  • Here in Wisconsin, at oh dark-thirty in the morning it was good for a laugh. I love it.

    A Blessed Holiday to you and yours Miss V

  • This is so SAD.
    When there are people in Africa who could use a warm sweater, spending so much money on such an extravagance for a Dog is shameful. Especially wasting it on something bearing THAT school's logo and colors. Sundries is going downhill. Albeit in blind loyalty to a has-been gridiron power.

    Hey Darryl! I'm so glad you could come down here to my blog!

    I didn't realise you were in Wisconsin -- do you know a bird called Ann Althouse by chance? ;)

    A Blessed Holiday to you and yours Miss V

    Thank you, my dearest.

    The very best to you and your family, with eggnog wishes, and chestnut dreams of a great Christmas morn. :)

    Come back anytime! I'll soon return you know where.

    Cheers,
    Victoria

    That's very close to what my dad said. *g*

    OOH! Put 'em up! Dem's fightin' words.

    We'll show you has-been in the Peach Bowl! Oh pardon -- the Chic-a-Filet Bowl!

    Cheers,

    10 "sads" right here! Am I a good predictor or what?

    Indy Colts over the Cinci Bengals by 3 in the Super Bowl.

    Cheers,
    Victoria

  • It's sad that I didn't pick up on the fact that the sweater was for your dog!

  • Ummm, Colts and Bengals are both AFC teams so they would meet before Super Bowl XL

    And close Super Bowls are a rarity (when not involving New England, anyway)

    So I'd say Indy over Seattle by 24.

    (about time to book reservations in Las Vegas for that weekend, can't beat Vegas during Super Bowl Weekend, even if the No Fun League tries to limit the viewing parties)

    (I'll forgive your faux paus, not like I could discuss anything about championships for that other kind of Football with any sort of accuracy)

    (I think this is a personal record for links within a post)

  • Okay, Victoria, you've been a good sport seeing that American football is not your cup of tea, though you started it with that doggie warmer.....when does your type of football, soccer, fotbol begin their playoffs or have a championship? I'd like to watch in your honor IF such a game is broadcast on American TV.
    That's not really for your dog, is it? Poor thing.

    Dude, I'm petite, but come on!

    Those little openings for the paws at perpendicular angles were a dead give-away. Freak! ;)

    ARGGGH! Fancy me not knowing that the Bengals are in the AFC.

    Especially since the very first Super Bowl I recall is the Montana-Boomer one, which I adored.

    Okay, how about this? I know you will laugh at me, but I say:

    Peyton over Eli, by 10.

    Smoke that in your crackpipe and call me in the morning!

    (Or something)

    Cheers,
    Victoria

  • Okay, Victoria, you've been a good sport seeing that American football is not your cup of tea,

    HELLOOOOOO.

    I love the NFL! I love gridiron football. I love the smell of pigskin! I love the hut-hut of the QBs, and the trash-talking of the linesmen!

    Remember, I was top of my FANTASY NFL YAHOO LEAGUE???

    (Okay, the private PLUS league which JSU, Ren, me and others are in, I failed woefully, but I always do in that league...I win 5 in a row, then I lose 5 in row...)

    though you started it with that doggie warmer.....when does your type of football, soccer, fotbol begin their playoffs or have a championship?

    Well, it depends what you mean.

    Playoffs are an American invention in sports, as such.

    Usually, it is played in a league format, 2 matches, with home and away.

    But there are also Cups, like the oldest soccer cup in the world, England's FA Cup (Football Association).

    That's A BIT like your playoffs.

    Obviously, it's only valid to English soccer teams.

    There were aborted international cups, but they didn't pan out.

    Now, NATIONAL teams have a kind of playoffs too -- we will have the magnificent, 4 year-wait for the World Cup between nations this summer '06.

    Get used to it -- I'll be blogging A LOT about soccer during that time. :)

    I'd like to watch in your honor IF such a game is broadcast on American TV.

    ESPN2 during the Champions League -- whereby the top-finishing teams of each European soccer league pit their team with each other.

    We've just finished the CL group play (they each play each other home and away, but amongst four teams in a group).

    Here come the knock-off rounds in February!

    That's not really for your dog, is it? Poor thing.

    Yeah. :)

    I know, I sent Renato a pic of him wearing it already...not that one, another one.

    Very sad. But CUTE, dammit!

    *g*

    Victoria

  • Here in Santa Monica many of the English Pubs (and there are many, the number of Brits and 1st gen former Brits is something like a fifth of the population) show English League games live (they begin usually about 5am here I think).

    They serve breakfast with the football and then around half time (after 6am) they can start serving beer.

    So not only can you watch proper Football here, but you can watch it while rowdies cheer for either side as it should be (Man United seems to be the most popular side, big surprise)

    (now if only a good snooker table were closer by, Ronnie O'Sullivan is god)

    As far as an All Manning Super Bowl, it's a distinct possibility, but alot can happen between now and then.

    (personally I'd love to see a Falcons v. Chargers Super Bowl, but both those teams might miss the playoffs all together)

    "Smoke that in your crackpipe and call me in the morning!

    Sorry, gave up the pipe years ago, and I lost your number.

    Cheers then,
    XWL

    (I'd give you my number but I'd be afraid one of your Cubano novios might get jealous)

  • Peyton over Eli in a big game? Hah.

    I have the feeling one of the Jakes may be participating, though.
