Man I'm so with ya on a certain level (although I'm still dumb enough to say I'll be doing the same thing next year no matter what).
What makes it rough for me personally is all the freakin travel. Our team sucks so bad and has for so long that I literally can remember the few wins I've had the pleasure of soaking up on the drive home. I want some wins dammit, playoffs? Playoffs? How about just a few wins when at home for starters? Homefield adavantage...wtf is that? It would mean no avoiding the NFL network on my XM which I LOVE listening to except for post loss. No getting let out of speeding tickets by cops who feel sorry for me after an epic beat down to a division rival (true story). No wasted gas, time and effort for a team that doesn't seem to be putting half as much effort into playing as I do into being a fan. No thousand miles of wear and tear on my truck only to be miserable the whole drive home. No totaling my truck on the way to Monday night games (with rival fans in my car no less) because deer walk out only to have to limp home after a humiliating chitstomping loss. (Christ I gave up my truck for you turds, the least you could do is show up and make me proud as fan...you know act like you give a crap).
Yep Masochism is a great way to put it. And yep I'll be coming for the beat down New York will put to us in January...masochism indeed. Not exactly the brightest bulb in the box am I?
So, my early night (Sunday) followed by a day mowing, gardening, weeding, fertilising, re-planting, etc, was well worth the effort then. Better than being up in the wee early hours sitting through another Redskins loss.17-16 lost on a botched XP snap and a missed 35 and 24 yard FG. Shouldn't have even been close...same ole same ole. The redskins found a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory once again. The Bucs did nothing to win that game.
Thats the truly the best description right now, snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, just when I started to think " hey we have some good things happening here" we literally give them the game.17-16 lost on a botched XP snap and a missed 35 and 24 yard FG. Shouldn't have even been close...same ole same ole. The redskins found a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory once again. The Bucs did nothing to win that game.
I won't make the obvious quip. and group think has never been my spiel.when you're told the same thing by multiple people I think maybe its time to look in the mirror.
and with that..like other people have said..Im done.
Posted via BGO Mobile DeviceI just turned 40 a few weeks ago and one of the things asked of me was if I was going to keep wasting so much money on all these road trips to watch a crappy team play. Even with all the crappy play I enjoy the full day way too much to give it up yet. Plus my boys are 4 and 7 and only a few years away from being able to join me occasionally.
yea we should do a "BGOfest"
Hogfest turned into a pain in the ass because of all the "politics" that got involved, but it was a heck of a lot of fun those first several years.
Hey you guys ever talk to Blade? I know he sorta checked out a few years back. How's he doing? I haven't heard from him since Stephan/Punishment died.
