J-E-T-S Jets! Jets! Jets!

Yes, my Jets are playing the Steelers in tonight's AFC Championship game.
One game away from the Super Bowl.

Funny, I'm not as excited about this game as I was about the New England game.
Partly because I like the Steelers - except for their QB, I think he's a hulking piece of trash
I have liked the Steelers since the 70s - man that was a team

I can live with the Jets losing today
I wanted the win against the Patriots and I got it

Please don't tell Hope or my son that I said that

We went out for a pre-game breakfast this morning ...

Even the crayon was green
And Dad discovered that riffling through his wallet would keep Hope entertained for at least 10 minutes





And here's myMicro-Fiction Monday


“Hey Sully”
“Morning Sam”
“Jets are gonna win tonight ya know”
“If ya believe that Sam I got a bridge to sell ya”

Yes! Jets! I have the Packers/Bears game on and the Packers have just scored already! Go Green!
Here in Seattle we hate the Steelers because of Super Bowl XL, where the officials beat us and gave the game to the "Stealers". We will not forget or forgive!
Hope is adorable, as usual.

Fun MM and I should have known you'd come up with the perfect one for the day! You clever one, you!! Hope you and Hope have a yellin' good time! Give em' hell, Jets!

Hahaha, we'll see...I'm a Steeler fan and have to agree; I don't care of Big Ben. I use to until he turned into a womanizer and felt he was above the law. However, hoping he redeems himself.
Anyway, my husband is rooting for the Jets and my sone and I the Steelers...it should be a fun evening.

ds said...

Even though we bleed Giants blue, we'll be green tonight...ought to be Some Game!
Hope just gets cuter and cuter!

DJan said...

I hope the Jets win, and go on to win the Superbowl. But that's only because it matters to YOU, I really don't have a preference otherwise. I hope you get to celebrate!!

Kay Dennison said...

I'm with you Dianne! Go Jets!!! I'm from NE Ohio -- need I say more?

Ron said...

As of this time things are not looking good.

Peggy said...

Great MF, love the way you tied it in to the Run for the Superbowl.
My Bears went into hybernation early again.
Enjoy your game!

Mike said...

No joy in Mudville tonight.

What a clear conversation near a bridge on a foggy day!

HermanTurnip said...

Why did the Jets decide to throw the ball on the 1 yard line instead trying to run it in?! That was stupid. I *really* thought the Jets could make a run at it until that series of downs. (HermanTurnip shakes his head in disgust).

Linda said...

Knowing the outcome of the game at this point I wonder how that bridge sale went??

Good thing you like the Steelers!

Michael G-G said...

V. topical. What's Sam going to do with the bridge he's just bought?

Hope you have a wonderful week.

sylviamorice said...

Maybe Sam needs a new bridge??? I confess that I don't follow football, but "Go, Jets"....
LOL
Have a great week. Cheers!

Maria@BubblegumandDuctTape said...

is that football? I'm not much into football, but I liked your spin on the picture, very creative.

Pat said...

Great take on the photo, Dianne! My husband was trying to save the bridge, too.

Scott Oglesby said...

Sorry about your Jets Dianne. They looked like they might come back in the second half but… D-Fence and all of that!

They brought themselves bad Karma with the whole Terrible Towel thing. And on Myron’s Birthday.

I’m so proud of my little, honorary niece!

Matt-Man said...

Tough loss, but turned out to be an exciting 2nd Half. Cheers Sexy!!

Arkansas Patti said...

Aw shoot, I had recorded the end of the game and planned to watch it today, but rats, now I know who won.
I am glad you are OK with it. I was thinking about you.
Know how you feel, I always felt that if my Fins won just one three games a year, I was good. They just had to beat, NE, the Jets and the Bills. I am easy.

Akelamalu said...

LOL love your MM Dianne and the photos of Hope with her Daddy. :)

Mama Zen said...

Sully knows his football!

Hilary said...

Sports.. (blah, blah, blah, blah)..

Hope! It's like the sun just rose. She's one angel face.

Rambling Woods said...

Love your son with Hope.. precious...

Vinny "Bond" Marini said...

They did not show up for the first half and then had some questionable play calls on the goal line - RUN THE DANG BALL!

OH well, they got further than my Giants.

Diane said...

Sorry about your Jets loss. I'm from NY and hoped they'd make it. :O)

Reb said...

Well done on the MFM, love the photos of Hope too ;)

Elizabeth Mueller said...

I enjoyed your MFM! Cute family, too! :)

Toonman recorded both games so he could fast forward through being unable to sit for long stretches w/o paying for it when he stands up .. I went to sleep early but I could hear him yelling at the TV so I knew before I heard on the news that the Jets hadnt made it to the Stupid Bowl ... I am sorry for their fans .. but there's always next year

Lisa (Mountain Photog) said...

I couldn't tell you who will be in the Super Bowl. . . All I know is that Hope is more beautiful every day.

Jim said...

Too bad the Steelers had to win, Dianne. But that's what happens when you let professionals in the game.
..
Arn't those 18 month-olds cute!
Did Hope get into the money just after you took this one?
..

Suldog said...

I must say, the J-E-T-S going down to the Steelers was somewhat pleasurable. Of course, I suffered when you guys beat my Pats, so...

nitebyrd said...

Sorry about the Jets but I really like your micro-fiction!

Boonie S said...

Fun post. Thanks for this.

All the best, Boonie

OldOldLady Of The Hills said...

I know nothing about any of these teams, my dear...But I hope whoever you want to win the Super Bowl, WILL!
