Olympic hockey is happening right now. Wait, let me clarify: Olympic hockey is happening for T.J. Oshie — it’s just kind of happening to everyone else.
I know, I know: no snark, negativity or criticism? What’s glitchgoals coming to?? Sorry. I’m taking a minute to defer to the truest American hero of our time. T.J. Oshie is like Rocky meets Rambo (with a dash of every other cast member from The Expendables). He wins everything today.
….Vaguely based on ST’s awesome post and, unfortunately, my own life. Enjoy!

There was only one review posted: An aggressive, incendiary 1-star review that effectively called ST’s dad a lecherous fraud whose office doubled as a terrifying sex dungeon. It sounds ridiculous, but this is barely an exaggeration (of the uh, review, not of his dad or the business).
Since I’m all about making a meaningful impact on the world as long as I don’t have to leave my computer, I decided I’d make my own Yelp profile to counter-balance that obviously fake review…with a 5-star fake review of my own. (Look, if life were a morality contest, would you REALLY want to win?)

I haven’t seen a shellacking like that since my pancake incident! That was probably one of the most lopsided wins I’ve ever seen in a football game. Shit, the Jags and Bucs played the Seahawks better than the Broncos. Continue reading “OMG IZ DISS DA NEW TOM BRADY LOL?!??!?”
(JSG note: I changed the format of the blog and for some reason this post just BLEW UP the font size for some reason…and I can’t fix it no matter how hard I try. So we’re just gonna leave it for now. Sorry, ST! On the plus side, now we can share your post with people all the way across a room! Or with my grandparents from a few inches away.)
Want to have a productive discussion with an NFL fan?? Try bringing up who they think the best quarterback of all time is and why. Their response will inevitably be: “bwuhhhhh who’s won the most Super Bowls again?” Continue reading “The Big Game”
