    How to stay sane when your team(s) suck

    I consider myself somewhat of an expert in the field of keeping your sanity when your team is awful. As a fan of the Kings, Bobcats, and 49ers I've had plenty of practice with it. Here are some tips to keep from losing hope in humanity:

    -Laughter. Make fun of how bad your team or a certain player on your team is.

    Example: Earlier this year I made my sig a short bus and said that's what Jason Thompson rode to the games (he's certifiably ********).

    -Lower expectations. So you thought your team was going to make the playoffs. Woops.
    Example: The Kings are awful...like really awful. Instead of my expectations being an improvement over last year, I will instead consider it a "win" if they get the ball over half court. I'm usually pleased.

    -Draft position.
    Unless you are a fan of the Bobcats like I am, high draft picks usually (key word is usually. Hi Adam Morrison) net good players. After yet another loss, proclaim that your team will get a higher draft pick. If by some miracle they do win, then just be happy they actually won. It's a win win.

    -Root for the players, not the team.
    Even bad teams have some good players. Just hope that some of your favorite players on your team have a good game.
    Example: The 49ers just gave the Carolina Panthers their first win of the season and I had to watch David Carr throw a football. Well...at least Vernon Davis had a TD and 120 yards receiving.

    -Hope that you have Hilton Armstrong on your team to provide you with entertainment.
    Example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ljq59M9xXjA

    -Rally against a really ****** player on your team with your fellow team posters.

    Example: Andres Nocioni with the Kings last year. AWFUL. We made it through by making fun of him as much as possible and dreaming of the joy we will get seeing him traded.

    I like to say "Damn........THE NET'S BLOW!!! The NET'S SUCK!!!" Then when they look good or even get a win I can be happy.

    I'm very experienced in this topic as well, and use some of the same tactics.

    Luckily, my team does have Hilton Armstrong. Watching him try to do some things, is usually entertainment in his own right. I think they should make a show that's just Hilton Armstrong running around a gym and shooting a basketball, it would most likely be more entertaining than any Wizards game.

    As for rooting for players: As a Wizards and Redskins fan, i have very few selections of "good young players" to root for. I'm a John Wall/Nick Young/Javale McGee fan for the Wiz, and a Brandon Banks/Orakpo/Torain fan for the Redskins.

    Watching Andray Blatche and Rex Grossman start games is nearly enough to make me sick, but anytime they fail, i get a good kick out of it, due to my hatred for them.

    Sadly as a Redskins fan, i can't do the whole draft pick thing, because we usually trade ours for the likes of Donovan McNabb, or some other awful bust of a veteran.

    And i like the Orioles and Nationals. Few things are redeeming in being a fan for these teams.

    The Giants very well may have saved your life. Let's hope Jim Harbaugh can save mine.

    210Don, nobody is going to give your 20ish butt any sympathy as a Spurs fan hahahaha.

    j/k homie

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    As a Knicks and Mets fan, I fully support the first and last points. Laughter is the best medicine, and nothing makes games watchable more than the ability to hate on Oliver Perez and Starbury/Curry.

    Agree on all points with Derek! As a Bengals fan, it really helps doing these things.
