About a decade ago me and some of my friends opted to go to a drive in. However, this drive in was special. They'd allow you to show up early, grill, play games, etc. etc. I always brought a kickball because there was always enough kids in the area to get a really good game going. Sure enough, this time it was no different. There was at least a score of young kids, you throw in my cadre of 20 somethings and we had 30 people willing to play kickball.
Of course, though, you have to pick teams. Which means you have to designate two captains.
Two of my friends volunteered and thus began the "picking of the teams" where the captains pick what they deem to be the strongest and most athletic people to be on their team.
Sure enough Chad and Tom were chosen, obviously the most physically fit and so I thought I'd be in the second or third round draft.
Mike was picked over me, which was kind of odd. He was fatter than me and he didn't run.
Hey, why is Bill get picked over me!? He can't even run!
Then they started picking our female friends over me and I realized what was happening. The two captains had conspired to pick me dead last as a loving jobke. Everybody was having a good guffaw at the ole Captain's expense as little 8 year olds were picked before me. 7 year old girls and boys were excited to stand next to me because they were getting picked over me. And finally it came down to two.
Me, a 5'9" full grown and in-shape adult male.
And a 4 year old girl who couldn't have been more than 3 feet tall.
Sure enough the little girl was picked over me, her face brimming, and everybody had a good ole laugh.
Now, of course this was done out of loving jest by my friends. And if it made the little kids feel better about themselves not getting chosen dead last for kickball, fine. But then I read this.
It has nothing to do with kickball, but a damn good reason why I'm picking Christian males who blame themselves for their wives' cheating dead last for kickball. Also why I'm picking them dead last as a foxhole partner if the SHTF and I need real men and real leaders to survive. You TAKING THE BLAME for your wife cheating on you???? Are you kidding me? That's the reason your wife cheated on you, because you're a freaking pansy! And an related aside, could you maybe advertise a little louder to our enemies in other countries and around the world just how cowardly and weak half the men in this country are? How you'll all just roll over for anyone and anything?
Even more unbelievable, the cheating wife (and uber beta husband) set up a website explaining the whole ordeal for all of us to see. Seriously, you just can't make this stuff up. (warning, the hypocrisy will make your stomach churn).
If the congregation will now turn their hymnals to page 323 where we will sing "Onward Christian Rationalization Hamster."
