Should have listened to the sage IATL. No one knows realistic pessimism like that guy.
Yep. When I let optimism grab me I usually end up getting kicked in the nuts when it concerns this club. I feel like Charlie Brown. Lucy's not going to pull the ball away this time...

But hey, you gotta believe sometimes.

Fall is like spring here, its that time of optimism, buzz, posters are singing. I even get caught up. haha

nah its all good, we're all suffering here sometimes.

Lets hope the Oil stay on a run. I want them to get in a habit of winning that they can carry into next season.
