Andrew Luck is the New Tim Tebow

I do not like Tim Tebow. Yes yes yes, ok. He went to Florida and I tend to hold a grudge against anyone who went to Florida. Yes, that is correct.

BUT...

I can't stand when girls, women, grandmothers all just swoon over him. When they blindly cheer for Tebow, convinced he is the best football player to ever live. When asked to name two current NFL football players, they name Tebow twice. The kid doesn't even play football! 27 years old, and not employed by a single football team. "Ohhh but he is a good Christian virgin who can't drive. What a wonderful young man. He is my favorite player in the NFL!" Ok but, he isn't in the NFL. He is not a football player. You just like him because he is a "fine young man... blah blah blah" but let's get this straight, he is not, and I repeat, not, a football player. 

So do I have your attention now, you Tebow lovers of the world?? I want you to meet Andrew Luck. Get this, he actually is an actively employed NFL football player. But wait, there's more. Not only is Andrew Luck gainfully employed by the National Football League, he is a fine young man too! *Swooooooon*

Here is why Andrew Luck is the new Tim Tebow. Aside from the obvious fact that Luck is, you know, an actual quarterback. 

#1 He doesn't smack talk with his opponents. 
He pays them compliments instead. He is notorious for congratulating and complimenting the defenseman who sacks him. Luck will say to the other team's player, "What a hit!" or "Hey, great work man!

In a game earlier in the year against New England, their pass rusher Rob Ninkovich was interviewed after the game and was totally baffled. Luck paid him a compliment after a sack, and Ninkovich said he has absolutely no idea what to say to that. So apparently he replied with, "Uh... thanks for accepting that hit?"
In a league where trash talk and getting in your opponents head's is prevalent and expected, Luck is honestly just paying genuine compliments. It is driving players nuts... they want to know why he isn't mad! 
I find this hilarious, but if you are a former Tebow abuser, you should find it, "awwwwwwww so sweet!"

#2 He still has a flip phone
He is filthy stinking rich and still uses a flip phone... what a fine young man... "awwwwwww". He said he decided to spend his money on a ping pong table rather than a new phone. Hah!

#3 He graduated with a degree in architecture
The kid is smart. Very smart. He didn't take some junk major like most athletes! Andrew Luck majored in architecture. His plan was to build stadiums, stadiums made of environmentally friendly materials. But that whole wildly successful NFL dream panned out instead!   
#4 He is still with his college sweetheart

The gymnastic team's captain he met while attending Stanford, and she is of course totes adorbs. They were both architecture majors and he would attend her gymnastic competitions, well so long as it didn't interfere with football of course!  
#5 He loves to ride his bike around Indy
With his girlfriend.... "awwwwwww"
#6 He read AND saw the movie, "The Fault In our Stars"
"awwwwwwww"
#7 He is heavily involved in Children's Charities
Like play 60 encouraging kids to get out and play for 60 minutes a day. "Aaaaawwwwww"
And for those of you curious as to my timing of this post (Cowboys have an incredibly huge matchup against Andrew Luck and the Colts this Sunday) I'm taking the Andrew Luck approach here and paying compliments to the opposing team. If it works for Andrew Luck, it should work for me, right?

I absolutely love it when bloggers offer to make a drinking game for us. Today I've got my girl Tracey from Just a Trace taking over with an online dating drinking game. One of my favorite guilty pleasures is following Tinder Nightmares on Instagram, so this drinking game is right up my alley! Soooooo take it away girlfriend! 
 
Hi, I'm Tracey and I blog over at Just a Trace

Today, I'm taking over Sarah's blog and bringing you a drinking game that is sure to get you hammered faster than you can say, "I like long walks on the beach." As a former serial online dater (heck, I have enough bad dates to warrant a weekly online dating series on my blog), I noticed the same patterns on online dating over and over. Sometimes this made me laugh and sometimes this made me want to smack my head against the wall! So if you're going to navigate through the random world of online dating, you might as well be drunk!


// Take 1 Drink //

- You stumble across a guy with a shirtless photo

- His profile contains a mirror selfie

- He lists his employment status as "self-employed," but you later find out this actually means unemployed

- His interests include "craft beer"

- He opens his first message to you with, "I bet every guy tells you this but..."

- His profile contains a picture where he has cropped out his ex

// Take 2 Drinks //

- Your discover he works in your office

- He is one of your exes

- He is married and looking for an open relationship

- There are two or more spelling mistakes in his profile description

- His profile contains a shirtless, mirror selfie

// Get Hammered //

- He immediately asks for sex

- He invites you to partake in a weird fetish or lifestyle

- He declares that you are the one without having met you

How many drinks did you have?

The Best Songs of 2014 // The Worst Songs of 2014

I actually arrange my Spotify playlists by month, and each month I create a new playlist. Last year, for Helene's linkup I picked the best and worst country songs of the year. This year though, I thought I would just pick one song from each month's playlist that I still love, and one that if I hear one more time I might hurt someone. Why I ever put some of these songs on my playlist, the world may never know! 



:::Best::: 
Talk Dirty to Me // Jason Derulo
Jason Derulo is hit or miss for me. But this song, yup still dig it today!
Plus, 2 Chaaaaaiiiiiiinz!

