The Donkeys and Schadenfreude

Whenever it comes up in conversation, I always mention that my SECOND favorite team is whoever is playing the Broncos. That answer gets a variety of often hilarious responses. But in recent years, I thought that my hatred for the orange and blue had faded somewhat....since Elway's departure.

That was until yesterday....

I tuned into the last quarter of the Giants and Donks yesterday: I cannot describe the unmitigated and utterly joyful glee I felt when Eli threw the TD to Toomer. It was absolute and complete happiness. It actually felt better than our victory over Miami...okay, well, almost. Is that sick, or what?

To derive such fabulous joy and giddiness from the misery of others would seem a bit, 'unnatural'---wouldn't you say?

I suspect a Chief's win over SD this weekend, coupled with an Eagle victory over the Donks would top it--but it's hard to imagine at this point. I hope I get the opportunity to find out.

I jumped up and cheered just like if the Chiefs had won.

Then I realized that although the Broncos lost, they weren't "beaten." So my joy was instantly muted.

When I came upstairs, my wife asked: "Didn't the Chief's beat Miami on Friday? What are you whooping about?" I said, "Because Eli is a 'playmaker' and Plummer isn't.....heh. The Donks just got beat in the last seconds." She just shook her head.

I came home early from the bar yesterday and found my entire in-law family watching the Broncos on DTV. They are all broncos fans.

I quietly slinked down to my office in the basement, turned on the TV, and watched the choke job ensue. To resist temptation, I didn't come back upstairs until they had all left.

In my Rainmancentric world, the Broncos are only working toward one goal: to stand between me and happiness. They exist for no other reason than to be a villain. Therefore, it's only natural to be thrilled when they lose.

To add to my joy, I get all of the NY papers and get to revel in the Donk's misery. Plus I can still remember the Giants beating them in '98 when they came in 13-0. Nothing better than Shanaran spitting the bit.
