The down side

When you follow as many sports teams as I do, once every few years comes a week where everything goes wrong. Your football team loses two games it should win, with a young star wrecking his knee. Your national soccer team is humiliated on the biggest stage, and the other team you adore is victimized by one of the worst refereeing displays in living memory. Your basketball team loses a heartbreaking game 7 in the NBA finals. Your baseball team goes into its annual, deep, interleague death spiral.

Tonight, the Brooklyn Cyclones hold their home opener, against the Staten Island Yankees. They could make up for everything, in one go. Or it could get that much worse...

Guess where my money is.
