I always try to be honest with myself. I can't remember lying to myself in 30+ years about anything. It just seems to make life work better for me.
However, this time I'm making an exception and I'm going to tell myself that the NFL is not into game rigging. I'm going to tell myself that that one sideline judge just can't walk a straight line when he was shaving 1/2 yard off every one of our plays. I'm going to lie to myself that pass interference calls weren't designed to take DT out of the game. I'm going to lie to myself that Champ really commited pass interference. I'm going to lie to myself that Kuper really did hold on of the best blocking plays I've seen all season.
The reason I'm going to lie to myself is that in this crappy, corrupt world, this game is about one of my last true enjoyments.
