Play-By-Play Commentary


I can't believe my eyes. This is a Layer Tennis first. I don't know how he did it, but Rob has sampled the palette of my parents' bedroom wallpaper from 1982 and seems to have wrestled it onto some kind of coded message from the past, plastering over everything we've ever known.

Well, I can say this now with almost absolute certainty: It pays to play Layer Tennis drunk.

Rob has come forth with an utterance of complete gibberish that has not only cost me precious DiGiorno Ultimate Four Meat pizza-eating time, it's thrown Scott into a complete Layer tizzy as he tries to reconcile the beige and dusty pink tones and remember the colors of his parents' wallpaper in 1982.

There are only really two options as I see them. Scott can continue with this wordplay, retaliating with his own made-up vocabulary rendered into a similarly unreturnable shot. Or he can toss that Atari controller back in there.

It's a dangerous sport, and I like it.
