Man Card Revoked if a Guy Likes ‘The Voice?’
I’m a guy. I like “guy” things. I like baseball. I like football. It doesn't get much manlier than hockey and I like that, too.
I enjoy an occasional cigar and a couple cold beers. I have a tattoo – it may have a flower on it but it’s a “manly” looking flower. Besides, it has a deep meaning to me. I like useless sports trivia and can recite the lines from 'Smokey and the Bandit' word for word. I once got a technical foul in a church league basketball game for cussing at the referee. I know, I know. I’m a rebel.
While the traits I've mentioned above might not get me the title “Most Interesting Man in the World” (stay thirsty, my friends), I’ve never lived my life in fear of having my Man Card revoked. That is, not until now.
I’m a guy and I have a confession. I enjoy watching 'The Voice.' There, I said it. Do I immediately lose my Man Card? Or is it suspended, pending the outcome of a Board of Review? I realize if a guy watches and enjoys 'Glee' or 'Dancing with the Stars' there is no review necessary; the Man Card is revoked immediately with no chance of ever being reinstated.
'The Voice' is very entertaining. I enjoy Blake Shelton’s music, but his true personality comes out on the show and he is extremely funny. His banter and rivalry with Adam Levine only partially covers up their obvious man crush they have on each other. Cee Lo Green and Christina Aguilera have returned for the next season, which debuts on Monday, September 23, on NBC.
Blake has been the winning coach in the last three seasons, after Adam won the first season. Cee Lo and Christina are anxious for their first wins. It should be a lot of fun this fall. I hope I can keep my Man Card. Football season is about to start and the baseball pennant races are heating up. I can talk about that for hours. It’s a good thing I didn't just reveal that I can also recite most of the words to the movie 'Grease.'
