Something is very wrong with my brain, I just thought you all should know.
All night, I kept chasing the name Oscar De La Hoya round and round in my brain. I would wake up from a deep sleep with my first conscious thought being "Oscar De La Hoya."
Sometimes it was a question: "Oscar De La Hoya?"
Sometimes it was an exclamation: "Holy Oscar De La Hoya!!!"
Sometimes it was a simple declarative statement: "And then, Oscar De La Hoya."
For one memorable and seemingly interminable stretch between 4:17 and 5:02 or so, I engaged my brain in a long and circular debate about whether fixating on the name Oscar De La Hoya was somehow racist. Not surprisingly, considering the time and my sorry, sorry state of mind, I came to no conclusion.
If there's help out there, please send it soon.
