He Stole My Line!

Tuned into the NFR tonight (after straightening myself out on the actual air time, one in the morning is a replay of round nine on ESPN2, round ten was at seven on ESPN) only to hear one of the announcers totally gank my Superbowl line.

Now, I admit, it could be a coincidence. It was, after all, a rather apt comparison.

But, I don't really buy the whole coincidence thing. Especially when not believing in coincidences means that I was quoted at the beginning of the most gut-wrenching, suspense filled night in professional rodeo.

Admit it, Announcer Guy! You stole my line! Own up to your theft and get me tickets for next year's NFR, and all shall be forgiven.

And, if you pay for my hotel too, I'll throw in a blog post on the psycho gate habits of barrel horses, and why Molly Powell flipped her right rein up over her horse's head for barrels two and three.

No, really, I've probably got about a thousand words just on the gate thing. Course, once I revise so that I'm not calling them some variation of psychotic in every other sentence it might be less, but it's total quality!

Haha which line did he steal?

Yeah, what one of your witicisms did he use w/o the express written permission of the creator?

The one about the NFR being the Superbowl, for ten nights straight.

I'm just being a smartass, I know there's no chance that I was the first to ever use that line. I highly doubt that the NFR announcer would have a reason to read my itty blog here, anyway.

It was just so wide open to rant about...

Like you said, you weren't the first to say that. It wouldn't surprise me who all does read your blog. Reason... no reason... Quien sabe?

"It was just so wide open to rant about..."

Yup. It seems to me it might be on a par with all-encompassing statements that draw fire.

Oh, BTW, when you were on blogtalk with Mark... how far back was it? three months ago?... I didn't get to listen that night for lack of speakers that worked. I did bookmark it though and just a few minutes ago, I finally listened. Doubtless, everyone's heard of "the mind's eye"... well, there's "the mind's ear" too. I've found that when you know an author's voice, you can hear it when you read their words. Or at least I can. It's tended to have a positive effect on the reading. I hope you don't mind my sayin' so... you have a nice voice.
