I am from Buffalo, NY. We are home to the Buffalo Bills (NFL) and Buffalo Sabres (NHL); the only two professional sports team in the city. Both franchises have had their share of heartbreak, specifically the Bills and 4 Super Bowl losses in a row, the first being from a missed field goal in the final seconds of the game.
Every January as two new teams are preparing to play in the Super Bowl, every media outlet reminisces of Super Bowls past, and every year us Bills fans are subject to watch the clip of Scott Norwood missing the field goal, wide right of the post. It’s like looking at a car wreck, you know you shouldn’t look, but you just can’t help yourself. The wound is open and you hold it there for the media to pour in the salt. It’s extremely painful, and probably something only Bills fans understand.
Recently, Lululemon decided to open a store in a local mall (as if people in Buffalo want to pay $60 for a pair of yoga pants). Some asshole in the Lululemon design department decided that they should add some local flair to the foyer of the store in the form of a mosaic with some oh-so inspiring words for their customers.
Enter this gem of an idea:
Thanks Lululemon, the city of Buffalo appreciates the reminder of the heartbreak and loss our sports teams have suffered.
WHO THINKS THIS IS A GOOD IDEA??????? A COMPLETE FUCKTARD.
I’m going to be honest, if I worked at Lululemon (which I wouldn’t because they don’t believe in carrying size XL, which I am, and I don’t appreciate their size-ism, but that’s a post for another day), and I walked into the store and saw that shit, I would have quit. On the spot. But I’m a diehard sports fan, so I understand Sally Yogapants probably didn’t care.
So to wrap up my little angry rant, I’d like to leave Lululemon with some ideas for their other store locations:
Cleveland: “Mistake by the Lake”
Boston: “Curse of the Bambino” or “18-1”
Baltimore: “Original Home of the Colts”
Washington DC: “Hail to the
Philadelphia: “T.O. Was Here”
