Concluding the Week of Pure Hate

Every year, this week is like no other. I honestly can feel almost nothing other than pure hate flowing through my veins like a supervirus. There’s no cutting this hate with baking soda, it’s pure and unadulterated. Not like with basketball, where the aura of inevitability (and the fact that the Holes are almost always national contenders even if we upset them) takes a little air out of the balloon. It also doesn’t matter where NC State falls on the scale of “pretty good” to “dumpster fire” – even when the Holes are relatively good in football…they always kinda suck. And we’ve seen some utter dogshit Wolfpack squads kick Hole arse up and down the field. Home or away, there’s always hope.

Not to say there’s ever that much joy involved. Because all my emotions are negative. I just hate those bastards so much. When I was a younger man, I frequently would talk loudly to myself in C-F, or scream at my television. Now at age 40, I mostly abstain from booze, and can keep my irritation in check, consistent with the social contract. Except for once a year. Probably the closest I ever came to a stroke was the year the Holes made up the “spitting” incident, and one DL (Coples?) hit Russell Wilson at least three strides out of bounds. Fortunately, the kids weren’t home (I wouldn’t have been able to modulate if they had been), though I scared the bejeezus out of my cats. Proving that Karma is indeed real, the Hole cheap shots woke up a slumbering Wolfpack, and we fought back for a satisfying win.

Though “satisfying” is relative. As with any win in this series, the prediominant emotion is relief. Crisis averted, as we don’t have to put up with their celebrations, their smug faces in the office Monday morning (thank f-ck I am NOT on Facebook, given that I don’t like people very much), just the knowledge that Wal Mart nation is happy. Even after the game, my main thoughts were of how mad I would be that no discipline would be forthcoming from the Swoffy cabal that runs our wretched league. I penned a screed on SFN, as a matter of fact. Look it up.

This year, it’s even worse than usual, even factoring out the extrapolated hate level (it accumulates over time, much like radiation exposure). After the cheating bastards ordered “rings” for their fake division title last year. At 5-and-f-cking 3, which even that was only possible thanks to a late 4th quarter Wolfpack bed shitting that ruined TOB’s perfect series record, and essentially ended his career as a head coach. After the continuing denials that they’ve done anything wrong. Just at the fact that these worthless wastes of carbon still exist, really.

Yesterday, I took one of my kids to the dentist. Saw a car with NC State decals, but also a “UNC Mom” sticker. I told my little one that she could go to UNC if she really wanted (my decree is any UNC system school other than EZU)…but she needed to know that I would never put a decal with that logo on my car or body. Don’t take it personally, just know in advance. Fortunately, she wants to get a scholarship and go to UCLA. Very specific, goal-oriented kid, that one. And thank God for that.

Dave Doeren, this week is your entire season. 1-7 in the league is totally fine. Just know that the “1” needs to come 30-31 hours from now. It really, really does.

    Anyone else out there feel litte joy in beating them….only relief in not losing to them? In other words, for me, beating them does not bring the equal but opposite emotional package that a loss does. I dont feel that way about any other opponent. I will say that crushing them soundly is fun to watch. But a victory, regardless of how it plays out, brings a “whew…just glad we didn’t lose to the arseholes”.

    I actually do feel joy at their defeat. Kind of like throwing a cockroach down the garbage disposal and flipping the switch.

  5. TheCOWDOG 11/01/2013 at 10:10 AM #

    Fu** no JohnGalt. It is all sheer unadulterated pride with a win over those ignorant, self aggrandizing, bottle sucking, baby blue…

    GD it..there just isn’t enough bandwidth to cover it all.

  6. TheCOWDOG 11/01/2013 at 10:18 AM #

    BTW. Thank you for the cover over that last story posted, Beej. This brings us right back on track.

    Saves me a trip to Mt. Olive, as well.

    GTHC. I mean that literally. Please, God, open up a hole and send Chapel Hill to Hell. Make it like the 11th circle, where all the arrogant, self-absorbed, assholes in the world go to be punished.

    Last year when TOB said “we don’t practice that” (referring to kicking the ball AWAY from their best back)
    I shouted out loud quoting “The Donald” “YOUR’E FIRED!!!” then I cursed our punter for being a dumb assed robot for actually not knowing what every other kicker in the world, including PeeWee ball, would have done. IDIOTS both of them!

  9. BJD95 11/01/2013 at 11:17 AM #

    We would have lost in OT anyway. We were a beaten team once they tied it up, could see it in our wolven eyes.

    I don’t know BJD, seems I remember Renner taking quite a few rough hits on their last drive. Would have liked the opportunity to see him in overtime. I think he was shell shocked.

    But memories get fuzzy too!

    Ebron shows more class than most Carolina fans do. At least with him you know what you’re getting. He’s not a smug, arrogant, sweater vest wearing dickhead like the majority of their alumni. He’s not a loudmouth, low-class, trailer living, trash talking redneck like the majority of their FANS are. He’s just a loudmouth narcissistic athlete who also happens to be a low IQ idiot.

    All the earlier posts this week left me with meh as my response. This one gets down to the real nitty gritty. Go Pack!

    F’ing forget about graphics, paint, logos and grass….
    that’s playing down on “their” level….

    “To Seem rather than to Be” => The Carolina Way.

    Let’s play the SOBs out in the parking lot and find out who the BETTER MEN really are.

    I realize my own musical tastes sometime verge upon the unacceptable, lol. To say the least. But still.

    Choke on it heels…

    I try not to believe in omens or signs, but I’ve experienced it all too often in my life to know that there’s something to these types of premonitions and “gut feelings”. Maybe not in a supernatural or mystical way, but there’s usually something in the atmosphere that surrounds these types of emotionally delicate situations; sometimes good and sometimes bad.

    When you look at the whole midfield logo issue (and not really the logo itself, but all the consternation and teeth-gnashing that it has brought about), and combine that with the fact that it literally rained on our parade today, well….

  17. Cosmo96 11/01/2013 at 6:50 PM #

    Plus the fact that our team’s kinda sucked lately.

    Here’s a link to my screen capture work of RW getting hit out of bounds. We used to have our own Flickr section here on SFN.

    We’ll be there cheering tomorrow

    Love to beat them. Don’t like to lose to them, but I’d never let any Hole think that a loss affected me whatsoever. That’s the trick. When State wins, pummel the Holefan. When State loses, don’t give them the satisfaction.

    +1 MrPlywood.
    i tried to post a good one,
    but you got it right the first time.

    godLost my cool last year in the away game. Gotta get some perspective. So the grandparents and cousins will go this year. I’ll spend money in Blowing Rock. Like they need it. I’ll wear a State football shirt. Eye contact will tell me the score.

    hippy shit. it’s a means to remain married and enjoy the kids. #State, God, Country

  22. vapackfan 11/02/2013 at 7:46 AM #

    I would rather spend a week in hell than a day in chapel hill!!!!!!

  23. BJD95 11/02/2013 at 9:02 AM #

    Blowing Rock (my favourite place East of the Mississippi) is never a bad idea.
