Some Palliative thoughts and comforting cliches.

Thought 1) I wish I new how to put the "e" with the right accent in cliches.

Thought 2)  I believe what McNabb said last night about how important these times are for forging and defining character.  Through the rest of this season we will see who has heart and character on this team.  The hot fire of this now miserable season will purge away all pretense.  We will see "love of the game" and "will to win" in some, phoning it in in others.

Thought 3) This is true of fans too.  Our loyalty will be revealed.  The bandwagoners will wander off and only the die-hards will remain, polishing the secretly shiny honor of their fandom through the pain.  Few will see it and even fewer will recognize it, but like all of the truly profound joys in life, the rewards will inevitably come and when they do we will be able to sit back and enjoy the deep, lasting satisfaction of the long-suffering fan long after the firework happiness of the bandwagoners has subsided.

Like penitents we can enjoy our suffering, knowing it leads to greater joy (not to mention, smug self-satisfaction).

 

On a less overwrought metaphorical note.  I thought it might be fun to engage in some of the comforting platitudes with which we seek succor. 

 

Here's a start.  Please add your own:

It's always darkest before the dawn.

That which doesn't kill us makes us strong.

The journey of 1000 wins begins with a single draft pick.
