Like A Good Neighbor
Although it could be.
Have you seen their commercials lately?
With that weird ass dude that's always lurking in the crowd, listening in on your conversations and turning them into a reason why you should use State Farm Insurance?
Lose the Members Only jacket dude!
This commercial bothers me because there should NOT be this much sexual tension in an advertisement about insurance.
Enough with the "come screw me" looks dude! Just kiss your insurance agent already! I'll bet that iPhone isn't the only thing in his pocket he wants to show Larissa! Sweep that step file, pencil cup and date stamp off that desktop and just get it on already!!
I might actually consider buying State Farm insurance if they had a commercial like that.
Ok, obviously I've gone off on a tangent and lost the original message of this post.
I'm talking about good neighbors.
We had planned to toodle into NYC yesterday to watch the Colorado v. Colorado State opening season football game at a sports bar and restaurant where the CSU-NYC Alumni Association was having a get together. It was to be the only game on TV we were going to watch this year since there are no games on ESPN, ESPN 2, or Versus this year. Bummer.
But that trip would have cost us some dough that would be better spent on school supplies for Dr. Mad Scientist (I dropped $30 making copies at FedEx/Kinko's half an hour before they closed the night before school started).
But the main reason we didn't go was because of Basement Neighbor.
Earlier Dr. Mad Scientist was griping about how there were to be no televised games for his team this year to Basement neighbor.
Well, Basement Neighbor works for a TV Installation Company so he's very handy in that department--and he left us a note on our front door Saturday morning that he had set up the TV in the back yard (yes, weird, I know) to receive The Mountain, which is the regional Colorado sports channel that carries all the Mountain West team sports.
I asked him how much we owed him since he had to add this to his package--he said no worries.
So on Saturday we got to watch our beloved Colorado State Rams play football.
Now if only they had won or made the game worthwhile...but that's a different story.
You can bet as the season progresses, Dr. Mad Scientist will be in the back yard watching football rain, shine, or snow! Ha ha!
