A Warped POV by A. Dacosta Brathway

September 12th, Monday... DAMN! The summer's over! Now what? The weather's changing and I need a plan. Maybe I'll put more time into watching sensible television? Maybe I will watch more football and basketball? I'll focus on the action more. Pay attention to the statistics. Maybe I'll pay more attention to who the players are? Maybe I'll go to more live games? I used to coach basketball... I might show up to see who's coaching what team now and reminisce about old times? Maybe the spirit of old rivalries will crop up and old scores will have to be settled? Maybe I'll get pissed off like I used to and start fights, only to have to be escorted out by security and question them about knowing who I am (was), which will fall on deaf ears because I haven't coached in 30 years and they won't know who the fuck I am, or was! Maybe I'll be hauled off to jail for being a public nuisances and create a criminal record that will follow me the rest of my life. (I'm 60 now!) Maybe I will set a bad example for the kids...! Maybe no one will want me around, like they did when I did coach?
Now that I really think about it, maybe I'll just stay home and watch games on television.
