Japan. Always wanted to visit.
(Note: This title deserves an asterisk. I don’t despise my father. But read on to understand.)
That’s a big headline. Let’s just dive in.
This year, the 2010-2011 sports season, has left me at a crossroads with my respective sports team. As many know, I live, breathe, and bleed the Browns, Indians, Blue Jackets, and Ohio State football. Of those 4 teams, only one managed a winning season for 2010-2011 (caveat: the Blue Jackets aren’t finished with their season yet but have taken their traditional midseason dive after a great beginning). 3 out of 4 teams. That’s a bad percentage. The Browns haven’t made the playoff since 2002 (their only appearance since their 1999 reincarnation), the Indians since 2007, and the Blue Jackets have exactly one playoff appearance (2008-2009). So recent success? Yes. Sustained success? A definite no.
