I am feeling very BLUE this morning

My Monday morning begins with sheer euphoria over my New York Giants fantastic win over those hated Dallas Cowboys last night. It was the very first playoff game between these two teams believe it or not. This is one of the greatest rivalries in sports, so this win is completely satisfying. But now I have a very important personal decision to make and I need the help of my fellow readers. There are a couple of rabid Cowboys fans in my office that I have engaged in verbal battles with over this past season. I am debating on taking the high road and just smiling when I see them, OR running up to them yelling 'Yeah baby!! Giants win!! Cowboys suck! Tony Romo's gotta a big ol' butt, oh yeah! Whoop, whoop, whoop!' What should I do my friends? I am learning towards the former with quite, dignity and grace.

I watched the game in Hoboken with some friends including fellow blogger Uber. After the game Uber and I hailed a cab in the pouring rain. As we get in the taxi feeling high on football, ironically the first song we hear on the driver's radio is 'It's Raining Men' by the Weather Girls! Now it is said that music is associated with good memories. So unfortunately, this Giants victory will be associated with this song! Ugh, the horror!! I am unable to block the song out of my head now. Oh well, to make lemons with lemonade I turned to Uber and jokingly said 'Whenever I think about this day again my friend, I will remember this moment we shared together in this cab'. Uber just shook his head and ignored me.

Thanks Reggie. Maybe at the very least I will tape the newspaper covers all over their desks!

Don't gloat... It's never good to be a gloater. It's more satisfying to have to have them bring it up to you. If they dare... Enjoy it, But enjoy it now. 'Cause I have a feeling you will be sad next Monday. :-(

The lower the better...I loathe the Cowboys. Cheers!!

I think walking around with an appropriate smirk on your face is a nice balance between the low road and the high road.

I'll be cheering for your Giants next week only because Green Bay embarassed my Seahawks ...

I vote for a small amount of gloating. You should start by walking up to your co-workers singing "It's Raining Men" and doing a little victory dance. The rest should just flow naturally from there...

Hey girl, do I got newwwwwwwws for you! ROTFL!! Go Giants!!!

Normally I would say not to gloat. But, we're talking about the Cowboys fans here. We all know how bad Cowboys fans would be if they had won. Hell, they lost and their fans are STILL being obnoxious about it.

So, maybe just a little gloating is in order here.

High road --- sneak some team love into your attire and smile mischievously all day!

That song with that moment...curious, very curious.

"It's raining men" - Vin Dr. Freud is paging you.

Proudly wear your jersey to work on Friday (if you have casual Friday's)! I think a smirk is well deserved. It was a great game. But next one is you and doc against me and my packers! Let's see who wins that! ha.

Mountain Cat;

You use the word ironic too much.

We drove through Dallas on Sunday morning, and went right past all of those insane tailgaters surrounding Texas Stadium at 11:00 AM.

We also maintain that the Giants won because D.'s brother was wearing his lucky Eli jersey we gave him for Christmas. Eh, eh? ::nudge:: New Orleans QB!
