After the game, I was mildly surprised as to how little the Titans fans cocked off after the victory. There were a few scant chants of "8-0!" and "Smells like bad cheese!", but that was pretty much get. That's really the only thing that they made fun of Packers fans for, was that we love cheese.
How can that even be offensive? I love cheese so much. I got a hot dog and passed up condiments so that I could dip it in cheese. When I went home, I had five pieces of string cheese before I went to bed. I can't remember the last day that went by where I haven't eaten any cheese whatsoever. Unless I'm just blind here, I'm not offended one bit.
After the game, it was back to Coyote Ugly. This bartender is in the process of giving a body shot, and this is the portion where she teases you with a lime. I'm pretty sure this bartender was the main reason I couldn't handle this bar for more than 30 minutes. She would only talk to you if you referred to her as "Disney" or "Princess", because apparently she works part-time as a Disney Princess. Sweet.
But after a tough Packers loss I wasn't in the mood to be taken advantage by chicks whose main goal was to squeeze huge tips out of you. Which reminds me, we sat down next to a guy who spent $256 in about 1/2 hour. I'd first like to take this opportunity to thank him for the 2 rounds of shots and Miller Lites. I'd secondly like to take this opportunity to berate him for tipping 100 bucks to Princess.
Now after that, I needed to regroup at the hotel and get some food in me. That's where things really started getting interesting. First, me and my buddy Udes inexplicably watched the SNL Digital Short "Space Olympics" for like an hour. Not really sure how that came about.
We were then ready to head back out and hit the downtown, which features statue upon statue of Elvis. I wanted to get a picture with one of these statues, but was rudely interrupted by this guy on the left. As you can tell, I am not very pleased about this.
We then went to a bar named the "The Stage", which was apparently the stage where Johnny Cash perfected his craft. One thing I will say about Nashville on a Sunday night is that it rocks just as hard as Nashville on a Saturday night. You couldn't tell the work week was about to begin, because once again there were people everywhere.
You can't beat the Southern Hospitality either, as made evident by the random girl I made out with for a good hour or so. We made out like it was 9th grade, but unfortunately I never got more than her name. Liz, if you are out there, will you call me?
My buddy, however, topped me by getting to know a girl really well in the stairwell of our hotel. This begs the question, because we plan on doing this trip for a long time, and are currently at the ages of 24 and 25 right now. How long until hooking up with randoms no longer becomes cool and hilarious? 28? 30? Never? Please chime in on this, I'm interesting to know.
The Packers lost the game, 19-16. They are 4-4, and really need to get it together if they are going to make the playoffs. But I'm so proud to be a fan of a team that travels so well. I'm also so gracious to another city letting us in and tear up their town. And I'm thankful to Liz, my Southern Belle who I may never see again.
See you next year, Phoenix (?)
