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.
