In fact, I jokingly sent him a text saying, “Hey if Blount has 150 yards and a pair of touchdowns, and Garcon has 150 yards and a touchdown, I am back in business.”
And when Garcon scored his first touchdown, he quickly fired me a text before I could make the — what seemed gratuitous — “only 40 points to go” jokes. Needless to say, the texts got less jovial and then nonexistent once Blount scored on his 35-yard touchdown run. Even I did not want to jinx things by pointing out that I was now suddenly within striking distance.
But we all know how this turned out. Garcon could not catch another pass, Blount would not score again, and my hopes which had been mounting as the impossible drew closer to my grasp were now dashed. But that’s fantasy football, right?
So let’s all vent here. There is nothing I can say that will help you, but I will let you know that it feels better to get it out. Consider this one great big therapy couch, and the rest of us are here to help.
Let it out, you will feel better when you do.
