Being a fan is easy. It should be, at least. That’s what my friends tell me.
But they don’t deal with the emotional investment. The experience of living and dying with every throw. That feeling of believing the team will turn things around... even when everyone knows they won’t.
That’s not easy. And anyone who has done it - especially those of us who root for Mizzou - knows that. And it’s been especially difficult for Mizzou fans this year.
This year has been full of disappointment for Tigers fans. The football team that was supposed to have a legitimate opportunity to win nine or 10 games couldn’t qualify for a bowl game.
