I was pissed. I was really fucking pissed. Then I felt numb. This hurt. At the risk of losing all credibility, I have to say I only just started following the Red Bulls and MLS this season. I honestly could not give a fuck about it last year. My mom was like “Look Becky the Red Bulls are playing!” and I’d be like “Am I supposed to care?” Looking back I feel so fucking stupid. Because these past months? Been such an experience. I’ve gone to see the Red Bulls play at Red Bull Arena. It was only four games but it was wonderful. I felt such a connection. It’s different when it’s a team that represents your state and that you can go see play.
This? This hurt. Because I believe in this team. That’s not past tense because I still believe in them. Someone’s going to tell me to get used to it that teams fail and it’s just something supporters need to learn to accept. I don’t accept this because I know they can do better. I’ve seen them do better.
I don’t know where I was going with this. It probably sounds self-righteous but eh I needed to say it. I’m not ashamed of this team. This is just one more disappointment that has to be corrected. I don’t give a fuck that they haven’t won at Revs for ten years. Statistics are just things to psyche one out. I just need them to get their fucking shit together. I need them to stop this complacency bullshit. I need them to be the team I know they can be. The team they’ve been.
Sorry, long post is long. I just felt I needed to express my feeling a bit more precisely.
Oh hey welcome to the club! Hopefully if things go well so you won’t have to deal with some of our more fun playoff failures from the past (last game the Metrostars every played as the Metrostars still like stings and it was now 7 years ago) and can actually win a title.
