I have picked up this rather annoying trait from my dad. You see I pay attention to what teams do prior to facing the Cardinals. And one of the things he has imprinted on me was to dread facing teams who are coming off losing streaks. What, you may ask? How does that make sense?
Let me explain it to you. You see, our logic goes, that a team on a losing streak is going to win at some point. They are not as bad as the losing streak they’re experiencing. And the longer the streak is, the greater the sense that it will end when they face the Cardinals.
