Hockey season for me is essentially over. My team was knocked out of the playoffs last night. It’s times like these where I very much appreciate being raised as a Cubs fan because I know how to support and love my team, win OR lose. Unlike the win-or-we-don’t-watch fair-weather fans around here, I believe in sticking with my team through thick and thin. Here’s what you WON’T find me doing over the coming weeks:
- Threatening not to renew our season tickets for next year
- Ranting about who should be traded or kicked off the team
- Saying the team has no heart/will/skill/didn’t want it bad enough
- Calling my team pathetic/awful/disappointing
They had a rough series, they didn’t get the bounces and they got outplayed. At the end of the day, they’re still my team, I still think they are awesome, and I’m grateful for all the fun and entertainment (because let us all remember, this really is just entertainment) they gave me this year.
Rock on, Sharks! See you in September!!!
