Anybody catch the Colts-Chargers game this past Sunday night? Anybody get mad? Anybody boo the team, maybe throw a beer or two or nine?
I couldnt help but sit there and laugh when I started to hear the boo's. Yes, of course I was mad at the outcome. But for the home crowd to be booing this team...I mean come on. I think we have taken this Colts team and their incredible seasons for granted, for far too long. It's strange for us not to have a perfect season right about now.
Saying that, I think this relates to our Pacers team and franchise. I mean how good were we? Really good. How many playoff appearances? A lot. I think we took them for granted. I know we did.
And look how many "fans" jumped off the wagon...the majority, I'd say. We went to packing the field-house to barely packing the lower-level. Grant it, it was hard to root for a team of thugs. It was hard to cheer the way we were being run. But we shouldn't have jumped off the way we did.
NOW, this team is really playing well. This team has the ability to do some pretty amazing things this year. They are FINALLY playing some D. They are working JOB's offense. (although JOB is a different post all together) The bench is stepping up. This team gets me aroused...like I literally get a chubby watching them play.
So here's the mission....Cheer as loud as you can. And help those "fans" that jumped off the wagon, get the hell back on it!!!!
GO Blue and Gold!
