Blitzed for the Holidays: Christmas Trees

6 Dec

[Editor’s Note:  The holiday season is rife with opportunities for joyful merriment and for some, that means overindulgence.  With that in mind, we have our resident Steed standing by for the rest of the month to tell us how he enjoys this wonderful time of the year]

Christmas Trees

“I decided to combine the start of the holidays and  the last regular season weekend of N C doublefuckingA Football last Saturday in to a great idea –  I brought the tailgate to the Christmas tree lot down the street.  Got the boys together, got some dogs and fresh ‘slaw, a keg of the Blue Ribbon, and a couple bottles of the Schlag [Ed.’s note: Goldschlager] to keep everyone warm.  Goal was to get out there around 9, get a good buzz going, and have a couple trees already picked out before the start of the early games.

We got there around 11, after a couple kick-off rounds of shots, and got all set up in a prime spot next to some big ole granddaddy Douglas Firs.  The grill had just gotten fired up when some dude called a “volunteer parent” came by and asked us not to drink on school property.  I told him to keep the kids out of this and I think he agreed at that point since he let us be.

The next hour or so is kind of touch-and-go, but I’m pretty sure we tossed the pigskin around a bit, got some of the shoppers to get a game of touch football together, and were having a pretty sweet fuckin’ time getting into the holiday spirit.  Too sweet, it seems, because the “volunteer parent” happened to “volunteer” info to the cops about our festivities and the next thing I know, I’m asking the officer if he can tie my tree to the top of his car, or could I do it for him.  We took a ride at that point, but I woke up Sunday morning with some great holiday pictures and the neighbor’s tree shining brightly in my living room, so I can’t much complain.  Pretty good start to a pretty sweet month.”
