Boy, I was certainly harsh on the Suns last night. It’s not like I feel badly about it because they could care less, of course, and will never know my thoughts on it either way. It just bothered me that I could get so worked up over a game.
It occurred to me that being a fan of a team that has never won a championship is a lot like unrequited love. There are some great moments along the way, but in the end, it is just an empty, sad feeling, and eventually you have to move on or go crazy. I don’t want to go crazy.
I’m also not going to ever fully move on from being a Suns fan. I’ll always root for them and hope for a championship. I’d just like to figure out how to avoid being so irked by them on a regular basis. Just thinking about it makes me want to go off on a rant about how frustratingly inconsistent they have been lately.
But I won’t.
I think I have written about this before, but I really enjoy the show, The Rookie. It’s just a lot of fun and quite often, pretty clever. Last night I watched the latest episode and while there wasn’t anything super special about it, it just gave me about 45 minutes of entertainment.
The small things in life make it pretty great sometimes.
I had a short but really nice conversation in Costco with a fellow in line. He let Rhondi and I go before him and we had a pleasant conversation about the ease of just being nice. We talked for a few minutes and then said goodbye as we left. I don’t know anything about him except he was very nice.
Little things like a short conversation can help you (and maybe others) enjoy a little good karma or a smile. Kindness is communicable and goes a long way. It travels well, too.
I wish more people knew that it’s actually easier to be kind than to be mean. It takes less energy. There is less stress. You feel better when you are kind. A lot of people don’t realize that serving others feels really good and it’s the best way to serve yourself. Jesus was big on this. Too bad the Je-ple (Jesus people) don’t often remember it.
Lining the pockets with money and lost souls
The Je-ple prepare for the end of the world
It won’t ever come but the Je-ple don’t care
The Je-ple are coming.
We the Je-ple
in order to force a more murderous union
infantile and unjust
and not fucking tranquil
Not fucking tranquil
Because of people on welfare
But we feel good about who we are.
Blame, blame, blame, blame, blame.
See you tomorrow.
