I can’t believe The Rookwas canceled. Although I do have to say that *one* scene may have created unrealistic expectations between lovers around the world, because not everyone can split their personality four-ways between a collection of bodies varying in gender, scruffiness, and haircare, yet maintaining a consistent level of smolder.
No, I don’t think we’ll end up with a dog. But then again, I never thought we would have a tetherball setup in the backyard either, but here we are.
Speaking of tetherball, I miss sports.
Is ESPN showing South Korean baseball yet?
Because I will totally watch South Korean baseball.
I will also watch repeats of European handball championships.
South Korean baseball is on! Not only that, but the Johnsonville Cornhole Championships are listed next on the schedule.
No, I’m not making that up.
I’m also not making this up: South Korean baseball features cheerleaders in masks and a cardboard-cutout ‘crowd’ behind home plate, which is kind of brilliant.
I saw an article on Facebook about sports announcers turning to mundane things. The first random comment I saw rejoiced in the lack of sports on TV, which made me surprisingly mad. Not ‘Murder Hornet’ mad, mind you, but not unlike my experience in Wales when I indignantly upbraided my fellow foreign exchange student for impugning the honor of Britney Spears; I didn’t particularly care about Britney Spears, but I would be damned if I let my British flatmates think I was as provincial as some guy named Tim from Indiana.
Sure, I get sports aren’t that important, but don’t insult what matters to sports fans. It may be mundane, but it’s my mundane.
Okay, time for bed. I can’t top cardboard-cutout baseball fans. Plus, the Johnsonville Cornhole Championships have apparently been pre-empted by mixed-martial arts highlights.
If I want to watch mixed-martial arts, I’ll just watch my six year old as she practices Tae Kwon Do via Zoom in our living room. That’s real indomitable spirit, my friends, a six year old staying happy and sweet despite everything.
She deserves a dog. I just don’t know if she’ll get one.
