Bleah!

All of my Halloween icons here on LJ are gone because of the userpic packages expiring. Just my luck it'd happen at the wrong time! :(

Meh, might as well whine some more. With the LJ Paid Account expiring in a week, the icons are kaput, anyway. I'm just a spoiled little girl! :)

Oh, well, Happy Halloween a little early!

Week 2: New England Patriots 36, New Orleans Saints 20 (1-1) (Sunday, September 17, 2017)

MUCH better this week, but the Pats usually follow a stinker with a good game. Tom threw for 447 yards and Gronk had a great game, including a monster TD! Tom threw 3 TDs in the first quarter, the first time he's ever done that. The offense looked like they were getting in sync, but most of the WRs got hurt this game, so who knows going forward? Pats did gain 555 yards of total offense, the most for the Patriots since 2003.

The defense was better but gave up too many long completions. Still, improvement was shown. If injuries don't do them in, this team will be very potent as predicted.

Buffalo lost and Miami and the Jets playing late games, so will update later.

Next week, Houston comes to Foxboro!

EDIT: Miami wins and the Jets lose. Here's the standings:

AFC EAST DIVISION

Miami 1-0
NE 1-1
BUFF 1-1
NYJ 0-2

Help! (Bummer)

*sigh*

Just as fandom becomes extremely important to me again after turmoil in RL, I get notices that BOTH my Livejournal paid account and Livejournal extra icon packages are expiring, the icons in three days (!) and the paid account in a few weeks. Sadly, without a paid account, extra userpics would go to waste.

I have been quiet so far this month but if I can get a handle on things, I might be able to post more fic next month. After all, it will be Halloween!

If any two fannish devotees could help out, I would be most appreciative! Thank you.

***Please note that while this entry appears on both DW and LJ, the expirations of both account and package are on LJ.

Ugh!

Last week was the Week From Hell, and this week is no better. The changes going on in my life are making me cling to Fandom once again as my life preserver. Thank the stars it's my favorite time of year. Maybe that'll cheer me up. :(

Week 1: Kansas City Chiefs 42, New England Patriots 27 (0-1) (Thursday, September 7, 2017)

It started out grandly, with fireworks and the unveiling of Banner No. 5, five giant mock-ups of the Lombardi Trophy, Patriot flags flying and the militia shooting their rifles. Retired Patriot greats held the actual trophies as the crowd cheered. Lusty boos and Goodell clown towels had greeted the weasel Commissioner before the game.

The game started auspiciously, too. Brady marched his men down the field in no-huddle and scored a beautiful TD. Unfortunately, it went all downhill after that. The offense was out of sync, special teams made critical mistakes, and the defense was a leaky sieve, giving up huge bombs and running yards. It was Tom Brady's first home opener loss, and a shocking rare loss at home, period.

I knew the Chiefs would be trouble! Andy Reid is a good coach. The loss of Julian Edelman and other key players is already showing. Of course, we've seen this before. After being humiliated on Monday Night Football by the Chiefs in Kansas City in 2014, the Patriots came roaring back and won a Super Bowl.

Will this be history repeating itself? Or will the injuries simply be too much? Stay tuned!

Since the other divisional teams haven't played yet (Miami's game is cancelled, in fact), I won't post any standings.

Next week: the Pats on the road against the New Orleans Saints!

EDIT: Buffalo wins and the Jets lose!

AFC EAST DIVISION

BUFF 1-0
NE 0-1
NYJ 0-1

Fall & Football

Hi, luvs!

A few football notes for you, but first, wow, what a great summer! It's about 62 degrees today, and everything's still green. Rain again today courtesy of the remnants of Hurricane Harvey, but nothing too heavy. Tomorrow is supposed to be beautiful. We have had cool weather for weeks now. *happy sigh* Kind of a Pacific Northwest summer! :)

Football notes: if you're interested in behind-the-scenes stuff, there's a special on NBC tonight at 7:00 P.M. EDT that features the Patriots, a lot of why the coaches decided what they did, and other inside stuff. Those in the media who have seen it already say it's excellent.

Even if you're not a football fan but you like fireworks and hoopla, consider watching the beginning of the football game Sunday night for the raising of the championship banner in Foxboro. Should be fun! :)

Enjoy your Labor Day weekend, my fellow Americans! :)
