Last week was kind of a strange week for me. I was faced with the dilemma of what to do on a Saturday night. For the first time since April, there was no Carolina Railhawks game to attend or watch on the net. What was I to do? There are so many mixed emotions running through my head. I was sad because I didn’t know if some of the players from this year’s team will be back. Plus it also saddens me because that was the only time that I could see my oldest daughter. She is away at college but since where the Railhawks play is half way between her college and our house so she would drive down and meet us at the game. This was the time that we would be together as a whole family. Now sadly, that time has gone away.
I am also sadden because I realize that some of these players have appearance of being one thing but then they turn out to be big jerks. But then there are those who I have witnessed firsthand as being big softies but that is another blog post. So look for that on.
I am looking forward to next season with mixed emotions hoping some of the players come back, hoping that some of them will come down from their high horses and realize they are just like us and they get dressed just like us putting pants on one leg at a time. They are no better than the fans that cheer for them. And that they need to learn to appreciate those that put them where they are. Towards, the end of the season, there were some who would not even stop to sign autographs. “I mean who made them God?” But that is not to take away from those players who go the extra mile signing every autograph until the last fan leaves. So it is with mixed emotions I say farewell to the 2014 Carolina Railhawks.
