Top Ten Towns I Have Been To (Number 10 – Brazil, IN)

I should warn you that this is not other “Top Ten” travel postings you might see because not all of my entries are going to have things to do in a particular town or city.  Rather, it has to do with the people, ambiance, climate, radio stations, and other things I look for when I travel.  This entry will be one of those.

#10 – Brazil, IN

Brazil is a small town near Terre Haute, IN.  It is near I-70 and US 40 runs through the center of town.  My first experience was when I was a senior in college and was going from Cincinnati to Cleveland for Spring Break.  We got a bit lost and I figured that as soon as we went through Indianapolis.  We stopped at a truck stop in Brazil and asked for directions.

It turned out that we were nowhere near Cleveland, but the truck stop had biscuits and gravy!  I was going to have just biscuits and gravy, but I saw a guy at the counter have his with eggs and bacon.  He put the eggs and bacon on top of one biscuit and put the other biscuit on top of the eggs.  I tried it and LOVED it!  Ladies, if you aren’t in the mood for sex, make me one of these and i’ll leave you alone for the night.  I’ll be so satisfied that I won’t need nookie until the following morning.

The second time I was in Brazil was heading back home from Terre Haute on a business trip.  I drove through Brazil and found out that Brazil had an aquarium.  The thought of an aquarium in Indiana blew my mind.  According to the directions on the internet, the aquarium was on E.National and North Forest.  It turns out that the aquarium I was looking for was in Brazil the country and not Brazil the town in Indiana.  There was a CVS across the street from where the aquarium was supposed to be and those people were nice.


2011 NFL Season – Super Bowl XLVI

Last Week: 1-1 (.500)  Playoffs: 6-4 (.625)

It all comes down to this.  Winner gets the Lombardi Trophy.  Loser gets a few bucks, but they don’t get an “I went to Indiana and all I got was this lousy t-shirt” t-shirt.  A Manning will be playing in Indianapolis, but it’s not Peyton or Archie.  It’s Eli.  And Mario Manning(ham).

2/5 6:30 ET New England  -3 NY Giants

NY Giants (12-7) vs. New England (15-3)

This pains me.  As a lifetime Giants-Hater/Redskins fan since 1997, the last thing I want to see a division rival in the Super Bowl.  I especially didn’t want to see the Giants because I am currently living in New Jersey and I don’t want to hear Giants fans when I parade around town donning my Rex Grossman jersey.

Another thing in the Giants favor is that this should be a heavy pro-Giants crowd.  Besides the Manning connection, people from Indianapolis do not like the Patriots.  They don’t like Bradys who are not named Greg, Peter, Bobby, Marcia, Jan, or Cindy.  Lucas Oil Field will be hostile for the Patriots.

Life can be cruel, and I have a feeling life will be cruel and I will be heckled by Giants fan throughout the off-season.  Take the Giants and the points and hope that I am wrong.
