I remember not too long ago in this town that we had a playoff drought in basketball. But hey, when the Wizards make the playoffs 4 years in a row, all of the sudden our expectations are raised higher and higher. Now I hear people talking about breaking up the team, huh? It’s kinda funny because I’m like that with the Redskins – I really, really expect them to be Superbowl contenders. And now, I’m going to be that way with the Caps. Plus, with the 50 HDTVs here in Velocity Five, I’m 24/7 swimming in all sports, especially local.
I guess when it comes down to it, I’m your typical fan(atic). I always put these lofty expectations on our local teams that in the end I always end up getting hurt. *sniff* So, the obvious question is do I lower my expectations as to not get overly excited about any of our local teams and expect the worst / pray for the best sort of deal? Or do I keep expecting the best out of the teams?
I’ll take the later. So next year let me pencil in mmmm NFL Superbowl Champs, NBA 2nd round playoffs, Stanley Cup Trophy . . .
