On vacation, we ran into a LOT of people from New England, and a fair number of folks from NY and PA. One guy from Buffalo was a Skins fan (?), and started telling me Ben was "nothing special." I didn't argue it, because for one, he was obviously mentally deficient, and two, why ruin the relaxed vibe?
I'll bet he thought Jason Campbell was just as good, if not better.
Did you ask him if the game on the 2nd was the first game he's seen Ben play?
Nah, I just dropped it. I had better things to attend to.
Oh, the irony was that most of the NE folks were pretty cool. One guy from Massachusetts was actually a lifelong Giants fan, and understood the whole thing about the Patriots fans being condescending assholes.
Met a couple of brown sugars from Maryland our last full day, and we were having a nice chat when I realized that might make them Ravens fans. Luckily, not. One was indifferent, the other (fucking smoking, BTW) was a Skins fan. we laughed about what dicks Eagles fans are.
It was funny, they have this one central TV outside near the pool. Sunday, all the dudes were clustered in there. I saw about a quarter of the Colts fiasco, some from the 2H, and most of the 4Q. I gotta say, if we have to lose I'd rather be in Aruba. Takes a helluva lot of the sting out of it. AJ, you might actually save money watching all the games there. Figure the cost of all those remotes...
