    Yeah, unfortunately I stopped going to football games when I left Seattle, but I'm still excited that they finally made it to the Super Bowl.

      Erm, excuse me if it's because of another dreaded cultural difference, but is it usual that respected Samandans go crazy for something not involving AT or Sam ?

        Came across this the other day, while re-reading Stepping Through the Stargate, edited by P.N. Elrod and Roxanne Conrad. Each chapter is a fun romp into the science, archaeology and military aspects of the series, co-authored by people from different walks of life. There's even a chapter on fashion! This is what caught my eye, in that chapter, entitled When in Rome, Don't Wear That by the editor, Roxanne Conrad:

        "Sam, you are a goddess among TV women. You're tall, you're strong, you're totally credible as a fighter - when you stand up with the team, you look like one of them, and yet you carry it off with a flair and femininity all your own.

        But what's with the hair, Sam? I'm feeling much better about season seven's 'do, but let's face it, the artfully disarranged look of seasons four, five and six had more to do with stylists than sensibility. Packing the hair gel and blow dryer might be feasible, although I don't know where you pick up that truly universal power converter - are you hooking up to a portable naquadah generator? Lord knows many of the races you run into could use a good conditioner (hello, Nox? pick up the clue phone!), but keeping that look fabulous must require a lot of intensive mirror time. I like your short, kicky, dry-on-the-go styles better. So do the guys of SG-1, who no doubt used to stand around grumbling as you fluffed the layers into a halo before a firefight.

        You have the additional burden of makeup. (Well, I know, everyone on the team does, but it's the job of guys to not look like they do.) Yours is totally believable, most of the time. Natural, not overdone, and when you've been beaten and wounded, you actually look like you've been beaten and wounded. Kudos for knowing (and showing) the beauty inside, Major.

        Though most often you toe the base party line, we've seen you in an interesting variety of outfits: fluffy spring colors, ruffles, leather motorcycle duds, severe pantsuits a la X-Files, cleavage and fabulous shoes. Like most women, you're an enigma. I recently said to a guy that all women have five basic sections in their closet: work clothes, comfy clothes, party clothes, formal wear and clothes you don't show your mother. You've displayed all of them, which, to my mind, just makes you even more real as a character ...."


        LOL I thought this was well written and captured the essence of Sam's style. The author wrote this before S8 and S9 I believe. I never thought of Sam as one to fuss at all with her hair though ... and it's understandable considering the small amount of hair gel/conditioner she's issued each season (AT's Lowdown comic moment)!

        I also liked the line about "showing the beauty inside" and not being afraid to look like she'd gotten whumped. I wonder if Amanda had to advocate to have herself portrayed more realistically in scenes like the ones from Death Knell? I remember her saying that she loves to get dirty and bloody, much more than dressing up as a girly girl.

        As to her wardrobe, I'm still thinking about Sam's "clothes that she wouldn't show her mother" (in this case, father)? Any suggestions as to what outfit the author was referencing here? I can pretty much conjure up a Sam Carter in her work clothes, comfy clothes, party clothes, and formal wear ....

        Enjoy!

          I bet Carter is a Football fan.
          Although for some odd reason I always thought her family was from pensulvania so she would be rooting for pittsburgh .

          Someone please tell me I am terribly, terribly wrong and the Carters are from somewhere else.. PLEASE.

          ^^^ Kinda sounds like seasons 9 and 10 of SG-1 to me. Thor, ya got Aspirin?

            Hey, Pennsy is good; it's very good. And, just to make things interesting, I'm gonna root for those gutsy Steelers, especially since my Eagles tanked this season!

              Aww, my poor Eagles!

              I'm certainly rooting for the Steelers. Pennsylvania's where it's at!
              SQUEE like no one's listening.

Wheras 1speed knows me so well he dare not put "Vala" down on the scrabble board for fear of never seeing the light of day again
                  You almost did! Don't you remember? I had to restrain you from running onstage at GABIT once you asked her if she ever hiked in Scotland and her answer was "no"!! Thought you were gonna drag the poor woman off ... er, thank goodness you had already given the backpack as a gift to me!

                  You were quite nice around me and my daughter, but then we were on good behaviour too. After all, Amanda was nearby.

                  BTW, I think I managed to translate Ladhar Bheinn in Knoydart ... how about that! Was it Amanda's reprimand to BB when he tried to tell her how to play her lines? "Later Ben, I know 'dat!"

                        I also liked Nightwalkers. I thought it was interesting that she was wearing leather pants.
