I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night
He's gotta be strong
And he's gotta be fast
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light
He's gotta be sure
And it's gotta be soon
And he's gotta be larger than life
Let it be known, Chad-Esteban Johnson-Ochocinco is my new hero. Not only did he kick the winning field goal last night against the dreaded Patriots (as a wide receiver, no less), but he is one of the funniest people going right now.
This is how he said sooth yesterday, after the victorious boot:
“This year I’m gonna be myself. But I’m gonna be very productive at the same time. It’s gonna be hilarious.”
This is my new mantra for the upcoming academic year. I remember someone once saying something wise about spoonfuls of sugar and medicine. I think we should all adopt this as a goal. Being productive, honest to ourselves, and hilarious.
has a b.a. from the university of notre dame and a ph.d. in art history from the university of delaware. for those reasons, he suffers nearly every autumnal saturday, but takes solace in getting wacco for flacco. he is currently assistant professor of art history and art criticism at the memphis college of art.
