"For The Love Of God, Montresor!"
Yesterday I was out for a walk, and my meanderings took me past a local sports bar. Outside the door, on one of those folding, sandwich-board deals restaurants often use to advertise the day's specials, events, etc. On said board was written, proudly in big letters (paraphrasing):
"WE HAVE NBA LEAGUE PASS!!! JOIN US FOR ALL THE 2011-2012 BASKETBALL ACTION!!! YOUR HOME FOR HOOPS!!!"
Um ... two questions.
1. Are they being intentionally mean to hoops fans? Is this some kind of sick joke?
2. How in the hell does anyone get made Manager of a sports bar if you have no idea that one such sport is currently locked out and in all likelihood will not commence play until January at the earliest and then, in blithe ignorance, advertise your establishment as a venue in which to enjoy that selfsame, currently-nonexistent, sport?
Sigh. Grumble. Grumbly sigh. Of Doom.
