I don't want to talk about it.
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.
