Melancholy (football) baby

I'll never root for Oklahoma University's football team, but I can certainly appreciate talent — in the athletes and the coaches — when I see it.  The Sooners beat the 'Horns like the proverbial redheaded stepchild this weekend, and the 65-13 score gives an entirely misleading impression:   the game was not that close.  My congrats to the OU coaches, team, and fans.  And then the Titans whipped the Texans, albeit by normal instead of cosmic proportions; I still vaguely root for the Titans because of their Oilers history, and I wasn't surprised by the result, but it still left me grumbling. 

The dog — who has never gotten the concept that when she and I are the only living things in the room, I might scream with rage without being enraged at her, poor thing — probably suffered more than I did, but we'll both get over it, I 'spect.

LOL. And is this a bad place to post the results of the A&M game that day? *snicker* Poor Weiss. My son has the same problem when his grandfather yells and curses at the football games. He still occasionally comes to me wondering "why is Pawpaw yelling?"
