It’s not always easy being a fan. When teams make it so far and the promise of a Superbowl is right there within a teams grasp and then they lose, the feeling can be devastating. 49er’s and Raven’s fans recently felt this as both their teams fell one game short of a Superbowl appearance. One Raven’s fan in particular, felt the loss pretty deeply. The Ravens have been in the post season regularly the past four years but haven’t been able to work their way to the Superbowl. It’s gotta be hard to be one of their fans. This guy lets it all out after the loss to the Patriots.

You can see the guy watching the replay as Cundiff misses the field goal that’ll launch the game into overtime. He watches it in hopes of it being different. Maybe it’ll actually go in. But it doesn’t because he missed and he sulks off after once again feeling the pain of defeat. As Titan’s fans, we can certainly relate to that. Until we win the Superbowl, we will forever be haunted by Kevin Dyson falling a yard short of the end-zone.
It’s the cross we bear as fans. When the team wins, we can rejoice as if we were in the locker room with them. When the team loses, we are alone in our solemnness, forever critiquing the mistakes that lead to the loss; completely powerless.
