Happy International Talk Like a Pirate Day, Matey

So the Bills are 2-0, the Cuse is moving to the ACC and today is International Talk Like a Pirate Day.  All is good in the world.

So in that order, let's discuss the Twilight Zone in which I live in. Is it ironic that the Bills came back to beat a team named the Raiders, on the eve of Int'l Talk Like a Pirate Day? It's harrrrrrd not to believe it. Seriously, that was one of the most exciting football games I've ever attended. The Ralph was jumping like we were back in the late 80s/early 90s. Let's hope the magic continues. The Evil Empire is up next. I think the Space Gal injured herself in a celebration of the next to last touchdown by Stevie Johnson, it's rough being a NFL spectator.

As for the Cuse going to the ACC...I'm actually pretty excited about it. The basketball will be spectacular and gives me even more reason to hate Duke. The lacrosse league is going to be pretty awesome too with Duke, UNC, Virginia and Maryland competing with the Orange on an annual basis. The Big East wasn't a very strong football conference, so that appears to be more of a lateral move, although Miami and Florida State can still bring it.

As far as my favorite holiday...I'll toss a few jokes out there as I do every year on this date, courtesy of the twitter account @piratejokes.

Q: Where do pirates eat fast food?
A: Arrrrrrrrrby's

Q: What do you call a good looking priate girl?
A: Aye Candy

Q: What did Black Beard say to his men before they got on the ship?
A: Let's get on the ship, men! 
(that's my favorite one this year)

Q: Why didn't the pirate cross the road?
A: Because it was made of tarrrr.

Ok, that's enough.

If you're playing some pirate hunch bets today...make sure you consider these:
