The horrific text message update I received this afternoon (oh, how I wish I could un-see it!) confirmed my theory of a Bills curse. I am 181% positive it exists. Why do the football gods have it out for the Bills? I don’t know if I can go on…seriously.
Freddy Jackson is out for AT LEAST three weeks with a knee injury. I can’t handle it. I think I might be numb. Side note: I heard Jets fans at the game expressing glee over his possible injury when he went down on the sideline during the game. It took all my self control not to turn around and wail on them. I just kept reminding myself that my precious beer would most likely be spilled, and then where would I be?
Bad news part deux: David Nelson is out for the year with a torn ACL. Again, I just ask: why?
Both injuries are significant and enormous blows to the team and my sanity. Jackson being hurt in this capacity is basically worst case scenario … a nightmare. This can’t be real life.
When I can compose myself, I’ll return with observations from MetLife Stadium. Believe me, you won’t want to miss it.
