11 Times The Gilmore Girls Understood Attending A Sporting Event

"Yeah, of course I'll get bored, but that's when the "South Park" impressions kick in." -Lorelai Gilmore

11 Times The Gilmore Girls Understood Attending A Sporting Event

Unpopular opinion: I think watching sports is dreadfully boring.

If you're like me, you think that attending a sporting event (or even watching sports on TV) is dull and uninteresting. Baseball game? You'll find me staring at my food instead. Super Bowl? I'll be counting down the minutes to the halftime show and then I'm emotionally checked out afterwards. Badminton? Actually, that sounds fun to watch--and the sounds of the birdies hitting the racquets are oddly satisfying...

Who can I count on to share my views with? Well, there are two fictional women I can turn to to help tell explain my struggles of sports-boredom to the world: Lorelai and Rory Gilmore. Allow "Gilmore Girls"to guide you through my experiences of being dragged along to sporting events:

1. First, you find your seats in the stadium.

2. Then the game starts and you realize that you don't have a single clue about what's happening.

No matter how many times people try to explain to you how the sport works, you can never grasp it...

3. Suddenly you find yourself getting bored, but you have no one to talk to because everyone around you has their attention fixated on the game.

When you do try to talk to your homies, they nod and pretend to listen. You eventually catch on to the fact that their full attention is on the game.

4. Eventually, you find that you're getting hungry, so you squish past the people in the row of seats to venture off for some food!

5. But after waiting in a crazy long line at a concessions stand, you're immediately shocked by the outrageous prices for snacks and drinks!

$10 for french fries???

6. Of course, you cough up the money anyway and return to your seat, because you think that eating stadium food is the only interesting part of attending the game.

You might have even missed watching your team score a point while dipping your french fries in ketchup!

7. As the game DRAGS on and on, suddenly a song catches your ear! Maybe it's a stadium classic like "YMCA" by The Village People, or a hip-hop track like "Jump Around" by House of Pain--whatever the song, it suddenly gets you in the spirit!

8. Soon after, you watch the team you're rooting for score again, and you join everyone in on cheering for them!

9. The game ends! Maybe your team won...

10. ...Or maybe they lost...

11. Either way, you're EXHAUSTED as you leave the stadium! But you still have to save the last of your energy to beat the crowds and avoid traffic in the parking lot!

Go Go GO!

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
