Scared Of Success......

That's how I define my team, the Miami Dolphins. With a chance to go over .500 for the first time in forever, they found a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory with a one point loss to the previous winless Houston Texans. They had a chance of becoming just one game out of first place in the AFC East.

Like I believe, winners find a way to win, losers find a way to lose. They have to find a way to break that culture down there on South Beach.

My fantasy team is stinking it up too. We are 2-4 and in 10th place. We are coming off a win though, I have been decimated by injuries this year. I am going to find a way to get in to the playoffs, and with a good streak I could be in the top tier of the division. I'm only three games out of the top spot.

The Dolphins must be rubbing off on me too, hopefully we both get back on the wagon here soon.

Oww you make losing sound so poetic! Your precious Dolphins jammed me up 2 weeks in a row. Week 5 against Dolphins (L), week 6 for the Dolphins (L). They're proving to be the most unpredictable team in the league for me.

You have my sympathies. Apparently my beloved Michigan Wolverines are suffering from that same "Piss Poor Performance" Syndrome.

I feel your pain!!!! The redskins are doing the same thing. After winning against both Dallas and the Eagles, we lost to the 0-4 Rams. I guess it's true when they say any given Sunday. I'm just happy that almost every team (except Eagles) in the NFC East loss this past weekend. We have Cleveland next, hopefully they won't beat us like they did the Giants.

I wanted to comment on your Furman trip but I have been feeling so horrible and so much pain in my right hand and arm the last 2 days from my dystonia condition that I could not even type. Thank God I woke up today feeling much better and my hand and arm are feeling descent enough to type again. Believe me, even though I could not type comments, I have been reading your intelligent and wonderful blogs the last few days. While I was laying in bed feeling horrible, I was thinking to myself how I can not live without your blogs anymore. I can not imagine turning the computer on and not reading your blog, David. You have touched my life, so much,like I have said before, that I can not even put into words how much you and this blog have meant to my life. It really keeps me going at times I need it the most. You have touched so many lives from young children to senior citizens and I know this will continue. God gave you so many talents and so many ways to relate to so many different types of people and age groups. I can see why those young people at the Furman event were at the edge of their seat on your every word about your amazing life story. I would have been on the edge of my seat, too. I am certainly on the edge of my seat and get so excited to read what intelligent comments you will write next. Your Miami Dolphins and fantasty football team may not be winners, but David Oliver is the ultimate winner on the track and in life. You are my winner. You do everything the right way in life and that makes you my winner. I am very fortunate that so many of my sports teams have won championships for me to enjoy and many of them are doing so well right now. This all being said, because of my dystonia condition, I really love to watch sports these days as an escape for me from all that I go through from my dystonia condition. So, win or lose, I enjoy sports and entertainment more than the average person. Whether my sports teams win or lose, I am going to enjoy watching them. I wish more people could see things my way when it comes to sports, but I really think they would have to be in my shoes to understand why I feel this way. As a matter of fact, I do not go out much because of my dystonia condition, and it is usually sporting events or a music concert that I go to when I do go out. Music is my #1 love. Thanks again ,David, for taking the time for this blog and sharing your life with us all. Every picture is awesome, and I really loved and enjoyed all the new pictures. You are amazing with all the pictures, too, from your family and friends to all of your engagements in your suits to shorts and spandex in all your track practices and track racing events of which you are a winner, of course. You are King David, and now I have to say you are also Mr. Wonderful. Thank you for being a Godsend to my life! God loves you and so do I!!!!

Man the Dolphins are terrible! Team loyalty is no joke. Do you ever get to talk trash?

So I'm new to your blog, and I was liking everything that I read......and then this......the Miami Dolphins?! Wow!!! This is obviously not going to work out. You guys have been our (Buffalo Bills) division rival for as long as I can remember. Even after this devasting news, I'm still a fan of yours......for now......until playoffs......if you guys even make it!!! LMAO Enjoy Howard Homecoming =)

I think u have a point there. My fave team (The Saints) are very similar in that regard. "Scared of Success" or is it too much partying? Both teams are in cities renowned for the nightlife. Maybe they need stricter socail policies :)
