From the Armchair: Falcons, Week 9
Beans: I am so excited about July football camp. I watched the game. Why did I do that?
Ash: Ha, probably for the same reason I did. We're masochists.
Beans: No way, I'm from the south.
Ash: Lol…the durrty south, though.
Beans: Yes. ;). Ash, I had the craziest dream Sunday afternoon. I dreamed I was watching the Atl-Car game, and Carolina was beating the cold, living **** out of Atlanta. Crazy. Is that weird or what?
Ash: Lmao. Very. Didn't happen… ‘cept on Sunday afternoon.
Beans: Yeah, I was hoping for a different result for sure. There were glimmers of hope in the game, you just had to tape your eyelids open so not to miss them.
Ash: And the b*stards managed to hang around teasing til the 4th. Carolina isn’t that good, btw. They suck too, actually. But we knew that, I suppose.
Beans: Yeah, went into the 4th thinking we might pull this one out.
Ash: Can't win with no D, though. I wish I could've missed them. Idk why I was cussing the whole game, I knew what was going to happen. I'm a glutton for punishment I think. I tried to turn once. Fail.
Beans: Defense is killing me. I am looking forward to seeing Clowney on the D-line next year, though. *** ******.
Beans: No, I'm Beans.
Ash: *snort* Yes, yes you are. Oh, and my QB trying to make something happen when there is no one there to make it happen with is hurting his numbers. He needs to quit it, cause those who don't see the games are gonna start thinking he's a Flaccup or Gawd forbid, a RomEli.... he is not. Maybe he's seeing Julio's ghost...like on the video games!
Beans: I feel for the guys, and Coach Smith can't suit up and play so he isn't the blame. It is a season you try to get through, I guess. I'm beginning to think 11-5 may be out of reach.
Ash: Oh sh**...lol. Stop. It does suck because they can't stop the bleeding. My coach... he was hellraiser fuming on the sidelines and I felt bad for him but that angry face makes me laugh so much.
Beans: Falcons should have and could have had this one.
Ash: Hey! You were wrong-ish about Jackson. His old, slow ass had positive yards. Pretty sure he wasn’t ready to come back, he's getting in shape on the field when it's really not that crucial at this point. He's 30, right? I think at 33 with the bad knees and all, I am much faster than him right now, but he’ll get it in gear.
Beans: Jackson had a decent game. I was glad to see that, at least. I totally believe my purchase of Falcons gear in the preseason screwed this year up.
Ash: Uh no, you’re not Jess.
Beans: Well, I guess that's good for Jess that I'm not.
Ash: Or good for Trever.
Ash: In our division, it’s basically like this pretty consistently the last few years, at least one team tends to be really up and one really down... this year there are 2 of us. I assume next season, S*ints and Falcons will be on an even keel. Idk what even keel means...hold.
Beans: Keel? It's something on a boat, we can get Jess to ask her hubby what it is. I am still contemplating one more purchase of ATL gear, in hopes it becomes a 'two negatives = a positive' kind of thing.
Ash: Hmm, I checked. More level playing field, I should say. Ooh a hoodie?! Speaking of hoodies, it's about time to pull out my Dark Jones one.
Beans: Do they make them to where the hoodie part faces the opposite direction?
Ash: Course, just flip it around.
Beans: OK, thanks for the tip.
Ash: I'm over this game convo. We’re awesome, we know it, well ‘cept on D, f*** you, defense. I miss Kroy.
Beans: Yeah, I am over it. You wanna get a drink? I know it's like 9am but still. Falcons win next week by 10.
Ash: Do I want to get a drink? Ha.
Ash: We win by 24.
Beans: You seeing unicorns, too?
Ash: All of the time, but this is just fact. I’m a realist, yo.
Beans: I want my team back, Ash. It all begins next week. Speaking of realistness.
Ash: Indeed.*softly sings I'm a believer to Beans* *though kumbaya is more appropriate*
Ash: Hey! Do you watch Sleepy Hollow?
Beans: No, when was it on?
Ash: Oh, start. Mondays on fox.
Beans: I had to play in the freezing cold last night. Private party for some teachers.
Ash: at the beach?
Beans: No, at a house that has a farm and a buttload of land. Set up outside and froze.
Ash: Mr. Freeze, I see.
Beans: I was amazed how well my fingers could move even when I couldn't feel them.
Ash: Heh, skillz.
Beans: Ha .
Ash: I need to take a vacation with kat...and jess and sid and jot and stoney and teach and nyce and, you get the picture, and we all need to sit on a beach in Oct (in chairs cause mama no like the beach and doesn’t sit in sand) and watch you play.
Beans: I think I need to get one of those hats that can hold a couple of drinks on it.
Ash: You sure do.
Beans: If I go I ain't coming back.
We’re getting worse at this…lol. Go Falcons! Next up, Seattle…Oh Lord. Here at 1pm EST.
