it's sunday afternoon -- WHY AREN'T YOU PEOPLE WATCHING FOOTBALL?
i mean real football.....SOCCER! not that goofy thing that you gringoes call football. i mean what a ridiculous sport...22 big brutes beating the crap out of each other for 60 minutes only to have some twerpy little guy change the outcome of the game in the final seconds by kicking the ball (and i use that term loosely...that oblong thing is anything but a ball) between some uprights.

12. Nope. I'm in Michigan watching my home team, the one with more
titles than any other team in NFL history...so I wouldn't know what it is you are talking about. :shrug:

15. I'm no Packer fan, but let's give the team its due.
They've been around 85 years. It's a little silly to make jokes about Wisconsin "waiting" for their very own football team. They had one of the first.

KC has or had one, and Preki is almost as old as Favre.

Though today's game is looking pretty ugly.

14. Aw, shoot
I had this whole screed ready about how American football is a fascist microcosm of war and silly besides, and the Gato goes and flips the pitch. Real football kicks the crap out of that padded, steroidal stampede all good Mer'kins worship to the point of fanaticism. And Australian Rules Football is even better.

Flame on. :hi:

18. as opposed to watching 11 prima donnas
pass the ball around for 90 minutes? I can watch that in practice. Any sport where the best match ever can be summed up in two minutes of highlights, and you didn't miss much is a bit off.

oh, and you'd rather a sport where two teams play for 120+ minutes without scoring at all, and then the game is decided by a shootout in which the offense scores 95% of the time? why not decide basketball games by shooting free throws? or playing darts? or flip a farcking coin?

32. It WAS fun!!!
Things are fine up here, though the weather is getting cold. Please stop gloating.

My younger niece, a psychiatric nurse practitioner, is spending two weeks in Baton Rogue working on hurricane relief with FEMA. The gummint -- typically -- is not putting her abilities to maximum use, but she is happy to be there doing something positive for people who need it. She was missed tonight, but we are extremely proud of her.
