If all you get is a sense of superiority on a messageboard for backing a group of professional athletes who couldnt give a **** about you... ehm.... you know what, forget I brought it up.

What doth breed such irrational contempt?
Their fans, the whole 'Hockeytown' thing, and the general runhot experienced by Detroit over the last 20 years. Now that Lidstrom's gone, it will be a little different.
