You know how people boycott brands whose makers they don’t approve of? Well, I’m taking it to the football sense.
I hate the Patriots for their cheating ways. Robert Kraft owns them and there’s a lot of Kraft products out there. It’s bad enough they got to this Super Bowl XLIX by cheating. If they win it, I’m going to boycott all Kraft products till they are dethroned.
I know my actions won’t make a dent in their income and such. However, I’m doing my part and that’s all I can really do. If that’s not good enough, then you can extend the argument to why vote where the action of one individual won’t mean a heck of a lot. It’s a principle and morals stand that’s worth far more personally than it ever might be socially.
Unless it catches on as a meme, of course, hahaha. Too bad I don’t think people are nuts enough to do it. But I’ll tell you one thing, it’ll make for one heck of a good short party story while my boycott lasts if the Pats win. If not, I’ll still minimize my Kraft purchases after Deflategate… even more so than my restraint after Spygate. :)
The Super Bowl is the biggest betting day of the year. There are bets and odds available for just about everything, including some really ridiculous things!
Given that premise, I want to know the odds being offered for something far less ridiculous, which is the New England Patriots cheating. Seriously, they are serial cheaters. When they get caught, it’s not for an instance, but a long running scheme they had been running to the point of getting caught. They know the NFL marketing machine well that big penalties aren’t going to be handed out so that the crime is well worth the risks. No wins forfeited. No Super Bowl trips retracted. But also no big prizes if they don’t cheat either cause have they won any Super Bowls since Spy Gate?
So yes, very seriously, what’s the Vegas line for the Patriots cheating this Super Bowl XLIX???
I’d bet on more than even. Question is will the Pats get caught, not would they do it. :)
Laugh if you want, but serious swing dancers will tell you that leading and following is good for your dancing!
I had some scrap fabrics left from a short sleeve set of pajamas I just realized I’ve never blogged. Anyway, it was an “unofficial” Avengers print. Bunch of Marvel superheroes that were on the Avengers at some point. Doesn’t say much, I suppose. Just about every Marvel superhero has been on the Avengers, it seems.
With scraps and separate characters, an idea came to mind to make a toque since those have small pieces so each one could display a character! I used a McCall pattern but it was terrible for fit so I won’t bother mentioning it here. What it did mean, though, was that I gave it to my cousin’s little boy as it barely fit me but didn’t cover my ears fully and was not completely functional as a result.
The finished product is shown below in photo and video that was fun to improvise, but isn’t as clear as the photos. Brought out the geek in me. ;)
Yup, Marvel is killing off Deadpool… a character with Dead in his name.
But we all know comic book characters don’t die forever, especially not popular ones. So I’m suggesting he comes back with the same name, just with a space in between. Totally different meaning. Can be totally different character.
And his biggest pet peeve will be “don’t call be Pool, fool!”
Mr. T. style, of course. :)
Funeral is scheduled for April in Deadpool 250.
