I’m a little bit sad today. Not because Virginia Tech lost to UNC 56-45. I’m sad because I’m not particularly sad about the result. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not happy about it. But I’ve had a very hard time turning the emotions on this year.
Even for the UNC game, I didn’t have it, and you guys all know how I feel about that group. I know what my problem is. Football is supposed to be watched either in the stadium, at a game-watching party with a group of friends, or in a sports bar with a bunch of other fans. That’s fun, and it’s emotional. Instead, I’ve watched the first three games of this season by myself on my couch. It’s a lot harder to get yourself fired up as a fan. I’m supposed to be mad about the game right now, but I’m not, and as a fan I’m mad that I’m not mad.
So it stinks for me from a fan perspective. But from a writing perspective, I actually like it. I wrote my NC State column immediately after the game. Normally I don’t like to do that, because I want to let the emotion wear off before I go on record, but in that case there was no emotion...
