REJECTED

Some of you may recall how I went to the Houston Texans Cheerleader Tryouts a few weeks ago. I wanted to give you guys a non-glamorous update to say that I was promptly turned away before stepping foot into the tryout zone.

Me: (after being curtly rejected by a large man in a Texans polo shirt) But why can’t I try out? I’m a cheerful guy, right?
Big Man: (dry, flat tone) Sorry sir, no men are allowed for try outs at this time.
Me: (adamant… and marco too) When do you think they’ll allow guys to try out for the cheerleading squad?
Big Man: (dry, flat tone) Sir, I’m sorry but men are not allowed for try outs at this time.
Me: (waiting to see if he says “this has been a recording”)…
Large older man with Texans paraphernalia: (to Big Man) Can I go check out the girls too?
Big Man: (dry, flat tone) Gentlemen, I’m sorry but men are not allowed into the tryout zone.

A couple of the cheerleaders were out front signing posters. I asked if they would sign mine “To Paul… you were great last night!” But for some reason, they didn’t.

To Chavez...

Anyway, I’ll be traveling for the next 15 days to DC and then to LA for work as well as spending time during my off-hours promoting my new book. Oh yeah, I’ll tell Mom you guys said hello!
