I consider myself your average American, but there are times when I find myself out of the mainstream. Cases in point:
Sorry, World Cup fans. Soccer bores me.
People enjoy the big wheel on "The Price is Right." I find it tedious. Use the time to play another game and simply take the show's top two winners for the showcase round.
In a similar vein, I've never warmed to "Wheel of Fortune." It must be something about wheels.
I love hamburgers and I adore a good meatloaf. I'm a big cheesesteak fan. I do make an occasional Arby's expedition. However, a big hunk of steak or a bloody prime rib nauseates me. I can't remember the last time I've had a steak. Prime rib? Never.
I also can't remember the last time I had a cup of coffee, and I marvel at how people wait in long lines for overpriced brews.
You can line up the country's leading light beers. I can't tell the difference.
You can line up the country's leading seltzers. I can't tell the difference.
I loved those Thanksgiving morning parades as a kid. Now? You could run video of a parade from twenty years ago and I couldn't tell the difference.
I've covered oodles of football and baseball games over the years. The last time I watched a football game, recreationally and in person, was the Scranton Eagles and that must have been thirty years ago. Games attended since the Red Barons became the Yankees/Railriders: 1
I've never seen any of those zombie TV shows and I don't stream anything. I never found "Seinfeld" funny and you know how I detest "The Office."
I can identify Taylor Swift in a photo. I don't know any of her music.
I cannot seriously think about Christmas until the middle of December.
I actually drive the speed limit!
Out of touch, and proud of it.
