Da Bud Light commercials got it right with their "it's only weird if it doesn't work" commercials. Any person who's played any organized sport for a considerable amount of time will tell you that there are certain things you do and don't, things you found to "work" and things dat are down right daring a jinx to happen.
It runs da gamut as simple as wearing da same sock for every game - without washing for some, - putting on your shoes left foot first and even as bold as abstaining from sex.
I made a major faux paux dis past Saturday and knew it was going to hurt one way or anoddah. Once da playoffs started, I hadn't shaved. Well, I'm Korean and my hair doesn't grow ovah night so I wasn't worried about a fear-da-beard kinda growth but for me, a week will garner slivers of hairs dat looks like someone decided to use a sharpie and draw whiskers on my uppah lip. I normally shave weekly as I don't enjoy da fu-man-chu look but for some reason kept it since da 49ers won. Da following week, they won again! I definitely didn't plan on shaving but groggily waking up dis past Saturday, I brushed my teeth, looked at my face and next thing I knew I was shaving!
Wassup Wit Dat!
I should have taken a sign dat wen I started, da blade actually tugged at my thread like whiskers a few times and it hurt like a son of a motherless goat! Then I woke up! Oh crap, wat am I going to do now? I couldn't go out and run errands with half my face shaved could I? It was ironic as well dat Da Keiki was about to get her haircut for da first time since birth (three years old now) and I was like...... $h!t, was dis a sign? Did I just screw "us" in Niner Nation?
So on gameday, I did da unthinkable and pleaded with da football gods dat I fully support my Niners with dis........
Crap, nevah work. I take da blame for dis one and da ragging I'm getting from a few of my friends who are Shehawks - sorry, still salty - Seahawks fans. Although I feel dat if da CORRECT penalty was assessed, it wasn't a judgment call, but a clear cut rule book penalty had been made regarding roughing da kicker instead of running into da kicker, da result could/should have been different. Da resulting momentum shift was game changing but still Harbaugh should have called a timeout once we got da first down just outside da 20 with under 30 seconds left. We had two time outs left and yet still, Kapernick should have checked it down as he had a wide open receiver in the left flats easily for 10 yards and with timeouts to burn, would have been easier to convert da next play(s) instead of going for it all one crack.
Oh well, time to suck it up and while I hate to cheer for a team dat made us clear out da lockers, conference loyalty still counts...... for those who can respect da game. GO BRONCOS! Mahalo Sherman for dat easy decision to make.
Guess I'm back to watching da commercials and having a few as punishment.
