It's Complicated


Don't Cry for Me, Tony Romo

My apologies to Nancy Meyers, Meryl Streep, et al. No, I'm not trying to optimize my SEO, nor do I wish to goose my stats in Google Analytics. I just want to explain why I might have inflamed some passions on Twitter yesterday.

First of all, re: that Twitter reference. Yes, I'm on Twitter. MrsScribe is my handle; please follow me.

Now that I've got that out of the way, let me say that I've been a Tweeter (Twitterer? Twit?) for several months. But it's taken me that long to "get" it. But this past weekend's NFL playoffs solidified the Meaning of Twitter for moi.

Secondly, my apologies to Susan, over at My 2 Boyz. She's a Cheesehead from Sheboygan, WI. For those of you who aren't clued in, that means Susan & her fellow Sheboyganites are ardent Green Bay Packers fans. As well they should be. I'm a Packer-Backer, myself.

Susan Tweeted fervently this past weeked, and last, as well. A whole week ago, she urged her beloved Pack to pull one out over the Arizona Cardinals. I was with her all the way on that. Yesterday, however, Susan's path diverged from mine. She Tweeted (Twittered? Twitted?) in favor of America's (alleged) Team, the Dallas Cowboys. See, the Cowpokes shot it out with the Minnesota Vikings in an NFC matchup.

And everyone knows that died-in-the wool Packermaniacs such as Susan hate~detest, abhor~those dern Minnesota Vikings.

Everyone in Packerland, that is, except for moi, & a whole herd of fellow Brett Favre fans.

I'm one of the few~the proud?~Packers Fans who have stuck by Brett since he parted ways with The Pack 2 seasons ago. Without going into all the details (it's complicated, remember?), I took Brett's side in the dispute with Packers' management. And I bought his jersey when he became a New York Jet. The only reason I don't have a Vikings jersey with Number 4's name emblazoned on the back is because Mr. Fairway~who was born a Packers Fan & would rather die today than ever root for the Vikings~probably would divorce (or kill) me if I brought anything that color purple into the house.

But I digress. This post was supposed to be about Twitter. And Tweeting. Remember?

I had fun Twitting Susan for supporting Big D yesterday. I'll have a great deal of fun Tweeting about Ol' Number 4 when he faces NOLA next Sunday. And as much as I love New Orleans, I know in my heart-of-hearts Who Dat Be Gonna Beat Dem Saints.

My Peeps say I'm a Fair-Weather Fan. I prefer to refer to myself as a Favre-Weather Fan. And I'll be rooting for him again next Sunday, even if it means that Mr. Fairway might force me to sleep in the dog house. That's metaphorical, don'tcha know. High School English Teacher & all that janx.

I'm a native Dallasite, you see. A converted Cowboys fan (I told you it was complicated! ). When Jessica Simpson dated Tony Romo, I understood the significance of that union more than most. She's from Dallas; he's from Wisconsin. Ironic? No, but darned coincidental...

And when they broke up, I took the dissolution of the relationship as a bad sign for Big D.

Don't cry for me, Tony Romo. You dumped your GF the day before her birthday. And Brett Favre dumped you yesterday. In fact, the Vikes knocked your beady little eyes right out of your head.

One more thing...in the wake of the Jets win over San Diego, I guess I'll be wearing that #4 Brett Favre Jets jersey to Our Humble High School tomorrow. And reveling in the irony of that as well, sports fans!

So, until we meet again...I'll see y'all on Twitter next Sunday, hear?

I loathe football and even more I hate the fact that my husband pretends to care as soon as we inch closer to the super bowl.

Quasi Serendipita said...

I wondered what all that was about. I'm pretty clueless about American football :)

miss jo said...

Clearly, Tono Romo is no Brett Favre, whose story alone has given me reason to pay attention....Also, only twits twittered.

Vodka Logic said...

Since the Pats got embarassed out of the playoffs I have been divided who to root for. My bestie is from Indy but I do like NO for doing so well.

I'll see you on twitter @LauraBlue58

Elizabeth a.k.a. Type A Mommy said...

Wow. I'm pretty clueless about football (by choice). Sounds pretty soap opera-like to me! Go...whichever team you cheer for!! I got confused!

Vodka Mom said...

here a twitter, there a twitter, everywhere a twitter twitter.

CJ said...

All sounding Greek to me! I am clueless about American football. But I do know the English league thanks to my bro! But the post was too tweet!

