Love, Fun and Football: Millions of Pieces

Jan 6, 2014

Millions of Pieces

Unless this is the first time you have ever, ever clicked onto my blog, you know I'm obsessed with football. And even if it is your first time over here?? The name of my blog probably gave that away at least a little bit. Regardless, today, my heart is broken into millions of tiny pieces. Tens of millions, to be exact! Oh, Bengals…. why, oh why did you have to lose??
I know some of you will roll your eyes and think I just need to get over it. You'll think I'm way too passionate about a 'silly sport' and that I should consider other interests. But it's my life! My job, day in and day out revolves around football. The hours I've been put in this season, and more specifically the past three weeks? I can't even begin to count them. ALL that work! For nothing! For a loss! Nights, weekends, holidays all spent with my job… It seems like maybe we weren't the ones who needed to be working so much.
So to be blunt? It sucks. Yes, I get to go back to a normal nine to five for a few months now, but a playoff loss is not what we wanted. It's not what I prepped for day after day. It's not why I dealt with rude customers and a stressful work environment. Sure, I'll be alright in a few days, or a week or so maybe… but right now, I'm hurting. I'm exhausted physically, mentally and emotionally! For no darn good reason.
So, I'll see you later football season, I'm sorry you had to leave this way.

  1. at least your team didn't blow such a HUGE halftime lead and lose by only 1 point
    sometimes being a Chiefs fan sucks

  2. Awwww lady I feel your pain, in some ways. While I don't work with my team, day in and day out, they always manage to break my heart come playoff time. I hope that soon you will feel better. But now is the time to wallow for sure. HUGS!

  6. Boo hiss! Sorry to hear about your Bengals! *hugs* take a few days and be a brat about it. Sometimes that helps a lot, not that I'm ever a brat when something doesn't go my way ;)

  7. Dang! I'm sorry it ended that way. But I do love that you're passionate about it. I don't mind football, but I really don't know a ton about it. (need to get on that with all these boys in my house!)

    I often wonder who you would pull for if you were an NC gal. Carolina? State? Duke? :)

  8. I was so thinking about you while watching yesterday :( I'm crazy over football too (even if mine is more college) and it never feels good to finish like that.

  11. Aw man. So sorry! What a let down. =(

  12. I was SO upset for you when they lost!! That THROW!! WHAT WAS THAT?! Ugh. You worked so hard - so many nights, weekends, holidays - so you have every right to be upset! Heck, I might cry for a week if FSU loses tonight and I have nothing invested! haha.

  13. The game was PAINFUL to watch. I think a lot of us were severely disappointed!

    ReplyDelete
  14. So sorry to hear about your team. It's always tough to watch your team fall esp if you work for them. I totally understand where you are coming from.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I thought about you the entire time I was watching the game, snowed in at work. Then I had to go watch the 49ers win, ugh! Keep smiling and know that in a few short months your life is going to get crazy again! ;)

  16. That game was bad to watch :( Hang in there! It will get better...I should know, I am a Browns fan ;)

  17. I was cheering so loud for the Bengals this weekend! Even my mom jumped in and I was thinking of you all day yesterday! It absolutely sucks when your favorite team loses but I hope you get to enjoy time with your hubby!

  18. I'm not a Bengals fan (or really any pro team so don't get mad lol), but when they lost, my heart just fell. I told my mom, 'Oh I feel so bad for Erin!'. She looked at me like 'who?!?!?!' Lol I still can't explain blog people to her. So sorry my dear. Here's to next season!

    ReplyDelete
  19. It was an all around bad sports weekend. First a Buckeyes loss then the Bengals. It's not okay. Can we PLEASE get a playoffs win? I was 8 the last time it happened. 8. Maybe the Reds could pull off something...I'm not getting my hopes up.

