You know what I love about being a sports fan? It’s an exercise in loyalty. I could root for whichever team is on top in a given year and ride the wave of their victories. It might be fun to feel like a winner all the time. But I’d rather stick it out with my favorite team in the trenches and on the mountain tops, through mind-numbingly painful first quarters and exhilarating fourth quarter comebacks, even when it all results in an overtime loss and a brand new ulcer.

Go Pack Go, for better or for worse.
