Eli 11.9 And The Punch LineWe were watching a Boston Bruins-New York Rangers playoff game last week.
In the pre-game, they showed fans walking into the stadium, and there was one guy wearing a Jaromir Jagr Boston Bruins jersey.
"Oh, that's great," I said.
"What?" Eli 11.9 asked.
"The Bruins traded for Jagr at the deadline, he probably won't play for them next season, and he hasn't scored a goal in the playoffs," I said. "But this guy ran out and spent $120 to buy his jersey."
"Money well spent, PLAYA!" Eli said, laughing.
For this next story, I need to explain that we have a non-word that's become a word. It's "festivate", and it's a combination of "festival" and "celebrate".
An acceptable variation is "festivation", in case you're wondering
Last Friday, we went to a local barbecue place, and in the same shopping center is a board game shop. On our way out after dinner, we passed a gaggle of guys from the board game shop standing outside, chatting and smoking.
"I know how they should describe this store," he said. He paused dramatically, then said: "Where nerds festivate!"
Which, if you think about it, is a good description of quite a few of us.
