I know, I know. I’m way behind. I am still stuck in post-Halloween hangover. Costumes are still not completely unpacked and put into storage and I’m already grappling with the fact that I’m one week away from being behind on Christmas. What the hell happened to November? I promise to post my Halloween wrap-ups in the next week.
I’m also still recovering from a really tough football weekend. I won’t lie. I had a meltdown by the end of the 3rd quarter of the Alabama-LSU game and exiled myself to my bathroom for the duration of the game, firmly believing I was a jinx to the team the longer I watched. E would run back to give me updates from time to time. I sat behind a locked door with the exhaust fan turned on so I could block out all football noise, temporarily uninstalled Bleacher Report from my phone so I couldn’t check the score or who had possession, wrote a Facebook rant, may or may not have called my friends “ass hats”, and rocked back and forth with a beer. I’m not proud of that but there it is. And we won. So I may exile myself again this Saturday when we play #1 ranked Mississippi State.
Alabama withstood LSU but Texas A&M beat Auburn, and Notre Dame went down to Arizona State. Even if you’re not a football fan, you will appreciate the latest round of social media meltdowns from this past weekend’s heart wrenching losses, brought to you by Roll Bama Roll.
Fans who got a double whammy of hatred for the opposing team and self-loathing for their own team became suicidal, turned on the adorable Geico pig, threatened assault on senior citizen coaches and accused leprechauns of sodomy! I also learned that watching Auburn football can give you the Ebola. Holy shit.
Who knew other team’s fans called Bama fans “Gumps”, as in Forrest, I guess? I didn’t.
It’s nice to know I wasn’t alone in my football meltdown. Roll Damn Tide. Also, fuck that Geico pig!
