Dear Broncos fans, just let it be for a while, will ya?

Rationalization is a peculiar beast.  It is one of about a dozen or so immature defense mechanisms used by psychologists to decribe what humans do to avoid confronting the emotional pain that lies within.  In this case, we essentially we state Fact A that only has a tangential relationship to what we are really talking about, and feel placated that Fact A was beyond our control.  Case in point.  We lost the game.  Fact A = we lost because we played poor defense.  While true, it is also proper to stand up and say we got robbed.  It's ok to be angry.  And I will happily project(another immature defense mechanism) the anger I have to the Broncos. 

Now, is it just me or does anyone else not want to hear a donkey's fan talk about how our defense didn't play well anyway?  If you wanna gloat and rub it in our faces then gloat and rub it in our faces.  But spare me the "it's ok" rationalization because, guess what, it's not ok.  My Hoculi Hatred(TM) has now turned toward the broncos. 

It's gonna hurt.  It's gotta hurt.  And it will be talked about.

Why is it in football it's considered uncooth to talk about how the game was robbed from us or to talk about how they played dirty?  I'll get over it by sunday, but the game was robbed if not by anything else then by sheer incompetence, ours and the officials'.  And the broncos always play dirty.  I was just surprised the chop block was flagged this time. 

Next time I will rationalize the summersalts I do over the grave that is the donkey's 2008 season by saying I am just getting my daily workout in.  See how rationalization works?  Isn't this fun?
