“Kill me now, Jesus, I can’t go on”

I am, unashamedly, stealing Warren Kinsella’s recent post in its entirety (including the title):

Just at West 49. Buying gear for the kids.

Guy at cash sees my Replacements tee. “Hey, man, that was a great movie,” says he.

“What?” I say, horrified and amazed. Companion says I look like I want to kill. Kid stutters.

“The movie,” he squeaks. “You know, the football movie.”

“No, I don’t,” I hiss. “The Replacements were a band. A fucking great band. Perhaps the greatest band.”

Kid scoots away. Me, to no one in particular:

“I hate everyone.”

  1. And the Replacements were a far, far better band then Rush.

  2. Isn’t this just the reverse of the rush fainting couch, but for a band even fewer people enjoy? 🙂
