As a KU fan I was kind of pulling for KSU until they lost to Baylor because I just down right despise the SEC. But I just cannot root for Colin Klein. For some reason, from what I understand, in Manhattan they call him Baby Tebow which I would consider an insult unless you are just like Tebow!

On my roll call for my cruise which leaves Saturday. Someone from Florida was so upset with the way Denver treated Tebow. I just laughed and stayed quiet about the matter.

Sorry for being late to the party. Two more from Ann Arbor MI here. So far, I've dragged my partner on on three cruises; I've been on a few more than that myself. (I've found with an N of 2 that it's usually a bit of a struggle to convince someone to go on their first cruise; the second is usually much easier, if you can get them off the boat in the first place.) I've been on half a dozen lines, and NCL is our line of choice for now. Sadly, no future trips planned yet; I don't think we'll get another till next winter.

I've never had a problem getting my partner on or off (are we talking boats here)? We are looking forward to Celebrity's new Reflection in April. Hope to see more G & L people on the cruise.

Just got back from spending Christmas week with my partner on the Reflection. The ship was incredible and we had lots of gay men on the cruise. They posted FOD get togethers every night at 10:15 pm in the Molecular Bar. The first night of the cruise, there were about 15-20 people. Over the rest of the week, saw even more couples that weren't at the FOD mtg.

You'll love the Reflection.

That has always been our experience, too! We see lots of other gay couples who don't come to FOD for whatever reason.

Thank you for relating your Reflection experiences. We have never been on Celebrity, so that sounds very positive. On another note, sorry about Ohio State basketball vs Kansas. We were actually in Columbus during the NCAA tournament when both teams played each other. We stayed with Brad & Bruce on Dennison Ave, you might know them.

No, you're not! You are as happy as I am that Kansas beat Ohio State for the third Time in a row!

I'm not from the midwest per say, but for what it's worth, I really hope Kansas State wins their bowl game. It about killed me when they lost to Baylor.

I'm an Oklahoma State alum, so I know that feeling.

I'm from Minneapolis also. I'm loyal to Royal at this point, but trying my first Celebrity cruise on the Reflection in February. Love the automatic Elite status on Celebrity since I'm Diamond on RCCL.

That's OK. I'm actually a Michigan grad living in Columbus and can't stand Ohio State!