  20. It was a tough loss for sure!! But y'all had a great season!

    ReplyDelete
  21. As soon as my Eagles lost, I was like okay Bengals time!!! For Kayla and Erin! I'm so sorry :(

  22. My stepdad, brother and I were yelling at the TV the whole game, My heart sank each time Dalton got intercepted. What a letdown.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm really sorry I made your team lose. I'm really, really sorry. :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. I'm sorry friend! :( I was hoping you'd keep winning!!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. It hurt. We didn't even watch the last 4 minutes of the game. John just couldn't bear to see the end. I'm sorry friend! The whole city of Cincinnati and beyond was rooting for them. Hope you perk up soon!

    ReplyDelete
  26. That was not fun to watch. I was thinkin that this was the year they get over that hump & get that victory. Man, I totally understand why you're upset. When a sport becomes a part of your life, you feel lost or incomplete when the season comes to an end.

  27. I feel like I'll feel that way if Auburn loses tonight... and I don't even invest any time to Auburn (besides game watching) so I can imagine how defeated you feel. There's always next season though!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I don't know ANYTHING about football but I do know that must suck for you! Sorry for you!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Awwww!!! I'm emotionally invested in my Saints this way. Feel your pain sista!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Oh, Bengals. :-( I am right there with you. I say mourn all you need. I'm pretty heartbroken myself over it. They definitely could have came back and won that.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I was so sad watching the second half of that game yesterday and honestly I was mostly sad for YOU. Losing sucks...it just does. But your work was not for nothing my friend. You did YOUR best and that's all you can do! Maybe now we can hang out. That should cheer you up right? Right?! Haha.

  32. Girl, I feel your pain! I was really rooting for you yesterday since, ya know... Cowboys failed and all. Being a football fan is stressful!

  33. I can't believe they lost. I'm sorry the season is over for you.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Ughhhh sucks, sucks, sucks!!! I'm trying to think of a bright side, but lets be honest, it's hard to think of those since the playoffs are still going on!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Aw! I saw the end of the game and was so sad. :( Cheer up, sweetheart. I hate to see you sad!

    ReplyDelete
  36. I was stuck at work per usual but I kept an eye on the game whenever I had a chance and I was so heartbroken for you :(

    ReplyDelete
  37. We watched the first little bit of the game, but when B left to go to work I didn't watch any tv...until the Bachelor came on...ha! Whoops! Hate that they lost!! B said to get him a shirt or something ;) hahahah! Hate that they lost, but maybe you will be able to breathe & see your hubby a little more now!

    ReplyDelete
  38. I was hoping they would make it last the first round...apparently not. So frustrated!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. As a fellow Bengals Fan I was so looking forward to the possibility of making it past the first round, maybe next year though.

  40. My boyfriend surprised me with tickets and I was so excited and optimistic (for once). I had to keep reminding myself to act somewhat pleasant because he was the one who bought the tickets...it's tough to pretend not to be devastated. I'm so sorry, girl. :(

    ReplyDelete
  41. It was such a bummer :(. Such a sad way to end a great season! Our theory is that it will be way more fun to go to the Super Bowl next year when it is in Arizona! ��

    ReplyDelete
  42. I feel ya friend. While I don't work in football, I take it very seriously and often get made fun of for how upset I get over it. When you guys crushed our (Ravens) playoff hopes, and we knew we wouldn't be going to the playoffs this year, I felt SO unbelievably sad. It's weird how attached we get to sports, but I love it :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. I totally understand this feeling and it sucks! The Reds broke my heart at the end of the past two seasons. I actually cried when they lost that Wild Card game in October! It's weird to be so emotionally invested in a sports team. I hate saying "there is always next year." I don't want to wait through a whole new season...just win now! Haha!

    ReplyDelete
  44. What a devastating loss! I truly couldn't believe it! I can only imagine the agony at PBS...boo :(

    ReplyDelete
  45. I thought of you after that game :( isn't it crazy how we can think of a blogging buddy like that. lol. sorry for the loss dude...and sorry for all the hours you put in for nothing....well, who is your "back-up" team you're rooting for?

    ReplyDelete
  46. As a Packers fan, I feel your pain. Losing at Lambeau at all left me devestated! As my dad days (to try and make me feel better) 'there is always next year' :)
