Staying Power

I watched in disbelief as Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler stood on the sidelines nursing a sore leg while his team dropped the National Football Conference title game to the Packers yesterday.


Like Cutler, I suffered a leg injury just before the end of the first half. My left ankle cramped up as I jumped off the sofa when the Packers made a key defensive stop.


Nevertheless, I managed to hobble to the kitchen for another glass of wine to sustain me through the second half. A little leg injury wasn’t going to keep me out of a title game.

I hope you stayed afloat long enuf. to enjoy the high times brought to us by the Jets and Steelers and watch as the blurry-eyed Steelers crawled across the finish line in an almost comatose state, leaving the Jets with what I'm sure will be a major morning-after headache. (I know, enuf. already, but I'm a Jets fan, darn.)

It sure is a good thing we Minnesotans took that Favre guy off your hands.

I'm glad the Packers won!

And sad the Jets lost.

Let me think, now. Would that be Bert Favre, or Bart Favre? I have a hard time remembering that guy.

Not sure. I still get Bart Simpson and O.J. Simpson mixed up.
