It's clear that the whole town is in a collective state of mourning after the Ravens devastating loss yesterday, so it seemed only appropriate to share the 5 stages of grief.
Denial: “Wait! He missed? But he couldn’t have missed. It was from 32 yards. He’s made that kick a hundred times. It was a gimme, an automatic, a no brainer. . . Really? He missed?!?”
Anger: “Step aside Bob Irsay and Jeffrey Maier, Baltimore has a new public enemy number one and his name is Billy Cundiff.”*
Bargaining: “Can there be post game replay? Cause I’m pretty sure Lee Evans made that catch.”
Depression: “Ray Lewis is going to be 37 years old next season. Ed Reed is like a walking MASH unit. This was our last best shot and we blew it.”
Acceptance: “Try me again next week.”
*I’ve since forgiven Billy Cundiff and actually feel kinda sorry for the guy.
