Trying to stay positive
Yeah, I know. It’s not easy during times like this. Losing seven out of eight is never easy, but it’s going to happen to almost every team at some point during the year. That’s not to say people around here aren’t bummed right now and searching for solutions, but at least they’re trying to keep it humorous.
Take for instance, my return to the office this morning. Taped to my office door was a sign that said, "We come back, Josh." I was told I already had all the Ls, so there were none left for the sign.
Not to be outdone, I also received a letter from "Paul Tagliabue" that read:
Have you ever considered the National Football League? One win per week and you’ll have a Super Bowl ring!!
OK, so these made me chuckle and the culprit, Mark Langill, certainly knows how to keep things light. At the end of the day, our office is just like any of yours. What makes it special are the people we work with, both upstairs and downstairs.
So keep your heads up. I refuse to say "it’s early" but it’s definitely not too late for a turnaround. There’s still two months left and as bad as the trip went, if you go 1-7 and only lose one game in the standings, there’s reason to remain positive.
