Are You Ready for Some Football?

Super Bowl Sunday's coming up this weekend. Do my Kiwi/Aussie sisters at TFC watch the Super Bowl?

About three years go, I realized something was missing in my life and I started watching sports again. I'm a NY fan: Mets for baseball, Knicks for basketball, and for football, I'm a Jets fan all the way. The Jets have given me a lot of pleasure - and no small amount of frustration! - these past few years. And of course, since they're out of it, I'm torn about who to root for this weekend, the NY Giants or the New England Patriots? Here's the thing: I'm also torn between two neighbors. One neighbor, Mr. Nice Guy, loves the Patriots. Mr. Nice Guy deserves to win, right? But the other neighbor, Mr. Anger-Management Issues, loves the Giants. Do I really want to be around if he loses? It is a dilemma.

How about you? Who are you rooting for in this year's Super Bowl?

While you're thinking about that, here are the titles of some fabulous football-themed YA novels I've read and loved:

CRACKBACK, by John Coy

GYM CANDY, by Carl Deuker

KNIGHTS OF THE HILL COUNTRY, Tim Tharp

THE DAIRY QUEEN TRILOGY, by Catherine Gilbert Murdock

So, have you made up your mind yet? I'm still not sure. I like Tom Brady, the Patriots' QB, a lot better since I saw him guest star on Entourage. But I always feel sorry for the Giants' QB, Eli Manning, even though the Giants are the Jets same-city/same-stadium rivals, because Eli always looks to me like he's scared someone will try to steal his lunch money.

Hopefully, by Sunday at kickoff time, I'll make a decision.

Be well. Don't forget to write.

I must admit that I really am not a football fan. I love baseball (Chicago White Sox) and hockey (Chicago Blackhawks), but I have never understood football even though I bartended on Sunday afternoons for a few years and was forced to be around it. That probably made me like it less. Except for gambling on it. That was kind of fun :) But I hope Mr. Nice Guy's team wins because Mr. Anger Management needs to learn to deal with his disappointment.

I've been eyeing "Gym Candy" for a while now since I have it in my Media Center. I'm going to have to pick it up sometime soon! I recently bought Mike Lupica's newest "The Underdogs" and have heard great things from students, so there's another football book for you!

I don't watch the Super Bowl and know nothing about it. I'm not sure if they show it here in Australia - well they might on Fox Sports.... I'll check it out!

Attempting to know when the raids will come is futile. The only answer is to always be in a position to take advantage of them rather than be crushed by them. Their objective is to drain your funds so don't let it happen. Dont over commit. Have funds earmarked for raid opportunities. In the meantime trade as though there is no EE raid coming. They win when they have us always concerned about the possibility.Dijual Rumah di Jakartacar insurance florida

It's also good to know all these buildings that hold so much history are still up, and the style still seems impeccable despite it being built during the 14th century.

Since the founding of the United States, the power of the president and the federal government have grown substantially[6] and each modern president, despite possessing no formal legislative powers beyond signing or vetoing congressionally passed bills, is largely responsible for dictating the legislative agenda of his party and the foreign and domestic policy of the United States.[7] The president is frequently described as the most powerful person in the world.

A very nice looking cavalry regiment. I hope that you can make it to the SYWA convention. I'm sure that you will have better luck in the game. I think that "aisle between the tables" caught you off guard. I watched you play in other games and I can say that you are a good wargamer. so chalk it up to some bad luck, nothing more than that.

I can say your painting is far from crap if these are the results you produce! I'd be more than happy with that standard of painting. Thanks also for the tip of using a dark green-gray as a highlight for black. I will try it. I find a sand/buff color useful for red highlights.

I am glad oyu enjoyed yourself at the convention. I am sorry your Bavarians was handled so roughly their first time on a table. However as a side joke of the story when the unit was rode down they where placed by the registration table. There was at least ten people that asked if they where for sale after that. The Bavarians really look nice.

All French heavy cavalry regiments were actually "regiments of Horse" and all of them wore iron cuirasses underneath their coats. The dragoons were light cavalry employed for scouting and did not wear cuirasses, ditto for hussars. Only the Cuirassiers du Roi wore front and back plates outside of the coats.

After reading I do not think that they actually fought in a battle just garrison duty so I was thinking maybe another regiment of IR-Kurprinz to flesh out the whole brigade or another Curiassier regiment or both. One final thought was that I would redo the flags in Cavenderian and add a Cavenderian Regiment or Squadron.

During the lead-up to the 1960 CCF convention, Argue was pressing Coldwell to step down. This leadership challenge jeopardized plans for an orderly transition to the new party. Lewis and the rest of the new party's organizers opposed Argue's manoeuvres, and wanted Saskatchewan premier Tommy Douglas to be the new party's first leader.
