    what happened after the 41-0 debacle in 2000?


    We gave a collective shrug. Seriously, we just came to expect it by then. Denny Green seemed destined to prime up the fan base and then kill us. While the shutout was more embarrassing for the team, it was taken much better by the fans. And the Vikes were underdogs going into that game, IIRC, so it made the whole thing easier for people I knew.

    Gophers hockey I guess still gets to me a little bit, and last year's NC game was a gut punch. Luckily we were in Myanmar at the time, and the game ended around 11 a.m. I spent the rest of the day with my wife and her family, and I didn't even bring up the result.

    Deep breath; it's only a game, it's only a game.

    2003 when the Red Sox lost to the Yankees in Game 7 I was destroyed. I walked around like a zombie for 2 weeks and that's when I said I will never again get involved in sports(heart and soul) like I had been.
