What comforts you when things go badly with your team, when your team is eliminated, when your team does not make it to a tournament or an important goal? Discuss.
A good cursing at the team on tv. Then grabbing the keys to your car and driving with complete silence until finally coming around to realize that the players are just not worth getting pissed off over. So yeah thats what I did right after the 2nd goal was scored today. But I got some nice comfort from the people at work cause they know I'm a diehard and all I would talk about is the tournament. Then pretty girls at work also help ease the pain. :thumbsup: But really this tourney is gonna take a long time to get over. My friend came and picked me up today and we were store wandering and we ended up at a soccer store and this guy was amazed with my knowledge about the tournament and the guy practically offered me a job there. But it didnt comfort me when his dumbass coworker asked us if I saw Mutu's missed penalty, that immediately eliminated any chances of me working there. So now a lot of family time too will ease the pain but all we will talk about is the tournament p Then theres music. Football disappointments is the worst for me to get over because a big tourney only comes twice a year, or every 8 years if you're a Romanian, so its tough. But then I have comfort when I read what you guys have to say, cause I still everyday read on this forum and your comments just seriously make my day when I have doubts or questions. I really need to post more often. But I think I might take a break from football cause this touranment got the best of me emotionally. I felt like a tsunami hit me after the italy game, and then today just still in shock. But as Piti said, "life goes on."What comforts you when things go badly with your team, when your team is eliminated, when your team does not make it to a tournament or an important goal? Discuss.
I'm more annoyed that we gave up like Dinamo did against Lazio, when we had so much potential...but seriously, a little prophylaxis goes a long way to not suffering too much. It is hard, but I think a little detachment is very important. Don't invest too much emotionally in football. It is something outside your control, and why attach your sense of happiness or self worth, in any way, to something that is out of your control...very unwise.
Have a good laugh about it, say "oh well, better luck next time" and that's it. Don't attach your happiness, or even your country's (or your own) sense of honor to this.
At the end of the day guys, this is just a game where grown men kick a round object around a pitch of grass.
If you choose otherwise, and attach your happiness to various football results, then you'll live the retched and pathetic existence of a crazed fan who's happiness and sense of self worth is attached to something totally beyond his control...and that my friends is a recipe for an emotional roller-coster that isn't good for the soul or mind. Been there and done that, and it ain't worth it, truly.
Hai Xtratime Romanian Football Forum!
And Cheer Up and CHOOSE to be HAPPY!
True. Our fans were among the best.What comforted me was that our supporters behaved themselves and represented us so nicely. They have earned a new reputation.
True. Our fans were among the best.
yes the harsh realities of life forces a certain level of maturity! (p.s. see my edit above )As a matter of fact, failing to qualify for 2002, 2004 and 2006 made me deal better with being eliminated at this Euro. It's true when they say that what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
Clearly we as fans learned a lot from those failures.yes the harsh realities of life forces a certain level of maturity! (p.s. see my edit above )
:thumbsup:Get slammed with your friends and enjoy mocking the losers of the next game
