Only a game, Richard. Only a game.
Richard’s story is almost a week old. I thought I’d ignore it, but it seems like I can’t. He was on TEAM 1040 yesterday afternoon and the Vancouver Province ran another piece on him this morning.
Now, credit to Richard for realizing his actions weren’t cool and cutting off the source of his frustrations, but I still don’t understand why his story has garnered so much attention. Is he supposed to represent Canucks fans and 39 years of few successes? God I hope not. He snapped at his wife after his favorite sports team lost a game. I doubt many of us are like that. Actually, let me rephrase – I hope none of us are like that.
What do I do when the Canucks lose? I just think back to an old, favorite joke:
HER SIDE OF THE STORY
He was in an odd mood when I got to the bar. I thought it might have been my
fault because I was a bit late but he didn’t say anything much about it.
The conversation was quite slow going so I thought we should go off somewhere
more intimate so we could talk more privately. We went to this restaurant and
he was STILL acting funny. I tried to cheer him up and started to wonder
whether it was me or something else. I asked him, and he said no. But I
wasn’t really sure.
So in the cab on the way back to his house, I said that I love him and he
just put his arm around me. I didn’t know what the hell that meant because
you know he doesn’t say it back or anything. We finally got back to his place
and I was wondering if he was going to dump me!
So I tried to ask him about it but he just switched on the TV. Reluctantly, I
said I was going to go to sleep. Then after about 10 minutes, he joined me
and we had sex. But, he still seemed really distracted, so afterwards I just
wanted to leave but I just cried myself to sleep. I just don’t know what he
thinks anymore. I wonder if he’s met someone else???
HIS SIDE OF THE STORY
The Canucks lost.
Felt kinda tired.
