Well, after watching last night’s Gopher basketball game I realized that although Sports Tears in Our Beers is fitting (seeing as I did cry into my Indeed Stir Crazy last night) – The Any Blog would have been a better name.
Always Next Year: That has become so common a saying within my circle of friends; it’s almost our version of a secret handshake.
It’s sick really. Be it Gopher basketball, Gopher football, Vikings, Twins, Timberwolves; anything! It’s, “Well, there is always next year.” Why do we do this to ourselves? That’s the real question. Oh sure, watching it gives us an excuse to tell the gal, “I’ll do the dishes after the game, babe.” But so would watching reruns of Sex in The City.
And I suppose we like to bitch about things. If the teams were really good, what would we bitch about? Maybe about someone using a selfie stick on the parade route? I suppose that is something. Or maybe why everyone else hates us? That could be fun I guess.
I don’t know.
Either way, I’ll keep suffering like the rest of you Minnesota sports fans. Oh sure, I could walk away and find a new lover….but these teams have all my cd’s.
