Does the Rally Kitty want a Belly Rub?
It’s amazing how low a man will sink to satisfy his insatiable appetite for sports. Fred, a huge San Antonio Spurs fan, greatly misses watching NBA games on television. Luckily, he’s able to chat on the Spurs forum; however, he misses out on a lot of the action because the games are usually televised while he’s sleeping. The morning after game day, a sleepy-eyed Fred stumbles to the computer to check the scores. Sadly, he continues to put the same amount of pressure on Bilbo aka “The Rally Kitty”. The Rally Kitty, however, does benefit from the difference in time zone. Instead of being subjected to queries of “Are the Spurs going to win Rally Kitty?”, “Isn’t papa nice to you Rally Kitty?” and “Do you want your fetish Rally Kitty?” (Don’t even ask about this last one) for an entire basketball game, now he only has to hear them for about 15 minutes before Fred goes to bed. What scares me though is that Fred has gotten really into watching darts, yes, darts and snooker – what the non-obsessed refer to as pool. Every so often, he'll exclaim with glee over a bulls-eye or a pocket-shot while I sit in astonishment. So next time you’re flipping through the channels and you ask yourself “Who in the world watches this?” Now you know: Frederic R-----y, Paris, France.
