Veteran's Day

Hats off to anyone reading who has ever worn the uniform of the Armed Forces of The United States of America. Thank you for helping to keep this country of ours free.

"On any given Sunday..."

The full quote is that "In the NFL, on any given Sunday, any one team can beat any other team", which is, I think, actually debatable. The Chargers host the Indianapolis Colts today. The Colts are favored by a whopping three points, which means the odds makers didn't watch the Chargers against the Vikings last week.

The Chargers are playing at home, however, in a nationally televised game, and they are royally pissed about how they embarrased themselves last week. I'm going to go out on a limb and predict a Chargers win.

That's because I have faith, because I believe. That's because I'm stupid.
But really, you don't quit on your team just because they play a bad game. Well, okay, several bad games. The Chargers are still my team and I will still be watching the game and wanting for them to win.

And believing that they will win.

"...and on Monday"

Or they will accept a gift. Who's birthday was it?

Now all we need is a head coach, offensive coordinator, quarterback, some wide receivers who can actually run patterns, and a defense that will play four quarters instead of merely two. Think of what would happen.

    Congrats to all veterans... past and present, peacetime and wartime.

    And, no, you;re not stupid for having faith in your team. I have faith someone will take the Patriots down a notch...

    Bruce, good luck, but FAT CHANCE! About the patriots, I mean. They look better every week! Has any NFL team ever gone the whole season undefeated?
    As to the veterans, thank you Mom, Uncle Bill, Mark, and Grandpa (may his memory be eternal)! I am sure that Bruce will echo me when I say that one of the great sadnesses of my life is that I was 4F, and not able to "wear the uniform of the Armed Forces of The United States of America".

    Speaking of--does any one know how to recover my password to my blogger account?
