Football

This "American Football" game has become a recent obsession. Every sunday, I watch it at a bar, cheering for the teams that most directly effect my fantasy football team. Then I come home and I play NCAA 2006 on the playstation and do a happy dance when I win and freak out when I lose.

Alas, this whole video game football thing is no good for me. I sit here, playing the computer and it feels like I have no control. I play well, making 1st downs and moving along the field, but given enough time, the computer will catch an interception or force a fumble and I can't seem to make that happen any less. I end up yelling at the game, and turn it off in frustration. This feels like unhealthy behavior and I think I need to stop. When I am playing against another human I handle the defeat a little better, but I think I prefer a game like grand thief auto where the world cheats in my favor.

That's a good question. Most likely, just stop thinking about football until next fall. I find it's easiest to just go cold turkey.

This is the first year that I've watched football every week. In past years, I end up skipping weeks here and there.

Fuck baseball, though.

Agreed. Computers who stack the odds against you are no fun at all.

I could rant all day about it. It doesn't feel like the computer has any skill in it's win, it just gets really lucky over and over again.
