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.
Amongst this well known and respected, or hated, group are a few types that stand out and can be observed. Everyone knows someone who fits one these types and probably more than one. Many of us, including myself and my brother (who said as much while I was writing this) have been one at times.
