The Solution

Anyone who has played any sport beyond elementary school knows that to maximize performance, supportive and positive fans can help substantially.  Overly negative and pressuring fans tend to have the opposite effect.

And so my proposal is simple: fans need to accept that this city has, in fact, been cursed.  By facing that reality, we can then channel our energy collectively into being more positive and encouraging for all of our players and coaches in an effort to break the curse.

It worked in Boston.  It can work here as well.  So stop feeling sorry for yourselves.  Stop whining about all that’s gone wrong.  Stop living in the past.  Stop bracing for the worst when things look promising.

Breaking this horrible cycle of losing will not be easy.  But it has to start somewhere.

Start believing.
