I'm glad that I haven't been missing that much over the past few days. If this team's been successful at anything over the down years, it's developing and conditioning a fan base that seems almost too eager to throw in the towel when things aren't going well. And you know what? That's not a criticism, because pretty much out of the blue this season's starting to slip away, and I don't know what anyone can do about it. Some people might consider that to be too pessimistic, but me, I prefer to think of it as us bracing ourselves for what we're almost certain is coming. After all, familiarity breeds insight, and we've all seen this a million times before.
