About Me

“All the people that were rooting me on to fail, at the end of the day they have to wake up tomorrow and have the same life they had before. They have the same personal problems they had to today. I’m going to continue to live the way I want to live…” 

23’sThoughts.com is a look into the views, rants and ramblings of a life long over-analyzer of sports and every day routine. My purpose, well I don’t really have one but if I had to lie and make one up, is to express my opinions and thoughts about sports, gaming and anything that comes up in current events. It’s really about sports, don’t worry there will be no preachy Fox News bullshit going on here. I’ll use video game images to simulate or re-create real life moments to avoid the fascism that is the stock image industry.

I am in no way unbiased but I am an independent thinker who formulates his own opinion and stands behind my words. I will rarely apologize for being honest, in fact rarely may be too frequent.  I think the no-bullshit approach is the only way to approach this level of creative writing, no games being played here. If I wanted someone to lie to me I would turn on the news or speak to any government official.  When it comes down to it, I don’t really care what anyone thinks about me, I’m comfortable in my own skin. I don’t have to be fake, I don’t have to be someone I am not. As Kurt Cobain said, “Dreaming of the person you want to be, is wasting the person you are.”

I’m the type of guy that stops the microwave with 1 second to go. I’m the type of guy that throws his controller when I lose. I’m the type of guy who hates to try to spell the word ‘definitely’. I’m the type of guy that won’t conform. I’m the type of guy who sticks to his beliefs as they’re what drive me. I always pick the worst line at the grocery store. I cannot stand co-workers who talk to themselves. I have a fear of the shark at the bottom of my pool. I’m upset that Skittles changed their green flavor from lime to green apple without telling anyone. I refuse to exercise my right to vote. I believe it’s rude to wear hats inside. I believe all Madden cover votes are completely rigged. I believe that 8-bit images are infinitely more impressive than HD images.

This is who I am.

One finger up and I’m out cuz you ain’t even worth two.
