With Halloween and the election campaign season nearing its end, this week was full of a variety of Lookers. In my neighborhood alone, I saw a grown man dressed as a clown, another as Freddy Krueger, and a final one as what I perceived as a “werewolf of London.” As if the costumes weren’t creepy enough, the latter two were just walking around by themselves without any children of their own. Of course, I immediately questioned their motives (i.e., pedophiles anyone?) and steered my 3-year-old far away from them as possible.
On a much lighter note, there is the story of Liam Roybal, the 7-year-old kid who dressed up as Texas Rangers’ manager Ron Washington (see above photo). I encourage you to read the story about Liam in the Dallas Morning News. If that photo of him doesn’t put a smile on your face, I’ll kiss your ass. I mean, look at that smile!
A day before the general elections, I’m sure you agree with me in that I’m ready for the campaign season to be over! The number of TV ads and telephone calls have been crazy this year. Yet, there are always a few ads that I thoroughly enjoy due to their complete ludicrous nature. One was brought to me by fellow TGR contributor Rob Pedigo in which the ad claims a candidate “kicks children in the face.” Yep, you read that correctly. Watch the ad for yourself.
You may be asking yourself what all of this has to do with UK athletics? Well folks, with another disappointing loss from our beloved football team this past weekend and the fact that basketball has yet to take full precedent in the Bluegrass State, I find myself resorting to comedy in times like these. I encourage all of you to join me as we bask in our sorrows together. Until next week, my friends, stay elevated.
