Derby day. It's the worst yet the best. Hate the experience yet love it. The fear of losing is gut wrenching during the build up and through-out the game. Sometimes I want to bury myself away from the action and just dig out the final score at a later time, such is the immensity of the pressure felt having to experience it. Hate losing against them regardless of circumstance or performance. No other game comes close to reaching these emotional highs and nothing makes you feel as fucking shit as the lows.
I'm never ready for it. I hope our players are.