Yaya said...

I don't know, I just can't get on to Twitter, as hard as I've tried.

kys said...

I deleted my Twitter account because I was hacked twice and it was really embarrassing. (Forgive me if I already told you this one or three times. Can't keep comments straight in my pea brain.)

{ Persis Shah } said...

i am on twitter...but its rather cold out there as compared to facebook.

im pretty oblivious to football (by choice ofcourse)

thanks for stopping by today...i always look forward to your new posts...xo

Jayde said...

I'm not much of a football fan unless you count all the 7th Grade games I watched this year because my son played.

As for twitter, I don't mess with it much, I have an auto tweet when I post a new blog, but that's about all I do.

TeachJ said...

Had fun Tweeting with you and others during the games. Go Vikings, beat those Saints.

To your commenters about Twitter: I too didn't get it at first and let twitter lie vacant for a long time. Then I got into chatting with a few people via Twitter, and it grew.

I hit a wall around 150 followers and found it too confusing, but then I realized you don't have to read every Tweet. it's not a conversation, but more like a big room at a party. You can zip in and out of several topics or just listen.

blueviolet said...

I just followed you on twitter but I shan't talk football. I don't even get it.

The Football Wife said...

I choose my football teams based on who has the cuter quarterback. I'm sure it drives my husband mad...

BLOGitse said...

football? no thanks!
twitter yes but not football or any other sport...
anyway,
I hope your goal for this post is what you wished...

JDaniel4's Mom said...

We watched the game. I though Brett Favre did a great job as did his team. Thanks for stopping by.

Susie said...

Brett still looks weird in purple!

Flory said...

I'm an Eagles fan, and I was happy to see the Vikings stick it to the Cowboys.

Tracy P. said...

I might be the only one who followed that whole thing, but I'm a grinnin'. Too bad I don't tweet. I made chicken wild rice soup yesterday. I'm holding out on the beer cheese for super bowl Sunday. So how about a compromise--a pink #4 with that little ol' Vikes logo on the sleeve?

And purple is TOTALLY his color. :-)

Dr.John said...

In my house two support the Vikings and one doesn't now that Green Bay is out. I never twitter.

my2boyz said...

LOL!!! Thanks! I was laughing so hard reading your post about or Tweets..twitts..whatever...and just so you know...Real men to do wear purple..just saying! See you next week on Twitter..I will be the one cheering on the Saints..also glad you were about to wear your #4 Jets Jersey...untill next week friend.. :)

Betty Manousos:cutand-dry.blogspot.com said...

I don't know a lot of American football.I love it though.
hugs

Tony Romo is a good NFL quarterback, but the difference between him and the elite quarterbacks of the league becomes apparent every post-season.

Hello.

A bank is a financial institution that accepts deposits and channels those deposits into lending activities. Banks primarily provide financial services to customers while enriching investors. Government restrictions on financial activities by banks vary over time and location. Banks are important players in financial markets and offer services such as investment funds and loans. In some countries such as Germany, bank have historically owned major stakes in industrial corporations while in other countries such as the United States bank are prohibited from owning non-financial companies. In Japan, banks are usually the nexus of a cross-share holding entity known as the keiretsu. In France, bancassurance is prevalent, as most banks offer insurance services (and now real estate services) to their clients.

The level of government regulation of the banking industry varies widely, with countries such as Iceland, having relatively light regulation of the banking sector, and countries such as China having a wide variety of regulations but no systematic process that can be followed typical of a communist system.[url=http://projectcontrol.v3host.nl]CLICK HERE[/url]

To be a good charitable being is to be enduring a make of openness to the world, an gift to trusteeship aleatory things beyond your own control, that can lead you to be shattered in unequivocally extreme circumstances pro which you were not to blame. That says something remarkably important with the prerequisite of the righteous compulsion: that it is based on a conviction in the fitful and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a weed than like a sparkler, something kind of fragile, but whose acutely particular beauty is inseparable from that fragility.

To be a adroit benign being is to procure a make of openness to the in the seventh heaven, an ability to trust undeterminable things beyond your own restrain, that can front you to be shattered in very exceptionally circumstances for which you were not to blame. That says something exceedingly impressive relating to the fettle of the ethical passion: that it is based on a corporation in the fitful and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a weed than like a treasure, something fairly tenuous, but whose extremely special beauty is inseparable from that fragility.
