Adventures in 2010

Life is magical... but full of pain.

The Jets are in the playoffs. Who woulda thunk it, a couple of weeks ago? The game against the Bengals was certainly impressive. Can they do it again, though? We'll see.

The Giants didn't play. I don't know who those guys in their unis were, but they sure were inept.

Goodbye, Bill Sheridan. A good guy, by all reports, but a horrendous defensive coordinator.

I meant to post yesterday on the weekend's games, but got busy writing instead, and finished a Tyrion chapter that I've been struggling with for six months. Nibbling away at that knot. We'll see if the finished chapter holds up to reread and polish today.

So there was a silver lining to the Giants loss.

Unless that Tyrion chapter is so good that I laugh, cry & pee my pants when I read it, it will not make up for the absolute beating my boys in blue took. :(

This is my favorite type of GRRM post...something about football and news that some part (even small part) of the book is moving towards completion.

Don't know who has been showing up in Giants uniforms for much of this year. Something just seems fishy there - it can't all be on Sheridan; they've got a lot of veteran players on that defense who are acting like they've never played the game before. What gives?!

Good luck with the Meerenese Knot - tricky little things, from what I understand.

The Giants looked worse than my Rams.

Well, at 1-15 at least we're guaranteed a boy named Suh.

Unless he holds out.

Or unless we take a sacrificial lamb---errr, I mean quarterback---instead.

Rams
I think its fair to say the Rams gave up on Kurt Warner a bit early. Oh for the Glory Days(I remember Roman Gabriel).

If Warner can get tossed aside for a clueless rookie than lead his team to a Super Bowl, surely the Starks can stage a comeback?


Headline:
Grand Tournament of the Seven Kingdoms (aka SuperJoust) to be held in revamped Winterfell.

It was nice of the Colts and the Bengals to forfeit those last two game to the Jets.

I guess the steelers will have to be content watching the playoffs on the tube like the rest of us.

I'm a Minnesotan, though not particularly a sports fan. When I heard the scores on Sunday, I knew you were going to be disappointed.

I have more loyalty to an author whose books I love than I do to the sports team from the state I live in. All is right with the world.

I remember my bf going "if they win tonight, they can win.." then, a couple of hours later "hey, they're in the play offs! oO"

As for commenting, well it's like writing: you never know when it comes XD It's good to hear that you're finally happy about that chapter - and it's Tyrion, so I'm already curious! Ah, let's touch wood and pray that you can continue to wrap all the knots away ;)

I was going to give you a hard time for not posting (your LJ was my first stop to see if the Jets won and made it to the playoffs), but given the reason, I guess I can deal with the inconvenience of having to go over to CNNSI for the final score.

Good luck on your re-read.

The Giants' loss is our gain. Hooray for the Giant of Lannister! :)
