    And, best wishes of the season to you and yours!

    Thank the powers that be we’re not in this tough patch alone. There’s been lots of good company in this journey.

    To EW and bmaz and all the wonderful people who write to this site, my thanks and my best wishes for a few peaceful cozy nights this week. I can’t contribute, but I do learn so much from you all, and I take heart when I see brave and smart people determined to take democracy back from the crooks and liars.

    Every day is a celebration of life no more so than any day whether it is some religious;
    Every day I wish all creatures wellness. Keep breathing and be mindful of what you are thinking so you can observe yourself and be enlighted.
    Existence, knowledge and bliss to you. You get one trip enjoy it.

    Holiday best wishes to everyone here at EW/FDL.

    I recall that when I was still in high school – Nixon was president – I expressed the wish that Christmas was a holiday more inclusive of other faiths. Careful what you wish for, folks! It may come true!

      The list, like the beat, goes one:
      Edward Teller
      and did I mention
      Tom Brady and the Pats!
      Ok, also the Packers (for Phred).

    I was going to raise my glass to toast those responsible for bringing me to this particular corner of the blogosphere, except that in my case, that would mean thanking Scooter Libby.
    Commuted felons excluded, here’s to all those who have made this corner of the virtual world a second home. It may not or ever be a wonderful Jimmy Sterwartian world, but it is far more hopeful a place than the one I inhabited before meeting you all:
    I raise my glass to
    Posters, all!!
    Our local troll, that is, as long as he/she/it does not demand religion specific wishes, this is one night where we can all be on the same page.
    Valerie and Joe!!
    and because it matters to EW,
    Tom Brady and the Pats!!

    Please consider this a Holiday Trash Talk thread by all means; that is exactly why I threw it up. EW was, thankfully, enjoying herself and the holidays and I thought that all could use a thread to say whatever was on their mind. You guys are the finest out there, and I am craggy enough that I don’t idly say such things without truly meaning it. Again, cheers!

    Thanks guys for all the work you do.
    A great outlet for my rants (void were prohibited).
    Emptywheel, Blogger, most glorious

    And did I tell you I love Trash Talking with pigskin consultants
    across the nation (Your results may vary; contents may shift

  10. freepatriot says:

    we gotta use a recycled thread for trash talkin ???

    what’s goin on here ???

    since when did we establish some kind of “Trash talking zone” around here ???

    what are we, a bunch of repuglitards or something ???

    come on people, lets rise up against this oppression who’s with me ???

    (looking around for support)

    aw, fuck it

    Purdue is kicking ass on Central Michigan, 21 to 6 with 11:40 left in the second quarter, and Purdue just had another touchdown call off because of penalty, so Purdue has to kick a field goal

    11:32 to go, 24 to 6 Purdue

    we’ll be back after these messages …

    wanna bet the management is glad when this “Year from Hell for Michigan’s teams” ends ???

  11. bmaz says:

    Maybe not. It is now hoops season, and it looks a little bleak for Big Blue. The Fab Five ain’t walking through those doors…. They did just hire a good coach though.

  12. freepatriot says:

    Central Michigan tried to make a great come-back, but fell 3 points short

    51 to 48, what a game

    I guess the magic list ain’t so magical after all

    next up, bowl game number 8, the Holiday Bowl, Arizona St vs Texas at 2:00 pm pacific time (you east coasters will have to ADD three hours to that time to figure it out)

    go Az State

    (did I ever mention that I don’t like texas much ??? not just the school either)

    btw, If I over dose on football over the next week, just tell the rescuers to put a tape of a baseball game in the VCR, and I should recover enough to put the football game back on

  13. bmaz says:

    Freepatriot! My friend and fellow Sun Devil fan for the night! Is the first team listed for each bowl game on your list still winning every game? Because ASU is the first listed….

  14. freepatriot says:

    central Michigan broke the string

    could be related to the number 7 or something (I never really trusted that number anyway)

    so the left side of the column is 6 – 1

    Go Sun Devils

  15. freepatriot says:

    definitely 10 minutes to football

    guess I made a mistake about that start time upthread

    shit happens when ya party naked

  16. freepatriot says:

    something’s wrong here

    I’m beginning to think this thread is the problem

    somehow, this thread has offended the primordial ooze, or something

    now the magic list don’t work no more

    we need a new thread

    one that don’t offend the primordial ooze

    (btw, the “primordial ooze” is what the frozen tundra is when it ain’t frozen or tundra)
