I am flipping out

Sometimes it's a bad thing to be a huge fan of a team that's playing in a conference championship match...

As much as I tell people "I never expected us to win more than six games, beating the Titans was way over what I thought, so even if we lose this week I'm still happy for such a great season," I know that's not going to be how I feel Sunday night if the Ravens lose.

First off, it always hurts to get bumped from the playoffs. I don't care who you are. I wanna hear one Falcons fan tell me they were thrilled two Mondays ago - despite the fact their team was thought to maybe be a 4 win team this year. Not gonna happen. There are only ever fans of one team that are happy when their team's season ends.

Secondly, and more importantly, it's the Steelers!!! I hate them. I hate them so much it makes me angry at my hatred. I want to see them squirm. I want to see them shrivel up and disappear. I want to kick their heads in and pummel their bodies into a bloody, lifeless mass. And then after that I want to squash them into oblivion. Grrr... Just typing about them is firing me up.

And so it goes that this has possibly been the longest week of my life. It's not just that a way overachieving Ravens team plays Sunday night for the right to go to the Superbowl. It's that we have to go through our most bitter rival to do it.

For the final four minutes of the Titans game, I was shaking. Like, violently shaking...not this little nervous tick.

I'm almost there now.

And it's only Friday.



  1. If you were a real fan you'd be throwing up by now.

    So how many times does Flacco get rung up on Sunday? I say 5.

  2. the steelers will be the first team to go for 6 rings. No wonder chris hates them, they're the best run team in all of sports over the past 30 years.

  3. Can we re-name this the ravens blog? It seems that is all that's on here.

  4. You've got two Ravens fans of the three writers, and the Ravens are one of the four teams left. What do you expect?

    This blog will evolve. Right now it's in beta form, so we're writing about what we know and what we like. Next season I think you'll find it's far more balanced.
