Subject:And so the Colts lost and I need to vent
Time:11:09 am.
I know I'm just an insane Colts fan, and yes, I was very upset and angry last night but now that I've had some more time to think about it - and gotten sleep, as I had only had 1 and a half hours - I feel more at peace with the decision.

It is painful to know that we -chose- to lose the game by pulling Peyton/Reggie/Dallas when we were only ahead by 5 points. Especially because I hadn't seen Peyton roughed much at all in the game, they seemed to be playing very well and getting rid of the ball fast. We even seemed to be playing better than the score shows as we missed the extra point and failed at the 2-point conversion, better even on defense as their only TD was a kickoff return for TD. It just sucks to know that we easily and definitely could have won the game, there is really no doubt in my mind.

HOWEVER

If we had to lose at all during the year I rather it to have been now. I mean, if we went 16-0 and then went 1 and done in the playoffs or lost in the AFC Championship round we would ALWAYS be as the 2007 Patriots only BIGGER failures. The truth is the ONLY reason why I really wanted 19-0 at all is because I wanted to be better than that team. But NOW at least, no matter what we do, it won't even be a comparison. We won't have to deal with the nonstop hype and pressure of being undefeated. And IF we win the super bowl we WILL have been better than the 2007 Patriots because we were the best, and WE know, no team beat OUR best. So what it really comes down to is that Polian and Caldwell don't give a damn about the Patriots, they're just doing what they think is best to win the SB. And in a lot of ways I can how going undefeated would really HURT the chances, with all the hype and blahblah.

The main thing I was worried about was losing momentum. Yes I wanted 19-0, but no where NEAR as much as just that I'm so freaking scared of resting starters. Our history has REPEATEDLY shown us that resting starters is NOT the answer and the ONLY thing it seems to do is take away any of our momentum and rythm and make us look crappy due to not playing hardly at all for 2 or 3 weeks. This is the MAIN problem with the Colts. I absolutely love the entire team and organization but I NEVER agreed with Dungy on this when he was the coach. I mean, in 2004-2008 we rested our starters/stars in the final games in EVERY season ASIDE from 2006 - because we were trying to get the bye week. And every single one of those seasons ended in playoff losses - almost all of them 1 and done, lost first game. ASIDE FROM 2006 WHEN WE WON THE SUPER BOWL. It is absurd to me to look at that and STILL think it's a good idea for our team. I GET that we would be shit without Peyton, I mean, if ANYTHING the loss to the Jets should CEMENT him being MVP because of how shitty we were without him (to be fair out Reggie and Dallas too, but STILL), but a loss is a loss and Peyton's a tough guy never NOT started, it's not like he's frail! He's played with a broken jaw against the Dolphins and that Redskins game in 2006! See, proof!




And after that game he went on to play amazingly and threw for 2 TDs in I believe it was 5 minutes and had another after that. While no, I would not want him to get injured - hurt his hand - or anything, I have a little more faith in my team's durability and they clearly WANT to play. The WORST part about that Jets game was having to WATCH them on the sidelines looking so freaking depressed.

HOWEVER

I am not mad at Caldwell. I'm really not. Yeah, I'm a little mad at Polian and annoyed at management in general, but, they COULD have only let the starters play one drive against the Jets. They COULD have rested the starters against the Jaguars. In fact, Dungy even said that he WOULD have pulled the starters after one drive against the Jags. And particularly since I WENT to that game I'm extremely grateful to Caldwell that they kept playing AND stayed undefeated longer than the Saints. But Peyton and co. stayed in to play and beat the Jags and played into like half way through the 3rd quarter to have the lead against the Jets. So really, to me, it seems like the Colts do not care about undefeated but they DO care about momentum. They let their offense get into rythm and play longer than one drive. I would really like to see us play at least a full quarter against the Bills as well. Because again, we would not be playing for undefeated but we NEVER WERE. We just play for the SB and in my opinion history has proven we NEED momentum and I just hope we're making the right decisions.

My final thoughts are firstly SHAME SHAME SHAAAAAME upon Colts fans I saw at the boards saying they HOPE the Colts go 1 and done in the playoffs to 'teach management a lesson'. I'm sorry, but WTF, you are horrible fans and for all your 'I'm ashamed to be a Colts fan' talk, I'M ashamed that you consider yourself fans! I was really shocked at how many people feel that way and really hope they get over themselves and go back to supporting the team as I alwaays will. And finally, POOR CURTIS PAINTER. I hope this doesn't screw with his mind, he's just a rookie QB who has never played one snap, force to go in for a healthy Peyton Manning against the league's number 1 pass defense and number 1 total defense. The fans were not boo-ing him and I feel so bad for him! Painter, I hope this doesn't screw you up, they would've booed ANYONE other than Peyton.

Okay, I feel better now and am done ranting :) As always, GO COLTS

For the third week in a row I have worn my Buccaneer patterned PJ pants and my Peyton Manning jersey while watching football all day Sunday.

For the third week in a row the Colts have won and the Bucs have only won 2 times because they had a bye week in between.

The point is, what I REALLY wanted to happen more than anything has happened.

I think I have to wear this combo every Sunday until the end of the season.

