Top 5 Events From Last Weekend

| | Comments (0)

1. I met Melanie Silcott from The Real World: Philadelphia. Again, my life can be very random - my friend, Matt, has a sweet and friendly girlfriend named Tram-Anh (Tre), who is friends with Melanie. They met in Philadelphia, while Melanie was taping the Real World. Matt's 30th birthday party was in Philly last Saturday night at Mint. Melanie was there, and she was very nice to everyone. I really didn't want to bother her, so I did introduce myself and avoided being a uberdork by saying how much I watch the show. Suffice to say it was very surrealistic when you meet someone that you watch on TV every week. After we left Mint, then went to Denim, Melanie was more interested in hitting a pub, and peeled off from the group. I wish I went with her since I hate clubs. My huge regret is that I didn't bring my fucking digital camera and get any pictures of her. Plus I could have gotten pictures of...

2. Terrell Owens girlfriend. Actually that isn't 100% true. T.O. has the hots for one of Tre's friends in Philly who is a bartender, named Danielle (Dani). She is very good looking, and extremely nice. She is so hot that I didn't even bother trying to hit on her. Tre told me that she & Dani were invited to T.O.'s house to watch MNF a few weeks ago. Donnie McNabb was there, along with about 12 other guests. They said T.O.'s house is incredible: It has two full sized kitchens, one of them has a whirlpool in the middle of it. In his backyard he has a 10 foot grill - 10 feet! Is T.O. cooking a full cow on the grill? Anyhow, while Tre and Dani were sitting on a couch, Donovan McNabb was sitting there talking to them. Two other girls walk into the party, dressed to the nines, like they are going to a club - Tre and Dani are wearing jeans and thinking "Where did they think they were going to?". So the new girls introduce themselves to Tre, Dani, and Donnie who are all seated on the couchand Donovan McNabb says: "Hi, I'm Justin." The two glam girls, who have no idea that they are talking to Donovan McNabb saying "Hi Justin!" - no clue registering on their faces. McNabb, Tre, and Dani wait for the glam girls to walk away and the bust out laughing. Come on - you are going to T.O.'s house for MNF and you have NO IDEA who Donovan McNabb is?! Funny stuff. For the record, T.O. is NOT dating Dani - but the running joke with her friends is that she is "T.O.'s Girlfriend", because she was invited to his house for MNF.

3. It's nice to know people. After we left Mint, and headed to Denim, you see how the rest of the "cool world" lives. We headed to Denim with Dani, Tre, Matt, and Tim Legler from ESPN (Friends with Dani, and was with us for the party. You may remember him as winning the 3-point shootout competition during the 1996 All-Star weekend, he played on Washington Wizards.). We get to Denim and there is a huge line 30 people deep, 4 bouncers and a thin guy with a clipboard and frazzled look about him at the door - obviously he is the gatekeeper here. Legler and Dani walk up to him say a few words and we are all escorted in. Again, its nice to be amongst semi-celebrities.

4. Its nice to kiss and make up. One of the problems I have with this blog is that there is only so far I can delve into my personal life and not have it come back to bite me in the ass. Too many Hoboken people I know read this thing and some know about my problems, and some don't. If I wrote about everything I knew about everyone in this town, I imagine that scorned enemies would start scouting out watertower locations with their sniper rifles. One problem I currently have involves a friendship that went sour. Without going into detail, its nice to finally stop the drama and start being cordial and nice once again. 'Nuff said.

5. I'm stupid sometimes. It's Sunday around noon and i'm driving on I-95 back to Hoboken from Philly. Driving along, slightly hungover, listening to my iPod on my car stereo and thinking. Suddenly it dawns on me that I could have had a cheesesteak at Jim's on South Street. I look in the other lane, back to Philly and its a parking lot - if I turn around its going to be a nightmare. I forgo the cheesesteak and grumble on my drive home. Only sunny spot about the trip is that it took me 1 1/2 hours to get from Philly to Hoboken, which was great.

5a. My Birds crushing the Packers. I sent out an email on Friday to everyone in The Philadelphia Eagles Club of Hoboken about how nervous we should be of the Packers. Wow, was I wrong. Talk about making a statement with a win. Lets just hope the Eagles don't peak too early and keep this momentum going. Unbelieveable game, if the Eagles played like that in the NFC Championship game there won't be a team that could stop our run to Jacksonville.
