Happy Valentine’s Day!  My wife insists that this holiday is a ploy by BIG LOVE to make unattached people feel shitty.  I disagree, I think it’s a naked cash grab (jots down note for a movie script about a bank robber who pulls his jobs in the nude).  Either way, for the most part Valentine’s Day sucks.  But you know what doesn’t suck? Love. As a person, I’m cynical down to the core, but even someone as dark-hearted as me has figured out that life is better with a bit of love in it.  If there’s no person around who’s worth of your love, a pet will do just fine (reaches over and pets dog).  And they don’t even have to love you back (reaches over and pets cat, withdraws hand after being savagely bitten).  If you’ve got a grand romantic gesture planned for the holiday, I hope it goes swimmingly.  If you don’t, I hope the day passes as quickly as possible, and your hangover tomorrow isn’t too crippling.

So my 1st biased prediction is wrong. Great start.

For the uninitiated….the next goal is yuuuuuuge. A 2-1 loss would actually be a pretty good roal result for Barca. That means they get through with a 1-nil home win (or any 2-goal margin). But a 3-nil loss is an absolute disaster, that even mighty Barca likely is fucked beyond repair to recover from.

Its not like Barca has any firepower on its bench.

I bet the catalan taeks are caliente!!

I would love to hear the halftime taeks. Or what they are saying in Madrid.

Maybe the tide will change [clenches teeth] when I watch it on DVR.
Nah, I regret nothing. This was a needed hangout. Feliz Día de la Amistad, KH.

FC Barcelona turned into the Miami Dolphins so gradually, I didn’t even notice before today.

Good reminder one is in Murrika – there is exactly ONE teevee box in the bar on the match, and I am the only one watching it.

So then you are the most inteligent in the bar. Soon will come the women.

Best. Love song. Ever: Amor perdido (Lost Love). My favorite version, by Carmen Delia Dipiní at her blasé-est:

https://youtube.com/watch?v=ZTBwQFYRrgw

Clunky literal translation:

Lost love. If as they say / It’s true that you’re joyful without me. / Live joyously / May other lips bring you the fortune / that I did not give.

Today I’m convinced / That for you, you were never mine / nor I for you / Nor you for me… / It was all a game / Only a bet I put in and lost.

It was a game and I lost / That was my luck / And I pay because I play fair. / You live happier / That is your luck / what more can be said / by a troubador.

Live peacefully. / You don’t have to, when I pass / tell me goodbye. / I am not hurt / And, on my mother / I do not hate you / or have hard feelings.

On the contrary / Jointly with you I applaud / pleasure and love. / Long live pleasure. / Long live love. / Now I am free / Love who will love me / Long live love.

This is hands down my least favorite “holiday” or whatever the fuck it is.
I always used to piss my exes off when I refused to observe the “Hallmark holiday”.

Fun story: A few girlfriends back I had a break up with a girl I had been dating for a couple of years. I had bought her a Valentines Day card and after the break up I put the card, basically new, I hadn’t written anything on it yet, into the glove compartment of my car.

The following year I’m dating a new girl when I suddenly realized it was coming up on Valentine’s Day. Yep. She got the card that was in the glove compartment.

I’m romantic as fuck sometimes

That’s just being resourceful.

This reminded me of a certain football-watching musician we may be familiar with.
