Same story every year... Do these story lines sound familiar?
***High hopes for the playoffs are gone relatively quickly. Even after the 0-4 start, we knew this was not a great team. They strung us along for a few months and now it's offically over.
***The team is devastated by an injury--- Blake, Livingston, Brand, Kaman, blah blah blah. Dont' worry, he'll be back next year, and NEXT year , we'll be good!
***We can get an elite free agent next year! blah blah blah. Nobody ever comes. we overpaid for cutino and thomas. kobe? nope. arenas? nope. ray allen? nope. nobody wants to come here.
***You should buy season seats because they're going to be good this year! blah blah blah. every year those reps sucker me in... not because they're such good salespeople, but because i want to believe in something. I end up feeling like a big idiot when i cant give away $200 tickets for a weekend game, let alone break even on them.
My level of interest is down 75% since about a month ago. i actually fast forward through some 1st and 2nd quarter minutes.... when about a month ago, i would listen to every comment made by Ralph & Mike as if it were the last ones they'd ever make.
