Ugh. That feeling when the niners, in contention for the division (or sometimes not), lets a game they easily could've wrapped up slip away. Sure sucks doesn't it. These last two weeks have been brutal, winning late in both of them, but just couldn't put the thing away. Makes me think of the absolute worst ones I've seen, so instead of starting a "OMG NINERS SUCK FIRE EVERYBODY" thread, I wanna hear which losses have personally pissed you off the most to the point where you threw your beer, kicked the dog, or managed to light your house on fire in a fit of rage. Might make the sting of these last two a little less unbearable.
Some of my worsts:
1) Week 7, 2001, 49ers at Chicago Bears. We're up 28-9 halfway through the third quarter and just rolling on the Bears who like the Niners were the surprise team of the year after several crappy years. This was a huge statement game to show the NFL the Niners were back, baby! I really don't know how, but everything just suddenly went the Bears way and they managed to force overtime. On the very first play in overtime, Garcia's sends a dart to Owens right down the middle, which would have been a huge gain, except for the fact that Owens decided it was a terrific time to grow a nice fat pair of butterfingers and bobbles the easy catch right to Mike Brown who takes it all the way into the end zone.
As I stumbled down the busy street the bar I was at was on very drunk and angry, yelling "F**K! F**K! F**K! F**K! F**K! F**K! F**K F************K!!!!!!!!" at the very top of my voice, I'm quite sure the people who saw me that day either thought I was completely insane or were niner fans as well, and just as pissed, because that game had me about as pissed off as Russell Crowe on one of his better days.
2) Week 3, 2009, 49ers at Vikings. This s**tshow of a game pitted the 2-0 Niners against the Brett Fahvruh led Vikings. I hate Brett Favruh. So much. All I wanted for Christmas that year was to watch the Niners faceplant him into the turf, repeatedly. And that's what they were doing, Shaun Hill puts us ahead late in the 4th, with no Frank Gore, and the Defense locking down on Mr. penis picture taking primadonna hillbilly who can throw the ball really far, but what happens?? With like 2 seconds left in the game he throws up the biggest prayer I've ever seen in my life and just it happens to go to where Mark Roman was, who was about as good at playing safety as Justin Blackmon is at passing his piss tests. That ball was in the air for what seemed like forever, and all I could think was "please God, don't let Brett Favruh screw us over again like he's the real life version of Lucy and the 49ers are Charlie Brown. Please God?"
Of course God was not a 49er fan that day because Mark Roman let some dude named Greg Lewis make a miracle catch right in the corner of the end zone like 2 miles from where Fahvruh threw it and I'm kicking planter boxes over and swearing very loudly because I was about as drunk and angry as Russell Crowe in a good mood. That one really sucked.
3) Week 2, 2011 season, Cowboys at 49ers. If there is anything I hate more than that redneck good 'ol douchbag Brett Fahvruh, it's the Cowboys and their meltdown mess of a QB named Tony Ho.. I mean.. Romo. I don't care if we have to go 0-14 the rest of the season, can we please not lose to the Cowboys, at home, in overtime, after being up 21-7, like please?? No, sorry, because that's what happened. And what makes that even so much better was they came back after we had taken Romo out of the game with two broken freaking ribs and could barely breathe. Oh, that's fine, he just comes back in and totally dominates, and then wins the game in OT on a 77 yarder to some dude WHO ONLY MADE THE TEAM BECAUSE HE WON SOME STUPID REALITY TV SHOW THAT IDIOT MICHAEL IRVIN COOKED UP.
Why. Just, WHY. Why must I endure this, God must hate the 49ers I concluded as I violently threw my Eggo waffles at the wall, over and over again, making sure all the syrup and butter on them knew exactly the full extent of my rage. My sister still makes fun of me for that, reminding me of the time the 49ers lost because of Michael Irvin's STUPID PET PROJECT.
There are many more games that have pissed me off but those I remember the most because of just how much I felt the way Russell Crowe does when he wakes in morning. It's funny, the horrible heartbreaking losses in the playoffs give me a much different feeling, less like Russell Crowe and more like Rush Limbaugh, you know, like a sad, empty inside loser who with no hope in life.
Let's hear which are your worst losses, and more importantly, how much of an ass you made of yourself.
P.S. Dear Mods, I apologize my parents allowed me to grow up to be such a potty-mouth.
