In the NFL, after a devastating loss, you can witness dozens of grown men moping around the locker room thinking of what could have been.
As was the case on Sunday night, the New York Jets were, for the second year in a row, on the verge of being a SuperBowl participant. With history repeating itself, they again fell short of reaching the pinnacle of American football.
So what are a bunch 20 to 30 year-old guys suppose to do after their season ends. Some would say go home and ponder on the mistakes of the past year while others, namely my wife, believes that they are one step away from depression.
Early Monday morning, after their heart wrenching 24-19 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, the QB and WR were seen taken shots and buying an $1,100 bottle of champagne at the Juliet Supper Club in New York.
A drunken Braylon Edwards even grabbed the microphone shouting, “The Jets will back next season and we will go all the way to the Super Bowl.”
Just as I informed my wife after the game, and I’m quoting myself, “Yeah, the loss hurts, but these guys can only stay upset for a short period of time. After the loss, they soon realize the season is over, I don’t have anything to do for the next five months and I have millions of dollars in the bank.
In my opinion, most athletes feel this way, but they will never admit.
