Haveil Havalim #152 The Patriots Must Lose Edition


Welcome to Haveil Havalim #152 The Patriots Must Lose!!!!! Edition. Here at the Shack it has been an interesting week. My daughter has been doing her best to make me tear my hair out in clumps, or maybe it is because I subject myself to listening to idiots misuse our emergency resource systems.

Actually I heard that she is a Patriots fan. Makes sense to me.

I sometimes worry about Pre-emptive Publishing? But not in this case because The Patriots Must Lose!

It has been a busy week. My apologies if this is a little rough. All I know is that The Patriots Must Lose! One more note, 2008 marks the return to glory for my Dodgers and The Lakers.

All of you Boston fans can start tearing your clothes now because
The Patriots Must Lose! The Patriots Must Lose! The Patriots Must Lose! The Patriots Must Lose!

Enjoy the carnival and for those of you who participate in my favorite secular holiday, have fun at your Superbowl parties.

I protest this edition's name. Go PATS!!!!!

SnoopyTheGoon said...

Patriots - shmatriots - but it's a biggy! And thanks.

Leora said...

Thank you for the link.

And I agree with Carl on the name...
(I can't say I ever watch the stuff, but I support New England whatever).

Gila said...

Don't really care who wins or loses--nor am I entirely sure what is being played.

Before I commit to hosting...are these chocolate chip waffles that are being offered? Very important detail...

Janet said...

I never heard of this carnival. I guess there are just too many out there to keep track of these days.

muse said...

Smooth said...

I'm looking forward to eating all the food I'm going to serve and the commercials. Thanks for the link, Jack, and Go Giants.

Debbie said...

Wow. What a roundup. As I said in my super bowl post:

I'm rooting for the Giants and Eli Manning. However, I may change my mind when I see the uniforms the teams are wearing. I have a long-time theory, which has proven correct 99% of the time. My theory?

Whichever team wears the darkest, meanest, manliest looking uniforms -- WINS.

Don't believe me? When the new season starts, you watch and keep track. Wimpy, light, white, uniforms usually lose.

No, I'm not crazy. I'm a woman who really doesn't care about football, who enjoys the commercials, who once asked the question: "Pro bowlers? I didn't know bowling had anything to do with football!" It's true, just ask hubby.

Enjoy the game.

Go ahead, LAUGH!!! We all need a good laugh now and then.

Looks like things worked out for you.

Loralee,

I did. Thank you.

Jameel @ The Muqata said...

Jack: what could be stranger than Jameel from the Muqata, watching THE SUPERBOWL...from a hotel room in...India?

I haven't watched the superbowl in easily 30 years, and yet, I wasn't disappointed this morning, when I watched it live from my hotel this morning.

All I can say about India is that waffles and curry are simply revolting.

Anonymous said...

Thanks for the link. I guess you are happy now - the Giants won. (I will now share how clueless I am - my husband came home and said the Giants won. I asked him, won what? Football widows - make aliyah!)
