Alas, I Knew Him Well …


*Insert “Taps” played in a mournful bugle’s cry here*

Well … my football season’s over, for all practical purposes.  It was a fun seven-and-a-half minutes, though.  How’d your team do?

  1. Hey hey hey hey hey hey hey hey. Don’t get so discouraged. Miracles do happen. I remember, it seemed like a lifetime ago, this hotshot superstar QB playing in the NFL got injured in the second game of the season. His backup took the reigns of the team and ended up winning the Super Bowl that year. It doesn’t happen all the time, but it does happen. Keep hope alive.

  2. WIGSF — Oh, we remember WELL that team, that player, but we also know lightning doesn’t strike twice in the same place very often. And we know there’s a very resourceful coaching staff and a talented team behind this fallen hero. But we’re pragmatists, and try to be honest.

    With lower expectations, we can enjoy each win more and worry less about the losses.

    Thanks for the reminder, though. 🙂

  3. Dwight — I feel your pain, brother. The Pats beat the 31st worst team in the NFL by making a 4th quarter goal-line stand to keep the Chiefs out. I can’t wait until we play the Colts or, God save me from it, THE JETS.

  4. Bryce — You got it bud. It’s in the rest of that realm called “the real world” … you know, the one we’ve been told about that’s OUTSIDE our computers. 😉

  5. I love it that Dwight’s icon has a pointy head. How did the computer know??? 😀

    And way up there you said, “With lower expectations, we can enjoy each win more and worry less about the losses.” Right! Ha! Worry less about the losses. hahahaha.

  6. Sherri — Yeah. Wow. They beat the 31st worst team in the NFL. Goodness, what glory. 😉 Still, a win’s a win, right? And Cassel didn’t suck. That day. So we’ll see.

  7. Hey! Sorry about Brady. 😦 But the rest of the team still kicks butt so it’s not like the season is over, it just will be a little harder on the guys.

    My poor poor Texans on the other hand. Sheesh. At least we can use Houston had to be evacuated for Ike as an excuse for the next game. LOL

    Love ya! Raga

  8. Bloggy McStalker — Thanks, love. You’re too sweet for words. And the Texans are building. It’s going to take some time, but eventually they’ll get the glory back of their days as the HOUSTON OILERS, when Warren Moon threw TDs like they were goin’ out of style, and Earl Campbell ran over everything in his path, and Billy “White Shoes” Johnson wiggled his knees in the endzone. You’ll see. 🙂

  9. At least Matt Schaub and Sage Rosenfels are pretty decent quarterbacks and we did get some new blood on the team this year. I’ll hold my head up, but you have to do the same!

  10. KS — Oh, it’ll be fine. They’re always a threat, and Brady’s going to want to come back with a vengeance next year, because he won’t get a chance to avenge the Super Bowl this year. 🙂

  11. I knew the pangs of injury would hit Fantasy Leaguers and diehard fans hard at some point, but I didn’t expect it to happen so soon, and certainly not to Tom Brady. Pure tragedy in such unjust and ironic fashion, it feels as though the Football gods are playing their own sport.

  12. CV — It does. He’s not the only star down so far — Shawn Merriman comes to mind — but he’s the biggest name and highest impact player to his team to date.

    *Sigh* There’s always next year. 🙂

Hey, what's up? Tell me whatcha think!
