    OK, here's my situation. I get really keyed up watching the Buffs on TV. To the point where I'm not allowed to watch the games at home anymore. We have a 5-year old daughter, who doesn't need to hear my profane rantings. Problem is, we just got HD put in and I really want to see this game on the beautifulness of a LCD HD set.

    Any recommendations as to how to keep your temper and emotions under control while watching the Buffs on TV would be greatly appreciated.

    TIVO it and hit fast forward through the fumbles, INT's and Field Goal attempts and you should be OK ... at least that is what I do.

    Send the daughter to a friends house? If that's not an option, earmuffs.

    i take a drink every time something bad happens rather than screaming OH **** YOU HAVE TO BE ****ING KIDDING ME!! THAT IS THE WORST ****ING THING I HAVE EVER SEEN IN MY ENTIRE LIFE. WHAT A ****ING BULL**** *********** PLAY!!!

    instead, just take a sip of your drink and swallow the rage with it. :thumbsup:

    yes, that is a consequence of a really bad game. ... better than my kid going to school and screaming "DAMN THOSE ****ING UNBELIEVABLE WHOREMONGERING MOTHER****ING ASSHOLE BASTARDS!" in front of a nun.

    I use the term "Mother F**king C*cksuckers" a lot.

    Miss a tackle? Oh, then it's "WHAT THE F*CK IS WRONG WITH YOU?!?!" "Didn't you learn to tackle in third F*CKING GRADE?!?" "JEEESUS F*cking Christ on a pogo stick, you stink on ice!"

    It's funny now, here, but it's really quite embarrasing, and I wish I didn't get so worked up.

    I was cured of spouting off in front of my kids when we were playing a game of Uno and my 4 year old took a card from the pile only to exclaim "I'm screwed", followed immediately by a blood chilling glare from my better half. Since then I have reformed my "cursing that would make a sailor blush ways"...at least in front of my kids.

    I never swear in front of her under normal conditions. But when the Buffs are on TV, that's not a normal condition. It's like I have Tourettes or something. The words just fly out of my mouth in a subconscious stream of profanity.

    Rino has the right idea.

    Give Mrs. Sackman $100 and tell her to take the little girl to a fun lunch and a movie or something.

    Of course, you should return the favor and take Ms. Sackman out some time when Mrs. Sackman has something to do.

    No. I do get keyed up, but I don't get that bad because there's 50,000 other people who are right there with me. I feel like the whole situation is out of my control when I watch on TV. Which, is true, of course. But when I'm at the game, I know my voice is being joined by several others, which makes it easier to handle.

    Since you can afford a new TV, maybe invest in a "Get Smart" cone of silence. You can see the game, curse to your heart's content and nobody is the wiser.:smile2:

    It's not a bad idea, but it won't work. She doesn't want to be "kicked" out of the house just so I can act like a stupid juvenile.

    Well, it's funny because I already asked if she had anything planned for Saturday that would take her out of the house. She said "no". I don't blame her one bit. I'm an asshole when I watch the Buffs on TV. What I want is a way to watch the games without turning into an asshole.

    It's liable to be a lot worse against KU, too. That little sh!t they have at QB is probably going to break contain on a 3rd and 11 and scramble for 15 yards and my head will explode.

    I've already been told I'm not welcome at ITB's house anymore. :lol:

    I may have to go to a bar, but I hate that.

    As Homer Simpson once said: "Hold your rage inside like a tight ball unitl one day it explodes."
    Other than that, I have no suggestions.

    Yeah, I do that, too. Problem is that sometimes I break stuff. Like remotes. I've also put a dent or two in the wall. I always patch it up, but I feel like a complete idot afterwards.

    If there was something tangible, yet cheap, that could be broken with no consequences, that might do the trick.

    Novocaine wouldn't solve anything. I'd still yell, but I'd be incoherent and slobbering while yelling.
