We have just discovered a writer over on Sports Illustrated's website named Peter King. Peter writes about the NFL, and interjects fascinating events and discoveries he comes across in his life and travels. Mixing the football, life and advice into a column which one can use to essentially live by.
In his columns this week, the 50ish year old pop culture maven shared these unique discoveries:
"One of the best discoveries of midlife: St. Patrick's Day. Never thought I'd love Guinness, but it's pretty close to the perfect beer."
We aren't Irish, so we don't know these things. Who would have thought: the world's most popular and well known Irish beer...on St. Patrick's Day! Thanks for letting us in on that before we hit midlife, Mr. King. You saved us years of missteps.
"Just discovering the iPod, one of the great inventions of all time, and my one recent find was Norah Jones. What an incredible voice. "
iPad? iPed? iPud? What is this thing of which Mr. King speaks? And we have heard of a Norah Jones that won a few grammies back in 2005. Obviously, THIS must be a different Norah Jones that Mr. King is sharing with the world.
