It's Just Sports

I do get mad whenever my team loses and I say things like, "I am going to drown my sorrows because my team lost." However I am not going to take any extreme measures like going out to my local Applebee's and shooting somebody.

After the Saints and 49ers game, an Saints fan was so mad that he decided that he should go to the trunk and start shooting at a couple of 49er Fans. (Atlana 49ers Fan in Critical Condition)

I really want to know what it is really in the mind of some people who thinks that this is such a good idea, they are risking to spend the rest of their lives in jail for a football game? Because if Alex Smith is running for touchdowns, then I should do something to take myself out of society...riiight.

Sports is just entertainment for us. It is a way for most of us to get away from our reality for two to three hours. That is just it though, it is just entertainment. Once the match ends, life still goes on. Maybe Lebron had a point when he said that people can go on with their problem-filled lives. If someone plans on shooting up an Applebee's, there has to be some sort of problem with their lives that they can't deal with.

Things like what happened in Atlanta happen every so often, I remember when Auburn won the National Championship last year and an Alabama fan was so distraught that he killed a tree. People are so fanatical about their sports that it is scary, they would not mind taking a human's life for a game that shouldn't have any real consequence to them. Can't really change the human condition of this crazed fan-dom.

Maybe, I am one of the only people that think once the game is over, life still goes on. Sports should not really be in control of your life like this. They are all guys making money doing something that they are really good at. We should just appreciate the skills they have been blessed with and if our team should lose keep the gun in the trunk.

Well unless, you think jail is a safe place for yourself. That doesn't even sound right. Have fun with your anal rape sir...

My New Years Resolution.

A New Year is here and it is Resolution Time!!

I don’t blame people for making resolutions. It is a good way to start off the year, and it gives motivation to those that need it. The reason why resolutions end up failing is because maybe life altering things have happened. Maybe a relationship fails, death in the family, injuring yourself among others could keep people from succeed in their resolutions.

Or maybe people are procrasinators anyway and they never stick to the resolutions that they were going to do

I know people who actually stay true to their resolutions and they become better and successful people for it. Resolutions are a healthy thing to have if done correctly. Work hard and find the resources to do well. Don’t go on the unhealthy route, like if you are trying to lose weight, don’t try to be anorexia or bulimic. And if you want to make money and be rich, please don’t be a drug dealer or a bank robber.

My resolutions aren’t really anything important. They are really for me to feel better and not worry about people who want to be right. I told myself if I’m engaged in a political or religious argument then I’m going to yell 2 CHAINNNZZZZ and walk off.

I’m not too much of a fan of those arguments because there are too many views and people want to be right for better or worse even would end a friendship over it. Plus I don’t know nor care about a lot of those issues because there is no way that I can get the person to understand. So let me just stop it with some ignorance and it makes me feel better.


Another Resolutions is to keep myself of getting bent out of shape. Not only because it is a way to lose friends, it could also lead to other things that aren’t healthy.

For example, I gained a ton of weight last year. Mostly my fault because at times I was lazy and should have worked out more. Also I felt like there were problems with me and me thinking that people were out to get me and no one wanted to talk or interact with me. Even if it was imaginary in reality, I sometimes felt like most of the world was against me. So I would mask my disappointment and anger by eating and drinking a ton during the first part of the year. Not the most healthy thing I’ve ever done and a very shameful thing also.

Luckily, I’ve snapped out of it. And hopefully I will be eating better and not drinking as much, only on special occasions. And I’m glad for the friends that I have and I should be focused on them rather than trying to make other friends. I’ll stop, it seems like I’ve written this hundreds of times, but I probably should reiterate it. Once again Thank You for always being there for me.

It is a new year. It’s 2012 and the 27th year of my life. I’m not going to say that this is going to be the best year of my life but I am just going to make the best out of it.
