Win, Win

jets 1
Life is... well, tolerable.  On this Sunday, at least.

The Jets and the Giants both won today, but somehow, considering the dismal seasons they've had and the fact that both have long since been eliminated from the post-season, it is hard to summon up a "life is magical and full of joy."

The Jets thumped the Browns pretty solidly.  Our rookie QB Geno Smith looked... okay.  He ran for the winning TD, which was good.  And he didn't throw any interceptions, which was better.  I am so sick of INTs.  Maybe if Gang Green upsets the Dolphins next week to finish 8-8, that will save Rex Ryan's job.  But I doubt it.  I think Rex has been set up to be fired since before the season began.  The new GM doesn't want him.  He wants "his own guy," all the talking heads keep saying.  Pfui.  I don't know who "his own guy" is, but I doubt very much he'd be better than Ryan, who has been the best coach the Jets have had since Bill Parcells.  Firing him would be insane.  Which likely means the Jets will do it.

The Giants won in overtime.  They looked awful, and suffered several more injuries.  I think they have just about to run out of offensive linemen and running backs.  They tried to give away the game several times.  But the Detroit Lions kept giving it back.  Someone had to win eventually, and it turned out to be the Giants, which eliminated the Lions from the playoffs and assured that the G-Men will have a somewhat worse draft choice.

Win, win.

Yay, yay.

Guess I need to wait a little longer for that Subway Superbowl.

Yesterday I was having brunch and couldn't help but notice you at the other table in the restaurant. I asked if I could send over a bottle of muscat or buy brunch for you, Paris and your family, they discouraged it. I understand how private you are and did not wish to make the brunch uncomfortable for you. I wanted to come over and tell you what an amazing series that you have written and how glad I am to have read it... so far. Looking forward to next book. Thank you for everything!
Today I am in Chicago and feel your football pain. Although the Bears are in control of their destiny, little hope remains beyond a first round playoff loss.

Re: brunch
That wasn't me, then. I have not been back to New York in over a year, and I've never been to Cafe Boulud.
