No Offense.

It's said that when British troops under the command of Lord Cornwallis surrendered to American and French forces at Yorktown, they were so confounded that they played a tune called, "The World Turned Upside Down."  The events of this Sunday leave me equally confounded, and liable to sing this ancient ballad of woe.  The Buffalo Bills, playing indoors in Toronto lose to the Miami Dolphins and go two consecutive weeks without a touchdown!  I feel as if I have fallen into an alternate dimension where nothing is right.  There are no airships.

PS:  After reading up on "The World Turned Upside Down" I have learned that it was a riposte aimed against Oliver Cromwell who was at the time engaged in the Original War on Christmas (tm).
