Sometimes The Bear Eats You

I see you sitting there with that look in your eye. It's that same look I see in the mirror every time I think I'm buying a bottle of Jack Daniels and it ends up being a bottle of Jack...well, you know. See, it's all about expectations. You look at that bottle of brown liquid and take for granted what's in there and you start planning you're next step before you even know what's in there. And when you find out, a) it's too late, and b) you're left with that empty feeling a thousand bottles of the good stuff couldn't fill.

Now I'll admit I don't know that much about football. All I really know is what I learned from that movie I was in with Shaq. He must be one tough dude. I don't think he ever wore pads. But anyway, I'll never forget a line from that movie. It goes a little something like this,"Every time I say it's a game, you say it's a business. And every time I say it's a business, you call it a game."I don't know what that means, really. But it's got a lot of angst to it. And I like that. It makes me wanna scream.Come to think of it, I don't believe Shaq was in that movie.

But you almost look afraid to scream. I know it hurts when reality doesn't meet up with your expectations. But I'll bet there's another one of those games this week. I'll bet it's against someone ranked higher than you and now you get a chance to play the spoiler. You remember how it was when you used to come out of nowhere and whoop someone! Alright then!! Put all that crap in the past and let me hear you scream!

See, don't you feel better already? Alright then! Let's get you out on the hood of that car and you just do what comes natural!
