Dear Chicagoland October 19, 2009

Dear Chicagoland Area,

I must say that after twenty four years, your sports teams have finally damaged my heart and blood pressure beyond repair.

I know that it is partially my own fault for cheering on teams that haven’t won the World Series in over a century or the Super Bowl in almost a quarter century. But you can’t blame me for being loyal! I was raised this way…

A fan since poddy training. (Damn, I was a cute kid. See what you did to me?)

I have stuck by your teams through thick and thin. Through heat waves and blizzards. Through the glory days and the shit storms. But this weekend? I actually flipped over to Spike TV and watched CSI because the tears were too much to handle.

Why do you do this to me?! How many blatant opportunities do you want to screw up in one game? How often do you need to be in the red zone until you realize they call it so for a reason? What does it take to make you see that being within ten yards of the goal line should mean you are going to be scoring a touchdown?

I love you dearly, Chicagoland. I really, truly do. But I don’t know how much more of this failure I can bear…

Regards,

Jeney

Amen.Though, I'm not a Bears fan. Still. I have plenty of Chicago-area friends who are. They mope and whine.And, well, being a Cubs fan…*shrugs helplessly*

There's always room on my Colts bandwagon.P.S. White Sox fans were rewarded not long ago. Just the cubs fans that are still waiting.

The game was pretty disappointing but I had a feeling they were going to lose before it even started. I love them with everything I have and will always be a fan but when they lose, they lose pathetically!I mean even after all of the mishaps, they had a chance to win it at the end. AWESOME. Then, let's get some ridiculous penalties to seal the fate!!UGH!
