RELAX and Let it Happen
After we manhandled the Teabaggers it hit me. I thought to myself, "Oh no, it's happening again." We're at a point where we don't have any competition in the league. I guess it goes in cycles. Teams come and go, but it always sucks to come to the realization that we're men among boys in this league. We know we're good, but why can't anyone at least be close to us? The Teabaggers used to be there, but they peaked too early. After they beat us in the championship two seasons ago, they felt like they were on top of the world, they had a little swagger, and they earned it, but now that doesn't matter, and they're back to getting whooped by a far superior team.
They're like that girl in 8th grade who is the first girl to get boobs over the summer. You see her in the hall at her locker and you're like damn, ol' girl went and got her some bitties during summer break. She was popular before, but now she's the girl everyone want to get to second base with. Her acne has cleared up so even when you're not staring at her boobs you can look at her face and not be afraid. But then something happens when you get to high school. Somewhere, somehow, she just lost it. It's sad at first, but then people forget that she actually used to be worthwhile. She makes good grades, has a great personality, but no one cares about that. Just like the Teabaggers. They have cute shirts, everyone knows the game and what they should or shouldn't do, but no one cares because they can't win the big games anymore. Maybe they'll have another growth spurt and be able to challenge us during the playoffs, but last Thursday showed that they are a long way off.
So is there anyone out there who can give us any competition? We'll be waiting. Until then, Relax and Let it Happen.
