its just about 6:30 on a Saturday night, and I am sitting alone in a hotel suite in Kelowna with the heat cranked up in a desperate attempt to dry my lucky jeans before leaving for a 6am flight back to my hometown to spend some quality time with my family back East.
I’ve spent the last few days here in Beautiful British Colombia (thats what the licence plates here say, true story) spending some time on a ski hill. not that i skied or anything i sat on a friends couch and ate caramel corn and watched Netflicks. It was awesome! I didn’t HAVE to do anything!! despite a few mild hiccups at the beginning of the trip its been great here in BC. It was amazing to see my friends and get some QT with them, and some time to myself.
During my lazy days I had the chance to catch up on a few tv shows that i have been sorely negligent at keeping up with, the FX sleeper hit ‘The League’ mainly.
The League is rapidly becoming one of my new favourite shows, in fact i just added it to my favourite TV shows on Facebook. I’m that into it right now, its this amazing show about 6 friends who are in a fantasy football league together. As a woman I love it because the men in it are totally my type (with the slight exception of the character of Ruxin) and as a sports fan I love it as well. The 5 main characters are all people I have had in my life at some point,
Pete- The Boyishly Charming Silver Tounge Devil…. Dean is my Pete, hes charming but sneaky as all get out. Both share a distaste for imported fruity beers. Also, the comedic genius Mark Duplass plays Pete he is magic
Kevin- The Loveable Guy that is always THIS close to getting what he wants…. my roommate Alan is the Kevin. Actually Alan is the one who got me started on the League.
Ruxin- The Cunning One- this goes to Nick one of my other roommates. I cant even begin to describe how similar they are
Andre- The Mercilesly Mocked One- This goes to another roommate, JP. He’s a wanna be thug who wears more Ed Hardy and Bench then any person who isnt in a cheap sorority should.
Taco- The Platypus/Frittata/Stoner/Unsung Genius- Taco is hands down my favorite character on the show. He gave us the term ‘Eskimo Brother’ and ‘Vaginal Hubris’. this is a tough one. Ive known many a Taco’s in my day, so many that i cant even pin point one kick ass name to give you. But I will say this, the Taco is the best part of any group of friends
Jenny- The Girl Who Knows her Sports– Jenny is one of my TV idols, she’s a smart ass who knows her sports and isnt afraid to say or do what she wants. Shes awesome.
