This was me today. It was honestly very, very surreal. I had to work but the game is on. Boss asked what I thought and I’ll eat some crow for the score but I just said, “Not worried. Lions could play like ass and they will still win. Double digits”
Going into halftime I said “guys, they’ve played like ass and the Bears are doing whatever they want and they’re still up four.”
Then it got weird. As seemingly everything was going wrong, I really didn’t blink or waiver. Meanwhile the people at work were having nuclear-Den Gameday Thread-type meltdowns. Wasn’t even giving it much thought to be honest. Just kept working and was glancing at the screen pretty frequently. But I had never even considered them losing them game.
I can’t think of a game like this in my life where no matter what, I was so indifferent to the thought of them not winning the game.
