Thankless Job

Do you know the worst thing about watching a team and its fan base celebrate winning a championship? Being a Hawks fan and feeling like you're never, ever, ever, ever going to have that opportunity. Why can't the Hawks ever play out of their minds when it matters most? Why do they gladly play the role that everyone expects them to play? The Atlanta Spirit are not creative enough, nor are they committed enough to genuinely make a run at a championship. They just aren't. Year after year we fans hope for a miracle, but deep down we know it's not going to happen. Joe Johnson isn't going to suddenly turn into Kobe Bryant. Al Horford isn't going to magically transform into Tim Duncan. And Larry Drew probably isn't going to turn into Larry Brown. So what are we poor, suffering Hawks fans to do? Well, we're going to continue the thankless job of rooting for this bunch of loveable losers.
We all know there will be no parade on Peachtree Street, because this organization doesn't have what it takes to bring us one. We've made peace with it, I guess.

The simple truth of the matter is that the Hawks are fine with mediocrity. If we stop supporting them and demand a better product before spending our recession depleted dollars management will have to stop coddling these "superstars" and bring in some real talent.as long as we show up to see the competitions players they hav no incentive to change.

I'm not sure that would even work. It's not like they've had great attendance, yet they still haven't been motivated. Atlanta is not a city whose fans show up regardless of how good the team is. So I'm not sure owners would get the message because the attendance has always been predicated on who the opponent is.

Scott Hubbard, a member of the NASA Advisory Council Science Committee and the agency's former "Mars czar," has been assessing the effect the cuts would have on the agency's programs.
