Holding my breath...

I live in the Cincinnati area and today I heard on 700 WLW P Doc was saying how he wants to "Ride this wave of winning" and "get completely pumped up." Where as I am just as excited as him and a lot of other people, still I hold my breath. I remember maybe 4 seasons ago I'm not sure exactly what season it was but the Reds were very decent at the start. I think through 20 games they were in first place and it seemed that we finally had a good team to cheer for and the feeling was all positive. Almost the next week everything went to hell in a hand basket instantly. I'm not saying I think this will happen again with this team. I'm just afraid of letting myself get too involved because of what Cincinnati teams have done to me in the past and the high probablility of it happening to me again. I don't want to feel that extreme dissapointment again. I used to live and die by the Bengals until the 2006 season tore me to shreds. The reds have done this to me before as well. I feel like if I don't get my hopes up and "get pumped" than I'll be a bad fan wich we have an abundance of in Cincinnati. There in lies my dilemma....

 

Get pumped or to not get pumped? That is the question.

Any sports fan wisdom would be appreciated especially if you're from the 513.
