Sunday Blues

Football sucks. At least this season.

It is becoming clear that I am not going to get much joy from watching the NFL this year. The Jets lost again yesterday, 45-20, in humiliating fashion. They managed to hang with the Raiders for most of the first half, until muffing a punt in the last minute of the first half. It was all downhill from there. Oakland repeatedly ran the ball right up the gut of our D, through the zones where David Harris and Sheldon Richardson once patrolled. I think 0 - 16 is a real possibility.

I have more hope for the Giants, but judging by last week's loss to the Cowboys, it may be a false hope. We will see what happens tonight against the Lions.

And I can't even enjoy the pregame show any more, sad to say. For years... decades... I have been a devoted fan of ESPN's NFL COUNTDOWN show on Sunday. But last season the show lost Tom Jackson, and with it much of its appeal. And this season they have retired Chris Berman as well. After two weeks, I've had enough. I say it's spinach, and I say to hell with it.

Tea at Worldcon

That Finnish Worldcon wasn't all vodka and beer. It was also tea!

Maybe you missed the fun in Helsinki. If so, you certainly missed my guest appearance on TEA & JEOPARDY, Emma and Peter Newman's Hugo (and Alfie) Award winning podcast.

But have no fear, it's on line now:

Enjoy. I know I did.
