My brother and I have been Redskins fans for as long as I can remember.
Last season, for his 45th birthday, I flew my brother from Vancouver, British Columbia to Toronto, where we met at the airport and drove 12 hours to Landover for the Sunday night game again Indy.
The actual road trip was amazing … which is a good thing, because once we were in Maryland, we got to watch McNabb’s brand of “I could give a shit” football.
I thought that was the low point for me. Then this season came along. I live 45 minutes from Toronto, so of course I spent $500 on good tickets for the Buffalo game.
I have lived through 2-14 seasons, but I have never felt the absolute dark pit of despair as I did while I sat there with my uncle and listened to the Bills fans ridicule my Skins.
There was nothing I could say. No rebuttal.
I simply agreed: “we are the worst team in football”.
