I don't know if it's cynicism or something else that has so many feeling that if you can't "win it all" then there's no point in playing. That's b.s. imo - competing and making it just one step further next time than you did the last is all I think you need do. It seems like the best way to build a long term success.
But having said that - and I am crushed by losing Crash - I am not convinced that we have no chance to run down Indiana this year.
