Re: Is it sinking in for anyone else RIGHT NOW too?
The problem is, if you're in your mid-late 20s or younger, you have nothing but lows as a Reds fan.
1990 is getting pretty far in the rear-view -- I was 9 when that happened. Every memory I've had since then has been depressing: losing seasons, missed opportunities, playoff chokes.
You start to wonder "If not now, when?" There are no guarantees for a small market club carrying success from year to year. The margin for error is simply too slim.
