A dude's got to accessorize

My Livestrong wristband snapped recently (yes, in my mind it is still 2004) and I've been searching for a replacement. I bought this intertwined metal and brown string one at Target, which my brother-in-law thought I got at a Celtic festival. Hey, I think it's cool, but it just doesn't have the same feel. So I turned to ebay.

Yes, I found a casual way to support the Buckeyes daily during the upcoming college football season: an unlicensed knock-off OSU silicone wristband*. For $3 shipped, it's not a bad deal, considering here in Richmond it's hard to come by Ohio State gear. If only they'd open up a Buckeye Corner at Short Pump or someplace. A guy can dream, can't he?

In the next week or so I plan on visiting the University of Richmond bookstore to see if they offer a similar wristband for my beloved Spiders. That one will be for dressier, more formal occasions.

Speaking of college football, I'm getting my online pick 'em league set up today. If you want in, let me know. Yes, there will be a prize this year. It'll probably just be a DVD that I've weeded out of my collection, but you never know.

*I considered getting a Wriststrong band, but $7.50 + shipping? No, thanks.

damn, that is one hairy-ass wrist. you should shave your arms. i'm shaving pubes tomorrow, i'll let you borrow my trimmer when i'm done.

currently i'm wearing an orioles wristband that i found as i was cleaning out our old shed-thing. probably circa 1999 or so.

new sports illustrated has the bucks on the cover, i'll bring it to BBQ-U if i remember.

Hairy wrists are signs of virility. Get with the program.

You're my brother and there's a blood bond that cannot be broken. That said, I don't ever want to borrow a trimmer of yours that's involved with manscaping. Besides, I have my own. Gotta love gaining an optical inch!

I started reading that SI while I was waiting to get my haircut at Bubba's, but I was called up before I could glean any information.

if you put anything on your wrist, it should be one of these bad boys.

A Tag watch has always been on my post-lottery win list. Until then, my Fossil has served me well for the past 8 years.
