I don't want to talk about it.

At all.

Maybe it it time I hang up my shoes. Maybe it is time to make a dramatic change in my life. Maybe it is time for me to stop watching sports. That may be too dramatic, perhaps I should start with changing the teams I love and follow.

And I am not talking about switching teams. I am talking about not following ANY team. And just watch the sports I love because of the game and nothing else.

I guess I do want to talk about it. I should be proud that my team made it this far. I should be proud that they came out in the 2nd half and played the way they should have. But I am not proud. I am tired of giving it my all, investing all that emotion and coming up empty.

I take losses hard. But I take it even harder when it is the playoffs. The further they go, the harder I take it. I thought I would wake up feeling better today but I am still empty and I still feel down and depressed. Not even a bowl of Count Chocula can fix this. I cannot imagine what it would be like to be a player and lose at this stage instead of just being a fan and lose.

Either way, a loss is a loss.

I'm sure I will get over it eventually. I mean this is definitely not the first time. And I am sure that once the season ends after the Superbowl I will be looking forward to next year.

At least there was one good thing that came from that Jets game:

I about died laughing when I saw that. It reminded me a little of what Favre would do.


  1. Sorry man! But that is part of being a TRUE fan! None of this fair-weather crap that people do nowadays. I respect your faith in your team and if they hadn't wasted so much time on that last possession they might have completed the comeback. I am sure I'll feel your pain later this year when BYU eventually loses in the NCAA tournament.

  2. I was bitterly disappointed that the Jets didn't make it to the Super Bowl this year; like the Pittsburgh Steelers really needed to play in the Super Bowl, again!! You have my deepest sympathy!
