Yes, my friends, MetroDad has a fierce competitive spirit. I hate to admit it but it's true. Though I'm a sensitive, caring father of the new millenium, the old Alpha-Dog still lives inside me like a weekend warrior. To me, 2nd Place is better known as "1st Loser." And not to disparage the competition but I really can't fathom how I'm losing (unless some of my votes have hanging chads). I know the competition's blog design looks better than mine but what about the content? The only thing that comes to mind is something my man Mike D from the Beastie Boys once said,
"You've got the boomin' system but it's blastin' out doo doo
You think it's chocolate milk but it's watered down Yoohoo"
"I get it - I got it, I know it's good
The rhymes I write - you wish you would."
More than 2,000 visitors came here yesterday. I should have asked all of you to vote while you were over but I thought it might be rude because, for many of you, it was the first time we'd met. But did I mention how good-looking I thought you were? Seriously. And your ass looked great in those jeans. Oh wait, I'm sorry. It was MY ass that looked great in those jeans. But really, you looked damn good. Clearly, you've been working out and taking care of yourselves. And I love what you've done with your hair!
Alright...it's pretty clear I suck at kissing ass. That's probably why I've never worked as a corporate drone for some big company. For the past 10 years, the only person whose ass I've had to kiss is my boss. Oh shit, I forgot. I am my own boss. Damn, I look good today!
Anyway, the contest ends on Monday, the 17th. So for the next few days, I'm going to be pimping for your votes on a regular basis. After all, the first place winner gets a free re-design of this site (or as many of you have said, it would actually be a "design" because "re-design" implies that there was some sort of design in the first place.)
For those of you who are new to the site, here are some of MetroDad's golden oldies...
