2013 Draft Confessional: Has this EJ pick made you an emotional mess?
Posted 06 May 2013 - 08:20 AM
I sat back and felt good about the pick. But why? Was it the buzz the pick generated? Was it how it surprised even me? Was it the player? Could it have been that this unknown coach knew something everyone else didn't see? Was the selection that brilliant?
Fast forward to today. I watch old FSU clips looking at our new guy. I am not disheartened but not overly impressed. However, he is glad to be here and he is ours. We want EJ to be a continuation of those super bowl teams - a time when our team mattered. When we had best in class players. I feel like I am waiting to go on vacation. It feels good waiting. My mind drifts...the eight hour car ride is no problem or the three hour wait in the airport. I want to milk this for all it's worth before I have to come back to work after my escape.
Gasp - What if it all goes wrong? The first few chapters in this book have been thrilling. My mind starts to wander...what if he busts? if that happens he will take down this coach with him...you mean we will have to bring in a new one again? Have mercy...

I'll just keep low expectations, and cross my fingers as hard as possible that we right the ship with this one.

A lot of TSW threads seem to be defacto therapy sessions for the disturbed.

For the sake of humanity that's a good thing.

You bury friends and family taken by accidents, cancer, and such. You learn to appreciate the simple diversion and camaraderie that sports and the occasional stiff drink can offer.
Being a Bills and Sabres fan for as long as I have been, and experiencing the crushing disappointments I have had following both I don't think I could dredge up that much emotion over the draft. After all the years and the many times I have stomped off vowing to end the relationship, both teams somehow manage to reel me back in no matter how many times I lie to myself and say that I just don't care any more. I guess hope does spring eternal. Maybe hope is just being really stubborn and staying the course even when life kicks you in the nads.
My advice, enjoy the ride. If the Bills draft makes you an emotional mess, then you are going to need to be seriously sedated to survive following this team.
