Absolutely Sickening

I'm literally sick at my stomach right now.

I just got through watching the Cowboy-Redskins game on Tivo. The Dallas defense was kicking major butt, and the Cowboys had what appeared to be a commanding 13-0 lead and a shutout in progress with 3:46 left in the game.

Then the impropable happened. Mark Brunell connected with Santana Moss twice for very long touchdown passes, to beat the Cowboys 14-13. It wouldn't be so bad, per se, if it weren't the hated Redskins. Salt in the wound. Insult to injury.

That missed field goal in the first quarter by Cortez ended up being huge.



  • So, not the plight of child labor around the world; not the demeaning treatment of women; not animal/child abuse, but losing to Redskins is the thing that makes you sick to your stomach? Yeah, me too

  • We almost turned the tv off, but there was that teeny tiny chance that something could happen in 4 seconds! Yeah, pretty sickening.

  • Yes...not feeding the hungry, nor healing the sick. Katrina smatrina, this was Cowboys football, more importantly Cowboys Vs. redskins football. It was like seeing a plant that you have spent that last year watching it grow, spending time, energy, and thought. Measuring it every now and then to see how far it has come since you measured it last, only to see your plant crapped on and then cut down by the same errant undocumented worker that had just taken your job because he will work for 5 dollars an hour less.....okay maybe not quite that dramatic, but still it sucked.

  • Well, when you get blown out, you can see it coming. It's a slow, fester that you can start coping with over the whole three hour period.

    This on the other hand was like someone sneaky up behind to slit your throat while you are soaking in the hot tub. Or driving all the way to Wally World only the find they are closed for renovations when you get there.
