Because I couldn't find anything more fun to do, like getting my wisdom teeth removed without anesthesia or having a biker gang pummel me into unconsciousness with chains, I am slated to call in to John Frary's radio show on ESPN Radio 1420 out of St. Augustine during the 7:11 commercial break tonight.
Don't get me wrong; John is a great guy, and I ordinarily enjoy speaking with him, but, man, this was a loss so tough to take that it makes me almost physically ill to think about it, much less talk about it, and it causes me to question, however slightly, some fundamental assumptions underlying my basic philosophy of life. Do nice guys truly finish last? Will good ultimately triumph over evil? Is success attainable by someone attempting to behave decently, or does victory require a heartless mercenary attitude that casts morality to the wind?
Anyway, I'm scheduled to go on the radio tonight and talk about last Saturday's game. Be sure to tune in locally or visit the station's website and click "Listen Live" to see if I am able to discuss this matter rationally or whether I will wind up talking to John as though he were a volunteer at the local crisis hotline. It could go either way, really, and hearing me experience a complete mental and emotional breakdown on live radio might be good for a few laughs.
