Sometimes being a sports fan is a difficult job. When your teams are winning, it’s easy. When they’re not, it’s hard to remain loyal. What is especially hard is when ALL of your teams are on a losing path. It would be one thing if just The New York Giants weren’t playing well, but add to that a dismal record for The New Jersey Devils and the losing season for The New York Mets and we have a houseful of disappointed fans.
We won’t give up on them. We will keep cheering them on, even when they bring home those losses. Instead, we will cheer on the amazing moments from the games – like last night’s thrilling catch by Odell Beckham Jr who truly caught one of the most amazing grabs I think I have ever seen.
Yet still, we still watch. We love the games, we love the players. I am known for getting mad, angry and shouting at the television when they lose but I have also cried when they have won. I was at a final game of The Stanley Cup Finals when the Devils pulled off the victory. When no one expected them to win. We still believed in them.
Standing by and watching these losses only makes it that much more worthwhile when they win!
