Not A Fan

So the Canucks are out of the playoffs.  As for myself, I think it’s a nice chance for them to go golfing, but I have friends who are fans, and they’re bitterly disappointed.

I never know what to say. A sports fan whose team has lost is a creature I do not understand. Nor do I know what’s appropriate. It’s like they’re in a kind of mourning.  Their heroes have let them down. It’s a very personal thing.   I want to say, “I’m sorry about the Canucks,” in appropriately somber tones, because they are clearly grieving.

And yet! A bunch of millionaires slid around on some ice and failed to get a rubber disc into a net more times than the other team.

I apologize to the fans out there, but I just can’t care very much.
