Hello readers of Prep in the Midwest! The GF has been brave enough to give me a limited run with you guys to share the man’s point of view. Welcome to the BF corner. Here we will cover all the essentials for the Post Frat Star Midwest Man.
Can you guys feel it? Do you smell it? There is a light crispness in the air and it smells of dried leaves.
It is October, my favorite month of the year. Football is in full swing. I can officially stop being pissed about the Cubs. Blackhawks start up soon. Soup and chili instantly becomes more tasty, and scary movies are going to be on TV all the time now.
I wish October 32 days in it.
What the BF is listening to – Pumped Up Kicks (Foster the People)
This song has been in my head for a little while now. The beat is steady, repetitive, poppy, and eerie all at the same time. First, you get sucked in with a little bit of a head nod to the beat, the chorus pops in. By the time you realize that you are listening to a song about a guy going on a shooting spree you are too hooked to care. Currently it has fallen under some controversy due to the belief that it is about a school shooting.
Who is the person in this song shooting? Marley shot the sheriff, while Johnny Cash shot a man in Reno just to watch him die. End of the day, I don’t care because it is a good song.
What the BF is watching – Sons of Anarchy (FX Tuesdays 9:00pm CDT)
I get hooked on TV shows VERY easily. This one snuck on me out of nowhere. It was a Netflix suggestion from my guy DJ. I destroyed all 3 seasons in less than a week and am now up to date with season 4. The basic plot follows an outlaw biker gang SAMCRO (Sons of Anarchy Motorcycle Club Redwood Original). Each season has had its own unique major conflicts, but it provides a look into the biker gang life. Think Sopranos with Harleys and Kuttes. This season is shaping up to be a solid one. The guest stars so far have included Tom Arnold as a sleezy porn producer, Danny Trejo as a drug cartel leader, and DAVID HASSELHOFF
GAME OF THE WEEK! – Blackhawks vs Bruins (10/15/11 7:30pm)
Wait! Don’t go away! I know football is on and I love it. Sadly, I am slightly pissed off at my teams though. Purdue can’t figure out how to block or tackle anyone. Also, I fear that tuning into the Bears will make me eligible to be pulled into court as a witness for the murder of Jay Cutler. It is just a matter of time until we find a note in Jay’s locker saying that if we find him dead Mike Martz did it. The line can’t block anyone and Martz decides to run 7 step drops with an empty backfield. Hockey is the palette cleanser I need right now.
If you do not watch hockey you need to start. Go to a game and tell me it isn’t awesome. Imagine the flow of and speed of basketball, the collisions of football, the skill of soccer, and FIGHTING! The atmosphere at a game is unreal.
While I am excited for the Blackhawks to be hosting the Jets (formerly the Atlanta Thrashers) this Thursday, Saturday the defenders of Lord Stanley’s cup roll into the Windy City. Both teams are Original Six franchises and have always resulted in a very good game when they play.
Alright, that probably should do it for now. Hopefully I haven’t scared any of you guys away.
