Who Was Laughing?

It was late enough in the game that it was obvious that the 'Skins were headed to 0-3 and the Fox camera caught one of the players on the sideline laughing and joking around with a team mate. Whoever this was should be released immediately or at a minimum put on the inactive list for the Raiders game.. I'm afraid this is indicative of the attitude on many teams, not just the Redskins. We lost, no big deal-I still made my 6 figures for 3 hours of "work". At least they should be taught to pretend to be upset when the tv cameras are rolling and 60,000 or so people still in the stands.

"Whoever undertakes to set himself up as a judge of truth and knowledge is shipwrecked by the laughter of the gods."

 

- Albert Einstein

 

"You can turn painful situations around through laughter.  If you can find humor in anything, even poverty, you can survive it."

 

- Bill Cosby

 

Laughter isn't a bad thing.  You are rightly upset, but this is an example of taking something out of context.

 

Calm down and relax.  Here's one more for you:

 

"Laughter and tear are both responses to frustration and exhaustion.  I myself prefer to laugh, since there is less cleaning up to do afterward."

 

- Kurt Vonnegut

There is a scene in Fever Pitch where Jimmy Fallon and his friends see members of the 2004 Red Sox team out eating dinner and laughing. This upsets his friends because earlier that night, they lost to the Yankees to fall to 0-3 in the ALCS. 

 

Fallon responds: "Why shouldn't they? They played hard, they did their best. I kind of envy these guys, you know. They understand something we don't. Their whole life isn't out on the field, its their job, its not an obsession."

 

Ever had a bad day at the office? I hope you never laughed or joked with a coworker during it. 

 

People need to remember that.

Couldn't have said it better myself. People take this as life or death. Yea, we are get excited when we will and get pissed off when the lose but i have grown up and take the game for what it is....a game. Being pissed off that they lost and ruining the rest of the day and not enjoying the time with family and friends is a thing of the past.
