It may be premature to say we'll win the cup in the second year of a rebuild, but I'm sure it's happened before. If it hasn't, there's a first time for everything.
My favorite fans are the "4 for 4" group. They religiously follow all the home teams of each major professional sport. Up until recently, those sports were football, baseball, basketball and hockey. I say until recently because since 2010, there's been a new game in town.
