Football Withdrawl Jones'
I'm not sure if you can help me but I try very hard to over come this dilema during the offseason but things look very bleak for me right now. You see, the problem becomes more and more difficult with the passing of every offseason, and I believe that this may just be the last season that I can take it anymore.
Plainly put, I'm a Seahawks Junkie. I became addicted at the tender young age of 16 when I would stand outside the local restaraunt lounge while playing pinball and listening to the bar erupt on every great Hawks play. I would race to the door and peek inside to catch a glimps of the replay and watch everybody getting crazy wishing I could go in and join them.
I'm 44 now and the anquish of the offseason just gets worse every year. During the offseason, I scower every website, newspaper or just about anything I can find to help me get thru. I have tried taping many games to get a fix here and there during the summer months when my symtoms get really bad. I'm irratable, miserable, moody and just plain nasty without a Hawks game to watch and its got to be the real deal, live. I'm just not sure how much longer I can go on.
Then, to make matters worse, the season goes by like a flash. Basketball and baseball seasons are so long and they help my problem to a certain degree. But alas, nothing seems to work to get me over the football withdrawl Jones'. I got it bad man.
I have a background pic on the puter of the Hawks, in the Temple of Doom, lined up at the 20 against the Donks and every so often I have an illusion of a man in motion or a flag being thrown. sometimes I see a man jump offsides, the QB do a hard count or maybe change the play at the line. I can see the fans rustling around in the stands or motion on sidelines like a coach calling in a play.
Does anybody know how can I beat these offseason blues? I am afraid there isn't much time left as it has taken its toll on me. Keep in mind, If I go to the pub to watch the game, you know I am there. I am the guy who gets everybody charged up. definitly the loudest guy in the place. With this in mind, do you have any suggestions, before its too late, to help me get thru the dry season?
