It all started with a pinky toe.
You see I am frugal, or as my wife likes to call me a tightwad.
My old pair of athletic shoes were just fine. Yes the pinky toe of my right foot was visible but so what? like 98% of the shoe was still intact. But no, my wife made me go buy a new pair last week.
Like I said I;m frugal so when I spotted these bad boys on sale for half price I jumped.
I don't usually go for such flashy footwear but at half price I couldn't go wrong. Or so I thought.
As any longtime reader of this blog knows I am a diehard New Orleans saints fan. Last night the saints battled the Detroit Lions in the wildcard round of the NFC playoffs.
You might notice the colors on that Lion helmet nearly match those on my footwear.
Call me superstitious if you will but when the score was 14-7 Lions I ripped those damn blue shoes off my feet and flung them across the room. From that point on my beloved Saints dominated and eventually came away with a 45-28 victory.
My apologies to Drew Brees and the other members of the Saints organization for letting my frugality damage the cosmic Karma of the WHO DAT universe. And don't worry I will not wear so much as a single red item this week as you prepare to take down the San Francisco 49ers next weekend.
