Rough day for the Solipsist. The high point was a two-hour nap. That's not self-pity: Naps are generally the best part of any day. Some comedian once noted that you know you're becoming an adult when you look forward to sleep.
Anyway, we woke up only to find our Jets losing to the Miami Dolphins. At least we didn't make a bet with ACOS this week. Regular readers will recall that, back in September, we made a bragging rights-type wager on the first Jets-Fish game of the season: The fan of the losing team had to post the logo of the winning team as his Facebook profile picture for a week, and each day's status update had to feature a lyric from a song about the winning team's hometown. The Jets won, and ACOS lived up to his end of the bargain.
We don't know if we would have honored the pact--not because we wouldn't want to. (We wouldn't, but that's beside the point.) Rather, because off the top of our head, we can only think of two songs with "Miami" in the title, and one of them is the theme from "Miami Vice." Not exactly a Cole-Porteresque trove of quotable lyrics, there.
Then again, we could have forced ACOS to find lyrics about East Rutherford, NJ, so in a sense he got off easy, too.
PS: We would like to extend a Solipsistic golf clap to the Chicago Bears. We REALLY appreciate your decision to start playing to your abilities today against the Patriots. What, you couldn't keep overachieiving for one more week?
