What, Me Worry?

You see that truck? That truck doesn't scare me.

No sweat. One more win for us and one more Astros loss. That's all it takes to put a square inch of real estate between us and that 90 mph truck bearing down on us.

Yeah, that's the ticket.

Even though we can probably look forward to a 3 and out in the NLDS, and even though this team is taking in water faster than the Titanic, I still love them and won't give up on them. Not like other fair weather fans, who I call "the losers". Good riddance.

Yeah, it's easy to be a fan when it's your team doing the steam-rolling, like 2004 and 2005. But real fans don't give up on their team, don't give up on rooting, don't quit until it's over. Yeah, guys, let's concede the division when we're still ahead.

These people would have surrendered to the Japanese after Hiroshima.

I intend to be there until the final out and the last gasp. Then I'll concede defeat. But until then, we press on. Battle to the death.

Some of these people just needed to toughen up a little. I've seen 4 year old girls tougher than some of these so-called fans.

Adversity doesn't build character, it reveals character.

Go Cardinals.


  1. Amen Scottius. While I've been down on my Tribe this year, I still paid attention and hoped for the best. Although the listening to the games isn't interesting, I will still "root, root, root for the home team".

    May the magic number hit ZERO quickly!!!

  2. Lucy!

    Yes, I did.


    "Being down" on the team, or even being mad at them, is much different than quitting on them. You are a true fan.

    Magic number is 4. I'll take that ZERO any time now!
