    :highvoltage: I'm very depressed...I can't understand how we snatched defeat from the jaws of victory like that. Plus ....the QB broke his hand, we played against the worst team.....I'm whining, sorry. How was your game?

    My college team AND my pro team lost. This was not a great weekend. Truthfully...I doubt it will be a good season!
    on the other hand, lol, I try to remember that most teams never become National Champions and we've been there done that more than once. DDD

    Thanks DDD, for putting that into perspective. I don't know why I care so much.

    Actually I was weaned on college football. Right on the wall above my computer is a "blanket" that was presented to my Dad honoring him as a 1926 Booster of our University football team. The players in the 20's depended on boosters to feed them, lol, and this small group of young couples provided food and support. From the late 1940's until the 70's I rarely missed a game...either on radio or in the Bowl. It was like going to church on Sunday, lol, we never missed. My brother, sisters and I cried when the team won it's first National Championshp because we all knew that was Dad's dream...and we experienced it. Awesome lifetime high. The team has it's ups and downs but it IS OUR team thru the good, bad and the ugly. I've chilled in my senior years but the loyalty remains...just like death and taxes, lol. DDD

    Good football weekend for my teams (sorry Upallnight and DDD). Michigan won yesterday!!! The Packers won today!!

    DDD- I was weaned on Pro football growing up in Green Bay and only 5 blocks from Lambeau Field. My dad loved both pro and college but couldn't get me to watch a college game no matter how hard he tried. Of course, now I love Michigan (thanks to husband for taking me to my first game when we were just friends at the time). Dad just shakes his head that I don't cheer for the Badgers or Notre Dame-lol!

    Well Im not a happy camper today because I lost big time in my fantasy football league. Ugh. My quarterback had his worst day but it wasnt so bad but my defense really hoovered badly. I went in the hole 18 points! That is really bad...lol. We start off with 30 points for defense and they managed to lose those 30 plus 18 more...really!

    UAN...Obviously I know who your team is...lol. Im so sorry that my second least favorite person on earth broke their hand. Mike was number one until Casey Anthony came along. Ohhhh he is whining about the refs on tv...gee. whimp. Its football. If they stop letting people tackle anymore they might as well make it flag football.

    Now my home team won...first time this year. I am really proud of our new quarterback. He is a rookie and has broken records this year. Really wonderful guy. I have him on my fantasy team. He had a down day today where he only threw for about 200 yards and rushed for about 60 yards. And that is a bad day. First two games he threw for over 400 yards and rushed for I dont remember how many. He is really gonna be good.

    Im assuming the fish didnt win considering I used Reggie Bush on my fantasy team and he actually went into the negative numbers!

    I will never let Tony tell me to take a player again!

    The Bills broke a 15 game losing streak against the Pats... it's a minor miracle!

    This is slightly off topic. husband's team's colors are orange and white. He loves football. The autism specialist was playing a game with the kids and noticed easy child 2 knows the color orange. She commented on she doesn't know any other 2 year olds that know orange. Then as we played the game I noticed easy child 2 calls every color orange. husband was so proud.

    Clemson won---sorry 3D if FS is your team
    Carolina beat VAndy so Mr. Sexy was happy.
    We have a mixed relationship---state rivals in the same house---it makes for lots of jokes and fun in our little small town.

    My Giants won! It's a huge rivalry between them and the Eagles...and it was an extremely exciting game...1/2 our defense is out on the DL so, it was nerve wracking because we've always been known for our fantastic defense...

    I was literally jumping off the couch - incredible!
