Hey everybody, you know how you tie your shoes? Like a genius? And you’re thinking, “Yeah, I just revised the way I tie my shoes because I saw that video about how to do it like a genius, so I’m pretty sure I’m doing it the right way now, no need for whatever you’re going to tell me, you can stop right now because I’ve def got this, my shoe tying game has never been more on point.” Well, my deepest apologies, but you are WRONG AGAIN! So, so sorry about how wrong you always are about your shoes. Friday Night Lights‘ Tim Riggins, AKA Taylor Kitsch, AKA “John Carter” of the film John Carter recently sat down for an interview with GQ Magazine where he let them know how REAL geniuses tie their shoes. (Looping the lace around an extra time before making the bow.) From GQ:

I play in a men’s league hockey in Austin. And I’m like, “Gentlemen, listen up. This is going to change your fucking life…” I learned when it was my Dad tying my skates, like seven or eight. Instead of going around once, you do it twice. All you’ve got to remember: “Just go around one more. Just one more.”

Does going around a third time make it even better, GQ asks?

No. It gets awkward if you do it another one.

Just one more. This has been a breaking news report from Tim Riggins re: tying your shoelaces. More information as the story develops.

  1. “Tying forever.” -Tim Riggins

  2. The rabbit doesn’t go around the tree twice! That’s preposterous!

  3. Taylor Kitsch should change his name to Tim Riggins and THEN change his name to Tim Riggings, because he’s a knot master.*

    *Also, because my uncle works for Social Security and really would enjoy all that paperwork.

  4. The problem with the Tim Riggins method is that your shoes will disappear for days at a time and you can never get a satisfactory explanation why.

  5. Sidebar

    I don’t understand how I’ve lived in Austin for 5 years and have never once seen any member of the Friday Night Lights cast. I would kiss Rigs on the mouth. No homo.


  6. If anything, I would’ve expected Tim Riggins to tell us about a revolutionary new method for unhooking bras.

  7. The John Carter sequel should simply be Taylor Kitsch giving advice about a variety of things: tying shoes, playing hockey, hair care, looking good while shirtless. SO many things to talk about!

  8. I’m sticking with the whole “tie-my-shoes-one-time-and-then-fucking-stomp-my-feet-into-them-every-morning-from-then-on” method, thanks very much.

  9. In exchange for this life-changing tip, I’m going to offer my own life-changing advice to Mr. Kitsch:

  10. between this and Olivia Munn telling me where to put my cum, I have had enough of liberal hollywood bossing me around. I loop once and put my cum where ever I damn well please like any other red blooded American.

  11. Tim Riggins! Come back! Tell me the best way to fold a fitted sheet! Tim Riggins! Tim Rigggggins.

  12. I’m starting to lose track of all the ways Tim Riggins has changed my life.

  13. Pictures or it didn’t happen. (I’m more of a visual learner.)
