    I really can't take this. The Super Bowl has taken over my town. Ann Arbor is about 25 minutes from downtown Detroit. I thought I could cope with the SB being played without the Pats, but really, I can't. It's painful. EVERYTHING is Super Bowl related. I figured I could easily cheer the Steelers in this one, win it for Bettis, and be done. But I can't. It's only Tuesday. Worse yet, I'm going to the NFL Experience, and some SB stuff downtown on Friday. Please, make it stop. The only positive is that Willie is hanging out in the D this week, and I'll probably get to holler at him Friday. Is this week especially painful for anyone else? Or am I alone here?

    It's painful, but I've already begun to let the pain fade. I've changed my focus to 2006 and the ass-whoop I hope we put on every single team we face. I hope the team feels the same way. I hope they look at 2006 as a year where they're going to come back and show everyone that it won't be so simple to get rid of them. I also hope that the next time we play a game that's worked by the officiating team that worked Denver that a few of our players 'accidentally' run a few Zebras over.

    Just a normal work week here. I've heard there's some kind of game going on this weekend, but that ladies Curling match on Canadian TV is looking pretty tempting.

    "You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Brownfan80 again."

    Sorry, gave you positive Rep some time ago for something or other. :)

    Here in Massachusetts it's just the opposite. No one is talking Super Bowl. No Super Bowl signs at every business. All the Super Bowl paper plates, napkins and big bottles of popcorn at the stores are just sitting there. Untouched and collecting dust. New England is the area the Super Bowl forgot. :(

    I feel for you, Dave. It can't be easy being in the host area! It's only going to get worse, I'm afraid. But it's over soon, so stay strong!

    I remember when my husband and I lived in New York City...it was always hosting something. It was so disruptive living there and just being bombarded with events all the time. What a zoo!

    eta: Brownfan, T-shirt and Patchick are indeed green, but they are still also unknown quantities. I'm not sure that even if T-shirt could give you positive rep that it would change your status. Sadly, I think you need to be "On a Distinguished road" to give someone positive rep and have it count.

    Thanks for the info. I just wish the system wasn't so whacked with regard to new users vs established guys. I've been around for years now and I'm not green, but if a new joe schmoe signs up, they are green! whack! not that it really matters in the scheme of things, but I'm just saying.

    Yeah, but are they a green that actually matters? I wonder about this rep stuff too, namely, why do we have it at all. What purpose does it serve, really? Even if someone is red, that doesn't stop me from reading or responding to their posts. And most of the worst trolls were not red anyway, because they were newly registered users. They were green!

    Well, I'm still green and an unknown.

    But if you look at he dot by my name, its red all of the time. It says that I'm invisable.

    Must have been talking to my wife.

    I understand. I tried to tell myself, "Self, this year you'll be able to relax and enjoy the SuperBowl, instead of nearly having several heart attacks throughout the game," but it hasn't worked. I'm truly bummed and the feeling doesn't get any better as game time approaches.

    I HATE THE STEELERS.

    I don't know how this campus will handle it if a.) the Steelers win, or b.) the Steelers lose. I think it is a lose-lose situation for anyone not a Blitzburgh fan. There is going to be screaming all night no matter what....

    I HATE THEM SO MUCH.

    It really is getting awful. I was so excited to finally get the SB in Detroit, and with the Pats in it. There was definite karma- I was scheduled to work the AFC lockerroom and sidelines. But, then that incident on the 14th happened, and I couldn't stomach it. I let my buddy work the game for me, and I'm not taking this well. I'm still going to the events Friday, but in Pats gear. Hopefully the Pats that were in town earlier in the week will still be around. I guess the bright spot is that I'll go to Miami next year when the Pats are back where we belong.

    Cheer up Dave. I'll be in Ann Arbor tonight decked out in full black & gold regalia. Hide your wives and daughters.
    Seriously, I've never been to Ann Arbor. What is there to do there? (Of course activities that involve drinking heavily is a must)

    There's a lot to do in Ann Arbor. Depends on your preference. You can go on-campus and hit up a lot of college bars (tonight Scorekeepers would be the place to be. Thursday night drink specials, and all of the fine young college ladies), or if you're into a more upscale time, the Main Street area and downtown Ann Arbor are the place to be. There's a lot of great food, along with some nice bars as well. Conor O'Neil's is a favorite of mine. If you're a beer fanatic, head up to State Street, and go to Ashleys. They have pretty much any beer you could want. Again, depending on your M.O., I'd recommend taking a walk around the campus, Ann Arbor is a beautiful city. Check out the diag (right across from Ashley's), South University, the Law Quad, all pretty sweet. Pretty much, the places you're going to want to go will be on State Street, Main Street, South University, and Liberty. It's quite easy to navigate.
