    Riddle Sideways: it is good to see the leap back in your step
    Adams Rubble: Hello Riddle :)
    Riddle Sideways: are you in good spirits today?
    Adams Rubble: yes and no :)
    Riddle Sideways: good. there is an honest answer
    Adams Rubble: :) half of me is very happy and half of me is otherwise
    Adams Rubble: like a person at a New years Eve party :)
    Adams Rubble: I did not realize until you asked

    Adams Rubble looks harder
    Riddle Sideways: and you had not really looked at your state of ... yet
    Riddle Sideways: Onion
    Adams Rubble wipes a tear
    Riddle Sideways: remembering a friend that would always say "State of the Onion"
    Riddle Sideways: it was somtimes a play on words, but mostly really meant the many Layered/levels of the onion
    Riddle Sideways: that is this self
    Adams Rubble: I know people think about layers
    Adams Rubble: That hasn't quite worked for me because things come and go
    Riddle Sideways: all the works that reference the thousand petals of the lotus. never worked either

    Adams Rubble: and if we are observant we can grab that positive energy and have it pull us along instead of letting that negative energy drag us down into the bowels of hell
    Riddle Sideways: yes!!
    Riddle Sideways: e.g. re-re-reading the SuperBowl commentaries
    Riddle Sideways: there was much about the other teams good plays did not get them 'down'
    Adams Rubble: Yo, the Iggles are the greatest
    Riddle Sideways: Fly Iggle Fly
    Adams Rubble: Iggles
    Riddle Sideways: right *Iggles
    Adams Rubble: :)

    Riddle Sideways: Pause right at "that" emotion layer

    Adams Rubble: Do you have a favorite NFL team Riddle? Buffalo? SF?
    Riddle Sideways: SF
    Adams Rubble: they have nice uniforms
    Riddle Sideways: growing up it was Buffalo, but they were not that good
    Riddle Sideways: only one flaw in their uniforms
    Riddle Sideways: the brand name of their helmets was removed
    Riddle Sideways: :))
    Adams Rubble: and Buffalo's best player let his negative energy drag him and others into the bowels o hell
    Riddle Sideways: *SF

    Adams Rubble: Frank reich was the backup
    Riddle Sideways: wow! what a memory
    Adams Rubble: Frank reich is with the Iggles
    Riddle Sideways: and a very young Montana is the Iggles QB
    Adams Rubble: I always thought the Bills deserved more dredit for being in 4 super bowels in a row
    Adams Rubble: credit
    Adams Rubble: so much of a gap between the team that wins and the poor team that loses
    Riddle Sideways: Always thought Buffalo desires much more Credit
    Adams Rubble: is an honor to just be there
    Riddle Sideways: period

    Adams Rubble has much useless memory
    Riddle Sideways: seeing how the slightest (in other's view) things can make or break performance.
    Adams Rubble: yes, we are slaves to our routines
    Riddle Sideways: there are those that think that The Bills or Football or Sports are a waste of time with little redeeming value
    Riddle Sideways: yet
    Riddle Sideways: even as a metaphor generator
    Adams Rubble: microcosm of human existence
    Riddle Sideways: an analogy engine
    Adams Rubble: or bloody waste of time
    Adams Rubble giggles
    Riddle Sideways: an hour of your life. That takes 3 hours to play/watch
    Adams Rubble: when I was young I used to think that football was a civilized society's replacement for war
    Adams Rubble: but unfortunately I have learned that we have football and war, and now football glorifies war
    Riddle Sideways: ah, the Coliseum therory
    Adams Rubble: football is like a chess game with a little brutality
    Riddle Sideways: "WAR! uh-huh, what is it Good for/absolutely nothin. Say it again"
    Adams Rubble: like a chess game in which the bishop gets knee injuries and the queen leaves with a concussion
    Adams Rubble: smash mouth chess
    Riddle Sideways: all those Pawn linemen holding the middle of the board
    Adams Rubble: hard to talk about war
    Riddle Sideways: or not
    Adams Rubble: yes, the 350 pound 6'5" pawns
    Adams Rubble: someone got the scale of the chess pieces all wrong
    Riddle Sideways: the Queen would not look so good without them
    Riddle Sideways: imagining the instant replay in super slo-mo of the player's hand brushes (or not) the knight on the way to picking up the pawn. Flags flying
