Some advice on how not to win converts
It's one thing to stand on a street corner and try to hand people religious literature. Or to preach about Jesus using a mic and amp that can be heard from four blocks away. These things, both of which I see on a regular basis near my office, are annoying and intrusive at best, offensive at worst, and, in my completely baseless opinion, probably not very effective.
But if you really want to perform an exercise in futility? Shout Bible verses at people in the middle of a city that is most decidedly NOT Pittsburgh, while wearing a fucking STEELERS JERSEY.
Speaking of football, tickets around these parts are not the easiest things to get (at least, if you don't have, or aren't willing to spend, obscene amounts of money). The few tickets that do get sold to the public sell out within minutes of going on sale. So I am quite pleased to report that, through the efforts of a small army of family members this morning, we were able to get tickets to two games. Granted, they're standing room only, but still, a ticket's a ticket. Envy me.*
*Okay, fine, I do realize that, with the exception of only one person who may be reading this, you not only are not a fan my team, you probably dislike my team quite emphatically. And I don't think anyone reading this (that I know of) is a fan of either of the teams they're playing. So you probably don't envy me. But still, FOOTBALL tickets. Woohooooo!
