Tears at Dinner

Alan in Toledo : 11/28/2017 6:52 pm
What a sad day. Wife & I both shed a few over dinner. What a terrible finish to a classy, productive career where a turd of a coach/human stumbles into the position of dumping on the face of the Giants franchise.

I halfway expect (hope?) to root for Jacksonville next year and to shed 61 years of bleeding blue. I was lucky to attend the 1956 and 1958 championship games with my dad and become a fan -- but this is too much.
I have lost all faith in this organization

On the success of your personal life if a two time super bowl winning multi millionaire since he could crawl gets benched can elicit true sadness.
Seriously?

delete this and save yourself some embarrassment.

Nobody died today.....all that happened was an athlete making $20 million/year to play a sport got benched. Eli will survive and I'm sure you will as well.
Hey I get it...

Fuck you high and mighty guys for ridiculing the way other fans “grieve”. It affects all of us differently. It sucks and it’s disappointing; there is no need to ridicule.

Grieve? GRIEVE??????

Sweet tap-dancing Christ, he didn't get CUT, he got BENCHED in a season that has gone so far down the crapper, it's been processed and coming back out the tap.

This is BY FAR, not the first time something like this has happened and won't be the last.

I think we should suspend posting on this site for the rest of the night.......starting with myself....(smh)

It's nothing like that. You can't bear an athlete being benched so you cry? If not crying over Eli being benched makes me some type of predator then sure sign me up. I'm a terrible person for not shedding tears over a grown man being asked to let someone else play a football game. I keep hoping you are just trolling and this can't be serious. It just can't be. You just made the butt fumble of all posts, this is Tommer and Hash stuff.

It was hard not to notice when I checked in during the Giants game later on at night. It didn't mean I was on all day long.

I'm sorry I forgot you were the one who decided who got to comment on anything. I donate to this clown show, but I don't get to comment because you say so? Fair enough, I shall stop donating and you can pick up what I give annually and then you can have the authority to dictate who does and does not comment. Ok Pumpkin?

a multimillionaire with 2 SB rings and a ticket to the HOF. If you want something to cry over tho, our once proud organization is now the laughing stock of the NFL. Today we went from a decent team having a crappy season to a classless embarassment.
The kids cried. Eli is their hero

Pinelands was great because you didn't have to try at anything. I loved every second of it. College was a breeze too. Nothing but a bunch of drug addict professors telling me what "ethnocentrism" was a billion times. That was an even bigger joke. Boom. I'm living the dream.

Thanksgiving is another overrated boring holiday. Gee, and what do people do on Thanksgiving? Watch football and my favorite team was playing that's why I was here, ya fucking tool.

I don't have a family or want to get married because...well, that's my choice. Killing it finicially. I'd rather it that way. So I guess the likes of B in ALB, Ten Ton Hammer, Danny Kannell and other long time posters were all losers for talking about their favorite team....on Thanksgiving. Such a sacred day and all.

not being a dick, but did you guys happen to video tape your tear filled dinner?

You can maybe use this to your benefit.

You can send the video to the Giants or Eli or tosh and wind up like the guy who cried and got to meet Osi. Flounder?

Are you putting me on the registered tear offender watch list in your town? So I will have to knock on everyone's door in Toledo and tell them that I am a vicious predator who pounces on tears. God I hope the Zips don't fall apart, you may toss yourself off a building, assuming the ladder doesn't intimidate you. On the plus side, I know a box of kleenex will hit the spot on christmas or hannukah or kwanza or whatever cry babies celebrate in December. Seriously you are a huge huge sopping wet baby, you don't deserve to follow this game or this team you fucking whiner.

He made some lame insult because I watched a football game and chatted with my online buddies on Thanksgiving and he made a big stink. We like to take funny shots at one another, nothing serious. Unless, of course, he's being serious. Hell, I don't even remember how Bungle and I became BBI enemies?

Besides I always thought that the phrase "to shed a tear" wasn't always meant to be taken literally but could simply be a means of expression of sadness.

Yesterday we had grown men weeping. Today we have a man and wife crying over dinner.

If the trend continues, I expect entire metropolitan communities to be lighting themselves up Waco-style in preparation for the Messiah's return in Jacksonville in '18. Full on retard rapture. New Jersey will smell a lot better. That's for sure.

The program will conclude with depster committing Seppuku in front of Gate A of the toaster during the Giants/Raiders game. No one will notice or care since the Giants are.traveling this week and, well, because it's dep.
