Sleep Deprivation Can Catch Up to You

So the three of you that actually visit this site may be wondering, "What the deal?" I mean, surely you'd expect a short rant about how the Sixers have no business losing to the Timberwolves. And you would be absolutely correct.

Without question, the Sixers should be killed for this loss. If they want to be a good team, they better start acting like it. But you see, I don't have much to say on the topic because for the past, oh, I don't know, since the Phillies won the World Series really, I haven't gotten much sleep. At all. So last night, when I returned from work, I fell asleep. However, I was smart enough to set my phone alarm for 8 p.m. to wake up in time for the game. And I did, for about 15 minutes, in which time the Sixers built up a 21-10 lead or something.

Next thing I knew, it was well past 9:30 and the Sixers were losing at halftime. Then I went downstairs and ate some ridiculous thing called basketball pizza, watched "Entourage" with my roommates, and then watched the final 30 seconds of the Sixers, seeing the final score.

So the moral of the story is, the Sixers kind of stink right now, but my lack of sleep combined with another rare day of a lot of work has prevented me from analyzing and demeaning the 76ers—which is really a shame. Because I really like demeaning successful athletes that make way more money than I'll ever make, have much better lives and could give two shits about what I have to say.


  1. Yeah sure, "basketball pizza"...everybody knows you and the housemates just play the old hucklebuck after every sixers game.
