10 Things All Losing Sports Fans Know to Be True

As football season comes towards an end, NFL and college football fans everywhere are either gearing up for playoffs or silently putting away their jerseys in defeat and thinking “maybe next year.” If you’re a fan of a losing sports team, chances are you’ve experienced these 10 struggles.

1. Every Sunday or Saturday when you turn on the game, you usually know how it’s gunna go but you put yourself through an hour of agony as you try to hold faith.

2. Your team is most likely plagued with injuries, which means your favorite player is probably on the bench.

3. You thought all the “hard work in the off season” was “really going to pay off this year,” according to the coaches and Bleacher Report.

4. When your team loses, everyone who’s a fan of a winning team has the right to make fun of you and harass you until you can pull out a win, and they will take full advantage of that opportunity.

5. Your team is always the highlight of ESPN after game day with the caption most likely “why the (INSERT SPORTS TEAM) won’t be making it to playoffs this year, or something like “(SPORT’S TEAM)’S future in question.”

6. You consistently find yourself saying “We’ll get the next game” or “ maybe next season.”

7. Halfway through the season you saw a glimmer of hope that maybe the team would turn things around.

8. You feel somewhat embarrassed wearing your teams’ apparel around campus with a losing record, but you do it anyways because you’re a loyal fan.

9. You’ve never felt greater pride when the team wins, and never felt such a sense of embarrassment when they lose.

10. When they lose to the one team that was supposed to be a guaranteed win, you know to just cut yourself off of all social media for at least a few hours.  

But no matter how bad your team’s record may be, just remember there’s always next year, and win or lose, you'll probably still booze.

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
