some people try way too hard

I believe that most people really are who they are (like Popeye), for better or worse, for cool or for dork. However, there is a large minority of people who try really hard to be cool. In their attempt to be the greatest person alive, other find them ridiculous. It would be bad to be someone who tries too hard, but it would be worse to not know you are “that guy”.

I say all of this because the other day I passed “that guy” in my 10 year old minivan on the way back from Walmart. (Owning a minivan proves that I don’t try that hard to be cool)

Here are some pics:

I have a sneaky suspicion this guy is a Pittsburg Steelers fan, just a hunch though. Funny that he has Maryland tags. I hope other people think he’s cool, because if not, he wasted a lot of money simply to be “that guy”.

    What I am not quite grasping is the license plate photo, is he also a fan of Ben Stiller or was it too late fo him to realise the plate deosn’t read “steeler?” I have a knack for being in tune with the “painfully obvious.”
