duus Posted December 18, 2005 Report Share Posted December 18, 2005 OK, I'm going to lay it all on the line. I realize that I absolutely run the risk of my fellow board members ripping me for not being a homer ... for not confidently jawing and yelling smack at these guys here in Pittsburgh. But ... as we sit here about to conclude Week 15 in the NFL, having only 2 weeks to go after today, I am getting a VERY STRONG DOSE of:"there is almost no way the Bengals and Steelers will not face in the first round January 8""we have been there many times, and the Bengals will not handle their first trip to the playofss""we will not shoot ourselves in the foot again like in early December""you may have won the division, but we will win the war""you will have to hear from us for 12 months after January!" (the potential of that one really hurts!)"Chad will be shut down again, and we will win""we will win with The Bus in Cincy again"on and on and onAnd ... (here is the part where I need your help!) ... I'm starting to believe we will most definitely meet in the first round ... (and more help needed here!) ... I'm starting to lose some of my Orange and Black confidence that we will beat them. I know, I know ... how dare me think this way. I do KNOW that we can beat them ... I do KNOW that we should beat them ... I do KNOW that we are the better all-around team. BUT ... I am feeling almost sick to my stomach about this game. I so VERY MUCH hate the Steelers, I hate the team, I hate the players, I REALLY hate the coach, and I CANNOT STAND the obnoxious, over-bearing fans!!!!So, in the spirit of Christmas, I am calling upon each of my fellow board members to help put the cheer back in DUUS' Christmas! I need help! Where else should I go but to you guys to help me gain the confidence I need to ward off the overwhelming confidence of Steel Town? I know you guys will come through for me! Please don't take this as me not being a homer, etc. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THE BENGALS! I live for them to get back to the Super Bowl and win it!!!! I love the Orange and Black so much that I can't sleep most nights during the fall and winter. I travel hundreds of miles just to watch them play as often as I can!But, this town is wearing on me. These fans are wearing on me. I need some Orange and Black Christmas cheer from the guys that I trust will most likely provide it!Bring it, guys! Help out a friend stuck in the enemy's land.
