America loves their success stories.
Stories about big underdogs achieving success, like Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos. Or teams coming back to win games from tremendous deficits in the final minute, also like Tebow and the Broncos.
But let's be honest: America also loves their failures.
For every heroic playoff performance, there is one just as tremendously abysmal, and as Dave Dameshek would put it, "it's time to shine the white hot light of shame on those who deserve it most."
So brace yourselves, there is nothing pretty about these playoff fails.
