Two Minute Warning
Some of you are gonna give me crap, 'cause you think I'm being facetious or melodramatic. But I swear it has been an exhausting week. I've had to do more parties than I did New Year's weekend.
But it's over. Now I can lay on the couch on the porch, sip suds, enjoy a good stogie, watch the half time commercials, and just do little else.
First though, my final thoughts:
- Mark Wahlberg is a classy guy. In the few minutes I got to chat with him Friday night, he was all about his charitable foundation that raises scholarship money for needy youth to attend college. Whereas other celebs I chatted up were all about what they were wearing and how cool it was to have a little limelight.
- Vince Papale, the guy Wahlberg portrays in Invincible, a true story about an Average Joe who gets a shot at playing in the NFL, is even nicer. At one party I attended, Papale stood out for his attitude. He was just thrilled to be alive. He was running around introducing people to his son and daughter - cute kids. He was grateful that Wahlberg did him justice in the film. He was just having fun.
- The funniest comedians are the ones who tell stories, not jokes. Actor, stand-up, and former MTV VJ Bll Bellamy put on a pretty good show at B.E.D. nightclub in South Beach Friday night, and it occured to me that he might've told one joke. The rest were stories about his childhood, his upbringing, good and bad scenes from the old neighborhood. So it's understandable why comedian Rick Reynold's "Only the truth is funny" routine was so successful back in the day.
- Finally, in praising the Colts' amazing offense, let's not forget that you also have to stop the other team from scoring in order to win. That's why I'm bucking the pro analysts and picking Da Bears to take it this evening.
That's all for me, folks. I'll pick things up after the game.
