Well Superbowl 39 is behind us and I donít have to worry about another one for at least another year. This was easily the hardest one I've done but I think maybe my best. If you haven't seen it yet I've posted excerpts on my TV page so you can judge for yourself. I have to say not only are the Patriots the best football team of this decade but they are also the greatest group of guys. Before I talk about that though can I just ask "Who the hell still smokes?"
Smokers. Yucky, smelly, disgusting smokers!
Has anyone not figured out yet that it's the most disgusting habit in the history of mankind? Not only is it the most miserable thing you can do to your body but don't you realize other people have to smell your stinky smoke body when they're sitting next to you on a plane. I guess, as you can tell, I'm writing this on a plane sitting next to the most stinky smoker body I've had to smell in a long time. I feel like I'm going to puke on him, which would actually be an improvement over that smoker smell! I think everyone on the plane would thank me and be like, "That's a fine smelling vomit, son. You're a hero!" As I've written before traveling really is a nightmare. If it's not some guy talking loud on his cellphone then it's some guy reeking of that horrible cigarette smell. I really can't figure out why cigarettes are even for sale? Why would anyone buy a product that not only kills you but makes you smell worse than vomit! I would never even kiss a smoker! Don't get me wrong, I would have sex with them doggy style, but no kissing, so if a hot smoker is out there reading this don't give up hope, just send me a picture of your ass. Now, back to the Patriots. Where do I begin, as I was saying, the Patriots are really the coolest guys in the world. They went so far out of their way to help me out and do all the goofy things I asked them to do. Then to actually celebrate with me minutes after their win makes them just amazing people. The Eagles players were okay to me but the Patriots actually became my friends.
Playing twister with Linebacker Jeff Chatham.
Just like last year they did everything I asked them, put on silly hats, danced with me, played Twister, you name it they did it for me. One of the coolest thing about this media day was I was actually considered a celebrity. All the newspapers were asking if they could interview me and I actually had to say No because I had limited time with the players. I felt so cool. Even at one of those Superbowl parties, (I hate parties-lots of smokers) the local news anchorwoman asked to interview me. Then she proceeded to ask me a bunch of inane questions about if I like Jacksonville. That kind of caught me off guard because number one, who cares and number two I thought it kind of blew. It's really just one long strip mall. The thing that sucks is I finally get this cool annual Superbowl gig and besides San Diego in 2003 the locations have been pretty shitty. Last year was Houston, which the people were really nice but even they admitted that all Houston was is just a bunch of highways that each end at a Mexican restaurant. It kind of reminded me of New Jersey without the smell. Next years is going to be worse because it's actually in Detroit.
Wide Reciever Bethel Johnson. My bud!
Don't get me wrong I love Detroit, it's got overwhelming personality. Home to Kid Rock, Eminem and my favorite commentator Debbie Schlussel who rocks, and writes the greatest articles on women's basketball and why it sucks I also have a lot of fans there who come see me at the Comedy Castle so Detroit is one of my favorite towns. The problem is that the Superbowl is in January and I don't have to tell you that in January Detroit is going to be 40 below zero! Which begs the question: What in god's name were they thinking? Super Bowl week is supposed to be about partying and babes in bikinis, not freezing your ass off and girls in snowsuits. The year after that it's Miami so I'm hoping I can hang on till then because that would rock. I better start learning to speak Spanish now!

The other cool thing about being in Jacksonville for the Superbowl was Big Mac Day seven with Bluefish.
On the field

For those of you who are just starting to read my journals, Bluefish is my best friend since I was 10 who somehow stayed friends with me even though I tried to sleep with his girlfriend in the ninth grade. He admits it's paid off though since this was the third Superbowl in a row he got to actually be on the field. So anyway, Big Mac day is a tradition we have where we both agreed 7 years ago to only eat one Big Mac a year (since we love them this is not easy to do) Why we decided it I don't think either of us remember,
Big Mac Day #7. Your eyes do not deceive you, we are..behind the counter!
I think it's so that when we finally get the mac it's like overwhelming happiness. So this year we had Jacksonville Big Mac day. This one was particularly successful because the McDonalds girl let us go behind the counter which is rare so whenever we get behind there we consider it a success. She was really cute too so I'm hoping to start a new tradition called "big mac girl day". Anyway, if things go according to plan Big Mac Day 8 should be in Detroit so be sure to tune in next year to see if we get behind the counter.

Okay, not much else to report except that my CD is selling so good it's scary. Everything is just gravy now. All I ever wanted to do was make back my money and I just did that in less then a year so I'm feeling pretty good about myself. I only put one out because people kept writing me asking for one and I just wanted to do it for my fans but now it's really taken off. I don't want to brag but apparently it's the number one requested comedy CD on XM radio. Man does it pay to act retarded!
Attention goofy looking couples. Win a copy of "Miniskirts and Muffins". If you're a perfect looking couple you'll have to buy a copy for only $12.99.
Since I made back my money now I think I want to do fun stuff. I know, lets do a giveaway! I've always wanted to do one of those. I even have a great idea for one. Since I always have couples writing me I'll do a couples giveaway. Here's the rules, one free CD to the goofiest couple who sends me a picture. God, that is such a cool idea. I need a time limit too so we'll say it's from now till May 1st. That's 2 months of pictures to choose from. So e-mail your photos to me and I'll choose the winners and post the pictures in my June journal. Good luck. Okay, I have 3 more hours with smelly cigarette guy next to me. Maybe if I'm lucky his lungs will give out and they'll have to store him in the overhead compartment!
