The Pessimists

There’s a difference between the haters and the pessimists. The haters believe nothing good will ever happen. The pessimists believe good things will happen … and then all of our hopes and dreams will be crushed.

More from Colorado Rockies News

They are the ones who say in a sad voice with the Rockies leading 5-4 in the ninth, “Here comes another bullpen blow-up.” They’re the ones who leave after the sun goes down and the seventh-inning stretch has been sung because “they can’t stand to see another late-inning loss.” They’re the ones who, in the middle of a seven-game winning streak, remind you that the Rockies really haven’t been playing any good teams during that stretch.

They are the ones who are quick to remind you how last year’s team got hot after the All-Star break and then faded because of injuries and blown saves. An opponent’s base hit to open the fourth inning will bring another round of “here we go again” sayings from them.

In early August, they start dusting off their Denver Broncos jerseys because they’re just sure that Colorado’s late-season swoon is coming.

While these fans aren’t as bad as the haters, they’re certainly not the ones you want to be sitting next to during a close game (or maybe any game) at Coors Field.

Avoidance Level: Fairly High
