My Braves are playing well of late.
They are a fun team to watch

I was a Braves fan back in the WTBS days when they were consistently awful.  It was enjoyable in a way, it was "baseball", if they won it was fun (and rare) and if they lost, well, so what?  I liked the players.  All that was ruined in 1990.

Yeah I had a bunch of friends growing up in the 90s who became Braves fans, because the Tigers sucked for the entire decade, and the Braves were always on TV, and were awesome.

It's liberating to root for an awful team.

Eh, awful might be pushing it, depending on the situation.  Last year and this year with the Tigers have been rough, because they are in the tear down process.  Next year, they'll still be bad, but you'll start seeing some guys who will hopefully be part of this team being solid again in maybe 2022?  So they will at least be worth watching.

The Braves were awful year after year with no real hopes of redemption, until it happened, suddenly and unexpectedly, or at least I never saw it coming.

We had Bobby Cox 2 years ago in the Fantasy Camp and he told us next year would be rough but after that watch out, and the Braves won the division last year and look good again.

Kind of like my following the Tribe from 1959 - 93 they finished 3rd twice I believe.But they were fun to following,alaways interesting characters.All that was ruined in 1994 when Jacobs field opened.Nothing like the old Municipal Stadium with 80,000 + seats.We use to joke we had our own vendors

I've noodled before about being say a Kansas football fan.  You attend the home games and tailgate and cheer your team, and after the game, you tailgate some more.  Of the team makes a bowl game at 6-6, it's cause for more celebration.

It's the Ole Miss philosophy really.  Those Rebels really know how to party, win or lose.

For Alabama fans, anything but a crushing 77-0 win is a loss.

I think 2013-15 ruined MSU football for me.  I was happy to be consistently pretty good, never an embarrassment, generally a bowl team, happy to beat rivals, and occasionally play for a Big Ten title.

Now, they sort of shifted my expectations in a way that they can only disappoint.

Try it when your school goes 60-3 when you're a student.

It's easy being a Brewers fan.

Article summary: Lenny Dykstra and his amateur wrestling friend, who goes by the name Sprinkles the Clown, spent 9 hours dumpster diving outside a Jersey Mikes, looking for his $80,000 dentures, made with real bone marrow.

I thought Dykstra considered that ashtray money, bro.
