I’m so disappointed…

Posted by Jason on November 24, 2008

…not so much in my lame-ass San Diego Chargers, but rather in myself. It’s not that my lack of faith brings the fan-power down and makes my teams consistently FAIL. I have plenty of faith, every year, but it’s not anything voodoo like that. What really pisses me off is that I allow myself to get so emotionally invested in my teams, even though I know they will always let me and the rest of San Diego down. Really, the only professional sports teams that have ever won a national championship are now gone. RIP San Diego Gulls and San Diego Soccers… you brought us some glory, and I thank you for that.

Now I’m an intelligent, educated human being (don’t aslk to my wife about this). Why haven’t I learned to emotionally detach myself and just enjoy watching sports for the entertainment value? I feel awful that I get into this foul, bitchy, zombie mood whenever the Chargers lose. I got over the Padres real quick: I just stopped watching in May.

I guess that’s what happens during depression… you feel depressed, then you get upset because you’re so depressed, and so on and so on. Well, at least I know that my woes will end in January sometime.

I’m so disappointed in myself.

    such is human nature

    even though I know they will always let me and the rest of San Diego down.
