Well, I was rooting for the Cardinals. If my team's not in it I usually pull for the underdogs. It's my way. I've got to say that the game ended up being very exciting after what looked like was sure to be another boring blowout. That 4th quarter was outstanding! Man, if not for that turnover going into the half I think the cards would have pulled off the shocker...and even so they still almost did. Gotta give 'em credit for coming back like they did. They could've easily folded going into that 4th quarter but they did not.
Just like me! Yes, there is a parallel, just gimme a second here folks. What I'm trying to say is that I'm not a quitter. That's right, ain't got no quit in me. I been knocked down, sure, but i get my skinny ass right back up. Sometimes it takes me awhile, y'know, like when I have my achilles removed to get at a bone spur or have my eye poked out and can't see straight for 8 months, but I'm going to come back, man. WHAT DOESN'T KILL YOU MAKES YOU STRONGER as the Native Americans would proudly exclaim.
I've been stabbed, shot, run over, poked, concussed (many times and in some very brutal ways), insulted, stolen from (lawsuits pending), and ignored. Still here. Still standing. Just gets me more pissed off...more determined. And I will get you if you're one of those who've stole from me or slighted me. Rest assured. I will.
So I identify with the underdog. With those who have been dissed. And, yes, I realize you're out there saying, "Hey, man, we've all been dissed at one time or another, man...get over it." Nope. Not my way. I use it. It is my fuel. I have been dissed. Many a time...I do not like it. I have a motto...a mantra...and here it is...it is my code..."I'M ALL ABOUT FAIR AND REVENGE." It works for me. I am as standup a person as there is. You do right by me and you'll get right right back atcha tenfold. You screw me over and watch out. I will get my revenge. It may take some time but I do not forget.
So to all you "Cardinals" out there (and I'm speaking metaphorically here. And yes, I realize that it's not a perfect metaphor cuz those dudes all make sick money and most of us don't but just let me friggin' finish here alright?), you've got a simple choice...You can let the "getting knocked down" get you down and give up or you can get back up pissed off and do something about it. You're a winner or you're a loser. It's simple. And just hoisting that trophy doesn't always make you the winner, folks. Sometimes it's how you handle the loss. Sometimes it's your response to that loss that proves you to be the biggest winner of them all!
So, yeah, right now I'm a "Cardinal," man. But don't feel sorry for me or my Cardinal brethren. We're gonna fight and you have not heard the last from us!
p.s. See you at the New York Comic-Con this weekend! I'll be signing at the Top Shelf booth and Archie booth and strolling around.
