What Happens When the Best of the Best Lose

Darrin ToneyContributor IJune 27, 2008

I would like to analyze what happens to us Pats fans when they lose. We all know we hear about it everywhere, school, work and at home. Why does everyone like to harass us?

 Because we are the best. For some reason that I cannot comprehend, people like to see the best teams lose. My question is why? The answer is that their team stinks so the best thing they have is watching the best lose.

Notice how all the harassment came from people who are fans of teams like the Miami Dolphins, Kansas City Chiefs, and New York Jets. But when you talked to people with other legitimate teams like the Indianapolis Colts, or San Diego Chargers fans. They just talked about why you lost not, jabbing you every time you saw each other. 

The best answer in my opinion to the harassers is "how did your team do this year?" That normally shuts them up, because their team can't match up to yours.
