    Yea other than the Bills I don't think many teams can say they have it as bad as we do. I mean the Browns are just plain bad so you already can brace yourself for losing. They start with zero expectations. The Vikings will build you up with hope and excitement and then crush your heart and soul within seconds. I mean I'm only 28 and this has happened in my lifetime:

    1: Herschel Walker trade happened a few weeks after I was born
    2: 1998 NFC Championship
    3: 2000 NFC Championship
    4: 2003 last second loss to the Cardinals to knock us out of the playoffs (lost to every 4-12 team, started 6-0)
    5: 2009 NFC Championship
    6: 2015 Blair Walsh missed FG

    1998 was the first year I became a fan. It's like the universe allows these things to happen to torture us lol

    yeah, well I'm old enough to have been thru all 4 Super Bowl losses...and the close calls along the way there prior to 1998, so I guess I'm just a glutton for punishment
    gotta love 'referential' treatment
