Oh my God. My Bally was being wired for ... um, Dish Network, I think. Christ, I just got home. You'd think I could remember what the dude's shirt said. Stupid booze ruining my brain cells.
Anyway, I am totes excited, y'all. This might mean that I won't be subject to the regular network TV horribleness that makes me want to vomit. I say "might" because clearly, people suck and plenty of them actually enjoy that excrement. Maybe, just maybe, I'll be able to watch the Wolves and Twins. And Monday Night Football! Or something other than The View and Montell when I'm there during the day. Ach! Be still my beating heart.
I've been wondering for years why they don't have cable or something. The Bloomington Bally has it. The Y in Mankato had cable. I'm far more prone to stay on a machine longer if I'm watching a game or something. I wonder if there will be a learning curve for some of these gym douches when it comes to channel-changing etiquette. At the Y, I would ask everyone who seemed like they could see the TV if I could switch it to the Twins game or the Wolves game or whatever. People were generally really good about it, but there was always the odd fuckstain who would just walk right the fuck up and change the TV without so much as a look to see if anyone was watching whatever was on. And you know they always turned it to something like Fear Factor. Dicks.
As long as I'm on the subject of the gym, I've been wondering about something. There are lots of older people at the gym during the day and I see many of them listening to iPods. What the hell do you think old people listen to on their iPods? How did they get to be so technologically savvy? I can't imagine my mom or dad using one, or God forbid, my grandparents. I'm so fucking curious about this.
