After last night and a lot of time to reflect, I've realized that as fans, being a Michigan/Detroit fan has really sucked really the last 7-10 years. You're probably thinking at this point, at least we aren't Iowa or Northwestern fans and we should be happy with what we have, but I'm absolutely sick of it. I mean think about it. Just in the last 10 years, we have had to watch Michigan football alone lose to Ohio seven times in a row, Sparty four in a row, endure the Rich Rod era, Appy State, uniformz (kind of irrelevant but humorous), Ohio going undefeated playing a soft schedule, and finally Notre Dame in the national championship. It's an exhausting list that could go on even further. I could go on with how disappointing it has been watching the Lions, U of M basketball, and the Tigers (mainly before Leyland) within the last ten years, but I don't want to deter you guys even more.
So what I'm getting at is that last night's loss really put me over the edge... It MUST be time for something better. 2013 has to be a year of something better. And maybe it's just me overreacting about a loss to a crap Big Ten team in basketball, but as fans this has been just a tough stretch. Maybe I'm just spoiled, too, to be a fan of such a wonderful university, but as fans, we have to be due for something great. Whether that be the Men's Basketball team, or the Lions, or the Tigers, or most of all The Team, The Team, The Team, we are due for greatness. Hopefully my optimism, which is surprisingly high now, can speak for itself, and something fantastic can happen.
So I'm going to leave this to you now. Leave your thoughts, and give yourselves a pat on the back for staying true to Michigan and Detroit through this stretch but for most of all reading my entire tirade. Thanks for the read. Go Blue/Lions/Tigers.
Edit: Hopefully this is better for those whining about the spacing.
2nd Edit: Sorry for those who are misinterpreting this. I didn't make this to sound whiny... I made it to point out that things are going to begin to look up for us at some point soon. And I know a lot of people still have pent up feelings about last night so, maybe this wasn't the best time to post this.
Sorry guys, this obviously wasn't a great post and definitely not a great time to post it... Mods feel free to delete. Yikes.
