Game Day Rituals


The Falcon Jedi

Recommended Posts

I'll start:

My game day ritual consists of helping blow this board up all night long while most of you are asleep. I take a nap at 8 AM, wake up about 12:30.

I go to the store to get more beer. Then I order a pizza for my dog.

I then proceed to sacrifice a buffalo to make buffalo wings out of. I use a very special wing sauce to flavor it just perfect. I put that in the oven for 1 hour, so by the end of the 1st QTR food is ready. I eat all of it during the commercial break so that I dont miss the beginning of the 2nd QTR.

Then after that I typically start beotching and complaining on the board. I create a new thread for every one of my thoughts, because each of my thoughts needs to be regarded individually and separately.

Then by half-time I get complaints from other posters and Mods telling me to shut it, and I respond to that for 15 minutes. Then the 3rd QTR starts and I usually shut it down until the game is over. Then after the game I either give a big hug of praise for the Falcons if we Won, or a big cup of angry piss if we lost. Then I post a little more until Monday morning. Then after that I calm down and take time to reflect on myself, and return to normal by Tuesday or Wednesday.

Then I start it all over again next week.

That's what I basically do.

Why you gone neg me like that, bro? :lol:

Seriously, I meant what I said about gameday. If you're one of the spammers, you need to shut it, don't post it, or just save it for later. ;)

Let me explain myself to you. When it comes GAME DAY. I get really involved in the Game. I get really emotional. I VENT MY THOUGHTS. That is what I do on Game Day.

Now if you are the kind of person that can sit and watch a Falcon football game like you are sitting in church, then that's You. But that is not Me. I am very passionate when the Game is On Sunday, and I like to talk about it.

Games start here at 10am in Arizona.

1.I wake up at 8am(before time change). Run 1.5 to 2 miles-makes room for beer/food.

2. With my 50" tv mounted on the wall, I bring out the bedroom 42" and the little girls room 32" flat screen to the living room and hook up all of the DTV boxes. Falcons go on the 50" with sound.

3. Shower/throw on one of my 6 jersey's.

4. Eat small breakfast

5. Get on the computer, look at rotoworld and listen to pregame commentary for any noteworthy injury updates-make sure my fantasy lineup is good.

6. about 9:50 to 10am I have my first beer. Can't start too early, we drink all the way through the nt game. Also everyone starts showing up right about kickoff...GEEZ IM FREAKING EXCITED!

If I'm fortunate enough to to be off on Sunday, I stumble to the sports bar across the street at 11:25 AM to make sure I get a seat with a good view of what TV the game is on. I drink like 2 gallons of sweet tea (one of the few joints in the DC area to actually serve, let alone brew their own Sweet tea) to hydrate myself for the copious amounts of beer I will drink when the game starts. Unfortunately with all of the caffeine i intake in the hour and a half wait, I'm usually shaking like Katherine Hepburn having a Nic fit in the middle of an epileptic seizure by kick-off. The bar has an amazing brunch, and their Steak Benedict has a respectable winning record when I eat it before a game, probably 15-4 if I had to guess.

Once the game starts, I usually order a Stella, Sam Adams, or whatever seasonal they have on draft. Molson Canadian, if funds are tight. I usually drink 4-5 beers at most if we win. A loss or a close game can easily turn to 7-10 pinter. The bar is packed with screaming Steeler and Redskin fans, I usually check the boards on my iPhone to get any info I miss from not getting audio for most games. If we win, I'm usually ecstatic, run home and have a swell day. A loss, usually my day ends on the couch in a dark den, devastated, usually waking up in time for the primetime game crossing my fingers for a NFC team to lose.

Every week is different, but late last season, there was one Ain'ts fan I would argue with, who would seriously overreact anytime the Ain'ts had a bad play.

NO joke! Sunday's are a blast. We usually have some sort of nice/tasty meal. Week 1 this year, Firehouse tacos. They are the best! Luckily for me, my wife cooks those so Ill have the day completely off. Week 2- Tri-tip. I would much rather sit in a nice smelling house, with couches, air conditioning and great food/cheap beer then sit on hard stools at a warm stinky Hooters that our tab rarely stays under $200 for 3 or 4 people. Ill have to post pictures when I get it all set up on Sunday.

It does sound like a great time, dude, no kidding. Unfortunately, my wife's been out of work w/medical issues the last couple of years. She's getting better now, and looking for a job, so hopefully my gamedays will improve. But they kinda been bland for the last little bit here. We have a decent place to entertain - just hard to do when you're watching every penny. (or at least to do it "right")

Good news/Bad news is, she's a Ravens fan, so she wants to go to that game at the Dome this year! Am hoping we make that dream come true for her, in a "bad dream" kinda way! :lol:

I keep it pretty simple, get up and fix my fantisy teams while I enjoy my coffee. Then I get dressed in my gameday gear in which only the jersey changes week in and week out. If I still have time to kill I flip around from ESPN to Fox to CBS to see if they have anything to say about our game. Then it is just trying to find a PIRATED VIDEO IS ILLEGAL and if no PIRATED VIDEO IS ILLEGAL can be found its Dave and Arch on the radio while I watch the lines move on NFL.com's gamecast. That all goes to **** some days if I have to get up early for church. Also a good energy drink is a must for me on gameday.

Buffo wings. For years I didn't know they could fly! I guess that's what makes them so spicy!

Sunday morning, central time, 9:30 A.M. Bloody Mary and my wife always says "Are you going to start drinking this early?" My response: "If you're gonna drink as much as I am you have to get an early start!" She doesn't get game day rituals.

Pre-game NFL Live and other shows, beer starts and volume increases through surround sound. Wife says "If you're going to be a jerk I'm going to the movies with my mother!"

Works every time. However since I'm in Florida, most of the time I go to a sports bar but I walk to my friend's condo and don't drive!!

Wait.

You have a tv, and you have cable, and if you're listening to Wes/Dave on the radio, you must be somewhat local to Atlanta. Why the video s.tream? :mellow:
