Blue Monday

That's the banner headline on the local paper.

Imagine if you were my colleague, who has a Seahawks pennant on his office wall and a murder trial starting today. Poor guy.

Thank goodness Animal Planet re-ran Puppy Bowl II after the game. Sancho's right: that Barry the poodle deserved a good thumping. I'm a springer spaniel fan myself.

Fortunately, to get over that other game, here on the Sound we have Handy Talking Points For Super Bore Monday:

"That old line about cockroaches and Keith Richards surviving a nuclear holocaust? I'm betting on the roaches now."

and the satisfaction that we can

"look on the bright side: if there hadn't been a few bad calls and we'd lost anyway, there'd be no excuse."
