16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: hey can someone bring me another coke from the fridge
16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Yeah, Austria got Russia to support him in Bulgaria, because Russia is afraid being seemingly in an alliance with me. Why? Because both of you have played the juggernaut Fear-card with a heavy hammer from early on. Deep stuff. Keep up the good work: Germany, Austria and Italy ;)
16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: don't look at me. i'm just sitting here drinking coke and eating Bon Bons on the duvet with snowy
16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: I'll break out the potato chips if you want
16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: sure, just pull up a seat and enjoy the tennis match. it is turkey vs germany at wimbleton
16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: so many football references can be made at this time of year, and you chose wimbleton? I'm not sure I want to anymore
16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: mfliegauf- What team do you support?
16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: manchester city, since 1985.
16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: mainly the patriots, but I was happy to see the packers win last night
16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: oh yes the pats, since 1989
16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Oh, I meant american football
16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Ouch, that might be a dealbreaker for your Triple Alliance.
16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Btw. still waiting for you Austria in PM to respond why I should be moving my armies against Russia.
16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Nice try, friend
16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Oh sorry, so you are saying you would rather have me down south?
16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: The funniest thing about this is that on the forum Brad said that he is retired United States Navy.
16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Turkey, the reason I haven't responded to you is because you are mind-numbingly annoying
16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Btw.,Germany. Have you convinced England to get into Holland instead of Belgium yet?
16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: yes but i knew a girl from manchester, england
16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Thank you for your service
16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: So, do you support an NFL franchise?
16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: nah, i only have pocket change. oh you mean who do i root for? Pats, Jets, Rams and sometimes Raiders, oh and the Browns
16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: So, in other words, you are confused and have no idea who you support? :)
16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: You're best bet is probably the browns ;)
16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: actually two left LA and then i followed the jets and then when they fired ryan the pats. the browns are because my wife and mother are from cleveland
16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: One just moved to LA. :)
16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: actually we now have two again
16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: both are returnees to LA
16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Just the Rams of that group.
16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: the chargers actually started off in LA and then moved to San Diego
16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Yes, for one season in 1960. I am aware of that. You did not list the Chargers as a team that you support though.
16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: you are very observant
16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Who do you think I support? Take a guess.
16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: probably dallas
16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Haha.

Actually Miami.
16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: so sad
16 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Lol.
17 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: The question is, should I try to grab Ionian?
17 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: only if you bring the beer
17 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: I don't drink. But I might be able to carry some delicious hummus from my lands.
17 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: fair enough
18 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: I have to let the phase go until tomorrow. I will ready tomorrow morning.
18 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Fellow players,

I have taken ill over the last day or so and being that Diplomacy takes a fair amount of mental energy and due to the fact that the game is still so young, I am going to just put up a draw vote. Last month, I had to have the mods pull me from a game for another reason which I do not want to have to do again. If I simply continued playing, I think that I would begin to make poor game decisions because I am sapped of strength and energy.

Thank you.
18 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Hi,

So, I am being serious here. I am totally drained and tapped out right now.
19 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: Am I talking to myself here?

I am completely wiped out here and I can't put in the necessary energy to continue the game. There are plenty of games that everyone can play.
19 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: I put in a draw vote
19 Jan 17 UTC Autumn, 1902: me too, i drew
19 Jan 17 UTC I will make it a point to play with as many of you at some point in the future as I can.
19 Jan 17 UTC I'll draw.
19 Jan 17 UTC Thanks. Hopefully we will have the chance to play in the future. Best of luck to everyone in their other games.