Subject:Mostly Greatness
Time:8:18 pm.
Mood: blah.
Wow, it's been a long time since I've updated, haha, I tend to do that a lot, don't I?

Anyway, life is mostly going fantastic. New car, new job, pretty much new life. I do seriously miss the people at my old job but I know I'll make new friends and I can always go visit them. And I'll be making more money for a better company so that's good. Yaay Publix, hah.

But there is just this one thing that's been bugging me. Okay, so, the store that I got my job at...my mom just happens to be the deli manager there. And she's really fantastic, the hardest and fastest worker I've ever seen, she's really awesome. So when I applied there she said she saw my application and that it looked good was in the highest level according to this test thing I had to take about being a good worker, basically a 'duh I don't blame my boss if I'm a horrible employee' kind of test.

But she also said that they were getting a LOT of applications so it was easy for mine to be buried. And she thought about it for several days and then decided she was going to ask the manager of the store about it. Not in a "YOU BETTER HIRE MY DAUGHTER" kind of way but a "Hey could you look at this one application if you have time" kind of thing, and she even asked him if it was appropriate first. He said definitely that he wanted to meet me and to come on in.

That was a few weeks ago and I went to the interview and talked to him and he hired me for Customer Service which is a lot harder job than just a cashier from what I've heard but sounds a lot like the Guest Services job I had at my other job. So I figured I was up to that, besides just being a regular cashier sounds really boring to do all day every day when I was used to doing cashier/guest services/framing/fabric/stocking at my other job. And everything there is great so far, I passed the cashier test and have my own code numbers and am doing great according to the people who were training me.

That's fantastic and not at all the problem.

The thing that bugs me is that, okay, my stepmom worked at Publix as a cashier for about 5 months, like, four years ago. So naturally she figures that she knows everything about how it works and before I even went in for the interview she was like 'you'll not get that position, that's a really good one and they only promote from within' and stuff which I thought was pessimistic but brushed off as she's mostly a pessimistic person.

(Oh something else that bugs me about her was that she asked if the reason I was changing jobs was because Brie - 17 year old stepsister/Dee's daughter - recently got a job and already made more than I was making at my other job I'd been at for, like, 4 years and it was like wtf? No, my life choices don't have everything to do with your daughter that I LOVE LOVE LOVE but that you talk about ALL the time and live vicariously through)

But ANYWAY, so, now that I actually got the job, both her AND MY DAD were 'joking' about how it was just nepitism and it was because of mom that I got that position. Now I'm kind of a non confrontational kind of person when things hurt my feelings or whatever so it was kind of a big thing for me when I flat out told my dad that those snide comments bothered me and how I didn't think they were true. He was quick to tell me that he's just joking but he STILL said that it was probably true anyway.

So it just seriously pisses me off but at the same time I'm worried that people at work are going to think that too...? I REALLY hope not because I'm new and don't know much yet about it and I don't want to step on any toes. Especially because a lot of people there already seem to assume that I know what I'm doing all the time. When, duh, ringing people is kind of obvious, but on everything else I'm brand new. Just feel a little nervous about all that so I think that's why those comments are bothering me.

And now I feel better having shared it. *lets out a breath*

Now I'm going to immerse myself in DAVID COOK stuff. Geez, I really am in love with the guy, he's just so funny and so talented. And, haha, I can't believe this, but I'm totally into -American Idol- fanfiction. And I used to hate RPS before the nfl and now this...I think I'm losing my mind. But I just love him and Michael Johns and any interaction between the two of them is amazing. I've even written some slash for them - a lot, four fics already! And that's just in...what, one month? That's a lot for me. Hah, thinking about it makes me feel better already. :)

So I finally updated my fic after taking much longer than I have yet.

But it's all good, at least I finally got it up.

AND NOW I HOPE THE PATRIOTS LOSE TOMORROW THAT WOULD BE SO AMAZING.

Even though I don't THINK they will. Blargh, stupid Brady and his stupid Patriots. Hah.

Time:12:49 am.
Mood: drained.
Okay, so, strangely enough (or maybe not) I'm actually still REALLY really absurdedly depressed about the Colts losing. So I'm actually going to make a post now where I don't say anything more about football! (OTHER THAN I WANT THE PATRIOTS TO LOOOSE!) *cough*

Oh, yeah, and just totally ignore my possible post to nfl_rps that I'll probably make tomorrow with an update. My ficcage does NOT count as talking about football as it's not real! - That's my story, anyway. ^^

SO ANYWAY NOT TALKING ABOUT FOOTBALL NOW BECAUSE THAT WILL MAKE ME DEPRESSED.

So, in other news...

Yaaaay! I was actually tagged by someone to do something! *feels special*
Specifically I was tagged by prettyparadox for this!


