Obtaining....

….. well, even though it certainly may not feel like it with the heat, humidity, and ragweed pollen, it appears that college football season is truly upon us…. and after checking the various schedules, it looks like I have an impossible task ahead of me….. that’s right, folks, I have to find myself a sports bar/pub in Amsterdam that’ll be showing the Tennessee-Florida game on September, 15th…..

… hell, I may have to see if I can break into the US Embassy as a last resort….. but you know, I am pretty optimistic…. I mean, my track record for obtaining the nearly impossible while traveling abroad has been tested quite a few times now… and I’ve always managed…. I once scored a half-gallon of Johnny Walker and two lovely fifths of Beefeater gin during an Islamic holiday AND a general worker’s strike in Dhaka… so surely I can find a SEC fan or two in a great seat of civilization such as The Netherlands……

… then again, it’s not that my beloved Volunteers are predicted to defeat those nasty Gators…. but I’d still like to watch it even if it turns into a bloodbath…

… the upside?.... well, if I cant find the game on, I suppose I could just hit a coffee shop and sip some tea while the locals puff their blunts…. I mean, after all, it is Amsterdam…. And if I cant catch the UT game, at least the Europeans and their dope-smoking will be mildly entertaining…

Bullshit So Far

I'm thinkin' secondhand smoke. there is, was, a famous(?) book called, "The dog is us", about the the so-called hippie generation, and the old notion that if you blow dope smoke in a dog (or cat's) ear the animal will become stoned, and do funny things. The point being that if a group of people have enough el supremo to blow it into an animal's ear, they are likely stoned plenty, and the animal will appear to do silly things ANYWAY. Angie sez you should ask at he local Hostel, They would know where the U.S. expats and such hang out. When I was in San Miguel de Allende, deep in mexico, Martina and I were able to find a hotel-bar that had norte-americano news on teevee. Admittedly, that town is known for it's anglo population, both seasonal and permanent, but the concept is valid...

It doesn't work in the ear... hold the snout closed with your hand and blow smoke in the nose when you loosen your grip and they suck in a breath. Yes, they do funny things.
...um, so I've been told.

Strangled pets do act strangely, gotta give you that. (when you loosen your grip and they take in a breath)...that part is a little disturbing, are we trying to get the animal high, or cause that weird auto-erotic-orgasm-thing? (lol) I don't mind when they hump my leg, and the whole 'stick yer butt in my face' thing is forgivable, but coming in my bong is right out.

'tis not strangling...heh...merely to try and time their inhale with your smoke-blowing.
(auto-erotic-orgasm-thing...tsk-tsk) :)

I thought setting he injection pump timing on a mercedes diesel was tricky, but this whole dog/inhale/human/exhale thing is much worse, and when do you set the choke/strangle it?...confused in maryland...

Those previous comments between Jean and Bindersix -- strange thread to follow. And best I could tell, had nothing to do with finding a telly in Amsterdam with a UT game. I'd recommend not spending too much time looking for it. Probably be another butt-kick like last night out in hippie-land. At least they did not get embarrassed like we did to them last year at Neyland.

If you're determined, there may be a simulcast on internet.
