This is one of those cartoons that I pulled directly from my life. I was playing UNO with friends Saturday (as we watched IU lose to Michigan via score updates) and this exact scenario occurred, although no one was as angry as Chuck.
UNO is just one of those games that seems to either last five minutes or five hours, usually the latter. When you’ve reshuffled the deck for the tenth time, it’s time to do something else.
I’m pretty mellow today coming off of a brutal Colts loss. And yes, it was brutal, because it was a game we definitely should have won and had the opportunities to win. It wasn’t as bad as it could have been; the offense was awesome, as usual. Even though there were only 28 points on the board from us when time expired, we really had six amazing drives to score. The only reason we didn’t have more points was because two of our drives ended in fluke turnovers within ten yards of the end zone. I’m not worried about our offense. But when David Garrard can pick apart our defense and make it look easy, something is very, very wrong. And don’t get me started on the run defense. This has been a huge problem since 2006.
I’m tired of Peyton Manning yet again playing the best football of his life and getting absolutely no help from the defense. 28 points should be enough to beat Jacksonville. He can’t do it on his own. It’s so frustrating having the best quarterback in NFL history having another banner year and not having more to show for it than 2-2, 0-2 in the division. Figure it out, Colts, or it’s going to be a very long season.
Any fellow Colts fans out there want to vent? Who loves UNO? Let me know in the comments!
