    I thought you were gonna say you reached into the refrigerator and grabbed a Cranberry Beer!

    Look at it this way, at least you have beer to deaden the pain!

    Great article. And good focus. This season is like having a tooth that needs to be pulled.

    We'll all feel better shortly.

    The 2nd last line is what it's all about now.

    Still, it's nothing how I would describe my game 'experience'.

    Why should I get out of bed at 4am just to watch us lose?

    I was fortunate. I wasn't able to watch the whole game. I was in the Northern Neck celebrating my anniversary and caught part of the game while having lunch with my wife. The score was 10-0, and Grossman fumbled on a QB keeper. Fortunately, the fumble was overturned otherwise it would have been 17-0. I had seen enough. After driving back home, my brother and law tells me the 'skins just lost in overtime. What?! How could this be? The Redskins had managed to score more than 20 points?! Nevertheless, even though the offense finally managed to score more than 20 the kicking game and defense found a way to lose the game for us. Once again snatching defeat from the jaws of victory. I'm glad I saved myself the pain of watching the whole thing.

    I need to go check on how my fantasy teams are doing. At this point fantasy is all I have left.

    My takes would be:

    2:15am, Monday morning, time for bed.

    Wake just after 5 busting for a leak. Walk past the laptop on the way to the dunny. Drain the lizard. Walk back past the laptop, should I?, the game is on and we could be leading!. Nah, stupid thought, so back to bed.

    Wake again just on 8.30am. Dogs going off. Flick on the kettle on the way to again draining the lizard. Make coffee, fire up laptop. WTF! We're in OT. Romo must have gotten hurt early. Grossout gets us to within FG range. Gano .................................... misses! Ball to Dallas. Hall toasted by Bryant. Bailey FG - Dallas wins.

    Time to mow the lawns!

    Coors Light? Seriously? Had it turned blue so as to guarantee the optimal drinking temperature (meaning too cold to taste anything)?

    Disturbingly realistic, brother.

    "Everyman"? Pssh. If you were going for that, you should have put in the Pommegranate Cranberry brew of choice.

    I would like to meet this person sometime soon and let him know that all is well in an RG3 world. It's a place that is full of excitement, joy, astonishment, and pride. It comes equipped with an OL that is rock solid and built to last.

    John,

    The community here at BGO on game day and the thought of drafting a saviour at Quarterback high in the draft (cough...RG3...cough) are the only things that save me these days as a Redskins fan.

    I felt dirty this morning and last night knowing that deep down inside, I wanted Gano to miss the OT field goal. I shouted "Graham, you have no business hitting this field goal." My wife looked at me sideways, but sadly, it's my only option at this point. I've experienced the false joy in winning a meaningless game and I've recognized now that it's got this franchise no further ahead.

    Our options are limited...I figure I'll try hoping for losses in hopes of a better future.

    This is torture at it's best.
