As you can see, I haven't been blogging for the past two years. You might also notice that when I do blog, I tend to go in spurts. I'm not sure if this spurt is a one and done or if it will last through the end of the bocce season, or if it will go on for years. Only time will tell. But with our star QB, Johnny "Billy" Manziel's recent spontaneous incognito get away to Las Vegas, I couldn't help but be reminded of our very own master of disguise, PJ "Billy" Buynack. Now, I will admit that I poached this photo of PJ from a blog I wrote back in 2009, but the similarities between the two are striking.
For example, they both love to travel and post photo's of distant locales on social media, they both have a marvelous sense of the latest metro-sexual fashion, clearly they both have a flair for designer eye wear, they both are routinely over served at every watering hole they enter, they both have trouble remembering where they left their car from the night before, both can receive a love tap on the forehead and feign a concussion, and oddly enough, they are both much better looking when they try not to look like themselves.
Having said that, there are a few differences between the two Billy's. Johnny will drive 135 in a 55, and PJ will drive 35 in a 55. Johnny will pay a bar bill created by others, and PJ will create a bar bill to be paid by others. Johnny often puts his foot in his mouth, and PJ would prefer to put your foot in his mouth. Johnny hasn't worn diapers in the past twenty years, and PJ hasn't changed his diapers in the past twenty years. Johnny can be found with a harem of 25 year old bra-less hot babes, and PJ can be found with a harem of 55 year old hot flash, menopausal, cross your heart bra wearing, house fraus. Johnny has expired plates on his car, and PJ has expired food in his refrigerator. And lastly, My Bocce League insurance agent Bill Davis says that Johnny has been a dick head his whole life, and PJ says only a dick head would buy a whole life insurance policy from Bill Davis. So as you can see, we have a couple of fair haired stars in Cleveland; however, my guess is that Billy Bocce will be around a heck of a lot longer than Billy Football..
