Destined To Lose?

I'm pretty sure Arizona is going to lose today. You see, I really want them to win. I've rooted for them before. Back in 1997, when the Cats won it all, Kim was even happy for Lute alongside me after watching Miles Simon and company dethrone the other Wildcats. This is the first time, though, that I've been really invested in a particular group of players. Maybe it's because I see my former student Jack, a team manager, on the bench next to the coaches during games. Maybe it's because I've sat next to the player's families for four years running now during the Cal Bears' annual plastering in Tucson. Maybe it's just because I'm finally feeling like this place is a "home." Whatever the reason, though, I fear that I'm about to be disappointed.
