Hockey BDM moment
Tuesday, March 14, 2006

So, last night I had a hockey game. At one point I carried the puck in close and took a shot (it'd be cooler if I scored, but it just went off the side of the net.) Then a defense(wo)men on the other team pushed me from behind and I crashed into the goalie and knocked the net off its moorings.

The ref whistled the play dead to fix the net, and the center on the other team (who's a good friend) immediate came up and asked the goalie "Are you okay?"

So I turned around and said "Is she okay?"

No one got it.

At least yours was intetional. On my latest blog I taked about a coffee mu that I thought said "two by two, hands of blue". What it really said was "five foot two, eyes of bue". We are all hopeless.

Actually, I think there's just a nice correlation between Firefly fandom and philosophy. I have two fellow Browncoats in the phil department at my school, and whenever we meet up in the quad one of us always calls out:


People think we're nuts, but we're okay with that.

ChrisPV - Firefly and Aristotle, what could could be better? That's too funny!

Very funny. I have Firefly moments all the time, too, and it sucks when there's no one around to appreciate them!

I've tried to curb the 'verse talk some this past week cause I think I'm annoying my significant other.

I had a similar moment in a philosophy class once. We were discussing how Aristotle believed that all virtures must have a mean between excess and deficiency. As an example, the prof said that "A soldier who ran around on the battlefield, yelling and shooting at everybody, would probably have an excess of courage."

My sole thought was "They don't like it when you shoot at 'em. Worked that out myself."
