The Kind of Crap We Do in New England




The Stanley Cup made a quick touchdown in our little corner of NH yesterday.  It was enroute to a private party in Maine and the pilot is a good friend of one of the restaurateurs here so he gave he chosen assembly a thrill, landed the copter for 5 whole minutes.  People just wanted to touch it.  I kid you not.

My husband viewed the video and said

"cool video...but have to admit that I am amazed at the resources wasted on a dumb hunk of metal.  Worshiping useless stuff is part of human behavior I will never understand."
I have to laugh because I immediately thought of Baal and idol worship, Old Testament warnings and everyone going to "H E double hockey sticks", which makes me laugh even more!


By the way, it looks like a big ole' milk can!

I guess it's what it represents which really does make it idol worship… but crazy behavior is not restricted to New England. Not an elegant statue though.

Hi! C.G...
Another interesting post...When it comes to what your husband said..lol
However, some men [and some women too!] love all sports and they "idol" the "wares" that come along with it!
C.G...Nice avatar, nice [B]iblical quote, and Thanks, for sharing the video too!

OH, that is funny! People do the craziest stuff. I think that about celebrities sometimes. They're people, too....just like the rest of us.

It does look like a milk can!
