Default The Five Stages of Texans Fan Grief

(1) Denial. (Watch Texans get ripped on opening day by the Steelers). Come on. We can't be that bad, are we? Certainly we've had to improve in another off season. Must have been just a bad game.

(2) Anger. (Watch the Rosencopter start to melt down against Indy on 10/5.) COME ON, SAGE! You have a big lead. DON'T do anything else too stupid or heroic. Just protect the damn ball and get some FIRST DOWNS!

(3) Bargaining. (See the Texans on the cusp of completing the Rosencopter meltdown on 10/5.) Please, God. We've suffered for so long. Just please help us find a way not to blow this game as well, and I'll go to church next Sunday before the game...

(4) Depression. (See the Texans get blasted by the Ravens.) These guys are really terrible. I hate that my team is so, so dismal. My friends who are Cowboys fans and Tacks/VY fans are making my life miserable. Time for another beer.

(5) Acceptance. (See Rosencopter start to drive the Texans down the field in the last two minutes of today's Colts game.) It's okay, Sage will throw a pick or someone will fumble. Hey, wait -- they made a play... still plenty of time, we know it will end badly. Wow, another first down. You know it's going to fall short, though. Oops, way to go Sage -- there it is, nice pick right into the hands of a defender. It's so much easier to take this when you aren't deluded into thinking they might actually win...

Default Re: The Five Stages of Texans Fan Grief

Very true.

Ive gotten so that I dont even watch the game all in one sitting anymore... ill watch half of the first quarter then find other things to do for a while so that I can come back and fast forward through the slow parts.

Today I watched two episodes of scrubs during the game.. this allowed me to skip all the commercials and "lollygagging" that goes on between downs.

A horrible performance is more easily accepted when you dont waste alot of time sitting there and letting it build up. Fast forwarding is the equivalent of pulling a bandaid off really quick rather than agonizing over it as you try to carefully remove it.

Muting can also ease the pain. I do not care to hear all the audibles of Peyton nor the play by play guys sounding so excited about how the Colts must have found something in the running game with Addai in the second half.

At least the announcers weren't much talking about the "Peyton Manning comeback magic" after the first Indy game like they so often do about him. They knew Manning didn't take it away as much as Sage and Company gave it to them.

I'm making pasta and shrimp for supper. Then I'm going to watch some old SG-1 DVDs from their early seasons when they were good.

Oh wait, what were we talking about?

I didn't see the one that accounts for where I'm at right now.

I wanted to leave the house so bad after this game, that I volunteered to go shopping with my wife today knowing full well that it was gonna suck. I didn't even wait for her to invite me.
