The kicks, you can blame the field, you can blame the weather, you can blame whatever but you can’t.

–Jeff Reed talking about his missed field goals.

That sounds like the lyrics to a country song, doesn’t it?

You can blame the rain.
You can blame the truck.
You can blame the dog.
You can blame your luck.
But you can’t.

    Next time I make a mistake at work I’m totally saying that. Management will be so confused they’ll forget what was even going on, and next thing they know they’ll have actually given me a raise.

    Because no one would ever expect something like that to come out of someone who (until recently anyway) looks like that…

    I long to be able to express utter joy with one side of my face and complete confusion with the other. It must require syphilitic synapses.

    @ Baba Wawa There was a Jamie Foxx Song called Blame It (on the Alcohol) that could also be applicable for Skippy : )

    Who knew Skippy talks in haiku?

    You can blame the field.
    The weather, the whatever.
    But you can’t. The kicks.
