Calm Down

This is a little inside.

After the Flames lost to the Kings last night, if you were anywhere near twittah you would have seen what amounted to a complete emotional meltdown by many Flame fans.

Many people, it turns out, have internalized the successful season the Flames are having. They view the Flames `as they are now`, as opposed to viewing them, as I think they should, from `where they started from`. And so the loss last night upset them.

This team, they harrumphed, is not very good. The team doesn't have real defence corp outside the Gio and Brodie, their key strokes thundered. The coach, who is a complete and utter moron apparently, is a complete and utter moron. The players are being used incorrectly, they trumpeted, as they offered their line combinations that would instantly fix everything if only people listened.

It was, in short, an epic clusterfuck of self-beclowning.

I have not come to point and laugh, I have come to offer advice and wisdom.


The Flames are having a great season. The players are all playing over their heads. This is a team that was constructed to be ok, and most assuredly in the minds of management, even have a chance to tank. 

It didn't happen. I don`t know why it didn't happen, but it didn't. The team has won games. I was going to write that the team has played well, but there is a mountain of evidence that shows that the team manages to win despite being outplayed. But the team is winning, and even despite a horrific - what was it, nine games? - losing steak, it still finds itself in a playoff position in February.

There is nothing to be angry about, sweat peas.

This season is a fluke. I've enjoyed it immensely. If the team doesn't win another game the rest of the year and finds itself outside of the playoffs, I won't be upset. That's probably, by rights, where they should end up. If they make the playoffs it will be a blessing.

And yet. And yet.

Do you guys know the team has shitty players on it? I do.

Do you guys know the coach doesn't always coach by the book? I do.

Do you know the team has played well above the level we all expected them to? I do.

Do you guys know your moronic braying about bric n brac is stupid as shit, given the circumstances? I do.

So please, take my advice. Remember the expectations that we all had for this team at the beginning of the season, which was none at all, and judge them to that. You will be much happier.

(Honestly, the same people a month ago who were expressing concern that the team might sell the future to compete this year were the same people last night demanding the team trade the future so that they could compete this year. It's madness. I understand the madness. They've caught the vapours and have fallen for this team. I get it. I've also fallen for this team. It's an easy group to cheer for. But a little perspective, please.)

Furthermore I think Peter Loubardias should be fired.

I found a Hindu chick who is pretty hot, and being a culturally insensitive racist, I'm just going to assume she's a Buddhist.

See? Because I'm advocating detachment?
