When these sorts of losses happen, I go into the bunker. That’s how I deal. It’s tough to deal with some of the co-workers, but at least I don’t have to hear the talking heads on ESPN yammering away. I can’t even turn on ESPN on the radio in the truck. I just have it tuned to NPR for the week.
I’m in North Central PA, so I cannot lean on a ton of shoulders these days. Steeler and Eagle fans are everywhere. This site is helping, though. While I don’t go to any of the linked articles and analysis, I find great comfort in reading many of the post and comments from the readers. I especially appreciate the playoff analysis/wild cart hunt posts.
As a side note, I feel bad. In the comments, I noted some guys saying it would be crazy to have rooted for the Eagles. Well, I was rooting for the Eagles to beat the Giants. I really thought we could win the Pittsburgh game, and I just thought that the division was within reach. Personally, I hate the Eagles more than the other teams in the division. Its probably more a function of their fans, but . . .
