Monday Musings

Dear Carolina Panthers,

I took a vacation day from work so I could attend the game yesterday. I don't think I'll ever do that again! What a miserable and pathetic game. It didn't help that I was surrounded by Buffalo Bill fans and disgruntled Panther fans. Not fun, not fun at all.

What in the world happened to you? Statistically, based on total yards, 1st down conversions, etc. we should have won that game. Now Jake...I've been defending you all year but don't think I can anymore. 3 interceptions for a league high of 13 for the year. We're not going to win games that way. And you, offensive line...don't think you're off the hook. Run your patterns and just maybe we could have averted an interception or two. Oh and Mr. Kasay...are you ill? You NEVER miss short yardage field goals. I'd be happy to send some chicken soup your way. I'll cut you a little slack...THIS TIME. As far as defense goes, where were you Mr. Peppers? Yeah, yeah, yeah, one sack. Big whoop. You're making the big bucks to put forth a little more effort than what you've been doing this year. Your performance has been abysmal to date.  I'm going to have to call your mama. Maybe she can knock some sense into you. 

Oh, management? I hope you've learned you cannot put your eggs all in one basket both offensively (Delhomme) and defensively (Peppers). First off, Jake is getting older, and we should have a QB in the wings to take over should this type of game happen again. Sorry, and I really hope I'm wrong on this, Matt Moore ain't ready. And what in the world were you thinking signing Julius Peppers when HE DIDN'T WANT TO PLAY HERE? You had to let go of some pretty solid football players in order to free up salary cap room to keep him. This season definitely shows what a boneheaded decision that was. 

We've been fortunate that we've been able to sell those tickets to the games that take place when I work (and may I say thank God that is most of the games this season). You all keep playing this way, I'm going to make you buy back the tickets we can't sell. 

Disgruntedly yours,

Mrs. Sister

PS  I have no beef with you, Steve Smith or with you, DeAngelo Williams. You both always put forth 100% effort and I enjoy catching moments of brilliance during each and every game you play. 

On a Happier Note

Lee, from Headaches, Hotflashes and Hormones awarded little ol' me with the following:

I couldn't be more thrilled. Why? Because it came from Lee. I mean, she's like one of the blogging greats! She's bent on blog domination you know. I told her if I keep getting awards like this I'll be nipping at her heels in no time. Go check her out. Her blog is quite silly and irreverent and makes for a great read. Thank you Lee!

And since I'm in a giving mood this morning I'd like to pass this on to one of my dear, dear, blogging friends, Su at This Stop Willoughby. She has been a constant support since the very beginning of this blogging venture of mine. She has also been of great support and help to me on a personal level too. Su, this one's for you, with all my heart and love.

As a Chiefs fan I can almost feel your pain on the football. But since I have no chance of attending the's "almost"

Congrats on your award! How cool!!

Ms Bibi said...

Congratulation on another award.

Great post I wish The Panthers would come and read it. Maybe the coach could learn something from you, lol

I started following football about 30 years ago when I lived in Kansas City. Love the Chiefs. Still do but my heart is with the pitiful Panthers these days. I think I'm more of a football fan than Mr. Sister is!

Charisse and Holly said...

Wow...note to self...stay on Polly's good side:) Glad you got a good laugh today. Holly at

You are just the sweetest blogger in the universe to give me such a special award! I am truly honored (and perhaps blushing a little). I ♥ you, too!

Sorry about the Panthers. I felt the same way when U of M was slaughtered on Saturday. At least I still have the Lions to root for (um, or maybe not).

Is this that game with the pointy ball? I'll watch the Superbowl, if the Steelers are in it, I guess.... if I can have some snacks.

Congrats on the award!

Maybe the Panthers will put you on the coaching staff.

Angela said...
