    @ Joe: If you mean ottod, he (or she) said “Grandma lives at home” - not “Grandma lives in their home.”

    Small change, big difference.

    Grandma@home. Everyone using an “@home” e-mail address actually lives in the same house! True! (It’s a very big house.)

    There’s also been no indication that I can recall that Adam lives in California. Somebody suggested that a couple of days ago because Adam’s lifestyle and attitudes are somehow “Californian” (why? - because he drinks a lot of coffee? because he’s computer-savvy? because he’s married to a blonde?), but wherever he lives gets snow in the winter, and he’s a devout hockey fan - specifically, he roots for the Jersey Devils. I’ve always figured he lives back East somewhere, but he’s probably just in upstate Comicvania…

    Love of soccer must be on one of those genes that skips generations.

    I once had a guy pretty much chew me out because I said I never read the Sports section in the paper. He told me I was deliberately shutting myself from a whole sphere of human experience, that I more or less had an obligation to keep up with how the local teams were doing, in the same way there’s an obligation to keep informed about current events (some would argue that that’s not an obligation, either). I was unconvinced. I probably should have asked him if he kept up with all the reviews of the Arts scene.

    Yeah, World Cup is a huge event globally, and it creeps into my consciousness without any particular effort or consent on my part, but I don’t mind. I’m not offended when other people enjoy something that I don’t enjoy, or don’t enjoy things that I enjoy immensely. People who complain that they “can’t escape” World Cup hype are whistling into the wind as much as those who complain that they “can’t escape” Oscar hype when March rolls around.

    If what you’ve posted is in error, Joe, what’s wrong with correcting you? You have no qualms about correcting what you perceive as others’ mistakes.

    And if you don’t want to be mocked, well, the remedy is entirely within your hands.

    Joe, GET A LIFE! Stop being inane, judgmental, pompous, humorless, and pedantic.

    Actually, just stop being humorless. Being inane, judgmental, pompous, and pedantic wouldn’t be so bad if you were funny about it.

    (Intentionally funny, I mean.)

    Nice try, fritzoid, but it’s falling on deaf ears. I’ve tried too, but all I got was to fall below the Mendoza Line of “Joe“‘s acceptance.

    Jascat says “soccer is so boring.” IMO, American so-called football (so-called because they hardly use their feet on the ball at all) is the boring one–half the time is in the huddle. And the two-minute warning means nothing useful in terms of actual time till the end of the game.

    Go Team Go! Go! The Youth will lead the way but won’t be as funny until the bickering starts in Red Marker Pencil Land. Think of the Nazis; Burn down the forum. I Cheer For the Underdog at all times;
