Ok, so this is a bit out of character for me. No, not the "drinking Olympia while sitting at a bar" part. The "into a BASKETBALL game" bit. You see, I really haven't ever cared for basketball, to me, the game was always something to do in gym class when there's nothing else to do.
But here at 317, when I've been sitting at the bar longer than anticipated (thanks to the owner for giving me a couple of free drinks), and I find myself getting fairly excited about the Celtics/Lakers game. Maybe it's because it brings back high school memories- the last time there was a Boston-LA final I was really into the Red Hot Chili Peppers and BloodSugarSexMagik was new (to the uninitiated- they have a song about Magic Johnson (on Mother's Milk)). Maybe it's the unadulterated competition, Maybe it's the slick, wiley moves each team relies on to score. Which, in an entirely non-linear way conjures up memories of racing alleycats. Regardless, I'm having a hell of a time, getting involved in basketball is a passion I normally eschew.
I suggest you try it sometime.

...or maybe you're drunk enough that anything on the glowing tube would grab your attention. I mean, hey, I even watched a couple football games a couple years ago, it happens.

Gonna tell you a story that you won't believe
But I fell in love last Friday evenin'
With a girl I saw on a barroom T.V. screen
Well I was just gettin' ready to get my hat
When she caught my eye and I put it back
And I ordered myself a couple o' more shots and beers
