Lose, Lose

Life is meaningless and full of pain.


Why do I watch football?

Don't be sad.
Your G-Men were an excellent proof for the Niners to show they're actually a force to be considered and not just riding the back of a terrible division. An honorable role that, you can be proud.

The Jets, well, there is always next week.

Kinda felt the Pats were going lay a can of whoopass on the Jets. They were due.

Giants... penalties, penalties, penalties. I know Manningham is a good receiver, but I really wish Ramses Barden would get more looks. And, why would Gilbride call any running plays that have Jacobs run to the sideline? He's too big and easy for any defense to react quickly to. The penalties were bad, but the play calling was worse.

Because it might inspire new ways to torture your characters?

(I suffered through the Bills not pulling it off against the hated Cowboys, and in recent years I've grown a soft spot for the Jets. I know enough of the feeling.)

At least the Niners are a good team this year.

(There's a reason my fantasy football team is named "I Hate This Game", and I use this icon...)

To the accursed Pats no less.

Hey, at least your team isn't the Bills. 44-7? Blech. There's a reason I can't get into football in western New York!

Hey Mr Martin, I love your books and it was a pleasure to watch my Patriots and Saintly Bill defeat Evil Big Rex and your Jets. I was at the Burlington Booksigning, near the front of the line wearing a Tom Brady Jersey, I doubt you remember, but I said it was just for you! Anyways, in all honesty I respect the Jets and I do like that you watch football. Enjoy the rest of the Giants season (but I hope not for the Jets- sorry they are in division rivals).

Oh, George! As a Cardinals fan,I can only say that sometimes your teams repay your devotion! And yours pay better than mine did. You lot won the Super Bowl once! We just.. y'know, got there once.

It's never that good after wins, and neither is it that bad after losses.

But being a fan of both the Giants & the Jets means it's a double whammy special when they both lose on the same day. The Giants are solid, but not elite. Manning is great, and the defense should be playoff-worthy. But they need a reliable running game. However, the Jets are overrated -- lacking the depth they had last year since that was an uncapped year. That means they'll promise more than they can deliver and tease you the rest of the year.

Ouch... even though I'm a 49ers fan.
The Jets looked tired and outmatched in the 4th quarter. The INTs took the life out of the Jets. The Giants/49ers was a better game, but the 49ers defense denied the Giants on that last drive. Eli did have a chance and I know all NY fans were counting on him. I do not envy the 5 game stretch the G-men are going through. NE, SF, Phily, NO and GB to top it off. The Jets schedule seems a lot more manageable through the end of the season.

You know why you watch football. You love it! Even when your teams lose you love it. I've read most of your posts after game days. You are a true fan. At least your teams lost to good opponents. It's not like you lost to Miami or Indy.

49ers are for real . . . They're going to beat the Packers in the NFC Championship and win the Superbowl!

I don't watch football but I happen to think you are awesome. That is all.
Nov. 14th, 2011 07:11 am (UTC)
It could be worse.

You could be a Redskins fan.

Tough games today. Giants game was close, was sure that they had it when Gore went down. Sanchez is just not executing....

Lol at your location. Accidentally clicked on it.... turns out its a real place! "Slough of Despond, Georgian Bluffs, ON N0H, Canada"

Sorry George. Jets have to lose again on Thursday. (Broncos fan here!)

My Mum asks herself this every week. At least you don't have to deal with her tease of a team, the Eagles.
Nov. 14th, 2011 08:38 am (UTC)
Oh, I know what you mean. I feel the same everytime my football team is smashed... :(

Cheer up, Mr. Martin! I'm sure your team will give you reasons to celebrate in the future! ^_^

At least...
your entire program/franchise is not on the verge of being dismantled. As a college football fan and Husker fan, I feel for Penn State fans, alumni, and faithful, but I am thoroughly disgusted that such evil was allowed to take place and persist. I suppose the only upside is that it puts things in perspective.

Besides, Jets don't have to worry. Do you know how hard it is to beat an NFL team 3 times in the same year? And the football Giants have to get completely healthy and adjusted before they get in their groove. S.F. seems to have that regular season magic that typically translates to postseason tragedy.

Love you and all that you do George. Good game today. I was chewing fingernails down to the batted pass.
Nov. 14th, 2011 11:16 am (UTC)
Yeah. Know what you mean, Mr. Martin.
Nov. 14th, 2011 12:43 pm (UTC)
I would say, "Because you're a guy" but not all guys like football and lots of women do, too.

I don't really pay attention to football, but I'm a Lion's fan, so I feel your pain.

Could be worse, you could be a Chiefs fan. ;^D

Go Niners!

I feel your pain
As a Bills fan, I understand your feelings perfectly.

Why do I watch football?

Probably the same reason I do. Love of the team no matter how bad it gets. There are bright spots...sometimes. sigh

I know what you mean. Except more, because have you seen the Eagles this year?
