So close. . .

Fucking Dallas Cowboys. . .:-(

When Romo threw that last second interception, my dream of getting brutally murdered in A Dance with Dragons evaporated. Losing isn't that bad. But losing to the hated Giants, that's something else. Cowboys fans saw it coming, of course. Losing steam at the end of the season wasn't a good sign. Meanwhile, New York finished stronger and looked pretty damn good against Tampa Bay last week. Only to lose in the blizzard of Green Bay next week, but what the heck?

Man, I so wanted to die in the next ASOIAF volume!;-) That pisses me off a LOT more than the football game. It will be interesting to see what George will make me read. . .

So damn close. . .

Sorry, man. Thought of you as soon as I saw the final score. Maybe now he can finish the book, seeing how the uncertain fate of Sir St-Denis has been holding up the entire series.

It was like cheering on Stalin to beat Hitler when watching that game. If only the Redskins had won last, it would have been even sweeter if they would have won this week as well ;)

But look positively on this - you could get an excellent book to read and maybe Martin will feel generous and still have you appear, maybe as a midget servant, like on Fantasy Island? :P

Here comes a healthy dose of Terry Goodkind, Pat. *grins*

What a close game! Man I was totally ready to read all about your gruesome death too! Hopefully George will still do something with ya though.

Yeah, maybe you can choke on a turkey leg or something in the next Dunk & Egg story, haha.

It's very sad that I was rooting for the hated Cowboys just because of your bet with GRRM.

All these evil teams in the NFC playoffs this year. Dallas, NY Giants, Packers. What's a sane Bears fan to do??

Well, here's to the spygating Pats to win it all, if only to do something historic and shut up the '72 Dolphins.

Oh, and for the record, if Jessica Simpson wanted me to go to Mexico with her..... I'd go and have an empty-headed good time. :-)

I thought of you too, Pat. This is where I come to see if Dallas won when I miss a game. I fell asleep during half time yesterday. I'm totally bummed. Why have they choked during the playoffs for the last two years? Rat Bastards. And Romo and Jessica? Don't get me started. I still love them though and will root for them for years to come.

As a long time Cowboys fan I was sorry to see Dallas lose. It didn't surprise me either, it seemed like it was on the horizon. As an overall football fan I love the idea of seeing Brett Favre play one more time at home in the playoffs, so the lose was bittersweet more than bitter.

Personally, I despise Dallas almost as much as I do New England so I was rooting for New York :) Plus, as a football fan, I like seeing new matchups and I'd rather see Green Bay vs NY than GB vs. Dallas again...

Robert said...

Well, I just realized that Green Bay & NY have already played each other, but since that was so long ago (week 2), I'd still rather see that matchup :)

George owns you.

Completely off topic, but if anyone is looking for a way to get youngsters interested in the fantasy genre, Nick Jr. has a new Backyardigans movie, Tale of the Mighty Knights premiering tonight. Here is the link to the New York Times review.

I'm planning to watch tonight with my 4-year old and 2 year-old. They already like dragons and castles. Hopefully this will get them interested in goblins and knights as well.

Ah what eloquent prose.

That'll teach you, just desserts for ranting against lefties!! :-)

I'll drink a glass of schardenfreude in you honour!
