With vacation time looming, St. Louis Rams coach Steve Spagnuolo will be trying to dial things back. But he acknowledged that he finds that difficult to do.

"I spend the first 80 percent of (vacation) trying to detox, or whatever the word is," Spagnuolo said. "Then I enjoy the last three days of vacation."

He and wife Maria are planning to visit family on the East Coast. A couple of more trips are planned, but Spagnuolo doesn't know the itinerary yet. "Maria's got it lined up somewhere," he said.

I appreciate this because it's also how I'll experience the Rams' next winning season. There'll be a long period where I wonder if it's really happening, and whether I can allow myself to love—we can say the beach—again, and then when they're finally 9-6, and my flight back to Lambert from this metaphorical vacation destination is looming, I'll spend that last day secure in the knowledge that I have successfully enjoyed myself.
