Tonight, on WBAL-TV News, they ran a cell phone survey asking viewers whether, when watching the Ravens, they prefer a blowout or a close game like last night. 72% of the respondents picked close game.
Don’t get me wrong. I like a good close football game as much as anyone. It’s exciting. I just don’t like it when it’s my team. When my team is playing I like total, unconditional dominance from the opening kick-off to the last play of the game, like the last time we thumped the Steelers on 9/11.
Last night I was so pumped up with adrenaline when the game ended around midnight it took me another hour to get to sleep.
A blowout would have been much more relaxing
