||I seem to be some kind of source of bad luck regarding professional sports teams. As early as I remember I was an Atlanta Braves fan back when I lived in Georgia. For 7 long years I suffered through game after televised game of utter futility, cheering for the likes of Zane Smith and Dale Murphy. The year I finally move away to Kentucky, the Braves suddenly become good, and they become my least favorite team.
The same scenario was nearly repeated in St. Louis, where I suffered through 3 years of what is quite possibly the worst football ever played in a dome, including the agony of watching Tony Banks break down week after week. I did get one glorious year of Superbowl winning in before I moved to Dallas, but all that managed to do was whet my appetite for quality play, right before I moved to the city with the newly crowned "worst team in football", with a quarterback situation that almost makes me think Banks would be an improvement. And every weekend for the rest of the season, every Cowboys game will be televised, and because of ridiculously unfair blackout rules, I won't be able to see the actual professional quality football that is played in cities around the country. I bet I move to San Diego in a couple of years, right after Flutie retires and LaDanian Tomlinson gets traded to Dallas, who will probably go from last place to Superbowl.
Add to this all the embarrasing fact that I'm a lifeflong Detroit sports supporter (at least I have the Redwings), I almost derive more pain than pleasure watching sports on TV. Which might explain why I generally seem to be rooting against my favorite teams.
By the way I know sports mean nothing to you people and this comment probably makes no sense to you, but I don't care. Deal with it.
