It’s all just gone to my head. One little thing has happened, and it has me dreaming on red carpets, meeting celebrities, and well, just plain getting out of proportion.
I’m not a huge football person. I enjoy the Superbowl: with the food, friends, and family. I enjoy seeing my dad get all excited about an upcoming game. I enjoy eating crap in the stands and having father-daughter bonding time.
But I don’t really know how football works. I play in my school’s marching band, and I’m so preoccupied by playing our little tunes and performing our big halftime show, and playing around in our separated stands that typically at the end of the night as I go home: I have no idea who won.
That probably sounds ridiculous. I imagine our school’s newspaper staff–which I am apart of–having its sport editors accidentally coming across this. I see them cringing in horror at my lack of sportiness. Unless you include marching band, which I do. But most don’t.
Today my dad texts me saying that Pendery and Cincinnati Bell are considering filming a commercial in our basement with Andy Dalton and AJ Green. For those of you who don’t know, these are two very famous football player whom my dad idolizes.
It starts with my dad going to an auction while they were redoing the Bengals’ Stadium. In this auction he buys kickass Bengals tables, from the stadium. He sands them, cleans them, and puts a special glaze on them. They then sit in our basement being used but still waiting for their true purpose.
Cincinnati Bell is filming a commercial. They reach out to Pendery (a house company) looking for a good venue. Pendery remembers that we recently had our basement finished and it’s very nice, so they put us into consideration and sends all the options to a guy from Pendery. This guy oversaw the photographing of our basement and remembers our tables. We make it to be one of the final options that they are considering.
Now we wait.
When I first found out, I was ecstatic. This basement is where I had my last birthday party: I had my birthday party in the same room Andy Dalton and AJ Green are shooting a commercial (maybe!)
I’m so excited. I can hardly wait. I’ve spent a lot of time in that basement, and I’m excited for a once in a lifetime opportunity.
