Random Jonas Brother discussion.

Hi, all!

So many Tottenham Hotspur children have made their Hoddle debuts recently.

Ramble of the Day

Being in the age group that I am and being from where I’m from, I was part of the Jonas Brothers’ initial demographic, and I probably am part of their new demographic for the same reasons. I’ll tell you that I’ve listened to and enjoyed their stuff, but I’m not here to tell you to listen to them or to explain why they’re great or not. I have small Jonas Brothers take, though, so I figured this is as good a place to share as any:

Kevin Jonas is the best Jonas brother.

For starters, Nick must be ruled out. He broke the band up, and you can’t be the best of a group you broke up. Joe is probably the coolest because he’s gotten to a certain status in quote-unquote cool Hollywood circles (marrying Sophie Turner probably helped, but he seems cool enough on his own). Being the coolest isn’t being the best, though, and like I said, Kevin’s the best.

He’s the best because he was a witness during the FIFA trial in 2017, something else neither of his brothers can claim. He also has a list of random life events that his brothers don’t share, including being a contractor for a Real Housewife of New Jersey. This particular incident at a court in Brooklyn, though, required him to confirm that a Paul McCartney concert in Buenos Aires, allegedly attended by former CONMEBOL president Juan Angel Napout, which Jonas and the brothers also attended. That seems to be the long and short of it, which makes me laugh but is totally normal.

Anyway, the life of Kevin Jonas has been a somewhat amusing and enjoyably public one in his full adulthood and outside of his music, a randomness that I truly enjoy.

tl;dr: Kevin Jonas is the best Jonas brother — a controversial take.
