I'm ready for whatever comes, because I really don't care anymore and I'll be a better person, regardless. Besides, it never really happened. Did it!!!!!

I turned off TV was it before or after I drank some Koolaid that TexansSaint made me and I dont remeber much after that......I dont care what happened I dont want to know about it.

I may have buried it with my other tragic memory of my brother running over my teddy bear when I was three. who knows where that memory could be?

I'm in a stage of FEAR!!!!!!!!!! The friggin meatballs are 5-0 and the girls from the north are 4-1!! My worst football nightmare has been having to see those two play each other in the SB!! I get SEVERE palpatations just thinking about it!! Our TEXANS are what they are, pure and simple. I guess ya call that acceptance. I can either jump off the wagon or hang in there with um. I choose to hang in there and ride that wagon until I fall off from old age. I will never jump off.

I played the female role real well today. I went TEXAN gear shopping! Found some magnets for 2 bucks at WalMart, a really cute jacket for my granddaughter, a couple new tee's, some pencils to give out at work (gotta keep up the humor) a trailer hitch for which I have absolutely NO use for, one of those dye cut window shield things, and a badge holder for my badge at work. What can I say, I'm a glutton for punishment at work!

I might have to go into therapy though if the above mentioned teams meet each other in Feb. Might be the time to book a cruise!!

I've already told my buds that I will boycott the SB if this happens.

Jungle Bob said "you aren't coming to my annual Super Bowl bash?!"

And I replied "you're going to have a party for those two teams?!!"

(he won't now after I called him out about it )

Not only will I boycott that game, I will instruct DirectTV to come get the dish off my roof. No way can I watch any NFLN if that game were to occur. All they would talk about is the two teams that I can't stand!

You know, that prediction reminds me some of thinking that the way the 2005 season was shaping up that there was a very good chance that Vince Young could be going to the Titans, and all hades would break loose around here.

Ah, binge shopping, a great form of therapy! I decorated a golf cart with the stuff I bought after the Jags game. That helped.

I went to acceptance Sunday and fell right into anger Monday. I'm better now and should be ready for the Dolphin game by tomorrow.

I'm in a depression/disgusted stage with some anger mixed in there somewhere. Acceptance may never get there.

It's there a movie scene somewhere, I think it involves Steve Martin. He's looking at a house that he might buy, like a farmhouse or something. You hear an airplane in the distance and getting closer. The characters look up at the little single-engine plane as it gets alarmingly close and then watch it plow into the house. The first thing out of Martin's mouth is, "I'll take it!"

His reasoning being this house just had it's catastrophe and the odds are it'll never have another one, just can't be, right? Well, I feel like Steve Martin in that movie and another plane just rammed into the new home I just bought thinking it could never happen again, not this house of all houses.

I never truly came to terms with Buffalo and I believe this will fall into that category.

- Denial (this isn't happening to me!) When the clock made it to 0:00.
- Anger (why is this happening to me?) About 6:00 that evening.
- Bargaining (I promise I'll be a better person if...) 11:00 that night.
- Depression (I don't care anymore) Pretty much all of Monday.
- Acceptance (I'm ready for whatever comes) Sometime Tuesday - but I don't think I got much bargaining time... so I might have to trek back later.
