    why would anyone even present this picture 

    of reggie white, today, the day of his death?

    all those great years with philly and green bay, and theyve gotta dig up the one sad crumbley year with carolina?

    thats why you’ll never ever ever see me wearing chicago white sox hat, cuz on the day that i die some lazyass mothers gonna plaster that all over the internets and say “mediocre blogger dead at 196”.

    for a while the number one picture that came up in google images if you put “tony pierce” into google and clicked images was this one taken around the holidays while i was in college. for some reason i was really depressed that day and this hippy had just gotten me stoned and i was rallying and then my buddy greg had me nearly fake a smile and click.

    google infamy.

    now this is the number one picture, taken about 20 minutes after ev announced that blogger had just been sold to google. i wasnt smiling cuz of that, i was smiling cuz i hadnt made a fool of myself in front of the blogosphere.

    my back was secretly drenched with sweat however. shhhhhh.

    youd think a man as wealthy as reggie was could have figured out a way to stop bad pictures from surfacing upon his death, but life isnt fair

    and control is an illusion

    and money is the devils tail that humans keep chasing.

    when i die i hope they just substitute my picture for one of wrigley field.

    or one of reggie white playing pool on his bible scripture pool table.

    and when kobe dies i hope they bring shaq back

    cuz the lakers arent shit without him.

    lost in a lunchbox + old poem + land of ghosts
