I admit that I would probably would not have written this post if the Bengals won this weekend. But given the fact that they lost, and that Shayne was one of the many reasons they lost today, I could not hold back.
What you see to the left is a customer loyalty card from my favorite establishment in Madeira. What you see next to that is, kid you not, a two day old autograph from WDR's favorite soccer player.
The story goes as such:
I found myself shipping a package at FedEx a couple days ago, right next to Kicker Red. When he went to leave the store I could not help but ask for his autograph. The kicker of this whole situation (see what I did there?) was the fact that the only piece of paper I had was this Coffee Please loyalty card for him to sign. The truth is, it was an awkward situation that was enhanced by my asking of questions such as " uh excuse me, are you Shayne Graham?" and "can I have your signatu.. I mean autograph?"
But that's not the point. The point is that right now I am stuck. I don't know whether to fulfill my card and enjoy a delicious beverage of my choice, free of charge, or to hang on to this autograph that just pisses me off every time I look at it. Choice number one sounds like a winner to me right now. But what would you do, loyal reader, if you had the same dilemma? I need some help here...
