99% of being a sports fan is getting kicked in the nuts

Kevin Hench names fans of damn near everybody the fans of the year.

Personally, I could have gone without this accolade:

You, the Seattle Seahawks fan, still reeling from the holding call on Sean Locklear, the phantom illegal-block-in-the-back call on a long punt return, the offensive pass interference call on Darrell Jackson and Ben Roethlisberger's non-breaking of the plane.

He forgot to mention appalling clock management. And losing Steve Hutchinson to a managerial cock-up and a poison pill. And the Madden curse.

And why are you deserving of the title, Fan of the Year? Because you'll be back for more missed calls, mistreatment and misery in 2007.

The house always wins.
