When the Packers lose (again), is it three times more depressing?

Even though there is only one of me, I certainly eat for three.

I grew up in Green Bay during the Vince Lombardi days so am not much into football now.

Football was a better game when it was played outdoors.
I recall games where the field got so muddy due to rain...that the yardlines had to be redrawn often and the uniforms got so muddy you could not read the numbers and even the announcers had a hard time figuring out who was who.

Heck, I remember seeing some games where they were playing during a snow storm. Today's players are wimps. ^_^

Snow storm were the best!
We also knew that if Green Bay was at home playing a team from the South and it was -20F the odds were very good for Green Bay.
OTOH: Not so good for GB if they had to play in the South on one of those hot and humid days.

I'm not a football fan at all which means I'm an evil heretic here in Alabamastan. I attended classes at The University of Alabama when I was in the womb and I don't care about Alabama football either. Both my parents were alumni and I attended some classes there but I care nothing about football. My father was a big football fan and when a game came on, you couldn't tear him away from the TV set. I must have a recessive gene which makes me immune to football hysteria. ^_^

1+ snow is best!
Green Bay still plays out doors (although the filed is heated from underneath).
The Cowboys still haven't forgiven the Packers for the ignominy they suffered at the "ice bowl".

Although navigating the national healthcare is definitely a mess, I was very surprised that the Social Security System worked very smoothly for me.
I went in early on a Monday morning with /no/ appointment and they said they could take me...but with no appointment it could be a long wait.
It was an hour...no big deal.
After my interview I was told that I'd receive an answer by mail in approximately 90 days.
On the 91st day I got a favorable reply...it was as simple as that.

I don't know about communism but socialism sure is. here are a few highlights from the socialists' platform from 100 years ago... ___________________
Socialists in 1912 had a strong platform upon which to base a campaign.
Here are some of the highlights from the Socialist Party Convention that took place in Indianapolis-
Tax Reform-The adoption of a graduated income tax, the increase of the rates of the present corporation tax and the extension of inheritance taxes..
(Of course, an income tax won't affect YOU, just a few of the rich)
Minimum Wage-By establishing minimum wage scales.
(That did a lot of good, didn't it? An end to poverty...)
Direct Election of President-The Election of the President and Vice-President by direct vote of the people.
Social Insurance- ..a general system of insurance by the State of all its members against unemployment and invalidism and a system of compulsory insurance of their workers, without cost to the latter, against industrial diseases, accidents and death.
(Hell, why limit it to "industrial"?)
Also in the platform was woman's suffrage, public ownership of utilities and a shortened work day.
Much of this came to pass. Other aspects of this platform may still someday be enacted.* ________________

Some cut.
The Americans who did that along with our allies eventually allowed an American president to give a Christmas speech from the White House in 1981. This is how to give a speech celebrating the birth of the Savior. http://tinyurl.com/klvqs2k (youtube) I think he said "I" once.