:::Worst:::
Story of My Life // One Direction 
Story of My Life by One Direction on Grooveshark
This was my jam when it first came out. I would basically scream this with all the windows up for fear of being judged. There is a chance I even facebook declared my love for this song. Then I heard it 4 million times and I have since moved on.

:::Best:::
Anything // Heldey
I think this song was released in 2013 but that is neither here nor there. Need a song that will make you feel you can take on the world (or the treadmill...)? Well this this is your go to. 
 
:::Worst:::
Neon Lights // Demi Lovato
Neon Lights by Demi Lovato on Grooveshark
Loved it until I didn't. Sorry Demi, keep up the good work doe....
  
 :::Best:::
Take Me to Church // Hozier
Take Me To Church by Hozier on Grooveshark
I heard it last night... still jammed my face off to it. On an unrelated note, I'd like to see what this guy looks like with a hair cut. Thoughts on that anyone?
 
:::Worst:::
All of Me // John Legend
All of Me by John Legend on Grooveshark
Fun fact though, I once hung on his tour bus with my friend Magen
Cool story bro.

:::Best:::
Turn Down For What // Lil Jon, DJ Snake
Turn Down for What by Lil Jon & DJ Snake on Grooveshark
You think this wouldn't make the list? Psht.
Yeah right. Lil Jon is my bestie, remember

:::Worst:::
Rude // Magic!
Rude by Magic on Grooveshark
 Ears are bleeding 

:::Best:::
 Eric Church // Cold One
Cold One by Eric Church on Grooveshark
Let's switch it up, and hit my country lovers for the month of May. 
Eric Church is my man and he can do no wrong. 

:::Worst:::
Brad Paisley // River Bank
River Bank by Brad Paisley on Grooveshark
I don't like anything Brad Paisley does and I plead temporary insanity during May for adding this to my playlist. 

:::Best:::
 Miranda Mother Flipping Lambert
This is the month her CD Platinum was released, since I can't link all 16 songs, I'll link my favorite, Holding on To You! 
 
:::Worst:::
Can't Get Away From A Good Time // Logan Mize 
Can't Get Away from a Good Time by Logan Mize on Grooveshark
 Woof. 

:::Best:::
Shut Me Up // Old Dominion 
Can't Get Away from a Good Time by Logan Mize on Grooveshark
 If you are a country music fan, you'll love every song this band releases. They are song writers for some of your favorite artists too like Keith Urban, The Band Perry and Dierks Bentley. Plus, this song came out right around the time when I realized how I sounded talking about CB! 

:::Worst:::
Hangover // PSY, Snoop Dogg
Hangover (feat. Snoop Dogg) by PSY on Grooveshark
Yeah scream hangover at me 487 times, that'll help. 

:::Best::: 
Jubel //  Klingande
Jubel by 2014 Master Hit Machine on Grooveshark
 This is one of those songs that you just want to run through a field with a billowy, flowing scarf like a Free People model. 

:::Worst:::
All About That Bass // Meghan Trainor
I see no reason to link to this. You've heard it.
 Helene, it looks like a lot of our "worsts" are linking up! 

Ok now things are going to get tricky, the Rap game went HAM in September....
 
:::Best:::
Or Nah // Ty Dolla $ign
Ty Dolla Sign - Or Nah (Explicit) ft. Wiz Khalifa & DJ Mustard by Ty Dolla Sign on Grooveshark
I'm a big big rap fan. Sorry mom. 
A couple of months ago, Ty Dolla $ign was doing a show in Deep Ellum, and he came out of his tour bus right as CB and I were walking by. 
He asked us where the courthouse was.... and we said we didn't know!! 
*CUE THE ONE DIRECTION LITTLE GIRL SQUEAAAAL!*
 
:::Worst:::
Cool Kids // Echosmith
Cool Kids by Echosmith on Grooveshark
If you wanna be like the cool kids then just do it good god almighty.

:::Best:::
0 to 100 // Drake
0 To 100 / The Catch Up by Drake on Grooveshark
Real Quick. Real Quick. 
Drake is my Miranda Lambert of Rap, he can do no wrong.

:::Worst:::
A Sky Full of Stars // Coldplay
A Sky Full Of Stars by Cold Play on Grooveshark
I'm sorry I've never gotten into Coldplay. 
Nor have I ever liked Dave Matthews Band. Go ahead and get angry, I can take it.
 
:::Best:::
No Flex Zone // Rae Sremmurd
Ok but, they know better.
They. Know. Better.

:::Worst::: Maps // Marron 5
But that way he sings you though....
Youuuuuu-ewww
Youuu-ewwWW.
Youuuu-ewwWWWW

:::Best:::
I Don't F With You // Big Sean
(again, sorry mom)
I Don't F*ck With You feat. E-40 by Big Sean on Grooveshark
I don't pick the titles here mom, I'm really sorry. 
I just enjoy a good jingle, ipso facto, this song made my list
 
:::Worst:::
Chandelier // Sia
Chandelier by Sia on Grooveshark
I think my issue with this song is that I get excited when it comes on, because I think it is a song I like, then I listen to 3/4ths of the song only to realize it is the worst song ever made.

--

Ok too harsh? Do you never want to party with me now? 
Orrrrrrrr... can you not wait to party with me now?

Tell me how it is, I can take it! 
(unless you have something negative to say about Miranda in which case go away)



Linking up with Helene!
