This Season is Different and That is Hard to Explain

Me-frustrating-cheer_medium The Syracuse basketball team is starting to make me look bad.

Every approaching game, I look at the opponent before turning to my girlfriend to say, "This could be a tough one. I am worried." Then Syracuse proceeds to run away with a double-digit victory.

The next game gets closer and I, of course, repeat my concerns. Why wouldn't I? Before this year, season-after-season, my worries would have been validated with several frustrating losses by now.

But this year I just sound like an idiot. I look at the upcoming game, I say my spiel and she says loudly, "You say that every game!" "Yeah, but this time is different!" And it turns out to be exactly the same situation as the last: Syracuse plays lights out and rolls to a victory.

This season is so different than anything I've ever experienced as a Syracuse fan. I can't change the way I've been cheering for two decades now, and I have no idea how to explain it to others.

I just cannot turn on a game expecting domination. I am continually bracing myself for the bottom to follow out at least once. And no matter what I say, no one seems to understand.

I'm not alone on this, right? Are you getting the same flack from your friends and loved ones as you attempt to cheer the same way you always do? (i.e. whining, yelling, only happy when the final buzzer sounds and Syracuse has miraculously won)
