I've been running this site since the 2006 season, which is the last time the St. Louis Rams were even remotely close to successful with an 8-8 record. Since then, well, I think you know how things have gone for the Rams. It's been a struggle. It's also taught me an awful lot about perseverance, dedication.
I can't tell you how many times over the years since then I've told people about what I do here only to get the response, "The Rams? Really?"
Yes, really. Jaws really hit floor when I tell them about how successful the site has been over the years.
Anyway, I've developed a thick skin, and more importantly have learned to laugh right along with all the jokes. What else can you do? Cry? No Thanks.
In the spirit of learning to laugh, I thought I would pass along a little joke I ran across on Twitter this morning. It involves the ACC, which is the butt of many jokes in the college football world. To wit:
Pitt pays $7.5M to join ACC in 2013.NFL plans to offer St. Louis Rams $7.5M to do the same.— Faux John Madden (@FauxJohnMadden) July 19, 2012
Not bad, huh? Be sure to follow me @TurfShowTimes.
