when you are trying to win you’ll try anything

so today i didnt ask to leave work early to rush home to watch the game

i didnt even leave work until late.

then i ubered. then i lyfted.

people didnt wanna go very far but fuckit.

rich lady and her friend.

two sorority girls going across campus.

rich guy going four blocks.

it was a little bit of a joke actually that i just kept going in circles.

almost like the universe was all come on tony watch the game

your team is fighting for their lives in the playoffs!

but i just listened on the radio.

made $50 and headed home.

im gonna die poor and misunderstood.

something will happen to this blog and i betya even archive.org wont be able to cache it properly

and i know i shouldnt worry about these kinds of things, i should just worry whether the Lord will forgive me for causing pain in peoples lives.

i dont mean it when it happens. am i not supposed to care about things? isnt it worse when no one cares. i care.

so much.

so of course when i got home i turned on the game on my phone and sat in my car as the cubs struggled to get out of the 8th

no thanks to the umps who had a discussion and decided that no matter how much they enjoyed working with the cubs manager joe maddon

they were gonna fuck him in front of the home crowd.

and he yelled at this one and that one and the other and then behind his back one of the umps threw him out of the game

joe cares. thats how he became great. thats why they gave him mgr of the year last year.

and thats how he got all those gray hairs.

and after the game he was polite and said he respects the umps and have enjoyed dealing with them this year

but they were wrong.

and after the game one of the umps agreed

i was wrong, he said.

cubs won any how.

inspite of them.

inspite of everything.

you can’t say you beat LA in 7 games unless you lose 3 first

i was sick yesterday. from the wind? from the stress of the game?

from the lady this weekend who sat behind me coughing as i snapchatted our panels?

who knows. all i knows is i lazed around yesterday not thinking of nothing and i feel better today.

you know whats weird about life? no matter how old you get there will always be someone who thinks they know about what you know better than you.

look no further than no drama obama.

my man took us from the depths of a recession into so much prosperity that even after he is gone the stock market is booming and unemployment is lower and lower.

but do people run around saying OMG OBAMA THANK YOU?

no. in fact they LET all the fakers and liars say the opposite.

so if that happens to someone who so clearly turned the ship around, imagine what theyre saying ’bout you willis?

and trust me, i know i throw a lot of curveballs. i dress humbly the way the bible says. i live humbly as the gospel preaches. but i work hard, i skate fast, and i leave behind a path of smiles and laughter.

meanwhile those who leave in their wake heartache, confusion and misery are held higher because they wear a dress shirt.

i wore a dress shirt at the LA Times and that didn’t keep me from getting canned even after i took top of the ticket from a half million to a million to two million to three million month after month.

if people dont want you around theyre not gonna care what you do to the scoreboard. theyre gonna make up lies. theyre gonna say that wasnt really a recession theyre gonna say those numbers are fake news theyre gonna say

republicans woulda turned it around faster.

so heres the good news. you do move the needle. you do make things better. you are the i in team.

you are the magic in the makeup

so stop making up negativity.
