In need of some advice...
« on: September 29, 2013, 01:41:11 PM »
In sitting here, dumbfounded. I don't know what to say. I didn't have high expectations but I didn't think it'd be this bad. The giants are 0 and 4 and I am beside myself. I'm looking to jets fans, browns fans, heck even jaguar fans. How's the best way to deal with such times?

Oh come on! Tune yourself out of that situation.  You can be a fair-weather fan of some other team until you have something to cheer about on your team.

Two championships in six years, you have it pretty rough.  ::)

You may be too young to remember the Allie Sherman/Alex Webster era.

Sorry Vista, but I'm quite enjoying it this year.  Along with Pittsburgh going belly up.  The best thing is my Brother-in-law (huge Steelers fan) and I are going to the Pats-Steelers game in Nov.

I'm having a pretty good season so far. ;D

I guess the same way Giants fans dealt with it in all their other s***ty years.

Here in St. Louis, we haven't had a winning season since 2003, including several seasons with three wins or less. The best way I've found to deal with football futility is plan on doughing in about an hour before kickoff  :)
I set out running but I take my time.

Exactly. Not feeling bad at all for giant fans, or Pittsburg fans. I'm actually really enjoying it! :)

A real Giants fan would note that they are only 2 games out of first place with 12 to play(7 at home). As well as the fact that the last time they lost 4 straight, they won the super bowl.

I'm a Bucs fan, at least you guys have a quarterback and a coach.
