Here’s the deal. Croquet is cool, thanks to my cool friends, even though this year’s tournament did not bring me the wondrous praise that I got last year for playing a decent game. Because I sucked.
The day is also one of my favorites because the food is incredible. I think I should be bringing a dish, but do people really want me to bring some frozen Trader Joe’s appetizer just to go through the motions? I think not.
The most memorable part of my day was watching my female friend, who was wearing a Packers sweatshirt, root for the Vikings to beat the Packers, since she described herself as a “Brett Favre fan.”
I’m confident that I’m less of a football fan than she is, but isn’t rooting against a team while wearing their sweatshirt a little messed up?
