You know, sometimes I wonder what life as a Rider fan would be like if they lost in '89. The only thing this team is good for is getting your hopes up and then letting you down. Like that crazy uncle who dangles a five dollar bill over your head and then yanks it away before you grasp it. I image if that went on for 40 years we would have given up ages ago, but it has only been going on for 17 years so we keep trying.
Case in point, just when it looks like the season and all hope is lost, we beat BC for the third time. Then when people start saying "We should beat Edmonton" we don't. Is it coaching, players, the board, this province, the fans, fate, God, the Devil, the weather, the heat, the cold, whether or not I watch. Or is it this team has got such a tradition of losing (opposite to Edmonton's tradition of winning) they actually can't help but lose, despite the talent.
