Default Why so hard to de-attatch?

Whats with being a fan, it's like the Steelers control my mood week in and week out. Any of you guys feel the same?

I always continue to watch since that is what I do on Sunday afternoons in the fall but am not affected by the wins and losses once they are out of playoff contention. I suppose that is why I was not as ticked off after the Raider game (since that ended the season) and watched yesterday's crash & burn with morbid detachment.

It is difficult to be out of the playoff hunt before Thanksgiving but the Steelers have managed to do that twice in the last four years by playing horribly in October in 2003 and 2006. Shrewd scheduling by NBC and ESPN to get the Steelers prime time performances out of the way early. The Browns-Steelers game in early December on a Thursday night certainly looks like a snoozer.

YES!!! Last week I was pissed off all week, Espically since one of my best friends is a raider fan. I have been a steeler fan my whole life . I'm 24 and I can mostly remeber just the cowher era. So i've been spoiled by winning seasons. This season is giving me an ulcer.

I'm a Bengals fan and also like the Steelers. Imagine how I feel right now.

I've been a Steeler fan since the Immaculate Reception. I even named my son Bradshaw.
The fate of the Steelers certainly dictates my moods on Sunday ie how many beers to have that day. And certainly dictates my moods on Mondays ie too many beers on Sunday. But thats as far as it goes. I begin to look foreward to the next game around Thurs/Fri of the next week and let it build from there. Every Sunday, no matter what, I have them on Pay-per-View and cheer and go crazy (my Mother-in-Law thinks I'm a psycho). C'est La Vie.

I normally can shake off the ill effects of a loss by the end of the day Monday. Not this year, the losses to Oakland, Cincy, and now Denver are haunting me. I am ashamed to admit that it does affect my mood when dealing with people who don't even care about football. It is something I need to work on.

I pastor a church in Oxford, Ohio, and know sometimes I go there on Sunday evenings in a bad mood because of how the Bengals and Steelers games come out. It's the guy and/or fan in us, as it probably isn't limited to men.

I'm depressed. On the bright side the Steelers don't have any more feet they can shoot. They blew them all off last game.

Not only that, in the 2007 draft with no playoff spot this year we'll have a high draft pick.

I try to move on from losses as soon as they happen. I try not to let it control my life.
