very cool story.
Agreed, very cool. Sgt. ROck comic books used to tell stories about that stuff.

Hey, Ricky! I come here to vent about my crazy-ass in-laws. I hide with Jamwow when people get mean on here.

I have a husband, 2 dogs, I'm a computer nerd, and I play hockey.

I don't normally speak up when someone's givin it to the dog, I just enjoy the show, but are you really gonna make a joke about gays and athletes and act all surprised when someone does not get it, then get all stats'y when dog makes joke about hockey? Really?
I looked up your Harris poll on favorite sport.
36% Pro football
13% baseball
13% college football
8% Auto Racing
5% Pro basketball
5% college basketball
5% hockey
Really? You're getting all offended over a hockey joke and gonna hang your hat on 5%?
And 500,000 playing hockey? Compare that to 17.5 million playing football(not including college and the pros). Lighten up.
How about you lighten up, Chief? Who ever said I was "all offended?" To be offended I would have to care, and it would have to be something more meaningful than Mutt's opinion on the popularity of hockey. I was bustin' his chops and just pointing out another of his stupid statements.

If you really want to get into it, then I have to note that I like how you ignored the other information I provided and want to focus on 5%. That 5% is still the same as both pro and college basketball. And I believe basketball was invented, where? Oh, that's right, here. And hockey is just as popular. BTW, since you apparently don't get satire, my getting all statsy was making fun of Mutt's continued baseless statements and his continued hollow cries of "source please."

You're just itchin' for a fight, arent' ya'?

As far as the gay joke is concerned, even Race got it (and acknowledged getting it), and he hates my guts. If you've been paying attention to my past statements about gays, you'd know where I stand. I'm quite comfortable with my record in tha regard. On executing ship captains for gross negligence, eh, but on gays I am completely comfortable.

Which, speaking of... J and I had a rational discussion about SIL and her fiance coming home this weekend. I'm pushing for not the *whole* weekend and we sit down and have a chat about developing her interpersonal skills.

They've not spent a weekend on campus in 5 weeks at this point. I think that's redonk. Our house, then his parent's house for spring break (2 weekends) then our house again this coming weekend.

Is everyone ready for the conclave to begin? There are actually some guys in the office who are gambling on it just to keep it interesting. I think they are betting on which country, how many ballots, glasses/no glasses, gray hair/no gray hair and over/under 5'9". I put $5 each on Spain, 7, glasses, no gray and over.

The tone of your letter seemed pretty offended to me. As if joking about hockey was a slap to YOUR face.

It really wasn't any more of a 'statement' than your gay joke. It was a joke. The fact that you had to deconstruct it and bust out the popularity stats tells me you failed to see it as such. Most people just chuckle a bit when they read a joke.

Less so than you were in your response to the dog.

If you were paying attention, you'd note that I also got that it was a joke and defended it as such, much the same way that I am with the dog and his hockey joke.

Might be the sources you follow. My start page yahoo and they have a main module that has something like 48 rotating stories. Can't say that I've noticed an abundance of pope stories showing up.

My start page is google. I would make it topix, but then I would have to admit I have a problem.
