Have I mentioned that Earthlink and Verizon suck ass?

Well, I am still not really online, but thanks to my sister-in-law’s laptop and the ancient wonder of dial-up connection I can get my to 521 e-mails (I’m sure it would have been more if Earthlink hadn’t deactivated my account for a couple of days) downloaded in about three or four hours. I hope nobody is trying to call me.

Moving my internet service from Florida to Virginia has been a less than satisfying experience so far.

However, besides this minor glitch and the moving truck getting a flat tire, things have gone pretty well. Most of the time it hasn’t even been that cold. Right now it is 53.9 degrees. Not bad for January.

Here are the main differences between Washington and Tampa so far:
– There is way more traffic here. Everybody works and lives everywhere.
– Tampa has more gas stations, fast food and grocery stores.
– It appears that Northern Virginia has a Home Depot for every 50 people that live here.
– Not nearly as many people in Florida think that Joe Gibbs is the Second Coming.

Now here is a question for you guys. What is the proper football etiquitte? Do I have to root for the Redskins now that they are my hometeam and since my beloved Bucs have been knocked out of the playoffs? Should I root for the Colts to win it all becuase somewhere deep down I still have football feelings for Tony Dungy? Do I root for the Broncos and John Lynch?

Well, I have missed you all, and if all goes as planned I will really be back today, tomorrow, or you will get a post in a few days from Becky or Erin telling you that Cox also sucks ass.

  1. yay, missed you too!!

  2. Welcome back! Sort of. Should I send you some more e-mail?

  3. I live with someone who would tell you to root for Denver.

  4. Root for whoever you like. I was never much of an Indians fan, myself.

    Oops. Redskins.

  5. Sarah, there is not a rule that says you HAVE to root for the sports team of the town you live in. (If there was, I would’ve been forced to become a Cubs fan a long time ago… and I would rather die that have that happen)

    As a new person surrounded by uncertainty, you could root for the ‘Skins the rest of the playoffs to help break the ice with your new townsfolk.

    Of course, that’s just my opinion, I could be wrong.

    BTW, I still think your boys got hosed on that TD call.

  6. Heeellllo From Laptop land! Nice to hear/see/read you!

    I’m not a fan of any team here in SoCal. I would like to be, for at least ONE of them…but I haven’t found one that does it for me yet. IF I were to find one, I would still root for my hometeam OVER that team whenever they played.

  7. Well, of course I root for The Bucs when they play… but I’m talking for the rest of the playoffs. Normally, I just root against The Rams (no offense Kemp), Kurt Warner or any Martz anything – but none of them are around either.

  8. Verizon sucks in three specific ways.

    1) So hard.
    2) So bad.
    3) Wicked bad.

  9. Yeh! Sarah is back!! WOO-HOO!!!
    I vote NO to the Redskins idea–then again, I just like to cause a fuss.

  10. No. I don’t think you should. Unless you feel some sort of…something…for them .

  11. Sarah,
    I believe you need to root for the Denver Broncos because you live 10 minutes from my house and I know how to simultaneously drive and hurl a flaming bag of poo. Or if you root for the wrong team, I won’t bring you bacon. HA!

  12. Obviously, the right choice is to root for the Colts and anyone who beats New England.

    As a multiple time transplant into a land that was not my own….I can tell you that a fanatical devotion to your team is the only thing that will separate you from the animals.

    Well, that and accessorizing.

  13. And your cerebral cortex, of course.

  14. Hi Sarah! Missed you :-)

  15. So it is opposable thumbs, my Simeon Rice jersey and a nice pair of earrings?

  16. Oh yeah, and Go Broncos! (this is me avoiding the flaming poo)

  17. Steeler Nation will welcome you with open arms, Sarah. The great thing is, no matter where you move, you’ll always find Pittsburgh fans. Read this to see what I mean.

    Me, I had no choice. I married into a Steelers family.

    GO STEELERS!

  18. Lumpyhead's Aunt Bob says:

    I’ve lived in or near Washington since 1993 (when I convinced lumpyhead’s mom she NEEDED to move to DC whether she had a job or not). I HATE the redskins. Even if, as some do, you imagine that they are referring to the toughness and versitility of the redskin potato, you can’t get past the fact that the ‘skins take over the media–and not in a good way.

    On the day that Mother Teresa died, the new redskins stadium (now FedEx Field) opened. Mother Teresa was below the fold on the front page of the post.

    I don’t even have an NFL team. I grew up in South Carolina before there were “Carolina Panthers.” But I love the NFL. My husband loves the Eagles — I can love the Eagles. Lumpyhead’s mom loves the vikes; i love the vikes. My sis loves the Raiders; I’m in the Raider Nation. Just don’t ask me to love Burgandy and/or Gold.

    Go Bucs.

    I hope I ony posted this once. If not, delete my ass.

  19. Aunt Bob,

    I have plenty of Bucs jerseys. Feel free to borrow one any time – especially if they play the Eagles and you can upset your husband.
