The Distaste Of Eating Crow
There is a reason that I never took up gambling…I never win. Such was the case yesterday, when I lost a bet that I was foolish enough to make with Roy Hobbson; the outrageously funny writer of The Silent Pagoda.
The bet was simple enough. I had been convinced, along with most people here in the Music City, that the Tennessee Titans were going to continue their winning ways and ruin the Colts undefeated season. Roy thought otherwise. The stakes? Whoever won, got to take over the other’s blog for a day.
You will not find two IndyCar blogs that are less alike than Oilpressure.com and The Silent Pagoda. While Oilpressure.com takes a semi-serious tone when giving commentary about anything IndyCar both past and present; The Silent Pagoda takes a very offbeat and somewhat quirky approach examining anything even vaguely related to IndyCar. Although I would never let him know it, I really consider his sense of humor to be borderline genius.
Unfortunately, the Titans laid an egg in a very uninspired effort. Therefore, throughout the day today, this site will be under siege by the evil genius of Roy Hobbson. I have no idea what will be showing up here today or how often, nor do I take any responsibility for any of the comments he posts.
I only hope there will still be something left resembling this site when Roy is done having his way with it. I also pray that there will still be some readers left when I take the site back for Wednesday’s article. Don’t blame me – blame the Titans.
