Man Paints House Burgundy, Gold

Why, you ask, did this man from North Carolina paint his house burgundy and gold?

"Well," he explained, "it was my turn to pick the colors, and all my clothes are burgundy and gold, so...."

Were that the universal rule of house-painting, Craig Sager's house would be truly amazing. And if this man's wife has any self-worth at all, she will insist on choosing electric pink and ripe apricot when it's her turn to pick the colors.

Did he say he was Jeff Hostetler's brother? Seems you woulda gone for the Giants, but heck, who can forget Jeff tying that one for the Skins on Sunday night after Gus' head-banging? Forget the Super Bowl, that's Hostetler's highlight.

When I was a kid, I used to deliver the newspaper to a neighborhood comprised of these bizarre condo/garage combos. One of them was owned by a crazy old man who smelled terrible and had more 'Skins memorabilia in his garage than you could find in Fedex Field. The walls were burgundy with white accents, and there were many framed posters and photos of the team's great players. The bar had stools with burgundy legs and gold tops. The garage floor had been carpeted in burgundy shag. He had to park down the street because he'd sacrificed his garage space to make a shrine to the team.

The funny things are that a) that is not why I regard him as a crazy old man and b) that he had a tiny, tiny TV set up in there for watching games. One of those TV/VCR combos, 10" screen tops.

This guy is a permanent fixture at the Food Lion in Avon, NC! Spent a week there this summer, and I actually talked to him about the Skins for a minute. It kinda seemed like he worked there, he was always lurking near the customer service counter or just outside the doors chain smoking... Anyone else recognize this dude form there? I know I'm not crazy!

Clearly this dude did not get the memo that our players have no interest in being the burgundy and gold. He should have painted his house White on White...cause apparently that is what looks cool.
