Let me preface this post by saying this. This is not an attempt to justify my unhealthy love for the Dallas Cowboys. I'm just trying to gauge the obsession level of the rest of the bloggers, so I can evaluate my own mental and emotional health.
I don't know about any of you, but a person can usually know whether the Cowboys won or lost by just looking at my face until about Wednesday. That's about how long it takes for a win or loss to wear off for me. I almost wish I didn't love them as much as I do but I can't help it. When the Eagles beat us on Christmas Day in 2006, I seriously had to be talked into attending Christmas festivities at my Mom's house. When they lose, I drink like my wife left me, I occasionally break things. Mondays at work I come in early and get right into my truck, so I'm not tempted to beat down the first Cheifs or Raiders fan who has the audacity to say "Heee, Heee... what happened to your Cowgirls man?"
I was just wondering about you guys, I know I am sick but are any of you? Do you break things? Do you yell at the TV? Do you become oblivious to the fact that your kids are chasing eachother with scissors when the game is on? Do you drink yourself into a stuper? Do you put on game tapes from the 90's when you don't want to face reality anymore? Now.....of course I wouldnt know, I'm just sayin'.
For those of you who are like me, why are we like this. I'm pretty sure for me it's the fact that I threw my scholarship away doing my best Pacman Jones impression back in college. What's your excuse?
