Bound and Gags can’t believe I’ve let so much time go by without ranting about the loss of our hero and the greatest Survivor player in the history of the game. That’s right, Boston Rob Mariano. Well, it was such a painful experience to see him voted off by Russell’s evilness, it’s been hard to talk about it.
B& G mentioned that his girlfriend, who DVRs the show like us, runs over it for clues as if it’s the Zapruder film. We also do this, running it back and freezing the frame on Russell’s evil smirks, trying to find clues to prove he really is related to Satan. As if making fun of Rob’s Red Sox cap isn’t proof enough. I don’t know why we do this, replay it and pause on his face…it makes my blood pressure skyrocket.
I did publicly mourn Rob on Facebook, perhaps because I was so upset I couldn’t write more than few words cursing Russell for all of eternity. When Rob was voted off, I was ready to stop watching this season of Heroes vs. Villains. Buck convinced me to keep watching if no other reason than to watch Russell go down in a spectacular ball of flames. I can’t stand Parvati Shallow (perfect name) either, but I find myself cheering for her now, because I believe she’s the only one who can take him out and really make it hurt.
But not an episode goes by that Buck and I don’t comment, “Dammit! If only Boston Rob were still there, this never would happened!”
For Boston Rob fans who may have missed it, here’s an interview with him from the LA Times that’s interesting to read. I have to console myself that he’s got a couple million already, and had Amber and his new baby to go home to.
Update: Russell’s been arrested.
