So I had a little heart palpitation moment on the way to work this morning. For only half a block or so, I was walking behind a Dane Cook look-a-like. To clarify, a Dane Cook pre-haircut, circa Mr. Brooks look-a-like. Now I know it was not the real deal -- well, because, hello -- but also because he was wearing a sleeveless T and had tats (tribal tats to be specific, ill). That's not very Dane-esque, but I'm saying there was a resemblance.

Regardless, he stopped at one of those breakfast cart things and I kept trucking. But had it been Dane, breakfast would have called my name, there would have been some witty banter while waiting in line for a bagel and then the inevitable of him falling for me Good Luck Chuck-style would have happened. Just putting that out in the universe.

Editor's note

I just received an email from my father, stating that I had wrongly identified the non-Bills fan (see entry below). This is funny because a) I identified my brother Scott as the non-Bills fan (he's in the tye-die) and b) read over this a million times and never caught it. It is the guy to the far LEFT that is the non-Bills fan and therefore not a McLean.

Thank you Fasha...without you, I am dyslexic! :)


4-0, 0-4

What a weekend of football.

For college...three of the top five AP ranked teams were upset and overall, a total of nine ranked teams lost, six of them to unranked teams. Craziness.

As for the NFL...the once Buffal-uh-oh Bills are now the Buffal-4-and-0 Bills. My fausha and brothers were at the Rams game (who just fired their head coach after the loss), and had a 4-0-tastic time. I'm happy for my crazy Buffalo fan Scott (in the tye-dye) because as he said it best, they haven't been this good since he was twelve. He is now 28.
Please note the only person in the picture above (far left) not wearing a Bills shirt is not a McLean. I'm just sayin.

On the Bengals front...not so good. Actually, quite the exact opposite of the Bills, as we are currently sitting at 0-4. Maybe I have to wait 16 years for a 4-0 start as my brother did.

As for Fantasy...the Manhattan Mamas are 4-0 and the only undeated team in my league. What, what?



I heart Altar Boyz.

Now, if you know me, you might have heard me say that once before in my CCD days but this time I'm talking about the hilarious off-Broadway musical about a struggling Christian boy band from Ohio trying to make it in the Big Apple.

Yesterday Carls and I went to see the boyz get down with G.O.D. at the New World Stage Theater. With songs lyrics like "Girl, You Make Me Want to Wait" and "Jesus Called Me on My Cell Phone" you know good times were had.

And the icing on the cake? I got to see my SYTYCD crush Neil Haskell break it down in person...flips and all, yay!

Regardless, if you are looking for 90-minutes of full out fun, this is the show for you. Go in peace.
