I get asked asked why I call this an ALL CAPS PREVIEW, if the text is not in all caps. It's a fair question, but really the intent of this preview is to get you ALL CAPS through the weekend. And sometimes...the best way to get hyped is through calmness. Through measured words. Through carefully thought-out. intense. calmness.
So no. Not every preview will be in ALL CAPS. But I will give you your money back if you don't feel ALL CAPS by the end.
That's my intent.
So this week, the obvious question is "how can we get fired up about a game against Lamar?" Because honestly, we're likely going to win this game. By a lot. It's hard to get pumped up for a non-marquee opponent especially after the week that we had.
But here's the secret. It doesn't make a shit about who we play. Who we play is inconsequential. This is about our effort. This is about our execution. THIS IS ABOUT US MAKING THE MOST OUT OF EVERY M'FING OPPORTUNITY TO SHOW WHAT WE ARE ABOUT. IT'S ABOUT US. IT'S ABOUT NO ONE ELSE BUT US. EVERY MOMENT IS ABOUT US.
The song of the day is a good one. I mean damn it's a good one. Peep these lyrics and tell me that they dont get you FIRED THE F*CK UP FOR SOME FOOTBALL.
Under the lights where we stand tall
Nobody touches us at all
Showdown, shootout, spread fear within, without
We're gonna take what's ours to have
Spread the word throughout the land
They say the bad guys wear black
We're tagged and can't turn back
HOLY SHIT. REPLACE THE WORD BLACK WITH MAROON AND TELL ME THAT'S NOT WHAT WE'RE DOING RIGHT AT THIS MOMENT. TAKE WHAT IS OURS. DOESNT MATTER WHO THE F*CK WE'RE PLAYING. TAKE WHAT IS OURS AND DO WHAT WE DO. IT'S. ABOUT. US. AND IT'S ABOUT TO GO DOWN
You see us comin'
And you all together run for cover
RUN FOR COVER. RUN FOR F*CKING COVER. BECAUSE WE'RE COMING TO BURN DOWN YOUR F*CKING HOUSE.
Pissed off for Greatness. It's more than just a chip on our shoulder. It's more than just being doubted. It's more than just bringing up old tweets that doubted our abilities to perform this year. It's about being pissed off at anyone who stands in our way. It's about being pissed the f*ck off that someone would dare try and stop us. IT'S ABOUT BEING HITTING FOLKS IN THE GD MOUTH AT EVERY OPPORTUNITY. DOESN'T MATTER WHO IT IS. GREATNESS IS IN OUR REACH AND F*CK YOU WE'RE GONNA GET THERE. PISSED. OFF. FOR. GREATNESS. #POFG.
SO TO PARAPHRASE MY FRIEND LIL'SCRAPPY "SHAWTY SHAWTY ITS ON. GD-IT IT'S ON". IT'S GO TIME FOLKS. I DONT GIVE A F*CK IF IT'S LAMAR OR ANYONE ELSE. PISSED OFF FOR GREATNESS MEANS RUNNING OVER WHOEVER THE F*CK GETS IN OUR WAY. DOESNT MAKE SHIT WHO IT IS. THEY ABOUT TO GET HIT IN THE MOUTH.
84: MALCOME KENNEDY CARES NOT FOR YOUR EMOTIONS. HE'S GONNA GET 14 MORE CATCHES AND ACT LIKE IT'S NOTHING. LIKE A DAMN BAWWSS.
56: MIKE FCKIN MATTHEWS. RUNNING THE DAMN OFFENSE WITH AUTHORITY. DOESNT GET THE PROPS HE DESERVES BUT DAMN SON. YOU KILLIN IT OUT THERE.
23: TURN DOWN FOR WATTS.
21: BUS 21. HIT THE OPTION ON THE GOAL LINE WITH AUTHORITY.
10: AIGHT ALLEN. YOU GONNA GET THE KEYS AFTER THE FIRST DRIVE OF THE SECOND HALF.
7/7: 7 AND 7 QBS OF THE OFFENSE AND THE DEFENSE. KENNY TRILL AND JORDAN...WELL THERE'S NO WAY TO MAKE MASTROGIOVANNI SOUND COOL. THE MAESTRO? I GOT NOTHING.
Again. It doesnt make a shit who we're playing. Our preparation is the same. Our effort is the same. We are one track minded here. We're going to beat the piss out of them. That's all it comes down to. IT'S ABOUT US.
