Being let down by somebody hurts. It hurts because you invest time and effort into them and they go onto hurt you in some shape or form. Afterwards, you feel as if it all went to waste. The energy exerted into making that person happy could have been utilized somewhere else. What could possibly let you down and hurt more than being let by a person?
All sports fans will say the same thing, being let down by a person is nothing compared to being let down by your favorite sports team. Sports lovers would rather put lemon juice onto papercuts instead of watching their team lose. Look at the Super Bowl. Ask a Falcons fan how they feel and I know for sure that they are still depressed about their team letting their lead slip away in the second half. (I am personally a Falcons fan and not only I am depressed about the Falcon’s loss, but I have also boycotted all sport’s networks because I am tired of them bringing up the Super Bowl.)
The worst part is being part of a city that continuously lets you down. If you are a resident of Georgia, you understand the pain. Atlanta sports teams let their fans down year after year. The Falcons losing the Super Bowl the way that they did fit into the Atlanta mold. The sport teams of this state build great teams and then fail to deliver championships. The Falcons had a historic great offense that had a 28-3 lead in the Super Bowl. All Falcons fans, including myself, could taste Super Bowl glory, but like clockwork, the Falcons went on to let all slip away. Our hearts were crushed. The Braves and Hawks both have done the same. They build teams that appear like they can dominate their sport and then fail to achieve at the highest level. Between the two, they have only brought Atlanta one championship. Simply, it hurts to be an Atlanta sports fan.
Do not worry, Atlanta sports teams. What your fans lack in the ability to brag about championships, they make up for with their loyalty. Even with all the losses and let downs, your fans still be there to tomahawk chop at the new Suntrust Stadium and rise up at the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Atlanta’s love for its sports can never be broken, no matter how many times things go wrong. One thing is for sure, if you guys decide to change you ways and make it rain championships in Atlanta, the city will not mind one bit.
