You know what happens when you’re rooting for a creaky but, lovable football team that everyone has already counted out? You relish the victories. All of them. Every single one. You know the season could collapse at any time. You know you’re hanging onto hope by a thread. It’s a little liberating. Your expectations are low because you shouldn’t expect anything at all.
