Disappointment

The title of this post has nothing to do with writing, thank god. I'm just disappointed by a terrible weekend of NFL football. Only one of the four teams I was pulling for actually won their game. And it's especially sad that I was only pulling for the New York Jets because I hate the Patriots.

Oh well, moving on before I make any enemies. I've got some great things coming up this week. I'm going to be interviewing Bryan Russell, who is the closest thing I have to a mentor in my so called writing career, and he is going to be sharing and analyzing his query as well this week.

Then, at some point, as soon as I can respond to her questions, I will be interviewed by JM Leotti, over at her blog, Restless Spirit. I intend to interview and promote her as well, over here, but I don't think I'm going to be able to fit that post in this week.

Anyway, I'm off to do some writing before I have to get to work. Scroll down for an awesome drawing of me by Vic if you haven't already seen the post from this weekend.

P.S. I notice I've gained several new followers over the weekend. Welcome! I will try to make it to all of your blogs as soon as I can.

I'm sorry to hear your teams didn't win, but at least it wasn't writing-related bad news.

It sounds like you have a great week coming up! Looking forward to it!

Oddly enough, I think hubbers was HAPPY with the football turn out this weekend, so maybe it's good you weren't watching in the same room...it might've gotten a little rowdy.

LOVE Vic's pic of you! She's so talented!!

I'm not even going to go into my disappointment about the Ravens. (It hurts too much).

But then, I was actually rooting for the Patriots last night, because there is no team I detest more than the Steelers...and the Pats own the Steelers.

So, needless to say, my entire football weekend was shite. I can sympathize.

Laura Pauling said...

My team - the Patriots - didn't win. But the Jets played an excellent game! :) So I heard, because I didn't watch it.

Natalie Aguirre said...

Sounds like a great week. Sorry but I don't watch football. Happy writing. I'm hoping to get a little done before 6 13 years old come over to help me put tickets in order for our Winter Carnival. Hopefully I'll get some tips on middle grade dialogue.

Old Kitty said...

Boo to the Patriots whoever they are! :-)

Lots of yummy things to look forward to here in your blog!! Yay!!

Keep on writing!! Take care

Wow, I haven't watched football in years. My mom was obsessed with it. She watches several sport games at once (and not just fb), which always drove me nuts. My husband and father aren't into sports, though they're way more active than Mom.

Good luck with your writing this week!

Matt! Such blasphemy! You hate the Patriots?? I am a major fan, but apparently they didn't want it that badly, huh?? What was up with Brady?That was a horrible game. Win or lose, I like to see a game. Blah...but at least this eases up my anxiety for Super Bowl weekend. lol

Em-Musing said...

Wow! Watching football has really changed you, Matt. Love your new photo.

Christine Fonseca said...

Football junkies here too...though my husband was happy with the weekend.

Steve said...

Try being a Raiders fan.

Nicole Zoltack said...

I hate the Pats too. Never had a problem with them until they beat my Eagles. *sigh* Still waiting for that first ring.

DL Hammons said...

GO Bears!! Sorry, my wife's from Chicago. :)

Kelly said...

Go Bears!
Next week's game is going to be crazy in this house with Packers vs Bears. Not to mention my family will be moving to Packerland sometime this year. We will definitely be in the minority with our blue and orange wear there.

LTM said...

yay, writing! Yay!!!

are you talking about the NFL again? mer mer mer... ;p <3

Paul Joseph said...

Speaking as the 2010 Fantasy Football CHAMPION for my league, I'm not even interested at this point because I have nobody left to root for. I suppose I'm rooting for the Jets by default, but I do miss the excitment and anxiety football brought weekly until the playoffs began.

Pam Harris said...

Football season irked me ever since the Giants went out of the running. My dad's from Brooklyn so I have to represent! :)

Joanne Brothwell said...

I love the drawing of you, Matthew! I wouldn't have been able to imagine you in a suit before!

beyondhiphop said...

i wasnt that disapointed at all.

BTN Hip Hop said...

looking forward to it

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I was rooting for one team that won, but it wasn't the Jets. (Sorry, too cocky, especially their coach.) Most of the others I didn't really care either way. Sad it will all end soon...

Christina Lee said...

*pouty face to football*

And AHHHHH I love that picture!!!

Lydia K said...

Sorry the Steelers won. My hubs, however, is not sorry at all.

I love the drawing of you! It's great!

K. M. Walton said...

Oh, Matthew, I'm a die hard Eagles fan and our last game ended with gut wrenching disappointment...a freaking interception.

Ahhhh, I hate even typing it out.

Carrie said...

I gave up on this football season when being a Vikings fan felt a little more like being a Lions fan. I've been looking forward to catchers and pitchers reporting since Thanksgiving.

Shannon said...

Sorry you had a bad football weekend.

I hope you got some great writing in this morning. Looking forward to the great things you have in store on your blog this week!

Melissa said...

Sorry about the NFL disappointing you. I don't watch so I can't really say anything about it.



This week sounds like it's going to be a good one at your blog! I'm excited!

JM Leotti said...

Sorry about the foot ball. My step dad stopped watching when the Giants were out, so...

Okay, your interview is up! Thanks so much, it was great fun! :-D
