I need to ask you guys a question real quick. Remember, we’re in a safe place. We trust each other. We’re in the trust tree, with the nest…
OK here goes, I’m not crazy, right? I mean, I know I secretly run a hot blog out of my cubicle and just throw out ridiculous ideas all willy nilly on the Internet. That’s pretty crazy, but I mean I consider myself a relatively self-aware guy and even though I’ll say otherwise, I do care very much about what other people think of me. Like in social settings and stuff. Actually I’m usually the one that makes fun of all the weirdos behind their back, so I feel like that makes me normal, at least like 75% normal, right? The only reason I’m questioning my sanity is because everyone, and I mean literally EVERYONE that I’ve talked to about this Bengals vs. Browns game thinks the Bengals are going to lose tonight. Maybe I’m the crazy one, but how can that be? There’s zero chance the Bengals take their first L tonight. ZERO. Second string Johnny Manziel is starting again. Joe Haden, who is virtually the only hope the Browns had of negating our passing game is out with a concussion, as well as Donte Whitner (Hitner). The Browns are 2-6 and the Bengals are 7-0. The Browns are on the road. The Browns STINK. I know the history behind the primetime losses and last year’s Browns game and blah, blah blah, blah blah. Maybe I’d even buy into all that jazz if this team weren’t undefeated, but theoretically this team is still on the pursuit of perfection and they’re as locked in as any team I’ve ever seen. I’m not crazy to be thinking these thoughts, right? If I am, then I don’t want to be right. Put me in a strait jacket and throw me in a padded cell for the rest of my life. Just make sure I can still see the games on Sunday. I’m not trying to be funny for the sake of the blog or anything. I’m dead serious and this is certainly no laughing matter. Here’s your damn playlist.
Bonus track because Johnny Manziel is starting and because this is just an awesome song.
