My Big Scare!

Okay, yesterday I get this text message from my uncle and it reads, "Mister fumbled in the red zone?" I'm sitting here like what? Again, my blood pressure rises and I'm getting a little warmed up because I've told Mister that I don't like finding bad news about him on the internet, I would rather hear it from him. So, I got the text message maybe 20 minutes after Mister was off to the evening practice. Which meant it would be 3 or 4 more hours before I would hear from him to clear it up.

In the mean time, I'm looking online and texting my uncle trying to find this report somewhere. I never find it! So the reason I was in a panic is because Mister's rookie year, it was put out in the media that he had a fumbling problem. I personally have never seen him back to his college days; and there is no statistic to be found on him. But the media said that his fumbling problem is what kept him from making the 53 man roster.

Finally, Mister's text me because he was headed to Bourbon with his teammates to see the city. I respond back with "did you fumble yesterday in the red zone in the scrimmage?" He immediately writes back, "no". So of course I was relieved, but sometimes Mister acts like stuff is not a big deal and it really is....or should I say the media makes it a big deal. He reassured me that he didn't fumble.

I have a hard time with the media talking junk about him. Mister can handle it, but I don't like it! Between the media and the fans on the message boards, you really have to have thick skin. Mister's thing is all of this just comes with the territory, but my thing is I didn't sign up for them to be talking bad about him.  Just another reminder that this is "his dream and my reality"!
