Boone said:Perhaps the six months of quietude and entropy of an NFL lockout has simply given me too much time to think. Perhaps I need some wild free agency spending, like a good dose of smelling salts, to perk me up, a Hall of Fame or pre-season game or two to get my blood stirring, or to see the Redskins rush from that giant helmet onto FedEx Field turf to feel that familiar surge of adrenaline again.
The moment I do not see you a part of this message board, that is the moment I might realise that you are gone. You cannot spend your days talking about something that you no longer have interest in. If you do, well, you still have a stake in it. I don't think your fandom is on life support, not yet anyways. I give you another couple of seasons. You'll pull through!
...and then, right at the end, after describing all the symptoms to the doctor, the patient diagnosed his own problem...
May the feasts of a thousand Burgundy & Gold clad cheerleaders, mud wrestle your doubtful thoughts into submissive fandom, and free your soul from the wavered path of indifference.
Hail To The Redskins!!!
Boone, I'd like to watch you the instant of the first snap of the opening pre-season game against the Steelers.
I'd like to watch you sit perfectly still, no racing heartbeat, no sign of nervous "How are these new guys gonna look" anticipation, no sigh of relief combined with rapt attention as your mind races into "alright, Skins, show me something I can pin my hopes on."
I'd like see you look bored, jaded, a "ho-hum" expression on your face as if you were simply enduring something tedious and trivial.
I'd like to watch you do that-but I don't believe I'd be able to.
Because you wouldn't be ableto do it.
It's too deep in you, man.
Trust me, you won't be able to keep it from happening.
None of us will.
