This Is The End...

of a long and productive day and work week. Sometimes you just have to say "darn it" and take a night off from the office to keep your sanity and celebrate with a few pitchers of beer and your buds from the office.
Last night was one of those nights. A few co-workers and I decided to go to the new Lucky Strike bowling alley here in DC - the ONLY bowling alley within the city limits...messed up huh, Brooklyn?
Anyway, it was going to be the DOJ vs. some of the FBI agents we work with...yes, the same agents Libby and Rove lied to on several occasions (we are still busting their chops over that). As you may know, bowling is part skill, part luck and part psyching out your opponents with trash talk and mental intimidation. Having left my ball and lucky shoes in Chicago I was a little nervous about being rusty, but was determined to do my best so I wore:
  • my lucky sweats from Amherst College (torn knee, a few sentimental grass stains from rugby),
  • my lucky sleeveless (altered in 1983 by an ex-girlfriend after we saw Flashdance) New York Rangers Jersey (#2 - Brad Park), and
  • a jewel encrusted skull cap and gold chain (with wall clock) personally given to me by Flavor Flav for unofficially helping him and Public Enemy out of a free speech jam once.

The DOJ Ballbusters as we call ourselves were all ready to open a can of whoop ass on the G-men until we got there and I saw this! --->

Needless to say, after going home, changing and then going all the way back to Gallery Place my confidence had waned and I didn't do as well as I had hoped - bowling a 169, 198, and 220.

Today I sent for my shoes and ball and am looking for a real bowling alley in the suburbs that allows players and young brothers!

You made some of that up didn't you. If bowling relizes you thats good. I did bowl once but it just was my thing. I couldn't lit the bowling ball. But I got a lot of gutter bowls and don't ask my score. I'm glad your having a little fun.

Bowling is a lost art. Growing up in the Midwest it was the local teenage hangout. Learned to like fried onion rings and guys with greasy hair. (Age has dimmed both obsessions.)

Ah yes, the memories of a carefree and misspent youth.

Chug a pint in my name, Mr. Fitz.

Don't worry Jackie, the jewels are costume and the chain was plated, otherwise I would not have accepted the gift.

Is there any way that you can have an edit button when I mess up on my comments?

I cannot believe of the Lucky Strike sign. Washingon DC is sure is a hopping town. With all the restrictions of attire, you might as well gone bowling wearing your business attire... I haven't gone bowling in ages. I do bowl gutter balls...

Fitz,

There is no way that the picture is really Flavor Flav. I was a big fan of Public Enemy in the 80's. That man looked like Flavor Flav's father. And the big clock around that person's neck is definitely from the swapmeet. Flavor Flav wears more bling bling! That person who doesn't have a fish sandwich to his name is a wantabee....

So it's 11:45 on a Friday night, I just watched The Kingdom of Heaven and I still don't understand what the fighting is all about - that movie certanly didn't give me any insight...Hollywood - if they've got British accents it's SUPPOSED to be a better movie. Hey - I really dig Shakespeare, but please....Shakespeare it aint!

Autographed pitures to Jackie, Kit, and me...I am growing sleepy - autographed pictures to Jackie, Kit, and me....

Sir Patrick: Are the DOJ Scouts aka PJF FLY GIRRRRLS (aka Jackie, Kit and yours truly) not as worthy of receiving a picture (signed and autographed as they always say even though it is redundant) as the President of the Patrick Fitzgerald Estrogen Fan Club!? We are not just fans - we are the Worker Bees!

We sing and hum for the Good, the Noble, And the Just, the Courageous, and while we're at it, the Chivalrous.

Fitzgerald,

Watch Into the Blue movie and take a date or something...you will find out the real truth about the Khazar Zionists. It is a nasty little surprise....I guarantee you that...

They controlled Florida's columbian drug smuggle operation.....it was one heck of a film, perfect for the DOJ.

What is the deal with the damned clock that Flavor Flav that he always wear all the time. Have you ever seen his VH1 reality show Strange Love which was on several months ago? It was hilarious. Flav and Bridgette Nielson had a relationship on the show. Very unlikely pair.
