How do the Clippers Affect You ?

I was thinking after tonight's loss, how does being a Clipper fan affect your psychological well-being. I remember Ralph saying how us fans fans get too up on a win and too down on a loss. I think he has the proper perspective from following the team for so many years.

I know that I feel much better when the team is playing well and winning. However when they are losing, the negative feelings sometimes linger and I look forward to the next game to get the bad taste out of my mouth.

As fans, we have no control over the outcomes of the games, yet we sometimes sweat out each game as if our lives depended on it. We curse out players we don't feel are performing up to our standards, we second guess the coach, blame the trainers, the refs, etc. etc. 

I sometimes go directly to Clips Nation after a tough loss as some kind of support group to deal with the disappointment.

There I can assign blame to the guilty parties, wonder why Kaman is out 40 something games with a bone bruise, figure out who we should trade for, and dissect VDN's in game strategies. 

I know we have had many posts in the past as to why we are Clipper fans, but I love being fan of this team as painful as it may be sometimes and will look forward to the rest of this season as well as the next. (whenever it may be)
