Oh the beautiful snowy nights of northern Wisconsin. I have had a crappy year so far. Not so much today. Packers 42, Seahawks 20. Wow, that Ryan Grant!

All right, my insane doppelganger. (Why do I know so many crazy people?) Here's a quote from the French Jesuit psychoanalyst Michel de Certeau on the man:
Once again Favre is on the move. But it is no longer a move from one dream to another: now his journeys take place along the world’s dusty pathways. [...] But a capacity that Favre had from his youth remains. He is still sensitive to the infinite variety of human beings and to the constant diversity of interior movements. More than others would, he notices detail—he feels it, he notes it, and the detail fills [his record] in abundant complexity, occasionally too much so. Everything is precious to him, because everything is open... There is no point in looking within Favre for any other quality that might explain the fascination he radiated and the friendships that clustered round him. For each person he met, he was a saviour of something deep within that was being lost. He was not eloquent or brilliant; rather he bore, humbly, people’s burdens.Not bad for a guy who died in 1986.
Update: did that just happen? Giants 21, Cowboys 17. Lambeau Lambeau Lambeau woo!
It gets classic Wisconsin at 7:30. Note the snow angels and the spontaneous polka. Sometimes I love my people so damn much.
