Today was supposed to be a wonderful day of death and destruction on the field of battle: Paintball
The youth from our church were all geared up and ready to go. Until I had the displeasure of being the bearer of bad news to DJ, Matt and Bob.
Unfortunately, it was postponed due to the weather.
You can tell by the look on Julian's face that there was not much joy to be found here today. You'd think that a little bit of rain would make things more interesting. But Buddy, the owner/operator of the paintball field, decided that the conditions were not conducive to everyone's safety. And safety comes first with Buddy.
And I was so looking forward to seeing the new Boondock Saints
and P.Roger) in action.
So, as an alternative, we opted to go see a movie at the Lowes Theater below.
We went to see The Last Legion. It was an OK movie. I'm not gonna review it here, but I will say that you're probably better off renting it when it comes out on DVD. What I will talk about is the commercials that were on before the previews.
That's right folks, commercials. I knew about the various advertisments that play on the screen prior to the start of the movie. But actual commercials?
I guess I can't complain too much. Capitalism at work, right? But it also set the stage for what turned out to be a perfectly timed bit of humor.
Fruit of the Loom had a commercial featuring country singer, Vince Gil singing this really touching song with the Fruit of the Loom Guys, about how important his dad was in his life. It was really pretty good, for a country flavored commercial. And for some odd reason, when the commercial was done, the entire audience was silent. Then, out of the darkness, without a moment's hesitation, Bob yells out "I love you, Dad!"
What else can I say? He's my son.
