Nothing more, nothing less.
    24. Not knowing the trade rumors when at the draft killed me and many others..
    25. A Packers fan will cry when Antoine Cason is selected a few picks before them...
    26. A Lions fan should know better than come to the draft, poor guy...
    27. A Dolphins fan in our group was at a porn star party before the draft... FINintheMOON Jr?
    28. Prepaid gas was a surprise to me... I love Iowa.
    29. Pennsylvania is boring... I would hate that state if Marino wasn't born there.
    30. Everyone liked my new hair... enough to offer me money to cut it.
    31. Everyone hates the Patriots... And yes, I purposely chose #31 for this one.
    32. Jets fans suck to the extreme. You know why? Because they had to ask the Dolphins fan who Dustin Keller was... Even Samphin could tell you that.

    There you have it, that's what I learned... I'm sure someone will post some more stuff, but that's what I got out of the trip... You should be able to see me on the Dolphins website because I was interviewed by the two Michelles. That orange Ted Ginn jersey that is an eyesore according to many is how you can tell me apart...

    If you think wearing an orange Ginn Jersey in NYC is bad, try wearing an orange Joey Porter jersey to a Bills bar. That was for the Beck game too, not pretty.

    Thing I have learned this draft weekend.

    1. That breaking your toes to the point where the resemble an "L" hurts, but not as bad as you would think.
    2. I am glad I didn't go considering it looked and sounded like a miserable time. hours in line with Griddles? Ugh, kill me now... :hi5:
    3. Never rely on WQAM and the Sun Sentinel for confirmation again.
    4. This whole "learning" gimmick is played out and not really that funny anymore...
     
  5. Samphin

    Samphin Κακό σκυλί ψόφο δεν έχει

    Ouch. That game was an epic failure for every Dolphins fan, including those of us who were sitting at home, alone. I was ashamed to be breathing after the fumble/int TD.

    And to think, I was planning on flying to Buffalo to go to that game... :lol:

    Nah, I had fun listening to my toes snap in half and doing nothing all day.

    Besides, I am a miserable prick on cross country flights home and I think I would have probably caused some type of scene comeing home, so I am ok with the fact that I couldn't go. :up:

    Good to hear you guys had a good time though. Did no one, besides Mary, take pictures?

    I almost threw up when the fumble/int happened. Then I immediately ordered two shots. The thing that really pissed me off though was when Ginn returned one for a TD and then it got called back by a mysterious hold that was never shown.
     
  9. Samphin

    Samphin Κακό σκυλί ψόφο δεν έχει

    I laughed when that happened. At that point, I was sure we would never win a game that season and that play would be the epitome of our season. It would be played over and over and over again for years to come on recap shows and top ten bad teams lists.

    In many ways, John Beck owes Camarillo and Lemon some fancy watches for helping to keep him out of the hall of infamy. It was Garo Yepremian all over again...but worse...horribly, terribly worse.

    Yeah, that 20 dollar thing was fun. It passed about an hour of our morning! We did it again at the rest stop on the way home:sidelol: the first guy picked it up and returned it to us! then the sweeper came by for the second drop. He swept it up like no one was watching. He had gloves on and went around the corner and dug it out of his dust pan contraption!:sidelol: Almost peed myself!

    We used to glue a dollar to the ground in high school and watch the teachers/students try to pick it up. It was hilarious. We actually have some of it on film. :lol:

    I am incredibly worn out. I put 2000 miles on my car in a matter of a little less then a week. Things of mine to add to Griddle list.

    1. Gary,In. makes Pompano Beach,Fl. look like a holiday get away. I now know where in the Heat of the Night was taped. One hour seems like a yr in Gary.

    2. If Griddles tells you he'll be there in a "little bit", make sure to ask him to define "little bit". Apparently in Iowa little bit means 3 hrs, who knew.

    3. Iowa is about ten yrs behind technology. I asked Griddles to count out the next toll, he got out an abacus, true story.

    4. Stitches lives 3 blocks from Lebron James's mom, no, thats not a good thing.

    5. His roommates like to go poo in his bathroom.

    6.Skeet wears the same kind of socks as I do.....thanks for the pair, btw.

    7. Ken likes Def Leppard......ALOT!!!!

    8. The chairs in the hotel rooms suck to sleep on, the floors are worse.

    and most of all after all the horror stories I heard from the guys, I'm glad I stayed at Miami Mike's. But I'm glad the guys had fun...while I was sleeping. :up:

    Heres a tip.....when you go to NY to meet up with some FinFans make sure you get a freakin phone number from someone.

    Dont drive with a car load of AFC North fans and plan on going anywhere YOU want to go.

    Bring your laptop to communicate with people who actually know where Miami Mike's is.

    Dont drink too much at a NYC club and lose your pals in the crowd.

    Never pretend your team had a good draft when your with Bengals fans who always try and bring you down to their level.

    Bring a script of xanax to help sleep on the way back.

    Mat - Are you anywhere near Ames? My nephew started school there but dropped out and moved back to Florida because he said there was nothing but corn there.

    Ames? Probably 2 hours away... Must have went to Iowa State.. The Greek scene there is huge, but the bar scene is not. If you want a huge bar scene, go to Iowa City. If you want a little bit of both, then go to Cedar Falls.

    Yep - he went to Iowa State for about 6 months before he left and went back to where his lived. Guess he was just homesick, because he's not a drinker.
