Why Being a Fan Matters
 
Excellent article from a friend of mine regarding the playoff loss (and the ensuing five stages of grief) and fandom in general. You'll also notice a cameo of Kaylore's work from the "Photoshop Rahim Moore" thread. Anyway, enjoy:

DEPRESSION. You know you’re depressed when you can’t find joy in watching Mr. Bundchen and coach Belicheat go down, “slide-kicking” and scowling their way to defeat. Instead of celebrating the demise of the bizarrely tailored hoodie, I am left paralyzed by the stabbing pain of regret – “we should’ve beaten the team that is now in the Super Bowl.”

UGH, I said STABBING! And once again I’m reminded of the Ravens, and that soul-crushing game. <Side note: In January 2000, after Raven’s middle linebacker Ray Lewis fled the scene of a double homicide, police reports claim he ditched his blood-drenched “white suit.” Stabbing deaths aside, he should have gone to prison for wearing a white suit. a-hole.>

I understand the pain..These type of loss is very rare.
2 TD's by ST and we still lost the game.

I got severe headache after the loss..
I got up suddenly and checked the score that night just to make sure it really happened.
I am slowly recovering now..
I am angry at the NFL that allowed incompetent refs to officiate the game.
It's time to move on..I am confident that we will be in playoffs next season.
I hope Fox doesn't call conservative plays.

And it’s happiness that we get to share with others. Collective delight. Like theoretically being 9 months pregnant, at Mile High Stadium, popping and locking to House of Pain with two dudes dressed as “Dumb and Dumber” in the seats next to you, after Marion Barber inexplicably ran out of bounds, giving us new life. Come on, does it really get much better than that?

I mean come on Rahim, my one-year-old knows that under no circumstance do you let that receiver behind you (especially with Lennay Kekua playing corner)

Hahaha... well played!

Very good post rev. Was talking to Sir today about having a female on the podcasts next season. She would be a good choice. She's funny, knowledgeable, has a good history with the team going by this article. Just a thought. Either way good find sir.

It's not nice to potentially derail a thread with a stupid idea.

EDIT: Turns out the stupid idea wasn't Miss I's. She was just suggesting this person as a candidate for someone else's stupid idea. My apologies.

The best line, of that paragraph, was one you omitted:

Stabbing deaths aside, he should have gone to prison for wearing a white suit

That's brilliant stuff, right there...:thumbs:

The rest of the line is the best.

Ah, nice catch! It wasn't intentionally omitted... the < and > took it out from the post for some internet reason.

Probably had to do with a < toohighbrowformethwolfmaners > tag.

Damn, that is a great article. How the hell did you meet such a fine example of the human race Rev? Clinical Psychologist as well....

I would certainly participate more next year if she were to do the Podcasts!

OABB 01-24-2013 11:11 AM

I think the podcast needs magruder. maybe a conspiracy corner segment.

Rev was a patient of hers.. She specializes in erectile dysfunction. She cured him in one day.


She showed him a picture of himself shirtless:)

Let's not puff her ego up too much, shall we? I wouldn't want to be her husband dealing with that level of fall-out.

^ pretty much exactly the circumstance and precisely why OABB knows her too, but his condition is on-going.

This is excellent.

Dude, he lives with a Psycholgist who obviously is not an introvert. The level of fallout he already deals with could not be more problematic. I know :thumbs:

Plus, she writes from the heart and holds no punches. Probably a damn good outlet from the crap she deals with already every day in conjunction with dealing with a kid and a small horse (those dogs are huge).

Haha, that's gotta be better than the sheer suspense and wonder behind the quiet "Hmmm" you probably do while tapping your chin and walking away.
