#Rocktober

it’s hard,
so hard,
to be a fan, love a team.
i did it once,
and was rewarded. (2001)*
i did it again, and had
another payoff … after i thought the
fire had been mostly extinguished. (2009)**
then the fanaticism
(in its literal sense)
slowly trickled away,
laying mostly dormant, save a few
wondrous
terrible
tumultuous times of year.
something lit the fire again,
awoke the beast,
(pick your cliche)
i think last year,
(maybe ’07 if we’re being historically accurate)
but
this year
it’s different.
this year,
it’s changed –
i’ve changed –
and i’m not sure why.
and i don’t know if my heart
can take
the rollercoaster ride again.
but maybe I’ll go,
take my dramamine and hop back aboard,
for this,
(playoff) Sports,
is what can keep us young.

#Rocktober, 10.2.2018

* 2001 – Colorado Avalanche, Stanley Cup Champions.
** 2009, BU Hockey, NCAA Ice Hockey Champions.

Third Quarter Style: 2018

For whatever reason, I just didn’t curate many outfits over the past few months. Or I totally forgot to take pictures of them. Probably a little of the latter and most of the former. But when you spend most of your summer in a car driving around with lack of cell phone reception, there’s not much need for cute style.

Or maybe I do this wrong.
