The season is upon us. I think it worthwhile to walk down Memory Lane - that walk will (hopefully) help us appreciate The Team. It wasn't long ago that The Team wasn't good at all. Each week was a form of torture that inversely increased as the season/game deteriorated. I'll offer my bad behaviors from back then and want to hear yours. I can dismiss a portion of my behaviors to crashing a Harley Knucklehead into a concrete block wall in the early 70s. That replaced a portion of my skull with a plate. (Now you know why I'm a Knucklehead.)
It takes a minimum of three days for me to recover from a Team loss. During the game, and immediately after the game, I have expressed my "disappointment" in creative ways. During the Bad Old Days I:
Buried a beer bottle into the TV screen
Broke glasses, mugs, ashtrays,
Snapped a recliner back OFF shoving backwards in a moment's rage
Yelled at my dog - Truly sorry for that - he is my loyal companion and game time foot warmer
Yelled at my beautiful and Loving wife - She thought my outburst - "Amusing"
Remained in a Fit for weeks at a time
Crashed a car - distracted, thinking about game outcome - Loss
Burned a Jersey in effigy - Planned to burn it all - Considering replacement costs stopped me
Considered going "Postal" at Niner facilities - CONSIDERED only. I live in DC and never could actualize my frustration - but I did want to throttle someone
And, generically whined and complained for years.
What have you done to express your disappointment(s) when the Team loses?
