After years of following my beloved Bengals all trough the off seasons too, I have decided to take a little time off. I enjoy everyone here and their opinions, but I can't take this heart break anymore. I've poured my heart and soul into this team to only be let down once again. I can't take it anymore. Call me a quitter, but everyone thinks I'm absolutely insane. I bleed orange and black and can't show it anymore. I argue with everyone about this team and they make me look like an idiot.
So I choose to stay quite and let the team do the talking for now on. This includes me logging on to the CJ. I found that when I come to this site, I tend to get carried away on the team that I love. I tell every one that it's going to be different, but it isn't. I love conversing with everyone, but it pours into day to day activities. If I stay away, it might help me manage my reality and life. I hate to be wrong and an idiot. It's just a pet peeve of mine.
I predicted this team would go 8-8 this season only b/c of the schedule. They proved me wrong, but isn't a strong enough case to prove the rest of the Bengal nation that there is hope. I'm starting to doubt it too. They have worn on me. There hasn't been change here for quit some time and I think it's due. What will next year bring? Same ole' same ole'? Every year it's a let down and those around me has convinced me of it. We went 9-7 this year with a good chance of making a statement, but laid an egg, yet again.
If those of you can't see that there is a hump that can't be jumped over with the coaches we have(Marvin Lewis) then your crazy. Marvin has been the best thing that has happened to the franchise in 20 years but there comes a time where that time has taken it's course.
With that being my last words for a while;
You have been a lot of fun for the last 3-4 years for me, but until some change happens, I don't want to have a heart attack. This place is like feeding a crackhead cocaine and I need to take control of my life. I've let it get way out of control. I'll still be lurking beyond and rooting for the Bengals, but quitely...
Believe me when I say this is for health reasons.
thanks CJ and all,
hope to see everyone in the Super Bowl soon and to prove everyone wrong. Until then, you'll recognize me with a different username instead of WHYUS!!, b/c it'll call for a name change... (There I go again!)
I'm crying, but love ya all...
