I've been making an effort to restrain myself from reacting when the Cowboys upset me. I have a little boy that's almost 2 years old, and he copies almost everything I do, so I don't want him breaking things every time the Cowboys let him down. If he does that, by the time he grows up he won't have anything. Anyway, here's the breakdown of what happened in my house.
1. ROY'S FUMBLE - I messed up here and let a dirty word slip out. I felt bad about it, but I shook it off and kept going.
2. NEWMAN GETTING BURNED - For a split second, I thought about throwing my laptop into the floor, but I got myself under control, calmly stood up and walked into the next room, and headbutted the wall. It made me feel much better.
3. BUEHLER'S MISSED FIELD GOAL - I stared silently at the screen like someone does in a movie when they're watching their house burn down.
Overall I was proud of myself. I felt like my experience mirrored this game to some extent. I started off terribly, but I fought through it and recovered well. At the end I could only sit and watch as the game just barely slipped away, but I still have some hope for my behavior in the future, just like I have hope for this team. I believe in Garrett and I think unless the bottom completely falls out, the job is his.
