Born a fan without a choice...
I can't go back now. The carrot at the end of the stick is that we're always mediocre, then show glimmers of hope, maybe make the playoffs one year, then go back to being mediocre, then have signs of hope and so on. We're never terrible outright, but this season begs to differ.
I want Jerry Jones to just sell the team or step down as GM and hire a proper President of Football Operations and just let grown ups who know what they're doing run the franchise. Like how did he keep Jason Garret for 7 years and hires a new coach without a job hunt — just a grown man sleepover in the off season...

@dipset So funny how when we were born changes our views on this stuff. I still associate the Cowboys with the 90s teams and feel like that's who the Cowboys truly are. It's probably the same with the Avs. You might only just remember their last cup run and had to live through the post-Roy/Sakic/Forsberg years but for me, the Avalanche are a historically good team. I bet kids today even think the Red Wings are a sure thing lottery team and don't remember them basically not being able to lose for nearly 20 years. TL;DR: fuck I'm getting old.
But yeah, Jerry Jones is a tit.
@phbz And heeeeere come the England supporters
I barely remember the good ol Cowboys, just some of the Emmitt Smith years in the late-90s but I was pretty little then.
I definitely remember the good years with the Avalanche, but the mid-2000s was painful. I also remember all the good Lakers years but also the bad ones. But yeah, basically most of my life I can only recall terrible Dallas Cowboys and it hurts me to no end. I assume this pain is worse than childbirth.

@DIPSET Keep the faith. I see Dallas last won the Super Bowl in 1995? Well, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers won the Grey Cup last year for the first time since 1990. The drought was especially embarrassing because the CFL only has 9 teams.

I used to watch Danny McMannus throw like 20 picks followed by paying Casey Printers like $1M to get injured followed by Jason Maas to throw 500 picks and I just gave up.
I’ll never trade in the good ol days of bat shit games in Hamilton, but that’s another team that’s been terrible my entire life.
Oh and I forgot Timmy Chang who was like a Div 2 NCAA legend who threw like 1000 picks in the CFL then later got arrested for kidnapping.
RIP, Raps gotta tank.
I still don’t see Bucks going past Conference Finals in 2021.
NHL is back!
My Avalanche won the NHL 21 video game Stanley Cup simulation so that means we're the champs.
Got this exact "Reverse Retro" Alternative jersey for my birthday:
Also immediately got a small black mark on the white stitching if anybody has cleaning tips (I'm a fucking idiot).
Also very excited to watch the outdoor games this year. Again, my Avs are getting the special treatment by playing @ Lake Tahoe. It's pretty cool because they don't need a crowd so the locations are waaaaaaaay cooler than a baseball park.
This will make for amazing TV and obviously photography:
