I haven't enjoyed this season as much as I thought I would. I really thought they would dominate. It just makes me appreciate the championship they won even more. They could still repeat, but I've decided to just try to enjoy it and not get frustrated. Its easier said than done.

5 blowouts with great QB play would have been great, but it didn't happen. This team has played several games now where they were tested. They have overcome halftime deficits, about 500 turnovers, bad penalties, questionable playcalling, injuries, constant criticism from everyone, idiotic fans tweeting players--yet the Bucks are still 5-0. They are starting to turn the corner. Trust Urban.

I heard "regulator" on the radio today on a new "classic rap" station. Yes, I listen to classic rap. Give me Dre, snoop and Tupac over the wacka flocka dude any day.

I am sorry to hear this happen. No one deserves to be treated like that after such loyalty and hard work. I have been laid off twice but it was after 4 and 5 years.I was so bitter. I still am. I can't imagine putting in the time you put in and have that happen. It isn't fair, but you will be okay. There is always a need for quality and loyal employees. You will find something. There has been some great advice on here and some great supportive comments. Whatever you decide to do will be fine. Hug your family. They will help you through this.

I think a post loss speech helps the team cope with the emotions of an immediate emotional sting and perhaps prepares the players for another day, so I think they are ok. Participation trophies, I'm split on them. I think they are OK for little kids, but I think they do more harm than good past age 6 or 7.

If you think you were laid off because of ageism, check your state’s anti-discrimination laws. Workers over 40 are protected by the Age Discrimination in Employment Act (ADEA), which is a federal law, but states also have some laws that should protect you.  Unfortunately, ageism is alive and well. I’ve seen it happen at places I’ve worked.  I’m sorry to hear about your situation. Hang in there. Things will get better.
