Joe Posnanski had an interesting nugget in a post on, of all things, the Oakland Raiders, that I thought applied to our collective situation.

There are stages to being a fan of bad teams: Anger first, then numbness, then irrational hope, then renewed anger, then realization, then finally this resting place of compromise where fans will either pull back their support or mock their own teams or call for change or simply decide to enjoy the small triumphs.

What do you think? Does he summarize it correctly and, if so, which stage are you in?
