I enjoy the regular season -- the individual wins and losses, individual performances -- but I can't fathom ever being satisfied with anything less than a championship.
My thing -- I was also one of those kids that had entire weekends ruined by losses in sports I played. I understand everyone enjoys life differently.
I think fans like this are why teams like Kentucky, New York, and Boston/ LA get labeled as the worst in sports.
And it's deserved.
