Mason NEEDS this, Pistons, after all you've put him through
An RR interview where the interviewer actually talks about football?
I was just e-mailed pictures of my three year old daughter wearing an OSU cheerleader outfit, pompons, and even one of those damn block-o decals on her face. Normally this would be cause for a lynching, but it was sent to me by my parents who are watching her today. Although I continue to fight, my 8 year old daughter has already fallen victim to such treachery and declares allegiance to TUOOS. My son, the champion of justice and all things pure that he is, has stayed blue. My son chose his allegiance through his own free will which I did not press, but others have chosen not to allow my daughters to choose without corruption.
Since scorched earth is not an option, I have to come up with other means by which to save my three year old from falling to the dark side. A dangerous and decisive moment is upon my home and I need help.
Any Cognitive Psychiatrists out there that can help me?
I am honestly anxious today -- and it's because of Saturday's game. I have this "Obsessed: Made for A&E TV" fear (yes, fear!) of my Michigan Football Team. This is very new for me (and at 35 I've been obsessed for a very long time).
After years of excitement and anticipation for the start of Michigan football, with dreams of glorious 10-win seasons, conference championships, Rose Bowl Births, 49-3 victories over Sparty, and 10-2-1 records against Ohio St., I now face the all too familiar reality of possible "doom." Even in RR's first year there was optimism against Utah that it was the start of something new, and good. And last year the 4-0 start sure made me believe that 8-4 and a New Year's Day bowl was a lock.
Now, instead of anticipation, I find myself anxious and the "what-if" of an 0-1 or 0-2 start with fears of 0-3 records against the likes of traditional powerhouse programs like Purdue and Illinois (teams I grew up watching my Wolverines beat by 30) and 0-3 against MSU --- WTF.
A 6-0 start can cure all. But the fear of a 3-3 start hangs over my head like the 2008 and 2009 season will forever scar me.
Will success be sweeter when it arrives --- yes (and it will arrive). But will the pain be so much more brutal in year three if we limp our way to another 5-7 or even 6-6 season --- yes. Until then, I need to tap the walls and dishwasher 134 times each to ward off any chance of losing to UCONN.
Please, Denard &Tate, GERG, Daryl, and Roh-Martin-RVB make it all stop.
After that post yesterday, I am a little worried about him!
I was wondering if someone can recommend a good game day twitter feed to follow (I wont be able to watch the game but would like as many updates on my phone as possible). Thanks for the help.
It's obviously not me because I'm only in Chicago.
Where's everybody coming from?
