No Game? Blame Phones

BGOBGAI! Quickie:

Want to know why the WNBA will not attract the mainstream audience? No, not because its women playing and not men (that’s blatantly sexist).  It’s because the players in the WNBA haven’t mastered the spin-duck-wave move that previous generations of women had mastered.

What’s the spin-duck-wave move? Try to remember back to a time when phones had cords…and these cords were attached to phone jacks that were mounted on the wall.  In this case, it’s the kitchen wall.  Whenever there were children around, mothers had to wave that cord over the kids’ heads, spin around having got caught turning around while on the phone and then ducking below the cord in order to retrieve something dropped.

Somewhere along the line, you gals lost the ability to super duck, mighty spin, and wave that had been built up for generations…I naturally blame cell phones and their persistent lack of cords.

And don’t worry, ladies. We men have lost more skills than we ever thought we had, including the ability to form coherent sentences when there is an attractive woman around or the skill we’ve never had of lowering toilet seats, so you all are so much better off than we ever were!

Greetings blog wanderers and seekers of truth, or whatever truth appears to be from the mind of a warped individual. You have reached the inner sanctum of some guy named Alan. Having graduated college sometime shortly after the Earth cooled, he finds himself in his late 30's and working out in the real world. His humor is dry and his outlook not so serious and somehow has picked up the nasty habit of writing about himself in the third person. He is married with child and loves his family, sports and, of course, his beloved video games...likelihood of his growing up? Not good. Are you an established site or magazine looking for a writer? Drop me a line if you are interested.
