I'll probably be able to control it during the week, but it will be on my mind.

Then, come Saturday - forget it. There will be moments when I won't think I can wait until 4:30 (EST) for the kickoff.

The tension will mount. It will rise and fall with the Rams' ups and downs during the game. And, at day's end, there may be that feeling of relief/euphoria that comes after playoff wins.

By Monday morning, with all that has happened this year, the Rams could be one of 8 remaining teams with a shot at the big game.

This is what fans live for.

Who gives a #*%$ how we got here?
