Sunday, October 18th, 2009

I am not a good sports fan — I don’t like “exciting” games. “Exciting” means the game is close, which means there’s a chance the team I’m rooting for might lose. I love games like today: 45-0 going into the second half, 59-0 final score. In the snow! It felt like Christmas came early, I […]

NaNoWriMo – day 9

And if you follow football at all, you know that they’ve been in the news this week for more than just their amazing season […]

Go Patriots!

First, I think the Patriots 16-0 season is awesome, even if they never win another game. Anyone who says it’s meaningless if they don’t win the Superbowl, I say, “pfft.” “There are no meaningless games if you’re playing in them.” (-Bill Parcells?) In honor of the Patriots, here’s an SGA story that has football in […]