Rules:
A. List seven habits/quirks/facts about yourself
B. Tag seven people to do the same
C. Do not tag the person who tagged you or say that you tag 'whoever wants to do it'

I - I feel like using roman numerals. This goes along with stupid-kid-me one time complaining that I couldn't find the roman numeral keys on the keyboard.....yeah.
II - I read and write fanfiction and roleplay a lot. The strange(r) thing is that for -some- reason listening to Avril Lavigne always puts me in a really good mood to write. I have no idea -why-.
III - When I'm at work I'm -slightly- obsessive compulsive in that I have to have all my paperwork -perfect- an organized and I have all my money not only all facing the same direction but if I have time I'll organize it so that the old rumbled and gross bills are on top so I give them away first. And all the nice and new bills are on the very bottom where I can horde them for my job! Oh, yeah, and, whenever I text or IM or anything like that I -have- to use proper punctuation and capitalization. I don't care if it takes me -slightly- longer, I can't NOT do it.
IV - I have been a serious Star Wars fan for my entire life. I remember watching and loving the droids in the original ones when I was about 5 or so. I used to be in karate and I remember practicing forms with my brother while watching the speeder chase scene thinger with Luke and Leia on Endor.
V - My first NFL crush was on Steve Young when I was 5 years old.
VI - I -love- eating hot chocolate mix right out of the container. It's -way- better than drinking hot chocolate itself. Even if there are crunchy little marshmellows in it.
VII - When I was in 8th grade I skipped almost every Thursday because I just didn't feel like going. Apparently I was a good enough student for the teachers not to call my parents about it so I never got caught or in trouble for it.

And I tag: bucklerbri, may_aka_ed, my_cnnr, niee87, sophonica, tosdenkoff, and severalstories

Yeah, and even though I know most...probably all...of you won't do it and a few of you don't even use your LJs anymore...I don't have anyone else to put so deal with it! ^_^

Well....

*sigh*

Yesterday was both good at bad, though, honestly, mostly good. I was always rooting for the Packers - how could I not? I mean, if you watched that game, you can just SEE the light on Favre's face - he's having the time of his life. I think he's the player who enjoys the game far more than anyone else. You can just SEE the joy on his face when he's playing - I really do honestly love him and I'm so happy for him that he won. ^_^

NOW IF HE CAN JUST BEAT THE COWBOYS (assuming they beat the Giants) FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER AND GO TO THE SUPERBOWL WE'LL BE GOOD TO GO IN THE NFC.

paodhfn;oanbsdv;lsakndv;lks

STUPID PATS!

But even still...Is anyone even remotely surprised?

NO. No, we're not surprised.

SO the Pats beat the Jags. It was a REALLY good game! The first half was exciting and if it wasn't for that interception and that one penalty...who knows what might have happened?

But as I said in a PREVIOUS post....I've always wanted it to come down to the Colts and the Patriots.

Which simply means...

THE COLTS MUST MUST MUST MUST WIN. THE COLTS HAVE TO WIN. IF THE COLTS DON'T BE THE CHARGERS THAN I WILL DIE A LITTLE INSIDE (not really) BUT THEY MUST WIN PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE!!!!

*cough*

And then -that- would bring about what EVERYONE knew would happen since around week 10 or so-ish.

THE PACKERS AT THE COWBOYS

AND

THE COLTS AT THE PATRIOTS

Two games that I would care waaaay too much about. But, honestly, in the end...if anyone deserves to beat the Colts than it's gotta be the undefeated team - and likewise I think if there's anyone left who can stop the Patriots...it's the Colts.

THAT WILL BE WAY BIGGER THAN THE SUPERBOWL ANYWAY!

As long as the Colts get there - they HAVE to get there - PLEASE! *crosses fingers extra tightly*

Subject:SAD (Even More Football)
Time:2:09 am.
Mood: sad.
They lost.

That's extremely sad....but really not unexpected. I'm not CRUSHED because I knew they'd lose SOMETIME before going to the Super Bowl - they just aren't good enough for that. Not this year. Maybe the next. But at least now I don't have to watch the Bucs lose to the Cowboys, that'd just be painful. Now, at least, I can root for the Giants against them as I -like- Eli Manning and Michael Strahan anyway.

Now the NFC is almost lost to me...I just hope the Packers win and the Cowboys lose. But I don't care -that- much, really. (Though I doo love Favre)

NOW I ONLY CARE ABOUT ONE TEAM, REALLY, AND I CARE A LOT LOT LOT.








YOU GUYS MUST WIN!!

Subject:Yay More Football-ness!
Time:2:27 am.
Mood: creative.
Okay, well, so far so good as far as the playoffs go. Well, I would have preferred the Red Skins win, I guess, but I am HAPPY the Jags beat the Steelers. Now the MOST important game is tomorrow so PLEASE WIN BUCS! Even though that means they'll have to play at the Cowboys and THAT will be rough. Still, we can do it. ^^ I just hope the Chargers win as I'd actually much rather the Jags play the Pats and the Colts and the Chargers than the Colts have to play the Jags. They are on FIRE. Not that the Chargers'll be easy but...it is the playoffs.

Actually, in the end, I don't even really CARE, I just want the Bucs to win and the Colts to win. That's all I'm about. As, er, if you read my previous entry I'm sure you'd know. Haha.

And I even got another chapter of my fic out. I think one persons comments helped me to really focus on something that I've been trying to do all along. Whee, and now I even have the next planned out. I swear this is the most -together- I've ever been when writing, haha, that's actually kind of sad. ^_^
