Stop feeling sorry for the Columbus Blue Jackets. Stop expressing sympathy.
This isn't toddler soccer. This isn't tee-ball. This is professional sports. People are paid to win. There are no participation ribbons.
Bring your A-games. Thrash my team on the ice. Trash talk to your heart's extents.
That which will not kill us will make us stronger.
Someday, hopefully soon, the Blue Jackets will get their act together and start winning. Perhaps your not taking pity on Columbus will expedite this messy process.
And when my team starts beating yours...well, you'll understand my exuberance.
- The Dark Blue Jacket
