You always hate it when your teams lose. You hate it even more when they all lose on the same weekend.
Professionally, I have had an affinity toward the Cincinnati-based teams. I grew up in southeast Indiana in the city of Connersville, and my wonder years were in the mid-70's, when the "Big Red Machine" was at its peak, and when the Cincinnati Bengals were among the best in the NFL. Those two teams set my sports template southeastward. I did not transfer my loyalty to the Colts when they (dubiously) moved from Baltimore to Indianapols in 1984. Now I am an Indiana Pacer fan, and became a St. Louis Blues hockey fan in the mid-1980's.
I said all that to say this... with the exception of a Reds sweep, this was a lost weekend. Friday night, the North Knox Warriors lose a late lead, and lose to Sullivan. My beloved U-S National soccer team loses to Costa Rica on Friday night. Indiana loses to Navy Saturday night, and to top it all off, the Bengals lose an 11point fourth quarter lead, and lose to Chicago at Soldier Field.
Boy, talk about insecurity!! I look at myself and think "What have I done?" I laugh... but it makes me think... what do you do after a "mostly" lost weekend? You try to avoid sports radio to reopen the wounds, and you hope next weekend is better. At least the Bengals won't lose this weekend...they play Monday night at home against Pittsburgh. So there's something...
That's my take... I'm Tom Lee.
