  • Finally: “But for one week in June, it all seemed worth it. For one summer, all the pain of all those losses seemed a narrative necessity, the bitter conditions required for that cathartic burst of sweet, thoughtless idiot joy. We leapt in fountains. We scaled lampposts. We fell off our barstools and knelt on our living room floors and wept. And the Capitals’ willingness to celebrate publicly, to make their own stupid happiness accessible to us, gave our own exultation a communal weight—a sense that the irrational one-sided emotions fans project onto our favorite sports boys were, in some impersonal but genuine way, understood and reciprocated.” [Deadspin]
