I heart sports

Last night’s match-up between the Saint and the Vikings wasn’t quite the super exciting game we’d been anticipating, but I’m pleased as punch with the result.

This is pretty much the best time of year for sports. Football season is just starting up, with all of its promise and pressure, and the US Open — my favorite tennis tournament — is going strong with the finals this weekend.

And then there’s a story like this, which reminds everyone that sports aren’t just for fun or for money or for fame.  There’s often really something important going on, as well.

    I love sports, too, but yesterday’s Packer game…let’s just say that I can’t take too many more games like that this year!

    I know. I was saying, “Why do we do this to ourselves? Every year. We know it’s so stressful!” But then when they do win….Hooray!

    well, i see that your website is up and running again, after it was banned by the chinese authorities. or perhaps it was because I was in China that I couldn’t access your website. I think it is because the words “kateandgracie” are banned on the Chinese internet. Anyway, the point is that you cursed the Lions yesterday—can you really deny it? First the greatest quarterback in the history of the lions modern franchise (yes, I know it is only his second year, but then how many Lions quarterbacks can you name?…yes, see now what I’m getting at? We have been playing this whole time without a quarterback!), and then the most impossible officials’ call where the ref is like, well yes, but you haven’t yet considered the *process* of the catch, and everyone simply lays down saying, yes, you see the ref, with all of his training, he knows, it’s a process, good work cameras and ref. it is no longer a game, it is pixelated robotic image creation system with algorithmic accuracy. you see, catching a football is a process much like drafting legislation or making ketchup. And as you see, he never screwed the top onto the ketchup bottle, No Touchdown. Oh yes, i see, you are right. it is *quite* the process. Cursed, i tell you. Cursed.

    I know, I know! One, how could the lovely words kateandgracie be banned in China!? Outrageous. Two, I was still talking about the process today at lunch with my friend Heather. I thought instead of inventing a new rule such as “the process,” they should just have called it what it really is: sorry folks, we can’t have the Lions winning; we just can’t. It goes against everything we know about this league. The Lions winning a road game at Soldier Field? Not going to happen on my watch! It’s all about the process and anyone who tells you differently should be banned in China.

    I saw that Charles Woodson, is he drinking Benjamin Button’s water?! (in addition to his own wine, google that stuff) Sheeshes! He seems to just be able to run faster and faster. Maybe he will be Wisconsin’s new favorite son since it seems like Brett F. has forgotten where he left his mind!
