I completely understand this mentality:
Fan Blames Himself For Team Losing Game
SILVER SPRING, Md – The Washington Redskins lost today and its all Oliver Willis’ fault. The 25 year old fan failed to wear his lucky jersey, which caused his team to lose in the fourth quarter to the Carolina Panthers. “Stupidly I thought that what I wore during the game had nothing to do with the outcome. I assumed that it ws up to the coaches and players to win the game, but it’s pretty obvious I was wrong.”, said the lifelong hater of the Dallas Cowboys.
Willis’ mistake dropped the Redskins to 4-6 on the season and puts them on the brink of missing the playoffs yet again. “When I dropped that pass in the fourth quarter, I knew it was Oliver’s fault”, said Redskins wide receiver Darnerian McCants. “Sure, I get paid millions to catch the ball and I was wide open, but I can’t shake the feeling that Oliver is to blame.” Redskins head coach Steve Spurrier echoed McCants’ concerns: “You’ve got two choices – either I could have called better passing plays in the first half, or Oliver could have worn his lucky jersey. It doesn’t take a genius to realize that Oliver is the one who screwed up today.”
The Steelers meet the 9er’s tonight for MNF, and I didn’t know if it was appropriate to wear my new Steelers shirt, because I didn’t wear it last week when they broke their losing streak. Now I have to spend the whole day worrying about where I can watch the game. The Steelers are 1-0 when I watch at my friend Sean’s house, 1-4 when I watch at home, and 1-1 when I watch at my friend Chad’s house. Looks like I am off to Sean’s.
Also, I have no idea what sort of ritual I am supposed to go through tonight, because this is our first MNF game of the season. I have all my rituals down for the day games. This is quite a problem.
