Oh, I never count high school. But, yes, that could play an impact in others.

I was just thinking if you were going pre-1970 with the Browns.

But truly, at the root of enmity, is Browns/Steelers.
It definitely football, for sure. Browns/Steelers is but one manifestation. For example:

Geographical proximity plays a huge part - regional bragging rights and whatnot. Western Pennsylavnia and Eastern and Northeastern Ohio are the cradle of football, professional football in particular. Again, with the Browns and Steelers being the highest-profile piece of that. But save for Texas and, more recently, Florida, these states are also storied high school football bastions.

Oh God. I've decided to change the topic of my Master's project and the advisor that would be the best for this topic is the professor (and quite possibly human being) I hate most in the world. ****.

Is it because the picture is in color or that you don't have to stand still for a half hour anymore?

LMAO! ^^^

Thanks for the kind words, Pete. Her actual senior picture won't be tacky enough to have a jersey in it, but with so many to choose from, we wanted a few different ones for around the house.

Ouch! My senior picture does not really look like JFO's avatar (though it is in black and white!).

I've been taking those in one- and two-day increments, myself.

It was an earthquake, all right. 5.8 magnitude per CNN.

At the time I wasn't sure if it was an earthquake or an 800 lb man walking just outside my cube. I thought the floor was going to give.

Didn't feel much of anything, but I'm practically in the basement over here. There was a little more rattling than usual, but that's all I noticed... until about five minutes later when Twitter started going a little nuts.
