AP – http://www.startribune.com/sports/vikings/278137431.html In my infosnacking, I kept hearing the word ‘orgy’, and I was moved to ask…. Is there some stylebook guidance on that? Cuz I think what Peterson had going was much less classy than an ‘orgy’. I think what they call that with Peterson are ‘gang bangs’, although maybe that’s a bit too pejorative for the newspaper. Don’t ask me though, maybe I’m wrong, never been to one. I have hay in my shoes.
Well not really hay in my shoes. I was a suburban white kid, but same dif. I liked this article by Jonathon Chait. http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2014/10/what-liberals-get-wrong-about-football.html He makes me feel not so pathetic for remembering my own highlight reel of shit so fondly. I didn’t play football, I played soccer and baseball. In an amateur playoff game, I once came in and struck out the side with the bases loaded. I was about 22, a skinny soft tosser, and not a good player. It was all curveballs. I had been obsessively working on my curveball for about 7 years by then, and I could put a lot of spin on the ball. I digress. I agree with Chait, and I agree with him on a more tangential point that my generation is more like our parents than the millennials.
