Two judges cause much celebration

I haven’t been able to do a lot of writing here on the blog lately.  It’s been a combination of having a very full schedule and not sleeping well.  I am working on trying to fix the part about not sleeping well.  The full schedule will start easing off a bit after October 10th.   I will probably post more about that in the near future.

In the meantime, I wanted to say something about two stories in the news that are related to the title of my post.  One is in regards to civil rights, the other is in regards to one of New England’s favorite athletes.

The last 24 hours have been insane

Wow.  Even though I am not much of a football fan, I have to say that last night’s game was pretty dramatic.

The Pats, our Mini, and absurdity taken to new heights

Anyone who knows me well knows that when it comes to football, I am decidedly… meh.  I just never got into the sport the way that so many other people (like Kelly) have.  Baseball is another story.  I love it.  Even hockey and soccer are sports I care WAY more about than football.  But still, I look forward to whenever the Pats go the Superbowl, because that inevitably means people I know will be throwing great parties with lots of beer, wings, and general awesomeness.

So this year the upcoming wingstravaganza Superbowl party seems to be dominated by talk about this mess regarding the slight under-inflation of footballs.  And frankly, I am a bit puzzled by the whole thing.

Fall is here… so long, summer…

And don’t let the door hit you on your way out.

Seriously, I have been wanting summer to go away for some time now, and not just because fall is my favorite season.  Largely because I am tired of being hot all the time.  Sure, we have some window AC units at home, but it is still not as cool in the house as I would like.  And my major place of employment is an 18th century building with no AC.

But I always try to find silver linings.

I thought it was pretty funny myself

A lot of Patriots fans have been talking about the new video on Funny or Die by Pats quarterback Tom Brady.  Basically, it is all about accents, and of course he doesn’t have one, much less a Boston one.  He seems to be a good sport about the whole thing, and I always applaud anyone who doesn’t mind doing some self-parody.  Anyway, for all you non-Boston people who haven’t seen it yet, here it is.

On Football

It’s no secret if you know me and Geoff that I’m the bigger football fan in this family.  While we’re both Red Sox fans, I’ll generally sit and watch a football game on TV with more interest than I will a baseball game.  I enjoy a baseball game live much more than on the TV while I will happily watch football either way.  I am also far more likely to talk football smack with friends and coworkers than Geoff is.  Unless of course you’re a Yankee fan, then all bets are off.
