Last night was bitter sweet. The sweet – our kickball team walked away with a win (I knew all we needed was our official t-shirts – see previous post) followed by some celebration drinks, flip cup, and karaoke at the bar Samba in Somerville.
The bitter – while we were consumed in kickball victory bliss, David Archuleta was defeated by rocker David Cook on American Idol. Don’t get me wrong “big” David has talent, but I was rooting for Archie, hands down. From the beginning I knew “little” David was going to make it to the final – but I guess he just didn’t have the “right stuff” (Citation: New Kids on the Block).
I guess I can’t really complain about the outcome, though, since I never vote. On the flipside, you can look at the loss as a positive – being an American Idol winner doesn’t guarantee success. Many AI “losers” have had great careers thus far – ahem, Chris Daughtry.
Now, Fox, bring on So You Think You Can Dance! It starts tonight – right now actually, so Elicia Buzz OUT!
(Note to Ryan Seacrest – it was a wise decision to die your hair back to a somewhat normal color and please don’t ever go back to saying “Seacrest Out” – it was a dark dark time in American Idol history.)
