Get over it

While driving down Youree toward Chick-fil-A today, I noticed a strange window sticker on an SUV. It said "It was a fumble."

My first thought was there aren't any Oakland Raiders fans in Louisiana are there? Then when I looked down and saw the Raider Nation license plate holder my next thought was get over it.

The now-infamous Tuck Rule Play was five years ago, FIVE YEARS AGO. Yes it probably cost the Raiders a Super Bowl berth, but let it go.

Oakland had a chance to win the NFL championship the next season and got obliterated by Tampa Bay in the Super Bowl.

Yes hanging on to bad memories is part of being a sports fan. Look at pre-2004 Red Sox Nation. They had Buckner, Dent, et al. Same goes for Cardinals fans and the Don Denkinger call or non-call.

At some point, let go of the past and live in the present.
