on the front page. Did I miss the place to discuss it? If I did, point me in that direction.

I just wanted to comment that protecting yourself (i.e. not giving all your heart to a team), does not make you more of a true fan than not protecting yourself. I give my sports soul yearly to the white sox, the bears, and the fighting irish. Only to have it crushed every year. Sure, it's a harder fall to take than when you expect the worse. But I cannot go through life expecting the worse.

I wouldn't bet everything I had on each of my teams to win it all every year, i'm no homer. And those who know my sports soul would call me a realistic optimist, but I can't go half effort in my support in any year, and as a result my heartbreak is harder, but i wouldn't have it any other way.


Again, if i've missed the thread to discuss this article, splice this thread into it and point me in the right direction.
