The real Ted Drewes.


DC isn't (now) bad for a food/booze scene, better in certain eras than others. Loved our pied-a-terre when we had one there.


Chicago - our recent visit made us wonder if we shouldn't go more often.


San Francisco.  Fond memories, but every time we go it seems to be more fucked up than the previous time.


Burlington - just really like it here. California in the 70s, but without the smugness or smogness. 


Portland, ME - another nice New England city. Good food.


Nashville's nice.


Haven't been to Vegas in a decade.


Boston - if we have another need to be there (visiting friends, a concert, etc.) it's nice enough.


Seattle - also been too long.


Is Montreal in the States?

Let's say I'm certainly worried about the Chiefs.

those are just counting stats and points scored isn't a great counting stat. That's not a very useful  way to look at the data. 


But I think points scored is a great stat if it is comparing it, game by game, to how many points the opposing team scored, no?

I guess I have some stuff to worry about since I don't understand all the stats. Don't play fantasy football. Just root for one team. 


One of the teams still playing. (And the 'boys ain't.)


As the pundits on all the pre-game shows will undoubtedly say, it's why they play the game.


But seriously, take a guy like George Kittle. I think he caught one pass in the NFC championship game. How do the stats account for his insane blocking? Or the last game of the regular season, when he carried like 4 defenders down the field after catching a pass?

I guess there are different ways to look at stats...




And as we all know, not just offense wins these games.


But we'll let Stone bask in the glory of his .500 team.
