I never really considered myself to be a glutton for punishment, at least until recently. Then upon having a conversation with a friend I realize that I truly am a glutton for punishment. Being from Cincinnati, and also being a hometown sports fan really does make you crazy each and every year. Some years crazier than normal, a normal year is 1 team dashing your hopes, then other years a second team enters the fray of upsetting the hometown fans. In true fan fashion we continue to slog through, hoping against hope that this time it will be different.
