Continuing Dorkitude. It runs in the family.  
So most of you know that I'm a goober.  If you even give my journal entries even a cursory glance, it might hit you that "something's just not right about that Carrie girl."

Well, my husband's a bigger dork than I am.  He plays in a fantasy baseball league (Okay, I don't judge, being as I write non-canon HP fan fiction).  He actually WON the league last season.  But they get on their message board and talk smack about each others pretend teams, their prowess at drafting and so forth, giving each other a hard time as they trade players, etc.

Sort of like a condensed version of LJ...  guy style.  No offense to the two guys on my f-list. :)

Anyway, guys from all walks of life are in his league, and they're all friends.  There are doctors, lawyers, builders, people in construction, and one of them...  well, one of them is the head weatherman Chief Meterologist for one of the local television stations.

I don't know the whys and wherefores, if he lost a bet or what, but evidently this guy (who I won't name in case something like this might make him lose his job) has to say a different word ON AIR to be chosen by that weeks leading scorer in the FANTASY BASEBALL LEAGUE.  So far this season, the words have been SASQUATCH and LIGHTSABER.  I'm alternately horrified that he's putting his job in jeopardy and giddy with excitement to hear them.

And he's worked them into the weather forecast.  Rather masterfully, I might add.

This weeks word is BAMBOOZLE...  To be said tomorrow night on the 10 o' clock news.

I cannot WAIT.  I'm every bit as much of a dork as my darling husband. :D

Both Paul and I had a good chuckle over that. I can't wait to hear how he does it. But frankly, I'd like to know how he worked in the other two! :D

The first was something like, "A rainstorm sighting in the Panhandle is like seeing the Majestic Sasquatch... you blink and you miss it..."

And then the other one was something to do with an anecdote about his two sons, and he worked in how one of them beat the other with a lightsaber, which I'm SURE is patently NOT true, as his wife would not allow such nonsense in her home.

But seriously. BAMBOOZLE. You should see the message board that the guys have, and the suggestions for how he should use the words. NWS! (It's a CHURCH league! hahahahahahaha!

You made me night. You, Sharlene, and slitherhither. My life is now happy and complete.

That's hilarious! Darn it, the only TV personality I know has a local cable show on women's issues. I don't think she'd go for it.

Only men would think of that type of bet. LOL But I do think it's funny. Oh, I need to know who it is so I can watch and hear him say it. If it's ch. 10, I see them being okay with whatever he does. NBC- They'd laugh along with him. ABC-I agree they might not look kindly.

Yup. You guessed it. :) Shhhh. Don't tell!

Hilarious! I wish our weatherman was a little more entertaining ;)

their message board and talk smack about each others pretend teams, their prowess at drafting and so forth, giving each other a hard time as they trade players, etc.

Sounds just like the board my hubby frequents for our real life senior football league *g*

Dorks who live in glass houses can't throw tribbles, or something like that...

Dork love is the best love. ♥
