Dear Philadelphia Eagles fans: Miami wants you to win the Super Bowl. Really.

We never thought it would come to this, Philadelphia Eagles fans. Granted, as Miami Dolphins fans, we had other things to worry about this season. Soul crushing injuries. Players disappearing on road trips. Cocaine-snorting coaches who send videotapes to strippers. Jay Cutler. Did I mention Jay Cutler? But here it is: We are cheering for you … Continue reading "Dear Philadelphia Eagles fans: Miami wants you to win the Super Bowl. Really."

My New Dream Girl

Well it has been a while since I posted. I guess after finding out my dream girl was having a baby by another guy I just wasn’t in the mood to post. But I’m back folks! So I have a new dream girl. It is a bit of a long story so sit back,pour a cup of coffee and relax. So I have been stalking the Facebook page of the bar I use to work at-ya know how a single guys does when he has no life. I saw some pictures of a beautiful girl that bartends there. Blond hair,beautiful smile…just perfect. Of course I figured I would never have a chance with her-specially since she is about 20 years younger. But a guy can dream right? So a couple days ago I was looking around seekingarrangements to see if anyone new had signed up and who do I see? Yep that girl! We will call her…Tanya…So I figured hey send her a message who knows what might happen. She sent me a message back and we sent a few more messages back and forth. I gave her my number and SURPRISE she sends me a text! So we have been talking for a couple days now. She even says she likes older guys and not the young military guys that come into the bar where she works. We are planning on meeting this week. So we will see what happens…I have my fingers crossed and won’t be surprised if she disappears before we actually meet….but I might just actually have found my future wife-or she may just “ghost” on me like so many flakey girls do. Stay tuned..maybe the Single Guy won’t be single much longer!
