Football and Karma

Another thing I do not usually write about is sports. But, shit, after what happened today, I just have to write about this. Sooo, Chicago Bears......you got a gosh darn golden ticket handed to you today! Wow. Thank your lucky stars, and your referees! Detroit Lions, man, you were ROBBED. That last play was totally, 100%, a touch down! You won! But, you didn't. VonMom happened to be upstairs watching the second half of the game. Her response to that play? "Well, Von, you're right, that was a touch down, but I do not care because the Bears won! My boys won!" "Bad karma, VonMom, bad karma." However, The only reason it's ok is because of the totally missed call during the first half. The refs totally missed the face mask pull by a Detroit Lion. That's my opinion. I am again, just spitting out some words. But I will say, as a woman, that I'm really really happy with the new rule about not touching anyone above the shoulders. Makes it a personal foul or something. That's cool. That's a good rule. Let's just see if the Bears can do good things on their own going forward, without the help of messed up reps. Ok, rant over. *Ok, so on the news they explained that the receiver did not complete "the process" therefore no TD. Um, ok. To my eyes, and thousands of others, it was a TD*

It's a new rule, I think. The Packer game had a touchdown reviewed by the officials for the same reason. Although that one stood as a TD.

Also, as I was watching that replay, I could see the ball was loose when he went to the ground, and he kind of jumped up, leaving the ball behind. could have been a voluntary release of the ball, or maybe it was not, but I could see where they got the interpretation.

But then it was the Bears and the Lions, so I didn't care which way the call went....

HOLD ON TO THAT BALL!

Actually, when you think about it, it might be a good rule. In a general, rules for living sort of way.

In virtually all cases, one's failure to 'complete the process' results in animosity, discouragement and dissatisfaction. I have come to believe it is very important to always complete the process.

But up until now, people have been free to willy-nilly leave the process uncompleted. They could pretty much just stop anywhere in the process they wished, and walk away. Washing their hands of it all, leaving the other participants to stand, unfinished and unfulfilled, frustrated, thinking "Jerk didn't complete the process".

Blow that whistle, sez I...

What good is a football match if you can't punch your opponent in the head?

I actually feel a little bad for being so negative about a victory, but it's going to be a long season. Bad when it takes a federal appeal to win a home opener against Detroit.
