Football has been very, very good to us.
Even though 2013 & 2014 was a losing season's, we can console ourselves with this fact-
# of Super Bowl victories since 1985:
1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
4-New York Giants!!! & NE
Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE all by ourselves again!!!

My jaw hit the floor watching the news about Robin Williams on TV. Stunned isn't a strong enough word. I remember watching Williams on Mork & Mindy when I was kid. He had a lot of really good films, but my favorite has always been Dead Poets Society.
R.I.P. Robin Williams. He had a lot of personal struggles in his life, but hopefully he's at peace now.
One of these teams is not like the others
I just watched Hook on Netflix with my nephew and nieces last Saturday. Really sucks.
"The NY never comes off"
This is soooooo sad. I loved his comedy. I just watched him again on the best of Inside The Actors Studio. He was one of the funniest in our history !!!
and the HBO special Weapons of Self Destruction. Rest in Peace Robin

Osi Umenyiora : " There's Nothing Like Being a NY GIANT ! "
At the risk of sounding like a "know it all", I only know this because upon hearing the news earlier, I looked up a couple interviews with him from a couple years ago in which he wanted to talk about it.
So, for reasons known only to him (or maybe not known to him), his recurring bouts of depression apparently took control, even though he was a successful, if chronic, fighter of his addictions.
This has hit me hard, as it has many of us here and elsewhere.
At least Johnathan Winters, an idol of Williams (and me) passed when he was 88 (16 months ago, to the day). Even with his demons (and he had many, spent time in an institution--twice--when much younger), he had a life in full.
Robin passed too young, with more to give us. Nano nano, Robin.
I know this is a little late (I was on vacation) but he was just diagnosed with Parkinson's. I loved watching him there isn't a time that he didn't make me want to roll on the floor.
