    Question Coping with Loss

    This is especially for you lurkers and new members....I know how a few regulars deal with loss...they come here and vent until their fingers are numb!

    So how do you deal with the loss?

    I repress my anger under a veneer of calm until one day I plan on exploding and running naked across the field turf. Noone wants to see that.

    Therefore, I must learn better ways to cope.

    Let's hear it!!

    I used to lash out on this forum and behave, well, like a 12 year old girl who lost her tickets to the Beiber concert. Now days, I swill a couple O' Bud-Lights, post a whiney thought or two, and then start painting my models. After all, tommorrow is back to real life. Formations, 1SG's, and Army BS. The "Booty" thread doesn't hurt either.
    Tuco the world.....

    It is our 18th anniversary today. So many other things to be thankful for this is just a blip on the radar.

    I usually bitch to my wife. Then I try to put it back into perspective that it's just a sport and it's intended to entertain and if I really hated it and how it makes me feel when it doesn't go my way, I should stop watching.

    In the end, we went out for sushi. Here's the conclusion (This post reads better if you read slowly with dramatic pauses and play this in the background -http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3B49N46I39Y#t=3m05s):

    We are Vikings fans. We will always be Vikings fans. It doesn't matter if the team ends up in a different state due to stupid people and stupid politics, we are Vikings fans. This is our team. This will be our team. Some times, the ball isn't going to bounce our way. Some times, our front office is going to make a bad decision. Some times our team won't play as well as it should. Some times our coaches won't coach as well as they should. But this will always be our team. And I love our team. Skol.
