When I Loved Football

My first year of high school. Ah! It was a fun year full of two things: new batch of boys and football. I came attached to our football team. Even though our school wasn’t the greatest at football, a lot of people still had hope. I had some hope but I also had a lot of crushes by the end of the season. Powder Puff Football was another factor that I loved it so much. It was where girls could play flag football. I watched the game my freshman just to get an idea of what I was getting into if I really wanted to do it next year. Which I ended up doing it for the next three years.

It wasn’t just our school’s football team I began to fall for. In 2006, MTV premiered a show called, Two-A-Days. It was a football team in Hoover, Alabama. It was one of the first reality shows MTV started showing. My Tuesdays (I think that was the day they came on) were always set on MTV at 10pm. If I missed an epsiode, they always replayed it throughout the rest of the week. After one episode, I was hooked. Of course I fell for Alex and Max. The show was really good, but it was opposite of my football team at school. Everytime I would watch it, somebody in my family had to crack a joke about our football team. After a while, it became somewhat normal. After the first season ended, I was happy and excited. Because they were saying that season two was starting soon and season one was being released on DVD. I was very happy!

When season two started, I was upset because of the seniors I loved in season one were off to college and you saw less of them. The only one you saw from the first season besides the coach, was their quarterback Ross. He was now the senior in season two. They showed new players from the team and the girlfriends of these players. Brittany was always my favorite from season two. In this time, I was still on MySpace and found her on there and added her as a friend. I was shocked she expected me, but she also had a lot of other people on her friends list too. Some she didn’t know like me. And I can’t lie, I also added Alex too. But this was before I had figured out he had gotten Danielle pregnant and soon after that they got married. I tried to get Max to add me, but he never did. Which was ok, I had Brittany, Alex, and Ross on my friends list. I was a happy camper! Then after MySpace became something of the past. I forgot all about Two-A-Days.

After season two, word got out that something had happen between the school and the coach. I found this out by my mother who was reading the newspaper one day. I was shocked, but I was saying to her it wasn’t true because season three was going to start soon. Even though they never really told us about season three. I had to go back on my MySpace account to find out that MTV was no longer showing Two-A-Days anymore and season two DVD was never released. I was sad, but after three years of searching I finally found season one DVD and I was feeling my happy emotions again it always brought me. I lend my friend the set and haven’t gotten it back since. This was also two years ago. Recently, I remembered telling my mom about Tim Tebow, during season one he went to the rival school of the bucks. I told her, it’s very strange how a guy like him could be so big and was on a show on the opposite team. But you know how I remembered all this, I was on Twitter and an account called “Retweet That Song” had a song by Angels and Airwaves. I had remembered searching for the theme song of Two-A-Days once a few years ago, I just finished listening to it for the second time in over fou years. The song is called, “The War” and it’s still good as I remembered it.

Step Four: The Pictures

So today is Friday, I’ve actually been looking forward to today for two reasons: basketball game tonight and finding my pictures for my drawings. After finishing Duff’s book last night, I decided to take a break from reading, but in my case I’ll take a two day break and want another book to keep me occupied while sitting on my bed in the mornings while everybody is still asleep. I can read on my bed, but not draw. My hips hurt and fall asleep enough that I don’t need anything else up there. Just searched for head shots of the original members of Guns N Roses, which was a bust. I’m trying not to find anything too detailed that causes stress on my behalf. I was also trying to find only black and white pictures. Which was going good until the only picture of Axl I liked was too small. So I will the same picture just in color. Once I print it out, it’ll be in black and white anyways so we’re good. I’m actually getting excited to do this, and I never thought I’d say that again. Hopefully, I will be printing off this pictures and getting started on them. Here’s the pictures I’ve selected:

Book Review: It’s So Easy (and other lies)

My third book in the spider web I’ve put myself in between two bands. Before I even wanted to read Slash and Nikki Sixx’s books, the only book I was concerned with was Duff’s book. In November, I went online to see how much it was and it was $32.99 but it had just came out so that was kind of the reason why it was so much. So I had to look around and that’s how I found and read Slash’s book first. When I was reading Slash’s book, there were some things in there that made go, oh god, did he really just say that? I thought that throughout the whole damn book. In Nikki’s book, I was more scared about the events he wrote about and the drug abuse. Both had a lot of stories of drug abuse. It freaked me out!

When I decided to get another book after I finished Nikki’s book. At first, I didn’t want to read Duff’s book. I thought it was going to the same stories in Slash’s book just in different text and perspectives. I knew drugs and alcohol were going to be in this book, and that was my reason of not wanting to go ahead and reading it. I had already read about two recovering drug addicts, I didn’t think I could get through reading about another one. Well, after some looking around at other books. I caved in and bought it. And I do not regret it. Out of all three books this one was my favorite. It was the reason why I love biographies of different people.

In the beginning, I was reading about how he had panic attacks, he was offered to become a pastry chef (which I’ve got to say, through me for a loop), how much he cared for everybody, surviving after his pancreatitis, getting clean from everything, just different things like that. Things you would not expect for a person in his shoes would do. Really? It’s crazy, but that’s what made reading his story that much better! I like to be surprised by certain things by different people. You know that quote don’t judge a book by its cover? Yeah, everybody needs to keep that in mind, especially while reading this book. Because everything you think a person is, it could totally be the opposite. I definitely recommend this book to anyone. It’s worth the read, trust me!
