Per a press release for a proposed documentary looking for some start-up money:
Scott Rubin, the former Editor in Chief of National Lampoon and a hopelessly obsessed life-long Buffalo Bills fan, hits the road in an attempt to quit football’s most notorious losing franchise. Will Rubin succumb to the preseason hype over recent free agent signing Mario Williams and thus risk losing his wife and family or find a way to kick his addiction to losing for good?
Along his journey, Rubin will pick up other fellow winning-challenged souls. Together they’ll seek answers to their curious cellar-dwelling fate, driving a perfect L across sports’ losing corridor: from Minnesota (Vikings) to Milwaukee (Brewers) to Chicago (Cubs) to Detroit (Lions) to Cleveland (Browns, Cavs, Indians) to Toronto (Maple Leafs) and finally to his hometown, the mecca of sports losing, Buffalo, NY (take your pick). If Rubin and his disciples can’t quit, he’ll find a way to break the curse that keeps their beloved teams from winning.
At least he's nice enough to include us.
Also: If you are going to be in the Lake Nokomis area Saturday morning, it is the big triathlon day. We are attempting our first triathlon, and we are still very much dreading the swimming portion. It's only 1/4 of a mile, but you'd be surprised at how that distance has played tricks with our mind lately. Seriously, for the past 24 hours, we've been eyeballing landmarks and wondering "is that 440 yards away?"
So it should be festive. Come cheer on Team Crocodile, the unofficial name of our crew.
