Erstwhile Concept Art

Hate certain teams

It's 4 am and we're just waking up, blinking into a tv screen with the volume turned down and reasonless images scrolling past, or maybe just the rainbow test pattern, or a solid blue from when we forgot we were going to play video games. It's 10:30 last night and we're wondering how they could've dropped that football. It's 9:15 on Saturday and we're well on our way to carving out a fresh new rivalry. It's 2006 and we're losing to Russia in the quarter-final.

It's 1972 and it's 1987 and it's 2010 and we're all standing up and cheering and jumping the bench and everybody piles on.
