You know what, bite me. Seriously.
Your favorite team won a cup in the first year you were watching them and you have the gall to claim that Detroit winning their 5th cup in 13 years is going to be just as big of a deal to your team as it would be somewhere else?
It's a completely ridiculous concept.
Actually, the first year I started watching them (92) the wings got swept by Chicago in the Norris Division finals.
My second season watching them they lost to Toronto, 4-3, in the Western Conference quarterfinals.
My third season watching them they lost to San Jose, 4-3, in the Western Conference quarterfinals.
My fourth season watching them they got swept by the Devils in the Cup finals.
And the next season they lost to Colorado in the Conference finals.
Additionally, I've seen them lost to Colorado two other seasons in the playoffs. I've seen them lose in the first round LA, Anahiem and Edomonton.
So I've seen my team get beat a lot. What was painful about those losses is most of them were by teams they should have beat. So trust me when I say I understand pain about your team losing.
You said yourself we can't make each other see the others perspective, so why keep carrying on the conversation. All I can tell you is that if the Wings win the cup tomorrow, it will mean just as much as last years, if not more due to the adversity they went through to get it this year. I'm not numb to winning the cup, I don't give a shit if they would have won it 13 times in the last 13 years.
