« Another new Cub Fan emotion: playoff envy. | Main | It's the World Series! »

Welcome back Tim...we missed you.

As for the Bears (and that other team we obsess over), there are basically three frames of mind a fan can have about their favorite team:

1. We ought to win a championship.

2. We could win a championship.

3. We have no chance to win a championship.

There aren't many teams (in any sport) whose fans can honestly say they're in category #1. Most of us can be satisfied just being in the 2nd category.

But the ABSOLUTE WORST thing is to have once thought you were a #1 and then, in the same season, realize that you are a #3.

Our favorite teams are now 2 for 2 on that shattered expectations continuum.

We deserve better...
