Here’s a tribute to the dedicated hockey fan, the one who can be counted on to cheer for his team, no matter what, right to the bitter end. He proudly wears the team jersey and flies the team flag on his car. He leaves work early so he can get home in time for the big game, and then he stays up late to watch in dismay as a final goal seals his team’s fate in triple overtime.
The next morning, he arrives at work tired and maybe a little hung over. Standing around the water cooler, he loudly complains to his colleagues that the players on his team are a bunch of lazy good-for-nothings. They lack commitment, they do not work hard enough, and they do not always give one hundred and ten percent. As a result, they let down their teammates and everyone else who has been counting on them to do their jobs.
