I’m going to talk about some old news because I’ve been secluded in the sun on vacation in Tahiti these past few days (translation: huddled in front of laptop in damp and freezing Bay Area).
Overheard conversation last season:
Young child: Who is that?
Dad: FP Santangelo. You know, the one Mommy likes.
I was never a huge Sports Phone 680 listener but it was my go-to show after depressing losses, when the post-game show ended too soon. Really good therapy. The wolfpack and all that. The volume of female callers with odd things to say was funny too. So since moving to a new city is always a little disorienting, I’ve made a mini-guide to help him out in DC.
First, he’s going to need some cupcake stores. This article in The Washington Post has lots of ideas. Personally, the place that touts their designer cupcakes sounds good to me. If he’s feeling swamped and needs some entertainment, Lady Gaga is playing at the Verizon center in the end of February. If musicals are more his style, then Wicked is opening in June. And if he needs to pick up some snappy clothes for his new gig, there is a Burberry store at 1155 Connecticut Ave.
Beautiful Burberry ad. With Emma Watson missing a leg. You might, you know, see a one-legged Emma Watson if you head over to the Burberry store. They should have put that on the ad.
So hasta la vista, FP. Have a good time in DC.
Really, Really Old News
Joe Martinez was traded to the Indians. So he will be moving hangouts from the Indianapolis Indians to the Cleveland Indians. Or the Columbus Clippers, as the case may be, which sounds suspiciously like a basketball team. Despite the name, I am becoming something of a fan for the team as well as the actual Indians. And if some strange luck takes me to Cleveland in the coming year, I will go to a game and show some, you know, Indians pride. Because I am filled with Indians pride, just waiting to get out.
