Before the playoffs start, I just wanted to say that no matter what happens, I, for one, am very proud of what our Riders have already achieved this year.
That is not to say I don't have faith. Au contraire. I know that the Riders can win it all, I hope they do but I expect nothing. I'll be dissappointed if we do lose, and moreso if we lose bad, but that wouldn't change the fact that the Riders' performance this year is at that "next level" that we all demanded. Whether they are at the "highest level", only three weeks will tell.
(By the way, if anyone is going to mention Tillman, Austin, Shivers or Barrett, don't bother posting - don't want to give fuel to another "us and them" debate.)
