**play in the background as you read**
With nothing but time on my hands from COVID-19 (I'm out of work; not infected) I am trying to do the right thing and use this time to my advantage, but like the Rag'n'Bone man; I'm only human. It's a fucking pandemic, bro. I'm sorry, but some days when I wake up I just wanna watch American Experience on PBS, okay?!?!
Sure, this is the opportunity of a lifetime; I have a legitimate excuse to dedicate all my time towards achieving employment with Barstool Sports. But it's not as easy as "okay you're home, get to work!"
If you have ever listened to stand up comedy in your time on this planet, you've probably come across a bit where the comedian talks about someone finding out they're a stand up. The premise is centered around how it's a job and being a comedian isn't as simple as just telling a joke at the drop of a hat. That it's unfair to expect them to be hilarious that second.
Obviously I could just write, write, write about everything that happens in a given day. I could've written about the Pats releasing Stephen Gostowski yesterday. In fact I tried to, but with the Barstool eyes actually somewhat on me; IMO it's about quality over quantity. I've blogged for four years. I've shown I can put together five paragraphs about a transaction. I could be wrong, but I don't think that's what's going to make or break me.
When KFC dropped this new series "Sports: Reimagined" yesterday a light bulb went off.
I immediately wanted to make my own. As a history/conspiracy guy this is right up my alley. I felt like this is an idea I could thrive with. PLUS KFC just said in his cameo to me Sunday how this is the time to make content; you never know what could happen. I figured since this is a series he wants other bloggers to be a part of that I'd make one to showcase my sports knowledge/talent/why Barstool should hire me. I started cutting video yesterday and brought up my idea to a group chat this morning. Here's a heavily redacted version of what went down.
As you can see sometimes my texts read like my blogs :/
KFC mentioned the series on CCK yesterday. He asked Carrabis what moment he thought KFC would do for the Mets and what he'd want to do with the Red Sox. While I am well aware I don't work for Barstool currently...that's the fucking end game with all the stuff I've been doing for the last four years! I figured if I could make a good version of their idea; building off it, trying to improve it...maybe that could help me???
This part makes me laugh; it did not at the time lol.
Then they realized I wasn't in the mood after leaving my keys in the door last night knowing I'm going to catch a beating when my roommate comes home.
I completely understand where my boys were coming from, I don't want to come off as a content thieve/unoriginal. They think 100% original content is the way to go. I don't disagree!!! I need to make more original content and plan to. But I'm a multitasker; I've always got multiple ideas and projects I'm working on! I don't know man, I don't see what the big deal is here. I think the Welker drop is a fascinating rabbit hole to dive down with the butterfly effect in creates in NFL history. Maybe I'm wrong here? Idk. I'm still going to make the video, but please LMK what you think!
