The Weekend Desk Report

Super-Bore Sunday Edition, 2012

What's worse than the void at the end of football season? The void just before it. We bring you our annual list of suggestions for coping.

1. Avoid assholes. Good luck, though. They're almost as ubiquitous as that fucking swoosh.

2. Throw a party. But watch out; a bunch of losers might try to join in.

3. Take liberties. It's got to be more popular than seizing them.

4. Steal a wallet. It's probably less dangerous than stealing an election these days.

5. Have whatever she's having. As long as it's not what she's having.

6. Retire. Or be forced out. Or be usurped by someone younger and suddenly find yourself irrelevant. Or perform at halftime.


The Weekend Desk Tip Line: Unboring.
