You have to hit a low point in order to look up. Last Thursday, in an overwhelming atmosphere of emotions Freud would have difficulty untangling, we turned on the remaining team members. How unfair is that? They are struggling, like the rest of us, to put feelings aside and restructure the playing field.
Ironically, when our small forward left, we lost our center. Literally and metaphorically. Z, our gentle Lithuanian giant, followed LB Jimmy south for the winter. And we became spokes without a hub.
I like the angle but I still feel like the roster showed no compassion for what the fans were feeling. I know there's a disconnect between fans and players that millions of dollars can't quite bridge, but last Thursday was frustrating for that reason plus more.
