Welcoming The Weekend With Blimps (Hear Me Out)

Every week, I come here and try my best to tangentially associate something I like or find funny or interesting to sports. This week: Blimps.

Welcoming The Weekend With Blimps (Hear Me Out)

Estimated Reading Time: 3 Minutes

You made it! It’s finally the end of another work week. Sure, the weekend has lost a bit of its luster lately, but no work is still no work, even if it is just sitting at home doing nothing. I mean, unless you have kids or a family or responsibilities and if so, that’s a “you” problem.

Take My Hand

Ok, bear with me. Every week I come here and try my best to tangentially associate something I like or find funny or interesting to sports. While this week is no different it simultaneously is? Look, if we do not challenge ourselves our minds will atrophy into pointless globs of nothing that love Two and A Half Men and think office gifs are hilarious and acceptable replies on twitter. What’s my point? Fair question. I have no greater point. This is more of an existential trial that I am conducting, so if you want out now I understand. I already got your click so you’ve completely lost any and all value to me as a person anyways.

If you are still with me, you have been rewarded with this brilliant nugget of nostalgia. If you were a spoiled piece of shit, like I was, you had one of these. If you were a mistake and your parents regretted having you then you didn’t and I’m very clearly better than you.

At this point you may be wondering how will I tie this into sports? Can it be done? Have you wasted your time with a false prophet who promises salvation only to be outed as a fraud who works part time at a mall kiosk selling fidget spinners and vape pens? Wasted your time, of course, the rest, TBD.

Get To The Point

Here is my proposal. We all are aware of the Goodyear Blimp. It travels around to sporting events as some sort of unnecesary relic like reminder of a bygone day. With the skycam and other technological advnacements it is no longer needed. Therefore, I have decided it should be replaced with a complete reskin to match the above.

I did it. We made it. What a ride. Are you glad you came this far? If you are, my DMs are open and please reach out because you are somehow worse off than I am, thank you.

Josh grew up in the midwest and upon graduating from the University of Iowa he wanted to see the world. After 4 years in Jacksonville he decided he was cultured enough and moved on to Birmingham England (known to the locals as the Detroit of the UK) and then west to San Francisco before settling in NYC. He pays his bills working in finance making sure the 1% remains on top. When he is not selling his soul and unable to look himself in the mirror, he spends his time writing mean things about sports while his dog, Sweet Dee, silently judges from her spot on the couch. He is very biased and never wrong. He would also like to thank Rotowire for never changing their NBA League Pass and MLB.TV passwords from that year when he was an NBA Beat Writer for the Nuggets for some reason.
