NFL vs. 9/11: NFL wins!

From an AP story, as reported on AccessNorthGeorgia.com:
"The movie ["The Path to 9/11"] was beaten soundly in the ratings by the regular-season debut of NBC's "Sunday Night Football," matching Peyton Manning of the Indianapolis Colts against younger brother Eli of the New York Giants. The National Football League game had an estimated 20.7 million viewers, while "The Path to 9/11" had 13 million, according to Nielsen Media Research."


I am glad to see I was not the only one tired of all the 9/11 hype.

You know, Ed... (*SMILE*)... SOME of us - including YOU I hope - can chew gum and walk at the same time.

I watched NEITHER the 9/11 "docudrama" NOR the sniveling, incompetent, loser Giants (*GRIN*). (Are you "feeling" my disappointment in their level of play - or lack thereof?) My wife and I watched "Prison Break" and "Vanished."

THAT SAID, Ed... even if it had been the glorious (*SHOUT IT OUT WITH ME, ED!*) *J*E*T*S* JETS! JETS! JETS! playing last night... I still would have had the entire day to take care of all my personal and business obligations while attending a 9/11 Mass in the morning and a town service in the park at night. (*SMILE*)

Bill,
It would NOT have been a 9/11 mass. It would have been a 9/10 mass. ;)

No... Ed... (*SCRATCHING MY HEAD*)... Catholic masses are actually held EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK.

You didn't know that?
