Default To What Level Have You Exposed Yourself to the SB loss

everybody deals with the loss differently. had we won everyone here woulda watched all the highlights, re-watched the game, and re-lived the glory.

some people will totally avoid all media after such a loss.

im wondering what is the most popular.

I actually did change my viewing, I didnt watch any sports channel for a couple days, I figure why get bummed more. I also recently downgraded my channels to save money so I dont get NFL network anymore anyway. No more Warren Sapp facial expressions, I feel so lost.

Haven't turned on Sports Center, or anything for that matter since.

The only thing that I had the nerve to actually re-watch was the Mendenhall fumble someone posted in this forum. What got me was the "21-17" score in the corner of the screen with us driving. Tore me apart actually and I was pissed off I watched it to feel it all over again.

The closest I came to watching the game by game clips when I went to Wal-Mart to print out something for my girlfriend the next day. Wouldn't you know it, they had about 35 HD TV's in the Electronics section and they were showing the game with the volume turned up to its max. I had to sit there and listen to it while I tried to hurry my time there up. Terrible, haha.

I can go on forever. I fall into the " I avoided all media. Dont want to see anything of that horrible loss" category since the game. Still fresh IMHO.

I picked the fourth option, but I haven't re-watched the game multiple times...just once (so far). And I watched some of the post game stuff that came with what I downloaded, but fell asleep towards the end of it. I was never big on analyst shows though, I typically avoid them anyway...they're like The View (for men).

I've watched all the post game interviews on NFL.com though.

I did not watch ESPN again until Friday, and "Steel City Sadness" was on their list of topics and I immediately turned it off after about 10 seconds. I didn't watch ESPN again until yesterday, I have not turned on NFL Network (although I did check nfl.com for news but not until later in the week when there was more contract and draft news then SB news), didn't even listen to Mark Madden like I usually do until last Thursday, and the only sports related programming I have watched are NHL Network and Pens games, which haven't been too great either since the loss.

Probably never going to watch it again, losses are one thing but a SB loss hurts too much.

Watched all the normal stuff. The worst part was I told myself before this season started (If Rodgers plays well, I'll get his jersey), but now...I kinda can't.

My son fell asleep in my arms that night. Yep, takes all the bite out of it.
