Connecticut.

Connecticut, by David Zeitlin.

Connecticut was the fifth state to enter the Union.  Its nicknames are the “Constitution State” and the “Nutmeg State.”

Connecticut is only the 48th largest state in the Union in geographical size, but it is the 29th most populous state in the Union with 3.4 million residents.

Connecticut has the highest per capita and median household income in the United States!

Did you know that Connecticut is home to the oldest U.S. newspaper still being published: The Hartford Courant, established in 1764?!

Connecticut is home to the first hamburger (1895), Polaroid camera (1934), helicopter (1939), and color television (1948)!!!

Here is the Connecticut state flag:

State Capitol:  Hartford

State Song:  Yankee Doodle!

State Motto:  “Qui Transtulit Sustinet.” I believe that is Latin.

State Bird:  The Robin  

State Flower:  Mountain Laurel

State Tree:  White Oak 

State Poker Beast:  ME.  

I Just shipped another 57k by chopping the 2k Foxwoods Megastack (with overlay)!

I approve of and endorse the following nicknames:  “King of Connecticut,” “The CT Assassin,” “Mr. Overlay,” “SugBot,” “The Shippy Shoomaker” and “Sugzilla.”  Or you could just call me the man.  Thank you.

PS:  Janeen just chastised me for being too cocky.  In case it wasn’t obvious, I’m kidding around.  I know that I’m running insanely hot right now and haven’t mastered the universe.

  1. one of my favorite things about this blog (and by favorite, I mean interesting, not that I enjoy that this happens to you) are the insane highs and lows that you go through. When you run cold you have to struggle with self doubt, the burdens of constant travel, and the other difficulties that come with a dry spell. When you run hot you have to deal with trying to keep your massive ego in check. :-p

    Congratulations on the hot streak! I hope it continues!!!

  2. Rumor has it that ” O’s ” massive ego is stoked when more than 6 individuals seek diving lessons in a single week. We miss you at the Jet’s tailgate parties.
