Not the best start here

So, hello to the new people on my flist. I look forward to getting to know you. And to start off, I'm going to make a post that has *nothing* to do with fandom. Please feel free to skip.

Personally I don't really care about the game. I don't know the rules *at*all* so watching it makes no sense for me. I don't begrudge other people enjoying the game, but please, please, *please* keep it out of Ottawa.

It's been in the news lately that there's a group of people talking with the mayor about bringing a team back. Please don't. We just lost our old one a few years ago (seriously, what was it? 2 years ago?). We lost it, because no one would go to the games. People were losing money. If your professional players have to have a day job to support themselves, then obviously there's something wrong.

Ottawa is just not a good city for professional sports. In recent memory, we've lost a football team, a baseball team and a lacrosse team. Because no one in the city will support them. We don't have the population, and since this is a government town, we don't have the private businesses to support professional sports. Seriously, there was a while there, when there was talk of losing the *hockey* team. If the *hockey* team was struggling, no way in hell are we going to be able to support a *football* team.

I just don't want to have to listen for the months on end, of fans rallying and saying "If you don't support our team, we're going to lost it" All I'll be thinking is, "Can we lose it for good this time?"

On a fandom note:
I just watched 201 of Numb3rs, and no wonder why I couldn't really remember the story line for Megan and Colby showing up. There wasn't one. They barely even explained why Terry wasn't there. *pfft* At least I wasn't going crazy....
I'm so not going to be able to rewatch everything before Friday's new episode.

Also? My computer, you know the one that's caused me no end of trouble? Well, last week I started getting these messages saying that a "SMART error" had occurred, and to back my shit up because I could lose it at any time. I called Gateway, and they were supposed to send me a new hard drive, instead they sent me a CD with the factory standards on it. Not what I needed. And now, my computer won't even start up. I think I'm going to have to kill someone. Seriously.
