Memphis' Sports Station

My five stages… as a lifelong fan.

Author’s note: I know this picture has nothing to do with this post but this is one of the options that came up when I typed in “kids crying” so that I could illustrate my feeling about the Tiger’s loss. And this picture was way too good to pass up.

Regarding the Memphis Tigers loss to SMU I’ve gone through all five stages of grief in the Kubler-Ross Model…

Stage one: Denial.
No way! It’s SMU – THAT didn’t happen! It’s SMU! The bottom of the barrell. The team you get as a joke when you play NCAA basketball on PS3.

Stage two: Anger.
We lost to freakin’ SMU. What kind of weenies are we putting out there to get out strengthed by these low lifes?

Stage three: Bargaining.
It’s ok. They had UAB on the ropes at home too… We can still win this conference and you know what? If we don’t we’ll go to the NIT. Hey, Kentucky went to the NIT, brought in the #1 recruiting class and now they’re a top 5 team.

Stage four: Depression.
There’s a lot of happy people out there right now about the Tigers losing… fml.

Stage five: Acceptance
The future looks bright, this is a good learning experience. I accept things.
