Relaxation Can Be Good?

When I relax I’m not so relaxed

The one thing that has truly kept me chill throughout this quarantine is video games. From Fortnite to Madden then all the way back to NHL 19. During this time we all need to be able to relax. For me playing games with my friends is my getaway from all of this. Getting to talk to my friends and winning games with them it’s just kind of fun.

Me and Will Belle play Madden NFL 20 together, we usually play against each other, in this case we were playing against each other. I was the Giants and he was the Chiefs. I usually beat him or he rage quits so I was a bad team. Will was being annoying and made me use the Giants, but I was fine with it because they have Saquon Barkley who is one of the best running backs in the game and in the league. Will was the Chiefs because for one he is a massive bandwagon, (likes the teams that are good) and they have really fast wide receivers (Tyreek Hill, Mecole Hardman) and he runs these cheese plays that get you a touchdown every time, but you need a fast receiver for.

For some reason I always start with the ball so I got it and drove down the field with my 67 overall Daniel Jones and score touchdown. As I did this he almost rage quit. I kicked off to him and he literally returned it for a touchdown and as he did this I threw my controller and I broke, it snapped off. As I broke my controller I hear Will Belle in my ear “Hahaha you mad, or not.” I threw my controller again and it broke more. Will Belle knew what he was doing. Next drive I threw a deep pass, intercepted. Wow! Will is in my ear again. He ran one of his cheese plays and scored a touchdown, it was a buzzer beater. Again, he was laughing at me. Go through the game, now it’s the fourth quarter, 22-20 I am winning, 30 seconds left, he is kicking a field goal I iced the kicker, (makes the kick almost impossible.) Of course he makes it, I have 27 seconds left to get a field goal, driving down field, I’m in range and I throw a pick-6, I rage quit.

There dead and done. I was done. It was over, but I had fun, I guess you could say, but I was completely done for the night. “Hahahahhahahahahahahhahahah” and that is how it ended.

I love this. Maybe because it reminds me so much of what my own sons are doing--connecting with friends on video games because they can't go to the basketball court or the soccer field or to the park downtown. You do a great job here capturing the way you get through the day with a good friend.

I like how short, but detailed this is. You can easily imagine this situation as if you were there. Great job.
