Welcome to the wonderful world of existential nihilism.
I want no part of it.
I'll enjoy this team win or lose. I want to see wins, but there's no reason to complain about 2nd place out of 30.
Sure, sitting through 2006-07 wasn't fun, but the hope that one day we could win is basically the point of hockey. Unless you do win, it's one unfulfilled hope after another. Even if you win, the next year you probably won't, but in that sense, watching hockey in and of itself is a pointless endeavor if you really do believe winning is everything.
Hell, the tradition of sport is meaningless completely without the acknowledgement of winner and loser.
I had folks asking me during that season why I was still wearing (amongst my other shirts) Flyers polo shirts. I said, "I am a fan of the team, not of their record."
It's ridiculous that's the exception more than the norm. Never thought that *I* would be old-fashioned.
