Where Has My Excitement Gone?

Posted: March 25, 2013 in Sports

It’s been a while since I’ve written.  I guess Philly sports have just taken everything out of me the last year.  Who would have thought that the most excitement we would have as Philly fans would be from a college basketball team from Florida Gulf Coast?  I know I didn’t, that’s for sure.

 I know there are a lot of things going on in the sports world but if you wanted to read a blog about any of it, you could pick from the 10,000 that write about the same thing every day.  If you read my blog, you know I do not like writing what everyone else does.   I guess for the time being, I’ll write about how I cannot get excited over not one of the 4 major sports teams in this city.  While everybody was excited about Andy Reid getting fired and the Chip Kelly era beginning.  I felt like blah.  While everybody is excited about the free agents the Eagles have landed and the upcoming draft, I say, “whatever”.  Oh hold on, I have to admit, I jumped for joy and ran around my office when Nnamdi drove his car out of town!  That lasted for about 20 minutes then I was back to not caring again.  I think this team has finally worn me down after the last 2 years.  When I read all the tweets about missing football, EaglesNation blah, blah, blah, I feel like just saying “SHUT UP PLEASE”.  I’m hoping as we get closer to the season, my feelings change but as of right now, I just don’t care about the Eagles.

As for the Phillies, the team that has really broken my heart over the last 4 years, I was actually getting excited about this upcoming season until every sports radio nitwit ruined it for me with the over dramatization of Roy Halladay’s career ending injury that he doesn’t have.  I already know that if one team pulls me back in it will be the Phillies only to rip my heart out in October.  Why should I even bother?  Ugh, this is so depressing. 

The Sixers,  **sigh**, the poor, poor Sixers.  After the way last season ended, I really looked forward to seeing them make another run this year especially since they got Andrew Bynum in a trade.  Welp, Mr. no knees himself never stepped foot on the court.  I could have come in and made a bigger impact on the team than he did this season.  Is anyone else as depressed as I am yet?

I remember being excited because even though we had the Sixers, the Flyers season was finally going to begin after the long strike.  We had hockey back guys!!!  That excitement lasted about as long as Kim K.’s marriage to Kris Humphries. 

So here I am, sitting here wondering when I’m going to get my excitement back for my Philly teams because I want to be happy and jolly like everyone else is over the Eagles and Phillies upcoming season.  Dammit, I want to be happy again.  I want to cheer E-A-G-L-E-S and it not be for the Florida Gulf Coast basketball team.
