Ole Miss-Mississippi state game is bad too, as most everyone has noted, it was nice seeing the Crowboys lose.

As a side note, I once ate a whole pecan pie in one sitting. I can't go near it now without my gag reflex kicking in. Luckily there's cream cheese stuffed sopapillas with cinnamon. I'll give that a whirl and hit the hay.

Thank god were not lion fans lol god they are awful poor goff
The Lions are bad in a losing way and not in a pathetic way. Look, they keep the games close but just cannot win which would be easier if they simply got blown out. I was watching the Lions and thought to myself how special it was to have my team with nine wins when you think about how difficult it really is to win in this league... the Cards are doing something exceedingly right, and overall don't ask me what but whatever the mix we are able to win :raccoon:

I’m going for it with a Costco Pumpkin Pie right now. Halfway there but it’s a long haul from here...

A few plays in most their games would make a huge difference.

I think yinz have more. We have maybe 13? I can count tomorrow at work off the calendar. But those are federal holidays and no employer really has to follow that.

I know yinz give out way more vacation time on average. Which is only right, giving workers plenty of time off. All statistics and studies point to higher productivity that way.

We only have 8. But most people don't work them with the exception of things like retail and entertainment.

But yes we get more paid holidays. Minimum 28 days (Inc public holidays). And our employment laws are much tougher. Much harder to fire people than in the US.

8, really? I always got the sense there were loads more, although, to be fair, most of my information comes from watching loads of British TV :D

Yeah, the paid leave thing is huge. I do and always have gotten plenty of time off, but a lot of places offer a week to start, or less. Often people get offered none and just have to work constantly, especially in lower-paying jobs. It just stinks and should be more standardized.

My youngest son’s girlfriend bought him tickets to the upcoming game in Detroit in a few weeks. He’s 0-5 watching the Cardinals live & is scared to death that him being there will jinx the Cardinals & Detroit will get their 1st win. My overall record watching the Cardinals is like 3-23, and Justin’s (cardsfanmd/oldest son) is like 2-15, so the family curse is legit. I’m not even allowed to watch the games on TV anymore. I’m only allowed to tape & watch afterwards. The last game I watched was the Packer game & we know how that worked out.
