Not sure there's a Venn diagram that has the intersecting circles of "Guys who need to watch sports 24 hours a day" and "Guys who feel the need to go to a salon to get a proper manicure"

Done in one. Well played.

Straight gay men.  They exist.

Or, maybe metrosexuals.

The only reason my toenails get the clippers is that I can't reach with my teeth.

Arh Arh Arh!

I dunno.. theres a place in Brookline where a lot of the redsox,pats, and celts players go to get their nails and toes done. If you make your living by the dexterity of your hands and feet you bet you take the best care of them.

I've never had either, but my masculinity has nothing to do with my fingernails.

I'm guessing this is made for pats fans.

Eh.  If you watch ESPN all the time, you can stop fooling yourself and turn in your man card now.

"But it's SPORTS!"

No, it's not.  It's TALKING about sports.  Talking, gossiping, chattering.

Hell, you've got the old biddies beat when it comes to pointless yammer, if you watch ESPN.  They have more baseless hypothesizing about a person's motivations and future performance, more discussion about feelings, and more bringing up ancient history than any sewing circle ever had.  And at least at the end of the day, the sewing circle made the world a few quilts richer...when you and your buddies sit down to listen to a lot of TALK about sports, what are YOU creating at the same time?  Empty beer cans?

Manicure no, but there's nothing better than a little Asian woman cleaning your toenails and massaging your legs.

Women watch sports too.

I'd totally go there if it wasn't in West Hollywood. I go for the hand and foot massage, the clipping of the nails is just bonus.

CipollinaFan: Women watch sports too.


And women will soon  invade this place.  They hate places where men can get away from the shrieking harpies and have some quiet male bonding time. Dude near me opened a barber shop like this place.   Within 3 months 60% of the clientele was broads complaining about the sports on TV and the awful Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition.

And I spend $40 for a manicure every once in a while.  It's especially uplifting before I have a big meeting.  No polish, though.

Hardly.  That model isn't equipped with the swing out digger/file.

As someone who has battled ingrown nails most of my adult life, I would so go here. Rather have a professional deal with my cuticles rather than my own two fists of ham.

But since I'm nowhere near there, it's the place 'round the corner with the frou-frou decor for me. It may not be masculine, but those massage chairs are niiiiiice.

I resisted getting a pedicure for a long time, but eventually my wife got me to go. It is actually very nice. It doesn't hurt that the cute asian girls at the salon seem to have fun with me. <shrug>
 
2013-10-26 04:09:23 AM  
Well, it is West Hollywood after all.

you sound insecure.

It just doesn't interest me but if a guy wants to do it, who cares? I do enjoy gardening and cooking though. Does that make me some kind of sissy?

Men get manicures and pedicures, I get that.  But during the damn game?!  Really?  I'm surprised they don't hurt themselves from jerking their hands and feet out from the person doing it because they want to gesticulate about a play.

Well, I got a bad back so I go in for pedicures. The manicures are just a bonus.

/fark you I'm keeping my man card

I don't see anything wrong with men getting manicures or pedicures.  But I agree, it'd be hard to do that while watching a game you're really into.

I don't like getting manis because they trim my cuticles and a few days later it ends up looking worse than when I came in.  But man... a monthly pedicure would be awesome.  I'm just lazy and cheap
