    If your hometown team is winning everything, then it can be kinda "Oh, they won again." But I grew up rooting for the Jacksonville Jaguars. They had a fast start, almost making it to the Super Bowl their second year, but fell to mediocrity soon after. Hopefully, Gus Bradley can turn things around.
    And hockey can be fun to watch. I enjoyed the few local minor league games I went to.

    Anyway, back on topic, the title to this diary is a tad misleading. "So bad they're good" implies their badness makes them good. Like Robot Jox. I'd say "so good, but so bad" is more appropriate for Cerebus. I haven't read Glamourpuss, or anything else Sim has written, so I don't know if that defines his whole career.

      Some of the books are bad, some of the authors are bad, and sometimes it's both.  Stop by on Saturday nights and give it a whirl!  :)

        then I went to Penn State.

        And we almost always made it to a bowl game.

        Is it any wonder that I much prefer soccer? And basketball? And tennis?

          This meant that the football team, the cheerleaders, and the marching band got everything, and the rest of us (including the choir and the literary magazine, my main activities) got nothing.  I'm still fried that the marching band got a trip to Disney World and the choir robes were cleaned only every second or third (or fourth) year.
