Comment Turned Post: Chins Up, Caps Fans

This comment was made by Ryan[still]heartseverythingCaps in the Game 7 Post, Look Who Just Shit the Bed. Wiser words have never been featured on this blog.

I chose not to attend last night because the Caps had lost both of the other home games I went to. At the end of the second period I decided to, rather than watch the remainder of the game, listen to Kolbe's play-by-play as I drove laps around the beltway (which is what I do when I am experiencing HIGH levels of emotional distress after rush hour). As the final seconds ticked away and finally the horn sounded there was never a more serious thought in my head -I was going to commit fiery vehicular suicide. Fantasies of destruction and scenes from Michael Bay movies ran like escaped convicts through my conscience...

And then I came to my exit and drove home. And wrote Ted an email to tell him I love him...

Because I realized that there is no way, as shitty as I felt, there is no way my demoralization reached half of that felt by our players, coaches, and the man himself. Through this beautiful disaster we must all endure.


  1. stop being gay for sports just lost to the 8th seed its ok to be pissed off at the team and hate them for a bit.

    Meh. I think it is reasonable to be upset and I won't stand in anyone's way over it. I just think being pissed is an excercise in futility when I'm just going to end up "being gay" for them again anyway.

    I agree. I live in Dupont and see much more gay things on a daily basis than people being sad because the Caps lost. There is always next year, and we are going to be damn good.
