At least I’m not Geremi Gonzalez

Hello Big Picture readers. Allow me to address you directly. I’m having a hard time right now. Ever since I experienced the ultimate high of all highs upon meeting Bobby Hebert, things haven’t been so great. The next day I got sick (I think it was food poisoning). Then my summer job tried to low ball me with a shitty salary. Then, as if things weren’t bad enough, some asshole broke the window in my car. For the second time.

See this is weird. I live in a pretty nice neighborhood. It’s near the university, full of students, and generally pretty safe. But for the second time in two months somebody smashed the very same window in my car — the right rear door window. What did they take, you ask. Nothing. The first time my digital camera was in the car. The second time a set of golf clubs. Not nice ones or anything, but still. Why do you smash a car window and not take anything? And should I count myself lucky that nothing was stolen or unlucky that someone thinks my car is a glass punching bag? The worst part? That very same window got broken last summer by a total fluke accident when a friend of mine tapped the window with an empty bottle.

So what does this have to do with sports? Well, nothing. But after this happened I was pretty upset, until I realized that when you put things in perspective, getting a broken window isn’t that bad. At least I wasn’t killed by lightning. So, condolences to the Gonzalez family. And remember kids, there’s more to life than car windows.

  1. Can’t you see??? This is clearly Lattimer from The Program’s doing. He must have made starting defense again.

  2. gmoney, you must be right. Or some meat head who plays for Cal must live near me. Maybe he graduated or something.

  3. Before I totally read this whole thing through I was ready to explode because of your subject line. My 1st thought was, how classless. A guy dies from being hit and you post a pic of lightning but the after reading this I understand why you did post that. I think Geremi was a pretty good pitcher. He was really nice too. I met him at Fenway Park. It’s a shame. Makes you realize how short life really is. I’m sorry you got your window smashed twice in 2 months which sucks. Too bad you couldn’t install a mini spy cam in your car lol just to nail the pricks who are doing that to ya!
