|Much like this VW, the wheels are at least half off the Syracuse Orange bus|
Basically here are my thoughts on the game in a nutshell: another slow start doomed the Orange; Dion Waiters spent the game in the penalty box; James Southerland spent the day sitting next to him which will no doubt provide fuel to conspiracy theorists everywhere; SU still doesn't do a good enough job on the boards; and the team didn't get many calls. Plus Jae Crawford is a beast. After the game people seemed pissed at Scoop and even though a couple of plays down the stretch didn't go his way, I thought he played well. You don't hand out 13 assists playing the game with one hand on your dick.
So that's the extent of the analysis you're getting on this one from me. Besides, as an SU fan you are bummed right now. Let me cheer you up by providing you with a quick story about how I spent my weekend, because there's nothing more humorous than other people's misery. It went a little something like this:
I get home from work Friday night and realized my roof was leaking. It seems the extremely shitty weather we've had in the northeast joined forces with my extremely shitty roof to produce water in the domicile. This was an unwanted occurence to say the least. A normal human would try and immediately rectify the situation, but not me. I crawl into my insulation filled attic, put a pan up there to catch the leak and went to he bar. Because if you suck at home repairs -- and let me reassure you I am beyond terrible -- it makes sense to tackle such a project hungover.
So Saturday rolls around and the project begins. I won't bore you with all the details, but rest assured it consisted of 27 trips to Lowes and countless hours laying on my belly in the aforementioned attic trying to remedy a problem from the inside that needed to be dealt with from the outside. On one of those trips I purchased a roof rake, which in theory is supposed to help you remove snow from your roof. What it doesn't do is remove ice. A roof rake versus ice is like Alcorn State versus anyone. The rake had no shot -- but at least it cost $40.
I didn't even watch the game live - I taped it and when I sat down to watch it was greeted with 20 minutes of Norfolk State - Morgan State to start the broadcast. That was a bad sign. Two hours later Jimmy Butler was making a tough three to win the game and I almost wished the other game was still on. An even worse sign greeted me Sunday when I realized I'd be spending more time in the attic. It seemed the leak was still rolling through the house like Seton Hall rolled through SU's 2-3 zone.
The bottom line is I need to get a significant amount of ice off my roof which just so happens to be extremely steep and not something I'm prepared to do - so if anyone's got a good recommendation on a reputable roofer in the Albany area, let me know. Otherwise I'll be spending Monday calling companies at random because it's probably more practical to pay someone to do this than fall off myself and die. Death sucks.
So, to recap, my fun-filled weekend has left me bruised, cut up from the insulation, pissed off at the fact that the problem isn't solved and looking forward to a potentially 24 more inches of snow on Wednesday....ah good times. On the bright side, I got a sweet roof rake out of the deal.
