This Is What It Is Like To Be a Cards Fan

I know morale has been down a bit among Redskins fans the last few years.  Two playoffs appearences in ten years (or something close to that) will do that to you.  It is harder for us to get excited than it once was, and easier for us to get down, but what we’ve gone through is nothing compared to what Cards fans have gone through their whole existence. I invited Cards fans to come here and play up their team and this is all they could muster:

“Flip a coin and its any ones game…. Wish I could talk smack but the truth is both teams are treading water.. Good Luck!”

“It’s funny, I remember reading a similar article about the Cards on a Pittsburgh blog a few weeks ago.  It read something like ‘there’s no way this team can beat us, we’re too physical and we’re to experienced….’ something like that.”

And even Mike Duggan at Raising Zona all but admitted his team would lose in his weekly preview:

“Prediction:I hope you realize this is a blog site for Arizona Cardinals fans, me being one of them. That being said, you’re never going to read a prediction from me in which I don’t pick us to win.”

I know they are 44-77-2 all-time against us, and 4-21 against Coach Gibbs, but could you imagine being the fan of a team where the best thing you can say going into a game is “we’ve got a coin flip’s chance,” “if you underestimate us, we’ve got a chance,” and “you know it would be logical to pick the other team, but I can’t pick against my boys.”

The next time you get a little down on the Skins, just remember, you could be a Cards fan.  No pride.  No sense of tradition. Putting out hope for an endless parade of new coaches and 1st round draft pick busts.

I’ll give ‘em two things though–1) Any Cards fan that has lived through their existence has to be called loyal to the end. 2) I really dig the whole rolling the field out in the sun thing they do at their stadium.

Do you think we could get Danny Boy to do that just for fun?
