Fangcon was great! Unfortunately, the ad I submitted to the conbook was printed in black and white. So here's the colored version~

Since they haven't been posted yet...





I can totally see Brian despising that sweater and yet wearing it anyways to make the rest of the family happy.

Also: Holy cow am I stuffed! We had a late Thanksgiving and we all ate ourselves absolutely silly. We'll also have leftovers for a while as we didn't even get half way through the turkey. It was a big bird. Laughing

I never cared about sports; but, back in high school, on Superbowl Sunday
friends of mine played in the Toilet Bowl.

The Superbowl, huh? I know it exists and has to do with football, and that's about the extent of my awareness of the event. I don't follow TV sports; I guess I'm more of a player, not a watcher (not that I play organized sports either, but physical activity's a bit more interesting to me if I'm participating). Razz 

Hunter and David look adorable~

Guess I'm not the only one that doesn't follow sports here. XP The only reason I even remembered it was Super Bowl Sunday is because a friend brought it up, and I saw this comic. I did have an amazing and quiet Sunday, though. =3

[high fives Trevor, Cutekitty, and Mr. Ed]

I renounced the fandom of all organized sports in 2005. After all the steroid, gambling, and sex scandals, I had enough. Honestly, watching a game now is practically a guessing game as to who is using the better steroids (the losers of the Superbowl probably didn't have any).

Down here, it is said that even the sponsors are ORDERING their teams to lose in order to NOT give away prizes in some contests they have.


My uncle was very disappointed when I told him that I didn't root for any soccer team.  Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy 


Also, economically, it's been quite a boon. Because I renounced the fandom in 2005, I saved myself about 100 bucks for the mini-tv I DIDN'T buy in order to watch the World Cup at the office.

And there's all the money in the team paraphernalia I DON'T buy, too. If a team wants me to advertise for them, they're going to have to pay ME. I'm not paying ANY team one cent for advertising them.


Then there's the hard core fans I hear about: men who'd rather watch the game instead of having sex (latest poll: 15%, I think), men who prefer the game over weddings, graduations, their children's recitals, funerals...

But what really gets me is the amount of emotion that is spent on the games. I've seen adult men CRY because their team WON the championship. And I have to ask myself, "Do I want to waste that emotional energy on a team/game of which I'm not even participating in?"

Sorry, teams, but I have better things to do with my emotions than to waste them on YOU.

I was just talking to my friends about this. How much emotion people have for sports. It's incredible. I don't even have those reactions for things I'm very passionate about. Video games, art, etc. I can be moved to tears, and now and then I may squeal, but I've never jumped up and down screaming because of something.

My friend pointed out that perhaps there's so many people screaming at sports games because of the mob mentality. Actually being at the game would make a person more excited when everyone else around them was. Which, I can see that. It's never been the case for me, though. I was in Marching Band in 9th grade, and the games were always a hassle. It was fun playing 4th Bass Drum, but the mob mentality at the games never got to me. I never found myself jumping up and down and screaming. I'm just different like that. =P

When I was younger, I actually did try and get into sports. I was in Baseball, and it was fun, but honestly, I spent more time daydreaming in the outfield rather than caring if we won or not. Winning never mattered. It was always about having fun. Eventually, I stopped playing sports.
I remember trying to watch a few sports games. My family watched it all the time, so it had to be interesting, right? After trying several times, I just realized that it wasn't something that I was interested in. And I could never get into it.

I always enjoyed video games and electronics more. But, I think the thing that really killed me getting into sports is when my cousin came back from a game, injured, because the opposing team had two people slam him from opposite sides in a football game. He wasn't in such good shape for a while.

Your dad must have been very disappointed...



The thing that turned me off from American football is a report of a player who fell wrong, broke his neck, and became a quadriplegic.

And now there's reports that older players are succumbing to Alzheimer's and Parkinson's before they're 50.

Nah. My parents actually don't care about sports. They never watch or keep up with it. But they were willing to support me if I liked it. I didn't, though.

I watched the Super Bowl, even though I still don't understand the rules of the American football (well, I really haven't bothered to learn them, either). What is the most mindboggling part of a typical American football match is that there's very little actual gameplay and the most of the broadcast consists of commercials. Unfortunately, too many American TV commercials are so terrible that they make you wish you had a grater to grate your eyes out.

However, I liked the fact that there were commercials by the Church of Scientology during commercial breaks. A commercial by a religious alien cult during the Super Bowl... I don't know, to me that is something that can only happen in the USA.

Actually, many people watch the Superbowl just for the commercials. Being one of the most watched television events of the year, companies will pay ridiculously large amounts of money to buy commercial space and showcase the best (or worst, depending who you ask) their advertising has to offer. As a result, anticipation for the commercials is often just as high as for the game itself, if not more so. Probably something else that can only happens in the US ;D

Thanks for the explanation, Natalie!

Glad to hear you were never pressured to join any local team, Trevor. THAT is another thing that made me reject sports.

I suppose it works pretty much the same for single-digited animals (such as horses)? I'd love to see how a horse handles chopsticks. ^^

Awwwww poor Bryan  Smile 

I find him so cute, with 'the heart on his hands" as we say in France, designing someone very very nice ^^
(Dont know if you say the same thing ^^")

Clumsy but so nice ..... I feel sorry for him but that's why he is so lovable  cheers 

You did a great work for the personality of your characters, Natalie. It's not "just" Bryan.

Well, now we know that Brian and Dawn have their very own "noodle incident" even if it is Exactly What It Says On The Tin and not what TV Tropes would describe. Laughing

In the U.S. we would say Brian "wears his heart on his sleeve" for Dawn.  I love you 
However; this is a very old expression and is very seldom heard any more, at least in my area.

And I totally agree with your other comments about Brian and the rest of Ms Ellen-Natalies characters!
