Can We Handle Two Dicks at Once?

I have to admit I was all at once nervous and excited when I got my first crack at Dicks back in college. Now, I am forced to realize that I am surrounded by Dicks. Frankly, I don't know if I can take all these Dicks with out becoming... well, broke.

How much shopping can one guy do? And how many sporting goods stores does one town need?When I moved to York, we had an East side Mall and a West side mall which had the West Side WalMart which balanced out the East Side Wally World. But, now things are getting out of control in my home town. We have two of everything: Target, Lowes, Wholesale Clubs, Chili's, you name it, and we've got two.

And now we have two Dicks, like some kind of mutant freak town. Let's face it; two Dicks sounds like a good idea on a Saturday night after 12 beers and a jello shot or two, but in the light of day, no one thinks it's a good idea. I mean, do people really need that many golf clubs, canoes and Under Armour shirts? On the bright side, we now also have two Tech stores since the shopping center that houses the second Dicks also has a Best Buy, balancing out our Circuit City only existence.
