Time machines are fun.
To celebrate Al Jefferson’s 40 point game, I revved mine up and set the chronometer to about a decade ago. The location I set to Prentiss, Mississippi. Luckily my newer model has patented TerraLocation technology, so I don’t have to worry about orbits and solar movements and such. Anyway, I had a mind to go and congratulate Al himself while he was working at the E-Z Shop he worked at when he was 18.
I walked in the store. It was my lucky day. There he was. A little thinner, and his attempt at a beard was looking pretty feeble. I grabbed some cans of Surge (man that stuff rocked) and walked up to the counter.
“Hey, congrats on the 40 point game, that was pretty impressive.”
“Which one? You know I’ve been averagin’ 42 this season.”
“Oh, I don’t mean one you played for the Bulldogs. I mean the one you just played for the Utah Jazz.”
He looked at me a little funny as I ran out of the store, cackling. I was about to head back to the time machine, but decided to take a look around town. Surprisingly I ran into the current president of the US, Andrew Rosenblum. We had a nice little chat, and I might have mentioned something about how good of a president he was. That might have been a mistake.
So now I’m back, and it’s weird, because he’s not even the president, instead it’s some dude named Obama? I looked Andrew Rosenblum up on Wikipedia and there wasn’t a page for him. And as I sit here typing this, I feel my recollections of his presidency fading away.
Luckily, I’m pretty sure Jefferson’s 40 point game still happened. So you’d better enjoy these highlights because I’m pretty sure I messed up the timeline a fair amount. Was it worth it?
Totally. Surge is so goddamn good.
